PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Eddie George, Geno Auriemma and John LeClair are just a few of the new members who were inducted into the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame.

Over the last 10 years, the Hall has inducted former players from all over the sports spectrum.

Names like Bernie Parent, Carl Lewis and Charles Barkley have all been added to the annals.

This is Greg Luzinski’s second trip into the Hall.

He also made it in with the 1980 Phillies.

“This is exciting for me. to be a part of history not only Phillies history but the history of Philadelphia,” Luzinski said.

Former Flyer great John LeClair says Philly trumps any other city he’s played in and that’s part of the reason he is happy to still be able to call this area home.

“I had some success in Montreal, I won a Stanley cup. But when I think about my career I think about it as playing for the Flyers a lot,” LeClair said.

There were a total of 17 inductees in this year’s class.
