    CHICAGO (CBS) — It’s March, the month that should include baseball’s Opening Day – but guess what. This year, the first two series of the season were set to begin on March 31. But those first two series won’t be happening, after MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred announced their cancellation following the breakdown of some acrimonious talks with the MLB players’ union broke down hours before a deadline imposed by management.

The Cubs will miss a three-game road series against the Cincinnati Reds, and will also miss what would have been their home-opening two-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals. As CBS 2’s Jermont Terry reported, the COVID-19 pandemic messed up the Majors for two straight years. Now, the league is imploding on its own. And all the uncertainty is trickling down to those who depend on MLB fans. In Wrigleyville, bar owners were bummed...
    Philadelphia will now become the first major city in the country that bans police officers from making traffic stops for minor, low-level violations like for a broken taillight, or a missing registration sticker. Mayor Jim Kenney, a Democrat, signed multiple bills into law that work to stop racial profiling and increase equality by lessening negative interactions with law enforcement officers according to a statement released by Philadelphia's city council.  The new law creates an open searchable database recording traffic stops and prohibits police officers from stopping drivers for minor offenses by reclassifying several offenses as secondary violations. People of color are 3.4 times as likely to be pulled over as white people in Philadelphia Native American Philadelphians are the most likely minority group to be stopped  Philadelphia is the first major city to ban low-level traffic stops; the Driving Equity bills became law after being signed by Mayor James Kenney It will include driver and officer information, demographic and geographic information, and the reason for each stop.  Secondary violations citations are issued to drivers by mail, eliminating the need for...
                      by Ailan Evans  Apple and Google might change their app store business practices because of a new South Korean law similar to recent legislative efforts by U.S. lawmakers. The new law would prohibit app stores, including Apple’s App Store and the Google Play Store, from forcing developers to use the tech giants’ payment systems, The Wall Street Journal reported. The bill, passed by South Korea’s National Assembly, will become law once signed by President Moon Jae-in. The Korean bill is similar to a bipartisan bill introduced by Sens. Richard Blumenthal, Amy Klobuchar, and Marsha Blackburn to the U.S. Senate earlier this month that seeks “to promote competition and reduce gatekeeper power in the app economy, increase choice, improve quality, and reduce costs for consumers.” Both bills prevent app stores from requiring the use of their billing systems and take aim at the tech giants’ commission structure. Google and Apple currently collect a 30% commission on in-app purchases through their current billing systems. Under the new South Korean legislation, app makers could use alternative payment methods to circumvent...

    A win tomorrow at the Open Championship would mean everything to Louis Oosthuizen and Collin Morikawa, but not for the same reasons Eleven years is a long time in the life of a professional golfer. Oosthuizen has been in this situation many times; in addition to his 2010 victory, he lost in a playoff at St Andrews in 2015. Morikawa hasn’t. How could he? This is the 24-year-old’s first appearance in the Open. But Morikawa has taken to links golf perfectly. He didn’t like how his irons felt last week at the Scottish Open, so he changed them. He didn’t like his tempo and speed on the greens, so we ditched his saw grip in favor of a more conventional one on long putts. It’s working like a charm. Morikawa was two-over through five holes on Saturday before scratching his way back into contention with four birdies the rest of the round. It’s an unfamiliar position for him, but he’s not going to abandon the game plan that has served him well for 54 holes. “You build a game plan...
    Even as Covid cases continue to climb, the Government's plan to lift all remaining restrictions in a matter of days is still on track for a single reason: the vaccine has severely weakened the link between infections, hospitalisations and deaths. Yet, amid the optimism, another concern has cast a shadow – the rising diagnoses of long Covid, the debilitating condition that leaves sufferers battling symptoms for months after being infected.  More than a million Britons are said to be living with lingering problems, from breathlessness to brain fog, and that figure could double by the end of the summer, say experts. With no effective drug treatments yet discovered, there has been little hope for those living with the worst difficulties – until now. In a world first, British scientists are set to explore giving long Covid patients monthly doses of the Covid vaccine, in an effort to combat the chronic condition.

    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — When the Giants wrapped up Farhan Zaidi’s first spring with the club in March, 2019, the organization’s top baseball executive made an under-the-radar trade that went largely unnoticed. The decision to trade pitching prospect, Tyler Herb, to the Baltimore Orioles allowed the Giants to clear a 40-man roster spot and acquire an outfielder who would provide important depth at the Triple-A level. The outfielder the Giants added had six years of minor league experience, rather pedestrian career statistics and a last name that created a bit of buzz. No Giants fans knew of Mike Yastrzemski, but most had at least heard of his grandfather Carl, a Hall of Fame outfielder who spent 23 seasons with the Boston Red Sox. Yastrzemski wasn’t a top prospect and wasn’t necessarily on track to eventually play in the big leagues, but upon arriving at Triple-A Sacramento, he forced his way up. The left-handed hitting Vanderbilt product slugged 12 home runs and had 24 extra-base hits in 40 games with the River Cats before the Giants gave him his...
    Injuries in Wrestling are nothing new. WWE has been presenting a series solely on the reports of injuries of its NXT Talents. After the grueling New Year’s Evil, some major injuries are there.

    Saudi Arabia has welcomed fellow Gulf nations to a summit after finally ending its three-year embargo of Qatar. The leaders signed a declaration on Tuesday in the kingdom to mark a new page in relations following the blockade that deeply divided the region. Mohammed bin Salman even embraced Qatar's Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani as he arrived at the summit. The Saudi decision to open its air space and borders to Qatar was the first major step towards ending the diplomatic crisis that began in 2017, just as the Trump administration was raising pressure on Iran.

    Millions of Americans were elated to learn that President-elect Joe Biden was projected as the winner of the 2020 election and will be entering the White House come January. But they’re arguably even more ecstatic over the guests he’s bringing with him: his newly Twitter-famous dogs, Champ and Major.

    MLB: Mike Leake is the first major leaguer to opt out of playing the season By: Andres Chavez June 29, 2020 Follow ESM On Social Facebook Twitter Youtube Flipboard Instagram ShareTweet0 SharesAfter Los Angeles Lakers guard Avery Bradley declined to participate in what remains of the NBA season, it was expected that at least a group of MLB players would do the same when the action returns on July 23rd for the 2020 season. COVID-19 cases are spiking again in some states and it figures to be an ever-present threat to public health. Not only are players at risk, but also their families. According to Steve Gilbert of MLB.com, Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander Mike Leake is the first MLB player that has publicly declined to play in the season, effectively electing not to take the field. The Diamondbacks have since confirmed the report on Monday afternoon. According to what MLB stated recently when trying to structure the season, “players who are considered ‘high risk’ will still get paid and receive service time.”...
