Bohannon’s late run helps No. 20 Iowa hold off Indiana 77-72
Iowa’s Jordan Bohannon waited patiently for his chances Thursday.
When they came, the junior guard delivered a seemingly bigger blow with each successive shot.
The junior guard matched his season-high by scoring 25 points including the last 11 to help the No. 20 Iowa hold on for a crucial 77-72 victory at Indiana.
“We really wanted to get it to him, we wanted to get him open and that’s what you want to do down the stretch,” coach Fran McCaffery said. “We were trying to milk the clock with the lead and he just stepped up and made some.”
While the Hawkeyes (18-5, 7-5 Big Ten) didn’t play their best ball, the combination of Tyler Cook early and Bohannon late was all Iowa needed Thursday.
Cook had 13 points, five rebounds and three assists in the first half, staking Iowa to a 46-36 halftime lead. He finished with 21 points and seven rebounds as Luka Garza spent most of the game in foul trouble.
Bohannon’s closing flurry was even better.
Twice in the final 91 seconds, he beat the shot clock with demoralizing, long 3-pointers and then he finished it off by making five of six free throws in the 27 seconds to prevent Indiana from even getting a chance to tie the score.
The result: Iowa won its second straight, ended a three-game losing streak in the series and won at Assembly Hall for the first time since 2015.
“Bohannon made an unbelievable step back on Al (Durham) at the end of the clock, I think midway through the second half and that last one was unbelievable, too,” Hoosiers coach Archie Miller said. “They made big baskets and really timely baskets.”
The Hoosiers (13-10, 4-8) gave them no other choice even after Juwan Morgan went to the bench with his fourth foul less than four minutes into the second half and even with Indiana trailing 58-48 with 11:14 to play.
Clarke leads No. 4 Gonzaga over San Francisco 92-62
Fourth-ranked Gonzaga was clinging to a three-point lead over San Francisco late in the first half Thursday when someone flipped the switch on guard Zach Norvell Jr.
Norvell scored 13 consecutive points for the Bulldogs and launched them toward a 92-62 win over San Francisco.
“We got stagnant on offense,” Gonzaga coach Mark Few said of the first half lull. “We made some real, real silly turnovers in the first half. We needed those shots to get us going,”
Norvell’s streak seemed to ignite the Zags, who outscored San Francisco 49-32 in the second half to post their 13th consecutive victory.
“Things were going back and forth early on,” Norvell said. “In the second half we were able to open things up. And we got stops in the end.”
Brandon Clarke had 20 points, 16 rebounds and five blocks for Gonzaga.
“He was phenomenal,” Few said. “He’s athletic. He’s quick. He’s strong, skilled.”
“I played really hard tonight,” Clarke said. “My teammates found me on my cuts.”
Rui Hachimura added 17 points and Norvell finished with 16 for Gonzaga (22-2, 9-0 West Coast), which was No. 1 in the Top 25 until losses to No. 1 Tennessee and No. 8 North Carolina in mid-December knocked them down. Geno Crandall scored 12.
Frankie Ferrari and Charles Minlend each scored 14 points for San Francisco (17-6, 5-4), which has lost 16 consecutive games to Gonzaga.
Cumberland scores 17 to lead No. 25 Cincinnati past Memphis
In the end, Cincinnati’s toughness – and leading scorer Jarron Cumberland recovering from a poor shooting night – helped the No. 25 Bearcats extend their winning streak to eight games.
Cumberland scored 17 points and keyed a late rally as the Bearcats defeated Memphis 69-64 on Thursday night.
“We weren’t able to get it done,” Memphis coach Penny Hardaway said, adding: “They were down in the second half, and they kept fighting and scrapping like we knew they would and we didn’t meet the challenge.”
Justin Jenifer scored 14 and Tre Scott finished with 13 points and nine rebounds as Cincinnati (20-3, 9-1 American Athletic Conference), which moved into the Top 25 this week, used a second-half rally to overcome a double-digit deficit.
“We didn’t come in not locked in and not focused, but we needed to pick up the pace,” Jenifer said. “.That was the main piece to our win today, was our defense.”
The Bearcats struggled with poor shooting and the pace of the game early. The Memphis lead reached 11 early in the second half before Cincinnati found its rhythm and began chipping into the advantage.
