The Milton Sports Hall of Fame inducted an outstanding new class of builders and athletes to its hallowed temple of athletic high achievers on Thursday, November 14th.
Former NHL and AHL star Darren Haydar and national softball titan Neil Teague entered in the athlete category, while legendary Milton Springers gymnastics coach Janet Campbell, longtime NHL linesman Leon Stickle and outstanding Toronto Blue Jays scout Jim Ridley (posthumously) joined in the builder category.
This is the fourth consecutive year the MSHOF has hosted an induction ceremony, with 20 inductees having now been bestowed with Milton’s highest athletic honour. The non-profit corporation, led by President Joe Yaworski and MSHOF’s dedicated volunteer board members, welcomed this year’s class, their friends and family, and members of the public to a red-carpet induction ceremony at the Milton Sports Centre’s main gymnasium.
Milton has a rich sports history; many elite-level athletes were born, grew up or have moved into Milton. The Milton Sports Hall of Fame provides an opportunity to recognize, honour and preserve sports accomplishments and contributions of our community.
