This November, the San Jose Sports Hall of Fame will induct its first member from the San Jose Sharks organization. On Wednesday, the organization announced that George Gund, the Sharks original owner, and still a minority investor, will be honored.
Gund had the final say on arguably the biggest sports call in San Jose history, locating his expansion NHL club in San Jose rather than San Francisco and Oakland, a decision that has been fruitful for both the city and the club for almost 20 years.
The induction ceremony is scheduled for November at HP Pavilion (a specific date is still being determined) with a VIP reception and silent auction followed by dinner. To order tickets, fans can call 408.288.2936.