“We’re still learning how hard you have to play to win a game like this,” Cincinnati coach Mick Cronin said. “We played harder as the game went on.”
That change in momentum came in the second half. Cincinnati struggled in the first, making only one of its last 15 shots in the half. That helped Memphis build a 35-29 lead at the break.
Young’s go-ahead basket lifts Ohio St. past Penn St., 74-70
Kyle Young scored the go-ahead basket with 63 seconds left and Ohio State held off Penn State 74-70 in a Big Ten game on Thursday night.
The Buckeyes (15-7, 5-6) were 25-9 last season but lost three times to Penn State, including the semifinals of the conference tournament.
“They beat us three times last year, probably one of the reasons we don’t have a (Big Ten title) ring right now,” Ohio State forward Andre Wesson said. “With that motivation coming into the game we knew we had to get this one.”
Penn State had taken a 70-69 lead when Josh Reaves stole the ball from Wesson in the backcourt and scored on a slam with 1:34 left.
After Young’s bucket put the Buckeyes ahead, Lamar Stevens thought he gave Penn State a 72-71 lead with 32.2 seconds left, but it was ruled after a review that he did not beat the shot clock off the inbound play.
Wesson was fouled and made one of two free throws for 73-71 lead with 29.7 seconds left. Penn State’s Rasir Bolton missed an open layup and the Nittany Lions C.J. Jackson, who made a pair of foul shots. Penn State (8-15, 1-11) missed its final two attempts.
“Hard fought battle. Penn State, Ohio State. It seems like it always is,” Nittany Lions coach Patrick Chambers said. “I’m proud of our guys. We got down 15 (in the first half). We went down again in the second half and we just kept fighting back.”
Wesson and Jackson each had 15 points for the Buckeyes, who committed 18 turnovers but won for the third time in four games after a five-game losing streak.
Stevens and Reaves both had 20 points and Bolton added another 15 for Penn State.
Frank Robinson, baseball’s fearsome trailblazer, dies at 83
Crowding the plate, fearsome and fearless, Frank Robinson hammered his way into the Hall of Fame.
His legacy, however, was cemented that day in 1975 when he simply stood in the dugout at old Cleveland Stadium – the first black manager in Major League Baseball.
Robinson, the only player to earn the MVP award in both leagues and a Triple Crown winner, died Thursday at 83. He had been in failing health and in hospice care at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles. MLB said he was with family and friends at the time.
“Frank Robinson’s resume in our game is without parallel, a trailblazer in every sense, whose impact spanned generations,” Commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement.
Robinson hit 586 home runs – he was fourth on the career list behind only Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth and Willie Mays when he retired and now ranks 10th. An MVP with Cincinnati and Baltimore, he led the Orioles to their first World Series championship in 1966.
“Frank Robinson and I were more than baseball buddies. We were friends. Frank was a hard-nosed baseball player who did things on the field that people said could never be done,” Aaron posted on Twitter.
“Baseball will miss a tremendous human being,” he said.
An All-Star outfielder in 12 seasons and a first-ballot selection to Cooperstown, Robinson also was a Rookie of the Year, a Gold Glove outfielder and a bruising runner.
But his place in the sport’s history extended far beyond the batter’s box and basepaths.
Robinson fulfilled his quest to become the first African-American manager in the big leagues when he was hired by the Cleveland Indians. His impact was immediate and memorable.
The Indians opened at home that year and Robinson, still active, batted himself second as the designated hitter. In the first inning, he homered off Doc Medich and the crowd went crazy, cheering the whole April afternoon as Cleveland beat the Yankees.
The Reds, Orioles and Indians have retired his No. 20 and honored him with statues at their stadiums.
Robinson later managed San Francisco, Baltimore and Montreal. He became the first manager of the Washington Nationals after the franchise moved from Montreal for the 2005 season – the Nationals put him in their Ring of Honor.
More than half the major league teams have had black managers since his debut with Cleveland.
Robinson later spent several years working as an executive for MLB and for a time oversaw the annual Civil Rights Game. He advocated for more minorities throughout baseball and worked with former Commissioner Bud Selig to develop the Selig Rule, directing teams to interview at least one minority candidate before hiring a new manager.
