George Fellers was one of the three original inductees to the Kansas Babe Ruth Hall of Fame. Fellers was born in Neodesha, but came to live in McPherson with his aunt and uncle when he was four. He graduated from McPherson High School in 1933.
Fellers went to work for Boeing in Wichita in 1943 and worked with youths as a scoutmaster. He started attending Babe Ruth League meetings in 1950 while looking for a good program for his scouts to participate in. Babe Ruth Baseball began in Kansas in 1955 with Fellers as its first State Director. Fellers was also a Regional Director in 1956 and served as Secretary/Treasurer for 16 of the 22 years he was associated with Babe Ruth.
