Toronto Blue Jays pitcher J.A. Happ was throwing a pitch, just like any other one he has thrown in his career, to Desmond Jennings of the Tampa Bay Rays. Unlike most of the pitches he's thrown in his career, though, this one was hit directly at his head.
Easily the best manager in the Premier League era of English football and one of the best in the history of the sport, Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will be retiring at the end of this season.
Lionel Messi has been battling injury for weeks, resulting in him missing even a UEFA Champions League match against Bayern Munich. He returned this weekend against Real Betis in La Liga competition and, on his first shot, scored a wonderful free kick goal.
The NHL Playoffs are upon us, which means that sixteen teams have dropped the gloves in a quest to lift Lord Stanley's Cup. Apparently, it also means that the Montreal Canadiens and Ottawa Senators have dropped the gloves looking to kill one another in this crazy fight, known as a line brawl.
One of the best rivalries in basketball right now is going to play out in the Eastern Conference semifinals as the Chicago Bulls look to upset the prohibitive favorites to win the NBA Finals, the Miami Heat. We will be providing live updates right here from tip off to post game.
With Russell Westbrook out for the Oklahoma City Thunder, Kevin Durant has had to carry even more than his usual workload to keep his team afloat. He did just that yesterday, carrying the Thunder to a Game One victory in the Western Conference semifinals against the Memphis Grizzlies thanks, in large part, to this game winning jumper.
Derrick Rose has not played in a game for the Chicago Bulls for over a year. After blowing out his knee in round one of last year's playoffs against the Philadelphia 76ers, he has been rehabbing, with a return during this post season a possibility. However, it does not look as if he is going to return to the court, as he is unlikely to play in Game One of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Miami Heat.
Just like Mike Rice at Rutgers, another Division I men's college basketball coach is being accused of abusing his players. This time it is Wisconsin-Green Bay head coach Brian Wardle, who is being accused by a former player, of doing the same.
All Borussia Dortmund had to do was hold Real Madrid to a 2-0 win or worse to advance to the UEFA Champions League final. They did just that, allowing two goals to Madrid, but winning the two legged semifinal 4-3 on total goals scored, holding on in the game's final minutes.
In the two games the Oklahoma City Thunder have been without Russell Westbrook, the Houston Rockets have managed to stay competitive, nearly winning both. They managed to earn a two point victory in Game 4, thanks to a missed layup from Serge Ibaka at the buzzer.
Whenever a big time news story breaks, you can always rely on Twitter to give you both insightful commentary and a representation from the depths of the Internet, both in 140 characters or less. This is a profile of the latter, as many people have taken it upon themselves to try and tear down NBA player Jason Collins for coming out as gay.
Jason Collins made history yesterday by becoming the first active player in major American sports to come out as gay. This is, by and large, a great thing that will hopefully lead us down a path of eventually not caring about the sexuality of anyone in this country and viewing everyone as equal. Some, however, including ESPN analyst Chris Broussard, are less enthusiastic about it, calling it an open rebellion to God.
