The purpose of the La Crosse Area Baseball Hall of Fame is to recognize the significant impact that baseball has made on the La Crosse, Wisconsin area. We seek to commemorate the individuals most closely associated with baseball, its promotion, success and positive impact on the economy, history and quality of life in the La Crosse area.
PHASE 1: WALK OF FAME
Each inductee will be honored with an engraved plaque in the shape of home plate, which will be permanently embedded in the sidewalk around La Crosse's Copeland Park, a historic and present site of baseball in the La Crosse area.
The first class of honorees were inducted in January 2015. Future classes will be inducted on an annual basis, with the honorees to be announced in January of each year.
A traveling display of baseball memorabilia and artifacts to honor the history of the game in the La Crosse area will be created. This display will be housed temporarily at various locations, including businesses, museums and schools. The display will evolve and change over time as new materials are added to it. Its purpose will be to inform, entertain, and educate.
