History

As part of the celebration of the nation’s bicentennial in 1976, Delaware’s American Bicentennial Commission formed the Delaware Sports Museum and Hall of Fame with University of Delaware football coach ”Tubby” Raymond at the helm and Al Cartwright, chair of the hall of fame subcommittee.

 

For periods of time, our inductees' plaques were placed on display at the Grand Opera House, Bank of Delaware, the Wilmington Senior Center and the Balick Store. In later years, a search for a permanent home began in earnest.

 

The quest finally paid off when in 1993 the Delaware Sports Authority allocated what would become 5000 square feet for a permanent home for the Hall and Museum at the new Daniel Frawley Stadium built for the Wilmington Blue Rocks.
