Will the Rockies win it all?  Which team will first establish Spring Training in Cuba?  Will anyone still take President Bill’s (free) season tickets by September?  Inquiring minds want to know!  This Wednesday, April 22, Tracy “ Write ‘em Cowboy” Ringolsby, veteran of 39 major leagues seasons will tell all, and do a few prognostications.  Our second favorite Cowboy – Warren Wilson, will do the introductions. 
Tracy Ringolsby has been a professional journalist for 47 years; focused on baseball for the past 39 years.  He’s just back from 5 weeks of spring training, soaking up sun, and preparing for the MLB Season.  Tracy last spoke at RCFC in spring 2010, and whether you are a Rockies fan or not, he is always well informed and entertaining...
Known for his cowboy hat and nicknamed "The Cowboy", Tracy Ringolsby began his career with the United Press International wire service, covering games in 1976 and 1977 before moving to the Long Beach Press to cover the Angels. He later moved on to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer (1980-83), Kansas City Star (1983-86), and the Dallas Morning News (1986-91).  Ringolsby also helped establish the weekly publication Baseball America in 1981.
In 1992, Ringolsby joined the Rocky Mountain News in preparation for the Colorado Rockies. He has covered Rockies games since the club's inception in 1993, allowing him to move back to his hometown of Cheyenne, Wyoming, where he, his wife, and five horses still live.
In 2009, the Rocky Mountain News folded, and Ringolsby began writing for foxsports.com, Baseball America and PBR Magazine. He also became a pregame and postgame show host for FSN Network and an insider for the MLB Network. He is currently a full time columnist for MLB.com, and does a weekly show for KOA-Radio, the voice of the Rockies.
In 2000 Ringolsby became the first sports writer nominated for the Shining Star Award for journalistic excellence, presented by the Colorado Press Association.  He is the 2005 recipient of the J. G. Taylor Spink Award presented at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y., on July 30, 2006.  He was selected Colorado Sports Writer of the Year in 2005 and 2008, and was honored by the Wyoming Sports Hall of Fame for career achievement in 2009. He also received an honorary doctorate in letters from the University of Wyoming in the spring of 2009.
Ringolsby is a member and past president of the Baseball Writers Association of America, on the National Western Stock Show executive committee, the Professional Baseball Scouts Association board of directors, the Baseball Hall of Fame Review Committee, and the University of Wyoming, Cowboy Joe Club, board of directors.
