1990 AP Laser Wire Photos

 March 24, 1990: This was taken during Spring Training.  Whatever Wallach did during Spring Training must have worked, because he would go on to have one his best seasons in 1990, winning the Expos Triple-Crown leading the team in home runs, batting average, and RBI's.  He would also be an All-Star, win a Gold Glove, and finish 10th in NL MVP voting.

 April 24, 1990: Taken during a 5-3 win in Houston Astro Dome.  Wallach went 2 for 4 with a home run and 3 RBI's.

 April 27, 1990:  The caption on this picture is wrong.  Look at this box score from Friday April 17, 1990.  Sabo hit a weak dribbler down the third base line in the 1st inning and was given a hit.  This doesn't look to be that play.  Sabo then advanced all the way to 3rd base on a botched pick-off attempt. I would guess this picture is from the throw to 3rd on that play.  In any event, Wallach wasn't charged an error in this game, or the games the day before or after.

May 10, 1990: The Expos beat the Dodgers 8-2 in this game.  Wallach went 2 for 4 with a double.
