Guy Jackson

1997

Babe Ruth League President/CEO Steven Tellefsen said, "Guy W. Jackson has been involved with our program for over 33 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."

Guy coached a Junior and Senior Babe Ruth team, starting in 1961, for 17 years. He was very active in his local Boonville Babe Ruth Program. In 1970, when the Boonville Lions Club dropped their support of the Babe Ruth program, Guy led a group of local residents that re-organized the program so that it would be operated by volunteers, remaining self supporting. Jackson was a large force in setting up the Senior Babe Ruth program by expanding the number of teams from one to four so that more kids would have an opportunity to continue their baseball careers. He convinced a local Little League to affiliate with Bambino Baseball, and organized two Midwest Plains Regional tournaments.

Guy Jackson, like many other Hall of Famers, went from a District 2 Commissioner, to State Commissioner, to Assistant Regional Commissioner through the 70's and 80's.

One of his most memorable experiences with Babe Ruth Baseball was during his coaching years. He helped coach in a 1964 team that won the 13-15 Year Old Midwest Plains Regional tournament, and took 5th place in the World Series in Woodland, CA, something others can only dream of.
