YORKTOWN, N.Y. — Happy birthday to Yorktown’s Buster Olney.

Robert Stanbury "Buster" Olney III, a resident of Yorktown with his wife Lisa, turns 51 on Wednesday.

Olney grew up on a dairy farm in Randolph Center, Ver. and went to school at Northfield Mount Hermon School in Gill, Mass. and Vanderbilt University in Nashville, where he majored in history.

He started covering baseball in 1989, is an ESPN columnist and is one of about 575 voters for the Baseball Hall of Fame. He also has covered the New York Giants and Yankees for The New York Times.

In 2004, Olney published “The Last Night of the Yankee Dynasty,” a nonfiction account of the Yankees' run of championships in the 1990s.

In 2010, he wrote “How Lucky You Can Be: The Story of Coach Don Meyer,” an account of how a car crash and cancer diagnosis affected the life of the highly accomplished college basketball coach.
