Our view: A long-overdue honor for Perrone


Credit for the change of heart goes to City Councilor Tom Furey, who advocated for Perrone’s induction for years, and to the School Committee, which last year voted to expand the size of the Hall of Fame Committee, add a number of women and set term limits.

The controversy over Perrone’s decision to keep coaching in 1994 was annoying to Salem officials at the time. But holding a decades-long grudge, even after the rest of the city had moved on, was even more embarrassing.

Here’s hoping the issue is finally at rest.
