Ron Shelton - 2002 Honoree


Ron Shelton '63, who was a two-sport athlete at SBHS, has achieved acclaim as the director of several major motion pictures, particularly Bull Durham, which drew upon Shelton's career in baseball's minor leagues. A lifelong fan of Mathews, Shelton composed a wonderful memorial to Mathews for the Los Angeles Times, and has excelled at dramatizing sports and sport figures (Ty Cobb) as complex ingredients in any understanding of our culture.
