At a fundraising event held at Atchison Home, Mayor Sandy Stimpson appealed to those in attendance to help underwrite the Legacy of Legends Museum, an interactive exhibit to be housed on the ground floor of the RSA Tower. The Mayor’s remarks underscored the tremendous opportunity Mobile has to capitalize on its sports legacy, encouraging professional athletes native to Mobile to give back to the community and help support service organizations like Boys and Girls Clubs, Big Brothers/Big Sisters and Team Focus. He also acknowledged that sports is an economic engine for the city with the potential to bring in tournaments, exhibition games and in turn, tourist dollars. Speaking to crowd comprised of Hall of Famers as well as community leaders and Hall of Fame board members, Mayor Stimpson indicated that the time is now to get this project off the ground and support the Foundation and its goals.
