deserved and he thinks it's a
great thing."
Yellen, a Detroit native,
began playing raquetball at
age. 13 and soon preferred it

to team sports such as foot-
ball, which he also played.
By age 16, he was the
Michigan singles and doubles
champion. He soon turned
professional and was ranked
16th nationally while still at
Southfield-Lathrup High
School. By graduation, he had
risen to sixth.
After jockeying between the
No. 2 and 3 spots between
1979 and 1982, Yellen broke
through to the championship
in 1983 and didn't relinquish
it until 1988, when he finish-
ed third. He tours the country
promoting the sport and
representing the Ektelon
company, a raquetball equip-
ment manufacturer.
Following the inductee an-
nouncement, a sports round-
table discussion was held,
featuring Unger and fellow
sportscasters Eli Zaret, Jim
Berk and Russ Small. ❑
