Los Angeles Times sports reporter Steve Dilbeck was voted the winner of the Bob Hunter Award by his peers in the Baseball Writers’ Association of America’s Los Angeles-Anaheim chapter for his meritorious coverage of the sport over the years.

Dilbeck is the primary blogger of the LAT Dodgers blog. He spent seven years covering the Dodgers for the San Bernardino Sun and was eventually a columnist for the Daily News.

The award is named after Bob Hunter, a former baseball writer for the Herald Examiner and the Los Angeles Examiner.
