The NEW YORK STATE USSSA Hall of Fame is a virtual Hall, which resides on the NEW YORK website.
NEW YORK has played an important part in the establishment of USSSA, from conception to the present day. One of the ways to recognize the people that played a major part in this development is to honor them with induction into a Hall of Fame that is dedicated to New Yorkers. Each Hall of Fame inductee will receive a Hall of Fame Ring and Certificate detailing their induction.
Our tenth annual dinner and induction ceremony was held on March 23, 2013, in Pittsford, NY with 230 people attending. Thirteen individuals were inducted into the Hall Of Fame. Click on Hall of Fame Inductees above to view bios. In addition, we honored a Team of Distinction.
The 2014 induction ceremony will be held on March 22, 2014 in East Syracuse, NY.
