Hall of Fame baseball writer Jerome Holtzman passed away last weekend, the Trib is reporting.  In addition to being credited with inventing the save, Holtzman uncovered Hack Wilson's "lost RBI" several years ago -- and the record book was changed to reflect 191 RBI in 1930 instead of the previously believed 190.

Holtzman served for several years as a historian for MLB after retiring from the Tribune.
