The Fantasy Sports Writers Association's hall of fame committee has selected two pioneering baseball writers, Todd Zola and Rick Wilton, for induction in 2020.

Zola was a founder of Mastersball in 1997 and he is a regular presenter at First Pitch Arizona. His work has been featured by nearly every leading fantasy baseball content provider, including ESPN, SI, MLB, RotoWire, BaseballHQ and Fantasy Alarm. He is a two-time FSWA award winner, recognized as the 2017 baseball writer of the year. Zola is also an accomplished fantasy player, having won Tout Wars and LABR titles, as well as multiple NFC leagues.

Wilton was the fantasy industry's first injury analyst with medical training and he authored the Baseball Injury Report in 2007. He developed the first fantasy industry live event, which evolved into First Pitch Arizona. Wilton's Hot Sheet was among the earliest fantasy news bite publications. He has also served as director of news and analysis for BaseballHQ and he's written for both STATS Inc. and Fanball.

Sincere congratulations to both Todd and Rick.
