On August 10th, 2014 at Safeco Field Detlef Schrempf was among seven athletes voted into the State of Washington Sports Hall of Fame.
"This is a bigger class than usual," said Marc Blau, Executive Director of the Hall of Fame. "The voting by our statewide panel was so close that we decided a larger class was justified. There also was a feeling among many voters that every one of these 2014 inductees absolutely deserved to be voted in and the sooner the better."
The newest class raises the total of inductees in the State of Washington Sports Hall of Fame to 189. The Hall of Fame was started by late sportscaster Clay Huntington in Tacoma in 1960 and is located in the Tacoma Dome. The Web site is www.washingtonsportshof.com
