New York Times sportswriter Frank Litsky was named the recipient of the Al Schoenfield Media Award. Litsky has been a sportswriter and editor of the Times for 40 years and of United Press for 11 years before that. His fondest memory goes back to 1939, when he watched Alan Ford of Yale swim the 100 yard freestyle in 49.7 seconds, the first time anyone had broken 50 seconds.
