Its a natural desire for parents to support their childs dreams, no matter the cost. Nic Dowd Jersey . But experts say there are ways parents can make their kids participation in sports more positive and avoid sacrificing their own financial security.-ENCOURAGE MULTIPLE SPORTS: Parents are often told that a child with potential should participate in intense or year-round programs to build that skill. But studies show early specialization does more harm than good. It increases the risk of overuse in developing bodies, causes kids to burn out on sports and decreases overall athletic development, according to Aspen Institutes Project Play, an effort to make sports accessible to all.-COMMUNICATE REGULARY: Check in with kids about what they really want to do. Some crave a competitive environment and others dont want to be pushed into that pipeline, says Travis Dorsch, founding director of the Families in Sport Lab at Utah State University. Its often parents, not kids, that find and suggest these elite teams, he said. And children, attuned to underlying messages, often provide answers based on what the parents want to hear. He suggests checking with kids weekly, monthly and seasonally to make sure they are still having fun and engaged.-SUPPORT FREE PLAY: Forget practice and drills -- engaging in free or loosely structured play is important, says Tom Farrey of the Aspen Institute. Kid-led activities are important in making sports fun and building creativity. Need convincing? Farrey points out that free play was important to athletes like Michael Jordan and Brazilian soccer stars who played pickup games in their neighborhoods.-MANAGE EXPECTATIONS: Odds are against a child going to the Olympics, going pro or even playing in college. Thats no reflection on the parents. Sociologist Jay Coakley says many parents have been conditioned to view their childs achievements -- at school, on the field or elsewhere -- as a measure of their worth as a parent. Parents should recognize what messages they are listening to internally when making decisions. He suggests providing children with an array of experiences and some autonomy to pursue and enjoy whatever their interests are.-DONT DISMISS ACADEMICS: Parents who really want their kid to get college paid for should get a biology tutor, not a sports coach, says Mark Hyman of George Washington University. Academics might be compromised for intense training, but school studies provide more opportunity for scholarships and are important to lifelong success.-REMEMBER FINANCIAL NEEDS: Parents need to pay the bills each month and have a nest egg when they retire. Its not bad to spend on sports or even elite teams, but athletic and financial experts say parents need to find what works for their lives. As much as parents are committed to their kids and their dreams, they should be committed to their own financial prospects. Jeff Zatkoff Kings Jersey .

Even if we would have lost, this is way beyond it.Todays celebration is very, very important for his teammates, coaches and the whole franchise, the city. That guy is special. Even if we would have lost, it would have been an emotional night. Im emotional now and it hasnt even started.Duncan retired in the offseason after winning five championships and two MVPs in 19 seasons, all with San Antonio.For us, its harder for us to stay focused for this game, Spurs guard Danny Green said. Coming in, we knew it was going to be a lot of fun, but we wanted to be focused and respect New Orleans.Duncans style of play earned him the nickname The Big Fundamental, and the Spurs honored him with their own rather seamless performance against the Pelicans.San Antonio had six players score in double figures, got 31 assists on 42 baskets, committed just 13 turnovers and shot 49 percent from the field.Our physical effort was pretty good, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said.

Anthony Davis was limited to 12 points on 5-of-12 shooting.The Pelicans lost for the eighth time in 10 games.Were very inconsistent, Davis said. One game we play well offensively, defensively were talking, and another game were not. Weve got to figure out what team we want to be identified as. We cant keep going game from game with a different identity. Weve got to come out the same way.TIP-INSPelicans: F Solomon Hill missed the game to be with his wife after the birth of their first child. ... Quincy Pondexter has not played this season after having arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in March 2016. ...

