By Staff, 08/9/21 9:30 AM

HOPE – Part of the Watermelon Festival’s annual softball tournament is the induction of players into the Southwest Arkansas Softball Hall of Fame.

This was done Friday evening at the Kelly Field Complex. However, first up was the naming of the 2020 Players of the Year. They were: Tyler Weir, Kason Wood, Jackson Murphy and Zach Bufkin.

Once this was done, the new members of the HoF had their “bios” read, detailing all the teams they played for and their accomplishments, along with anecdotes from their playing days. Not all of those inducted could be there due to personal or health reasons.

However, the 2020 inductees into the SWAR Softball HoF are: Troy Thomaas, Leonard Plumley, Scott Thomas, Tony Thrasher, Mikey Yoder, Rodney Shavers, Ricky Hurt, Derrick Nolen, Chad Rook, Paul Drake, Carlos Simmons, Quincy Dickens, Mike Miller, David Cassels, Sam Bolen and Charles Higdon.
