Steve Bennion(’94), Kevin Gall(’93) and Jeff Gould(’92), along with Steve Eamon(’92), have all been inducted to the North Dakota Amateur Baseball Inc., Hall of Fame

“Those guys are very deserving to get in there,” said Tom Gould, NDABI President. “They’ve been there from the beginning doing a lot of good things on the field, and doing a lot off the field to keep things alive.”

All four players remain active in amateur ball, but in their heyday were among the top players around.

Bennion, still slugging homers to this day for the Jamestown Tarno Townies, ranks first in Merchants’ history in long balls (101) and RBIs (436). The sweet-swinging lefties’ career batting average is .389.

Gall ranks in the top 10 in virtually every major offensive category. The University of Jamestown head softball coach is No. 2 in hits (505) and at bats (1,446) and fourth in RBIs (345).

Gall is a fixture at Jack Brown Stadium and Trapper Field, the softball field in Jamestown which he literally helped build and handles much of the upkeep.

Jeff Gould ranks second in runs (457) and stolen bases (87) and is the all-time leader in walks (389) for the Merchants. Stats are no measure of his true impact on amateur baseball, or his family’s impact, for that matter. Without Jeff and Tom Gould, along with Jeff’s uncle Richard “R.D.” Brown, amateur baseball would likely not exist in North Dakota, or at least not in the stable state it does.

Eamon played his early amateur days with the Jamestown College Eagles. After one year with the Merchants, Eamon started his successful 12-year run with the Jamestown Elks, playing on state championship teams in 1994, ’96, ’97, ’98, ’99 and 2004. Eamon continues to play for the Tarno Townies, last season’s Class A state champs.
