Champ Bailey will soon be inducted into the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame.

The long-time Denver Broncos cornerback and NFL great was one of six notable sports figures with ties to Colorado voted in Tuesday.

Former Colorado Rockies outfielder Dante Bichette, who made four All-Star games, and Colorado football players Jeremy Bloom (also an Olympic skier) and John B. Wooten (an All-American lineman who played 10 NFL seasons) were among the notable names voted in as well.

They will officially be inducted at an April 27 banquet at the Denver Marriott City Center.

Bailey, a seven-time All-Pro, spent 10 of his 15 NFL seasons with the Broncos. He was selected to 12 Pro Bowls and recorded 52 interceptions in 215 regular-season games.

Tickets to the banquet are $200. If that’s a little out of your price range, you can always pull up Bailey highlights on YouTube to reminisce. They’re free.
