U of M honors Sid Hartman with press box dedication

On Saturday, the University of Minnesota unveiled the TCF Bank Stadium press box named after legendary Twin Cities sports media personality Sid Hartman.

Hartman has covered the university for more than 70 years, with his work on the Gophers starting in 1944 for the Minneapolis Times.

University President Eric Kaler said in a release that "Sid has passionately and fairly covered the Gophers his entire Hall of Fame career. Generations of Minnesotans have relied on him for dedicated coverage of the Maroon and Gold and it is an honor to name the press box at TCF Bank Stadium after him."
