Sports Legends was conceived by Chris Anton and a group of individuals
who were looking for a way to raise money to fund two scholarships given
through the Maine Baseball Hall of Fame.
a dinner honoring Ted Shiro the group decided it was time to organize
formally, draw up a set of by-laws and work to increase the number of
scholarships awarded and sports to be represented by honoring outstanding
Maine athletes and other individuals who have contributed to the Maine
sports scene. Providing scholarship support for Maine high school athletes
who meet prescribed standards is the primary objective of this organization.
