Since it’s inception in 2000, the PCSHOF has inducted 83 star athletes from 12 different sports. The new museum features photos, videos, jerseys, equipment and just about every type of sports memorabilia that one could imagine. There’s even a scale model of the famed Miss Budweiser hydroplane racing boat. The opening of the museum brings to fruition more than a year’s worth of work and dedication by PCTSM staff, with Hank Longo and Mary Anne Roberts deserving of special recognition.
