He is often considered one of the pioneers of sports publicity and marketing. Walsh is perhaps best known for his work with baseball legend Babe Ruth. He played a crucial role in shaping Babe Ruth's public image and capitalizing on his popularity during the early 20th century. Walsh helped negotiate endorsement deals, arrange appearances, and handle various aspects of Ruth's public relations. Walsh's contributions to the world of sports publicity have had a lasting impact, shaping how athletes are promoted and marketed to this day.

He was easily recognizable by his trademark fedora hat and cigar. Sugar was widely regarded as one of the most colorful and knowledgeable personalities in the world of boxing. Bert Sugar's contributions to boxing and sports journalism have left a lasting impact, and he is remembered as a passionate advocate for the sport and its history.
