Charleston Baseball Hall of Fame committee taking nominations for 2016 class

The time for Charleston Baseball Hall of Fame voting is approaching, and the committee is seeking nominations from fans for the 2016 ballot by May 13.

Fans are encouraged to suggest individual names or specific teams to serve as potential nominees. The committee will then convene and decide on seven candidates to officially make the ballot.

From there, fans can vote for their favorites by going to the RiverDogs’ official website —

A maximum of three individuals or teams will get the nod.

Last year, fans voted in John Chalus and Lee Curtis, while the committee chose Pete Ayoub, a former high school administrator, to join them in the 2015 class. Chalus was a longtime baseball coach at Stratford High and Curtis was a star at the College of Charleston, where he was the Southern Conference’s Player of the Year in 2002 and 2003.

The members who are selected as part of 2016’s class will be honored in a pregame ceremony Aug. 5, when the RiverDogs square off with the Greenville Drive at Riley Park.
