Seven New Inductees to be Honored

The Mid Mon Valley All Sports Hall of Fame will hold its 26th annual banquet at The Georgetown Centre, 526 East Bruceton Road Pleasant Hills, PA on Friday, June 21, at 5:30 p.m.

This year, seven new inductees will be welcomed into the mythical Mon Valley Sports Hall of Fame conceived by sportswriters Floyd France and John Bunardzya. With the Class of 2019 the total number of inductees is now 255. The original Mon Valley Sports Writers Hall of Fame started in 1951 with the selection of Stan Musial and Bert Rechichar.

The Class of 2019 is comprised of Mon Valley Catholic’s Ron Bertovich, Charleroi’s Lew Rawls, Elizabeth Forward’s Lenny Smith, Ringgold’s Rod Ferdorchak, Belle Vernon Area’s Marlon McIntyre, Monessen’s Charel Allen and deceased Patsy DeBerardinis of Mon Valley Catholic. General Chairman of the Sports Hall of Fame, Steve Russell, called the selections “a representative class with a cross section of Mon Valley athletes who have honored their communities with their dedication to sports.”

The MMVASHOF selection committee includes Chairman Brian Herman, Carl Crawley, Jr, Dale Hamer, Tom Jenkins, Bill Kubin, Randy Marino, Stan Milchovich (deceased), Steve Russell, Bill Hughes, Rob Harhai, Dr. Kevin Ryan and Dennis Stitch.

The Mid Mon Valley All Sports Hall of Fame is one of 2,830 chapters of The Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame made up of four geographical regions: Central, Eastern, Northern and Western. Organized with its inaugural induction class in 1963, the state ceremonial dinner rotates between four regions. The Mid Mon Valley chapter has inducted 23 members into the State Hall of Fame. They include: Stan Musial, Bert Rechichar, Jim Russell, Arnold Galiffa, Dan Towler, John Potsklan, Sever J. Toretti, H.C. Carlson, Lou “Bimbo” Cecconi, Armand Niccolai, Bap Manzini, Ken Griffey, Fred Cox, Ron Necciai, Myron Pottios, Bill Malinchak, Sam Havrilak, Dale Hamer, Eric Crabtree, Craig Fayak, Fred Mazurek, Robert “Red” Worrell, and this past year, Bruce Del Canton.

Along with the Hall of Fame inductees, eighteen senior scholar athletes from the local Mon Valley high schools will also be honored at this years banquet. Those high schools include Belle Vernon Area, Bentworth, Brownsville, California, Charleroi, Elizabeth Forward, Monessen, Ringgold, and Yough.

Tickets are $50 and seating is limited. To reserve tickets or request program book sponsorship contact Steve Russell, Hall of Fame General Chairman, at 724-258-3823 or email to stephenrussell1106@comcast.net
