NEW YORK (AP) — Marty Noble, the longtime baseball writer and Hall of Fame voter who was a mainstay on the New York Mets beat for decades, has died. He was 70.
He died Sunday in Florida, according to Newsday and MLB.com. Newsday said a family member confirmed his death, but no cause was given.
Noble covered the New York Yankees and Mets for Newsday from 1981-2004, the newspaper said. After that he moved to MLB.com, remaining on the Mets beat through 2010 and then working in a general role until he retired in 2016. But he could still be found at the ballpark some days, making a visit to the Mets’ spring training facility as recently as Friday, the website said.
