Kudos to Jim Boyle BHHS '75 for helping with the implementation and the formation of the BHHS HOF and for his due diligence and long hours to make it a reality.

Congratulations to all inductees. All are certainly deserving.

However, what greatly saddens me is the glaring omission off ANY baseball player into the Hall. As an avid baseball fan and proud parent of one of the most successful players (and holder of numerous all time power records) omitting baseball from the Hall is truly an injustice. The 2012 team went to the section finals and no team in recent memory went that far. What could possibly be the reason?

The teams only qualify 7 seven years after they play, so 2012 team of any type will not qualify for consideration until 2019. In addition, the only team voted in was a State Champion and many others went to the State Finals or Semi-Finals in different sports, so a team that did not win the Sectionals may very be excellent, but there other teams that may have gone farther in post-season or had a superior record, as well as had more All-State or All-American Bobcats than others. There are HOF inductees in the first class that played baseball, so technically there will be BHHS Sports HOF members in the first class that were very good baseball players. One might want to see how the 2nd and 3rd Class of inductees sort themselves out, as there are some remarkable BHHS sports that have no representation yet, but may likely near-term. Athletes need to wait 10 years to qualify for consideration into the HOF.

Who coached these fine athletes ? Why omitt their names?

The BHHS Sports HOF inductees typically played multiple sports and in some cases may have had multiple coaches even in an individual sport. So it would require one of the HOF Committee volunteers to go back into the boxes and boxes and identify the potential 8-12 seasons of coaches. If you would like you could contact the new Athletic Director at BHHS and ask if you could take on that project.