For all he did on and off the field, Robinson was presented the Presidential Medal of Freedom by George W. Bush in 2005.
Phillies get top catcher Realmuto from Marlins for 3 players
In October, J.T. Realmuto’s agent predicted the Miami Marlins’ All-Star catcher would be with another team by spring training.
He was right.
After months of speculation over what they’d do, the Marlins traded Realmuto on Thursday to the Philadelphia Phillies for catcher Jorge Alfaro, two pitching prospects and $250,000 in international signing bonus pool allocation.
Along with Alfaro, the Phillies gave up 20-year-old right-hander Sixto Sanchez, their top prospect, and left-hander Will Stewart.
“This is about us acquiring the best catcher in baseball,” Phillies general manager Matt Klentak said, “and we’re really excited about that.”
Realmuto, who turns 28 in March, had been with the Marlins longer than any other current player. His agent, Jeff Berry, predicted a trade after Realmuto informed the Marlins last fall he wouldn’t sign a long-term contract with them.
The Marlins got the deal done six days before their pitchers and catchers report to spring training. A rebuilding project for the perennial also-rans will probably continue for several years under CEO Derek Jeter, whose group bought the franchise after the 2017 season.
“We did not have to trade J.T.,” president of baseball operations Michael Hill said. “But our goal is to build a long-term sustainable championship organization.”
The deal could vault the Phillies into playoff contention, and they’re still pursuing free agents Bryce Harper and Manny Machado . They bolstered their lineup earlier with the additions of shortstop Jean Segura and 2013 NL MVP Andrew McCutchen .
Jayhawks’ Lagerald Vick to take personal leave of absence
Kansas guard Lagerald Vick is taking a leave of absence from the basketball program, leaving the No. 13 Jayhawks even more short-handed as they face an uphill climb to a 15th straight Big 12 title.
Jayhawks coach Bill Self said in a statement Thursday night that Vick has “some personal matters that require his immediate attention.” Self said there is no timetable for his return.
The Jayhawks are 17-6 and 6-4 in the Big 12, leaving them 1 1/2 games behind Kansas State.
“He has some things going on that (aren’t) public things,” Self said during his weekly radio show Thursday night, “so I think that he hasn’t been his best because of those things.”
Kansas, the nation’s preseason No. 1, is already playing without three players that Self expected to be key pieces of a march to a second consecutive Final Four. Star center Udoka Azubuike was lost for the season to wrist surgery, power forward Silvio De Sousa was declared ineligible by the NCAA and top defensive stopper Marcus Garrett is out with a sprained ankle.
The depth problems, even before Garrett’s injury and Vick’s departure, led Self to lift freshman guard Ochai Agbaji’s redshirt midway through the season. He’s been one of their best players since.
“Not being totally negative at all, he has some things going on that (aren’t) public things, so I think that he hasn’t been his best because of those things,” Self said on Hawk Talk, not revealing anything that possibly is wrong with Vick or his family members.
The mercurial Vick, who has appeared in 117 games for the Jayhawks, turned pro last season before returning to Kansas for his senior year. He’s started 20 of 23 games this season, averaging 14.1 points and four rebounds while providing a young backcourt with veteran leadership.
Grizzlies take next step in rebuilding, trading Marc Gasol
The Memphis Grizzlies have taken another big step toward rebuilding their roster, trading center Marc Gasol and leaving Mike Conley as the lone remaining piece from the core four of the franchise’s best success.
And Conley’s tenure might only last the rest of this season.
The Grizzlies traded Gasol to Toronto on Thursday at the NBA trade deadline, more than two weeks after owner Robert Pera told both Gasol and Conley that they would be listening to offers for two of the league’s longest-tenured teammates.
Memphis sent Gasol to the Raptors in exchange for Jonas Valanciunas, CJ Miles and Delon Wright and a 2024 second-round draft pick.
Trading Gasol at least got Memphis something out of a 34-year-old center, who holds a $25 million option he can exercise this summer.
Conley had been linked to Utah, Detroit and even Toronto along with Gasol in a handful of reports, though $67 million over the final two seasons of the max contract Conley signed in July 2016 didn’t make a trade easier to piece together. Conley said Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace called him around 15 minutes before the deadline saying the guard would stick around.
