Missouri Sports Hall of Fame mulling Kroenke's removal

Posted: Updated:

SPRINGFIELD, Mo (KMOV.com) -- While Stan Kroenke is in Houston pleading his case to get out of St. Louis, residents in Missouri are campaigning to erase him from their memories entirely.

Jerald Andrews, President and CEO of the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame in Springfield, says the hall has received letters and emails from angry sports fans calling for Stan Kroenke’s removal.

To be considered, possible inductees must have either been born in Missouri, made their career in Missouri and/or contributed to amateur or professional sports in Missouri at the time of induction. 

Kroenke was inducted in 2009 under the business category, and Andrews says booting him has crossed his mind.

They have never removed any of their members (a total numbering in the hundreds), even when one went to prison. The board of the hall meets again in November, and Andrews said he has not ruled out Kroenke’s removal as a possible agenda topic.
