Welcome to the Robert “Tick” Cloherty
Western Chapter of the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame

 

A couple months ago a cache of older inductee’s banquet programs were found. We have scanned and posted these Inductees from past years all the way back to the founding of the Western Chapter. Look under the INDUCTEES – PAST YEARS tab on the menu and you will find the past inductees organized by decades.  Enjoy!!

President’s Message

On behalf of the Executive Board of the Robert “Tick” Cloherty – Western Chapter of the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame, I am pleased and proud to welcome you to our web-site.

It is our hope that this user-friendly network will enable us to more effectively communicate with our membership and encourage others to join our ranks in honoring those stellar athletes, coaches, and other luminaries who have brought honor to themselves and the Western Pennsylvania region through their legendary achievements as competitors, instructors, administrators, mentors and chroniclers.
When visiting our web-site, please take the time to review the celebrated accomplishments of our past inductees and, if you are not currently listed on our membership rolls, learn how becoming a member entitles you to nominate worthy candidates for enshrinement and grants voting privileges for both the Robert “Tick” Cloherty – Western Chapter and the Pennsylvania State Hall of Fame ballots.

Sincerely,


Dan Carr, President
Robert “Tick” Cloherty – Western Chapter of the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame
