For better or worse, the New York Mets will take a long look at Tim Tebow heading into the 2018 season. The 30-year-old outfielder has been invited to major league spring training, the team announced Friday. Tebow spent most of his time last spring, his first as a baseball player, at the Mets' minor league complex in Port St. Lucie, Fla. He was called over to appear in nine Grapefruit League games, going 4-for-27 (.148) at the plate with eight strikeouts and a walk.
Aly Raisman spared no words Friday, eviscerating longtime USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar — and the organizations that enabled him — in a fiery speech during his sentencing hearing for sexual abuse charges. The six-time Olympic medalist spoke for about 13 minutes in a Michigan courtroom, repeatedly referring to Nassar by his first name in an impassioned denunciation that ended with spectators in the room erupting in applause.
A 20-second pitch clock appears likely to be implemented for the 2018 MLB season despite objections from the players union. The Athletic and ESPN.com reported Thursday that the players are not inclined to support the pace-of-play initiatives commissioner Rob Manfred wants to enact this year. Unfortunately for them, the collective bargaining agreement allows Manfred to implement those changes on his own, and he has been consistent in saying he intends to do so.
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".
