NAGAAA Hall of Fame

The NAGAAA Hall of Fame was established in 1997 by a group of "old timers" who had been associated with NAGAAA and Gay Softball World Series from the beginning.  The Hall of Fame was created to provide an historic perspective and perpetuate the history of gay softball and the Gay Softball World Series. 

Any 10-year member of a NAGAAA league or association, whether living or deceased, can be nominated for the Hall.  The nominees should have made significant contributions to their league and/or NAGAAA.
