PHILADELPHIA -- Richie Phillips, a tough-talking Philly lawyer who became a negotiator for Major League Baseball umpires and NBA referees, has died. JuJu Smith-Schuster Steelers Jersey . He was 72. Phillips death was reported by The Philadelphia Inquirer, which said he died Friday of cardiac arrest at his second home in Cape May, N.J. His death was confirmed by the DAnjolell Memorial Home in Broomall, where a viewing is scheduled Thursday. "We got so much because of Richie -- pensions, vacations, better salaries," former umpire and board member Don Denkinger told The Associated Press by telephone on Tuesday. Phillips represented NBA referees in the 1970s and 80s and led MLB umps from 1978 until 1999, when a failed tactic of mass resignations cost 22 umpires their jobs. The setback prompted umpires to abandon Phillips Major League Umpires Association and form a new union, the World Umpires Association. Phillips liked to tell the story of how, at age 13 while growing up in the Philadelphia area, he led a strike of altar boys at his parish over a dispute about their tips. In years to come, his work stoppages involved a lot more money. Under Phillips, big league umpires held a seven-week strike in 1979, another walkout at the start of the 1984 playoffs and a brief interruption on opening day in 1991. There were other work stoppages, too. "He had his feet on the ground and knew what he wanted," Denkinger said. "Hed keep talking until 6 a.m. if thats what it took." A little more than that, sometimes. "Every once in a while, hed stage a breakdown. Throw something through a wall or something to get attention," Denkinger said. "But he wanted baseball to know that we were important, that we were valuable and worth it." When Phillips became the umpires negotiator in 1978, rookie umpires made $17,500. By 2000, they earned at least $95,000. Denkinger, who started as an umpire in 1969 and retired in 1998, credited Phillips with getting umpires their first pensions and vacations. Phillips often came across as loud and brash. Many umpires praised him over the years, saying his personality was what it took to deal with MLB hierarchy. But Phillips reign came to a sudden end in 1999. Trying to press his negotiating points, he convinced umpires to turn in their resignations all at once, hoping to force MLB into a corner. Many of the umps followed Phillips advice. Instead, MLB accepted 22 of them and minor league umpires took their place in early September on a permanent basis. By the end of the year, Phillips also was out of a job. "Richie would always tell the guys to stick together and wed get things hammered out, and thats what they did," Denkinger said. "When it all came apart in 1999, he didnt have everybody, he didnt have 100 per cent." Umpire Brian Gorman, the crew chief at Yankee Stadium for Tuesday nights game between Cleveland and New York, said Phillips won a lot of benefits for the umpires. "Sadly, hell probably be remembered for the resignation strategy," Gorman said. "Its too bad, because he did a lot for us. A lot of the things he did for us 20 years ago are still helping us now."

SOELDEN, Austria -- Lara Gut got the defense of her overall World Cup title off to a shining start Saturday.The first womens champion from Switzerland in more than two decades, Gut dominated the season-opening giant slalom on a sun-soaked Rettenbach glacier.On an icy slope under crisp, blue skies, Gut held on to her first-run lead to clinch a comfortable win as she led Mikaela Shiffrin by 1.44 seconds for her 19th career victory. The American also finished second in Soelden last year after winning the race in 2014.Its a good start, Gut said. Soelden is always a special race. Its very steep. Its very difficult. You have to charge and not think too much. I had to fight against my head, as I had been thinking too much in the past 24 hours. I dont know why. Usually I just ski and enjoy what I am doing. I am the one who laughs.Gut said she thanked Austrias Marcel Hirscher, the mens overall champion, for giving her some useful advice.Marcel told me yesterday, You just have to ski. I knew I could be fast, but you still have to deliver, she said. Today wasnt my easiest day. It was a fight against myself. What I am going to take with me from today is that I was stronger than my head, I was stronger than that what I was thinking.Gut held a 1.42-second lead over Shiffrin after the first leg and was put under pressure by the Americans near-flawless second run.

I can be happy with it, but I also know I can be better, Shiffrin said. I really wanted to start off the season strong. Its always better to win, but Lara was very strong, just like Federica llast year. Derek Carr Jersey. Today she raised the level. I am not super far off, but I am still looking for that second GS win.Shiffrin praised her Swiss rival for holding herself together.She is like the queen of hammering the course and risking and really, really racing, Shiffrin said. I am getting close to it, but I have a lot of respect for her to be able to come through the first race of the season.Marta Bassino of Italy, the only other skier to finish within two seconds of Gut, earned her first top-three result. It was the 100th podium in giant slalom by an Italian woman. Only Austria, Switzerland and France have more top-three results.I just tried to ski like in training, Bassino said through an interpreter. This is an amazing result. It means a lot to me.Former world champion Tessa Worley of France placed sixth, 2.88 off the lead, while Eva-Maria Brem of Austria, who took the giant slalom title last season, was 5.14 seconds behind in 26th after two disappointing runs.Petra Vlhova of Slovakia started 55th but posted the fastest second-run time to finish eighth.Several top contenders were sitting out the race. American standout Lindsey Vonn said she will focus more on the downhill and super-G this season. Two-time former overall champion Anna Veith of Austria and 2010 Olympic GS champion Viktoria Rebensburg of Germany were recovering from injuries.Organizers said the race was attended by 14,000 spectators, including the 77-year-old Heinrich Messner.

