Susan Slusser Elected VP Of BBWAA, In Line To Be First Female President

Susan Slusser, Oakland Athletics beat writer for the San Francisco Chronicle, has been elected Vice President of the Baseball Writers' Association of America and is in line to become the first female president of the BBWAA. Slusser was voted into the vice president position on Saturday with Bill Shaikin of the LA Times elected president. It is tradition that the vice president serves for one year and then becomes the president. Slusser has worked in journalism since graduating from Stanford in 1988 and as A's beat writer for the San Francisco Chronicle since 1999.

It is interesting to note that the BBWAA was using their semiannual meeting to consider Major League Baseball's attempts to ban tweeting from the locker room and press conferences. Tweeting has become fairly regular for journalists, so it will be interesting to see what kind of backlash this receives. Social media is moving forward but some sports leagues are attempting to slow it down.
