With 6 professional teams and several Division 1 college sports teams, the Bay Area Sports Scene is one of the largest and most vibrant in the country. In the last 60 years, Bay Area teams have combined to win 18 championships, and numerous other incredible seasons. With so much greatness, the athletes who made it possible had to be remembered. That led to, in 1980, the establishment of the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame. But BASHOF is more than just honoring sports legends. It’s also about giving back to the Bay Area community. Today, our guest is Kevin O’Brien, president and CEO of BASHOF, to talk about the impact sports has had on Bay Area culture, and how BASHOF strives to get the youth of the Bay Area involved in sports as a way of bettering their lives.
