It didn't take a toddler getting hit with a line drive to get Major League Baseball to start thinking about extending netting at major league parks around the country. In fact, the conversation actually started almost two years ago. While the scene that left players on the field in tears this week made the conversation serious.
KUSA - The Rockies entered play on Sept. 16, 2007 4.5 games behind the San Diego Padres for the final National League playoff spot. What took place over the next month was the most magical stretch in franchise history. The Rockies won 21 of 22 games, resulting in the team’s first and only World Series appearance. In the coming weeks, we will relive the streak known now to Colorado fans simply as “Rocktober”. 9NEWS will look back, on a game-by-game basis, at the Rockies' 2007 run.
The title is new, but the workplace isn't. New University of Denver Athletic Director Ron Grahame has always been a Pioneer. "I've kind of been all things here," Grahame said. Grahame has always had a home at DU. He's been a member of the school's family since 1969, and it's all he really knows. He started his journey as a student-athlete, playing goalie for the hockey team from 1969-1973. He still remembers his first game. "I was a very scared young man, to be perfectly honest," Grahame said.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
