Announcements and Important Events
The Arlington Sports Hall of Fame honors those from the community who have excelled in his or her field of sport as an athlete, coach, contest official, or other contributor, and who through such achievements have gained state or national recognition.
The Better Sports Club of Arlington, at its second annual awards banquet held in November of 1958, established the Arlington Sports Hall of Fame. Arlington businessman and 12-year Major League Baseball (MLB) player with the Cincinnati Reds, St. Louis Browns, Philadelphia Athletics and N.Y. Yankees, George McQuinn (Washington-Lee) became the Hall of Fame's first inductee.
Although one of the Hall of Fame's primary purposes is to perpetuate the memory and accomplishments of its inductees, another of its missions is to serve the youth of the community by way of athletic programs and related activities. These programs and activities, sponsored by the Hall of Fame through its fund raising efforts, are coordinated by its volunteer members to foster the principles of good sportsmanship, tolerance, leadership, and useful citizenship.
