WHITE PLAINS, NY -- County Executive Robert P. Astorino is seeking nominations of candidates for this year’s Westchester Sports Hall of Fame.
“Athletes who have dedicated their lives to good sportsmanship and teamwork enrich their communities and enhance Westchester County by the examples they set,” Astorino said. “This is an opportunity to show them some well-deserved recognition.”
Hall of Fame honors outstanding professional and amateur sportsmen and sportswomen, living or deceased, who have gained prominence in their fields and who have made substantial contributions to sports in Westchester County. Since its establishment in 1968, the organization has inducted over 200 individuals into its prestigious membership ranks.
A prospective candidate must be at least 25 years old and should be a person of integrity and good character who has gained prominence in either professional or amateur sports as a player, coach, manager, official, owner, writer or broadcaster.
Nominees are reviewed by a committee that selects those who best meet or exceed the criteria of the Hall of Fame. Induction will take place this fall, when each member will be presented with a trophy and have his or her name inscribed on a plaque in the Sports Hall of Fame gallery at the Westchester County Center in White Plains.
All nominations must be postmarked by Wednesday, May 25, 2016. A nomination form is available at countycenter.biz. Completed forms must be mailed to Westchester Sports Hall of Fame, c/o Kevin Cook, 450 Saw Mill River Road, Ardsley, NY 10502.
The Sports Hall of Fame is sponsored by Westchester County Parks.
