PASADENA, CALIFORNIA, April 12, 2017



The Pasadena Sports Hall of Fame, Inc. is extremely honored to have the Pasadena Tournament of Roses as a sponsor of the Pasadena Sports Hall of Fame 2016-17 Induction Ceremony entitled "A Champions Toast" scheduled for Saturday, April 15, 2017, at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena, California.

The Tournament of Roses has given the residents of Pasadena, and the world, memories that live as modern day treasures. Be it from camping out on Colorado Blvd. with friends and families to watch the Rose Parade, or having the distinct honor of being crowned a Queen or Princess by this prestigious organization, the Tournament of Roses is very much a valued member of the fabric that makes up this great city we call "Pasadena." Besides for putting on the best show on earth, the Tournament of Roses is a strong advocate and supporter of youth sports and recreation in Pasadena.

April 15th, the Pasadena Tournament of Rose will gift us (the 2016-17 Class of Inductees, in particular) with an additional treasure..another memory to share with friends and family - near and far - with it's support of this year's induction ceremony.

Go, Pasadena!

Honoring Legends to Benefit Pasadena's Youth

Established in 2001, the Pasadena Sports Hall of Fame, Inc. (AKA "PASHOF") is dedicated to preserving and honoring Pasadena's sports heritage. If you went around Pasadena looking through sock drawers and wall safes you could easily find Super Bowl rings, World Series Championship rings, NBA Championship rings, NCAA Titles and Championships, Olympic gold medals and World Cup trophies.


Every person in Pasadena knows somebody or knows somebody who knows somebody from here who has merited significant athletic achievement. People who have, even inadvertently, in large ways and small, contributed to the history of American sports. There are literally thousands who need to be considered i.e. players, coaches, jockeys, horses and sponsors. PASHOF also pays tribute to the countless residents, business owners, community leaders and educators who know it truly does take a village to raise a child... or a Super Bowl Champion or an Olympian, or two. Sports at every level of competition are a great part of Pasadena's history. A proud athletic legacy is not the only thing we have to recommend ourselves as a proud city, but is one of the finer things. PASHOF is not just about being a museum (although that's not an unreasonable or unforeseeable goal), rather, PASHOF honors it's legends via its Legend Award for the benefit of the youth of Pasadena. The Award, named in honor of individuals from Pasadena who have made significant strides in sports, and to supporters and organizers of youth oriented sports  programs in the City of Pasadena, provides 4 grants totaling $1,000.00 in honor of the Award recipients(s).


Since its inception, PASHOF has awarded over $5,000.00 in the form of scholarships and financial/equipment grants to high schools in the Pasadena Unified School District and organizations located in the City of Pasadena.


PASHOF has a volunteer research team that maintains statistics and lists of individuals eligible for induction. The list is updated in the Spring and the votes are tallied in April - May. The winners are notified and announced to the press. We do not pretend to know everyone who will ultimately be made eligible for honors. PASHOF needs your help and support to identify these people. They need to be considered, and we want to know their stories. Any Pasadena, California resident can nominate a Hall of Fame hopeful. To be considered, nominees must have gained significant recognition, locally or nationally, in athletic competition, or be an individual, business or organization who have demonstrated a significant history of support to youth oriented activities and sports in the City of Pasadena.
