The West Coast HOF Committee is proud to announce the 2012 HOF Class! The committee discussed the candidates worked diligently on the process and good discussions ensued. of the criteria was also discussed amongst the members of the committee. Each member votes on the nominees they would like to see inducted into the HOF and they reject any nominee they feel does not meet the selection criteria. The process is modeled after the MLB HOF selection process.
Without further discussion, we are proud to announce the 2012 PoliceSoftball.com Hall of Fame.
NOTE FROM POLICESOFTBALL.COM: All past Hall of Fame inductees are invited to be on the field at World Series VIII to welcome the 2012 inductees into a very special club. (More information will be posted on that as we get closer.)
PoliceSoftball.com would like to thank Anthony "Big Tone" Costanzo and the committee for the hard work they do and have done for several years now. The committee must find balance when deciding who has made a "significant and positive impact" on our sport and who may not be at that point right now. it is a difficult job and the committee takes the responsibility very serious. As always, if you have any feedback on this issue, contact PoliceSoftball.com or any member on the committee.
We would like to thank all the people who have taken the time to write up quality nominations which allowed the committee to do a quality job. If your nominee did not make it this year, please resubmit an updated nomination next year when the nomination period opens. We will leave the nominations posted on the message board for a few weeks so if you need to copy it, please do so while it is still posted.
To the nominees who were not selected, please keep in mind that it is an extremely high honor to be nominated and there is a history of HOF members who have gotten in on second and third nominations. Good luck in the future!
