The Austin Blacks Board of Directors and the Hall of Fame Committee are both pleased and proud to announce the Inaugural Inductees into the Austin Blacks Hall of Fame. These men will be honored at the 50th Anniversary Gala with a ceremony during the evening, and will be recognized in perpetuity on a wall plaque that will be mounted at Burr Field Clubhouse.
The hardest part of starting a Hall of Fame, is getting the first class selected. Every nominee was a worthy candidate, and I’ve no doubt that all of the finalists we announced previously will be added to the Hall in the coming years. Please congratulate them all, and I’m sure they’d let you buy them a drink to discuss it.
