The Last Word: Tim Raines

Our 2007 interview with Tim Raines

by J.S. Trzcienski @canadiensMTL / canadiens.com

Tim Raines is undeniably one of Montreal's favorite adopted sons. After breaking in with Major League Baseball's Expos in 1979 at the tender age of 19, "Rock" proceeded to thrill fans at Olympic Stadium for over a decade with his incomparable eye at the plate and speed on the basepaths. Though he went on to win a World Series with the Yankees as a player and White Sox as a coach, the seven-time All-Star maintains a special bond with the city where it all began. Leading up to tonight's announcement from the Baseball Hall of Fame, have a look at our magazine interview with Tim Raines from March 2007.
