Celebrating the Contributions of Hall of Fame Inductees

Celebrating the Contributions of Hall of Fame Female Inductees

The Windsor Fastpitch Softball Hall of Fame is an organization unlike traditional Hall of Fame organizations. 

Celebrating the Contributions of Hall of Fame Male Inductees

The Windsor Fastpitch Softball Hall of Fame is an organization unlike traditional Hall of Fame organizations. 

Celebrating the Contributions of Hall of Fame Teams & Builders

The Windsor Fastpitch Softball Hall of Fame is an organization unlike traditional Hall of Fame organizations. 

Many sporting Hall of Fame induction processes include the selection of only the elite, with strict eligibility criteria, leaving many valuable and well-respected players of the game without the recognition they deserve.

Recognizing that many of our inductees have achieved outstanding Canadian, Provincial, and World Class accomplishments, in no way do we wish to diminish their individual and team performances. Instead, it is our intention to celebrate these accomplishments, and move one step further, by creating an avenue for all levels of contributors to be acknowledged, appreciated and recognized for their efforts and contributions.

As we see it, there have been far too many fastpitch softball men and women who were exceptional contributors in their own right, in one way or another, and yet have not been recognized for their success and contributions. We want to change that. We want to shift the paradigm of thinking and open the doors to a more inclusive set of selection parameters. It is our mandate to look at all leagues and divisions and be inclusive of the exceptional contributions of players, coaches, managers, umpires, scorers and other members within the Windsor Fastpitch Softball community.

Thank you for your interest and support as we begin a new chapter in the Windsor Fastpitch Softball community by welcoming a diverse and talented roster of inductees to The Windsor Fastpitch Softball Hall of Fame.

Proudly, The Windsor Fastpitch Softball Hall of Fame recognizes and values the contributions of its inductees based on a wide range of merits.

Examples of such merits include:

Celebrating The Contributions Of Hall Of Fame Inductees

The Windsor Fastpitch Softball Hall of Fame is an organization unlike traditional Hall of Fame organizations. We not only honour the players elite, but, the Windsor Fastpitch Softball Hall of Fame also embraces a mandate that celebrates the contributions of participants regardless of division, league, or role in the game.
