The development of the Ambassador of Baseball award was the result of many voices suggesting that Roy Hobbs recognize Brian Mullen for his years of service to the World Series, service to Roy Hobbs players and service to the Game, Roy Hobbs President Tom Giffen said.
“A common theme running though those messages was that Brian Mullen was an Ambassador of the Game. For Roy Hobbs, the establishment of the Brian Mullen Ambassador of Baseball recognition seemed like ‘The Natural’ thing to do.”
The Brian Mullen Ambassador of Baseball award is determined at the sole discretion of the RHHoF Trustees. Honorees will be presented at the annual Hall of Fame induction celebration, and their names will be included on a perpetual plaque that hangs in the Roy Hobbs World Series headquarters.
The selection of Mullen as the namesake is reflected in his impact on the Roy Hobbs World Series since he joined the Hobbs staff in 1994 – 2019 is Mullen’s 26th year in Hobbs gear.
Glenn Miller wrote this about Mullen in 2015:
“Every baseball fan knows about those rare creatures – five-tool players. Those are guys who can hit, hit with power, run, throw and field.
“Brian Mullen … is a five-tool player, albeit 5 different tools
“Five tools? He’s got them in abundance.
• Site manager
• Statistician / helps seed playoff fields
• Customer relations
“The last item may be the most important to Mullen. ‘The players are the real stars,’ he said. ‘If they didn’t come down I wouldn’t have a job.’
“From Roy Hobbs President Tom Giffen: ‘Brian sets the standard for working with customers on a one-on-one basis. He is the guy with the perpetual smile and a personal first-name greeting for everyone.’
“Yes, Brian Mullen is an Ambassador with a capital ‘A.’ He does it all, like a five-tool player.
“And he does with a smile for everybody.”
