    Jerry Taylor loved golf and so it was no surprise that one bright sunny afternoon in March 2002, he could be found practising his chip shots at his local course in Tucson, Arizona. Unfortunately for the mild-mannered 60-year-old frozen food salesman, lurking in the desert surrounding the practice range was a man squinting through the sights of a high-powered rifle. Poor Jerry didn’t stand a chance. The bullet hit him in the back and he died instantly. His assailant dragged his body about 15 ft to hide it behind some mesquite bushes, went through his pockets to find his wallet and then, inexplicably, threw it away without removing the $15 it contained. Taylor’s murder might have gone down in history as just another statistic in a country which records thousands of fatal shootings every year if it hadn’t later come to light that he was a victim of a psychopath who went on to gain infamy as the Washington Sniper. Now Taylor’s story — and those of the sniper’s other 16 victims — is being told in an unforgettable new...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — The World Rugby Sevens Series has rescheduled its U.S. stop from March to August due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Freddie Freeman, Atlanta Braves. (Mandatory Credit: Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports) The Atlanta Braves may need to get creative to ensure Freddie Freeman stays with the team. While MLB has its players locked out, it could be a boost for the defending World Series champion Atlanta Braves to find new and creative ways to retain their franchise cornerstone: first baseman Freddie Freeman. Entering his age-32 season, Freeman is in the midst of his prime and has only professionally played in an Atlanta uniform. Though the Braves remain in the driver’s seat leading Freeman negotiations, Atlanta cannot be stupid and let their most important player since Chipper Jones walk away for nothing. Braves Country will be absolutely furious if the team’s on-field identity signs up to play elsewhere. Here are three sweet contract incentives that should be baked into Freeman’s six-year extension.Atlanta Braves: 3 awesome contract incentives to entice Freddie Freeman to stay3.

    The ultra-woke, male-bashing Y: The Last Man series was much anticipated but lasted only a single season on FX. Now, showrunner Eliza Clark is admitting defeat in finding another network to pick the show up. Clark and the producers of Y had hoped to find a new host to continue the series that imagined a world without “cisgendered” men, based on the Vertigo comic book series created by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra that ran from 2002 to 2008. The show was cancelled by FX On Hulu after a single, ten-episode season. And the campaign to find a new home is now over, Deadline reported. “For those of you who have been asking me: we tried really hard to get another platform to pick up season 2 of Y,” Clark wrote on Twitter. “But sadly, it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. It is always incredibly difficult to move a show, and in recent years, it has only gotten harder.” For those of you who have been asking me: we tried really hard to get another platform to pick...
    16 and Pregnant Star Jordan Cashmyer Dead at 26 British national ID’d as hostage-taker at Texas synagogue Rafael Benitez was fired by Everton on Sunday, a day after a 2-1 loss to Norwich City that was the team's ninth league loss in its last 13. © Graham Wilson/Action Plus/Icon Sportswire The team announced the firing in a brief, three-sentence press release. In a statement of his own, Benitez blamed "the financial situation and then the injuries that followed" for the team's lack of success during his tenure. He wrote that Everton would've seen improvement "once the injured players were back and with the arrival of the new signings." Everton is 16th in the Premier League table, two spots ahead of relegation. Norwich City is 18th, but scored twice in the first 18 minutes Saturday en route to its win against Everton. The last Premier League victory for Everton was a 2-1 win against Arsenal in December. The team has had several poor performances, including a 5-2 loss to Watford and a 1-0 loss to Brentford. Benitez was hired in June...
    The Chicago Cubs congratulate starting pitcher Jon Lester on one fantastic baseball career. After 16 seasons in the big leagues, left-hander Jon Lester decided to hang up the spikes. While he pitched for five MLB teams over his illustrious career, the Chicago Cubs are one of two franchises he is best associated with. Lester signed with the Cubs in 2015 MLB free agency, playing six seasons on the North Side. He won 77 games with the Cubs, earned two trips to the Mid-Summer Classic and most importantly, helped Chicago win the World Series back in 2016. Here is what the Cubs had to say in a statement about their long-time starter calling it a career.

    David Ortiz’s Red Sox teammate Will Middlebrooks roasts Boston Globe columnist Dan Shaughnessy’s Hall of Fame ballot Former Red Sox World Series champion Will Middlebrooks isn’t afraid to speak his mind on Twitter, which makes for great entertainment for fans who are missing baseball during this endless MLB lockout. During the lockout, teams cannot make any major-league deals. No free-agent signings or blockbuster trades; teams are not even allowed to contact their players. As such, one of the only crumbs of news for fans is the slow reveal of BBWAA writers’ Baseball Hall of Fame ballots, meticulously documented by the Tracker. This week, the Boston Globe‘s seven BBWAA voters revealed their ballots, causing mass hysteria on Twitter when it was revealed that longtime columnist Dan Shaughnessy only voted for Jeff Kent. He was the only Globe voter to exclude David Ortiz, who is currently in his first year of eligibility.Should David Ortiz be in the Baseball Hall of Fame?Ortiz is a three-time World Series champion, 10-time All-Star, 7-time Silver Slugger, and ALCS and World Series MVP.

