When the local organizing committee for the 2018 World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) Junior Men’s World Softball Championships showed off the facilities at Prime Ministers’ Park, they had a lot of people they needed to impress like representatives from Softball Canada and the World Baseball Softball Confederation. Notably out of that list was Ron Radigonda, WBSC executive director in softball.
After Danny Klughart won the Conexus Men’s Lobstick in 2013, his return to the winner’s circle was a long and winding one. In 2014, Klughart had a 3-hole lead with three holes to play and lost in a playoff in the semifinals. Klughart then had to withdraw in 2015 due to some ‘health issues’. But those struggles make holding that Lobstick trophy once again even sweeter. On Saturday, Klughart beat Saskatoon’s Liam Courtney in 14 holes to be declared the 2017 Lobstick victor.
Back on July 24, 1996, Prince Albert’s Todd Nelson made history by becoming the first ever player to sign with the Grand Rapids Griffins. Then on Tuesday as the Griffins’ head coach, Nelson lifted the American Hockey League championship trophy, the Calder Cup, over his head after with the team he helped get its feet off the ground 21 years prior. “It’s extra special. Anytime you win a championship, it means so much,” Nelson, who played for the Prince Albert Raiders from 1985-90, said.
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".
