Harry George Salsinger (April 10, 1885 – November 27, 1958) was an American sportswriter who served as sports editor of The Detroit News for 49 years.


Salsinger was born in Springfield, Ohio.[2] In 1907, he started writing for The Cincinnati Post.[3]

In 1909, Salsinger began working at The Detroit News as sports editor, a position he held until his death in 1958.[4] He covered 50 World Series, two Olympic Games, and many other sports including football, golf, tennis, and boxing.[4] Salsinger was also a president of both the Baseball Writers' Association of America (BBWAA),[2] and the Football Writers Association of America.[5] Salsinger retired in January 1958 and died 10 months later at Henry Ford Hospital following a long illness.[6][7]

Salsinger was married to Gladys E. Salsinger. They had a son, Harry G. Salsinger Jr., born in October 1919.[8]

In 1968, the BBWAA posthumously awarded Salsinger the J. G. Taylor Spink Award for his baseball writing.[9] He was inducted into the Michigan Sports Hall of Fame in 2002.[10][11]
