Since its inception in 1939, the La Salle Club has provided continuous financial assistance to all athletic programs at Christian Brothers High School. Membership is comprised of alumni, parents, grandparents and friends of Christian Brothers who generously give their time and resources to meet the club's goals.

 

In addition to membership dues and donations, funds are generated through proceeds from the Baseball Hall of Fame Dinner and the Coaches’ Hall of Fame Dinner held each year.

 

Nominations and selection to the Baseball Hall of Fame is based upon a combination of the following criteria:

 

·60 years or older
 

·Must have distinguished themselves by participating significantly in the game of baseball as a player, manager, scout, umpire or sponsor

·Level of participation may be high school, college, semi-pro or professional

·Must be from the greater Sacramento area or performed locally.
