Brock Kjeldgaard never got a chance to play in the major leagues. But at 31 and now retired as a professional baseball player, he’ll have something that many professional baseball players will never have -- a spot in a baseball hall of fame. In fact, he’ll have two spots. His second induction will take place Saturday in St. Marys when the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame inducts Canada’s 2015-16 national team; a team that won gold in the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto.
The Intercounty Baseball League cleared up just about all of the fallout from the Guelph Royals' leave of absence from the league. The league announced Wednesday that the Royals were suspending operations for the rest of this year, leaving the IBL with seven teams and plenty of loose ends to sort out.
Roy Halladay and Vladimir Guerrero will get most of the headlines this weekend in St. Marys, but in the maelstrom that is Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame weekend, two local players will find their way into the hallowed hall of stars that have had great impact on the game in Canada. Halladay was an ace with the Toronto Blue Jays while Guerrero was a dominant hitter with the Montreal Expos. Their official induction will be Saturday, culminating a three-day celebration of the game.
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".
