To say Jessica Moore is totally immersed in softball these days would be an understatement. The Sutter High graduate and 2016 USA Softball Female Athlete of the Year spent Thursday at Raley Field in Sacramento with the USA National Team as it swept a doubleheader from the Sacramento Rush All-Stars, 10-0 in four innings and 7-0 in five innings. Moore was the starting pitcher in the first game, going 3 2⁄3 innings, striking out nine, walking one and giving up two hits.
Shortly after the Marysville High baseball team dropped the third and deciding game of its Sac-Joaquin Section playoff series with Capital Christian this past May, Indians senior Jase Weckman stood beside teammate Matthew Chiono on the grass at Billy Hebert Field in Stockton and reflected. "It's just hard to believe that it's over, that we're done playing baseball for Marysville," he said. "I mean, multiple years of varsity and now it just comes to an end real quick. It's hard to believe."
At 5-foot-2 inches tall, Hannah Clavelle doesn't pass the athletic eyeball test. Even in softball, a sport in which superior height isn't a prerequisite for success, the Marysville High junior shortstop and San Jose State verbal commit is sometimes considered a pipsqueak. But whether she's playing for the Indians or, as she was recently, for Sorcerer Gabales 16U — her Bay Area-based travel ball squad — such prejudgement can work in her favor.
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".
