Clem Roy

Induction Class Of 2022

Back To Inductee List

Born in Worcester, MA in 1915, he was the assistant baseball coach at Bristol High under Thomas R. Monahan during the 1950’s.

He became the first varsity baseball coach at Bristol Eastern when it opened in 1959. During his tenure, the Lancers captured three CCIL titles, and he was later recognized for his work by the CT Interscholastic Athletic Coaches association.

Many of his players went on to play in college and on minor league teams. Tom Shopay reached the majors with the N.Y. Yankees and Baltimore Orioles.  Some of his players have been inducted into the BSHOF, as well as other similar organizations.

Not only a baseball mentor, he also served the youth of Bristol as a referee and umpire at the elementary school level, and that only strengthened the play of growing baseball participants in Bristol.

He also worked summer camps with sports icons and had a way of making non-athletic students with disabilities feel accepted. The baseball field at Bristol Eastern is named in his honor. 

Nancy Roy accepted for her father Clem Roy.
