Spink Family Mausoleum

Charles C. Spink joined his brother, Al, in St. Louis to help publish the Sporting News. His son, J.G. Taylor Spink took over as publisher when his father died in 1914. At age 26, Spink set out to build up the paper and steadily expanded his staff.

The Sporting News is known as “The Bible of Baseball.” When J.G. Taylor Spink died in 1962, he passed on the publishing empire to his son, C.C. Johnson Spink.
