The National College Baseball Hall of Fame will host its annual Night of Champions ceremony on Saturday (July 2) at the Overton Hotel and Conference Center. Each year the best players and coaches from the season are recognized, and a new class is inducted into the College Baseball Hall of Fame.

Part of the induction includes the past and present players and coaches giving oral histories and providing memorabilia to the exhibit. The Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library at Texas Tech University is the repository for the National College Baseball Hall of Fame. This yearly exhibit displays memorabilia and donations such as lockers, cleats, gloves, bats, a Hall of Fame poster and other items of interest from various college baseball players and coaches representing the history of the game.

Inductees for the 2016 class include former University of Texas coach Augie Garrido, former University of Houston player Tom Paciorek and former Florida State University standout J.D. Drew.

The items will be on display at Southwest Collection through August.
