Report: Conlin Leaves Ahead Of Article

PHILADELPHIA - An online report says Philadelphia Daily News columnist Bill Conlin has left the newspaper over an article that is set to appear in the Inquirer.

Deadspin.com reports that the forthcoming Inquirer report includes child molestation allegations.

Deadspin reported according to a source that Conlin abruptly resigned Tuesday, although other media outlets are being told that Conlin "retired."

Conlin has hired an attorney to defend himself against the piece, according to the Deadspin report.

A longtime Phillies beat writer before becoming a columnist at the Daily News, Conlin made it into the Baseball Hall of Fame earlier this year as the 2011 J.G. Taylor Spink Award winner . He has also been a columnist for the Sporting News.
