CANTON, OHO -- Commissioner David Baker, along with Pro Football Hall of Fame President Steve Perry, Columbus Destroyers Owner Jim Renacci, and af2 President Jerry Kurz, today participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony as the Pro Football Hall of Fame unveiled its first-ever exhibit dedicated to chronicling the past, present and future of the Arena Football League.
"I can't think of [a milestone] that is more meaningful for our league than an exhibit in the Pro Football Hall of Fame," said AFL commissioner David Baker.
The exhibit itself will feature both AFL historical and interactive elements that are designed to illustrate the league's fast-paced action. A large photomural of an AFL field will serve as the backdrop to a display that will feature a large video screen - which will play a continuous two-minute highlight loop - a display panel and two interactive touch screens that will host a variety of videos designed to communicate the league's past, present and future. The display will be built on real AFL turf and guests will be able to examine an official AFL football, jersey and helmet.
