Ruth League President/CEO Steven Tellefsen said, "Ted Denman 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."
Ted Denman organized a 16-18 Babe Ruth League in 1967 in Morristown, New Jersey. He had a great impact on the growth of the 16-18 Division in the Middle Atlantic Region. It was through his dedication and efforts that Babe Ruth Baseball was able to host its first 16-18 World Series in Morristown, New Jersey in 1968 and again in 1969. The 16-18 World Series was then known as the Tournament of Champions. Ted was able to get the Mennen Company involved, and it was the Mennen Field that became the first 16-18 World Series site.
Ted has served in the program as a coach, manager, League President, Sectional Commissioner, and Board Member.
Ted is a decorated war veteran having received the Silver Star, Bronze Star, Purple Heart as well as numerous other distinguished military awards that display his character.
