Hill Carrow has been inducted into the George Whitfield Baseball Clinic Hall of Fame, according to Sports Travel Magazine.

The sports tourism executive was recognized for his more than 30 years of leadership within the industry.

In 2003, Hill was responsible for recruiting USA Baseball, the national governing body for amateur baseball, from Arizona to North Carolina. Over the following four years, he led the development of the USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, North Carolina.

Hill is also the founder of the National Association of Sports Commissions (NASC) and the North Carolina Sports Association (NCSA).

The induction ceremony took place in January at Wayne Community College in Goldsboro. Other North Carolinian hall of famers include Steve Vacendak, Sylvia Hatchell, and Phil Ford.

Hill received his bachelor’s in English from Carolina and a JD degree from Columbia Law School. He resides in Cary with his wife, Sheri-Lyn Lockwood.
