Welcome to the Maryland State Athletic Hall of Fame!

In 1956, the Maryland Hall of Fame inducted its first class of “all-stars,” which included the baseball greats Babe Ruth, Jimmie Foxx, and Frank “Home Run” Baker. Ever since, this list of native-born Maryland sons and daughters – some of the region’s greatest athletes – has grown.

The Maryland State Athletic Hall of Fame recognizes those athletes and individuals from the State that have made significant and lasting contributions to sports and have achieved a high standard of athletic success and helps to promote the ideals and traditions of sports as a positive influence on the youth of Maryland.
