A fixture around the Valparaiso University sports medicine program for more than two decades, James Malayter, M.D., served as the Crusaders’ team physician for all of the University’s sports teams, and on Saturday, February 4, he will be inducted into the Valparaiso University Athletics Hall of Fame.
