Alex Rodriguez isn't going down without a fight

Monday, 05 August 2013 03:54 Published in National News

   A person familiar with deliberations tells The Associated Press that Major League Baseball has informed the New York Yankees that Rodriguez will be suspended Monday but can play while he appeals the penalty. The person said the Yankees were not told the exact length of the suspension, but were left under the impression it will be through the 2014 season.

   The person also said Rodriguez could get a shorter penalty for violating baseball's drug agreement if he gives up the right to file a grievance and force the case before an arbitrator.

   Rodriguez said on Saturday that he planned to rejoin his teammates in time for Monday's series opener at Chicago. Manager Joe Girardi said he will pencil A-Rod into the lineup.

   A second source says MLB planned an announcement for noon EDT Monday.

   Thirteen other players faced discipline following baseball's probe of the Biogenesis of America anti-aging clinic. All-Stars Nelson Cruz of Texas and Jhonny Peralta of Detroit are among those facing the stiffest penalties.

   Toronto outfielder Melky Cabrera, Oakland pitcher Bartolo Colon and San Diego catcher Yasmani Grandal served suspensions after positive tests last year. They've been tied to this performance-enhancing drug case, but can't be disciplined again for the same offense.

 

Hall of Fame DT Art Donovan dead at 89

Monday, 05 August 2013 03:37 Published in Sports

   BALTIMORE (AP) - Art Donovan, the Hall of Fame defensive lineman who spent much of his 12-year career with the Baltimore Colts, has died. He was 89.

   Donovan died Sunday at Stella Maris Hospice in Baltimore, according to Kevin Byrne, senior vice president of the Baltimore Ravens.

   Back in the day when NFL players made little money, the 6-foot-3, 265-pound Donovan played for the love of the game and the thrill of winning. He helped the Colts win championships in 1958 and 1959.

   Donovan broke into professional football in 1950 with the Colts, who folded after his rookie season. He played with the New York Yanks in 1951 and the Dallas Texans in 1952 before the Dallas franchise moved to Baltimore and became the second version of the Colts. He spent the remainder of his career with Baltimore before retiring after the 1961 season.

 

   As the start of the new school year fast approaches, more than 300 students who want to transfer out of the troubled Riverview Gardens and Normandy school districts still don't know where they'll attend classes.  That's because of the limited availability of open seats in some districts they've applied to attend.  

   Many students didn't get into one of their first three choices of districts, or didn't list more than one choice.  So officials with the Cooperating School Districts have extended the application deadline for the still unassigned transfer students.  

   Families can submit a new list of choices.  Those who don't re-apply on the Cooperating School Districts website by noon Monday will not be able to transfer out of the unaccredited districts.

   All of the Normandy students transferring to Francis Howell Districts did get their requests filled.  About 2,400 Riverview Garden students have also received transfer assignments.
