2012 Banquet

“The Silver Anniversary Class of 2012” celebrated its induction before a “sold out” audience on Wednesday October 3, 2012. 284 people joined us. Some came two hours before our event started. Our “sold out” Silver Anniversary Banquet was memorable for our Inductees, Honorees and their families thanks in part to the amazing show our Board of Directors and their spouses provided. Our Hall of Famers enjoyed a night of fellowship and memories. Our honorees got recognized for current accomplishments. Our Inductees got honored for lifetime accomplishments. It was a blend of the old and the new, the recent and the past and in the end that’s what makes the El Paso Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Banquet special and unique. Thanks to all of our guests and El Paso Baseball Hall of Fame supporters. It was a night of laughter, tears and cheers, family and ceremony dedicated to reflecting the relevance of our Hall of Fame as a gathering spot for the baseball heroes of El Paso. This may not have been a record breaker but it was one for the record books.
