The Board of Directors of the Baseball Reliquary is pleased to announce that Jeff Boujoukos has been selected as the recipient of the 2020 Hilda Award. The award will be formally presented at the Shrine of the Eternals 2020 Induction Day, which, due to the coronavirus pandemic, has been postponed until 2021. The festivities will also include the presentation of the 2020 Tony Salin Memorial Award and the induction of the 2020 class of electees to the Baseball Reliquary’s Shrine of the Eternals: Rube Foster, Max Patkin, and Bob Costas.
Established in 2001 in memory of Hilda Chester, the legendary Brooklyn Dodgers fan, the Hilda Award recognizes distinguished service to the game by a baseball fan. To Baseball Reliquarians, the award is comparable to the Oscar or Emmy: it acknowledges the devotion and passion of baseball fans, and the many ways in which they exhibit their love affair with the national pastime.
