Friend and White Sox Fan Bill Madden Wins J.G Taylor Spink Award, Joins Elite in Cooperstown

In a recent post, I mentioned that my friend of nearly 40 years, Bill Madden of the NY Daily News, was one of three finalists for the J.G. Taylor Spink Award, the baseball writers’ equivalent of being inducted into the Hall of Fame.

The happy news came today that Bill has indeed been selected for the award, a great day indeed for someone who loves the Hall of Fame and baseball as much as he does. And it will be a great year for Billy in ’10 as he steps on the podium in Cooperstown to accept the award as well as having his much-anticipated tome on George Steinbrenner published earlier in the year.

It is also relevant to mention that while Billy has been identified with New York baseball, he is a fan of the Pale Hose and looks forward to being alongside one of his heroes, Nellie Fox, in the upstate New York shrine.
