LONDON, ONT. - Tom Henke, Toronto Blue Jays popular closer, will head the class of 2011 inductees in the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in St. Marys, Ont.

Henke was known as The Terminator and will be enshrined on Saturday, June 18.

Henke played 13 seasons in the majors, accumulating 311 saves for Texas, Toronto and St. Louis.

He will be joined by Allan Simpson, a British Columbia native who is the founder of Baseball America, the monthly publication known as the Bible of baseball.

The third inductee is George (Dandy) Wood, born in Prince Edward Island.

Wood played almost 1,300 games in the major leagues in the 1800's. His Canadian citizenship was only discovered a year ago.
