Year Inducted – 1991
Without the dedication and desire of sponsor’s to help greater Akron area baseball with monetary assistance, there would be no organized baseball as we have come to know and appreciate. Bill Jr. is one of those who has that desire. He sponsored the Crocker’s Bar and Grille team for several years. His style and backing of a team is an example to be followed. As a youngster he accompanied his father ( 1985 Hall of Famer Bill Crocker Sr. ) and was impressed by ( 1985 Hall of Famer Karl Borden’s ) sponsorship. This memory stayed with him and when the opportunity came, he felt he owed the community a pay back. The Crocker teams won several championships and have helped prepare several players for future induction into the Greater Akron Baseball Hall of Fame.
