Bill Shaikin Elected President of BBWAA

Los Angeles Times sports reporter Bill Shaikin was elected president of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America at the organization’s World Series meeting Saturday.

Shaikin, who has done an excellent job of reporting the ongoing Frank McCourt saga, succeeds Ken Davidoff of Newsday as president.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle was elected vice president of the BBWAA, which puts her one step away from becoming the first woman to head the organization.

Traditionally, the vice president serves one year before becoming president.
