(Professional Athlete, Inducted 2012)
Steve was known as one of the best "divers" in the sport of racquetball.  He beat some of the finest athletes in the game including Marty Hogan, Bill Schmidtke, Steve Keeley, Jerry Hilecher, and Charlie Brumfield...to mention just a few.  Steve was noted for his hustle and awesome backhand.  He could consistently kill the ball during a flat-out dive and make it look normal. Winner of first professional event in 1973 and never lost a doubles match with partner Charlie Brumfield.  Went 50 straight events finishing in the top 4.

(Contributor, Inducted 2012)
Art (literally) changed the way we all viewed the sport.  Through his expertise, we were able to eliminate the darkness, the green tinge, the graininess, the reflections, and the nothing-but-backsides photographs that filled early racquetball publications. Racquetball benefited enormously from Art's contributions as a photographer, photojournalist, author, and proponent of the sport.
