Horner Dennis - Player
Inducted in 1991
Horner was probably the Shore's biggest baseball fan. When not playing it, he was watching it. After attending high school in Berlin, he began playing with teams from Ocean City, Snow Hill, and Selbyville starting in 1927. Horner played all of his "organized" baseball with the Berlin Bombers, either as a player or a manager. He was truly one of the premier catchers in the leagues. He was always in demand but would not leave his beloved Berlin. After his baseball days, Horner continued playing softball with the same enthusiasm he had dedicated to baseball.
He was in the poultry and seed business in Berlin for 30 years, and also managed the Worcester Fertilizer Co. for many years, and later kept busy as groundskeeper for the Jolly Rogers Amusement Park in Ocean City, and when he died at age of 74, was owed a paycheck.
Horner was married to Turner H. Dennis and had two children.
