I was first exposed to the sportswriting of Terry Pluto of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer when I read Loose Balls, his history of the American Basketball Association. (I highly recommend it). I have always admired Pluto’s sportwriting and have read several of his books over the years.
This is why I was surprised to learn that Pluto has written several books on religion and even writes a column for Cleveland.Com called “Faith and You.” Today, for example, he wrote a column on the Cleveland Indians and a column on the power of prayer.
Is anyone aware of another sportswriter who doubles as a religion columnist? I love the combination!
