Every sport has one thing in common. It doesn’t matter if you use a ball, a stick, a wheel or a mouse — every sport lives and dies by one thing. And no, it’s not competition. The best game of the season could take place, but if no one is there to watch it, does it resonate as much? Does it have as much of an impact? No. Because one way or another, every single sport lives and dies by the fans. An electric crowd can turn the most boring of matchups into a must-see affair.
WEST SACRAMENTO â€” When I strolled into Raley Field on Friday I was there for probably the same reason the rest of the sellout crowd was there. I wanted to watch Madison Bumgarner pitch. It’s not often that a player of his caliber and star power rolls through Sacramento. The three-time World Series champion and 2014 World Series MVP was getting a rehab start as he is coming back from a sprained AC joint in his pitching shoulder and bruised ribs he suffered in a dirt bike accident in April.
VACAVILLE â€” Sometimes the game is just never in doubt. That was the case when the Davis American Little League 9-11 squad took on Vacaville American in the second round of the District 64 All-Star tournament Saturday in Vacaville. Two three-run home runs to open the first inning lifted Davis to the 18-10 victory over Vacaville as nearly everybody on the team contributed to the offensive explosion.
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".
