To no one's surprise, the great Pat Hughes was inducted into the Chicagoland Sports Hall of Fame on Thursday night.
After being named the voice of the Cubs in November 1995, Hughes has been behind the mic for some of the greatest events in Chicago Cubs' history. He was there for the summer of 1998, the chaos in 2003, and yes, even the World Series in 2016.
Before joining the Cubs, Hughes spent time as the TV play-by-play announcer for both the Minnesota Twins and Milwaukee Brewers. However, Hughes found his home in Chicago, becoming the iconic voice that the present day Cubs fans have come to know and love.
Now, after 25 years on the radio for Chicago, Hughes joins elite company as a member of the Chicagoland Sports Hall of Fame. To say Hughes is deserving of the honor is an understatement. Hughes is truly among the best to ever call games on the radio and now has a permanent place in Chicago Sports history.
