James Patrick Dawson---AKA Jim Dawson---his Sporting News' obit lists his middle name as Parnell.


James Patrick Dawson


Born: March 27, 1895, New York City, NY


Died: March 6, 1953, New York City, NY, age 57,---d. St. Anthony's Hospital, St. Petersburg, FL, of heart ailment.


New York sports writer;


New York Times boxing editor, 1915 - 1953, helped found the New York


Boxing Writers Association in 1936 and served as its 1st Vice President.


Top baseball writer, and also specialized in boxing writing.


Dawson began a 45-year career with the New York Times as a copy boy in 1908. Eight years later, he became boxing editor and covered boxing and baseball until his death during spring training in 1953. The annual award presented to the top rookie in the Yankees ' training camp is named in his honor.


--------------------------------------------


Jimmy Dawson (Sportswriter. Born, New York, Mar. 27, 1895; died, St. Petersburg, Fla., Mar. 6, 1953.) Boxing editor of The New York Times for 38 years (1915-53), James P. Dawson was also distinguished as a baseball writer. Dawson was hired at age 13 in 1908 as an office boy for sports editor Henry P. Burchell (q.v.) and graduated to the sports desk five years later. He began covering baseball in 1918. Dawson covered every heavyweight champion from Jack Dempsey to Rocky Marciano, and was close enough to most of them to have a personal as well as professional relationship. Dempsey once presented him with a watch inscribed, “To my pal, Jimmy Dawson.” He was an organizer of the New York Boxing Writers Association (1936) and served as chapter chairman of the New York Baseball Writers Association (1936-37). Dawson, a six-footer who looked like one of the heavyweight fighters he covered, was an active participant in the writers’ shows at the annual dinners of both groups. He performed the feat of expanding his round-by-round summary of the 1921 Dempsey-Georges Carpentier fight at Jersey City from three paragraphs to three full columns from memory after returning to The Times office on the night of the fight. Dawson was a regular at Friday Night Fights at the Garden (he covered his last Feb. 20, 1953), was distinguished to television viewers as the man at ringside in the cap, and was honored by a moment of silence before the main event the night he died. Dawson passed away while covering Yankees spring training and the best Yankees spring training rookie award selected annually is named for him.

Big Guy,


Thanks for the suggestion. I had picked 3B Aaron Judge. Lets hope that Heathcott can stay healthly this season to prove his talent.

I don't know if anybody would know how to act if Heathcott stayed healthy a full year, but I'd love to see it. 2 shoulder, and 2 knee operations have certainly hurt him. The kid has talent.

The New York Yankees today announced that outfielder Slade Heathcott is the recipient of the 2015 James P. Dawson Award, given annually to the outstanding Yankees rookie in spring training. Heathcott received the award in a pre-game ceremony today, prior to the Yankees' 1:05 p.m. game vs. the Nationals at George M. Steinbrenner Field.


Heathcott, 24, batted .355 (11-for-31) 12R, 2 doubles, 1 triple, 1HR and 7 RBIs in 21 games this spring and was tied for 4th in the Grapefruit League in runs scored. Over parts of 6 minor league seasons, the Texarkana, Tex., native has batted .268 (318-for-1,187) with 69 doubles, 20HR and 126 RBIs. Heathcott was originally selected by the Yankees in the 1st round (29th overall) of the 2009 1st-Year Player Draft.


The award was established in honor of James P. Dawson (1896-1953), who began a 45-year career with The New York Times as a copy boy in 1908. Eight years later, he became boxing editor and covered boxing and baseball until his death during spring training in 1953.


Two winners of the honor, Tony Kubek in 1957 and Tom Tresh in 1962, went on to win the American League "Rookie of the Year" Award. The award first was presented to rookie outfielder Norm Siebern by Manager Casey Stengel in St. Petersburg, Fla., at the conclusion of spring training in 1956. New York Yankees beat writers vote on the winner.


In conjunction with the award, Heathcott will receive a watch from Betteridge Jewelers.
