The Auburn Tigers men’s and women’s teams have everything they need to prepare to compete at the highest level at their Jack Key Facility. The 30-acre practice facility features a range with tees on opposite ends so players can train in different wind conditions, five Bermuda grass greens and 19 wedge targets. The facility allows players to create any shot they may see in competition.
Inside the newly renovated 10,000 square-foot Jack Key Golf Teaching Facility, players can use three double indoor hitting bays or relax in the lounge and locker rooms. The building also features a club repair room, putting lab, video analysis and coaches’ offices.
Jose Altuve celebrated his 31st birthday by hitting a go-ahead three-run homer with one out in the eighth inning, lifting the Houston Astros to a 7-4 victory over the New York Yankees Thursday afternoon at Yankee Stadium. The Astros salvaged the finale of the emotionally charged series thanks to Altuve, whose second hit of the day gave Houston a 5-3 lead. The Astros had runners at first and third against Chad Green (0-3) when Altuve came up to another round of profane chants from the limited capacity crowd.
Albert Pujols was cut by the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday, abruptly ending the 41-year-old superstar slugger's decade with his second major league team. The Angels surprisingly announced the move to designate Pujols for assignment one day after he wasn't in the lineup for the slumping club's fourth consecutive loss. The decision was made after Pujols, dissatisfied with irregular playing time, had a late-night meeting with general manager Perry Minasian and team president John Carpino.
