Marty Noble (Sportswriter. Born, The Bronx, NY, June 25, 1948.) One of the most knowledgeable baseball writers of his era, Martin Walter Noble began his career with The Herald-News in Passaic, N.J., in Aug. 1970. Noble then spent over eight years at The Record in Hackensack, N.J. (1972-81), going on the baseball beat in 1974. In January 1981, he became a baseball writer and columnist at Newsday. For nine seasons, Noble regularly covered the Yankees, shifting to the Mets in 1990. During the next 15 seasons (1990-2004), he provided thorough and insightful coverage of the Mets, though it became noted for his combative relationship with manager Bobby Valentine. Noble left Newsday after the 2004 season but continued to cover the Mets for mlb.com until 2010.
