Madison Bumgarner - 2015 - Rich Yee

Madison Bumgarner is rounding into All-Star form and turned in another overpowering effort against the Dodgers May 21, blanking the SoCal rivals 4-0. Further helping his own cause, MadBum launched his seventh home run -- off Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw! -- in the third inning to start the scoring. His ERA is now down to 2.84.

San Jose Quakes - 5-24-15 - Kenneth Wong

The scoreboard tells it all. Chris Wondolowski's 100th career goal earned the San Jose Earthquakes a 1-1 draw versus Orlando City SC on Sunday afternoon at Levi's Stadium. The 11-year veteran becomes just the ninth MLS player to hit this milestone.

Kingfish Pub - 5-2015

The Kingfish Pub has returned, bigger and better than ever. Respecting the past while moving into the future is a delicate balance, but the Kingfish Pub has succeeded in worthy fashion. After a hiatus of five months, which saw the Oakland pub move 35 yards to a new location (5227 Telegraph Avenue), this venerable institution has reopened in virtually its original condition, with a major addition: a 2,000-square-foot patio in back, along with a second bar and second shuffle board. Those entering the Kingfish step onto a large Cal logo honoring legendary Cal basketball coach Pete Newell -- a real touch of class.

Tough as Nails


by Andy Dolich 


 
We pay homage this Memorial Day to the true heroes who have sacrificed so that we can enjoy the American way of life. Sports are an integral part of the DNA that defines us as a country. We are lucky to have the freedom to pursue our interests, both as participants and fans.

 

Recently sports headlines have been inflated with stories about deflation, a PED cheater who broke a legend's record, spousal abuse, the murder conviction of a former all-pro tight end, and other forms of reprehensible behavior from a number of pro athletes.

 

But let's not let that distract us from Mike Conley of the Grizzlies and the Wizards' John Wall -- ultimate warriors during the second round of the NBA playoffs -- one with a broken face and the other with multiple fractures in his left wrist.

 

Fans are a picky bunch when it comes to debating the intestinal fortitude of their favorite players. Even though the Grizz and Wiz have been eliminated, take a moment and put yourself in the high-priced shoes and broken or displaced bones of Conley and Wall.

 

Mike Conley

"After I got the CAT scan they told me I did have a blowout fracture," Conley said. "I had three fractures at that point: one under my eye, one on the side of my eyebrow, and then there was one that was a displaced fracture almost where my jaw is."

 

Doctors told Conley that he had nearly broken his jaw and likely had a broken nose.

 

"OK, well, thanks for all that," Conley quipped in his retelling.

 

The good news, insofar as there can be any good news at all when breaking what amounts to the entire left side of your face, was that surgery was scheduled in Memphis once the swelling went down.

 

Conley spent a night in Portland after the injury. "The pain was excruciating, to be honest," Conley said. "But it was interesting because my pain wasn't necessarily near my eye. It was my mouth and my jaw and my teeth.

 

Surgeons installed a metal plate and four screws into the bone beneath Conley's eye, along with another plate and three more screws on the side of the orbital bone. His jaw was realigned to heal more naturally.

 

Days went by without Conley participating in any basketball activity. He traveled with the team for the start of their conference semifinal series against the Warriors but sat out Game 1.

 

When Conley took to the court for Game 2 he put on a show that no one saw coming. It was a heroic and gutty performance that made the series a series.

 

John Wall

Wall suffered five nondisplaced fractures in his wrist and hand. He stayed down for several minutes after a hard fall, but finished the game with 18 points and 13 assists.

 

The initial diagnosis was a wrist sprain, and Wall was expected to play in Game 2, but that plan was scrapped shortly before the game started.

 

"You never know when you've got a lot of energy and power going down on the ground, so I thought I broke it. Kind of the same type of injury."

 

Nondisplaced fractures are hard to spot on X-rays and MRIs when there's a lot of swelling. Wall's hand and wrist ballooned to an unnatural size, which could explain the initial misdiagnosis of a wrist sprain.

 

He sat out three games but returned in Game 5 and played quite well for a man with one hand.

 

The next time you weekend warriors start whining about a pulled muscle, bloody nose or some other minor malady, just pick yourself up and get back in the game.

 

And let us all take a moment to thank those who are serving or have served in our armed forces. Their fighting spirit and guts gave us the opportunities we often take for granted.

How Baseball Changed My Life

 

by Walter Champion

 

I am a law professor at Texas Southern University and the author of the casebook Baseball and the Law. My book includes a forward by Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Monte Irvin, who was also an all-star in the Negro and Mexican leagues.

 

Irvin, 96, still uses the stationary bike he borrowed from the New York Giants about 60 years ago.

 

My assistant at the law school six years ago was Stacie Gordon, Irvin's granddaughter. I'm now also the dean of international programs at Instituto Superior de Derecho y Economia, a graduate school in law and business in Madrid that introduced the master's in sports law 25 years ago, and is now co-sponsoring with Columbia University a master of laws in global sports/master's in sports management. Stacie plans to matriculate in this program in September.

 

My first sports law article was an op-ed piece in the Philadelphia Inquirer on the 1981 baseball strike. It prompted a scathing reply by the late award-winning cartoonist Tony Auth, who lampooned millionaire baseball players by portraying them as being chauffeured in Rolls Royces around Veterans Stadium with "Unfair" signs.

 

My mother, a longtime Phillies fan, had season tickets in 1980. She fell on the allegedly defective sidewalk at Veterans Stadium. By the time it got to court I was in law school, and a friend took the case. My mother was asked by three arbitrators whether she drank beer and wore glasses.

 

She responded, "Oh no, honey, I never drink beer in hot weather, and like you, I only wear glasses to read."

 

Although technically correct, my mother neglected to mention she'd had three gin-and-tonics in an air-conditioned luxury suite and had only one contact lens in place when she fell. (She was legally blind without contacts.)

 

Decades earlier, in 1957, I was at Philadelphia's Connie Mack Stadium when Hall of Famer Richie Ashburn of the Phillies fouled off several pitches during an at-bat, one of which struck a little lady with white hair. Unbelievably, as she was being carried out on a stretcher another Ashburn foul ball struck her!


 
Legally, she assumed the risk of the first injury but not the second, since she was unconscious. At that point, I too was struck, so to speak, with the feasibility of a book on baseball and the law.

 

Walter Champion is also the author of Sports Law in a Nutshell, Fundamentals of Sports Law and Sports Ethics for Sports Management Professionals.
