Joe Posnanski On Mitch Albom


Joe writes that Mitch was an inspiration for him as a sportswriter. I’ve been more interested in getting a book out than covering events or writing columns. I suppose Bill James was a lodestar for me. Unfortunately, he is the exception. Most of the other guys I read and liked got their starts in magazines and newspapers: Paul Zimmerman and Leonard Koppett; to name two.
