Today the Maryland State Athletic Hall of Fame announced it’s inductees for the Class of 2016. Wheeler Baker, a native of Chester, MD, is a legend in powerboat racing. He is a 10-time winner of the American Power Boat Association National Championships and an eight-time points champion. Baker competed for 30 years (1977-2007) and was inducted into the APBA Hall of Champions in 1987.
Other inductees include Brady Anderson (who played for the Orioles from 1988 to 2001), Louis Carter (football), Gary Jobson (sailing), Laurie Schwoy (soccer), Jack Thomas (lacrosse), and Jim Henneman (who won the John F. Steadman Lifetime Achievment Award). Henneman is a writer, an official scorer for MLB, and he claims to have seen more Orioles games in person than anyone alive.
Congrats to the Class of 2016! The 57th induction ceremony takes place on November 3.
