The Baseball Australia Hall of Fame or Australian Baseball Federation Hall of Fame is a group of baseball players, managers and coaches who have been recognised by the Australian Baseball Federation (ABF) as having influenced baseball in Australia over a prolonged period of time "at the highest level available at the time."[1]

The concept of an Australian baseball hall of fame was first formally raised in 2002 when the ABF board created a Heritage Committee, who were tasked with creating a hall of fame including the selection criteria and induction process. The first group of inductees was announced in December 2004,[2] and were formally inducted at a presentation ceremony on 27 January 2005.[3] Since 2006, new groups have since been inducted as part of the Baseball Australia Diamond Awards each year.[4][5][6][7][8]

There are currently 61 people that have been inducted into the hall of fame.
