Baseball Brother

Late WUIS staff member John Wallenstein is remembered by his brother Roger Wallenstein in this blog post that is part of his regular beat The White Sox Report.
He may not have realized it at the time, but my brother John created the model for the Excel spreadsheet almost 30 years before Microsoft unveiled it. All because of the White Sox. The season was 1959, and because "it just needed to be done," Brother John began keeping day-to-day statistics - both hitting and pitching - for the eventual American League champions.
