Roland Hemond of the Chicago White Sox was honored by Minor League Baseball as the 2001 "King of Baseball" at the annual banquet Sunday, Dec. 16, at the Baseball Winter Meetings.

The "King of Baseball" is a long-standing tradition in which Minor League Baseball salutes a veteran from the world of professional baseball for long-time dedication and service to the game.

Hemond, who is presently the executive advisor to White Sox General Manager Ken Williams, has been in professional baseball for more than 50 years, beginning with the Hartford team in the Eastern League in 1951. He has been a Major League executive with seven different teams and was named Major League Executive of the Year three times.
