"If you respect our history and care about our presence, you may wear the Trophy of Honor in our future." Ralph Hall

The Texas Softball Hall Of Fame is built slowly over a lifetime. It is the sum total of every dream come true, every right decision, every promise kept, every positive thought, every timely word, and every heartfelt prayer. It is energized by the generator of honorable work. It glistens with the twins of humility and generosity. It is a precious place constructed with the bricks of tournaments and the mortar of leagues. It is a lifestyle of courage, faith, and skill which grows the seeds of greatness in the soil of sportsmanship. It is a place in the heart of service, where God looks when He smiles.

"Honor gets remembered, but legends never die." Babe Ruth

"We honor those who make softball history, not those who mock softball history." Ralph Hall 2-17-08

"ONLY THRU THE LENS OF HUMILITY CAN THE EYES OF SOFTBALL SEE TRUE GREATNESS." RALPH HALL

"My friends are like quiet angels who lift me to my feet." They know when this heart has the courage to move these legs in the right direction. Other legs will follow in the steps of sportsmanship.  As these footsteps echo in the Halls of Honor and  Honorable Mention, I will ask a simple question. Are those your steps I hear, my friend? I'm listening.  Ralph Hall 11-28-07
