Shirley Povich


Shirley Povich covered baseball – his true passions – from Walter Johnson to Cal Ripken in a career at The Washington Post that spanned 75 years. The prolific and profound Povich covered the Washington Senator’s lone World Championship in 1924 and wrote his final column the day before his death at 92. Generations of Washington readers learned about sport and life reading Povich’s “This Morning” column.
