Class of 2014

What began as the dream of one man reaches a major milestone Friday night, as the Atlanta Sports Hall of Fame celebrates its 10th anniversary.

Ted Turner, John Smoltz, George Rogers, Antonio McKay, Cindy Brogdon and Corky Kell will all be inducted into the hall during its induction ceremony.

Larry Winter, founder and president of the hall, realized one day that Atlanta was the only Georgia city without its own sports hall of fame. With the support of numerous volunteers, Winter and the Hall have inducted the metro area’s most famous sports figures, all of whom have lent their presence and support to the organization. You’ll probably recognize some of these names …

Bobby Cox, Evander Holyfield, Claude Humphrey, Edwin Moses, Gayle Barron, Furman Bisher, Hank Aaron, Tom Glavine, Steve Bartkowski, Bill Hartman, Dr. Homer Rice … A list of all of the hall’s members the list can be found here.

Congratulations to the Atlanta Sports Hall of Fame for 10 years of excellence.
