Rockford: The Illinois USSSA Held its 17th Annual Hall of Fame Induction Dinner at the Radisson Hotel & Conference Center in Rockford with eight individuals entering into the honorary hall for their achievements in slow pitch softball. More than two hundred people attended the evening's sit down dinner to honor this year's inductee's.
After the completion of dinner the evenings Master of ceremonies Chuck Fisher from Louisville, KY opened the evenings program with Fisher saying, "The ultimate honor that can be bestow upon a player, coach, manager, director, umpire, sponsor or anyone involved in the game of softball, in the state of Illinois is to be nominated, elected and than inducted into the USSSA Hall of Fame of Illinois."
Illinois USSSA Executive Director Brenda Paulson spoke next and said; "One of the things that makes the hall of fame so special is that we have so many former inductee's to the hall of fame that are with us tonight". She went on to read the names of those past inductees (thirty-two) that were present by the year in which they were inducted. Each of the past inductees stood as their name was called and were recognized by those at the induction ceremony.
As each inductee completed their remarks to the evenings crowd Paulson would say a few words about each inductee and present them with a crystal Hall of Fame statue, their Hall of Fame ring and a certificate commemorating their induction. The certificate read, 'United States Slo-Pitch Softball Association Illinois Hall of Fame (players name & category that they are being inducted in), upon nomination and election of the Illinois Hall of Fame election committee of the Illinois USSSA you are here by inducted as a member of the Illinois United States Slow-Pitch Softball Association Hall of Fame the 5th day of November, 2011. This high honor to be recognized forever in the Illinois USSSA Hall of Fame."
