Seaman High School's baseball program will induct its inaugural Hall of Honor class on Friday at approximately 5:30 p.m. at the Optimist Field, north of Seaman High School.

The Hall of Honor ceremony was originally scheduled to follow Seaman's varsity game against Washburn Rural, but due to COVID-19 protocols, that game will not be played Friday. Instead, the ceremony is not scheduled to follow a C team game.
