The HOF was introduced in 2005 with former Wangaratta Rovers' coach Bob Rose one of the inaugural inductees and it quickly became a winner.
"It's disappointing, but it's the world we live in at the moment," chairman Ron Montgomery revealed.
"I just hope we don't lose too much momentum."
There's been 87 inductees.
"We made the decision back in January to suspend HOF at the same time we decided not to participate in interleague," O and M chairperson David Sinclair said.
"The Board revisited that decision in April and again felt that due to the uncertainty of the current environment, we would be best to put the HOF function on hold.
