Welcome to the Appalachian League Hall of Fame
The purpose of the Appalachian League Hall of Fame is to recognize individuals for their accomplishments and/or contributions to the League on the field of play or in an executive or an administrative capacity. This shall include but not necessarily be limited to: players, managers, coaches, umpires, and team and league executives. Entry into the Appalachian League Hall of Fame shall be made available to anyone previously or currently associated with the league regardless of the duration of the association, beginning with the 1957 season.
Players must be retired from active roster status from all classifications of professional baseball for a minimum of two full seasons before becoming eligible. All non-playing candidates are eligible at any time.
The primary, but not exclusive, consideration for nominating, selecting, or voting individuals to the Appalachian League Hall of Fame shall be their accomplishments and/or contributions to the League. The totality of an individual's career in whatever capacity may be taken into consideration.
Creation of the Appalachian League Hall of Fame will be a phased process. The first Appalachian League Hall of Fame class (June 2019) will encompass those individuals that have already been inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. Special Fall 2019 inductions will be conducted by unique procedures prior to beginning Annual (2020) inductions which will follow uniform procedures.
