Why not, right? The JAL is modeled off pro sports in every regard, so establishing a Hall of Fame is really just right in line with everything else.
The league has actually been somewhat secretly putting this together for a while now, it just took some time to nail down what the process would be and such. So, to keep things short, sweet, and simple, here's how the JAL Hall of Fame will work...
Each year around the anniversary of the league (May 18, 2015) the new class of Hall of Famers will be enshrined in.
An individual earns a point by either winning an award, or by winning a championship. For example, if someone was a 3x all-star, 1x MVP and a 4x champion they would have 8 total points.
Players: 10 points needed
Management (owners, GM's, ect): 3 points needed
In every Hall of Fame class one retired individual who does not meet the requirements for automatic induction can be inducted in by the commissioners of the league.
Team in with
The commissioners of the league decide which team(s) an individual is in with.
