SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. — Jeff Astore made his way through the merchandise area at Lamade Stadium, looking for a New England jersey. Outside, the rain was coming down hard and Astore and his son, Brayden, 11, were seeking shelter from the storm, as well as looking to get some serious swag.
WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. — Wayne Righter saw it first. The coach with the Fairfield American Little League had a feeling that position-wise, there might be a couple of players whot would be better suited playing different spots. So, Righter went to manager Mike Randazzo, told him of his idea and said, “What do you think?”In the opening three district pool play games, Matt Vivona - who was the catcher last summer as Fairfield American advancedto the New England Region final —was behind the plate.
SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - The first step was a winning one. Barely. Matt Vivona had a double and two-RBI triple and scored three runs, Sean O’Neil had a clutch two-run single and Ethan Righter allowed just four hits and struck out seven as Fairfield American opened play in the 2017 Little league World Series with a heart-stopping 7-6 win over Jackson, N.J. before 9,246 Thursday afternoon at Lamade Stadium.
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".
