Web Wednesdays – August 11, 2010
Web Wednesdays – each Wednesday we will feature a website that we’ve come across while in our process of searching for inspiration, the latest trends, or learning about anything and everything we can get our hands on that interests us.
This Wednesday we want to highlight one of our own, a local website with a national reach – The Basketball Hall of Fame.
The Class of 2010 will be Enshrined at Springfield’s Symphony Hall on Friday, August 13, 2010. It’s amazing to have such a great historical asset here in Springfield. For all the local readers, you should visit the Basketball Hall of Fame located at 1000 Hall of Fame Avenue (aka West Columbus Avenue) in Springfield, and if you are reading from afar – visit the website and enjoy all the fun facts and history that it has to offer about the great game of basketball.
The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame is home to nearly three hundred inductees and more than 40,000 square feet of basketball history. Located on the picturesque banks of the Connecticut River, the new museum is a fitting shrine to the game Dr. Naismith invented more than a century ago. The landmark structure is one of the world’s most distinctive monuments punctuating the Springfield skyline and stirring the spirits of basketball fans everywhere. Hundreds of interactive exhibits share the spotlight with skills challenges, live clinics, and shooting contests. And of course there is enough basketball history to impress the world’s most avid sports fans!
