Longtime PD portswriter, Chuck Heaton, dies at age 90

Longtime Cleveland Plain Dealer sportswriter, Chuck Heaton, succumbed to complications arising from pneumonia at age 90.

You may have seen his daughter, actress Patricia Heaton, on a TV show or two. Bob Dolgan wrote a fine obituary.

Chuck Heaton was most known for covering the Browns in the early days, but he also covered the Indians extensively over the years, and retired from writing with BBWAA Card #1, indicating the longest tenure of active members when he retired in 1993.
