A CAMPAIGN to induct a cricketer into Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame for the first time is gathering momentum. You may not have heard of him but Frederick Heather above far left is a Canadian cricket hero. I must admit a vested interest – he was my great uncle. I was only two when he died in 1976 but have taken care of Heather’s unique and large cricket collection, which includes a letter from Jack Hobbs.
