The Salinas Valley Sports Hall of Fame committee has voted to postpone the 2020 Salinas Valley Sports Hall of Fame Banquet until August 2021 due to the corona-virus pandemic. The committee wants to ensure that each inductee receives the appropriate recognition they deserve in a safe environment.
Given the course of this world pandemic and what health experts are pointing to now, social distancing, face masks, disinfecting protocols and temperature monitoring will still be with us in August in order to keep us, our families and friends healthy.
The Salinas Valley Sports Hall of Fame recognizes and honors those athletes, coaches and community members who have contributed to the rich sports history of the Salinas Valley.
Our Hall of Fame inductees include local professional athletes, collegiate and high school stars, coaches and others who have achieved and/or facilitated greatness in a variety of athletic pursuits.
Each inductee will have a bronze plaque created in their likeness to highlight their accomplishments. The plaques will be placed on a Hall of Fame Memorial Wall in the Rabobank Stadium, located at the Salinas Sports Complex. The Salinas Valley Sports Hall of Fame will hold an induction ceremony and dinner each year to honor a new class of recipients.