NEW YORK -- After popping out with the bases loaded in the fifth inning, all Vernon Wells wanted was another shot to help make a winner of Ivan Nova. DeShone Kizer Womens Jersey . He got one all right: Ninth inning, bases jammed. This time Wells came through. He singled in the winning run with one out, helping a marvelous Nova and the New York Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles 3-2 Friday night for their season high-tying fifth straight win. "Given the way we played in Minnesota we needed to come here and continue that momentum," Wells said of the Yankees four-game sweep of the Twins. "It took a little while, but Nova kept us in the game all night." Nova (3-2) gave up a two-run homer to Matt Wieters in the second inning then stifled the Orioles the rest of the way in a spot start for Hiroki Kuroda. He allowed three hits in his first career complete game, struck out 11 and walked one. Baltimore closer Jim Johnson (2-7) took over the ninth with a 2-1 lead and gave up a leadoff single to David Adams. Brett Gardner reached when Johnson failed to field his bunt for an error in front of the mound. "The thing that really changed it was screwing up the bunt," Johnson said. "That was trying to do too many things at once instead of just taking the out." Ichiro Suzuki then sacrificed the runners to second and third and Robinson Cano was walked intentionally to load the bases for the second time Friday -- to vociferous boos. Manager Buck Showalter made a mound visit and Johnson promptly walked Travis Hafner to tie it. The struggling Wells then grounded a single past diving third baseman Manny Machado and ran toward first with his arm raised in the air. He was mobbed by his teammates and doused with a sports drink during an interview on the field. "Those are times like when you turn a triple play where you see the kid come out in us," Wells said. Manager Joe Girardi said Wells earned a start because he played well during the series in Minnesota, but he ended the night still hitting just .235. The Yankees snapped a five-game skid -- including a sweep last weekend in Baltimore -- against the Orioles this season. The Orioles have lost three of four. Johnson blew his sixth save of the season, and second in last four opportunities. Nova lost his place in the rotation after an ineffective start to the season and going on the disabled list. But he kept Baltimore off-balance all the way through. The 26-year-old right-hander came off the mound after getting the third out in the ninth to high-fives and pats on the back from his teammates. "Its unbelievable feeling the way Ive been throwing the ball lately," Nova said. "To put myself in the position I am right now." The Yankees steadiest pitcher since last year, Kuroda came through a bullpen session Friday without problems. Depending how he feels Saturday, he could take his next turn in the rotation. Girardi said after the game Nova will "probably start again." The memory of the long homer Chris Davis hit against him last weekend in Baltimore may have caused Nova to throw a little too inside to "Crush" to start the second. After hitting Davis with a pitch, Nova gave up a drive to Wieters that bounced off the top of the wall, just out of the reach of Wells, and into the left field stands for a 2-0 lead. Wieters came in batting .429 (9 for 21) with three homers against Nova. But that was all Nova would give up, dominating the Orioles with a nasty curveball. Nate McLouths single leading off the sixth was Baltimores only hit after the second. Nova got some help from a steely defence. Luis Cruz, the latest fill-in for Derek Jeter at shortstop, made two nifty grabs of grounders and strong throws for outs in the third. Then second baseman Cano made a pair of difficult plays to keep the Orioles off the bases in the fourth inning. Cruz drove in New Yorks first run in the fourth with a single to left field off Miguel Gonzalez. Wells, on second base, slid into home just ahead of Wieters tag. Wieters slapped Wells high on the leg as Wells cleat scraped home plate. Showalter came out to dispute the bang-bang play with plate umpire Gary Darling. The Yankees then loaded the bases with one out in the fifth against the pitcher with the best road ERA (2.99) since the start of 2012 -- minimum 100 innings. They came up empty. Adams walked leading off. One out later Suzuki doubled to right field and Cano was walked intentionally. Gonzalez then fell behind 3-0 to Hafner before getting him to hit a fly to centre field that was too shallow for Adams to test Gold Glover Adam Jones arm. Wells then popped out to first base. Gonzalez was done after six innings and 104 pitches. He yielded one run and four hits, but tied a season high with five walks -- one intentional. "Miguel was fortunate," Showalter said. "But thats him. Hes going to bend, but not break. You give up four (walks), I think five with an intentional, you have to consider yourself lucky to get through that with one run." NOTES: Orioles LHP Wei-Yin Chen (right oblique strain) will throw Saturday or Sunday and the team will then make a decision. If he comes out without any issues, Showalter said he could be activated from the DL in five or six days. Showalter said a six-man rotation was an option after Chen returns. ...

"Still day-to-day, I guess," the 27-year-old said. "Thats all I can do. Wake up every morning, hope it feels better, get some treatment and come out here and have a good practice."

