The Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum’s class of 2021 will consist of 16 individuals and one team that have made significant contributions to the history of baseball in Canada in a unique virtual ceremony that will take place on Tuesday, November 16 at 7pm ET.

Along with the induction ceremony, the winners of the 2019 and 2020 Jack Graney Award, handed out annually for media excellence, and the James Tip O’Neill Award, which is presented to the top Canadian player each year, will be honoured.

The 16 individual inductees, all of whom are deceased, and one team were selected by a six-person Committee comprised of Canadian baseball historians from across the country.

“With the cancelation of the 2021 in-person induction ceremony due to the pandemic, we felt it was the right time to look back and honour some of the trailblazers and pioneers of Canadian baseball,” said Jeremy Diamond, the chair of the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame’s board of directors. “I’m proud that we will be celebrating this diverse group of inductees, each of whom has had a profound impact on the sport in our country.”

The Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame’s class of 2020, which consists of former players Justin Morneau (New Westminster, B.C.), Duane Ward, John Olerud and legendary Montreal Expos broadcaster Jacques Doucet, will be inducted separately in an in-person ceremony in St. Marys, Ont., on June 18, 2022.
