“The Roy Hobbs Baseball Hall of Fame is established to recognize and honor individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the game of baseball through their involvement with Roy Hobbs Baseball for at least 10 years, the Roy Hobbs World Series and their local leagues and teams. Individuals shall have made contributions as players, coaches, managers, umpires and administrators. Contributions should have been made on and off the field of play, all impacting the dugout; a prime consideration for induction is the individual’s contributions to the game, their teammates and baseball colleagues.”
Ambassador of Baseball
"Roy Hobbs’ Ambassador of Baseball Award is presented during the annual Roy Hobbs Hall of Fame celebration. Recipients (not to be confused with inductees) are associated with Roy Hobbs Baseball and are selected at the discretion of the Roy Hobbs Hall of Fame Trustees. Recipients are recognized with a plaque for their Meritorious Service as an Ambassador of Amateur Baseball."
The Roy Hobbs Hall of Fame is guided by the RH Hall of Fame Board of Trustees, which developed the Mission Statement that has been the guidepost throughout the nomination and election process, which, this year, included voting by the existing members of the HoF. We want to express our heartfelt appreciation to this year's Trustees and the many volunteers who spent their time gathering background information on the nominees and getting us to this day.
