Updated Baseball Fever Policy

Baseball Fever Policy

I. Purpose of this announcement:

This announcement describes the policies pertaining to the operation of Baseball Fever.

Baseball Fever is a moderated baseball message board which encourages and facilitates research and information exchange among fans of our national pastime. The intent of the Baseball Fever Policy is to ensure that Baseball Fever remains an extremely high quality, extremely low "noise" environment.

Baseball Fever is administrated by three principal administrators:
webmaster - Baseball Fever Owner
The Commissioner - Baseball Fever Administrator
Macker - Baseball Fever Administrator

And a group of forum specific super moderators. The role of the moderator is to keep Baseball Fever smoothly and to screen posts for compliance with our policy. The moderators are ALL volunteer positions, so please be patient and understanding of any delays you might experience in correspondence.

II. Comments about our policy:

Any suggestions on this policy may be made directly to the webmaster.

III. Acknowledgments:

This document was based on a similar policy used by SABR.

IV. Requirements for participation on Baseball Fever:

Participation on Baseball Fever is available to all baseball fans with a valid email address, as verified by the forum's automated system, which then in turn creates a single validated account. Multiple accounts by a single user are prohibited.

By registering, you agree to adhere to the policies outlined in this document and to conduct yourself accordingly. Abuse of the forum, by repeated failure to abide by these policies, will result in your access being blocked to the forum entirely.

V. Baseball Fever Netiquette:

Participants at Baseball Fever are required to adhere to these principles, which are outlined in this section.
a. All posts to Baseball Fever should be written in clear, concise English, with proper grammar and accurate spelling. The use of abbreviations should be kept to a minimum; when abbreviation is necessary, they should be either well-known (such as etc.), or explained on their first use in your post.

b. Conciseness is a key attribute of a good post.

c. Quote only the portion of a post to which you are responding.

d. Standard capitalization and punctuation make a large difference in the readability of a post. TYPING IN ALL CAPITALS is considered to be "shouting"; it is a good practice to limit use of all capitals to words which you wish to emphasize.

e. It is our policy NOT to transmit any defamatory or illegal materials.

f. Personal attacks of any type against Baseball Fever readers will not be tolerated. In these instances the post will be copied by a moderator and/or administrator, deleted from the site, then sent to the member who made the personal attack via a Private Message (PM) along with a single warning. Members who choose to not listen and continue personal attacks will be banned from the site.

g. It is important to remember that many contextual clues available in face-to-face discussion, such as tone of voice and facial expression, are lost in the electronic forum. As a poster, try to be alert for phrasing that might be misinterpreted by your audience to be offensive; as a reader, remember to give the benefit of the doubt and not to take umbrage too easily. There are many instances in which a particular choice of words or phrasing can come across as being a personal attack where none was intended.

h. The netiquette described above (a-g) often uses the term "posts", but applies equally to Private Messages.

VI. Baseball Fever User Signature Policy

A signature is a piece of text that some members may care to have inserted at the end of ALL of their posts, a little like the closing of a letter. You can set and / or change your signature by editing your profile in the UserCP. Since it is visible on ALL your posts, the following policy must be adhered to:

Signature Composition
Font size limit: No larger than size 2 (This policy is a size 2)
Style: Bold and italics are permissible
Character limit: No more than 500 total characters
Lines: No more than 4 lines
Colors: Most colors are permissible, but those which are hard to discern against the gray background (yellow, white, pale gray) should be avoided
Images/Graphics: Allowed, but nothing larger than 20k and Content rules must be followed

Signature Content
No advertising is permitted
Nothing political or religious
Nothing obscene, vulgar, defamatory or derogatory
Links to personal blogs/websites are permissible - with the webmaster's written consent
A Link to your Baseball Fever Blog does not require written consent and is recommended
Quotes must be attributed. Non-baseball quotes are permissible as long as they are not religious or political

Please adhere to these rules when you create your signature. Failure to do so will result in a request to comply by a moderator. If you do not comply within a reasonable amount of time, the signature will be removed and / or edited by an Administrator. Baseball Fever reserves the right to edit and / or remove any or all of your signature line at any time without contacting the account holder.

VII. Appropriate and inappropriate topics for Baseball Fever:

Most concisely, the test for whether a post is appropriate for Baseball Fever is: "Does this message discuss our national pastime in an interesting manner?" This post can be direct or indirect: posing a question, asking for assistance, providing raw data or citations, or discussing and constructively critiquing existing posts. In general, a broad interpretation of "baseball related" is used.

