The Indiana Sports Hall of Fame is planning a huge inaugural weekend, holding the announcement Wednesday afternoon at the Civic Center in Evansville.

Thanks to Coronavirus, the first two class inductions, 2020 and 2021, were postponed. So, now they'll be joining the 2022 class on May 13th and 14th at the Old National Bank Events Plaza.

It's setting up to be a special weekend, with guest speakers like Indiana University basketball legend Kent Benson, as well as former Purdue coach Gene Keady and former NBA bench boss Del Harris coming to town.

President and CEO of the Indiana Sports Hall of Fame Tim Turpin expects a massive turnout for those two days in May.

"We're expecting 1,500 each night," says Turpin. "Last year we filled one hundred 65 tables just for the speaking engagement in eight days. Because of COVID, we had to give it all back. But last year we were limited to one hundred tables on the banquet, because there was a prom next door. This year we've got the whole convention center, just like Friday night."

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some highe amounts to the south, we're waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper teens across the Tri-State. Thankfully, road crews did a fantastic job treating the roads to keep conditions from getting slick. However, the northerly winds gusting as high as 15 to 20 mph has dropped wind chill values into the single digits and even below zero in our western communities. There won't be much of an improvement in temperatures this afternoon. With the strong northerly wind flow and dry skies our highs will only reach the mid to upper 20s. Winds will stay quite breezy keeping the wind chill factor in place through the day.
