Inscription.  
The Virginia H. Farah Foundation's early support of the Eck Stadium Phase IV renovation project was instrumental in making it a reality. The Foundation supports selected charitable causes throughout the world. Its Trustees chose to give something back to the childhood hometown of its founder, by the naming of the "Virginia H. Farah Foundation All-American Club". This is a living testament to the quality of the WSU Baseball program. Thank you from Shocker Baseball.

Dedicated this day, April 8, 2000.
 
Erected 2000 by Wichita State University.
