Detroit Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire, formerly a man of two places, has in the past few weeks become a man of many. Gardenhire, 60, went from being the bench coach of the playoff-bound Arizona Diamondbacks to interviewing on back-to-back days with the Tigers in Detroit and the Red Sox in Boston. In between there and here, Gardenhire drove from Arizona to Oklahoma to Minnesota to Florida, making a pitstop to see his friend and bench coach Steve Liddle along the way in Tennessee.
Their youth baseball teammates and coaches are learning to focus not on what 9-year-old Chris Patrick Jr. and 12-year-old Ka’Doffe Mathis cannot do but on what they can. Chris has cerebral palsy, a neurological disorder that limits his flexibility, balance and ability to run fast. But he can run, hit, throw, catch and every now and then make plays to help his team. Ka’Doffe suffered a traumatic brain injury Oct. 16, 2016.
The Chicago Cubs will make two historic appearances at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers, twice facing the Boston Red Sox at the end of spring training in March. The Red Sox announced the addition of the Cubs to their spring training schedule today. At 6:05 p.m. Monday, March 26, and 1:05 p.m. Tuesday, March 27, the Cubs will face the Red Sox at JetBlue Park. The Red Sox re-released their spring training schedule today with the additions. Single-game tickets go on sale Saturday, Dec. 2.
So, in the Thanksgiving Day edition of The News-Press, my opus on @MiracleBaseball and an interview with Ron Gardenhire appear in print form. It's worth the $5 (!) investment. Biggest paper of the year.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
