Just so you know, Tim Restall, the new president of the Yard Goats, has not allowed his ascension to alter his point of view about hands-on service to his organization. That is why his hands were on a snow shovel last week, clearing away the slop on Main Street blocking the path to his team’s front door. “Someone walked by me and said, ‘You guys do everything.’ It’s a team effort,” Restall said last week. Well, the team will look a little different in 2018.
The oldest of three brothers, Joe Whitney was always the one at the front of the pack at the rinks they all played growing up in Reading, Mass. Small in stature, but exceptionally talented, he seemed to be the kid that generated the most buzz once the games began. But never far behind, doing their best to keep up, were Joe’s kid brothers, Steve and Tyler, who was five years younger than him. “I was always around,” Tyler Whitney said. “I watched them play and how they grew up.
Clearly happy to be wanted again, Wally Backman ventured deep into every handshake line last week, visiting three venues in just over a day to introduce himself to the fans of the New Britain Bees, the independent Atlantic League team he has agreed to manage this season. During his baseball career he has repeated this ritual many times, smiling and looking genuinely excited about his opportunities to manage.
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".