“I was prepared for either,” Conley said Thursday night after a 117-95 loss in Oklahoma City. “What happens, happens, and I’m here. No matter where I was going to be, I’m all in. No hard feelings. I’m just going to do my job and try to do my best for this team and the guys we have here because they pay me to play, and that’s what we do.”
Grizzlies coach J.B. Bickerstaff said before the game he didn’t expect all the trade rumors to be an issue with Conley.
Former No. 1 pick Fultz to Orlando
Two people familiar with the negotiations say that former No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz has a new home, going from the Philadelphia 76ers to the Orlando Magic.
Fultz is getting moved for Jonathan Simmons, as well as a 2020 first-round pick that Philadelphia used to own but was conveyed in other deals. The 76ers also get a second-round pick this year.
Fultz has played in only 33 games since being taken No. 1 overall in the 2017 draft. It is a low-risk, high-reward move for the Magic.
Bogdanovic scores 29, Pacers beat short-handed Clippers
The Indiana Pacers have found their rhythm even after losing Victor Oladipo.
Bojan Bogdanovic had 29 points and seven rebounds, and the Pacers beat the short-handed Los Angeles Clippers 116-92 on Thursday night.
“I think we’ve been connected,” Pacers coach Nate McMillan said. “Defensively playing good, offensively we’ve got ball movement and guys are knocking down shots. I felt like we lost a rhythm for a few games. That four-game losing streak, I thought we lost a rhythm. But, we seemed to have found it with the guys that we have out on the floor.”
Myles Turner had 17 points and tied his career high with six blocked shots, while Thaddeus Young and Darren Collison each scored 14 points for the Pacers, who won their fourth consecutive game.
Montrezl Harrell scored 19 points and Danilo Gallinari had 12 for the Clippers, who have a roster in transition after the NBA’s trade deadline.
“It was tough, especially when you’re playing against a very good team like Indiana,” Gallinari said. “We didn’t do a very good job tonight. We started pretty well, but we were not able to keep up for the while game.”
The Pacers scored 13 straight during a 17-2 run late in the second quarter to pull away.
Bogdanovic made back-to-back 3-pointers to put Indiana ahead 60-46 with 4:31 left in the half. He scored on a reverse layup with 2:17 to go to give the Pacers a 64-48 lead.
Indiana led 71-53 at halftime. The Pacers led by as much as 27 when Collison made two free throws late in the third to make it 94-67.
Westbrook’s triple-double leads Thunder past Grizzlies
The Thunder got a familiar performance from Russell Westbrook while the Memphis Grizzlies struggled to get used to playing without Marc Gasol.
Westbrook had his eighth straight triple-double, and Oklahoma City rolled past the trade-depleted Grizzlies 117-95 on Thursday night.
Westbrook finished with 15 points, 15 assists and 13 rebounds. He now has the longest triple-double streak of his career and is one short of Wilt Chamberlain’s NBA record of nine straight set in 1968.
Meanwhile, the Grizzlies were reeling from the news that Gasol was traded to the Toronto Raptors for three players. The Grizzlies also announced Thursday that they sent JaMychal Green and Garrett Temple to the Los Angeles Clippers for Avery Bradley, and Shelvin Mack to Atlanta for Tyler Dorsey.
The loss of Gasol hit the hardest. He had played his entire 11-year career with the Grizzlies.
“You kind of try to prepare yourself as best you can, knowing that there’s a possibility that Marc might not be with us come the trade deadline,” Memphis point guard Mike Conley said. “You think you’ve kind of figured it out and you’re ready for it, but when it happens, it’s a completely different locker room. It’s a completely different feel. You get out there to play and you’re bringing the guys in the huddle and there’s no Marc.”
Paul George scored 27 points and Jerami Grant added 20 for Oklahoma City, which has won nine of 10.
Jaren Jackson Jr. scored 27 points, Bruno Caboclo had 16 and Conley added 15 points and seven assists for Memphis.
Rondo’s jumper at buzzer lifts Lakers over Celtics 129-128
LeBron James won’t be playing alongside Anthony Davis this season.
But he does have a team he’s hoping can build on a big win over its longtime rival.
