Gammons Leaving ESPN
BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) _ Peter Gammons is leaving ESPN after the winter meetings.

Gammons joined ESPN in 1989 and has been an integral part of its baseball coverage since. He wrote for the Boston Globe starting in 1969 and also worked for Sports Illustrated (1976-78, 1986-90).

The 64-year-old Gammons received the 2004 J.G. Taylor Spink Award for outstanding baseball writing and was honored during the 2005 Hall of Fame induction ceremony. He signed in October with Creative Artists Agency.
