About Missouri Sports Hall of Fame | The Missouri Sports Hall of Fame celebrates the accomplishments made by athletes of our past, while inspiring future athletes to succeed. All of our inductees have helped mold Missouri sports to what it is today. The Hall of Fame opened it doors in 1994 thanks to Springfield businessman John Q. Hammons. Inside, we have over 4,000 items of sports memorabilia and exhibits. The two-story, 32,000 square foot building also features a number of interactive exhibits allowing you to experience the excitement for yourself. You can race your friends in the NASCAR simulator, step into the batters box against a Major League Baseball pitcher, throw football passes, and much more. Adjacent to the Hall of Fame is the Legends Walk of Fame. The Legends Walk of Fame features busts and statues of notable Show Me State sports figures honored with the yearly Legends Award.