Baseball Fever is not a promotional environment. Advertising of products, web sites, etc., whether for profit or not-for-profit, is not permitted. At the webmaster's discretion, brief one-time announcements for products or services of legitimate baseball interest and usefulness may be allowed. If advertising is posted to the site it will be copied by a moderator and/or administrator, deleted from the site, then sent to the member who made the post via a Private Message (PM) along with a single warning. Members who choose to not listen and continue advertising will be banned from the site. If the advertising is spam-related, pornography-based, or a "visit-my-site" type post / private message, no warning at all will be provided, and the member will be banned immediately without a warning.

It is considered appropriate to post a URL to a page which specifically and directly answers a question posted on the list (for example, it would be permissible to post a link to a page containing home-road splits, even on a site which has advertising or other commercial content; however, it would not be appropriate to post the URL of the main page of the site). The site reserves the right to limit the frequency of such announcements by any individual or group.

In keeping with our test for a proper topic, posting to Baseball Fever should be treated as if you truly do care. This includes posting information that is, to the best of your knowledge, complete and accurate at the time you post. Any errors or ambiguities you catch later should be acknowledged and corrected in the thread, since Baseball Fever is sometimes considered to be a valuable reference for research information.

VIII. Role of the moderator:

When a post is submitted to Baseball Fever, it is forwarded by the server automatically and seen immediately. The moderator may:
a. Leave the thread exactly like it was submitted. This is the case 95% of the time.

b. Immediately delete the thread as inappropriate for Baseball Fever. Examples include advertising, personal attacks, or spam. This is the case 1% of the time.

c. Move the thread. If a member makes a post about the Marlins in the Yankees forum it will be moved to the appropriate forum. This is the case 3% of the time.

d. Edit the message due to an inappropriate item. This is the case 1% of the time. There have been new users who will make a wonderful post, then add to their signature line (where your name / handle appears) a tagline that is a pure advertisement. This tagline will be removed, a note will be left in the message so he/she is aware of the edit, and personal contact will be made to the poster telling them what has been edited and what actions need to be taken to prevent further edits.

The moderators perform no checks on posts to verify factual or logical accuracy. While he/she may point out gross errors in factual data in replies to the thread, the moderator does not act as an "accuracy" editor. Also moderation is not a vehicle for censorship of individuals and/or opinions, and the moderator's decisions should not be taken personally.

IX. Legal aspects of participation in Baseball Fever:

By submitting a post to Baseball Fever, you grant Baseball Fever permission to distribute your message to the forum. Other rights pertaining to the post remain with the ORIGINAL author, and you may not redistribute or retransmit any posts by any others, in whole or in part, without the express consent of the original author.

The messages appearing on Baseball Fever contain the opinions and views of their respective authors and are not necessarily those of Baseball Fever, or of the Baseball Almanac family of sites.

Sincerely,

Sean Holtz, Webmaster of Baseball Almanac & Baseball Fever

    Meet The Sports Writers

    --------------------------------------------MEET THE SPORTS WRITERS

    Since the 1980's I've conducted this project on sports writers. I presently have over 2,300 of them, and have presented about 750 of them here (32%).

    I have endeavored to create this very specialized photo tribute to the sports writer. I have found photos for the vast, over-whelming majority of them. But I still lack photos for 9 of the older writers, including: Michael J. Kelly, Lewis B. Meacham, David Litton Reid, George Leonard Moreland, Henry L. Farrell, Alfred Wright, George Young and James Whitfield. I also lack photos for 4 modern sports writers. Vern Plagenhoef, Harry Dayton & Ed Linn. It would be greatly appreciated if any photos could be found for any of these good men.

    I have not strictly limited this photo archive to sports writers. I have also included sports editors and sometimes managing editors. But I have went even further. In order to give this archive enhanced, historical relevance, I have included William Hearst, Arthur Brisbane, Henry Mencken and Joseph Pulitzer.

    In order to go the extra mile to give this archive enhanced, historical value, I have also included a few literary writers who had happened to write occasionally about sports. They include: Ruth McKenney, Cornelia Skinner, Clara Margery Sharp, William Saroyan (pen name Sirak Garoyan), Philip Wylie, Nelson Bond, Hector Munro (pen name, Saki), Joseph Mitchell, Katharine Brush, Arthur Cheney Train, Robert Louis Fontaine, Corey Ford (pen name, John Riddle).

