State Hall Will Add Local Flavor


Wald, Bruce, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


Two recognizable members of the Mid Mon Valley All Sports Hall of Fame and an area collegiate coach will be part of the 44th annual Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame's induction class.

The late Jim Russell, of Fayette City, and Bap Manzini, of Belle Vernon, who were 1952 and 1979 MMVASHOF inductees respectively, will join two-time Olympic gold medalist and California University of Pennsylvania women's and men's cross country/track and field head coach Roger Kingdom.

The rest of the 2006 Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame induction class includes Robert Bessoir (basketball), Joseph Cesari (wrestling), Mark Duda (football), Pete Duranko (football), Betsy King (golf), Diane Madi (field hockey), Joe Perkowski (football), Paul Stehman (wrestling) and the deceased Joseph Schaaf (football, basketball, baseball).

This year's induction ceremony and dinner will take place at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 4 at the Genetti Best Western Motor Lodge, Hazleton.

Cost of the event is $35 per person and reservation forms are due Oct. 21. For more information or to make a reservation, contact John M. McCormick, 743 Prescott Ave., Scranton, PA 18510. The phone number is 570-346-2228.

One of 28 chapter members of the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame, the MMVASHOF has had 11 of its inductees elevated to the state hall of fame. The other MMVASHOF inductees elected into the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame before Manzini and Russell were Dr. Red Carlson (football), Arnold Galiffa (football), Ken Griffey Sr. (baseball), Stan Musial (baseball), Armand Niccolai (football), John Potsklan (football), Bert Rechichar (football), Sever J. Toretti (football), and the Rev. Dr. Dan "Deacon" Towler (football).

More than 7,000 voting members from the 28 different Hall of Fame chapters through the Keystone State who are active members of the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame voted for this year's class.

Three years ago at the statewide induction ceremony, the Mid Mon Valley Chapter was one of 18 organizations cited for their support in the Pennsylvania Hall of Fame's Gold Medallion program. The Mid Mon Valley Chapter was recognized for supporting the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame in a number of different ways, including membership and fund drives.

The Western Chapter nominated Kingdom, who ran track and played football at the University of Pittsburgh and now resides in Monroeville.

Manzini, a native of Monongahela, was an Associated Press All- State offensive center at St. Vincent College, near Latrobe, who went on to play professional football for both the Philadelphia Eagles and Detroit Lions in the 1940s. He enjoyed a prolific career as a high school football coach.
