A collaborative effort of a number of local baseball enthusiasts resulted in the formation of this permanent endowment honoring Claude “Sarge” Maynard, longtime supporter of the Babe Ruth program. Unused funds raised years ago by the Beckley Tri-County Pro Baseball Association to bring pro baseball to Beckley had been turned over to the WV Unclaimed Property office. Jack Roop and Bill Wooton contacted Norman Bias, the last president of the association, and arranged to have the money released to create a fund for the benefit of the local Babe Ruth League.