TAMPA, Fla. Alvaro Morata Jersey . -- Tampa Bay Buccaneers center Joe Hawley has accused a Seattle Seahawks player of spitting in his face Sunday at Raymond James Stadium.Speaking Thursday on the Joe Hawley Show on Tampa Bay Sports Radio 620 WDAE, Hawley said he believes rookie Jarran Reed was the culprit.Yeah I think thats who it was, Hawley said of Reed, though he wasnt 100 percent certain. They were hitting me late and then one guy got up, and when I came up all fired up, he actually spit in my face after one of the plays. And that really got me fired up because I just dont think that should be a part of the game at all.Reed on Friday denied that he spit in Hawleys face.I dont know why he would think that, bring that allegation towards me, Reed said. I saw something saying we were hitting them late. ... You can go back and watch the film. You will see. If he thinks hes a clean player, then I dont know what to tell you. ?But as far as the allegations that I spit in his face, thats not true. Show me the play. Show me why I did it. Then you can say something. But other than that, I just think its funny.I thought we were all grown men. I think its pretty funny. He sounds like a 14-year-old girl, Oh he spit in my face and all that.The Bucs won 14-5 thanks to two early touchdown throws from Jameis Winston to Mike Evans?but struggled to move the ball for the remainder of the game against a stout Seahawks defense.I mean, its one thing thing [to be] pushing, shouting, yelling. But as soon as he spit in my face, I was pretty fired up about that, Hawley said. Hes a young guy. I guess he just -- thats not the way to do it.At one point during the game, after the Seahawks made a stop on third-and-2, Hawley had to be restrained from Reed and other Seahawks players who were pushing and shoving. No flags were thrown, however.Hawley said he thinks Seahawks players were frustrated with Tampa Bays physical play.The way we were playing -- we decided we were gonna play hard and get after them because we knew thats the way they played, he said. And I think they were surprised when that happened, so they tried to talk about it and then we continued to do it and they started getting chippy with it. I just dont think they were used to the way we were playing, how hard we were playing. I guess they were the only ones who thought they were allowed to play like that.Said Reed:?I guess he couldnt block a rookie the way he wanted to. So Id be pretty pissed too. Hey, I guess he needs to do a better job.ESPN Seahawks reporter Sheil Kapadia contributed to this report. Custom Real Madrid Jersey . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- With the Olympics just a few weeks away, Brazil faces a litany of problems: an economy in freefall, the Zika virus and a political crisis with an impeached president. But for those brave -- or foolhardy -- enough to make the trip, Rio de Janeiro is a city rich with potential rewards. Broadcasters have already deemed the citys backdrop for the Summer Games the most telegenic ever. But no matter how good this teeming seaside metropolis -- where the urban jungle and the literal jungle meet -- looks on TV, footage simply cant compare with the experience of actually being here.Heres a Q&A on tips for visiting Rio, from staying safe to samba parties:---Q: Is Rio safe?A: With an estimated 85,000 police and soldiers patrolling the streets during the games -- twice the security contingent in London in 2012 -- Olympic and local officials have insisted Rio will be the safest city on earth during the Aug. 5-21 games. Still, violent crime is a fact of life in this city, starkly divided between haves and have nots, so its best to keep a low profile.For Cariocas, as Rios 6 million residents are called, low-key dressing is de rigueur for both safety and practicality. Havaianas, the Brazilian flip-flop brand, are Rios uncontested footwear of choice. And the citys golden-sand beaches make board shorts and T-shirts, or hot pants and tank tops, a uniform for rich and poor alike. (While Rios Southern Hemisphere winters tend to be mild, thermometers can dip in August into what Cariocas consider the bone-chilling depths of the mid-60s, so pack a sweater or light jacket.)Watches and jewelry not clearly made from plastic are best avoided, as is using cellphones in public or conspicuously carrying camera equipment. Electronics are extremely expensive in Brazil, and a smartphone can cost several months worth of salary for locals, so its best to keep them under wraps.If you do get mugged, dont react or fight. Hand over your possessions calmly and without hesitation. Its only money and/or stuff. And no matter how much of a pain the ensuing nightmare of card cancellations proves, its not worth getting injured.---Q: Do people speak English?A: In a word, no. Outside Olympic venues and high-end hotels and restaurants, most Cariocas only speak Portuguese, though they might know a few words of English or Spanish. On the other hand, most people are eager to help foreigners and will resort even to pantomime to get their point across.