One local player and a local organization will be included in the 2013 induction class of the Illinois ASA Hall of Fame this spring. Bettendorf's Craig Behne and the Milan Aces organization will be among nine individuals and five teams to be inducted.

Behne has been a slowpitch player for over 30 years, primarily for Quad City Laminating. He was named an all-state player in 1994, 1995, 2000, 2001, 2003 (also MVP), and 2005. He played for numerous state championship and runner-up teams.

The Aces have been a Girls' Junior Olympic Fastpitch organization for over 20 years, winning six state championships.

Inductions will take place at the Decatur Hotel and Convention Center on Saturday, April 13, at the annual Illinois ASA Commissioners Council Meeting and Banquet. The Illinois ASA State Hall of Fame and Museum is in Casey, Ill.
