Fodor's Review

The NIASHF was founded by George Randazzo in 1978 to honor Italian American athletes. Among the first inductee was baseball legend Joe DiMaggio; others include Rocky Marciano, Yogi Berra, Mary Lou Retton, and Phil Rizzuto. Originally housed in Elmwood Park, then Arlington Heights, the Hall of Fame came to Little Italy in 1994 with the help of Chicago native Jerry Colangelo, CEO of the Phoenix Suns. If you are interested in relics like the last coat worn by Vince Lombardi as the Green Bay Packers coach or Mario Andretti's Indy 500 race car, this is your kind of place.
