Bob-miller_300 Bob Miller must need a big house to store all the awards he wins.

The Kings announced Saturday that Miller, who last week won the Sports TV Play By Play award from the Southern California Sports Broadcasters organization, will be inducted into the California Sports Hall of Fame in Ontario on Feb. 27.

Miller, in his 38th season as the voice of the Kings, won the Hockey Hall of Fame's Foster Hewitt award for excellence in broadcasting in 2000 and was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2006. He will share the  California Sports Hall of Fame honor with former NFL coach Dick Vermeil, football Hall of Famer Mike Haynes, former WBC heavyweight champion Ken Norton and three-time world boxing champion Tony Lopez.

The ceremony will be held at the Ontario Convention Center. Fans are invited to attend and many former inductees have been invited. Guests will also have a chance to participate in silent and live auctions to benefit children's charities.
