New Inductees To Sports Hall Of Fame

DETROIT (WWJ) – The Michigan Sports Hall of Fame is about to expand its membership.

The 55th class of inductees include: U-M’s Lloyd Carr who served as the head football coach of the Wolverines for over a decade, Detroiter Jerome Bettis, who won a Super Bowl ring with the Pittsburgh Steelers, as well as Carl Banks, Carole Hutchins, Dick LeBeau, Greg Meyer, John Spring, and Ron Thompson.

The Michigan Sports Hall of Fame (MSHOF) is announcing the new class at the MSHOF exhibit: “Sudden Death, Walk-Offs and Buzzer Beaters: Detroit’s Great Sports Comebacks,” at the Detroit Historical Museum.

The exhibit, which runs through Sunday, April 3 in the Detroit Historical Museum’s Community Gallery, highlights both team and individual triumphs throughout the years.

“The sights, sounds and excitement of this exhibit will offer visitors a unique reflection of our beloved Tigers, Lions, Pistons, Red Wings, Wolverines and Spartans through highlighted stories of comebacks with engaging videos and authentic displays,” said Scott Lesher, MSHOF chairman.
