"We wanted to recognize and honor those who are not just obvious choices, but unsung heroes in straight pool history that might not have been noticed on other ballots. There are many legendary players whose names have only been made known to me in the past few years from our resurrection of the World 14.1 Tournament", said Charlie Williams, Founder of Dragon Promotions.
One of the goals of the event is to honor the champions of 14.1 that have passed and honor those who are still living. The Straight Pool Hall of Fame goals are also to cover all the expenses of the living inductee to the event and the Hall of Famer's costs in playing in the event.
