The 10-time champion Baltimore Blast will induct three new members into their Hall of Fame during the half-time Saturday's game.

Marty McGinty, Lee Tschantret and David Bascome will all be inducted. Baltimore Blast Vice President of Soccer Operations, Gianni Tumminello, said “David and Lee’s contributions to the Blast and the game of indoor soccer are well known and it’s great to see them take their spot in the Blast Hall of Fame. I have a special relationship with Marty McGinty as he taught both of my sons at Archbishop Curley and was their trainer for their respective sports teams. Marty is well loved by Curley and the Blast organization and it’s exciting to see him inducted ”.

Baltimore Blast Owner, Ed Hale said “This group is one of the best of our great tradition of hall of famers. Each one of them brought something special to our team on and off the field.”

Blast players will be wearing retro 1983-84 jerseys, which will be auctioned off at the end of the night. Before the game the Blast will host a special Blast Legends Reunion game from 4-5pm.
