In the final scene of the movie "John Q," there is a powerful message that Denzel Washington's character sends in it. Playing the role of John Archibald, a father who ends up taking a hospital emergency room hostage when his insurance won't cover his son's heart transplant, Denzel says his farewells to his wife and son in the courtroom after being found guilty of kidnapping three months after convincing the hospital to perform the live-saving operation on his son.
FRANKFORD -- While Major League Baseball will be hosting its mid-summer classic tonight, the Canadian-American League is two weeks away from hosting its own all-star classic against the American Association. The Sussex County Miners, meanwhile, are trending upward, winning key games and sporting a far better record than in their first two years of existence. And, two big reasons for the team's current success are the arm of pitching ace Gianni Zayas and the bat of designated hitter Juan Duran.

FRANKFORD -- Kris Regas, of the Sussex County Miners, has something in common with six legendary major leaguers -- Connie Mack, Ty Cobb, Tris Speaker, Joe Torre, Frank Robinson and Pete Rose. They were all player-coaches during their respective careers, the same two roles being filled today by Regas.
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".