---Q: Whats for dinner?A: If you go to one of the myriad churrascaria (shoe-hass-car-EE-ya) all-you-can-eat Brazilian barbeque joints, the answer is meat, meat and more meat. Roving waters brandishing spits stacked with cuts of prime beef, lamb chops, pork sausages and even wizened black chicken hearts will insist on refilling your plate till you verge on bursting.For vegetarians or those recovering from a meat overdose, options are limited. Best bets include corner juice bars offfering a cornucopia of freshly squeezed tropical fruit juices, as well as acai (ah-sa-EE) -- a deep purple Amazonian palm berry thats frozen, blended and served slushy. Vans Sk8 Hi White. ---Q: Is there public transportation?A: The citys metro line is being extended to serve the beachfront Leblon neighborhood and reach the far-western Barra da Tijuca neighborhood, where Olympic Park is located. But the project is behind schedule and may not be finished in time for the games. Buses are confusing, packed, dangerous and generally best avoided. Cabs are plentiful and decently reliable -- just make sure your cabby turns headlights on after dark. (Many wont.)---Q: Besides sports, what is there to do in Rio during the games?A: Plenty. And the good news is, the best things in Rio are free.Rio was hard hit by the recession, with the economy shrinking last year by 4 percent, sending unemployment and inflation soaring. The nosedive of the local currency, the real, has made Rio much cheaper for visitors spending dollars or euros. But the cost of hotels and restaurants can still be shocking. Savvy travelers can staunch the bloodletting by taking advantage of the citys many free attractions:-Sugarloaf Mountain: The sheer granite outcropping that presides over the waters of the Guanabara Bay will no doubt prove a breathtaking backdrop for the Olympic sailing races. But rather than just ogling the iconic rock, why not hike it? A guide is necessary to scale the Sugarloaf itself, but its stumpier twin, the Morro da Urca, is doable without help. A mud path winds through tropical vegetation to a summit with peerless views over the citys dense patchwork of towers, hillside favela slums and mist-enshrouded rainforest.-Sunset at Arpoador: Take in the suns spectacular nightly performance as it sinks into the Atlantic from atop the Arpoador rock formation in between Copacabana and Ipanema Beaches. The crowd there raucously applauds the glittering show, night after night.-Pedra do Sal: Experience a roda de samba, or live samba music, at the birthplace of Brazils most famous musical genre. Monday nights bring hordes of aficionados to this former slave market in the Gamboa region of historic downtown for an open-air dance party.-Centro: Rios beaches tend to steal the thunder, but the Centro downtown region, where the city got its start 451 years ago, is a treasure trove of colonial-era churches and historic monuments. Perhaps the most stunning among them is the Mosteiro Sao Bento, a Baroque church and working monastery where monks perform Gregorian chants during Sunday Mass. Get there early to snag a seat. Also in Centro is the Portuguese Royal Reading Room, a 19th century gem of soaring jacaranda hardwood bookshelves and stained glass windows, tucked into the newly rehabilitated Praca Tirdentes.

Heather Hardy is one of boxings most popular female fighters. Marco Parolo Italy Jersey . She has a dedicated fan base in her hometown of New York and is coming off her biggest win -- yet she has no idea when she might fight next.Because of the new insurance law that recently went into effect in her home state, her promoter, Lou DiBella, canceled the remaining cards he was planning there this year on Friday.In a nationally televised fight, Hardy won a majority decision over then-unbeaten rival Shelly Vincent at the Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island in Brooklyn. There has not been a professional boxing show in New York since that card Aug. 21, and there are none scheduled, putting a major dent into the careers of boxers who fight in New York and promoters who put on cards there.Star Boxing promoter Joe DeGuardia already canceled his Oct. 14 card at the Paramount in Huntington on Long Island, where he has been doing regular club cards for years. On Friday, DiBella announced that he has canceled the remaining cards he was planning for the year, including a Dec. 16 date he had on hold for a show at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, a show Hardy was supposed to box on.The law (the one legalizing MMA in the state) that went into effect in New York includes new insurance regulations, including dramatically increased premiums that promoters must pay in order to run a show. Minimum coverage went from $10,000 to $50,000 for general medical coverage per fighter on each card, a change most promoters had no issue with and conforms to the norm in many other states. But the law also requires a new unprecedented $1 million minimum requirement for each fighter in the event the fighter suffers a traumatic brain injury, a very rare occurrence.Even if promoters could take on the added financial burden of the increased insurance premiums -- they are expected to only impact the smaller club shows -- there has yet to be any insurance company authorized by the state to offer such a policy and it does not appear that, despite the efforts of various promoters and the New York State Athletic Commission, a policy offer is imminent.The NYSAC said it expects at least two companies to soon begin offering policies, but it is unlikely to happen in time to salvage any boxing dates in the state for the remainder of the year and it could stretch the states