ARLINGTON, Texas -- Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle has been elected vice president of the Baseball Writers' Association of America, putting her in line to become the first woman to head the organization in its century-plus history.
Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times was elected president at the BBWAA's World Series meeting Saturday, succeeding Ken Davidoff of Newsday, and Slusser was voted vice president. The vice president traditionally serves one year before becoming president.
Slusser, 45, has worked for the Chronicle since 1996 and has covered the Oakland Athletics since 1999.
She covered the Texas Rangers for The Dallas Morning News in 1995 and 1996.
The BBWAA was founded in 1908.
