The trade deadline is next Friday, and the deals have begun. Get the scoop on those, plus other happenings from around MLB—a cycle, a standout performance from a hitter—in my latest recap.
Steve and I kickoff our 2015 college football preview by talking to a member of the University of Miami coaching staff, who provides an inside look at the Canes and the rest of the ACC. Unlike the conference’s media guide, this podcast is suitable for work.
As I’ve mentioned here before, I keep the tickets from sporting events I attend. Come visit my Sports Memorabilia Room and you can page through the four binders filled with tickets and my comments on the games. Notables include the 1996 World Series clincher, the 2007 Rose Bowl, and the 2013 MLB All-Star Game. What you won’t find is the ticket from the first game I ever went to. What’s worse, I don’t even know what my first game was. I didn’t think to start saving my tickets until I was about 10—perhaps the age I was able to hold on to my own ticket at a game—there is no record to check.
Thanks to MVP Mike Trout and a host of other young stars, the American League won Tuesday’s All-Star Game. Cincinnati’s Todd Frazier won the Home Run Derby in his home park. Read more about those “things,” and more, in my latest MLB recap for CBS Local.
As wearable technology becomes more prevalent for both recreational and professional athletes, Steve and I talk with health and technology expert Jane Sarasohn-Kahn about the Internet of Things. HIPAA and concussions, as they relate to sports, are also discussed. Jane blogs at healthpopuli.com and tweets @healthythinker. We are @AndrewKahn and @StephenKahn12
How about that Pirates-Padres game? Exciting from start to finish, it included a robbed home run and an groundskeeper getting swallowed by the tarp. I cover that, as well as preview the All-Star events in my latest recap for CBS Local.
Three star pitchers who had different injuries make their season debut on Thursday. Steven Matz of the Mets made his major league debut earlier in the week, and a Cleveland pitcher came within one strike of a no-hitter. Hitters get their share of attention in my latest MLB recap, too — Prince Fielder hit a milestone homer this week and MLB announced changes to the Home Run Derby.
