About 300 people were in attendance at Almansor Court Oct. 20 as the class of 2019 was inducted into the Alhambra High School Athletic Hall of Fame. Current Los Angeles Angels Pitcher Noe Ramirez was inducted along Alex Morrison, Bob Rippen, Phil Keathley, Joe Losorelli, Craig Blower, Fred Whittingham, Gary Neeley, Dan Guzman, Sam Battle, Dan Ayers, Jan Crawford, Mario Molina, Joy Petway, Phillip Benavides, and Aeric Allen.
In addition, Stu Spencer, Frank Cano, and Tony Ortega were inducted as Distinguished Alumni.
There were 25 past Hall of Fame inductees present ranging from as far back as the class of 1955. One of the best athletes to attend Alhambra High School, Scott Larson, was the keynote speaker and told stories of growing up in Alhambra in the 1950s and 1960s.
Former Sports Editor of the Post-Advocate newspaper Lonnie Teper served as the master of ceremonies and introduced each inductee with an impressive bio highlighting their accomplishments.
The inductees were presented with plaques, medals, and certificates. Alhambra Mayor Adele Andrade-Stadler was in attendance along with Councilmembers David Mejia, Jeff Maloney, and Vice Mayor Ross Maza.
The AHS HOF Committee thanks all who helped make this event a success and a special day for many. Plans are being made for the next HOF Luncheon in 2021.
