The Class of 2018
  The San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame has announced its Class of 2018. Former San Antonio Spurs small forward Mike Mitchell, San Antonio Stars point guard and six-time WNBA All-Star Becky Hammon, San Antonio Sports founder and associate executive director of event operations Bill Hanson, and businessman Gordon Hartman, who created Soccer for a Cause, the spark that reignited professional soccer in San Antonio, will be recognized at the San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame Tribute on Saturday, January 27, 2018 in the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.

San Antonio Stars point guard Becky Hammon played 16 seasons in the WNBA and in 2016 was recognized as one of the league's top 20 most influential players. The six-time All-Star retired in 2014 and her #25 jersey hangs in the AT&T Center today. 

Bill Hanson, whose event management experience spans 40 years on the local, national and international stage, was a founder of San Antonio Sports and former executive director of the U.S. Modern Pentathlon. 

Businessman Gordon Hartman established Soccer for a Cause, which became an important source of financial support for the special-needs community through the NASL San Antonio Scorpions and the development of Toyota Field.

San Antonio Spurs small forward Mike Mitchell averaged 20.1 points per game in seven seasons with the team, ranking his scoring average fifth in franchise history. Mitchell passed away in 2011. 

The San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame is a partnership between San Antonio Sports, the City of San Antonio, and San Antonio Express-News. The black-tie San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame Tribute, where the Class of 2018 will be inducted, will be held on Saturday, January 27, in the Stars at Night Ballroom of the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center and feature a live performance from THE MIDTOWN MEN, four stars from the original cast of JERSEY BOYS.

Proceeds from the San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame Tribute benefit San Antonio Sports' kids programs. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit
