Larry Walker gets his day in September
Suddenly, September is going to be a busy month for former Colorado Rockies outfielder Larry Walker.
With a shuffling of schedules, the Baseball Hall of Fame will now officially induct Walker on September 8, making him the first-ever Rockies player to gain baseball immortality in Cooperstown.
The Hall of Fame’s induction ceremony move to September 8 means that the celebration for Walker at Coors Field, originally scheduled for August 21, will now take place on September 25. On that day, Walker will be honored in pregame ceremonies and see his jersey number (33) officially retired by the Rockies.
September 25 will also feature a commemorative Larry Walker Hall of Fame Bobblehead for all fans that attend the game. The next day (September 26), a commemorative #33 lapel pin will be given out to the first 15,000 fans. Both giveaways are presented by King Soopers.
