2010 All-star game

All-Star Game news and notes

Moment of silence for Steinbrenner

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Baseball took a moment to honor The Boss on Tuesday night.

Before the All-Star Game, a moment of silence was held for George Steinbrenner, 80, who died early Tuesday.

A tribute to the Yankees owner was shown on the video board at Angel Stadium before the game. Fans and players then honored Steinbrenner with a brief silence.

Shortstop Derek Jeter and other members of the Yankees wore black armbands. The U.S., Canadian and state of California flags were lowered to half-staff.

The Yankees will wear uniform patches for the rest of the season to remember Steinbrenner and longtime public address announcer Bob Sheppard, who died at age 99 on Sunday.

The patch for Steinbrenner will have his initials and include "The Boss." It will be worn above the interlocking NY on the pinstriped home uniform and above the "York" on the road grays.

The patch for Sheppard features a microphone and will be worn on the left sleeve of the home and away uniforms.

    Soccer

    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

  4. Bats come to life, but Rays' freefall continues (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
  5. 'Free speech rally' cut short after massive counterprotest

    Nation

    BOSTON — Thousands of demonstrators chanting anti-Nazi slogans converged Saturday on downtown Boston in a boisterous repudiation of white nationalism, dwarfing a small group of conservatives who cut short their planned "free speech rally" a week after a gathering of hate groups led to bloodshed in Virginia.

    Thousands of people march against a “free speech rally” planned Saturday in Boston. About 40,000 people were in attendance.
