Hall of Fame
The Potomac Wiffleball League Hall of Fame shared space with the league offices until December 2012 at 2852 Connecticut Ave NW, in the Woodley Park neighborhood of Washington, DC.
At that time the building was taken over by greedy developers who decided to gut it and turn it into condos.
No individual players have been inducted to the Hall of Fame, but the Hall has been collecting memoribilla from special events, including shirts, bats, balls, and scorecards.
The Hall of Fame was open to the public before it closed, every day of the year, except Christmas Day. Post-season Champions Dinners were also held at the Hall of Fame during the 2010 to 2012 seasons.
The League is currently looking for a replacement facility.
Player induction has long been discussed. Commissioner Gallaway appointed a blue-ribbon commission to study the issue of player induction. The following recommendation were made, but have not been acted upon.
- There shall be an annual ballot to induct players into the Hall of Fame.
- Any player with a minimum of 200 Plate Appearances shall be eligible for induction into the Hall of Fame
- At no time shall the membership of the players in the Hall of Fame equal more than 10% of the players eligible for induction.
- Any player with a minimum of 100 Plate Appearances shall be eligible to vote on players to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
- Each voter shall be entitled to vote for up to two times the number of eligible inductions that could be made on their ballot.
- Players that appear on 75% of the ballots cast, shall be elected for induction into the Hall of Fame, unless the amount of players meeting that criteria would violate the 10% membership cap, in which case the the total number of players receiving 75% of the vote shall be elected in order from appearing on most ballots to least amount of ballots until all positions are full.
- Non-Players may be inducted through a special balloting process, separate from the player process.
As of April 1, 2015, there are currently 65 eligible players and 146 eligible voters under these rules. The Hall of Fame Ballot provides a listing of all eligible players.
