Former Flyers beat writer Rod Beaton died

For those of us from that generation ...

Former Flyers beat writer Rod Beaton died a couple of hours ago. He and his family suffered for many years. Hoping they all will find some peace from today.


Rod Beaton's roster of friends grew almost daily for the more than two decades he covered sports for USA TODAY. He couldn't help it.

The baseball world and the newspaper -- two of the many passions he loved to discuss with anyone who would listen and respond -- lost a friend Wednesday when the gregarious journalist died after a lengthy illness.

Beaton, a member of the original USA TODAY staff in 1982, covered Major League Baseball for 20 years after serving as the newspaper's first NHL writer. Before that, he covered the Philadelphia Flyers' infamous Broad Street Bullies championship team for the Wilmington (Del.) News Journal.
