Athletic Hall of Fame
Each year the Alumni Association pays tribute to the University of Baltimore's rich and storied athletic history of competition in college division sports from 1928 until 1983. During that time, more than one hundred All-Americans, hundreds of All-Star participants, and dozens of division-winning teams represented the University in competition around the country. In recognizing those accomplishments, achievements and sacrifices, the University has established a permanent Athletic Hall of Fame. Its showcase and plaques were moved from the Game Room in the Student Center to the Recreation Center in the spring of 2011.
Alumni Relations maintains the Athletic Hall of Fame and manages the induction ceremony. For more information on the event or a complete list of inductees you can access their webpage here.
Nominations for admission to the Hall of Fame will be reviewed and considered by sport-specific subcommittees. Their recommendations will then be forwarded to the Hall of Fame Executive Committee, requiring a majority vote of the committee for admission. The Executive Committee is comprised of a representative from each of the six major sports (baseball, basketball, golf, lacrosse, soccer, and wrestling) and a representative of the coaches, contributors, managers, and trainers. The University of Baltimore Alumni Association holds two non-voting seats on the Executive Committee.
A member of the Executive Committee nominated to the Hall of Fame may not vote on the nomination, nor participate in the nomination discussion.
Eligible candidates must meet at least one of the following criteria for consideration by the Executive Committee:
1) A truly great player who participated in one or more sports at the University of Baltimore for at least two years.
2) A truly great coach or manager who served the University for at least three years.
3) A former University athlete or coach who has been a great contributor to society.
4) A person whose contributions and/or service to the University made a positive and significant impact on the athletic program.
Individual teams may also be considered for admission to the Hall of Fame