    In order to give this archive enhanced historical relevance, I have included 42 managing editors of newspapers. Carr Van Anda (New York Times, 1904-1932), Oliver Bovard (St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 1910-1938), Alfred Kirchhofer (Buffalo Evening News, 1927-1956), Edwin James (New York Times, 1932-1951), Orville Shelton, Fresno Bee (?-1971), Walter Howey (Chicago Herald-Examiner, 1917-1954), Arthur Gelb (New York Times, 1967-1990), Abraham Rosenthal (New York Times, 1963-1988), Joe McGee (Log Cabin Democrat, 1920's-1984), Barney Kilgore (Wall Street Journal, 1941-1967), Clift Garboden (Boston Phoenix), Norman Isaacs (Louisville Times/Louisville Courier), John Popham (New York Times, 1933-1958), Marc Laguerre (Sports Illustrated, 1960-1974), Hugh Fogarty (Omah World-Herald, 1944-1971), Robert Douglas (Arkansas Gazette, 1948-1981), Tom Matthews (Time Magazine, 1929-1953), David Golding (Army Stars and Stripes), Robin Walsh (Belfast Telegraph), Howard Simons (Washington Post, 1966-1984), Henry Justin Smith (Chicago Daily News, 1901-1936), Rollo Ogden (New York Post/New York Times, 1891-1937), Ralph Ingersoll (New Yorker/Time, 1925-1940), Paul Steiger (Wall Street Journal, 1991-2007), Ken Wells (Wall Street Journal, 1982-2006), Jacob Lewis (New Yorker), Pierre Berton (Canadian Macleans, 1947-1957), Ben Bradlee (Washington Post, 1965-2012), Susan Cuesta (Cigar City Magazine), Frank McCulloch (Time-Life), Frank Murphy (Worcester Telegram, 1945-1966), Gene Roberts (New York Times, 1965-1972, Philadelphia Inquirer, 1972-1990), Walter M. Harrison (Oklahoman editor), John O'Connell (Bangor Daily News, 1928-1954), Bob Brooks (Raleigh News and Observer, 1972-1986), Clark Davey (Canadian editor), Joseph Donlan (London Sun, 1971-?), Pete Weitzel (Miami Herald, 1965-1995), Pete Lyons (Autosport), Harry Hindmarsh (Toronto Daily Star, 1912-1956), William Chon (New Yorker, 1952-1987), John Jones (Financial Times, 1976-?)

    In order to give this archive even more historical relevance, I have included 22 city editors of newspapers. Charles Chapin (New York Times, 1898-1918), Earl Walker (New York Herald-Tribune, 1926-1935), Arthur Stokes (San Jose Mercury News), Ben Hitt (San Jose Mercury News, 1945-1979), Agness Underwood (Los Angeles Evening Herald-Express, 1947-1968), William Shelton (Arkansas Gazette, 1952-1991), Harry Romanoff (Chicago Herald & Examiner), Albert Johnson (Providence Journal, 1946-1986), Ed Young (Baltimore Sun, 1935-1954; Providence Journal-Bulletin, 1954-?), Kalil Ayoob (Bangor Daily Commercial, 1937-1990), Frank Bolden (Pittsburgh Courier), Earl Selby (Philadelphia Bulletin, 1959-1964), Tom Caton (Los Angeles Herald-Express;Los Angeles Herald-Examiner, 1948-1975), Harvey Schwandner (Milwaukee Journal/Milwaukee Sentinel, 1946-1975), Matthew Paul (Bangor Daily News), Sir Patrick Sergeant, Harry Nichols (New York Daily News, 1922-1969), Howard Ziff (Chicago Daily News), Harllee Branch (Atlanta Journal), Jimmy Carnahan (Nashville Tennessean, 1968-1993), Bob Strebeigh (San Francisco Chronicle), Al Reck (Oakland Tribune, 1936-1958).

    It is my fervent hope that this photo tribute archive to our sports writers brings joy and happiness to their many readers and their descended families. I welcome any contributions, photos, information, etc.
    -------------------------------------
    About this thread. Evolution of a project. I thought I'd just jot down a couple of notes to whoever might be following this thread, to let them know how it came about.

    At the end of the day, I hope to be remembered for my work on Ty Cobb, baseball photos and sports writers. This particular thread was started February 14, 2007. So, I'm into my 5.5 year milepost on working on this project, almost on a daily basis. It actually started long before 2007. This sport writers project began in the 1990's, and came out of my Ty Cobb research. I was trying to build a 'jury' of Ty's peers to judge whether or not Ty was better than Babe Ruth.

