The Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame (PSHF) is a nonprofit organization established in 1962.[1] It is the only community-based hall of fame in the United States.[2] At its annual convention and induction ceremonial, the PSHF inducts athletes, coaches, administrators, and those involved in sports medicine and the sports media,[2] whose athletic achievements "have brought lasting fame and recognition to the State of Pennsylvania".[1] At the induction ceremony, ten living and two deceased inductees are honored, with the presentation of a Gold Inductee medallion with pendant.[2] The convention and ceremonial are rotated among the chapters of the Central, Eastern, Northern, and Western regions.[2]

The first induction ceremony was in 1963.[3]

The first Ceremonial Dinner was held in 1963, in Philadelphia; the second was in 1964, at the Pittsburgh William Penn Hotel.[4]

The Western Region will host the 50th Anniversary Dinner on November 11, 2012, at the Sheraton Four Points in Warrendale.[4]

The PSHF has twenty-eight chartered chapters, which serve over 300 communities in the state.[2] The chapters are divided into four regions: Central, Eastern, Northern, and Western.[5]