    Jon Lester announced his retirement from MLB Wednesday, bringing his 16-year run to an end. The 38-year-old is a three-time World Series champion and was one of three active players with 200 career wins (Justin Verlander and Zack Greinke).

    On Wednesday morning, potential Hall of Famer Jon Lester officially announced his retirement from baseball.  We’ve seen the last of starting pitcher Jon Lester in the bigs. After 16 memorable seasons in the majors, Lester announced on Wednesday that he’s officially hanging up his cleats. The man was a fan favorite from start to finish throughout his career. A five-time All-Star selection, Lester is best known for his days with the Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs. As you might have been able to guess, fans have been showering him with love all over social media following his retirement. NEWS at ESPN: 3-time World Series champion Jon Lester is retiring.

    BOSTON (CBS) — After a 16-year career in Major League Baseball that saw him bring World Series titles to both the Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs, Jon Lester has announced his retirement. The 38-year-old lefty called it a career on Wednesday. Lester retires with a 200-117 record and a 3.66 ERA during the regular season, to go along with a 9-7 record and 2.51 ERA during the postseason. Lester won three World Series rings during his career — two with the Red Sox and one with the Cubs — sporting a 4-1 record and a 1.77 ERA in the Fall Classic.

    Ronald Acuña Jr. took batting practice this week in another step in his rehab. The Braves outfielder looks to be making great progress. Acuña Jr. suffered a complete tear of the ACL in his right knee in mid-July of last year while attempting to make a leaping catch. It cost the young outfielder the rest of his season. Yet, Acuña Jr. appears to be close to a full recovery, as he’s posted several batting practice videos. While taking BP is far different than facing live pitching and playing in the outfield every day, it is a start. ¡Ronald Acuña Jr. inició el año con todo! ????????⚾ ????

    Jim Corsi, a universally liked and respected member of the A’s last World Series championship team, died early Tuesday after a battle with cancer. He was 60. The former relief pitcher’s death was first reported by Corsi’s good friend Steve Burton, a sports reporter for Boston’s WBZ-TV, which just aired an emotional interview with Corsi on Monday. “Jim Corsi passed away from cancer peacefully overnight with his family by his side. Way to finish strong Jim. Rest in peace my friend. We love you,” Burton tweeted Tuesday. The Newton, Mass.-born Corsi had told WBZ of his diagnosis of terminal colon cancer and Stage IV liver cancer. “I’m at peace,” Corsi said during the interview. “I know if I die, I’m going to a better place. That’s the No. 1 thing. I feel sorry for everyone that I’ll leave behind.” Corsi spent half of his 10-year major league career with the A’s, including his second season in 1989 when he helped Oakland to its fourth world title. The right-handed Corsi was part of a dominant A’s...
    When the Atlanta Braves were crowned World Series champions last October, you may have thought they deserved it, it has been a while since Atlanta got a title. Their last period was 26 years ago in 1995. While it is true that 26 years of not winning the final prize may seem like a long time, the lucky franchisees may not even come close to having to endure. In fact, such a famine would be in the middle of the pack for a very long time without winning the final prize. Currently, the ball fans in Cleveland are the ones waiting the longest. Since 1948, 73 years ago, the Guardians have not received top honors. It’s been almost three-quarters of a century, that is. However, it is enough that Ohio baseball fans have already tasted such success. The Texas Rangers have not been crowned MLB Champions since being founded in 1961, 61 years ago. The same goes for the Brewers, Patresses and Mariners, who have not yet attained their glory. Although Milwaukee and San Diego dealerships were established in 1969,...
    (CNN)What seems like a not-necessary idea actually turns into a pretty good one with "Around the World in Eighty Days," adapting Jules Verne's novel into an eight-episode Masterpiece series, one already renewed for another voyage. David Tennant plays the unlikely adventurer Phileas Fogg, in a slick retelling that significantly updates and expands the story.Naturally there's a ticking clock (and a terrific score approximating that by Hans Zimmer and Christian Lundberg) as Fogg undertakes his global trek in the 1870s, in an impulsive response to a challenge from Bellamy (Peter Sullivan), an oily member of Fogg's snooty club secretly in desperate need of winning their high-stakes wager.Where this "Eighty Days" stands out, however, is in Fogg's companions. His not-really-a-valet French aide Passepartout (Ibrahim Koma), who, in need of a job, lies to secure the gig; and an ambitious young journalist, Abigail Fortescue (Leonie Benesch), who are both generally more resourceful than the starched English gentleman they're accompanying.The greater latitude and time enhances the travel aspects (after movie versions, featuring David Niven and Jackie Chan, in 1956 and 2004, respectively), while introducing...
    HAPPY New Year to ­readers everywhere.