    So I began to build up a consensus of professional observers who had seen both play and were paid to watch baseball. Not just normal fans, but more critical, skeptical observers, with no reason for partiality. That is how this project first began. I wrote the lists on large, yellow lined paper and had to restart a lot when I found new people. Finally, when I got my first computer in October, 2000. I could save tons of time by creating an Excel file and simply insert the new entries. Made my life SOOO much easier and simpler.

    I originally tried to find the most knowledgeable, famous sports writers from 1906 to 1930, in order to support the Cobb/Ruth issue. But later came to drop that and make the sports writers a project independent and on its own. This photo tribute is limited by my desire to have photos. My online sports writers index is around 3,000 and comes from Sporting News obituaries.

    In this project, I have went through many phases. As my ability to conduct online searches improved, I was able to find more and more dates of birth and death. I added family genealogy. I learned to photoshop and add sepia tone and tint faces with flesh-colored tone. I added the covers of their books. I found many new photos on Ebay. I found photo-bucket and learned to convert their photos into photo-bucket code, and spare fever all that bandwidth.

    The quality of research is not based only on searching skills, although that has a lot to do with it. A researcher is only as good as their tools. But it takes a lot of time, too. Not just a month of inspiration but a career of it. A project that takes 10 years will be more valuable than one of 1 year. This is exactly how I built my Ty Cobb Consensus. Took daily searches over many, many years. Just wanted to share some random thoughts with the house this morning. This thread might be in its 5th year online, but the project is around its 20th year. Just so you know.

    John Robertson

    Born: March 12, 1934, Winnipeg, Canada
    Died: January 25, 2014, Gimli, Manitoba, Canada

    Canadian sports writer;
    Attended St. Ignatius Elementary School
    Attended St. Paul's HS

    Father: Peter; Mother: Margaret;

    Wikipedia
    John Robertson (March 12, 1934 - January 25, 2014) was a Canadian media personality.
    A good amateur baseball pitcher, Robertson had a tryout in 1950 with Major League Baseball's Washington Senators. When his playing days ended, he would stay around the game as a reporter, in later years writing newspaper columns on the Montreal Expos and Toronto Blue Jays. In 1998, he was inducted in the Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame.

    Journalism/Broadcasting career:
    1956-1958 : Winnipeg Free Press/Regina Leader-Post, Winnipeg, Manitoba/Regina, Saskatchewan
    1958-1963 : Winnipeg Tribune, Winnipeg, Manitoba
    1963-1966 : "Regina Leader-Post", Regina, Saskatchewan
    1966-1968 : "Toronto Telegram" Toronto, Ontario
    1968-1974 : Montreal Star, Montreal, Quebec
    1974-1977 : CFCF and CJAD radio stations, Montreal, Quebec
    1977-1982 : CBC, Winnipeg, Manitoba
    1982-1986 : Toronto Sun, Toronto, Ontario
    1986-1989 : Toronto Star,Toronto, Ontario

    Robertson worked as a sports reporter and columnist at the Regina Leader-Post in the early 1960s and grew to love the Saskatchewan Roughriders CFL football team over his hometown Winnipeg Blue Bombers. When the Roughriders were close to bankruptcy during a tragic 1979 season, Robertson flew in from Winnipeg (where he now worked for CBC Television) at his own expense to help out coach Ronnie Lancaster. The two men were flown around Saskatchewan in a small plane to drum up ticket sales for the final game of the 1979 season. Taylor Field was full to capacity for that game and the efforts of Lancaster and Robertson managed to save the football team from certain extinction. Around the same time in November 1979, in his regular back page column for Maclean's magazine, Robertson coined the term “Rider Pride" when he wrote about his experiences and his feeling that the Roughriders had the best fans in the CFL. Robertson never received a cent from the Saskatchewan Roughriders franchise for his efforts nor an acknowledgement that the term "Rider Pride," used extensively by the Saskatchewan Roughriders CFL franchise in their marketing and annual multi-million dollar merchandise sales, was coined by journalist John Robertson.

    The founder of the Manitoba Marathon, over the years Robertson also has been involved in charitable causes for the Winnipeg Harvest Food Bank, Gimli Food Bank and the Toronto Food Bank.

    Robertson was a 24Hours interviewer on CBWT in Winnipeg during the years September 1977 till September 1981. In 1981 he did a feature documentary on Terry Fox for 24Hours. He also wrote a twice-weekly sports column for the Winnipeg Free Press in 1978, and was considered at the time one of Canada's best sports writers. John resigned from 24Hours to run as a Progressive Conservative in the provincial riding of St. Vital in the 1981 election. After not winning that seat he joined the Winnipeg Sun where he wrote a regular sports column.

