Roland is a long-time Major League Baseball executive who served as Scouting Director of the California Angels (1961-1970), General Manager of the Chicago White Sox (1970-1985) and Baltimore Orioles (1988-1995) and Senior Vice-President of the Arizona Diamondbacks (1996-2000, 2007-present).  Hemond was awarded Major League Baseball's Executive of the Year Award three times (1972, 1983 and 1989) and in 2011 Roland became the second person to receive the Buck O'Neil Lifetime Achievement Award, presented by the Baseball Hall of Fame, which recognizes an individual who enhances baseball's positive image on society, broadens the game's appeal and whose integrity and dignity are comparable to the namesake of the award, Buck O'Neil.  Hemond was the guest speaker at the Hoop Historians 2017 Welcome Dinner.
