TORONTO (AP) - Still waiting for Cooperstown, Tim Raines can say he's a Hall of Famer.
The former Montreal Expos outfielder was selected for induction Thursday into the Canadian Baseball of Fame. Also included in the class of 2013 are former outfielders George Bell and Rob Ducey as well as former announcer Tom Cheek and longtime minor league owner Nat Bailey.
No players were elected into baseball's Hall of Fame this year by the Baseball Writers' Association of America. Raines was fifth in BBWAA balloting with 297 votes (52.2 per cent), well short of the 75 per cent required for induction.
