Legendary local athletes are up for nomination to the brand-new Sacramento Sports Hall of Fame.
The list of nominees is 56 people long and includes the likes of Dusty Baker, Tedy Bruschi, Urijah Faber, Natalie Gulbis and Steve Sax. Five will be elected to the hall of fame this year.
Voting started Nov. 16 and will go until Dec. 20.
As the hall of fame notes, athletes nominated needed to have met four criteria: born or raised in the Sacramento area and attended a local high school, succeeded at multiple levels of play, sustained their success throughout their career, and made a positive impact on the community.
A party will be held Feb. 2 at Thunder Valley Casino Resort to honor those selected. The public will be invited to come and can purchase tickets to go. FOX40’s own Jim Crandell will host the event.
The Sacramento Hall of Fame was founded by sports radio personality TC Martin, a Sacramento native.
