The Montreal Expos drafted Tim Raines out of Seminole High School (Sanford, Florida) during the fifth round of the 1977 Amateur Baseball Draft. In 1981, Raines posted one of the more memorable rookie seasons in MLB history. In just 88 games, Raines managed to lead the majors with 71 stolen bases and finished right behind Fernando Valenzuela for the National League Rookie of the Year Award. During his 12 full seasons with the Expos, Raines led the NL in stolen bases four times and was selected to seven MLB All-Star Games. He played for the Chicago White Sox from 1991 - 1995 before joining the New York Yankees in 1996. He played three seasons in New York and played a big part of the 1996 and 1998 World Series Championship teams. Raines retired after the 2002 season with 808 career stolen bases, which is the fifth highest total in MLB history and the third highest of the Live-Ball Era. He is arguably the greatest eligible player not elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame.
In August 2015, Tim Raines will be signing autographs at the National Sports Collectors Convention in Rosemont, Illinois.
