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."
In 1964, Marvin Lemmon formed the Hermiston Babe Ruth League and served as League President for five years. In 1969, he was elected District Commissioner and served that capacity until 1975, when he was appointed Assistant State Commissioner.
