    Roy Hobbs Hall of Fame

    Ambassador of Baseball

        AKRON, Ohio – The Trustees of the Roy Hobbs Hall of Fame have established of the Brian Mullen Ambassador of Baseball Award.

        Named for 21-year Roy Hobbs World Series employee Brian Mullen, the award will be presented annually at the discretion of the Trustees to recognize individuals for their Meritorious Service as an Ambassador of Amateur Baseball.

        “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,” the Trustees 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 Trustees said.

        Mullen, both its initial recipient and the face of Roy Hobbs Customer Service efforts since 1994, splits his time between Fort Myers and Boston, carrying his love for baseball, people and music wherever he goes.

        Mullen and a second recipient – Chuck Nave of Fort Myers – will be presented with Ambassador of Baseball plaques at the November induction celebration.

        Brian has worked as a field manager and statistician for the Roy Hobbs World Series since 1994, but to most players and managers he’s known as the guy who solves their problems at whatever field they find him, the guy with the perpetual smile and personal first-name greeting for everyone.

        “For Roy Hobbs Baseball, Brian Mullen sets the standard for working with customers on a one-on-one basis,” the Trustees said, “and he advises the Roy Hobbs leadership team on who’s played who, records, strength of schedule, and has become an integral part of setting up the playoff brackets each week of the Roy Hobbs World Series.”

        “Making this award a reality is another dream our family has had in the development of Roy Hobbs Baseball and the Roy Hobbs Hall of Fame,” said Roy Hobbs President Tom Giffen.

        “For Brian Mullen, this recognition is long overdue, and we are very happy to get this accomplished,” he said. “Brian is a friend, he is a right-hand man when it comes to setting the playoffs each year at the World Series. When Brian speaks to results and statistics, we all listen, and listen good.”

        Mullen and Nave will be recognized with plaques for their Meritorious Achievement as Ambassadors of Baseball at the Hall of Fame induction ceremonies, tentatively scheduled for Sunday evening, November 15, 2015, at a site to be named.

    Monday, June 30

    Alan Gasper, 47, of Green, Ohio, passed away Friday, June 27, 2014 after nearly four years of battling Melanoma. Alan played with the Akron Redskins and with Sean Broom’s teams in Canton as well as attending a number of Roy Hobbs World Series.

    He was a volunteer coach with Special Olympics in Stark County and helped coach the Royal Knights softball team.

    For Sunday’s game at Copley, The Akron Crystal Clinic Indians pencilled Alan in the lead off spot in the batting order and thanks to the Kenmore Oriles for throwing the first pitch to Alan in a missing man formation.

    Alan’s family will receive friends on Tuesday, 5 pm until 8 pm at the Wood-Kortright-Borkoski Funeral Home, 703 E. Main St., Ravenna, where funeral services will be held at 11:00AM on Wednesday.

    With great sadness we report the passing of Ramon Vincente Santiago early Monday morning. Vince was 82, an inspiration to all as he battled Parkinsons the last 20 years, yet still worked hard to be able to play his beloved Beisbol up until 3 years ago. He was hospitalized last evening with a vicious septic bacterial infection ... and he passed on to his next starting assignment less than 6 hours later. Please keep his wife Myra and family in your prayers.
