Many people ask, “How does one become a member of the Hall of Fame?”
Nominations are accepted from November 15 to January 15 of each year with the nomination form being posted on this site and in area newspapers in October and November of each year. FULLY COMPLETED Nomination Forms are then submitted to the Secretary of the Hall of Fame after which they are given to the Screening Committee of the Mid-Ohio Valley Sports Hall of Fame. Those that make it through the Screening Committee are then voted upon by the entire Mid-Ohio Valley Sports Hall of Fame Committee.

Tribute to Bob Zide
The Mid-Ohio Valley Sports Hall of Fame congratulates the family of the late Bob Zide (Bob was responsible for the creation of the MOV Hall of Fame) for Bob's induction into the 2014 National Sporting Goods Association Sporting Goods Industry Hall of Fame at the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort and Spa in Indian Wells, California.
"This year's inductees embody exactly what members of the Aporting Goods Industry Hall of Fame should - integrity, values and a will to succeed and an innovative spirit upon which our industry is built," said Hall of Fame committee Chairman Bob Dickman
