Who we are – What we do – Why us ?
To: Our Current Members, Prospective Members & Sponsors
Our primary purpose is to recognize the lifetime achievements of outstanding individuals involved in athletic programs as players, coaches, athletic directors, officials, broadcasters, sportswriters, and other sports personalities.
As one of 30 statewide Chapters of the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame, we focus on honoring individuals that are all connected through sports to our Western Pennsylvania region.
During the past 50 years over 650 individuals have been honored for their significant athletic achievements and lifetime contributions through sports.
Notable inductees include: Roberto Clemente, Roger Kingdom, Bill Fralic, Arnold Palmer, Dwight White, Swin Cash George Novak, Tom Bradley, Sean Casey, Bob Pompeani and many others.
These lifetime achievements generally include an extended level of direct participation and demonstrated track record of successful accomplishments in a specific sport or a group of sports activities.
Since 2017 we have made charitable donations in excess of $30,000 to worthy foundations that support youth sports programs here in Western PA.
For the past 50 years, we have operated as a volunteer group of dedicated individuals to identify outstanding candidates for induction into this prestigious Sports Hall of Fame for Western PA. We honor 10-12 individuals at our annual Induction Ceremony and Awards Dinner at the Sheraton Station Square Hotel.
We are actively soliciting new members and financial sponsors to expand our programs in 2022 and 2023. Please contact me or one of our Board Members for additional information.
