Kimbe Cutters holds first selection trials

first_imgBY GRACE FOSSINGKE DWU journalism student West New Britain’s franchise club, Kimbe Cutters for the 2019 Digicel Cup, has now trimmed its 67-man train-on squad to 36 after first selection trials at the weekend. This number is expected to be trimmed down to 30. Newly-appointed coach, Jessie Alunga said ongoing selections were done based on age, height, weight, discipline and basic skills. Alunga said the boys went under intensive training for 12 weeks with the elimination taking course since July when the local level government games began. He said the players are fit but need further training to fully meet the semi-professional games standard. Invitations have been sent to Goroka Lahanis, Waghi Tumbe and Rabaul Agmark Gurias for trial matches to determine the combination and the make-up for the final squad. Cutters team manager Freddie Kumai said the matches are expected to be held between January and March next year. Alunga said the team was not intending to recruit at this stage but may do so after the final trials. They will basically be targeting experienced players to have a balance side that is needed to perform well and maintain results. The 36-man squad: Bob Willson, Jimmy Jason, Alex Rova, Oswald Gela, Timothy Pola, Jack Voku, Alois Luba Jr, Dominic Anis Jr, Sam Voku, Nevel Volu, Nick Smith, Terence Tausulu, Michael Kura, Joe Vovola, Francis Nasa, Enock Basio, Damien Paul, Irenius Malaniu, Martin Xavior, Tony Vorot, Steven Bruno, Leni Kitaun, Simon Johnson, Hubert Vitolo, Frederick Romagio, Theodore Gavuri, Anthony Longa, Emmanuel Depit, Jonathan Oki, Ben Misili, Esron Panga, Darius Wartoto, Alvin Tom, Donald Valuka, Danny Gorea and Lynold Molpoio.last_img read more

Paqueta: Giampaolo confused us

first_img Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more. Visit: https://subscribe.premiersports.tv/ Milan midfielder Lucas Paqueta claims there is “no more confusion” at the club following the arrival of Stefano Pioli. The Brazilian, who has struggled to recapture the form he showed towards the end of last season, did not hold back when asked about the differences between Pioli and predecessor Marco Giampaolo. “I believe that with [Stefano] Pioli the team is more at ease. Before, someone was not in the right position or someone else in a position they didn’t like. “If a player plays in a position they prefer then they play better, and this is happening now.” Giampaolo is known for not communicating greatly with his players. Indeed, Fabio Quagliarella revealed in September that the former Sampdoria Coach only spoke to him “five or six times in three years”. The ex-Empoli boss also had a strained relationship with Paqueta, urging him to be “less Brazilian” in his approach. “Pioli is more direct in asking us certain things, and this has made things better for us. “When you receive too much information, you get a bit confused, but with him everything is clear.” The 22-year-old has made eight appearances for the Rossoneri this term, providing one assist.last_img read more

Maria Pepe: the New Jersey girl who sued to play baseball with the boys

first_imgShare on WhatsApp Support The Guardian Since you’re here… Maria Pepe is not a household name, but hundreds of thousands of girls around the country have her to thank for the right to play baseball. This weekend, over 140 girls from the Northeastern United States have gathered in Edgewater, New Jersey, for the east coast’s first ever all-girls baseball tournament. That this is possible is due, in large part, to a 12-year-old girl who was told she was not allowed to play Little League ball and was brave enough to fight back.In 1972, Maria Pepe decided to try out for a new Little League team with her friends in Hoboken, New Jersey. She’d grown up playing ball in the streets with the boys in her neighborhood and so, when the Hoboken Young Democrats held a tryout, it seemed only natural that Pepe would show up. “My friends all went in and signed their name and I stood at the door but my coach came out – his name was Jimmy Farina – and he asked why I wasn’t signing up,” Pepe told the BBC World Service in a July 2018 interview (Pepe declined to be interviewed for this story). “I looked at him and said, ‘You think you would take a chance and let me sign up? My name’s Maria.’ And he said, ‘Can you play? And I was like, ‘Yeah,’ there’s no question I could play.”Pepe made the first cut, and then the second. A 10 May 1972 article from the Daily News noted that Pepe batted over .300 in her first two games with the team. The Bridgewater (New Jersey) Courier-News observed, “Maria … played right field and third base for the team when she wasn’t at her primary position – the pitcher’s mound” and “her fastball is rated at least equal to her teammates”. But word had gotten back to Little League headquarters in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, and they were not happy. After Kathryn ‘Tubby’ Johnston played one season of Little League in 1950, the rules were changed to state that girls were “not eligible under any circumstances”. The league threatened to pull the city of Hoboken’s charter – jeopardizing hundreds of boys’ access to baseball – if Pepe wasn’t removed from the team.

