The Bible of Baseball has been sold. American City Business Journals is buying the Sporting News, founded in St. Louis 120 years ago and still published in the area. The corporate offices are in Creve Coeur. The Business Journals Company will be the fourth owner of the newspaper, founded to cover baseball, boxing, horse racing, and theatre in 1886. Twenty-five years later it focused on baseball, and became known at the sport’s Bible. The new owners are not saying if they’ll keep the magazine’s headquarters in Creve Coeur.
