Babe Ruth League President/CEO Steven Tellefsen said, "Carmine Salvatore has been involved with our program for about 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."
Salvatore has been a sponsor of the 16-18 Babe Ruth League in Stamford since its inception in 1966. He is one of the original organizers of the league. Salvatore's most noted achievement was serving as Host President of the 1971 World Series held in Stamford and also won by the Stamford host team.
Through the years Mr. Salvatore dedicated his time and money to help make the SSBRL program the outstanding success that it was and still is presently in 2011. Without people like Salvatore, Babe Ruth Baseball would not be the same caliber.
Ex-President, the late Ronald Tellefsen said, "Stamford, Connecticut, under the guidance of Carmen Salvatore as Host President, put on one of the most successful World Series' in the history of Babe Ruth Baseball. Without dedicated people like Carmen Salvatore, Babe Ruth Baseball would not be the success that it is today throughout the country."
Salvatore has positively influenced many young ballplayers over the years, perhaps, none more than Bobby Valentine. Valentine is currently the manager of the St. Louis Cardinals and speaks very highly of Salvatore.
