The 2022 Hall of Fame banquet is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18, in the Cashion Building Banquet Room on the Baylor University campus. Tickets are $50 per person, with table sponsorships also available at the Green ($600) and Gold ($800) levels and can be purchased by contacting the “B” Association at 254-710-3045 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Organized in 1960, the Baylor Athletics Hall of Fame recognizes and honors individuals whose participation and contributions have enriched and strengthened the university’s athletics program. Student-athletes are required to wait 10 years after completing their eligibility before they can be nominated for the Hall of Fame.
Beginning with the inaugural 1960 class that included coach Floyd “Uncle Jim” Crow and baseball’s Ted Lyons, 257 honorees have been elected or already enshrined in the Hall of Fame, while Newton and Mehaffey become the 30th and 31st additions to the Wall of Honor. The Hall of Fame and Wall of Honor recipients also will be honored on the field at McLane Stadium during the Baylor-TCU football game on Saturday, Nov. 19.
