Happy Holidays and warm wishes for 2016!

2015 has brought in many new changes for us at the Hall of Fame, and we couldn't have done it without you! 



Two New HOF Board Members
 
Ron Kubicki, president of the HOF has announced the addition of two new board members, Jeff Berger and John Doss.

Ron states, "both John and Jeff are contemporary veteran ball players with superb credentials and respected on and off the field. Their business background and love of the sport make them perfect additions to our board."
 
Jeff, "I've been playing 16" softball for 35 years. I'm a manager for an accounting firm. I really believe what the HOF members have done up to this point is amazing and truly think I can help make it even better."
 
As Director of Public Works at the Village of Forest Park, I can combine my passions for the great 16 inch game and for my hometown that is so privileged to hold the best softball tournament and is the home of the outstanding HOF museum. I hope to make a contribution to the sport and the history of the game, John stated.
