SOFTBALL CANADA HALL OF FAME
The Softball Canada Hall of Fame exists to honour those individuals and teams who have served and represented fast pitch, orthodox and slo-pitch softball. Prolonged and meritorious performances while a member of Softball Canada at the national and international level will be recognized.
Every year, Softball Canada inducts up to five (5) inductees from the region hosting the Annual General Meeting at the Hall of Fame and Awards Banquet. Nominations are considered by a Selection Committee, who rank the most deserving candidates based on their accomplishments and contributions to the sport of softball. Although there is no physical Hall of Fame, all inductees are listed on a plaque and on the website, and are recognized at all Softball Canada functions in which they participate or attend.
