Where the Game Lives On
The Missouri Sports Hall of Fame celebrates the accomplishments made by athletes of our past, while inspiring future athletes to succeed. All of our inductees have helped mold Missouri sports to what it is today.
The Hall of Fame opened it doors in 1994 thanks to Springfield businessman John Q. Hammons. Inside, we have over 4,000 items of sports memorabilia and exhibits. The two-story, 32,000 square foot building also features a number of interactive exhibits allowing you to experience the excitement for yourself. You can race your friends in the NASCAR simulator, step into the batters box against a Major League Baseball pitcher, throw football passes, and much more. Adjacent to the Hall of Fame is the Legends Walk of Fame. The Legends Walk of Fame features busts and statues of notable Show Me State sports figures honored with the yearly Legends Award.
Every year the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame hosts several special events catering to avid sports fans. Our annual enshrinement event inducts exceptional Missouri athletes into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame. We offer four Sports Enthusiasts Luncheons annually. We also are a part of several celebrity golf tournaments in Lake of the Ozarks, Kansas City, Springfield and St. Louis including the Stan Musial Hall of Fame Championship. We also host the annual Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper, a stop on the PGA Web.com Tour, that raises money for children’s charities of the Ozarks.
