Babe Ruth League President/CEO Steven Tellefsen said," Ralph Sellers has been involved with our program for over 25 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."
Ralph Sellers was one of the main people responsible for bringing the Babe Ruth World Series to Abbeville, Louisiana in the mid-70's. Sellers had overseen the city's parks and recreational services since 1976, until his passing in 1981.
In 1953, he became one of the original managers of the Babe Ruth League. His participation as a manager influenced his progression in the Babe Ruth Baseball organization. He served as league president, district director, state director, and even the National Committee.
To show its appreciation, Abbeville named one of the oldest youth baseball complexes Ralph Sellers Field. This was recognition to Ralph's endless dedication to the growth of Babe Ruth in Alabama, and throughout the country.
