Walter Brasch--who was once a sports editor but went to baseball games mostly for the buffet in the press box--is a syndicated social issues columnist and book author. His current book is the critically-acclaimed novel Before the First Snow, which is devoid of any mention of baseball. He acknowledges the assistance New York Sun reporter Francis P. Church who told a young girl in 1897 to believe in Santa and in miracles. But, then again, he never met the 2012 Phillies.
