NorCal Hall of Fame to add five members

   Five new members of the Northern California Tennis Hall of Fame will be inducted during a luncheon on July 27 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Peninsula Golf and Country Club in San Mateo.
   Enshrined will be Mike Bauer, Dana (Gilbert) Heinemann, Tad Taube, Rich Andrews and Wendell Pierce.
   Bauer, a former Cal All-American, reached No. 29 in the world in 1984. He won three singles and nine doubles titles on the ATP Tour.
   Heinemann, the older sister of Brad Gilbert, climbed to No. 46 in the world in 1983. She captured two singles and one doubles title on the WTA tour.
   Taube, a San Francisco Bay Area philanthropist, had Stanford's tennis facility named after him. The Taube Family Tennis Stadium hosted the Bank of the West Classic on the WTA tour from 1997 through last year. In its place, the first Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic is scheduled for July 30-Aug. 5 at San Jose State's Spartan Tennis Complex.
   Andrews, now retired, coached in Sacramento, and Pierce is a teaching pro in the Bay Area.
