After CBA put together a Hall Of Fame Committee composed of several of our old timers, our council, and 3 very special guests. Original CBA members Founders and commisioners. The two people most responsible for the fun and structure we have today as the CBA, Gerald Benoit, and Claude LaMarre. We owe the hours we spend because the the vision they had which we uphold today. We also had on the committee Chris Boutin the original owner of the retired Quebec Capitales of the Dawson div, and former champion. LaMarre was the original owner of the Longue Pointe Hitmen also of the Dawson div, who later were nicknamed the "Loggers". Benoit was the owner of the Bodega Bay Madbirds of the Carter division later called the Montreal Royals. The Royals are presently the Staub champion Skokie Wolfmen owned by Wolfman Shapiro.

A confidential vote was taken and commentary and notes were sent in by the committee members. 6 members were selected as initial inductees. Originally there were 5 spots but a tie for the last spot resulted in a double nomination. Each year we will vote upon new candidates for the CBA Hall.
