One of the most prestigious events at the ABCA Convention is the ABCA Hall of Fame Banquet, which is held on the Friday evening of the Convention and features the induction ceremony for the ABCA Hall of Fame as well as the presentation of the ABCA/Wilson Lefty Gomez Award.
Induction to the ABCA Hall of Fame is the highest honor bestowed by the organization. The ABCA was founded in 1945 and the Hall of Fame began in 1966, with more than 300 inductees so far. The ABCA/Wilson Lefty Gomez Award is named after the great Lefty Gomez and is presented annually to an individual who has contributed significantly to the game of baseball locally, national and internationally.
The ABCA Hall of Fame Class of 2024 will be announced on July 5th and the recipient of the 2024 ABCA/Wilson Lefty Gomez Award will be announced on July 12th.
