Walker first made a name for himself as a standout player at LSU, where he earned All-American honors twice and played a crucial role in leading the Tigers to the 1993 NCAA Men’s College World Series title. Walker is arguably the greatest player in LSU baseball history, breaking several school and conference records en route to becoming a finalist for the Golden Spikes and Smith Award for two straight seasons. As a freshman, Walker became the first LSU player to hit .400 in a single season, leading the Tigers in batting average (.400), runs (72), hits (100), RBI (76), doubles (21), triples (3), homers (12) and slugging percentage (.652).

He was selected by the Minnesota Twins as the eighth overall pick in the 1994 MLB Draft. Walker’s professional career began with the Twins in 1996, marking the start of a successful 12-year journey in the major leagues. Known for his consistent hitting and versatility in the infield, Walker played for several teams, including the Colorado Rockies, Cincinnati Reds, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, San Diego Padres, and Oakland Athletics. Throughout his career, he maintained a solid .289 batting average, hit 107 home runs, and drove in 545 runs.

Walker was named to the Omaha World-Herald’s all-time College World Series team and is a 2009 inductee of the College Baseball Hall of Fame and 2011 inductee of the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame. His jersey was retired by LSU in 2017. Walker is a native of Bossier City, La.
