The first induction ceremonies of the Greater Lansing Area Sports Hall of Fame took place in the bicentennial year of 1976. Ten individuals, and three teams were enshrined with the purpose of giving lasting recognition to outstanding individuals, athletic teams, and coaches from the city of Lansing and the surrounding communities. Since then, deserving individuals, and teams have been inducted each July.
