Longtime Ledger Sports Editor Cecil Darby dies - Columbus Ledger-Enquirer

Sunday, February 12, 2017

U.S. Marine Corps during World War II, mostly in the Pacific.After his retirement from the newspaper, Darby was honored for his work many times.He was inducted into the Chattahoochee Valley Sports Hall of Fame. Darby went into the South Atlantic League Hall of Fame in 1995 in a class that included pitcher Bob Gibson, catcher Al Lopez and the legendary Enos Slaughter.He kept meticulous records and in 2006 donated much of what he had accumulated to the Columbus State University archives. The collection included extensive material on Columbus minor league baseball teams dating back to the late 1800s.He has boxscores, rosters, photographs and scrapbooks of the Columbus Cardinals, Columbus Foxes, Columbus Astros, Columbus Yankees, Columbus RedStixx, Columbus Mudcats and most recently the Columbus Catfish.“I can remember when we went to Golden Park to see the Columbus Cardinals,” Winn said. “The men in our family read the sports pages.

Why would you call anyone else?’When the Columbus RedStixx replaced the Columbus Mudcats and Double-A ball gave way to Single-A ball in the 1990s, Darby, long retired, could be found at Golden Park most nights.“He loved baseball,” Clegg said. “There would be nights there were 50 people at the park. You could bet, Cecil was one of those 50.”His material also included extensive information on the Columbus College athletic programs in the earlier years. Ragsdale was the first baseball coach at Columbus College when it went from a two-year to four-year school.In the early years of Columbus College athletics, Darby and the newspaper played a crucial role, said Ragsdale, who coached from 1970 to ’84.“Now, he favored the hometown team,” Ragsdale said. “He would ride the bus with us to games. But I can safely say this, he was the best recruiter we ever had. I would take a scrapbook with a lot of articles to someone we wanted and I would always say, ‘This is the kind of support you will get from the local newspaper.’”...
