BALTIMORE, Md. - March 18, 2018 - It was a night of cheers, tears and celebration at the 2018 USA Field Hockey Hall of Fame & Awards Gala, presented by STX. In conjunction with the inaugural USA Field Hockey Summit, presented by AstroTurf, the 30th Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony was held at the Lord Baltimore Hotel in Baltimore, Md. Since its establishment in 1988, the USA Field Hockey Hall of Fame has recognized athletes and honorary members for their contributions to the sport on and off the pitch. In 2018, USA Field Hockey created several additional awards to more broadly recognize, honor and celebrate individuals across the hockey community whose contributions have made a major and lasting impact on the game of field hockey in the United States.

Check out some of the best picture-perfect moments from this year's ceremony.
