Year Inducted – 2002

Another of the founding fathers of the famous Manchester A’s baseball program. Bill was instrumental in helping to secure sponsors in the beginning when he, Kevin Dunn, and Jerry Vance started the A’s. Some of the early sponsors who Bill recruited for financial or construction aid were: Jody Victor, Bob Seeley and Bob Lockhart of Lockhart Construction who all played a great hand in building Crown Field. Bill also helped a lot in producing the A’s sketchbooks, as commissioner of Manchester baseball leagues, announcing games and generally doing whatever the A’s needed as he would grind the millstone to aid in getting the job done.
