Following his graduation from high school, Zabitka worked as a laborer at the Sun Shipyard & Drydock Co. before being drafted in the United States Navy to serve in World War II. While aboard the USS Randolph, he wrote a newspaper for his shipmates. Following his return to the United States, he wrote columns sponsored by local businesses, and convinced them to buy advertising space for his stories. He later worked for various local newspapers before getting hired by the Chester Times in 1952.


Matthew John Zabitka (October 25, 1920 – May 29, 2009) was an American sportswriter. He spent forty years working with The News Journal and The Morning News.

Zabitka was born on October 25, 1920, in Chester, Pennsylvania. He began his career at the age of 13, in c. 1934, when he noticed the local Progressive Weekly newspaper did not include a sports section. Zabitka, a sports fan, subsequently wrote a few articles on local sports titled "Sports of all sorts", and sent it to the paper's office. "I picked up the paper the next Thursday and there it was!" he said. The newspaper then hired him to write the column, paying him $5 per story.
