Ted William Hitters Hall of Fame Induction

On Saturday February 10th, over 600 fans arrived at Spectrum Field in Clearwater Florida to take part in honoring the Class of 2018 Ted Williams Museum Inductees. Tony Perez, Dick Allen, Ron Guidry, J.R. Richard & Charlie Manuel were inducted on a beautiful night prior to the start of spring training. The Williams Hall of Fame was founded in February 1994 and is housed inside the Rays’ home ballpark, Tropicana Field, in St. Petersburg. Additionally, the Pitching Wall of Great Achievement was renamed in honor of former Philadelphia ace Roy Halladay.

The night included a free autograph session featuring four National Baseball Hall of Famers: Wade Boggs, Tony Perez, Andre Dawson, and Steve Carlton and a star studded list of honored attendees including George Foster, Luis Tiant and Willie Horton.

    In 2020, it is my prayer and hope that Dick Allen will finally receive the honor he deserves, when he is elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame! Cooperstown has a space just waiting for ole No. 15!
