Ken Rosenthal: Professional Life
A lead field reporter for Major League Baseball on Fox since 2005, as well as an insider on MLB Network since 2009, Rosenthal began his career at The York Daily Record and The Courier-Post in New Jersey (where he worked for 2 years) after doing internships as a sports reporter for Newsday on Long Island.
He then got a full time job at The Baltimore Sun, and while working there he was given the Maryland Sportscaster of the Year Award five times by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association. From 1990 to 2000, Rosenthal simultaneously worked his other gigs and also provided weekly notes during baseball season to Sports Illustrated.
Rosenthal has also authored 3 books : Chicken Soup for the Baseball Fan's Soul (released in 2001), Best of the Best – 35 Major Leagues Superstars (published in partnership with MLB Properties Inc. in 1998), and his 3rd book Dean Smith : A Tribute (published in 2001).
Rosenthal has been active with a philanthropic initiative called The Bow Tie Cause, started by Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Dhani Jones in honor of his best friend who was diagnosed in 1999 with lymphoma. The company produces bow ties representing a number of charities known in the US, like Livestrong, Ronald McDonald, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, etc. Rosenthal showed his active support by wearing a charity's bow tie during each MLB game on Fox TV, talking about the cause and how fans may support the initiative during broadcasts or on FOXSports.com.
Ken Rosenthal: Scandals
Most would not know, but one sure thing that Rosenthal can brag about is that his laptop once got smashed by a foul ball from Cal Ripken. Rosenthal had earlier written a bit harshly about Cal, and the latter couldn't stop himself from letting the ball fly. While Rosenthal has denied that Cal actually hit the laptop on purpose, stating that not even Cal was good to throw a shot like that, phew, lucky that Rosenthal was missed!