Rajon Rondo hit a 20-foot jumper as time expired to lift the Los Angeles Lakers over the Boston Celtics, 129-128 on Thursday night.
“I practice those shots all the time,” said Rondo, who hit his first career go-ahead field goal in the final 10 seconds of fourth quarter or overtime. “Couldn’t imagine it being in the Garden though. … This is one I’ll be playing for the rest of my life.”
James had 28 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists. Kyle Kuzma added 25 points and Rondo had 17 points and 10 assists to help Los Angeles bounce back after a 42-point loss at Indiana on Tuesday.
James is the third Lakers player with a triple-double in Boston, joining Magic Johnson and Elgin Baylor.
“I’m starting to get more and more back to myself,” James said. “Every possession, every quarter, every time I take a hit, I’m able to nudge it off and keep going. I’m working my way back and I’m getting better and better every single minute.”
Rondo was in the right place at the right time for his final shot against the team he won an NBA title with in 2008. Brandon Ingram had his layup attempt blocked by Al Horford, but Horford whiffed on the rebound and the ball bounced into Rondo’s hands.
“I thought the basketball gods rewarded the right team,” Celtics coach Brad Stevens said.
Kyrie Irving led Boston with 24 points and eight assists. Jayson Tatum added 22 points and 10 rebounds. Daniel Theis has 20 points off the bench but the Celtics had a five-game win streak snapped.
Pelicans to permit Davis to play rest of season
After Anthony Davis found out he wouldn’t be traded Thursday, the six-time All-Star learned the New Orleans Pelicans will let him suit up for the remainder of the season.
While Davis had stated publicly that he’s ready to move on from New Orleans, he also had said he was prepared to play for the Pelicans as long as he remained under contract with them.
“Ultimately, Anthony made it clear to us that he wants to play and he gives our team the best opportunity to win games. Moreover, the Pelicans want to preserve the integrity of the game and align our organization with NBA policies,” Pelicans general manager Dell Demps said in a statement. “We believe Anthony playing upholds the values that are in the best interest of the NBA and its fans. We look forward to seeing Anthony in a Pelicans uniform again soon.”
The Pelicans initially appeared inclined to move on without Davis and focus on the players who might help them going forward. Davis’ image has been removed from promotional materials, the club’s official website and even a team hype video that plays before home games on the Smoothie King Center’s expansive scoreboard screens hanging above the court.
But benching a healthy player could potentially infringe on NBA rules designed to protect the investments of ticket holders and broadcast partners alike against the prospects of star players being arbitrarily rested.
Those rules, for example, prohibit clubs from “resting healthy players for any high-profile, nationally televised game.” Doing so, the rules state, “will constitute conduct prejudicial or detrimental to the NBA and result in a fine of at least $100,000.”
The Pelicans play next on Friday night at home against Minnesota, and the game is slated for national television.
There is a gray area in that the rules provide for exceptions in “unusual circumstances,” but the Pelicans elected not to force the NBA into a position of having to rule on whether Davis’ public trade request through his agent, Rich Paul, constituted an unusual circumstance in this case.
LeBron, Giannis choose their teams for the All-Star Game
LeBron James finally has Anthony Davis as a teammate.
For one game.
His Los Angeles Lakers were unable to swing a deal for Davis, but James drafted the New Orleans Pelicans star on Thursday when he and fellow captain Giannis Antetokounmpo sat down to choose their teams for the Feb. 17 All-Star Game in Charlotte.
Davis told the Pelicans he wanted a trade, and James has made it clear that he’d love to play with him. But the Pelicans kept Davis as the trade deadline passed, so for now, their time as teammates will be limited to All-Star weekend and James pounced at the chance to grab him with the second pick of the reserve round.
“I’m very sure of that,” James said, when asked by TNT host Ernie Johnson if he was sure he wanted Davis as a teammate.
“Isn’t that tampering?” Antetokounmpo asked.
Responded James, as both players laughed: “Tampering rules do not apply on All-Star weekend,” a thinly veiled reference to the reaction James got when he listed Davis as one of many players he would like the chance to play with.
