    导出博客文章Claire Smith, the first African-American female newspaper reporter to cover
    Major League Baseball on a daily basis, has won the J.G. Taylor Spink Award, the
    top honor for a baseball writer.The Spink Award goes to a writer for meritorious
    contributions to baseball writing and is presented during Hall of Fame Weekend,
    July 28-31, 2017, in Cooperstown, New York. The announcement, based on balloting
    by the Baseball Writers Association of America, was made Tuesday during the
    winter meetings.Smith, who received 272 votes from 449 ballots, including three
    blanks, represented the New York chapter of the BBWAA.Smith is a coordinating
    editor for ESPNs universal news group, with an emphasis on baseball. She
    previously worked as a reporter for the Hartford Courant, as a national baseball
    columnist at The New York Times and as a columnist for The Philadelphia
    Inquirer.Smith was given a standing ovation when her election was announced, and
    she asked the other half dozen women in the room to stand alongside her as she
    spoke.Her voice quavering, Smith thanked the guys that stood up to the athletes
    and teams and said that we are your peers and we deserve to be treated like
    you.I want to thank you as well as the women who walked the walk and fought the
    battles and got all of us to this point, she said. No one does this by
    themselves.Among Smiths other honors, she has earned the Legacy Award from the
    National Association of Black Journalists in 2011 and the Mary Garber Pioneer
    Award from the Association for Women in Sports Media in 2000. Smith also has
    been honored with the Sam Lacy Legacy Award by the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum
    and MLB.com.Smith, 62, is a trailblazer for women in sports media and fought for
    equal access. Notably, she was physically removed from the clubhouse by San
    Diego Padres players in the 1984 National League Championship Series with the
    Chicago Cubs. Former MLB commissioner Bowie Kuhn, who once fought to keep female
    sports writers out of major league clubhouses, later called her the best
    baseball writer in America.Scott Powers, deputy sports editor of the Courant,
    said he uses Claire as an example to new writers of how to treat co-workers.
    Such a kind person to editors working inside, and writers in the field, he said.
    Pure grace under fire.When an earthquake struck at the 1989 World Series in
    Oakland, California, Powers said Smith was there with another Courant writer,
    Jack OConnell. When Smith was finally able to find a working phone, her first
    question to Powers was, I cant find Jack. Have you heard from Jack? After he was
    able to reassure her that Jack was fine, and she made sure he contacted Jacks
    family, a magnificent, newsy story was filed by Claire, Powers said.Award
    finalist Jim Reeves, the longtime Fort Worth Star-Telegram columnist and Texas
    Rangers beat writer, received 118 votes; Juan Vene, of the South Florida
    chapter, had 56. Cheap Jordan 12 From
