David Lamb, an author...
According to his obit in the Times (my emphasis):
He began his career at 14, after writing to The Milwaukee Journal and volunteering to contribute a weekly column about his beloved Braves from the perspective of a teenager who had seen the team desert Boston for Milwaukee. The Journal’s sports editor agreed, and David’s father rented him a typewriter for $9 a month.
Nothing like supporting your kid's dreams!
