Yesterday, Michael “Pinball” Clemons was inducted into Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame. Pinball is a fitting recipient, both for his tremendous athletic achievements but his tireless work in the community.
‘Pinball’ began his incredible career in the Canadian Football League in 1989 after having played for a brief time in the National Football League. At only 5 feet 5 inches and 166 pounds, he was never the biggest player on the field, unless you were sizing up his spirit. Michael’s nickname ‘Pinball’ was affectionately given to him for his running style, limitless energy, and extraordinary balance, which allowed him to bounce off opponents and continue down the field when everyone was sure he would be tackled. Michael has been praised countless times by teammates and coaches for his outstanding athletic ability, team attitude, integrity, and drive to win. Renowned as one of the CFL’s most hard working and electrifying players, Michael is one of the most respected athletes in Canadian sports.
