Did you know that Tim Wallach won a Silver Slugger Award in 1985 (and 1987), the first Montreal Expos third baseman to receive the honor? Did you know that Wallach was only the second National League third baseman to win at the hot corner due to Mike Schmidt winning the award every year since its inception?

Mike Schmidt won nine consecutive Gold Glove Awards at third base , the most in the National League. Tim Wallach ended that streak as well, capturing the Gold Glove in 1985 (and 1988 & 1990), also the first Montreal Expos third baseman to win a Gold Glove at the hot corner.

On September 6, 1980 , Tim Wallach made his Major League debut, pinch hitting for Ron LeFlore in the top of the eighth inning, and during his first at-bat, he hit a home run off Giants lefty Philip Nastu - the first Expos player to hit a home run during his first at bat .

Tim Wallach was inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame in 2014 [ Press Release ]. Why? Eli is the Montreal Expos ' all-time leader in hits (1,695), doubles (360), RBIs (905), total bases (2,728) and games played (1,767). Three years earlier, Eli had been inducted into the College Baseball Hall of Fame ( Class of 2011 ) where his biography reads:

Tim Wallach
Cal State Fullerton / 1978-79

Tim Wallach helped bring national attention to Cal State Fullerton while playing first base from 1978 to 1979. During his junior year in 1978, Wallach set school records for batting average (.394), home runs (16), RBIs (80) and slugging percentage (.715) while leading the Titans to the Southern California Baseball Association championship and an NCAA Regional berth. He also was named SCBA Player of the Year. During his senior campaign, Wallach topped nearly every statistic from the previous year with a .392 batting average, 23 home runs, 102 RBIs and a .740 slugging percentage. His 102 single-season RBIs is still a school record. The Titans again won the SCBA title and also went on to win an NCAA Regional Championship and the College World Series. In 1980, Wallach was named a first-team All-American by ABCA and The Sporting News and won the Golden Spikes Award .
