Lest we forget: Vic Ziegel

July 28, 2010

The veteran sportswriter died Friday at the age of 72.

Ziegel wrote mostly for the New York Post and New York Daily News. Here’s the NY Times obit by Richard Goldstein.

More tributes from the Daily News, (this one by Filip Bondy), and the Post (and another), as well as Greg Prince’s Faith and Fear in Flushing.

In addition to his work at the newspapers, Ziegel was author of Summer in the City: New York Baseball, 1947-1957.
