The Fond du Lac Softball "Hall of Fame" committee announced that it is now accepting nominations for consideration into the "Hall of Fame Class of 2013."
The process is very easy. Anyone in the community who is interested in nominating someone for consideration just simply needs to contact the Recreation Department. The department will then send an information form to the candidate to be filled out.
The Hall of Fame currently has 124 members that have been elected in the categories of:
Male Player; Female Player; Umpire; Manager; Sponsor; Contributor; and Meritorious Service
Individuals may be nominated in more that one category, depending upon their softball career in Fond du Lac; however, they may only be elected into the Hall in one category. The committee has established minimum requirements for consideration. Those requirements are: Men, age 45m with at least 10 years of participation; and Women, age 40, with at least 10 years of participation in softball in the Fond du Lac community.
Nominations will be considered from 1952, which is 10 years prior to the establishment of Fond du Lac Softball Inc. Nominations will be accepted through Friday, Feb. 15, with the voting process to occur in March. Once a committee member has nominated an individual, they will remain on the ballot for a three-year period. The Class Of 2013 can have a maximum of six inductees.
Information and nomination forms are available at the Recreation Department, 85 Morningside Drive; or contact the Recreation Department at 929-2885; or Renee Wagner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Fond du Lac Softball Hall of Fame Committee is made up of 15 members which meet monthly at the Recreation Department.
The Class Of 2013 will be announced at the Hall of Fame's 14th Annual Golf Outing to be held on Saturday, June 22, at Whispering Springs. The Class Of 2012 and 2013 will be inducted at the Semi-annual Hall of Fame Banquet to be held at the Knights of Columbus Hall on Friday, Aug. 9.
The Fond du Lac Softball Hall of Fame is located at Forest Mall in the corridor near Kohl's Department Store.
