1992 BBWAA Career Excellence Award Winner Bus Saidt
By day, Bus Saidt was an accountant for the city of Trenton, N.J.; by night, he was a frustrated sports announcer.
In 1964, at the age of 43, he embarked on a writing career with the Trentonian.
He moved over to the Trenton Times as their daily sports columnist in 1967 and went on to become a sports legend in Trenton.
Saidt was always a gentleman. He was dedicated, fair, respected, opinionated, honest, enthusiastic, and a lover of the game.
Known as "the man from Trenton who never took a day off," he covered an average of 180 Phillies, Mets and Yankees games a season: All road games from Trenton.
Saidt liked his baseball "plain vanilla." He decried the lack of fundamental play, individualism, high-fives, over-enthusiastic field demonstrations, the designated hitter and team mascots.
He had knowledge, contacts and style.
Saidt passed away on April 8, 1989.