RENTON, Wash. Kevin Love Cavaliers Jersey . -- Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson said he hasnt had any swelling in his sprained right ankle and will be ready to roll Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams.They [the doctors and trainers] are kind of shocked that its doing this well, really not any swelling at all or anything like that because I got on it right away and have been hammering it right away, Wilson said.Its the mindset of just being able to overcome a situation. Ultimately, I started off in the boot the first night, Sunday night. And then Monday morning I just got off of it because I knew I wanted to play on Sunday. I knew I cant play in a boot, so Ive got to find a way.Wilson injured the ankle in the third quarter of the Seahawks Week 1 win over the Miami Dolphins. He was hobbled down the stretch, but he stayed in the game and did not miss any snaps, capping the 12-10 comeback victory with a 2-yard touchdown pass to Doug Baldwin with 31 seconds remaining.Wilson was a full practice participant Wednesday.For treatment, Wilson has been relying on the teams training staff as well as his own personal physical therapist, who flew up from California and is staying with him this week.I dont think Ive really slept more than probably six hours all week, Wilson said. Probably slept two hours every night so far. Just trying to do everything I can to make sure that Im at my best come Sunday.Asked how the injury will impact what hes normally able to do, Wilson said, I dont think itll affect it.Wilson has never missed a game or practice in his five-year NFL career.

KP Bhaskar, Delhis head coach, has said a systematic overhaul of Delhi cricket is needed if they are to stay competitive in the Ranji Trophy. His comments followed Delhis meek surrender to Karnataka inside eight sessions in Kolkata. Bhaskar, who himself had played 95-first class matches over 14 years and was a prolific run-scorer for a strong Delhi side in the 80s, termed the current system ineffective.The chaos surrounding their build-up to the domestic season every year, he said, was one of the reasons why Delhi struggled. The chaos isnt entirely of the teams making; administrative hassles, Bhaskar said, couldnt entirely be looked at in isolation as it impacted both age-group and senior sides competing under the Delhi & District Cricket Association (DDCA) banner.This year, the coachs appointment was made with less than a month to go for the season, and the team didnt get together until two days before their Ranji Trophy opener against Assam in Vadodara. A two-day practice game that was scheduled for September 26 and 27 against Uttar Pradesh was called off because the DDCA couldnt find a ground to host the match. This even as curators and ground staff threatened a strike for unpaid wages and bonuses.I got the team two days before the season started, Bhaskar said, when asked about Delhis preparation when compared to some of the other sides which had pre-season conditioning camps and tournaments. There was not much of mental preparation. Whatever was happening was whatever they were doing on their own, so I really dont know. That is something which we need to work on. The system has to fall into place; we have to have more opportunities of playing exposure, and try to build a team before getting into the Ranji Trophhy. Brad Daugherty Jersey. .Last year, too, the team had to wait till the eve of their Ranji Trophy opener to know who the coach was. Ajay Jadeja, initially appointed head coach, didnt travel with the team because he felt his opinions and inputs dont matter. He was replaced by Vijay Dahiya. Then there was also the issue of factions within the DDCA naming three different probables lists for the Ranji Trophy. Their pre-season camp was further mired in controversy, with nobody to oversee the initial nets sessions at the Feroz Shah Kotla and no certainty over who was running the team.Expecting the players to perform without a proper system in place, Bhaskar said, was tough. Among the things that needed to change, he said, was the system of merely playing in 40-over games in the build up to the Ranji Trophy. Look at our batting, he said. We dont have three-day formats; we dont really play in pre-season tournaments like Buchi Babu or KSCA invitational. So currently we are only finding ways to work around it.Another aspect Bhaskar wanted looked into was the talent pool; he said it wasnt being streamlined properly because of selection issues. Last season, we had 45 different players playing for Delhi Under-23s. So think of it, how long it is going to take for the talented players from there to reach the Ranji Trophy?Tomorrow, if things dont improve, we may have 50 players playing across eight games in the Ranji Trophy. Things need to be put in place, but at least weve made a start now. Things are looking good. Justice Mudgal has taken the initiative [of cleaning up the DDCA mess]. Lets hope things improve.

We just decided during the game to try to see if Blaine could give us a spark.Kaepernick had the least-productive game of his NFL career in the 26-6 loss to Chicago, going 1-of-5 for 4 yards and taking five sacks in three quarters before coach Chip Kelly opted for Gabbert.After the game, Kelly indicated that the move probably wasnt permanent, saying it was made in an effort to ignite the stagnant offense.I thought we needed a spark on offense and needed to get something going, Kelly said Sunday. [We] knew we were going to be throwing every down, so give Blaine a shot. That was it, nothing more.Modkins made the announcement Tuesday in part because Kelly is not in California. He is attending the funeral of his father, E. Paul Kelly, in Maine and is expected to rejoin the 49ers this week.Modkins said no consideration was given to taking a look at Christian Ponder, the only one of the three quarterbacks on the roster not to play this season.
