The newly formed Board held its first induction banquet in 2000 at the Elks Lodge in Mesa, Arizona. Under the leadership of newly elected President, Dennis Ferguson, the Foundation inducted nine teams and twenty players or contributors into the Arizona Softball Hall of Fame.
From 2002 to 2010, under new President John White and Vice President, Karen Mischlipsy, the Foundation has grown and inducted ninety-three men and women into the Arizona Softball Hall of Fame. As of September of 2010, there are a total of 198 men and women inducted into the Arizona Softball Hall of Fame.
In the beginning the Arizona Softball Hall of Fame had several "homes." Eventually it ended up at the Hayden Library on the ASU campus. This was due, in part, to the Arizona Historical Society contact that the Arizona Softball Foundation had made. However, after a while the Arizona Historical Society was directed by the Hayden Library staff to remove the plaques since the Library does not permit permanent displays. The Historical Society removed the plaques and for a few years they lay boxed and in storage out of the public eye.
In the spring of 2005, the current Board of Directors contacted the Prescott Parks, Recreation and Library Department to inquire about possible available space to display the Hall of Fame plaques and memorabilia.
Luckily for the Arizona Softball Foundation, Prescott did have space available and on May 27, 2005 the grand opening of the Arizona Softball Hall of Fame was held. Each year the ASF board sets new goals for the Hall of Fame to meet the on going donations of memorabilia and the expected growth. Fund raising is an continuous project to cover the cost of new display cases, storage, tracking all memorabilia donations, and future expansion.
