Sports Shooter News & Notes, Part 2
By Robert Hanashiro

"The Perfect Game," a collection of baseball photographs by Walter Iooss is slated to be published in October 2001 by Total Sports Publishing.

More than a reprint of "Diamond Dreams," "The Perfect Game" will contain about 25-30% new material, including photographs of Sammy Sosa, Mark McGwire, Derek Jeter, Frank Thomas, and many other current stars. Also, an entirely new text will be written by Ira Berkow, the dean of sportswriters at The New York Times.

Additionally, we'll be publishing a third collection of Walter's photographs, "The Sporting Life," in 2002.

(Thanks to Aaron Johnson for passing along this info.)


- Morgan Ong, a picture editor at the Sacramento Bee, has been named the Director of Photography of the Fresno Bee. Ong replaces Thom Halls and will start his new position on January 8, 2001.


- Deb Yovanovich will be joining the USA TODAY Graphics and Photography Department as an assistant photo editor on the Money desk. Yovanovich comes to USA TODAY from Gannett News Service where she is a photo coordinator. She recently worked in Sydney at the Summer Olympics as the GNS photo editor.


- Diane Weiss has left USA TODAY to join the staff of the Detroit Free Press as a picture editor. She will be editing in both the sports and business sections of the Free Press. Weiss formerly worked at the Detroit News before joining USA TODAY.


- Check out a couple of pretty funny web sites when you have some time:
(If you haven't viewed "Clinton: Final Days" it is definitely worth the time. If you're still on an analog phone line, just click the "Final Days" link and go to sleep. You'll bust a gut in the morning when you see this.)


- Darryl Miho reports that John Grieshop and his wife Ellen are the proud parents of a baby boy! Born 2 lbs. 14 oz., he is about 11-weeks premature, but recent reports are that he is doing fine and breathing on his own.


- Sports Shooter can always be accessed via the web. Each issue is supplemented with many images and put together by Sports Shooter curator Brad Mangin. To check out this and all of the previous issues, go to:
