    CHICAGO (CBS) — Doug Bruno has long been synonymous with DePaul basketball. His women’s team had gone to 17 straight NCAA tournaments until last season. Now he’s heading somewhere new, as part of the 2022 class of the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame.

It’s what’s inside that heart and guts of the athlete, the competitive spirit inside that that athlete and that’s got nothing to do with gender.” Doug Bruno has brought the best out of DePaul players for 36 seasons and counting, and now he’s being rewarded, finding out he’s headed to the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame the same way everyone else did. “On television, basically that’s the way you learn this,” Bruno said. “It’s an honor. It’s a thrill.” While the congratulations poured in into the wee hours… READ MORE: Family Of Sincere Cole, 15, Calls On Witnesses To Come Forward After He Was Murdered In Chicago Lawn“Three-thirty in the morning, and the texts...
    Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling once again did not get elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame after ten years of being on the ballot. To earn a slot in the hall of fame, a candidate needs to earn 75 percent of the vote, and though Schilling appeared to be trending that way over the past few years of being on the ballot, he earned only 58.6 percent of the vote this year. His lack of support likely stems from the fact he requested to be removed from the ballot last year after earning 71.1 percent of the vote. “I can say at this point I am mentally done,” he wrote in an open letter. “I know math and I know trends and I know I will not attain the 75% threshold for induction. “I will not participate in the final year of voting,” he added. “I am requesting to be removed from the ballot. I’ll defer to the veterans committee and men whose opinions actually matter and who are in a position to actually judge a player.” PHILADELPHIA,...
    BOSTON (CBS) — While David Ortiz got his call to the National Baseball Hall of Fame on Tuesday, four polarizing and controversial players in baseball history did not. For Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds, Curt Schilling and Sammy Sosa, Tuesday was their last chance to make it to Cooperstown by way of traditional voting. All four fell short of getting the required 75 percent of votes in their tenth and final season on the ballot, with Bonds getting 66 percent, Clemens 65.2 percent, Schilling 58.6 percent and Sosa just 18.5 percent. Those four will no longer appear on the BBWAA ballot, so their next shot to get into the Hall of Fame rests on the Today’s Game committee, which will vote at next December’s Winter Meetings. Bonds, Clemens and Sosa certainly put up Hall of Fame numbers during their career, but all three are clouded with PED controversies. Schilling came close to getting his call to Cooperstown, but a series of controversies in his post-baseball days derailed his chances. The former Red Sox postseason hero was just 16 votes short of...
    BOSTON (CBS) — David Ortiz got a very important phone call on Tuesday night, letting him know that he is now a Baseball Hall of Famer. Big Papi was pretty pumped to receive that call. Ortiz was in the Dominican Republic surrounded by family and friends — including former Boston teammate and fellow Hall of Famer Pedro Martinez — when he received the news from Jack O’Connell of the BBWAA. “I’m calling you from Cooperstown, New York to let you know that the baseball writers have elected you to the National Baseball Hall of Fame,” O’Connell told Ortiz. With that, Ortiz threw his arms in the air and let out an emphatic “YES!” before giving his father and Martinez a massive bear hug. The Red Sox shared that moment with the world on Twitter shortly after Ortiz received the news: Cooperstown is calling! pic.twitter.com/de1K5bHxlZ — Red Sox (@RedSox) January 25, 2022 That is just pure joy on everyone’s face.

Two or three words, ideally. Hence my cautious optimism that #FloodTheHall will move the needle for someone who very much belongs in the Baseball Hall of Fame: Courageous groundbreaker (and pretty darn good outfielder as well) Curt Flood. “I just think that it’s a very clever, catchy hook and it raises questions,” Judy Pace Flood, Flood’s widow, said last week in a telephone interview, “and those who know will definitely give the information. I can’t wait to put mine on.” She’s referring to the #FloodTheHall T-shirt, which can be purchased online now and which, fingers crossed, will be worn en masse by the current major-league players later...
    Calvin Johnson has officially carved out his spot in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. It was announced Saturday night that the legendary Detroit Lions wide receiver was elected to the HoF after an insane career in the league. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) He will forever be remembered as arguably the greatest receiver to ever lace up cleats in the NFL.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Detroit Lions (@detroitlionsnfl) I can’t even begin to tell you all how happy I am for Megatron. The man 100% deserved to get in, and it’s now a done deal. He carried the Lions on his back for years, and while he never won a playoff game, the man represented Detroit at a high level at all times. ???? Hall-of-Fame highlights ???? Congrats, @calvinjohnsonjr pic.twitter.com/qcfwpBtItJ — Detroit Lions (@Lions) February 7, 2021 Johnson was also just straight up unstoppable on the gridiron.

    New York Yankees: No Yankees elected to the Hall of Fame, but they weren’t alone By: William Parlee January 27, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditNo New York Yankees player was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, but those Yankee players weren’t alone. For the first time since 2013, no player this year received the honor of being enshrined with other baseball greats. Results were announced Tuesday night by Hall of Fame president Tim Mead, and none of the 24 candidates made it. There were 401 ballots cast, although 14 sportswriters turned in empty ballots. Here is how the Yankee candidates made out. BOBBY ABREU, RF Abreu played for the Yankees only three years between 2006 and 2008. He was on the ballot for the second time and received 8.7% of the votes. For the Yankees, he batted .295 with 43 home runs. His best years were with the Philadephia Phillies. The closest he came to an MVP was in 2009 with the Los Angeles Angels. A.J. BURNETT, RHP Unfortunately for Burnett, he was...
    Accused steroids users Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, as well as controversial conservative Curt Schilling, were all passed over for induction into Cooperstown on Tuesday as it was revealed that no new candidates were selected to the Hall of Fame for just the ninth time since 1936.   Candidates need support from 75 percent of Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA) voters - around 400 credentialed baseball reporters who are allowed to name as many as 10 players on their respective ballots.  Those who are not approved after 10 years on the main BBWAA ballot will be considered by the Era Committees (also known as the veteran's committee), which is really three separate committees of players who have the power to enshrine candidates who are no longer eligible to be voted on by the writers. However, with the Hall of Fame's Era Committees postponing their scheduled elections until next offseason because of the pandemic, there won't be a 2021 Hall class. 'Former players will be the ultimate judge, as it should be,' tweeted Schilling, who has previously claimed that his support...