James chose Golden State’s Kevin Durant with the No. 1 overall pick, as he did last year in the All-Star draft, to be one of his starters. They’ll be joined in the Team LeBron starting five by Boston’s Kyrie Irving, Toronto’s Kawhi Leonard and Houston’s James Harden. Team Giannis, in addition to Antetokounmpo, will start Golden State’s Stephen Curry, Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid, Oklahoma City’s Paul George and Charlotte hometown favorite Kemba Walker.
Antetokounmpo said he took George for one reason: “He had a huge dunk on me,” Antetokounmpo said, tipping his cap to the slam that the Thunder star threw down last month.
Chiefs GM: Planning already happening for Mahomes contract
The Kansas City Chiefs are already planning their future around signing quarterback Patrick Mahomes to a long-term contract, even though the NFL MVP won’t be eligible to sign an extension until after next season.
Chiefs general manager Bret Veach said during a wide-ranging interview Thursday that some of the financial decisions made dating back to last offseason were done with Mahomes in mind, such as the way the franchise structured contracts and how they approached free agency and the draft.
“We were prepared for Pat to have success and be a franchise quarterback,” Veach said, “so this process of structuring ourselves for the next three, four, five years started about a year ago.”
In the ensuing 12 months, the Chiefs traded incumbent quarterback Alex Smith to Washington and handed the job to Mahomes, who threw for more than 5,000 yards along with 50 touchdown passes while leading the club to its third straight AFC West title and the conference championship game.
The Chiefs lost in overtime to the Patriots, a defeat made even more frustrating by the fact that Kansas City lost the coin flip and Mahomes never had a chance with the ball in the extra session.
Off the field, Mahomes has become one of the NFL’s biggest stars.
With his moppy Mohawk, earnest attitude and game-changing ability, Mahomes became must-watch TV by the end of the season. He had the eighth-best selling jersey in the NFL, has been courted by a wave of sponsors and has led Las Vegas odds-makers to peg the Chiefs as Super Bowl favorites next season.
Some suggest Mahomes could ultimately sign the first $200 million contract in NFL history when he is eligible for an extension after next season.
THIS DAY IN SPORTS HISTORY- FEBRUARY 8, 1980
NEW YORK-The largest crowd in indoor track history stood and stomped and screamed and clapped tonight at Madison Square Garden. The excitement was provoked by an astounding race by a record-breaking miler. No, Eamonn Coghlan was not the miler. The race was not even for men. The hero of the 73d annual Wanamaker Millrose Games was 21-year-old Mary Decker, who won the womenís 1,500-meter run by 80 yards, half a lap, in 4 minutes 0.8 seconds, a world indoor record. This was her first New York appearance since 1974, when, as a pig-tailed schoolgirl, she won a Millrose title and a national championship.
Since then, she has quit track, undergone surgery on leg sheaths and come back. On Jan. 26, in Auckland, New Zealand, she set a world outdoor mile record of 4:21.7. Her time tonight translates to a 4:19 mile, remarkable because the tight turns of an 11-lap indoor track are more difficult to negotiate than the sweeping turns on a four-lap outdoor track.
Francie Larrieu, for years America’s best runner at 1,500 meters and a mile, did not run because of illness. Her presence could not have made that much difference. Miss Decker ran the first quarter-mile in 60.3 seconds, faster than the first quarter of the Wanamaker Mile for men. She finished the half mile in 2:05.9, faster than any woman had run a half-mile race in the Garden. Two laps later, the crowd was standing and yelling encouragement. “The crowd helped tremendously,” said Miss Decker. “I couldn’t have set the record without it. I thought my pace was too fast, but this was a much stronger race than my mile record.”
The meet was sold out nine days in advance. The crowd of 18,310 broke the indoor record of 18,307 for the 1964 Chicago Relays and the Games and Garden record of 18,301, set last year. The crowd was noisy because race after race provided records (world, American, Garden and meet) or tingling finishes or both.

TODAY IN BASEBALL HISTORY
1901 Phillies star infielder Napoleon Lajoie is rumored to have jumped to the new American League’s Philadelphia franchise. The National League’s leading hitter, clearly in violation of the reserve clause, does switch to the Junior Circuit, where he will win the Triple Crown, leading the league with a .426 batting average, 14 homers, and 125 RBIs.
