MIDDLETOWN — Former NFL defensive back Amari Spievey, former Los Angeles Dodgers minor league pitcher Mike Fiala and the undefeated 1969 Wesleyan University football team headline the Middletown Sports Hall of Fame’s newly announced 2020 selectees.
The Hall of Fame’s 26th class, recently revealed by president David Gallitto, also includes Chris Brown, Jim Foley, Hal Guy, Sandy Hoffman, Tony Pulino, Marty Ryczek, Frank Shekosky, Maggie Smith and the 1980 Xavier High baseball team.
The inductees cover a range of athletics — football, baseball, soccer, track and field, field hockey, martial arts, and officiating. While Spievey reached the highest level of his sport, others excelled in college and the minor leagues or distinguished themselves at the national level in their chosen pursuits.
The induction ceremony will be held Jan. 23 at the Red Lion Hotel in Cromwell.
