Capt. Scott M. Bierwiler Coed Softball Tournament is April 25-26

The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 164 and American People Against Cop Killers (APACK) will host the inaugural Capt. Scott M. Bierwiler Coed Softball Tournament on April 25-26 at the Jerome Brown Community Center in Brooksville.

The event, organized by Detective Jason Jernigan, whose immediate superior was Bierwiler, will benefit the Bierwiler family. The 42-year-old Hernando sheriff's captain died after an early morning collision with a sport utility vehicle driven by 16-year-old Andrew Frank Morris on Feb. 19.

"We didn't have the fliers up that long and we were already getting a ton of calls," Michelle Jernigan said. "The response so far has been outstanding, but the unfortunate part of that is we can only accommodate 20 teams"

The cost per 14-player team for the 20-team field is $200 and the deadline to register is April 15. The tournament is double-elimination and trophies will be given to the champion team.

Proceeds specifically go to the Capt. Scott M. Bierwiler Memorial Trust fund set up through Washington Mutual Bank.

For information or register, e-mail or call Jason Jernigan at (352) 232-2983 or Michelle Jernigan at (352) 232-6097.

    The Heater

    MINNEAPOLIS — RHP Erasmo Ramirez was on the mound to finish Sunday's 15-inning marathon win over the Twins and will start tonight's game against the Rangers.

    The Rays’ Erasmo Ramirez throws 12 pitches in the 15th inning against the Twins to earn the save then says after the game that he’s ready to make his scheduled start against the Rangers: “My arm feels good.”

    The Heater

    MINNEAPOLIS — Before the Rays eventually won Sunday's 6½-hour, 15-inning marathon against the Twins 8-6, they did plenty to lose it. And we need to get that out of the way first.

    The Rays’ Evan Longoria enjoys a laugh after scoring, barely, to tie it in the ninth on Steven Souza Jr.’s two-out single.
  3. Tom Jones' Two Cents: ABC's Indy 500 coverage is stellar again

    TV and Radio

    Times columnist Tom Jones looks back at the best and worst from a weekend of televised sports.

    Best coverage

    Takuma Sato left, celebrates after winning the Indianapolis 500 as Helio Castroneves is a little late passing him. ABC’s coverage of the race is stellar throughout, with plenty of extras but no fake drama.

    Auto racing

    INDIANAPOLIS — Takuma Sato, a journeyman driver, became the first Japanese winner of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday when he held off three-time champion Helio Castroneves in a 230-mph wheel-rubbing duel to the finish.

    Scott Dixon’s car goes over the top of Jay Howard, soaring so high that Helio Castroneves drove under it while it was airborne. Stunningly, there were no serious injuries.
  5. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Sunday's Rays-Twins game

    The Heater

    The Rays won because they got two innings of good relief from each of the two pitchers who contributed to them losing Saturday's game, Danny Farquhar (who again struck out Miguel Sano) and Tommy Hunter, who both posted zeroes.
