Babe Ruth League President/CEO Steven Tellefsen said, "Pete Romano has been involved with our program for over 30 years. He is a very dedicated volunteer and plays a major role in the success the organization enjoys today. It is a proud moment to have a person of his caliber inducted into the Hall of Fame."
Pete Romano was the founder of Babe Ruth Baseball in West Virginia in 1950. He was the guiding coordinator of just about every activity carried out in the Babe Ruth League around the state for nearly 30 years.
During that time his services included both state and regional director for the program. He also served as district director for 20 years. His greatest joy was that he constantly had to pursue additional facilities to absorb the exponential growth of the program. A constant applauder of his volunteers, Pete always contributed the success of the West Virginia Babe Ruth Program to all the people who helped make the program a huge success.
Romano was inducted into the Babe Ruth Hall of Fame in 1978.
