    Though it has been known since this time last year, today the Star-Tribune's La Velle E. Neal III was officially named the President of the Baseball Writers Association. He was Vice President (to Susan Slusser) the last year.

    LaVelle is the first African American to hold the title in the organization's 105 year history.

    Good stuff and congrats. We know he does good work, I didn't know it was recognized nationally.

    Yeah, saw this the other day. Good for him. Wonder if he'll be able to achieve his dream of making pitchers ineligible for MVP. :-)

    Congratulations to LaVelle! I have always liked his writing style.

    Gotten some good insights from him over the years.
    I'm on a whiskey diet. I've lost 3 days already.
