In The Region:

Former Browns owner Art Modell is among the 15 finalists who could be chosen for induction to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton.  A group of 46 sports writers will decide Saturday, one day before the Super Bowl, which five men will be inducted. Also on the list is the former owner of the San Francisco 49ers, Eddie DeBartolo of Youngstown. Our sports commentator Terry Pluto finds the whole football hall of fame process confusing. He spoke with WKSU’s Mark Urycki

Terry Pluto does vote for inductees to the Baseball Hall of Fame, along with about 600 other sportswriters and officials. But only 46 writers decide who gets in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton.
