Some division titles have been decided. Some are winding down. But one thing is for sure, baseball teams from all around the county are getting their affairs in order in an attempt to make a strong push toward and into the postseason, which is but a few short weeks away. Here’s a look at how some of the top teams - and players - in Oakland County are looking as they round third and head towards home, or the state playoffs as it’s more commonly referred to.
BLOOMFIELD HILLS - The Detroit Country train is a rollin', and it looks to be full steam ahead for the defending state champions. The Yellowjackets swept the Division 3 region at Cranbrook Thursday afternoon, finishing with a perfect 24 points at the eight-team regional. Country Day did not drop a set all day and really wasn't challenged in any set it played en route to the sweep.
BEVERLY HILLS - Generally speaking, it's never really a true upset when either Birmingham Marian or Seaholm knock each other off during their annual regional showdown. Both are always capable of pulling out the win. That doesn't mean Thursday's regional championship wasn't a little bit sweeter for the Mustangs, who entered the tournament ranked No. 5 in the state - three spots behind Seaholm, a team in which it fell to just a week ago in their first meeting of the 2017 season.
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".
