Billie Jean King wasn't here for the ceremony because of an illness in her family, but Billie Jean was honored as one of the pioneers in women's tennis after she won a dozen grand slam titles.

The hall now has now up to 133 members including former Cal and Cowboys quarterback Craig Morton, Giants pitcher Gaylord Perry and ex-Raider tight end Dave Casper who was thankful the hall modeled his plaque from a 1977 photo.
