The New Jersey Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony originally scheduled to take place on October 22, 2015, has been postponed to April of 2016. This move is made based on the Commissioners’ intention to permanently move the Ceremony to the spring and to accommodate inductee schedules. Once finalized, the date of the ceremony will be released to the media.
