Hall of Fame Banquet Information

This page is dedicated to the most up-to-date news and information releated to the next Hall of Fame Banquet. Currently we are in a rebuilding phase following the back to back losses of Grady Mathews and Freddy the Beard. It’s not just the obvious loss of our Master of Ceremonies. It is also the inestimable role those two played in helping vet candidates, develop back stories and assist with inside information and contacts — all the background work that happens well ahead of the dinner. As part of our rebuilding phase we are looking at securing sponsors and/or other forms of financial assistance to make sure we have all bases covered moving forward.

Advanced tickets are available now for those who would like to ensure their place at one of the VIP tables, and at the same time contribute a little extra to support the One Pocket HOF. Advance tickets are $100/person, and include two complimentary drinks from the bar.

We also offer a $200/person advanced ticket for those of you that would like to become a ‘Backer‘ of the One Pocket Hall of Fame. Contributors at the ‘Backer’ level can choose to have their own name or a business name, including a brief dedication listed in the printed banquet program, as well as here on the OnePocket.org web site, and your generous contribution will give a real boost to our efforts to recognize these great players.

As in prior years, any remaining available dinner tickets will be for sale at the Derby City Classic on a first come, first served basis.

Often this event completely fills, so I encourage you to guarantee your place at a table with these legends of the game by purchasing your tickets before the Derby City Classic! In keeping with the mission of OnePocket.org, every dollar raised by this event will go towards the One Pocket Hall of Fame.

  • If you would like your name and/or congratulatory message to be included in the next HOF program by reserving your seat at the $200 ‘Backer‘ level, then you must contact us before the program goes to print.

    • This event does not require formal attire; simply dress however you are comfortable knowing you may have your picture taken.
    • Everyone who attends receives a limited edition printed program including photos of the inductees.
    • There will be plenty of photo and autograph opportunities as well as a chance to meet and congratulate all of the current and prior inductees present.
  • Tentatively this will be at the 2019 DCC but full details will be released as they become available.
