Muck: SABR member Jim Rasco inducted into Arkansas sports hall

From Jeremy Muck at the Arkansas Times on March 1, 2017, on SABR member Jim Rasco:

Jim Rasco has introduced the inductees at the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame banquet since 1990.

This year, he will receive his own introduction when he is inducted into the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame on Friday.

When asked how his introduction will be handled, Rasco wasn’t sure, but he has an idea for future banquets.

“Probably the simplest thing would be to ignore that I’m in, and the emcee can just say it if he wants to and I’ll keep doing it,” said Rasco, who also runs Rasco Winter Abston Moore & Associates, a CPA firm in Little Rock.

Rasco, 75, was an accomplished athlete at DeWitt High School and Hendrix College in Conway before becoming known as a sports historian and speaker.
