 CANTON, Ohio (AP) - The Pro Football Hall of Fame expects a record turnout of members for its inductions celebrating its 50th anniversary.
As many as 130 Hall of Famers are expected to attend from Aug. 2-4 as Larry Allen, Cris Carter, Curley Culp, Jonathan Ogden, Bill Parcells, Dave Robinson and Warren Sapp are enshrined. Already, 90 hall members have confirmed they will be on hand, including Dick Butkus, Earl Campbell, Joe Greene, Jerry Rice, Don Shula, Bruce Smith and Emmitt Smith.
That is far more than usual turnout: ``Typically there are 75-80 returning Hall of Famers attending the various enshrinement festival events,'' Hall of Fame President/Executive Director Steve Perry says. ``We feel confident that we will have a record turnout by our Hall of Famers.''
Special events involving the returning Hall of Famers are being planned, including a ``Red Carpet'' arrival by the Hall of Famers and the 2013 enshrinees.
