On behalf of the staff of the Ted Williams Museum & Hitters Hall of Fame, thank you for supporting our annual
Induction Dinner at Tropicana Field. Our 2017 dinner is headlined by starting pitcher Chris Archer. Over the past
few years, your attendance has allowed for Ted Williams Foundation to support many local charities including
the Archway Foundation, Animal Rescue Shelters, Veterans Programs and scholarships in the Tampa Bay area.
We are proud to announce our 25th Annual Induction Dinner at Tropicana Field. The dinner will be held Saturday
February 18th, at 6:00pm. This year’s event includes a free autograph session, dinner on the field, charity auction

be the first to learn of our inductees and player signings at this year’s ceremony.
