William E. Whitehurst


To be elected into the Babe Ruth Hall of Fame, you must be a person who played a major role in the development of the Babe Ruth program for young players ages five through eighteen years of age.

Bill was certainly this type if individual and more deserving of this prestigious award. Bill, through his many positions in Babe Ruth Baseball, played a vital role in the development of Babe Ruth in all ages. Bill held many positions in Babe Ruth League, such as Coach, Manager, League President, District Commissioner, State and Regional Commissioner. In 1985, Bill was named State Commissioner of the year for the Southeast Region. His leadership was excellent as he was most dedicated. As District and State Commissioner, his leadership led to the growth of Eastern North Carolina in all divisions of the program.  Bill served as Regional Commissioner from 1988 until his death on January 6, 1995. He was an excellent Regional Commissioner as well as Board Member. As a Regional Commissioner, his tournaments were respected by each of his State Commissioners. As a board Member, he was a good listener and his decisions were always made in the best interest of the players.

Bill contributed at all levels of the program and certainly played a major role in his 30 plus years in making Babe Ruth Baseball the success that it is today.
