Vince McNamara


McNamara was named president of the New York-Penn League in 1948 and served as head of the loop for 37 years. At the time he took over the presidency, the league, like many other small leagues around the country, was beset with a host of problems. His leadership helped increase attendance and stabilize the league as a whole. In 1972, the National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues paid tribute to McNamara for his years of service by saluting him as the "King of Baseball." One of the league's 3 divisions is named in his honor as is the award for the Outstanding Club in the NYPL.
