Tom Dickson was shocked upon discovering last year there was nothing established to honor the tradition of baseball in Michigan.
The Lansing Lugnuts owner decided to change that.
The Lugnuts announced Wednesday the establishment of the Michigan Baseball Hall of Fame during a press conference at Cooley Law School Stadium.
The Hall of Fame will be similar to Monument Park at Yankee Stadium. The plaques of the inductees will be on permanent display beyond the wall in left-center field of the renovated Cooley Law School Stadium, which will feature a new 360-degree walkway around the stadium this season.
The Hall of Fame will officially open Saturday, June 27, which is when the inaugural class will be inducted.
The inaugural class will have 10 inductees that will be determined by a nine-member committee of baseball experts that includes Detroit Tigers broadcaster Mario Impemba, longtime Tigers scout Clyde Weir, former Tigers radio broadcaster Paul Carey, longtime area baseball coach Jake Boss Sr., MSU grad and Milwaukee Brewers broadcaster Joe Block, local sports anchors Fred Heumann and Tim Staudt, MHSAA assistant director Mark Uyl and former Michigan baseball coach Rich Maloney.

January 28, 1979, three-time heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali came to Mount Pleasant to speak to a crowd of about 2,000 at Rose Arena on the Central Michigan University campus. Those in attendance who hoped to hear Ali tell of his greatest fights against Liston and Frazier, or Foreman and Spinks were in for something more than the boisterous oration Ali used in and around the ring. The champ certainly spoke about boxing, but he spoke more about motivation, success, his faith, and working to make the world a better place for all of its citizens. The 37-year-old Ali, who had regained the heavyweight championship just four months prior, mentioned projects he would tackle after his boxing career was over. His plans included starting an organization to bring equality to people across the globe. This organization, World Organization of Rights, Liberty, and Dignity, was founded by Ali in 1985.
