Little League International mourns the passing Little League Baseball World Series “Uncle” Paul Fullmer. He was 87.



A volunteer Little League Baseball World Series team host or “Uncle” for nearly 50 years, Mr. Fullmer also was active in his South Williamsport, Pa., community, serving as the organizer of the Duboistown Youth Center and enjoyed operating the scoreboard at South Williamsport High School football games.

Mr. Fullmer was a 1943 graduate of South Williamsport High School. A veteran of World War II, he served as a combat infantryman, receiving numerous decorations and commendations, including the Bronze Star.

In recent years, Mr. Fullmer served as an auxiliary team host, assisting where needed with the annual Little League Baseball World Series held annually in Williamsport, Pa. Mr. Fullmer was among the most tenured of team hosts, with nearly five decades of volunteer service to the teams competing for the championship of Little League Baseball.

Mr. Fullmer was preceded in death by his wife of 64 years, Miriam; his sister, Betty; and his daughter, Carol. He is survived by two daughters, Linda and Cathy; four grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
