He served as Little League President from 1973 to 1994, and was appointed Chief Executive Officer in 1983. He was the second full-time Little League President in the history of the organization. From 1994 to 2001, Dr. Hale served as special advisor to current President and CEO, Stephen D. Keener.

Prior to joining Little League, Dr. Hale was an Associate Professor of Physiology at Springfield (Mass.) College. Earning degrees from Colgate University, Springfield College and New York University, he is originally from Hardy, Neb.

As Little League President, he oversaw vast expansion of the Little League program domestically and abroad, the creation of Little League Softball® and the Little League Challenger Division®, and provided millions of children the opportunity to play baseball and softball.
