Steve Dilbeck, the primary contributor to this blog, was honored by his peers in the Baseball Writers’ Assn. of America’s Los Angeles-Anaheim chapter on Tuesday night.

For meritorious coverage of the sport over the years, Dilbeck was voted the winner of the Bob Hunter Award. The award is named after the late Bob Hunter, the longtime baseball writer for the Los Angeles Examiner and Herald Examiner.


Dilbeck started covering the Dodgers for the San Bernardino Sun in the 1980s. A traveling beat writer for seven years, he was in the Dodger Stadium press box for Kirk Gibson’s home run in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series. He was later a columnist at the Los Angeles Daily News.

Dilbeck has been blogging for The Times since 2010.
