Gallagher: Remembering Norm King

From SABR member Danny Gallagher at the Canadian Baseball Network on August 17, 2018, on SABR member Norm King:

King, 61, who spent a long career as a Canadian civil servant in the federal government system, died way too soon on July 31 in Ottawa after waging a battle with a very rare form of bile duct cancer which was diagnosed Oct. 31, 2017.


King volunteered to write no less than 43 profiles of major-league players, coaches, managers and executives for the SABR Bio Project series.
