NABF Scholarships

The National Amateur Baseball Federation has a history of helping sandlot baseball to grow.

The organization was brought into existence in 1914. Since then, in times of peace and prosperity, despite wars and recessions, there always has been the year-after-year on-field excitement of the NABF National Tournaments.

In 1984, an NABF Scholarship Fund was established and the first scholarship was presented in 1985. Named after the NABF executive director emeritus of the NABF and his wife, the Ronald and Irene McMinn Scholarship is an annual Award. In 1988, Mr. McMinn, in memory of his late wife Irene, generously endowed the fund so that several NABF scholarship awards could be made each year.

In 2000 Edward "Red" Carrington, past President of NABF and long time President of Fort Wayne Baseball Federation, bequeathed a generous scholarship fund in memory of both him and his wife Germaine. Red Carrington had a remarkable, durable and effective relationship with the NABF which he joined after the conclusion of World War I. The Germaine and Edward "Red" Carrington Fund and the McMinn Fund are the basis for the overall NABF Scholarship program.

To be eligible for a NABF scholarship, applicants must be enrolled in an accredited college or university and be in good standing. The applicant must also be a current participant in a league properly sanctioned and sponsored by a National Amateur Baseball Federation member association.

Self-nominated candidate(s) are not eligible for this scholarship award.

Selection of the award winner will be made by the federation’s scholarship awards committee. It will be based on grades, financial need, and previous awards to candidates from a sponsoring association.
