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 sixteenth annual dinner and induction ceremony was held on March 23, 2019, in Pittsford, NY with 225 people attending. Fourteen 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 2020 induction ceremony will be held on March 21, 2020 at the Traditions at The Links, East Syracuse, NY.
