Hall of Fame
Do you know someone who should be in the CLGSA Hall of Fame?
Do you want to have someone considered? Now is your chance! Don’t wait for someone else to nominate the individual. Do it yourself!
Who is eligible?
Nominees to be considered for the Hall of Fame must have been a member of the Columbus Lesbian and Gay Softball Association for at least 10 years as a player, coach, manager, scorekeeper, and/or umpire (hereby known as “CLGSA members”.) If a potential nominee does not meet the 10-year requirement, but the nominator believes that person’s contributions have been of great significance to CLGSA, special exemption can be requested.
Who are honorary members?
Honorary members are those individuals who have assisted greatly in the development of the league but have not participated on the field of play in any way. For this recognition, only the Hall of Fame Committee members may nominate, though suggestions are encouraged.
What are the criteria for nominees?
Nominees should have made a significant, positive contribution to CLGSA’s mission. CLGSA’s mission is to strengthen the Columbus community by providing social connections, camaraderie, and athletic competition for players at all skill levels.
Who may nominate?
Any current or former CLGSA member may nominate a candidate for the CLGSA Hall of Fame.
What do I do once the form is completed?
Once completed, nomination forms and supporting materials are to be mailed to the Hall of Fame Review Committee at the address stated on the application.
Do I need to do anything else aside from the application form?
Materials, which support the nominee’s application, may be included with the nomination form but are not required. All submitted materials become property of the CLGSA.
Who votes on the nominations?
All living members of the CLGSA Hall of Fame are eligible to vote.
How many votes are needed for a nominee to be allowed in the Hall of Fame?
Nominees who receive three-quarters of the votes of eligible voters who return ballots by the indicated deadline will be inducted into the CLGSA Hall of Fame.
What happens after the votes are tabulated?
The Hall of Fame Chairperson will notify those nominees who gain the required number of votes to be accepted into the Hall of Fame.
When are those who are approved inducted?
Each new Hall of Fame Class shall be announced at the CLGSA end-of-season banquet. CLGSA shall also consider a separate induction ceremony to recognize the new inductees.
