Babe Ruth's 1927 World Series ring is up for auction on Lelands.com and with still plenty of time to bid on it, bidding has already gone to more than $500,000. Also up for bids is the contract that sent Ruth from the Boston Red Sox to the New York Yankees in 1919. Actor Charlie Sheen was the owner of these two items who put them up for bid, ESPN reported. "I've enjoyed these incredible items for more than two decades and the time has come," Sheen told ESPN. "Whatever price it brings is gravy."
Add Kenyon Martin to the list of those in and around the NBA who think Phil Jackson is a problem for the New York Knicks. Martin, who played for the Knicks from 2012-14, was in Brooklyn for the Big3 league and talked to TMZ about Jackson, who has seen the Knicks go 80-166 in the past three seasons. "They should be pointing more of the finger at Phil Jackson," Martin said when the interviewer said fans are doing that. "All of the problems should be pointed at Phil Jackson."
Karlos Williams, whom the Buffalo Bills cut last year after he came to training camp out of shape, was suspended for at least year, according to an ESPN report. Williams signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers after the Bills cut him, but he was suspended 10 games for a violation of the substance abuse policy. He had one game remaining on that suspension. The Steelers waived him in March, and he remains a free agent. The Bills drafted Williams in the fifth round of the 2015 draft out of Florida State.
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".
