Humboldt Crabs
Hall of Fame

Camper with staff

The Humboldt Crabs Hall of Fame was founded in 2012 to honor the many great people who have contributed to our long history.

Each year on Alumni Weekend, a handful of carefully selected honorees are added to this prestigious group. The Hall of Fame committee is comprised of a number local baseball enthusiasts who have watched the team over the decades.
