1980 J.G. Taylor Spink Award Winner Milton Richman

Part of the J.G. TAYLOR SPINK AWARD series

A brief effort as a minor league infielder provided Milton Richman common ground for establishing a unique rapport with ballplayers.

His longtime tenure with UPI was marked by his top reputation as a consistently hard working story breaker and as a scrupulously honest and fair newspaperman.

Richman was a man of great depth, warmth and integrity, and was always willing to share with others.

Sartorially correct, soft-spoken and articulate, Richman's byline was a symbol of thorough and accurate reporting for many decades.

Richman passed away on June 9, 1986.
