THE TRANI MAJESTIC FAMILY – Without support from the Trani Family, it is probable that there would have never been a San Pedro Sportswalk. Their restaurant, Trani’s Majestic Cafe, became a Southern California sports institution and attracted both sports celebrities and fans. It was founded in 1925 by family patriarch Filippo Trani and was operated by three generations of Tranis. The original restaurant closed in 1989. The Trani brothers Lou, Jim, Jack, John and Phil promoted and vitalized sports in the community, provided scholarships for youth in the South Bay and their current generation continues to be active in the organization.

THE SAN PEDRO BOYS & GIRLS CLUB is the first organization to be honored with induction into the Sportswalk. The Sportswalk and the Boys & Girls Club have much in common. Numerous local athletes that have been inducted into the walk are also alumni of the club. In addition, Nick Trani, a local legend that served as executive director of the club for thirty years, was the first recipient of Sportswalk’s Trani Award, which bears his family’s name, for his contribution to local youth
