Cardinals chairman, Bill DeWitt Jr., claimed that Walker was the key to their return to play in the World Series in 2004 – after being absent for 17 consecutive years. Although they lost against the Boston Red Sox, it was an experience that none would ever forget.

Included in the list of names are Roger Clemens and the second Barry Bonds, 2 players who are accused of using steroids or enhancing drugs. Both of them refuse to use the same drugs for enhancement to help them hit huge home runs or be capable of staying focused in the field. But neither Bonds or Clemens were able to get 75% that is the amount required to get to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

There were another 30 candidates that could have been included in the hall-of-fame elite group; however it was Jeter as well as Walker who were chosen. They played in a manner that was prevalent in the past when baseball was played in its heyday. They worked to the same level as they were able to, but they were aware that to reach their goals there was no shortcut.
