Caps Today, 7/10/17

July 10, 2017
Former Capitals radio play-by-play announcer Ron Weber was inducted into the Washington D.C. Sports Hall of Fame on Sunday at Nationals Park. Weber called the team’s first 1,936 games from 1974 to 1997. He also covered NBA, MLB and NCAA games as well as the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City. Weber was the recipient of the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award, given to outstanding hockey radio and television broadcasters, in 2010 from the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto.

The D.C. Sports Hall of Fame began in 1980 when Robert (Bob) Sigholtz created the Hall of Stars in RFK stadium to honor D.C.'s top athletes and sports personalities. Since then, the Hall of Stars has honored over 100 figures ranging from players to coaches to executives to journalists. Each year, the Hall Selection Committee selects new figures to be added based on their past accomplishments and contributions to the D.C. sports scene. The names of D.C. Sports Hall of Fame inductees are prominently displayed at Nationals Park, the site of the annual induction ceremony.
