Hall of Game

It’s Game Recognizing Game!

Established by the NLBM in 2014, the Hall of Game annually honors former Major League Baseball greats who competed with the same passion, determination, skill and flair exhibited by the heroes of the Negro Leagues. In addition to the induction ceremony, Hall of Game honorees also will receive permanent recognition as part of the future Buck O’Neil Education and Research Center being developed by the NLBM at the site of the Paseo YMCA, the birthplace of the Negro Leagues.