    John wrote three books: High Times with Stewart MacPherson (ISBN 0-9195-7618-4), Those Amazing Jays (ISBN 0-9199-5916-4), and "Rusty Staub of the Montreal Expos" (ISBN 013784462X) (ISBN 978-0137844623)
    In 1990 Robertson retired to Winnipeg Beach, Manitoba. He died January 25, 2014 in Gimli, Manitoba.

    Richard Sidney Heller--- AKA Dick Heller

    Born: January 10, 1938, Washington, DC
    Died: March 20, 2014, age 76,---d. of lung cancer, at a hospital in Silver Spring, MD.

    Washington, DC sports writer;

    Dick Heller, longtime D.C. sportswriter, dies at 76, By Matt Schudel,

    Dick Heller, who wrote about Washington’s sports teams for more than half a century and who, in the 1970s, was a key figure in a landmark court decision concerning the freedom of the press, died March 20 at a hospital in Silver Spring, Md. He was 76.

    He had lung cancer, his son Patrick Heller said.

    Mr. Heller was a native Washingtonian whose childhood was spent cheering for the city’s sports stars of the 1940s and ’50s, including Sammy Baugh of the Redskins and Mickey Vernon of the Senators. By then, both teams’ glory years were long past, and Mr. Heller learned to accept losing. But one loss he never got over came in 1971, when the Senators left Washington to become the Texas Rangers.

    As a columnist for the Washington Star and later for the Washington Times, Mr. Heller often called for major league baseball to return to the capital. His wish finally came true in 2005, when the Montreal Expos moved to Washington and were renamed the Nationals.

    “I saw a baseball team representing Washington take the field,” Mr. Heller wrote in the Washington Times, after the National’s first home game at RFK Stadium in April 2005. “I saw a throng of 45,000 gathered in a 44-year-old stadium to welcome the national pastime back to the nation’s capital after 34 years.

    “I saw the president of the United States throw out the first ball, and I forgave him for being a former majority owner of the Rangers — the franchise Bob Short swiped from us and plunked down in the unlikely hamlet of Arlington, Texas, in the awful autumn of 1971.

    “I saw all this, and I still don’t believe it.”

    Baseball was always Mr. Heller’s first sporting love, but he covered many other athletic endeavors throughout his career, including high school sports, boxing, football, tennis, horse racing and college basketball.

    In 1977, when the University of Maryland had one of the top men’s basketball teams in the country, The Washington Post published a story highlighting the players’ dismal academic records. Mr. Heller, then a columnist at the Star, went a step further, publishing the names of four players, with their photographs prominently displayed.

    “The University of Maryland’s basketball program is in danger of collapse because of poor schoolwork,” Mr. Heller wrote. “The Star has learned that four of the eight returning players . . . are on academic probation and in danger of flunking.”

    He named two others who had previously been on probation.

    The university’s student newspaper, the Diamondback, published the players’ grade-point averages. Six members of the team sued Mr. Heller and the Star, as well as the Diamondback, for invasion of privacy, publishing confidential university records and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The players asked for $72 million in damages.

    In 1979, the Maryland Court of Special Appeals upheld a lower-court decision and ruled in the papers’ favor in the case, known as Bilney v. Evening Star.

    The players “achieved the status of public figures solely by virtue of their membership on the University basketball team,” the court ruled. “Their possible exclusion from the team — whether for academic or any other reason — was therefore a matter of legitimate public interest.”

    The decision continued: “Having sought and basked in the limelight, by virtue of their membership on the team, appellants [i.e., the players] will not be heard to complain when the light focuses on their potentially imminent withdrawal from the team.”

    Bilney v. Evening Star remains an important case in First Amendment law and has been cited in legal proceedings, textbooks and courses in media law.

    Richard Sidney Heller was born Jan. 10, 1938, in Washington. His father worked in marketing, and his mother was a nurse.

    Mr. Heller began writing about sports while attending Woodward Prep, a now-defunct private school in the District, and he worked in his teens as an assistant to Senators announcer Bob Wolff. Mr. Heller studied briefly at American University before taking newspaper jobs at the Alexandria Gazette and the Star, where he worked until the paper folded in 1981.

    “Dick was kind of a mentor to the younger guys,” said Tim Kurkjian, an ESPN baseball writer and broadcaster who began his career at the Star. “He really took time to help us learn to write. I cannot stress enough how helpful he was and how patient he was with us.”