boxing blackout into 2017.The issue is a serious burden for Hardy (18-0, 4 KOs), and many other fighters who are basically out of work since they fight primarily in New York, where they earn money from their base purses in addition to a percentage of the tickets they sell.These new insurance restrictions are not just destroying the sport of boxing in New York, they are destroying my livelihood, Hardy said. Do you have any idea what life looks like for a professional boxer, especially one who is a female and a single parent? With these new laws, fewer shows and dates being moved or canceled, I dont know how Im going to survive at all, let alone the upcoming holiday season. Im going to have to go back to delivering books and answering phones to try to cover the bills.September marked the first time in more than 11 years that there was a full calendar month without a professional boxing card in New York.DiBella has moved his Broadway Boxing series, a staple of the New York fight scene, out of state. He has a card on Nov. 19 at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut, and on Dec. 2 at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, but that is of little solace to the fighters he promotes who call New York home and earn a portion of their purse by selling tickets to their hometown fans.There is such a rich history of boxing in New York, DiBella said. And now the sport has, for all intents and purposes, been evicted by a legislature willfully ignorant of both the boxing and insurance industries. The actions of the powers that be in Albany and their political appointees are depriving New York state residents in the sport of boxing from their livelihoods. This is hitting boxers very hard, as most struggle to pay their bills and need to be active.Small businesses are being put at jeopardy with no recourse or ability to continue plying their trade. This is a disgraceful abuse of legislative and state power.The NYSAC could modify the law, which reads, The commission may from time to time, promulgate regulations to adjust the amount of such minimum limits. But the law went into effect in September with the commission declining to modify the $1 million minimum for coverage requirement, which promoters call arbitrary. The commission said at the time it did not plan to make any changes.The New York State Athletic Commission voted to approve the final regulations governing combat sports in New York State. NYSACs primary objective is to ensure the safest environment for combative sports in the nation so that combat athletes competing in New York State incur the fewest and least severe injuries possible, commission spokesman Laz Benitez told ESPN in a statement. While some combative sports industry professionals expressed concern over the premiums for the $1 million coverage, these amounts are as yet determined.However, from discussions with insurers about to enter the market, we believe the costs will be reasonable. Ultimately, the frequency and severity of life-threatening brain injuries incurred in New York State will drive the premiums. NYSAC believes the best way to keep premiums down is to keep injuries to a minimum.DiBella said he had no choice but to cancel shows because of the law and the lack of a policy being offered yet.It is incumbent upon either the legislature or commission to take a long look at what theyve done and fix it, he said. If there is an honest intention to continue boxing in the state, there must be a modification of the required limits. I have had endless conversations with insurance brokers and underwriters and any narrative being spun suggesting that a policy with an affordable premium will be in place soon is flatly wrong and not helping restore boxing in New York.I have several dates on hold with the New York State Athletic Commission in January 2017 and beyond and I look forward to bringing world-class boxing back to New York, but I must have both the assurance that it is legally possible to satisfy the insurance requirements and proper time to promote a show.

Gather a group of friends, or find a league to join online, draft your team, set your lineup and compete in a number of different formats.PHOENIX - Arizonas Ian Kennedy dropped his appeal and began serving his 10-game suspension Monday. The team made the announcement just before the start of Monday nights game against Miami, which the Diamondbacks lost 3-2. Kennedy got the most severe of the six suspensions stemming from the brawl between the Diamondbacks and Dodgers in Los Angeles last Tuesday. He was suspended after hitting Yasiem Puig and Zack Greinke with high inside pitches, the latter one triggering the bench-clearing melee. Kennedy started Sundays game in San Diego, leaving with no decision in a 4-1 Arizona loss. The right-hander, a 211-game winner two seasons ago, is 3-4 with a 5. Manolo Gabbiadini Italy Jersey. 21 ERA. With off days included, Kennedy will miss one start and could have his second start pushed back a day to June 29, when hes eligible to return. Kennedy said he and manager Kirk Gibson spoke "and we felt like this is the right time, the right thing for the team." "Just to go through with it, and myself I felt the same thing," Kennedy said. "I kept on getting questions every single day and my teammates and everybody else. So I figured it was the best thing for the team so we could put it past us.

