Bryce Harper has had some semblance of a national spotlight on him ever since Sports Illustrated dubbed him “the most exciting prodigy since LeBron” in 2009. In an effort to expedite his draft eligibility, Harper earned his GED after 10th grade... Despite the wood bats and being several years younger than both his teammates and rivals, Harper demolished the older competition to the tune of. 443/. 526/. 987 and a record-smashing 31 home runs in 66 games. Less than two years and 500 minor league at-bats later, Harper was in the big leagues as a 19-year-old with the Washington Nationals, mashing dingers against pitchers who made their big league debuts when he was in elementary school. Earlier this offseason, a certain Bryce Harper Is Young fun fact started getting some buzz. This fun fact originated in the 2015 Baseball Prospectus Annual. When Harper was on a rehab assignment in Potomac last June after tearing a ligament in his thumb, he was still nearly two years younger than the average player in the High-A Carolina League. In fact, the next time Harper faces a pitcher younger than him in a professional game will be the first. Hoffman had Tommy John at the end of his junior year at East Carolina, but the Jays still took him 9th overall in last year’s draft.
“From Havana to Ventura,” the mural project that is front and center at this year’s ArtWalk Ventura, is an inspiring tale about abiding friendship, torn barriers, artistic collaboration, determination, good intention and a bit of magic. Endearingly labeled “the Cubans,” Pedro Pulido, an illustrious sculptor and painter, along with Victor Pina, a distinguished former aeronautical engineer, are two Cuban creatives who, over the years, built a close relationship with some prominent... During Pulido’s six-month stay at ArtCity, he created Embargo, a striking sculpture representative of a time in Ventura when Thompson Boulevard, a main thoroughfare, was under construction and said to be populated by prostitutes. In 2002 Victor Pina participated in Lorenzo DeStefano’s production of the film Los Zafiros: Música desde el Borde del Tiempo , based on the famous Cuban musical group of the 1960s that has maintained its popularity into the 21st century. During their time together, a friendship grew between the two men, and similar to the fame of Los Zafiros , it has endured over the years.
After the final race of the Class 6A girls state swimming and diving championships on Saturday, Free State High junior Cierra Campbell looked at the time on the clock and immediately went over to the edge of the pool to hug senior Courtney... The Firebirds completed an undefeated season by winning a state championship and broke a state record in their last race at the Capitol Federal Natatorium. It was the second state title in school history, also winning in 2009. They edged runner-up Shawnee Mission East, 424-399, to snap SM East’s five-year reign as champion. The Firebirds took second at state for the past two years and had laser-like focus all season to make sure they reached their ultimate goal. Caldwell added: “I touched (the wall), and it kind of all hit me at once that it was my last race as a Firebird. Free State won seven of the 12 events, including all three relays. Caldwell won the 100 freestyle and backstroke, Campbell was first in the 200 freestyle, and junior Sydney Sirimongkhon-Dyck won a title in the 50 freestyle. In the final race, the 400 freestyle relay — Caldwell, Cierra Campbell, Claire Campbell and Eliza Anderson — shattered the state record with a time of 3:30. 00, more than one second better than the previous record set in 2010 by Washburn Rural. Before that last relay, team scores were announced, and the Firebirds knew they clinched a state title, as long as they didn’t get disqualified in the race. “Courtney gave me a hug before the relay, and I almost started crying,” said Anderson, the Rhode Island signee.
“To omit numbers and have an abstract object that moved on the wall was something no one was doing at the time,” he says. Once or twice a year he would design a group of about eight clocks, which would then be presented to Howard Miller and put into ...