    Mr. Heller was a columnist for the Miami Herald for several years before returning to Washington in 1986 to work for the Times.

    Survivors include his wife of 42 years, Kathleen O’Reilly Heller of Silver Spring; three children, Chris Heller and Patrick Heller, both of Brooklyn, and Michael Heller of Somerville, Mass.; and two grandchildren.

    In later years, Mr. Heller often wrote columns about sports history. On Sept. 21, 2011, the 50th anniversary of the final baseball game at Washington’s old Griffith Stadium, he noted that a paltry crowd of 1,498 came out to see the expansion Senators play the Minnesota Twins — the franchise that had been the original Senators before departing after the 1960 season.

    The Senators lost, of course, 6-3.

    “Griffith’s death knell tolled silently,” Mr. Heller wrote, recalling that last game. “It was a mournful day for those of us who practically grew up there. Sure, Griffith was a dump, but it was our dump.

    “We remembered riding to the park and feeling the heart beat faster when the streetcar turned onto Florida Avenue and the stadium’s light towers loomed in the distance. We remembered the smell of bread baking in the Wonder Bread plant nearby. . . . We remembered the feel of 10-cent cardboard scorecards and the stubby pencils that came with them.

    “Memories like those last a lifetime.”

    Barry D. Byers

    Born: March 27, 1952, Abbeville, SC
    Died: October 18, 2013, Rock Hill, SC, age 61,---d. cancer

    Rock Hill (SC) sports writer;
    Graduated Rock Hill HS (Rock Hill, SC)
    Rock Hill Herald (Rock Hill, SC), sports writer, 1989 -

    Father: Ernest Byers; Mother: Edith H.; Wife: Dawn; Daugher: April D.; Daughter: Carly B. Moxley; Daughter: Becky D.;

    Football died a little bit Friday.

    Not the game. The game marched on.

    Not the lights. The lights turned on.

    But what people know about high school football in Rock Hill – and a lot of other places, too, after reading about it in The Herald – lost a little bit of something.

    Because Barry Byers, who for 30 years had the only job he ever wanted – covering high school football in a place that loves the sport – died Friday.

    Barry Byers, 61, died on a football Friday in October.

    Nobody should die. Especially not from cancer after so much suffering.

    But if everybody has to go, they should go on a day that was the same canvas on which a life was painted. Barry Byers lived for the football game between tough and hard-nosed teams on a Friday night in the city of Rock Hill. He loved telling The Herald’s readers about the games, the players and the coaches.

    Byers was nicknamed “Mr. Football” because plainly he was.

    Barely over 5-foot-3, stout to the point of being burly as an iron stove, for three decades Byers thrust himself squarely in the middle of any and all high school sports stories in York County.

    Byers’ official title was assistant sports editor. But he was a high school writer, football especially, first and foremost.

    Before the Rock Hill High Bearcats took on South Pointe Friday night District 3 Stadium, everything stopped for a minute. The public address announcer told people that Barry, who was “dedicated in promoting high school athletics” like maybe no other, was gone.

    The players were lined up on the hash marks.

    “What always mattered to Barry was the players,” said Joe Montgomery, the Rock Hill coach. “He cared about them.”

    A stadium of fans fell to silence.

    “Barry was great at what he did because he loved what he did,” said Debbie Abels, publisher of The Herald. “He wasn’t just about sports. He was about sports in this community. He played on the Rock Hill High football team.

    “He covered many sports for us but his passion especially showed through when he wrote about prep sports. He was student athletes’ biggest fan. In turn, they and our readers had an immense respect for Barry.

    “He was one of a kind and will be greatly missed.”

    Barry was that friend in the paper’s sports section every morning, especially Saturday mornings, after Friday Night Football.

    “Barry Byers plain made high school sports in Rock Hill,” said Bill Warren, Rock Hill High athletics director in title. But for Warren, and anybody else involved with high school sports, Barry Byers was a friend.

    Football in York, Chester and Lancaster counties is not sport. It is part social life, part religious ceremony, part custom for anthropologists to wonder about.

    It is when life stops for a breath, and it is what Barry wrote about.

    Byers put the player, the team, before any other consideration. Sometimes even the score had to wait for Byers to give some young kid a pat on the back.

    “Barry Byers always gave the athletes the lead role, the starring role,” said Robert Hope, the retired longtime director of the Rock Hill YMCA and a Rock Hill High Bearcats fan for more than seven decades. “Barry was personable. He knew how to talk to people and then tell people about the game in The Herald the next day. For people who know sports in Rock Hill, much of what they learned came from Barry Byers. He will be missed by many – and I am one of them.”

