PHILADELPHIA — I covered the San Diego Padres at San Diego Stadium in the mid-1980s but I loved working the baseball desk at UPI headquarters in The New York Daily News Building in NYC.  We had the best team in the world!

Logan Hobson, Dave Raffo, Mike Barnes, Mike Tully, Fred McMane, Rich Rosenblatt, Joe Carnicelli, Ira Kaufman, Fred Lief, Marty Leder, Joe Illuzzi, Collins Yearwood, Bo Diaz and Milton Richman.

Trained by the best in the business!
