    Chicago Cubs radio announcer Pat Hughes’ eloquence on the microphone has made him synonymous with summer baseball on the North Side. Hughes, 67, has been the radio voice for a generation of Cubs fans since taking over the role in 1996. The team will honor him for his contributions by inducting Hughes and former outfielder José Cardenal into the Cubs Hall of Fame. The late Buck O’Neil — a longtime scout and coach for the Cubs — also earned a plaque through his election this year to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The trio will be inducted Sept. 10. President of business operations Crane Kenney revealed the news to Hughes during the third inning of Wednesday’s radio broadcast of the Cubs’ 7-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals at Wrigley Field. “I’m amazed, I really am.

    The third member of the Warriors’ Run TMC trio will be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame this summer. Tim Hardaway has received the call from the Hall, joining Mitch Richmond and Chris Mullin to complete the Golden State trifecta. NBC Sports Bay Area’s Monte Poole first reported the news. A source confirmed Hardaway’s induction to sports editor Bud Geracie. The official announcement is expected Saturday. Hardaway played the first six-and-a-half years of his career with the Warriors, earning three All-Star nods and orchestrating Don Nelson’s entertaining, up-and-down style of basketball.

The Warriors were among the top three scoring teams in the NBA for the first five years of Hardaway’s career, including the 1993-94 season he missed with a knee injury.

Joining them in the next class of inductees are two Black women inventors who changed the way we work and see.
