On April 13, 1990, the charter members of the Greater Utica Sports Hall of Fame were announced in the lobby of Utica City Hall. 

Among the inductees are people who made names for themselves in every sport imaginable.  These fine athletes, coaches, officials, administrators, executives, and supporters have achieved fame, fortune, respect and admiration from all over the United States.  The Utica area’s athletic heroes have impacted the sports world in every corner of the country and in several parts of the world.  The members of the Greater Utica Sports Hall of Fame have shined bright lights on our area through their tremendous accomplishments on and off of the field of play.  All should be proud that their careers began here.

This year, the Greater Utica Sports Hall of Fame Board of Directors has dedicated the induction ceremonies in memory of longtime member of the Hall of Fame and sitting Secretary of the Board, Laura Bradley, who passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, January 7, 2020. Laura, who was inducted in 1997, was a valuable and integral part of the entire opera-tion of the Hall of Fame, and her absence is felt on a daily basis.