Mississippi doesnt have much time to sulk after its marquee Labor Day matchup against Florida State didnt go the way it had hoped. Derick Brassard Rangers Jersey .The 19th-ranked Rebels didnt return to campus until 4 a.m. on Tuesday and then had to quickly begin preparation for its home opener on Saturday against Wofford.The Terriers -- who play at the Football Championship Subdivision level -- will provide a different challenge with their throwback triple-option offense that is rarely seen in todays college football world.It is totally different, coach Hugh Freeze said. Usually you would like to have two weeks to get ready for (the triple option) and we basically have two days. We just have to correct the mistakes and hopefully stay healthy.Ole Miss is hurting both mentally and physically after the season-opening loss to No. 3 Florida State in Orlando. The Rebels had a 28-6 lead in the second quarter before giving up the next 33 points and losing control of the game.Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly -- who threw four touchdown passes, but also had three interceptions and lost a fumble -- acknowledged it wasnt the easiest loss to forget.There are little things that definitely frustrate you because you could be sitting here 1-0, Kelly said. It hurts but youve got to get by it and now were looking forward to the next game.The Rebels are also trying to figure out solutions after two injuries. Starting cornerback Kendarius Webster and running back Eric Swinney are out for the season after both tore knee ligaments.Webster was widely considered the Rebels best cornerback. Freeze said he expected Webster to play about 95 percent of the snaps prior to the injury, and when he went down in the first quarter it hurt the Rebels pass defense.Senior Carlos Davis moves into a starting role in Websters absence.Ole Miss was already thin at running back because junior Jordan Wilkins was declared academically ineligible just before the season started. Now the Rebels will likely lean on Akeem Judd and Eugene Brazley for the majority of the carries. Freeze also said that freshman DVaughn Pennamon would likely join the rotation instead of redshirting like previously planned.Freeze said there were plenty of positives to take from the Florida State game, even if the final outcome wasnt good. He said the fact that the Rebels were leading 28-6 in the second quarter is proof they can play with anyone.The trick is sustaining it for four quarters.Ole Miss needs to fix its issues quickly. The Rebels have crucial game against Alabama on Sept. 17 and Georgia on Sept. 24.I think you build on the positives, but also address the reasons we couldnt get it done, Freeze said.

The 25-year-old Japanese star has officially been posted by his club team, the Rakuten Golden Eagles. India 358 for 5 (Rahul 158, Pujara 46, Chase 2-91) lead West Indies 196 by 162 runsScorecard and ball-by-ball detailsFlawless innings are fairly rare in Test cricket. After all, the bowler gets to dictate some of the terms too. KL Rahul listened to them patiently, respected them when they made good points but did not cede his upper hand. His career-best 158 thrust India into the lead.At the other end was Cheteshwar Pujara, who spent a full hour running away from making runs. He was 18 off 57 overnight and stayed on 18 until he faced his 92nd ball of the match. Much was made of his run-out after lunch. Facing 159 balls and being dismissed in that fashion evokes critique but there were mitigating circumstances.Runs and records awaited anyone willing to show a little application on this Sabina Park pitch. But like a grandparent doting on their favourite grandkid in the middle of a party, it did embarrass them on the odd occasion. Notably, when Pujara nudged a short delivery from Jason Holder into the leg side. He meant for it to go a lot finer, but the ball had come onto the bat slower than expected and went off it in the same way, allowing Roston Chase, who was in front of square, to cut across and throw the stumps down. Pujara, who was face-down on the ground at the non-strikers end, knew all his hard work had come undone by one dreadful mistake.Meanwhile, Rahul kept cruising. He had driven extremely well and by now wasnt afraid to extend the arms and hit over the top. A good IPL - whether it makes one ready for international cricket or not - certainly does wonders to his confidence. Rahul had outshone Chris Gayle in the last season and his attacking game was on point in Kingston.West Indies, it seemed, were at the other end. There was no ambition. They did not take the new ball when it was available and instead fed a new batsman with spin. Considering that new batsman was Virat Kohli, who is susceptible to the seamers outside the off stump, it was quite baffling. With very little resistance, a ninth - out of 14 - Indian partnership crossed 50 in this series.Things changed after tea. West Indies took the new ball and put it in Shannon Gabriels hands. With him coming back from an ankle injury, it seemed like his team was perennially juggling chances of victory with those of him going out of commission again. Hamstring trouble for Miguel Cummins complicated matters further; the debutant was the only one to consistently aim at the stumps. Ask Pujara, who was beaten on the inside edge, outside edge and rapped on his top hand.Gabriel had had nine overs downtime when the new ball had become available, but the additional respite seemed to have helped since he took out Rahul and troubled Kohli too. The India captain had been perturbed by outswingers - 8 off 33 at one point - and while his guard was up for that, he couldnt prevent an inswinger thudding into the pads. Heighht saved him in umpire Aleem Dars judgment. J.T. Miller Jersey. West Indies got Kohli and R Ashwin in the final hour of play but Ajinkya Rahane took the lead past 150.Things were better in the morning. There werent many runs scored - 59 in 26 overs; there werent