For some longtime D.C. sports fans, Glenn Brenner is about as beloved as any athlete or coach who’s ever been through this town.
Those fans will be pretty happy to learn that Brenner — the hilarious former WUSA sports anchor who died way too soon — headlines this week’s D.C. Sports Hall of Fame induction ceremony, being held Sunday afternoon at Nats Park.
The other inductees include Adrian Dantley, Darrell Green, former St. John’s basketball coach and AD Joe Gallagher, longtime sportswriter Sam Lacy, and former UDC women’s basketball coach Bessie Stockard.
The press release says that honorees “were selected based on their outstanding contributions to the world of sports, thereby bringing honor and recognition to the Nation’s Capital while furthering the high standards of athletics in the Greater Washington community.” Their names will be added to the “Hall of Fame” display at Nats Park, on the side of Garage B, facing the field.
