Binghamton Sports Hall of Fame Inductees & Guest Speaker Announced
It's an awesome event that began in 2014 and it continues to get better every year and this year is no exception. It's the 6th Annual Greater Binghamton Sports Hall of Fame Induction Dinner on April 27th at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Binghamton.
This year's class was revealed on Thursday, February 20th and it includes twelve individuals, one team and a New York Giant legend will be speaking.
The inductees are: Chuck Akulis, Tom Carter, Bill Clark, Harold "Ty" Cobb, Richard "Dick" Foley, Rob Gardiner, Bridget Hobart Janeczko, Crystal A. Joseph, Dan Kosick, Gus Lamp, John Pawlowski, Michele Tidick and the Broome Tech men's basketball team, 1960-61.
This year's speaker is Tiki Barber. The three-time Pro Bowler spent 10 years with the New York Giants and is in the New Giants Ring of Honor. Tiki will join the likes of Joe Giradi, Earl Monroe, Phil Simms, Brian Cashman and Chris Snee who have spoken in the past.
The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. with dinner at 6:30 p.m. and you can buy your tickets here. At the dinner, they'll also be awarding two $1,000 scholarships to the senior male and female student-athletes of the year.
The Binghamton Sports Hall of Fame has no permanent home yet but you can see the plaques of previous winners at the Oakdale Mall by the old Macy's entrance. This is a sell-out every year and this year will be no different.
