  • Pitcher who allowed Tim Tebow's home run tweets funny response

    St. Louis Cardinals prospect John Kilichowski will forever be the answer to a trivia question no one thought would exist even two months ago. During Wednesday’s instructional league game against the New York Mets, he was the pitcher who allowed a home run to Tim Tebow in Tebow’s first ever professional at-bat. On the first pitch he saw, Tebow took a high-and-outside fastball from Kilichowski and basically tomahawked it over the fence in left-center field.

  • How UFC champ Tyron Woodley thinks racism has impacted his MMA career

    On numerous occasions in the past year, boxing promoter Bob Arum has insisted the UFC’s audience mirrors the demographic that supports Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump:  It’s “lily white,” the International Boxing Hall of Famer has said, with little appreciation of diverse cultures. Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, who will defend the title against Stephen “Wonder Boy” Thompson on Nov. 12 in the co-main event of UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden in New York, has first-hand experience that leads him to agree with Arum’s position. Part of the reason, Woodley speculated, is his race.

    Disgraced hit king Pete Rose has asked National Baseball Hall of Fame officials to reconsider the bylaw that blocks his candidacy for enshrinement, petitioning Hall president Jeff Idelson in a seven-page letter that argues for his inclusion on future ballots. The letter, obtained by Yahoo Sports, contends the terms of Rose’s lifetime ban for gambling – drawn by then-commissioner Bart Giamatti – intentionally excluded language that would have barred Rose from Cooperstown and that, 27 years later, Rose has been unjustly kept from consideration.

  • Charges dismissed against LSU's Godchaux
