The Aspire Gala will be held at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel. “Some of the honorees will include Baseball Hall of Famer Eddie Murray; Japan’s “Iron Man” Sachio Kinugasa; and longtime winning head basketball coach Bob Hurley, Sr. Eddie Murray will be presented with the Aspire Award, along with Sachio Kinugasa. Bob Hurley, Sr. will be honored with the Cal, Sr. Award.