    Football is the most brutal of games, filled with violent collisions and artful grace at the same time. But behind each face mask was a teenager, a kid, who became more when Barry Byers wrote about the exploits on that football field.

    A Barry Byers story had uncountable names in it. Any kid who made a great play, did something outstanding, the kid got a mention.

    The errors, the fumbles, the mistakes may have been mentioned but rarely if ever by name.

    Barry went to Rock Hill High and then went to work. He worked in a factory, like so many from Rock Hill who worked in textile mills in those days. He was an umpire, and he coached Little League. He loved the players.

    Long before David Guyton in Rock Hill was a judge known all over South Carolina for his fairness, he played Little League for Byers’ team. For the 30 years afterward, Guyton read Barry Byers’ writing in The Herald about high school sports.

    “He was as devoted to his Little League players as he was to telling people about the games in the paper,” Guyton said.

    Byers started covering games as what papers call a “stringer.” The stringer covers the game because there are more games than staff sportswriters, writes it up real fast afterwards, and gets paid a few dozen dollars for doing it.

    Then Barry Byers came to work for the sports department full-time in 1989, and he held on like a rodeo cowboy until only cancer could pull him from games.

    He wrote about the stars who made millions and the stars who gave back to kids, such as women’s basketball player Ivory Latta and the NFL’s Ben Watson. Even sick, he helped former NFL player Chris Hope organize a charity basketball game to raise money.

    Byers missed his own family’s birthdays and holidays to cover decades of games involving somebody else’s kids.

    “Might be the greatest game they ever play, I owe them to cover it,” Byers told me one day so many years ago. “It’s a holiday for them too and they have to play, so I’m gonna work. You think some kid is going to miss a game because it’s a birthday? I will even mention that the kid had a birthday, too, in the paper.”

    He wrote about every state champion football team – and every other sport as the players chased titles, too. He wrote for years about Latta, the girls basketball star from York who is the state scoring leader for boys or girls.

    A mother once called Byers and asked why he wrote so much about football, and Barry patiently explained that it was because of those stands filled with fans on Friday nights and the readers who wanted to know everything the next day.

    “Ma’am,” Barry told that lady with his voice that was so southern that it smelled of pecans and sweet tea and chocolate Yoo-hoo, spiced with hot dogs all-the-way and boiled peanuts and pork skins, “If five thousand people come to watch your son take a math test, I give you my word I will write a story about it. And I hope your son gets a 100 on his test.”

    Byers was thrilled when tiny Great Falls and Lewisville high schools in Chester County and Indian Land in Lancaster County won state titles.

    Byers was thrilled when the bigger schools won. He was thrilled to watch a mediocre team.

    He loved the games, and wanted to write about the players. If the kicker wore glasses, Byers wrote about the kicker and his glasses.

    Byers would argue with a statue over sports. The importance of high school sports may have been at issue in many an argument – and many times I was on the other side – but what never was at issue was that unconditional love Barry had for his job of covering high school sports.

    Barry wrote about the players who would play college and pro sports, and the players who would never play another down or inning or second half in their lives.

    Byers wrote stories about fans.

    And he did it all so that the people who read about football and all sports knew that he loved it just as much.

    The last football game Byers covered as he toughed through his long illness was the Northwestern Class AAAA, Division 2 state title game in 2012. At halftime he was a guest of Chris Miller, the radio broadcaster covering the game for Our Three Sons sports network.

    Chris Miller has won the award as best sports broadcaster in South Carolina for the past four years in a row. He has no peer in his business and is creating his own legend calling high school football games.

    But that day in 2012, Miller introduced Byers as “a legend in South Carolina high school sports.”

    Friday, after learning of Byers’ death, Chris Miller said that Byers covered high school football with a love and joy all will remember.

    “Covering high school sports, there was no one better than Barry Byers,” Miller said.