many fans around - sad for a Sunday; there were no wickets but there was a contest.With clear skies welcoming the players on the second day, the likelihood of the ball seaming about had reduced. It was time to go back to camping just outside off stump for as long as it took to spot the rare, flirty Indian outside edge. Gabriel found one in his second over, but it didnt carry to second slip.Rahuls scariest moment came when the length was much shorter, a 144 kph delivery that seamed in at his ribs. He probably assumed the line was a lot wider and committed into a cut shot and only barely avoided being caught behind. Gabriel was the aggrieved bowler, and fit the profile too, with a look that loosely translated to where are my *$&#^ wickets? His first spell was five overs - the longest he has bowled on the trot in this series - and gave away only three runs.The last time India played in Jamaica a Rahul scored a century. So it was again when this Rahul came down the track and smacked the offspin of Chase into the stands at long-on. It was a shot definitive of the knock, showing how the batsman had read the threat of the ball early and how firm he was with his footwork. The only thing it didnt make clear was how effective he had been in keeping the good ones out. A delighted fist-pump, an authoritative raise of his bat and a hug from M Vijay, who came out with drinks, were part of the celebrations.Coming into the Jamaica Test, Rahuls top five scores in descending order read: 110, 108, 16, 7, 5. Symptoms of a good player, but a nervous starter. So even with the 75 runs he had overnight, there were questions that needed answering. West Indies had a set plan at the start - the extra pace of Gabriel allied to Holders wide-outside-off lines to restrict run flow and create pressure. An anxious batsman could have been led into a mistake, but Rahul was careful. And decisive too - when he went back, he went right back. When he went forward, he was more or less meeting the ball on the half-volley. Not since Mohammad Azharuddin in 1984-85 had an India batsman converted his first three fifties into hundreds.Rahul is working towards making himself undroppable. Vijay, currently injured, Kohli and Rahane are Indias best Test batsmen. Shikhar Dhawan has shown an improved judgement outside his off stump, an area he had previously struggled with. Pujara hits big hundreds, his inability to do so on Sunday hurt him. Will it hurt his chances for the next too? One of them cant make an Indian XI with five bowlers.

NEW YORK -- The owner of a training and sports medicine clinic sued Major League Baseball and several of its employees Thursday, claiming they caused the companys social media accounts to be illegally hacked during the sports Biogenesis investigation. Tie Domi Maple Leafs Jersey Authentic .Neiman Nix, a 29th-round draft pick of the Cincinnati Reds in 1998, and his DNA Sports Performance Lab, claimed an MLB investigator misrepresented herself as law enforcement and MLB intimidated the companys clients and hacked accounts on YouTube, Facebook and PayPal. The allegations are similar to those filed in a suit two years ago that was dismissed.Vincent White, Nixs new lawyer, said former MLB investigator Ed Dominguez is cooperating and will testify MLB employees illegally gained access to electronic accounts of individuals they investigated through various exploits and phishing schemes. We believe these tactics may have extended to players, team staff and ownership groups.The suit admits Nix and his company used Bioidentical Insulin like Growth Factor (IGF-1), which is derived from elk antlers and is on baseballs list of banned substances.MLB called the suit frivolous.Mr. Whites purported source for this lawsuit is a disgruntled former MLB employee who was terminated for cause, it said in a statement. Mr. White has been threatening to file this lawsuit for months in an attempt to coerce MLB into paying his client. MLB considers the allegations in this lawsuit, including the allegations relating to the hacking of DNA Sport Labs social media accounts, to be sanctionable under New York law.Nix and his lab sued MLB, Major League Baseball Properties, Major League Baseball Enterprises, then Commissioner Bud Selig and MLB investigator Awilda Santana on Feb. 18, 2014, in Florida state court, alleging defamation, slander and tortious interference. MLB senior vice president of investigations Dan Mullin and senior director of investigations George Hanna also were defendants.The case was dismissed that Nov. 6 by Circuit Judge John W. Thornton, who said the plaintiffs and their lawyers never served the suit on the defendants and failed to show up for scheduled case management conferences.Thornton wrote this courts patience is at an end and then added, referring to the time it took for the case: TWO HUNDRED SIXTY ONE (261) to perfect service in this case. At no times has a summons in this case ever been issued. He also said the plaintiffs and their lawyers failed to show up for scheduled case management conferences.At that time the case wasnt ripe, White said. Frankly, the cooperation of the investigators we have today makes or breaks this matter.The new suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, claims tortious interference under Florida and New York law and lists MLB, Selig, new commissioner Rob Manfred and Santana as defendants along with MLB vice president of information security Neil Boland.Mullin and Hannah were terminated by MLB two years ago.White did not identify others in addition to Dominguez who were cooperating.Mr. Dominguez is the most outspoken but we expect other investigators, based on our communications with them, to also be testifying, he said.White also represents former Mets closer Jenrry Mejia, who was banned for life in February following his third positive drug test.The Biogenesis investigation led to the suspensions of more than a dozen players, including Yankees star Alex Rodriguez.

