Binghamton Sports Hall of Fame comes to Oakdale Mall

The Hall of Fame inducted 16 members at a ceremony back in April

JOHNSON CITY, N.Y. - Following its inaugural induction class dinner in April, the Greater Binghamton Sports Hall of Fame has a temporary new home.

The Oakdale Mall will house the Hall of Fame plaques for now until a permanent location can be found. 

The Hall of Fame welcomed 16 members at a ceremony back in April.

Inductees include former Union-Endicott football coach Fran Angeline, Binghamton University Basketball star Bess Greenberg, and Martial Arts Master Hidy Ochiai.

Hall of Fame Founder Tony Quagliata said our area is rich in athletic talent.

"It's just a variety of different sports. I've already had a few submissions from the public who to possibly induct this coming year. There's people like trap shoot people, just different various sports that you may not think of unless you're involved in them. We have a tremendous amount of sports talent in this community," he said.

In addition to showing off the new location, Quagliata also presented $1,000 donations to both the Boys and Girls Clubs of Binghamton and Western Broome.

New this year is the opportunity for the public to suggest inductees for next year's dinner.
