George Estock

Class of


George, a native of New Jersey,  came to Delaware in 1945 to pitch for the Wilmington Blue Rocks. His 22 wins that year set an Interstate League record. Estock moved up to the major leagues
in 1951 after six years in the minors. He was a reliever for the 1951 Boston Braves appearing in 37 games. In those 37 games Estock worked 60 innings, had a 4.33 ERA and earned three saves. In his
only start he pitched well but lost 3-0 when Pittsburgh’s Cliff Chambers pitched a no-hitter. George, after his baseball career, was a Delaware high school basketball official for 10 years and
baseball umpire for 20 years. He was inducted into the Delaware baseball Hall of Fame in 1999.



Every inductee into the Delaware Sports Hall of Fame since our inaugural year in 1976 is represented on our website. Honoring the athletic excellence of these men and women is an integral part of Delaware sports history.


From our annual Delaware Sports Hall of Fame induction gala in May, celebrations of Black History Month and Women in Sports Month, as well as individual sports highlights, there is something for every sports fan.


A visit to the museum will take you back over 100 years of sports in Delaware, from the Lenni Lenape Indians right up to today. Experience memorabilia, artifacts, and the stories of Delaware legends.
