TORONTO - Count baseball superstar Joey Votto among those impressed by the bravery of Toronto police officer Ken Lam.

Votto, a first baseman with the Cincinnati Reds and a Toronto native, sent Lam a pair of game-worn cleats in appreciation of the officer's arrest of Alek Minassian, who allegedly plowed a van through pedestrians in north Toronto, killing 10 people and injuring 16 others.

Lam was widely lauded for his poise after a video surfaced of him apprehending Minassian without firing a shot on April 23.

The 42-year-old Lam was presented the cleats by hockey personality Nick Kypreos, who posted a picture of the occasion on his Instagram account.
