One of the most prestigious events at the ABCA Convention is the ABCA/Diamond Sports Hall of Fame Banquet, which is held on the Friday evening of the convention and features the induction ceremony for the ABCA Hall of Fame as well as the presentation of the ABCA/Wilson Lefty Gomez Award.
The 2021 ABCA/Diamond Sports Hall of Fame Banquet will take place in the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center on Friday, January 8 at 6:30 p.m. The ABCA Hall of Fame Class of 2021 will be announced this July and those members will join the over 300 coaches in the ABCA Hall of Fame.
The ABCA/Wilson Lefty Gomez Award is named after the great Lefty Gomez and is presented annually to an individual who has contributed significantly to the game of baseball locally, national and internationally. The recipient of the 2021 ABCA/Wilson Lefty Gomez Award will be announced in August.
Tickets to the Hall of Fame Banquet presented by Diamond Sports will go on sale when registration opens for the 2021 ABCA Convention. All tickets must be purchased in advanced -- no tickets will be sold on-site. Banquet attendees are requested to wear semi-formal attire.
