Dear Mr. Skutnik;

It is my pleasure to nominate Mr. Ronald Gene Whaley for the Jim Quinn Award.

He has been chosen for Offensive Player of the Year, and the Sportsmanship Award by the Oklahoma City coaches for numerous years.

He traveled the State of Oklahoma making speeches at Lions Clubs, Optomist Clubs, YMCA's, Advocates and Parents of Oklahoma Sight impaired, local television and radio.
Anyone who will listen, he will fill their ear with the sport of beep baseball. He firmly believes that the youth is the future for the sport of beep baseball.

He is willing to take extra time to teach the new players how to bat and field the ball. He is very patient and tenacious with anyone who shows an interest in the sport of beep baseball.
He keeps a diary on the computer and makes graphs both bar and pie to show how the Oklahoma team is progressing. He video tapes the games and beep baseball events.

He has served on the NBBA Board of Directors since 1992. He has served on the Hall of Fame and Public Relations committees on the National Level.
He has been on the Offensive all Star team for two years on the National level. Even though Mr. Whaley suffers with arthritic knees now he fully enjoys the sport of beep baseball.

He is a TRUE lover of the sport of beep baseball.

Respectfully submitted,
his number one fan and loving wife,
