It is time to vote in this year’s elections for the One Pocket Hall of Fame! Our HOF dinner will be held at the Derby City Classic Wednesday night, January 30. To learn more about all of our inductees over the prior years, please visit the One Pocket Hall of Fame here on this web site.

Please note you can vote for more than one candidate, but be sure to select all of the candidates you wish to vote for before you submit your vote. Once you submit your vote it cannot be changed, so be sure to complete your selections carefully before you click on the “Vote Now” button.

Jaffar ‘Patch-Eye’ Basheer (deceased) - A lifelong road player with outstanding all-around talent, with a cerebral gentlemanly approach to the game. Fellow HOF'er Cliff Joyner is one of many players who learned from and were inspired by 'Patch-Eye'.

Marcel Camp (deceased)– One of the early great One Pocket players credited with influencing the rise in One Pocket in the years before Johnston City. Camp was a solid all around player and action legend.

Johnny Ervolino (deceased) - A two-time Stardust Open One Pocket champion, and for years one of the top players in the legendary action rooms of NYC.

Scott Frost – Scott has been synonymous with One Pocket for twenty years. A ferocious money player, Scott has also picked up several major tournament wins along the way. In recent years he has produced several instructional DVD's that have helped popularize his aggressive "Power One Pocket" style.

Johnny 'Irish' Lineen (deceased) - An top early player considered to be one of the best during the years leading up to the beginning of the Johnston City events.

Rafael Martinez - Considered one of the most creative One Pocket players of his generation, Rafael has finished at or near the top in many tournaments.

Eddie Robin - Eddie was one of those rare players that excelled at both One Pocket and Three Cushion Billiards (twice USA champion at 3C). But he is best known today for his top notch instructional books, which played a big role in the growth of One Pocket over the last 25+ years.

Joey Spaeth (deceased) – A Johnston City regular and solid all-around competitor for many years. Joey came up in Cincinnati in the same generation as ‘Clem’ Metz, and took to One Pocket early in his career.

Congratulations to Scott Frost, who will be our One Pocket Hall of Fame inductee at the Derby City Classic in January.

Our HOF dinner will be held Wednesday night, January 30th. You can make your reservations now online at http://www.onepocket.org/hall-of-fame-banquet-information/

The best way to support our HOF is to come Wednesday night and personally help honor the very BEST of One Pocket on their night!! It is a really wonderful time -- a very special combination of a good-natured roast and a serious tribute, that makes for a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the inductees, as they are recognized by their peers, their family & friends, and fans of the game of One Pocket.

If you cannot come, you can still support our Hall of Fame by purchasing a ticket and making it available to one of the many special guests that are always in attendance. This group includes all the prior inductees who "get a free pass", and help make the event special both for the attendees, and for the inductee, who is truly being recognized "by his peers".

Congratulations to Scott Frost, and see you in January!!
