The New York State Baseball Hall of Fame inducts members based on a "Body of Work" formula. The "Body of Work" formula is based on career contributions to the game. Our body of advisors works to research the data. Among our advisors are John Doherty (Detroit Tigers),David Palmer (Expos,Phillies, Braves) Gary Holle (Brewers) and Rick Bernardo (Maine,Korea)

A player, umpire, coach or contributor can either be born in NYS, retire in NYS or have contributed their "Body of Work" while in NYS. Players/coaches/umpires can be nominated by emailing us at : jaryla@aol.com
