Harford Sports Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony

June 12 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


As part of its Harford 250 Sestercentennial Celebrations, the Historical Society of Harford County, Inc. (HSHC) evaluated the desire of the community to develop the Harford Sports Hall of Fame. A committee was assembled of sports reporters, former high school athletic directors, local historians, athletes, coaches and more, who evaluated a stellar list of nominees from 23 high schools and those who made an impact in Harford County and beyond. An initial list was developed of 90-plus athletes, coaches and administrators that contained Olympians, World Champions, world record holders, professional and collegiate athletes, coaches and more. In August 2023, 50 incredibly accomplished individuals from this list were honored at the HSHC Harford 250’s Night at the Ballpark at Ripken Stadium.

On Wednesday, June 12, 2024, at the Maryland Golf and Country Clubs, HSHC will formally induct the first class of athletes, coaches and administrators into the Harford Sports Hall of Fame!
