Annual Hall of Fame Inductee Dinner will celebrate the accomplishments of players and teams. Over 500 expected to attend.

Please Join us on October 26th at the Drury Lane Oakbrook.

The 16-Inch Chicago Softball Hall of Fame honors both men and women-players, historic teams, organizers, managers, and umpires-who since the 1920s have exemplified excellent 16-inch softball talent, sportsmanship, and set a precedent for future generations. 

Since 1995, the institution has inducted more than 700 individuals and teams. The prior 16-Inch Hall of Fame events has 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 Paul Rowan President of the Chicago 16-Inch Hall of Fame.
