The Arlington Sports Hall of Fame honors those from the community who have excelled as an athlete, coach or other contributor to sports, and through such achievement have gained state or national recognition.
The Better Sports Club of Arlington, at its second annual awards banquet held on November 15, 1958, established the Arlington Sports Hall of Fame when Arlington businessman George McQuinn, a former Washington-Lee High School athlete and 12-year major league baseball player with the Cincinnati Reds, St. Louis Browns, Philadelphia Athletics and N.Y. Yankees became the Hall of Fame's first inductee.
In 1992, the members of the Better Sports Club, to safeguard the name, its history and concept, voted to have the Hall of Fame become a separate nonprofit organization. The Arlington Sports Hall of Fame was officially incorporated in Virginia on June 10, 1992.
In addition to perpetuating the memory and accomplishments of its inductees, the Arlington Sports Hall of Fame seeks to serve the youth of the community by way of athletic programs and related activities. These programs and activities are coordinated by its volunteer members to foster the principles of good sportsmanship, tolerance, leadership, and meaningful citizenship.
