They’re all working elsewhere.

Yet, the St. Marys Expos will have a nice ring to it on June 21.

Former Montreal Expos employees Tim Wallach, Murray Cook and Dave Van Horne were elected to the Canadian Hall of Fame on Monday, along with the late Jim Ridley, who scouted for the Toronto Blue Jays and Minnesota Twins, as well as coaching Team Canada. They’ll be inducted on June 21 in St. Marys, Ont.

Former Montreal third baseman Wallach, 56, of Huntington Beach, Calif., now a bench coach for the Los Angeles Dodgers, is on the short list of candidates for any managerial openings. He was interviewed by the Detroit Tigers and Boston Red Sox until they worked out a trade with the Jays for John Farrell two years ago.

Ex-Expos broadcaster Van Horne, instrumental in hiring Tom Cheek with the Expos before Cheek came to Toronto, and a Ford C. Frick winner, paints vivid descriptions for Miami Marlins fans from his radio booth.
