VOLUNTEER RECEIVES PRESTIGIOUS HONOR FOR ILLUSTRIOUS CAREER
New York, NY - On September 24, legendary sports announcer, Spencer Ross will be recognized with the 2009 class of the New York City Basketball Hall of Fame.
The induction ceremony will take place at the New York Athletic Club in mid-town Manhattan. Ross is a nationally known Play-by-Play sportscaster, as well as a long-time Madison Square Garden announcer. He will receive the NYC Basketball Hall of Fame Trustees Award, the highest honor one can receive from the organization as a non-player or coach.
With the exception of the New York Mets, Ross has called play-by-play for every professional New York metropolitan area sports franchise, including the Yankees, Knicks, Nets, Jets, Giants, Rangers, Islanders and Devils. Nationally, he has worked for the NFL on NBC and Major League Baseball and has called games for the Florida State Seminoles and Boston Celtics.
Since 2007, Ross has regularly volunteered as a public address announcer at almost all Big Apple Basketball events and is looking forward to the ceremony.
"When I heard I was going in, I almost broke down crying," said Ross. "It's a tremendous honor and a great group I'm going in with. I hope I can continue to assist Big Apple Basketball. It's been my privilege and it signalizes all that's good about the game in New York City."
Ross attended Florida State University on a basketball scholarship and, while there, called baseball and basketball games for the Seminoles
