Paul Jensen wins AFL Roland Hemond Award

From on November 14, 2012:

Arizona Fall League communications head Paul Jensen is the recipient of the Arizona Fall League’s 2012 Roland Hemond Award.

The award is presented annually to recognize baseball executives who have provided outstanding service to professional baseball and served the Arizona Fall League in a key leadership capacity. Jensen will receive the award during pre-game ceremonies at tonight’s 6:35 p.m. game between the Mesa Solar Sox and Scottsdale Scorpions at Scottsdale Stadium.

Baseball ambassador Hemond, the architect of the Arizona Fall League who currently serves the Arizona Diamondbacks as special assistant to the president and chief executive officer, was general manager of the Chicago White Sox when Jensen broke into baseball in 1984 as the White Sox public relations director.


The Arizona Fall League Hemond Award is one of four awards in his name. The others are the White Sox Roland Hemond Award, the Baseball America Award and the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) Award.
