David Lamb, an author...

...and War Correspondent, died at age 76.

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!