    The New York Yankees may not spend hundreds of million on Carlos Correa, at least in part due to the quick progression of prospect Anthony Volpe. Volpe is ranked as the Yankees top prospect for a reason. He’s No. 15 on MLB Pipeline’s top prospects in all of baseball. Volpe is saying all the right things with the Yankees still pursuing Correa. Obviously, signing Correa wouldn’t necessarily limit Volpe, as the prospect could still switch positions or even play DH if his bat permits. “I know I probably sound like a broken record, but at the end of the day, whether it happens this year, next year, whatever, I’d just really like to stay in the present and just work every day to try and become that player that one day is that player wins multiple World Series with the Yankees,” Volpe said. Yankees: Is Anthony Volpe worth passing on Carlos Correa?No, not remotely. Volpe could be the second-coming of Babe Ruth, but if you have a chance to sign Ruth and Carlos Correa, you do it anyway! The Yankees...
    After the Atlanta Braves won the 2021 World Series, Freddie Freeman reportedly told Ronald Acuña Jr. he’d run it back to repeat next year with the injured young star. But is that promise realistic? Freeman is still favored to sign with the Atlanta Braves, and as I’ve written several times over, if he does not do so, it’ll be considered a massive failure from Alex Anthopoulos and the front office. However, Freeman has interest from the Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees and elsewhere — he’d be a great fit for pretty much every team in baseball. If the Braves don’t act quickly after the MLB lockout — a stagnant time period in which every front office has had time to gather and make a coherent plan for the remainder of free agency — some other franchise will make Freeman their own. Braves: Freddie Freeman made Ronald Acuña Jr. a promiseWhen Freeman and Acuña Jr. embraced on the field after the Braves won the World Series, the two reportedly shared the following exchange, per Jeff Passan. “We did it,” Acuña told...
    Share this: This is December’s happy birthday column. There are several Boys of Summer who were born in the winter month of December. From them I’ve picked Billy Loes (12/13/29). Loes was an unusual and underrated pitcher who probably would have gone totally unnoticed had he not been as daffy as he was. He had a bit of Yogi Berra in him. In his obit, the NY Times said he came, “…with an image as an eccentric that seemed a perfect fit for a franchise long known for its colorful characters… I remember Loes because he was the first person who wasn’t in a gang that I saw wearing a motorcycle jacket. He had the hog to go with it, sometimes sporting dark, dark sunglasses. I remember him also because we shared the same name so of course I had to follow him. Before we get to his daffiness of mouth, let’s be sure we understand that he was a very, very good pitcher. Loes was in the rotation of three pennant winning Dodger teams and pitched in three World...
    This year has been a strange one for the environment in many different ways. We have made progress in certain areas while not getting anywhere in others. The COP26 was held this year, which produced a few promising changes among some of the world’s leaders. But some important environmental topics, such as the impact of animal agriculture on climate change, were still not discussed nearly enough.  That being said, there were a few great environment and animal movies, documentaries, and series released this year. They all did their part to spread awareness and draw attention to big environmental issues. 1. Earthshot: Repairing Our Planet Earthshot is a five-part series with each episode focusing on one environmental problem that the planet is facing. These challenges include restoring nature, cleaning our air, reviving the oceans, building a waste-free world, and fixing the climate.

This is the perfect climate change series to watch in order to understand the challenges that...

Despite the fact that life is still not entirely back to normal from the pandemic, it has become considerably more normal than 2021 was. The COP26 was recently assembled, giving us some new hope for climate-changing plans being put into place for the future. Yet, some important solutions have still been overlooked even with the current climate crisis becoming direr. With that being said, these new movies, films, and documentaries put a bright spot in 2021. Giving us a look into nature and the beautiful world of the animals around us. 1.

    The venue that hosts the College World Series is getting some new branding. What was once known as “TD Ameritrade Park” will be getting a new name. The stadium that hosts the College World Series is officially getting a new name. College baseball fans should bid a fond farewell to “TD Ameritrade Park” and give a nice, warm greeting to “Charles Schwab Field.” In a news release published Monday, the Charles Schwab Corporation announced that it would hold on to the naming rights to the venue where the College World Series is played until at least 2029. According to the news release, Charles Schwab got those naming rights as part of the deal when it bought the Omaha-based TD Ameritrade.

    (CBS)– NBA superstar Kevin Durant is one of the top basketball players in the world, but he wasn’t always considered the best during his youth basketball days. KD’s youth hoops experience was the inspiration for a new TV show from AppleTV+ called “Swagger,” which is produced by CBS Studios. Durant is an executive producer on the series that explores the world of youth basketball and the players, their families and the coaches. The series is written, executive produced and directed by NAACP Image Award Winner Reggie Rock Bythewood. CBS’ DJ Sixsmith spoke with Bythewood about turning Durant’s AAU basketball experience into a TV show, why he wanted this series to hold a mirror up to society and how he was able to make the basketball look authentic on the show.

The Braves split $32.57 million into 66 full shares, 14.25 partial shares and 38 cash awards, the commissioner’s office said Friday.
