NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - Inside Scope Arena Tuesday night, seven sports legends with ties to Hampton Roads became official inductees into the Hampton Roads Sports Hall of Fame.
The 2013 class includes Marty Brennaman, who started his career as the radio voice of the Virginia Squires and Tidewater Tides in the early 1970s. Brennaman, born and raised in Portsmouth, has since lent his voice as the lead play-by-play radio announcer of the Cincinnati Reds.
"I did William and Mary football and Virginia Tech football, and to come back and to be honored like this is really something special to me. This is my home-state," said Brennaman.
James and LeVerne Sweat are inducted as husband and wife. James, a long-time head women's basketball coach at Norfolk State University, won 529 games, while his wife LeVerne coached the Spartans' women's basketball team for six seasons, and later coached the women's basketball team for 19 years. LeVerne also lead the track teams at both programs to national prominence, and even served as an assistant on Team USA during the 2000 Olympics in Sydney.
Old Dominion basketball fans would know the names Paul Webb and Leo Anthony, who were both inducted. Webb coached the Monarchs men's team and won 511 games, while Anthony became one of the best players to ever wear an ODU jersey.
Anthony scored 2,181 points and still holds the records for scoring average in a season (31 points per game) and scoring average over a career (26.6 points per game). Anthony became a fixture in the community as a high school basketball and golf coach.
Jack Baker is one of the most recognizable names in Maury High School basketball history. After a stellar career at Maury, Baker coached his alma mater's boys basketball squad and became just the sixth coach in Virginia history to win 600 games.
The Hall honored and inducted the late Bud Methany, who passed away in 2003. Methany played baseball at the College of William and Mary, and later won a World Series with the New York Yankees in 1943.
