With a heavy heart we regret to inform you of the untimely death of longtime Primate Joel Schuster, known on the site as either Jack Vincennes or Bunny Vincennes. Although I didn’t interact directly with Joel often over the years, he will be missed by all as he was always a force to be reckoned with,whether in a contentious Cubs thread or is a heated Lounge thread. Our sympathies go out to his family and friends, especially to his many,many friends on the site.
In lieu of flowers, the Dane County Humane Society or the YWCA - organizations that were important to Joel. Messages may be left with http://www.butzinmarchant.com
A gathering to remember Joel and celebrate his love of baseball will be held on Sunday, April 12th from 2-6 p.m. at Genna’s cocktail lounge at 105 W. Main, Madison, WI 53703. All who knew Joel are welcome to watch the Cubs play the Rockies, follow the final round of the Master’s, share stories and sing, “Take me out to the ballgame!”

Some touching stuff on baseball’s first female beat writer. Good quotes from Lloyd Moseby, and you get a hint of what she went through in the early 80s. RIP
It was in the late 1970s that female sportswriters began to push back against their long held prohibition from men’s locker rooms. After Sports Illustrated reporter Melissa Ludtke was barred from the New York Yankees’ clubhouse during the 1977 World Series, she filed a discrimination lawsuit against Major League Baseball. She won the suit and by the end of the 1978 season the league’s clubhouse ban on women was overturned. A few months later Gordon became the first woman admitted to the Baseball Writers Association of America.

Former major league pitcher Brad Halsey has died in a recreational climbing accident. He was 33.
In 2004, Halsey dueled Boston ace Pedro Martinez into the middle innings in a game highlighted by Derek Jeter’s diving catch into the stands at Yankee Stadium. In 2006, Halsey gave up Barry Bonds’ 714th home run, tying Babe Ruth for second place on the career list.
