16-Inch Chicago Softball Inducts Its Stars into Hall of Fame

The 23rd Annual Hall of Fame Inductee Dinner will be held on Saturday April 27, 2019 at the Drury Lane Oak brook.

The 16-Inch Chicago Softball Hall of Fame honors both men and women-players, historic teams, organizers, managers and umpires-who since the 1920’s have exemplified excellent 16-inch softball talent, sportsmanship, and set a precedent for future generations. More than 2,500 people voted for their favorite and best stars in Chicago 16-inch softball for the Hall of Fame induction competition. Since 1995, the institution has inducted more than 600 individuals and teams. The Hall of Fame will induct 16 individuals and six historic teams at this year’s event. The prior 16-Inch Hall of Fame events have attracted approximately 10,000 guests to the dinner.

“This is a great time for those of us who love the game to celebrate with friends and honor those who have been inducted, while keeping the game alive for those who will be playing after us,” says Ron Kubicki, President of the Chicago 16-Inch Hall of Fame.
