This is the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame

On this episode your host Mike sits down with Lauren Schlepp, Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame museum curator. Established in 1986 originally as the Jim Thorpe Association, the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame main goal is to promote Oklahoma, while honoring and recognizing great Oklahoman’s who have represented the state positively at not only the state level, but also the national and international levels. In August of 2013, the two brands, which were literally the same organization with the same administration, same board of directors and same values, selected the name "Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame" as the cohesive umbrella brand of the organization going forward. “OUR MISSION...To encourage excellence through sports, academics, health and fitness; preserving our sports heritage, while building pride in Oklahoma in the spirit of Jim Thorpe.” The Hall of Fame is now located in the Bricktown Ballpark on the second level. This is a free museum, so next time you’re in Bricktown you should definitely stop by! Follow The Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame on Instagram @oksportshof and online at oksportshof.org.
