Noncompetitor Honors

Many non athletes usually defined as volunteers have been and are the backbone of the NBBA. Without their help and many varied contributions, the game of Beep Baseball and the NBBA would not be possible. There are many unsung heroes that deserve recognition who may never receive the NBBA's highest honor, the Jim Quinn Award. However they deserve Hall of Fame recognition. This would include those who gave so much to the game prior to the inception of the Jim Quinn Award.

Non competitor categories are to be as follows.

Executives - officers and board members.
Volunteers - umpires, scorekeepers, base operators, drivers, Technicians (invented, make and upkeep the bases balls etc), coaches, and others who help so much.

The Honor Roll of Outstanding Contributors.

  • All Honor Roll members will remain eligible for the Jim Quinn Award at a later date.
  • After 3 years any Jim Quinn Award nominee remaining on file with The Jim Quinn committee who has not received the Jim Quinn award will be submitted to the Hall of Fame committee for processing into the Outstanding Contributors Honor Roll section of the Hall of Fame. the member will also remain on file with the Jim Quinn committee for future consideration for Jim Quinn Award election. At such time a member receives the Quinn Award she/he will be transfered from the Honor roll to the Jim Quinn Award section of the Hall of Fame.
  • Any nominations received by the hall of fame committee for Honor Roll (non athlete) will be shared with the Jim Quinn committee for future Jim Quinn Award consideration.
