Michigan Sports Hall inducting dozen new members

NOVI, MI – NASCAR team owner Jack Roush, University of Michigan quarterback-turned-major-leaguer Rick Leach and prolific Detroit Lions wide receiver Herman Moore are among the newest inductees heading into the Michigan Sports Hall of Fame.

The trio and nine others will be inducted Monday night at the Rock Financial Showplace in Novi.

The event is the 54th in the Hall's history. The inductees were announced in 2008, but due to financial issues, ceremonies over the past two years have been postponed.

The other new class members are Bob Becker, George Blaha, Steve Fraser, Bill Fleming, Marian Ilitch, Meg Mallon, Eddie Murray and Jon Urbanchek. Carolina Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos was a member of a past class and also is to be inducted Monday.
