His former teammate Hank Greenberg was also there, and had brought along two balls for the inductees to sign, but was too bashful to approach them. Owen wasn’t, and got all 11 to sign. He kept one for himself and gave the other to Greenberg.“With autographed balls, very few can you trace to the point of origin, the point of signing, where you know the circumstances of where it was acquired,” said Dan Imler, vice president of SCP Auctions. “It’s incredible. It almost puts you in that moment, which is very, very rare for a ball.”Several signed balls have survived from that day, but most have signatures from other players or dignitaries that diminish their value.The names weren’t haphazardly scrawled all over the ball, either. It was as though Owen had future collectors in mind when he collected the signatures in dark, lasting ink. And their placement doesn’t seem random either. On one panel of the ball, stacked atop each other, are Cobb, Ruth and Wagner, at the time considered the three greatest players of all time, with Walter Johnson, then considered the greatest pitcher of all time, hovering above them.“Ultimately that panel of Cobb, Ruth, Wagner is what puts it over the top,” said Kevin Keating of Professional Sports Authenticator, who verified the ball’s legitimacy. “Those are the elite of the elite. The fact that he got those guys the way he did, in that perfect order on one panel, it’s almost as if it’s by design.”ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIESlast_img read more

Southampton complete £6m move for Romania international

first_imgSouthampton have completed a move for Romania international defender Florin Gardos.The 25-year-old has joined from Romanian champions Steaua Bucharest for a fee believed to be £6million, and has signed a four-year deal at St Mary’s.Gardos, who has 12 caps for his country, becomes Ronald Koeman’s seventh signing for Southampton following the £12m arrival of Shane Long earlier in the day.The Saints boss told the club’s official website: “I am very happy to have Florin here. He’s still a young player so he can develop himself a lot more, and that’s part of the ambition of Southampton.“From the beginning, after [Dejan] Lovren left the club, we paid a lot of attention to Florin.  Everybody knows the big names and the big players, but it’s always more difficult to find one who’s not so well known.“The information the club has given to me about him has been very good. For now and for the future, we have a very good central defender.”Gardos added: “This is one of the happiest days of my life. It’s the biggest step of my career so far. Coming to the Premier League is a very big occasion for me, and Southampton was a team that had a really good last season so this wasn’t really a hard decision.“I’ve had a very good first impression of the club. There’s a very big difference between what I had back home and what is here.“I’ve always said that coming to Premier League would be a dream come true, and luckily I’ve been able to achieve that dream now.” 1 New Southampton defender Florin Gardos last_img read more

Bush administration pressures China, others to punish junta in Myanmar

first_imgThe government does face international criticism, though. The United Nations, under pressure from the Bush administration and European leaders, is sending a special envoy, Ibrahim Gambari, to Myanmar, which agreed to allow him to visit after China intervened, officials said. In a meeting on Thursday, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice confronted a midlevel Burmese diplomat, according to officials who were present, telling him it was “bizarre” that he was defending his government while pictures emerged of troops shooting unarmed monks. On Friday, Rice expressed disappointment that the U.N. Security Council could not act more forcefully, largely because of opposition from China. “I will say on Burma that given what is going on in the streets in Rangoon, I would have hope that the Security Council would have taken stronger action,” Rice said in New York, referring to the country’s capital by its alternate name. U.S. policy does not recognize the military government’s decision to change the country’s name to Myanmar and continues to refer to it as Burma.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Another senior official said the administration would try to persuade China to offer sanctuary to the leaders of the junta, in the hope that this would encourage them to leave Myanmar. Other ideas include getting China and India to halt investment in new oil and gas projects, cutting off bank lending in places like Singapore to freeze Burmese accounts. The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were discussing internal policy deliberations. Many of the techniques are modeled on the sanctions designed against North Korea. Officials were surprised at how quickly banks ceased dealing with that country as soon as they realized it could affect their access to the American banking system. “International institutions take our list seriously,” one of the officials said, referring to banks. The official added, “They quickly realize the downside of dealing with these people is greater than the upside.” At least for the moment, officials said, the junta leaders appeared to be gaining some ground over the protesters, cutting off their access to the Internet, so that photographs and video of the street confrontations would not circulate around the world. WASHINGTON – The Bush administration stepped up its confrontation with the ruling junta in Myanmar on Friday, and officials said they were searching for ways to persuade China and other nations to cut off lending, investment and trade into the country. But in a sign of how limited Washington’s leverage is against the country, which has long been the target of U.S. sanctions, officials said they were concerned that China, a trading partner and neighbor of Myanmar, would block any serious effort to destabilize the Burmese government. The administration appears to regard the violent crackdown on Burmese monks as a long-hoped-for opportunity to get other Southeast Asian nations to rethink their insistence that they should not interfere with the internal politics of their neighbors. The hope is that U.S. pressure might force the leaders of the ruling junta into a political process that would drive them from power, if not from the country. “What we are trying to do is speed their demise,” said one senior U.S. official. “The question is, do we have the diplomatic and economic influence to hit a bank shot here,” by persuading Beijing, in particular, that its dealings with Myanmar could embarrass it as the 2008 Olympics approach. last_img read more

Man ‘shocked’ to wake up in Letterkenny cell after Buncrana Paddy’s Day binge

first_imgA Buncrana man, who was found asleep on Buncrana Main Street in the early hours of St Patrick’s Day, was shocked to wake up in a Garda station cell.25-year-old Dean Duffy, from Lisfannon, Fahan, was charged with being intoxicated in a public place. Inspector David Murphy told Buncrana District Court that Gardai believed Duffy to be ‘a danger to himself and others’ and described him as being ‘unsteady and unable to answer’.“He was lying asleep, extremely intoxicated,” Inspector Murphy said.Solicitor Ciaran McLaughlin said his client had been ‘out socialising early for St Patrick’s Day’.“He wasn’t abusive in any way,” Mr McLaughlin said.“The cells in Buncrana weren’t operating at the time and he was taken to Letterkenny. He woke up in Letterkenny Garda Station and was shocked to find himself in a cell. He had no memory of the incident.”Judge Gerard Jones said the matter should serve ‘as a wake-up call’ and ordered Duffy to pay €200 to a local cancer charity.Man ‘shocked’ to wake up in Letterkenny cell after Buncrana Paddy’s Day binge was last modified: March 8th, 2018 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:buncranaBuncrana District CourtDean DuffyJudge Gerard Joneslast_img read more
