Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error A judge has ruled that San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow, beaten outside Dodger Stadium by hometown fans nearly four years ago, is not entitled to a retrial of his allegations against former team owner Frank McCourt, court papers obtained Friday show. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Victor Chavez issued his ruling Wednesday. He heard arguments Jan. 9 and took the issue under submission. On July 9, a jury awarded roughly $18 million in damages to Stow, who was beaten into a coma outside Dodger Stadium on March 31, 2011. But after a lengthy deliberation, the panel found that only Los Angeles Dodgers LLC, the business entity created by McCourt when he owned the team, and Stow’s two assailants were liable. The panel exonerated McCourt of any culpability in the attack that left Stow, now 45, with permanent brain damage. Stow’s attorneys had asked Chavez to order a retrial of the part of the case against McCourt. They argued that Chavez wrongly excluded six key pieces of evidence, including a letter in which then-Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig accused McCourt of using club assets to pay his personal debts. They also said the jury should have been allowed to hear how much the Dodgers spent on security in 2011, evidence of McCourt’s divorce from his wife, Jamie, and the amount McCourt paid to acquire the Dodgers. Stow, a former paramedic from Capitola, was punched from behind by Louie Sanchez after the 2011 home opener between the Dodgers and their longtime rivals. Sanchez and fellow Rialto resident Marvin Norwood then kicked Stow, a father of two, after he fell to the ground. Stow’s attorneys maintained security was insufficient and that no officers or guards were present in parking lot 2 when Stow was attacked. They said Sanchez and Norwood should have been ejected from Dodger Stadium hours earlier for unruly behavior and that more uniformed security at the stadium could have deterred their misconduct. But McCourt’s attorneys said the team spent more money on opening day security in 2011 than in previous years and that the attack on Stow happened so fast, security personnel would have had to have been right there as it developed in order to prevent it. Sanchez, 32, and Norwood, 34, pleaded guilty in January 2014 to carrying out the attack on Stow and were sentenced to eight- and four- year terms, respectively.

2 Jun 2019 Schmidt, 16, becomes youngest-ever Brabazon winner Tags: Alwoodley Golf Club, Brabazon Trophy Yorkshire 16-year-old Ben Schmidt became the youngest-ever winner of the Brabazon Trophy today, finishing on 13-under par and winning by five shots at Alwoodley Golf Club, Leeds.Schmidt pips major winners Sandy Lyle and Charl Schwartzel who were both 17 when they won the English Men’s Open Amateur Stroke Play – one of the most sought-after titles in international men’s amateur golf.“Being the youngest makes it even more special,” said Schmidt, who was under par in all four rounds of the championship, scoring 69 64 69 69.“I’m just so pleased I got over the line, it takes a very long time to play the back nine when you’re in the lead!”The teenager, from Rotherham Golf Club, is the second successive Yorkshire player to win the Brabazon, following Nick Poppleton’s success in 2018 – and the third in the last four years.Schmidt, who was cheered by the large crowd of spectators as he signed off with a par on the 18th, said: “This means so much. It’s nice to keep it in Yorkshire and it was awesome to see so many supporters, friends and family.“I’m just so glad I’ve managed to keep the lead from day two, that’s probably been the toughest part, but I got it done and it’s just amazing!”This was Schmidt’s first appearance in the Brabazon and he took advantage of an exemption gained when he won the 2018 English Boys’ County Champion of Champions tournament.His first goal was to make the cut and he did that in style, taking the lead after the second round when he shot seven-under 64. He held on to the lead after round three, but it was cut to one shot when Cornwall’s Harry Hall set a new course record 63.The two players were paired together for the final round with Schmidt setting out 11-under par and Hall (West Cornwall) 10-under.Hall, 21, made a blistering start, with two birdies in the first three holes to overtake Schmidt. But the teenager took the lead again when he holed a 25-footer for birdie on the fifth, while his rival bogeyed the hole.The players were back on level terms after Schmidt bogeyed the short ninth with an uncharacteristic three-putt. But that was his last mistake. He played the difficult back nine in two-under par, while Hall dropped three shots over the closing holes.The youngster had a four-shot cushion as he played the last and his winning margin was extended when Hall’s par putt horseshoed out of the hole.“I played the back nine really well,” said Schmidt. “Those last five or six holes are really tough and I didn’t do any damage, I hit the centre of the greens and gave myself chances with the putts.”Schmidt, a member of the England boys’ squad, also won the George Henriques Salver awarded to the leading GB&I player aged under 20.Hall was championship runner-up on eight-under par, while Scotland’s Euan Walker was third on seven-under after a closing 66.Click here for full scoresImage copyright Leaderboard Photography

Powered by Firework Gareth Bale refused to hold Real Madrid’s crest before the game against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday. Before the beginning of the match, there was a photo session of the players in the starting lineup of the Los Blancos. Bale was standing in the middle of the whole group. Consequently, Raphael Varane gave the club crest to Bale.Advertisement However, the Welshman refused to hold the crest. After getting the crest from Raphael Varane, he immediately passed it to Daniel Carvajal. The crest should have been in the middle of the picture, but it was not present there. Needless to say, the picture seemed to be really awkward.Advertisement Gareth Bale’s future at Real Madrid was quite uncertain during the summer transfer window of 2019-20 season. The move to a Chinese Super League club was almost finalized for the speedy winger. However, the proposed transfer was cancelled at the last moment and Bale stayed at Real Madrid.Gareth Bale’s performances at the beginning of the season for the Los Blancos have been impressive. Though, it is being reported that Bale is not happy with the team management of Zinedine Zidane. The situation between Gareth Bale and Real Madrid’s management team is deteriorating every day and things could end in a bitter way.Advertisement ALSO READ:Watch: A brilliant rap constructed using only football player puns!

ARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 30, 2016)–Sunday Rules, scratched out of last Saturday’s Grade II Santa Monica Stakes, took on the boys for the first time in her nine-race career and responded with a rollicking 2 ¼ length win in the $150,000 Donald Valpredo California Cup Sprint today at Santa Anita.Trained by Phil D’Amato, the Nick Alexander homebred 5-year-old mare by Tribal Rule was ridden by Edwin Maldonado and stopped the timer for six furlongs in a rapid 1:08.42.“She’s a small filly, but she has such a long stride,” said Maldonado, who hadn’t ridden her since August of 2013 at Del Mar. “I just want to thank Phil and Nick Alexander for giving me the opportunity to get back on her…I was confident she could win this race.”The second choice at 9-5 in a field of seven, Sunday Rules paid $5.80, $4.80 and $3.80. Out of the General Meeting mare Sunday Dress, she picked up her eighth career win and with the winner’s share of $90,000, increased her earnings to $534,840.“We missed the Santa Monica because of a spider bite,” said Alexander. “Her hock blew up, but it was the spider that caused it…I know it’s (taking on males) not always something you should do and I was ready to take the blame for it, but it worked out.”“As soon as (runner-up) Raised a Secret came to her, she spurted out a length or so and I thought she’d maintain it,” said D’Amato. “Edwin got her in a great rhythm and she maintained it all the way to the wire.”Ridden by Santiago Gonzalez, Raised a Secret was off at 16-1 and paid $11.40 and $7.40Solid Wager rallied from last around the far turn to finish third, 1 ¾ lengths behind Raised a Secret. Off at 15-1, Solid Wager paid $5.80 to show.Fractions on the race, which were all set by the winner, were 21.61, 44.26 and 55.98.
