  • Arnold Palmer's Longtime Assistant on the Golf Legend's Life and Death: He Was a Great Golfer and Even Greater Man

    The title of Arnold Palmer's final memoir that's due out in a few weeks is called A Life Well Played, which couldn't be more appropriate, especially now in light of his passing Sunday at age 87. "His shoulder never healed and it started a bit of a downward spiral," his personal assistant for 50 years, Doc Giffin, tells PEOPLE. Palmer, the winner of 62 PGA Tour titles and seven major championships, could no longer play the game he loved so much, the game that had given the greenskeeper's son from Latrobe, Pennsylvania, so much.

  • Emotional night in Miami as players and fans honor Jose Fernandez

    Of all the tributes we've seen to Jose Fernandez over the past two days, the best one came from Miami Marlins teammate Dee Gordon, bat in hand, blasting an unlikely home run to lead off Monday's emotionally charged game in Miami. If you need any more proof that Fernandez was on Gordon's mind, he started his at-bat from the right side of the plate, like Fernandez, then switched to hitting lefty after the first pitch. When Gordon crossed home plate, the tears were flowing.

  • Derek Falvey named Twins new president of baseball operations.

    ESPN’s Keith Law reports the Twins have hired Derek Falvey as their new president of baseball operations. Falvey has been the Indians assistant general manager for the past year after spending a decade with the organization. He’s only 32 and he’s analytically-inclined. Which, given that the Twins front office has been particularly young or analytically-inclined, should be a pretty major change of pace. The Twins’ longtime general manager, Terry Ryan, was fired in July. The club lost its 100th game yesterday, marking only the second time since the franchise moved to Minnesota that it has lost that many games.

  • FIFA under fire for disbanding anti-racism task force

    By Chris Bertram MANCHESTER (Reuters) - World soccer's governing body FIFA was under fire on Monday for winding up its anti-racism task force with former presidential candidate Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein of Jordan describing the move as worrying and shameful. FIFA secretary general Fatma Samoura confirmed the decision when she spoke to the Soccerex conference in Manchester, saying the task force had a "very specific mandate". "We can live with perception (created by disbanding the task force) but we are taking very firm action." However, Prince Ali, a former FIFA executive committee member who has twice run for the presidency, said that "the notion that the current FIFA leadership believes that the task force’s recommendations have been implemented is shameful." He added that the announcement was "incredibly worrying".

What struck him was the reaction from the crowd at Busch Stadium: And the fans, in a rare moment of pique, let the Cardinals hear about it, first booing and then erupting in a Bronx cheer when the final out of a seven-run fourth was recorded. They booed a little more later on and then many of them beat the traffic, with some of them at least leaving with a Grateful Dead T-shirt, a special theme night promotion . . . The paid crowd to witness the carnage was