    Barry D. Byers - ROCK HILL - Mr. Barry D. Byers, Herald Assistant Sports Editor, died Friday, Oct. 18, 2013. He was 61. Services will be held at a later date. Born March 27, 1952, in Abbeville, S.C., Barry was the son of the late Ernest Byers and Edith H. Byers of Rock Hill. A 1970 graduate of Rock Hill High School, Barry's lifelong love affair with the newspaper business began with a paper route. While still employed with Verona Dyestuffs (Mobay), Barry was attending a ballgame and was approached by former Herald sportswriter Earl Gault about the possibility of being a stringer. In the fall of 1983, Barry started his writing career by covering Lewisville High School football games. He left Verona to work at The Herald full time in 1989. He was a champion of high school sports--not only writing about the ball games, but also the athletes: their personal triumphs, tragedies and unique stories. He was a mentor to many aspiring writers and made friends throughout the state and established contacts across the country. He kept track of every athlete he wrote about and could recall stats, scores and plays years after they had occurred. He considered many of his subjects to be extended family and welcomed them into his home and his life. Barry often said that the only other career he would have enjoyed would have been to coach high school football. He had the opportunity to coach the Lewisville football team for one game in 2004 and achieved a perfect record of 1-0. For many years, Barry coached several Rock Hill area little league baseball, youth football and basketball teams and followed the lives and careers of his former players. When he wasn't at a ballgame, writing about a ballgame or talking about a ballgame, he enjoyed time with his family, driving vacations, watching movies and television and entertaining friends. In addition to his mother, Barry is survived by his wife of 35 years, Dawn; three daughters, April D. Byers (Jay Neely) and Carly B. Moxley (Hunter), both of Rock Hill and Becky D. Byers of Hickory, N.C.; his grandchildren, Hunter A. Moxley, Kelsey N. Turner and Vonn Turner, all of Rock Hill; his brother, Brad Byers (Joi); his sisters, Gayla B. Williams (Larry) and Kim B. Smith (Bud), all of Rock Hill; and a number of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Special thanks to Dr. Kathryn Mileham of Levine Cancer Institute and her caring staff, Robin and Joann; and to Hospice & Community Care. The family will receive friends from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 20, 2013, at Greene Funeral Home Northwest Chapel, 2133 Ebenezer Road, Rock Hill, S.C. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Hospice & Community Care, the Rock Hill Rescue Squad, or the high school athletic booster club of one's choice.

    Sidney Dorfman---AKA Sid Dorfman

    Born: February 9, 1920, Newark, NJ
    Died: February 15, 2014, Mountainside, NJ, age 94

    New Jersey sports writer;
    Newark Morning Ledger, 1935 -
    Metropolitan News Service, 1937 -

    by Ron Kaplan
    NJJN Features Editor
    February 26, 2014
    Sid Dorfman, who wrote about sports for more than 70 years for The Star-Ledger, died Feb. 17 at the age of 94.

    The Newark-born Dorfman began his career as a 15-year-old high school correspondent for the Newark-based Morning Ledger in 1935. Two years later he took on an additional position with Metropolitan News Service, which supplied such information as wedding notices and obituaries for newspapers around the New York-New Jersey area.

    When his boss at MNS ran off with the secretary in 1938, Dorfman took over the company; the following year, he changed the name to Dorf Feature Service.

    “Retirement is not for me,” Dorfman told NJ Jewish News in a 2006 interview at the company headquarters in Mountainside. “If you retire, you die. I love operating this organization, to be able to get up every morning and write columns….”

    Dorfman was credited with many innovations. He expanded coverage of high school and college athletics and girls’ sports, recognizing the potential for adding their mothers as readers. He also introduced an “all-state” ranking system for schools and individual athletes. “There are 322,000 vstudents in 47 colleges in New Jersey,” he said. “Factor in their families and the schools’ alumni, and you have millions of fans who were being neglected. Regional newspapers can’t keep up, so we provide that service.”

    “I can’t think of anything else I would have wanted to do,” he said. “I think there are other professions that are more important perhaps, but then again, what’s more important than the newspapers in relation to our democratic society?”

    Having been in the industry for three-quarters of a century, Dorfman saw his share of technological innovations. “We’re in a transitional period,” he said. “The whole industry is questioning what it has to do to remain viable.” Unlike other veteran newsmen, Dorfman said, he believed there can be an “accommodation between newspapers and the Internet.”

    “People will not give up their newspapers that easily. [They] still love the printed word right in front of them. Besides, you can’t take [the Internet] into the bathroom.”

    Jerry Izenberg, Dorfman’s long-time Star-Ledger associate and friend, wrote in a eulogy for the Star-Ledger last week: “He taught me so much by example. He made the paper the Bible of high school sports. He could walk into any sports event and do the job the way it was supposed to be done.

    “When we traveled together, I loved the way he made me laugh. I loved the prose he produced under the kind of time constraints outsiders can never understand. He was the combination of all I aspired to be.

    “The writer he was, was terrific. The man he was, was even better.”
