The West Branch Valley Sports Hall of Fame has announced that Rhashan West-Bey, the Williamsport Crosscutters Director of Smiles, will be honored as the Volunteer of the Year during the annual Hall of Fame banquet at the Genetti Hotel & Suites in Williamsport, on Sunday, November 13.

West-Bey joined the Cutters during the 2003 season and has been a fixture at Historic Bowman Field ever since by volunteering at the ballpark year-round, helping the Cutters Front Office in various capacities. During the season, he stocks the souvenir store daily, greets fans at the front gate, assists with promotions and sings “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” during the 7th inning stretch. Recognized everywhere he goes, Rhashan is easily the most popular person in the ballpark, as evidenced by the pins, plush dolls and more that the team has produced in his likeness over the years including five bobbleheads. Additionally, West-Bey was featured on a baseball card produced by Topps that was inserted into packs of its Pro Debut product in 2016 that was available nationally.

“We are delighted that the West Branch Sports Hall of Fame has seen fit to honor Rhashan as the Volunteer of the Year,” said Cutters Vice President of Marketing Gabe Sinicropi. “He’s an invaluable part of our organization year-round. We invite Cutters fans to come out and support him as he receives this special honor.”
