Missouri Sports Hall of Fame

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Missouri Sports Hall of Fame is located in Springfield, Missouri, USA. Founded by Springfield businessman John Q. Hammons[1] in 1994, the Hall of Fame showcases over 4,000 items of sports memorabilia[2] and exhibits related to Missouri amateur and professional athletics. The two-story, 32,000 square foot building also features a number of interactive presentations that allow visitors to experience auto racing in the NASCAR simulator, step into the batters box against a Major League Baseball pitcher, throw football passes, and much more.[3] Adjacent to the Hall is the Legends Walk of Fame, a plaza-like outdoor setting featuring busts and statuary of notable Show-Me state sports figures honored with the yearly Legends Award.[2]

Criteria for inclusion[edit]

In order to considered for the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame an individual must have been a) born in Missouri, b) made their sports career in Missouri, and/or c) contributing to amateur or professional sports in Missouri at the time of induction. Nominees are presented to a selection board who then choose which will be inducted into the Hall. As the number of inductees has steadily grown each year, a series of regional events are held around the state versus having all new inductees travel to Springfield. Individuals are the most common inductee although in some instances entire teams that have performed in an exemplary manner or businesses that have been strong supporters of athletics in Missouri have also been enshrined in the Hall.