1942 At the Folsom Correctional facility in California, the annual game between big leaguers and the prison inmates is delayed when the guards need to search for two convicts attempting an escape. With the visiting team ahead 24-5 at the end of seven innings, the contest does not resume after escapees are apprehended.
1956 In Philadelphia, former A’s manager and owner Connie Mack, 93, dies of “old age and complications from his hip surgery.” The ‘Tall Tactician’ set records for major league wins (3,731) and losses (3,948), compiling a .486 managerial mark during his 54 years as a skipper, including his three seasons with the Pirates before the turn of the century.
1972 Commissioner Bowie Kuhn announces the Special Committee on the Negro League Hall of Fame selection of Buck Leonard and Josh Gibson, a power-hitting catcher who was called the “black Babe Ruth” during his playing day. Leonard, a teammate of Gibson on the Homestead Grays who once turned down a MLB contract believing he was too old to compete at that level, was ranked #47 on a 1999 Sporting News poll of the 100 Greatest Baseball Players
1973 The owners announce ‘Early Bird’ spring training, which had been scheduled to begin next week, is canceled until the negotiations with the Players’ Association are completed. The 23-day lockout, caused by a disagreement over salary arbitration, will not affect the start of the regular season.
1982 The longest-playing infield foursome is broken up when the Dodgers trade Davey Lopes straight up for A’s minor leaguer Lance Hudson, a middle infielder who will never appear in a major league game. The 36 year-old former LA second baseman had played with Steve Garvey, Ron Cey, and Bill Russell since 1974.
2006 After rejecting an earlier proposal by an 8-5 margin just a few hours ago, the District of Columbia Council reverses itself and approves a revised lease for a new Washington, D.C. ballpark. At the urging of Mayor Anthony A. Williams, the council reconvenes and votes 9-4 to approve the deal after attaching legislation capping the district’s total cost at a bit less than $611 million.
2006 Wayne Krivsky, a leading candidate for the job in 2004, is finally selected as the Reds general manager. The 51 year-old former Twins executive replaces Dan O’Brien, who was fired by new owner Bob Castellini in an effort to select his own baseball people.
2006 Johnny Damon, the former beloved Red Sox outfielder who signed as a free agent with the hated Yankees, takes out a full-page ad in the Boston Globe, thanking fans for their loyalty and support. As one of the most popular players in franchise history, the long-hair self-proclaimed ‘idiot’ incurred the wrath of the Fenway Faithful when he agreed to a $52 million, four-year deal to play in the Bronx.
2008 In a long and drawn-out 5-for-1 deal, the Mariners finally land Erik Bedard (13-5, 3.16) from the Orioles. In exchange for their Opening Day pitcher last season, Baltimore receives center fielder Adam Jones, veteran southpaw reliever George Sherrill, and pitching prospects Chris Tillman, Tony Butler, and Kam Mickolio from the Emerald City.
2008 The Brewers exercise Ned Yost’s 2009 option, after the 53 year-old skipper led Milwaukee to its first winning season since 1992, finishing second in the NL Central with an 83-79 won-loss record. The skipper will never manage a game in his extended contracted year after he is dismissed with 12 games remaining this season, taking the blame for the under-achieving team’s swoon in August and September.
2009 In the softball championship game of the Leadoff Classic, Kylie Reynolds of Kent State strikes out 18 Stetson batters en route to throwing a nine-inning no-hitter. The Golden Flashes’ junior sets a new school record for strikeouts in her 1-0 masterpiece at Patricia Wilson Field.
As a tribute to his fellow countryman, Omar Vizquel will wear the number 11 this season to honor Luis Aparicio. The White Sox will temporarily “unretire” the Hall of Famer’s number for the Venezuelan shortstop, who was recently acquired by Chicago as a free agent.
2010 The Brewers announce the club plans to erect a seven-foot statue of former owner Bud Selig that will be unveiled during a pregame ceremony at Miller Park in August. Selig, the current baseball commissioner, led a group of investors that bought the Seattle Pilots in 1970 and moved the bankrupt franchise to Milwaukee.
2011 Tony Malinosky, the oldest living major leaguer, dies at the age of 101 in Oxnard, California. The World War II veteran and survivor of the Battle of the Bulge, an infielder with the 1937 Brooklyn Dodgers, was honored by the team on his 100th birthday.
