2016 Hall of Fame Class

MARSHALL, Minn. - The Marshall Baseball Association (MBA) and the Marshall A’s will induct five members into the Marshall Baseball Hall of Fame on Friday, June 3, at Legion Field.

The Ace Hardware/MDI Marshall Baseball Hall of Fame class will be inducted in a ceremony prior to Marshall’s game versus Sacred Heart starting at 7:30 p.m.

The 2016 Hall of Fame class includes Lionel Bolden, Dean Champine, Mike Gort, Darrel Wiener and Pauline Wiener. All five inductees played vital roles for the Marshall A’s and Marshall baseball, either for their play on the field or their countless hours of volunteering at the concessions stand, coaching or organizing numerous tournaments.

The weekend will conclude on Saturday, June 4, with the 6th Annual Marshall A’s Golf Tournament at the Marshall Golf Club. The two-person scramble will begin at 11 a.m. and costs $50. All players, alumni, fans and friends are welcome to play and support the A’s. Space is limited, so sign-up today!

The inaugural Hall of Fame class inducted in 2015 included Larry Knigge, Jerry Krause, Jim Muchlinski and Jimmy Verdeck.
