Blue Jackets Development Camp started today with 32 prospects skating at the Ice Haus under the watchful eye of almost just as many Columbus staffers.
Right wing Seth Ambroz had 40 goals, 30 assists and 135 penalty minutes in his career at the University of Minnesota.
Had Seth Ambroz realized before Sunday that he would be the dean of the Blue Jackets development camp, he would have left his razor on the shelf. “I wish I would have known that,” Ambroz said Monday after the opening day of camp at the Ice Haus. “I would have probably kept my beard and looked a little more grizzled.”
New Lakers D’Angelo Russell, right, Anthony Brown, left, and Larry Nance arrive for a news conference.
D’Angelo Russell was the No. 2 pick in the NBA draft, and he chose the No. 1 jersey with the Los Angeles Lakers. The point guard from Ohio State clearly isn’t trying to hide from the enormous expectations resting on his 19-year-old shoulders.
Rico Abreu, who had a birth defect that affected his bone growth, is transitioning from racing on dirt tracks to asphalt.
Exiting a stock car usually is one of the most awkward times for even the greatest of NASCAR drivers. There are no doors and the window opening might as well be a keyhole. A driver must grab a piece of the roof with the right or left hand, throw the left leg through the opening, swing the right leg out the car and, with a bit of squirming, hopefully land on his feet.
U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo, directing traffic during a match against Sweden, hasn’t seen much action while recording four straight shutouts.
MONTREAL — Hope Solo has disappeared from the World Cup. Make no mistake: She has started every match for the U.S. women’s national soccer team ahead of tonight’s World Cup semifinal against Germany at Olympic Stadium. On and off the field, though, there are few signs of her. For both the team and the player, that is a welcome development.
Clippers right-hander Jordan Cooper showed no ill effects Monday night from a blister on a finger on his throwing hand that landed him on the disabled list on June 21.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Somewhere around the fourth inning, Cody Anderson realized he was chasing perfection. “I kind of knew that everything was going pretty smooth,” the Cleveland Indians rookie right-hander said Monday after taking a bid for a perfect game into the seventh inning of his second major league start. “I just tried to keep throwing strikes and keep the approach the same.”
Billy Hamilton steals third base in the second inning. Hamilton leads the majors with 40 steals.
CINCINNATI — Billy Hamilton ran the Minnesota Twins into a hole so big they couldn’t get out of it. The speedy leadoff hitter scored three times in the first three innings Monday to help Cincinnati open a huge lead, and the Reds held on for an 11-7 victory over the Twins.
It might not be much of a fair fight tonight when Crew SC heads to Florida with a spot in the U.S. Open Cup quarterfinals at stake. Fellow Major League Soccer club Orlando City is expected to field a first-choice lineup buoyed by six days of rest from competition and playing at home.