The deal is pending a physical, assistant general manager Bobby Evans said. Traded from Seattle to Baltimore on Aug. 30, Morse also can play first base and right field to give manager Bruce Bochy some flexibility in writing his lineup.RICHMOND, Va. -- Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall said Tuesday he has sprained ligaments in the back of his right ankle and could miss the rest of training camp. "I cant put any pressure on it. Its kind of funky. Ive never had this particular injury before," Hall said. "It could take a couple of days, it could take a couple of weeks, so theyre cool with me just sitting down for now and give it time to rest and heal up." Hall wore an immobilizing boot as he watched practice. He was hurt Monday when he lost his footing trying to defend rookie free agent receiver Skye Dawson, who has been one of the surprise standouts of camp. "The young guy, he ran a great route," Hall said. "Coming out of my break, something just gave out." Hall said he initially thought he tore a ligament. He said there is no fracture, and that his Achilles is fine. "A lot of guys were joking, Yeah, you wanted a day off. Im like, Yeah, I wanted a day off, but not like this," he said. Hall becomes the fourth Redskins defensive player to suffer a significant setback since the opening of camp. Defensive end Adam Carriker had a third surgery on his right knee and is expected to be sidelined another four to five months. Linebacker Keenan Robinson is out at least three months with a torn left pectoral muscle, and defensive end Jarvis Jenkkins was hit with a four-game suspension after testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug. Johnny Bower Maple Leafs Jersey Authentic. The Redskins worked out veteran linebacker Nick Barnett on Tuesday. They gave linebacker Joe Mays on workout on Saturday, but Mays agreed to terms with the Houston Texans. Also Tuesday, left tackle Trent Williams sprained his left wrist when he fell while blocking a play during the afternoon practice. The wrist was heavily taped as he walked off the field. "Its really nothing, though," he said. "Just stunned a little bit. Ill be fine." Several other players missed all or part of practice for various injury-related reasons. Receiver Donte Stallworth, guard Adam Gettis and linebacker Jeremy Kimbrough are nursing hamstring injuries. Safety Brandon Meriweather is still recovering from a torn ACL in his right knee, and running back Chris Thompson continues to feel the effects of a torn ACL in his left knee. Safety Jordan Pugh left early because he "wasnt feeling very good," according to Shanahan. Also, running back Tristan Davis, who has been on the practice squads for six NFL teams but has never appeared in a regular season game, has left the team. "Tristan Davis came to my office earlier this morning and said that his heart wasnt in playing football anymore," Shanahan said. "So he retired."

An anxious batsman could have been led into a mistake, but Rahul was careful. And decisive too - when he went back, he went right back. When he went forward, he was more or less meeting the ball on the half-volley. Not since Mohammad Azharuddin in 1984-85 had an India batsman converted his first three fifties into hundreds.Rahul is working towards making himself undroppable. Vijay, currently injured, Kohli and Rahane are Indias best Test batsmen. Shikhar Dhawan has shown an improved judgement outside his off stump, an area he had previously struggled with. Pujara hits big hundreds, his inability to do so on Sunday hurt him. Will it hurt his chances for the next too? One of them cant make an Indian XI with five bowlers.
