Welcome to the Dave Rotan Sr.
Hall of Fame Gallery.

Here, you will see the pictures and a wrapup of the Hall of Fame careers of the members of the Rotan League Hall of Fame. Navigation to the individual pages is done through the Hall of Fame.

It is a cliche in sports to say that members of a hall of fame have entered the "Pantheon of Greatness". That's probably a little overdone. The members here were all great players, true. They all contributed, each in his own way, to the league and to the lore of softball in Fishtown.

Our point here is that they should not be forgotten. In many ways, the league today is a direct result of their pioneering efforts.

The hall of fame would like to thank the familys of the members in the hall for all of their great support in remembering those love ones..........

The Gallery is not finished, as you can see. We still need pictures of a few of the players. Hopefully, these will be here soon.

So, enjoy the exhibit. If you have any comments, please leave them on the Forum.
