Fox honored to be among "the select few"

Posted:
On April 20th, 16 members of the Binghamton sports community will be enshrined as the inaugural class of the Greater Binghamton Sports Hall of Fame. Among the honorees, former Press & Sun Bulletin Columnist John W. Fox who spent 60 years covering Binghamton sports. For Fox, it's an honor to be mentioned in the same category as guys like King Rice, Isaiah Kacyvenski, Johnny Logan, Fran Angeline, and Dick Hoover, among others.

"Obviously I'm greatly honored," Fox said. "I've been here a long time. The length of time here isn't my qualification. But, I still feel in the select few, obviously. And it's good to see, as you will agree, someone from the media involved."

The inaugural class is comprised of Angeline, Bob Campbell, Fox, Carl Gaffney, Bess Greenberg, Jack Hollaran, Kacyvenski, Hidy Ochiai, Rice, and Ray Stanton, Sr. Being honored posthumously, Alex Alexander, Richard Baldwin, Hoover, Logan, Ron Luciano, and Jim Matthews, Sr. All ten living inductees as well as members of the families of all six deceased inductees are expected to be in attendance at the dinner.

The induction dinner will be held April 20th at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Binghamton. Former New York Giant Chris Snee will be the guest speaker. Tickets are $65 and can be purchased by visiting www.AJQsports.com.
