Baseball Hall of Fame Sportswriter. Known as "the Dean" of baseball press boxes, he chronicled the Chicago White Sox and Cubs for over four decades. A columnist at the Chicago "Sun-Times" and the "Tribune" from 1957 to 1999, he was also the author of six books, including the classic "No Cheering in the Press Box," an oral history of baseball as recounted by 24 sportswriter legends. In 1966, he was responsible for the institution of the "save" rule which acknowledges relief pitching as a Baseball Major League statistic. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1989 and Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig, made him baseball's first official historian in 1999. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
