The History of the MASA Hall of Fame

The USA Softball of Michigan established the Hall of Fame in 1982. The purpose was to honor those men and women who have played a major role in the growth and development of the game softball throughout the State of Michigan.
Six categories were developed for membership including; players, commissioners, managers, meritorious service, sponsors and umpires.
In establishing the USA Softball of Michigan Hall of Fame in 1982, USA Softball of Michigan inducted 28 charter members. Currently, USA Softball of Michigan has honored 338 members into the USA Softball Hall of Fame with Hall of Fame plagues honoring each member on display in Midland.
At the time the Hall of Fame was established, USA Softball of Michigan did not have a site to ' house ' the project. In 1995, USA Softball of Michigan established a site in Midland, Michigan and at the same time established a new direction when developing the USA Softball of Michigan Hall of Fame and Museum. The site is located in the USA Softball of Michigan State Office at 3316 Isabella Street, Midland, Michigan 48640. The office hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. We do suggest calling to verify that we are open, 989-835-5821.
The Museum aspect was added in 1995 with the intent of honoring and preserving the game and it's rich history. If you have any memorabilia such as softball equipment, softballs, gloves, mitts, bats, catcher's equipment, masks, shin guards, umpire equipment, shin guards, indicators, programs or newspaper articles that are sitting some where collecting dust, USA Softball of Michigan would appreciate your donation to the cause.
If you are planning on visiting the USA Softball of Michigan Hall of Fame, we suggest that you contact the office in advance at 989 - 835 - 5821 for current office hours. There are times when we are forced to close the office because of travel or illness.
