FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The PGA Tour has made a quiet return into action after being disrupted for months by the coronavirus outbreak. There was a moment of silence at the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial in Fort Worth Thursday in honor of George Floyd. Commissioner Jay Monahan stood on the first tee and spoke about hopes of ending racial injustice. On the course, where there were no fans. The first-round leaders were Justin Rose and Harold Varner III.
UNDATED (AP) — NHL training camps will open July 10 if the league and players' union agree to resume the season. That's still contingent on the two sides figuring out health and safety protocols and the league choosing cities to host the games. The NHL and NHLPA say camps will also only open July 10 if medical and safety conditions allow. Setting a start date for camps allows the 17% of players overseas to make arrangements to return in light of quarantine regulations in the U.S. and Canada.
NEW YORK (AP) —The Detroit Tigers took a few more big swings at rebuilding their lineup. After selecting Arizona State slugger Spencer Torkelson to open the Major League Baseball amateur draft Wednesday night, the Tigers used their first four picks Thursday on players they envision joining him in the big league batting order. Ohio State catcher Dillon Dingler led off the draft’s second day as the No. 38 overall selection. LSU outfielder Danny Cabrera went 62nd overall and Rice shortstop Trei Cruz — son of former major leaguer Jose Cruz Jr. and grandson of Jose Cruz — went 11 picks later. Arizona State third baseman Gage Workman was the Tigers' fourth-rounder.
UNDATED (AP) — Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is expressing regret for not signing Colin Kaepernick when given the opportunity. Seattle brought Kaepernick in for a workout during the 2017 offseason and had another visit a year later canceled. At that time, Carroll said Seattle chose not to bring Kaepernick aboard because Carroll viewed Kaepernick as a starter, not a backup. In hindsight, he says he wishes he would have given Kaepernick a shot even if it meant a potentially awkward role as Russell Wilson’s backup.
DETROIT (AP) — A University of Michigan gymnast from decades ago is speaking out as a victim of Robert Anderson, the deceased campus sports doctor. Ward Black is 68 years old and lives in Las Vegas. Black says he was molested by Anderson during annual physicals and while seeking help for injuries, from 1969 to 1973. Black says he tried to speak to his coach about Anderson back in 1969, but Newt Loken “changed the subject.” Hundreds of former athletes have made complaints about Anderson. The university says it wants to compensate victims outside court.
