Roy Smalley III Giving Back to Baseball

Roy Smalley III, a thirteen-year veteran of the Major Leagues, spent his early childhood days playing pepper in major league ballparks with big league players. He was the son of Roy Smalley Jr., who played in the majors from 1948 to 1958 and later managed in the minors, and the nephew of Gene Mauch, a major league manager for 26 seasons.

Consequently, Roy III grew up with the best equipment as a Little Leaguer. Now, he is giving back to the baseball as the president of the board of directors at Pitch in for Baseball, a charity that provides baseball equipment to communities that need it. For his contributions, he will receive the William Shea Distinguished Little League Graduate Award as part of this year’s Little League World Series event.
