Brad Livingston, a longtime football and boys' volleyball coach at Central York High School, and Keith Wentz, a standout Central Baseball League player, are the newest additions to the elite group.
Livingston and Wentz will be inducted at the Hall of Fame Center (224 N. George St, York) and at Sovereign Bank Stadium on May 6 before the York Revolution game against Bridgeport.

Wentz was inducted into the York College Athletic Hall of Fame in 1998 and the Central Baseball League Hall of Fame in 2010.
He finished his Central League career with 225 homers, 893 RBIs and a .428 batting average over 23 seasons. He is also one of only four Central League players with at least 1,000 hits. He is the Central League's all-time leader in homers, RBIs and average.
Wentz finished his York College career with a .408 average, a .479 on-base percentage and a .710 slugging percentage. He ranks in the top three in York College history in all of those categories, and his slugging percentage is a school record.
