Sports Hall of Fame 2

The Miami Lakes Sports Hall of Fame was created to honor athletes, coaches, community members, and teams from the Town of Miami Lakes for their outstanding contribution or achievement in sport.

In January 2016, the Town Council approved the selection criteria for membership to the Miami Lakes Sports Hall of Fame to be located at the new Miami Lakes Optimist Park Clubhouse. The Hall of Fame will honor athletes, coaches, community members, and teams from the Town of Miami Lakes for their outstanding contribution or achievement in sport. As part of the criteria, the Sports Hall of Fame Committee was established to review nominations consistent with the criteria.

The Town of Miami Lakes and its Sports Hall of Fame Committee inducted the first inaugural class of the Miami Lakes Sports Hall of Fame at the Miami Lakes Optimist Clubhouse Grand Opening event on Saturday, May 13th. The Miami Lakes Sports Hall of Fame, an initiative brought forward by Mayor Manny Cid is located inside the new Miami Lakes Optimist Park Clubhouse at Miami Lakes Optimist Park, 6411 NW 162 Street.

The Town and its Sports Hall of Fame Committee sought nominations to honor athletes, coaches, community members, and teams from the Town of Miami Lakes for their outstanding contributions or achievements in sports. The Sports Hall of Fame Committee’s recommendations were unanimously approved by the Town Council at the May 2nd Town Council meeting. The members selected to be part of the inaugural class for the Miami Lakes Sports Hall of Fame are: former Miami Dolphins coach Don Shula, former Miami Dolphins player and broadcaster Jim Mandich, former Major League Baseball player Alex Ochoa, and longtime Miami Lakes Optimist Club member Jack McCall. During its selection process, the Committee felt that each of these four individuals epitomizes the basic criteria for selection of having made significant contributions to sport and that they have substantial connections to Miami Lakes.

 

The Town and its Sports Hall of Fame Committee proudly congratulate all the Sports Hall of Fame Inductees!
