the standpoint that he is a

his strong points as seeing

The 1990 inductees into the
Michigan Jewish Sports Hall
of Fame will be speed-skating
great Ben Bagdade and two
basketball stars from the
1930s, Carl "Cubby" Bayer
and Henry "Honey" Berris.
All three honorees will be
inducted into the Michigan
Jewish Sports Hall at its an-
nual banquet Nov. 5 at Con-
gregation Shaarey Zedek.
Benjamin B. Bagdade, 86,
was one of the founders of
speed skating in Michigan
and an Olympic official for
over 20 years.
Bagdade won the Interna-
tional Intermediate Speed
Skating title in 1919, but
dropped from competition
after he moved to Detroit
from his native Montreal in
the early 1920s. He then
devoted his time to the sport
in an administrative capacity.
He served as manager of
the U.S. Olympic speed
skating team in 1948 and for
20 years was treasurer of U.S.
Olympic speed skating funds.
Bagdade also was an official
in the Winter Olympics of
1952, 1956 and 1960; a
member of the U.S. Speed
Skating Committee
(1948-1968) and president of
the American Skating Union
(1948-1950). He was inducted
into the Speed Skating Hall
of Fame in 1978 and the
Michigan Amateur Sports
Hall of Fame in 1977.
Carl Bayer, who died in
1986, was an all-city basket-
ball player for Northern High

School in the early 1930s,
when Northern won the city
championship three con-
secutive years.
He then went to Wayne
University, becoming a three-
year starter on that basket-
ball team. The last two years,
he co-captained the team
with Henry Berris.
Bayer was the team's high
scorer and playmaker and
was chosen to participate in
the 1936 Olympic trials.
After college, Bayer played
for Cincy Sachs and the
Detroit Eagles, Detroit's first
professional basketball team.
During World War II, Bayer
was in charge of the Alameda
Naval Base athletic program,
becoming player/coach of the
basketball team. During the
1943 season, Alameda was
consistently ranked among
the top 10 teams in the coun-
try, including all the major
colleges.
Bayer also was a starting
short centerfielder on the
Briggs Beautyware fast pitch
softball team that won the
world championship four
times in the late 1930s. He
was also an outstanding ten-
nis player and an excellent
golfer.
Henry Berris, who died in
1980, was an all-city forward
on those Northern High
School city championship
teams with Bayer. He was
also a member of the varsity
baseball team.
At Wayne, he was the first
freshman ever named basket-
