The Hagerstown Suns have announced the creation of a Suns Hall of Fame and the inaugural class to be inducted in 2009.
Grady Little, Mike Mussina, Vernon Wells and Matt Cain will all be honored at Municipal Stadium, and 1,000 commemorative bronze statuettes of each former Sun will be handed out during the season.
As part of the promotion, the Suns will be offering a special Hall of Fame ticket package, including tickets to all four statuette giveaway nights and Opening Day, for $45. Fans purchasing the ticket package will also be guaranteed a statue each night, along with all VIP Full-Season and VIP Mini-Plan ticket holders.
"All four players spent time with the Suns, and their contributions to the game since leaving Hagerstown have warranted their inclusion," said Suns president and general manager Bob Flannery. "The fact that these four men came through Hagerstown with three different organizations and have gone on to great success in the Major Leagues makes this an excellent inaugural class for the Suns Hall Of Fame."
