"On Dec. 12, Emrick becomes the first media member inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame."
Dean of American hockey announcers enters U.S. Hall
It was 51 years ago Saturday night that his parents took Mike Emrick to his first hockey game to watch the Fort Wayne Komets take on the Muskegon Zephyrs at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum. In June 2011 I blogged about Doc and his roots in Fort Wayne and Northeast Indiana.

Congratulations to Doc and thanks to him for helping me enjoy so many memorable hockey moments. It is a richly-deserved honor. I wonder if Bob Chase will be there for the induction ceremony.
