Oiler Gusher returns500 fans induct 1st Hall of Famers

Like the return of salmon to the waters where they were born, the Peninsula Oilers have returned to their annual Gusher, an event that for years promised the coming of summer and Alaska League Baseball for the Kenai. The popular event, once held at the Kenai National Guard Armory, was discontinued after nine eleven when the Armory was closed to public events. "I am thrilled with tonight's success after nearly a decade absence of the celebrity Gusher. One of the things that have been a goal of mine since arriving in 2006 was to bring the Gusher back, and when the Oilers Board of Directors met to discuss this, I said lets take it a step further and add the 1st annual Hall of Fame induction to the event," said Shawn Maltby, Oiler General Manager. "There are so many pioneers that started the Oiler program here and brought it to where it is today, that we thought it was time to recognize them and some of the great ball players that have come through here and had successful careers on and off the field. The Oiler Hall of Fame was certainly long overdue and there will be no shortage of inductees in the future, as we have had some well known major leaguers play and coach for the Oilers," added Maltby. First inductees to the Oiler Hall of Fame for their organizational support were Dick Morgan, Dwain Gibson, and Judy Buffington.
