The Palm Beach County Sports Hall of Fame Awards *Postponed*
Honoring Palm Beach County Sports Legends
Established in 1977
In 1977, after years of covering local sports, veteran sportswriter Chuck Otterson decided the time was right to formally recognize the accomplishments of area athletes. The Palm Beach County Sports Commission has been involved with this event since 2004, developing it into the successful program it is today.
Nominations are made by the general public and members of the Hall of Fame Committee. Candidates must have been born, attended school, or achieved their major sports accomplishment in Palm Beach County in order to be considered for the Hall of Fame. Nominations are reviewed and committee members and past inductees select the individuals welcomed annually into the Hall of Fame.
Annual Recognition Banquet
Each year in early spring the inductees are honored at a gala banquet. Their lifetime of outstanding contributions in sports is recognized as they are inducted into the elite membership of the Palm Beach County Sports Hall of Fame. Also honored during this banquet is are Palm Beach County’s Amateur Athlete of the Year, Coach of the Year, Outstanding Sports Contributor, High School Coach of the Year, High School Athlete of the Year (Male and Female), Special Olympics Athlete of the Year, and the Dick Moroso Memorial Motorsports Award.
In 2004, Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium, home of the St. Louis Cardinals and the Miami Marlins Spring Training, became the permanent site of the Palm Beach County Sports Hall of Fame. Banners commemorating inductees for each year from 1977 hang around the stadium concourse and are viewed each year by hundreds of thousands of people attending events at the stadium.
