Three inductees will be honoured by having a place in the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame later this month.
The Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame and Museum will induct a hockey legend with a fabulous nickname, a world record holder in skeet shooting, and a national championship team from soccer at Sport Manitoba’s Night of Champions.
Harold Joseph “Bullet Joe” Simpson, Barney Hartman, and the 1970 Manitoba Selects will be inducted Tuesday, April 30 at the Winnipeg Convention Centre.
Tickets to the Night of Champions event are $40 each and are available for purchase online.
Organizers are also asking the public in any assistance tracking down relatives for Selkirk-born “Bullet Joe” Simpson to accept the honour on his behalf.
