Syracuse, N.Y. -- The era of community owned Triple-A baseball in Syracuse is over. The Syracuse Chiefs' shareholders voted overwhelmingly Friday to approve an agreement between the Community Baseball Club of Central New York and the New York Mets that allows the Mets to purchase the franchise for $18 million. Shareholders holding a total of 9,485 shares cast "yes'' ballots. "No'' votes were turned in by those claiming just 45 shares. There were 10 abstentions.
Syracuse, N.Y. -- Four years ago, Bill Dutch and four other investors formed a group called Chiefs First and loaned a Syracuse baseball team on the verge of bankruptcy $500,000. Friday, that financial leap of faith paid off with a cool $720,000 profit for the five people. But was that the price of keeping Triple-A baseball in town since 2014 and likely through at least 2025? Dutch, president of the team's board of directors, insists that it was, and his case appears to be a strong one.
Syracuse, N.Y. -- Goalie Michael Leighton and forward Tye McGinn boarded a bus in Syracuse on Tuesday morning as members of the Crunch, and about an hour into the team's trip to Hershey their careers veered off on a much different course. The two players learned during the journey that they had been traded to the Arizona organization in exchange for netminder Louis Domingue. Leighton, 36, has been around the pro game for quite some time but still didn't see this coming.
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".
