Michigan Sports Hall of Fame
The Michigan Sports Hall of Fame is a Hall of Fame to honor Michigan sports people. It was organized in 1954 by Michigan Lieutenant Governor Philip Hart, Michigan State University athletic director Biggie Munn, president of the Greater Michigan Foundation Donald Weeks, general manager of the Detroit Lions W. Nicholas Kerbawy and George Alderton of the Lansing State Journal. The inaugural class was inducted in 1955. James Stark is executive director of the Michigan Sports Hall of Fame and Scott Lesher is its chairman. Because of the economy, the Hall of Fame did not induct any members in 2008 and 2009. The Hall of Fame is currently looking for a permanent place to call home.
The Michigan Sports Hall of Fame also sponsors the Michigan MAC Trophy.
