Former Rockies outfielder and Baseball Hall of Famer Larry Walker announced via Twitter that he has tested positive for COVID-19 and is canceling his planned appearances during the MLB All-Star weekend in Denver.

“Sorry Denver!!! I was very much looking forward to attending festivities over the next few days. Even had an awesome little surprise Tuesday,” Walker tweeted Sunday, “But unfortunately I have been bitten by the big ugly animal called COVID-19.”

Walker was originally slated to take part in the celebrity softball game on Sunday.

He said in his tweet that he will be back at Coors Field in September, when his No. 33 will be retired by the Rockies on Sept. 25.

The 54-year-old played with the Rockies from 1995-2004, earning four of his five all-star appearances during his tenure in Colorado. Walker finished his career with seven Gold Gloves, three Silver Slugger awards and was named the 1997 National League MVP. He was selected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2020, in his 10th and final year of voting eligibility.