Baseball Share on Facebook Share on LinkedIn Topics Share on Twitter Her coaches were some of her biggest advocates. “She plays for us because she is a good hitter and an outstanding fielder,” the Young Democrats’ manager, Carmine Ronga, told the Daily News. “If the national office says drop her or lose Little League baseball in Hoboken, we’ll drop her, but it would be unfair.” But after three games, that’s just what they had to do. Pepe says that she was offered the opportunity to be the team’s scorekeeper, which she did for one game but she told the BBC that “being out of the uniform and just keeping score was so extremely frustrating that I knew I couldn’t do that anymore.”Pepe’s story caught the attention of the National Organization for Women (Now), who filed a gender discrimination lawsuit on her behalf. Little League brought in experts to testify why girls should be excluded from playing baseball with boys. Creighton Hale, a physiologist and executive of Little League, Inc., testified that a study from Japan showed that “female bones can take less twisting, less weight before being crushed and bend less before snapping” and “male muscles are stronger, men have a quicker reaction time and move quicker,” according to The Central New Jersey Home News. Creighton went on to conclude that “a girl batter standing 46 feet from the pitcher – the distance from the plate to the mound in little league baseball – would be slower in getting away from a beanball than a boy” and an injury to the face would be “disastrous” for girls from “a cosmetic point of view”. There were arguments speculating about the problems that would arise if a girl was injured and her pants had to be taken off on the field; speculation about the risk of a woman developing breast cancer from “being tagged out on the boobs”. “None of this stuff seemed to matter to me… yet these were the arguments,” Pepe told the BBC. “I just kept saying, ‘Mom maybe the judge will ask me to come and show I could play,’ like that was all that mattered to me.”For Pepe, it was a lot to handle. Despite the fact that she was “a mentally strong” kid, she “did have some hurt deep down inside”. She said she would run home every day after school to find out if a verdict had been reached, and would pore over the day’s newspaper to read about progress in the case. “It was a tough experience as a child, trying to understand it all and thinking there was something wrong with me, they’re telling me I shouldn’t play ball,” she said. “And it was hard. Those things are hard to digest when you’re 11.” By the time the ruling came back, in 1974, Pepe was too old to play in Little League. But it was good news for all the girls who would come after her. The judge ruled in favor of Pepe, saying, “the institution of Little League is as American as the hot dog and the apple pie and that part of Americana should not be withheld from girls”. Twenty similar lawsuits followed, and Little League amended their charter to make their rules and regulations non-gender specific.Today, over 100,000 girls play youth baseball and at least 15 have made it to the Little League World Series. Baseball for All, a nonprofit that aims to support and grow the future of women’s baseball, was founded in 2010 and held their first national tournament in 2015. The inaugural BFA Maria Pepe Baseball Series honors the girl who made it all possible. “Girls can play baseball today because Maria Pepe stood up for their right to play,” said Justine Siegal, founder of Baseball For All and the first woman to coach for a Major League Baseball organization.While BFA has been at the forefront of advocating for girls to play baseball, the rest of the baseball world is beginning to catch up. In 2015, Major League Baseball hosted its first Trailblazer Series, an all-girls tournament. This year, they added an all-girls Breakthrough Series and are working on other projects. “It’s extremely important to baseball to the [MLB] commissioner that all young people have an opportunity to play our game if they choose to,” says Tony Reagins, the executive vice president of baseball and softball development at Major League Baseball. “With each event we put on the interest has grown.”However much progress there has been since Pepe played, girls still face an uphill battle to play hardball. Many of the girls persevere through pressure to switch to softball, exclusion from all-star teams, heckling and verbal abuse, and more sinister things. Earlier this year, a New Hampshire girl made headlines when it leaked that youth baseball coaches planned to tell their pitchers to throw at her head until she quit. Luckily, there is a network of all-girls baseball teams cropping up to provide a supportive playing environment. The Boston Slammers, who have several all-girls teams, reached out to the player’s family after seeing the news reports, and she now plays with the Slammers 11U (11-and-under) team.Reagins says that MLB is committed to continuing to support the growth of the girls game, which will involve a culture shift and ensuring that everybody – coaches, parents, other players – receives the message that baseball isn’t just for boys. “What my message would be going forward is we encourage every young lady who wants to play our game to go out and play, play Little League whether it’s with boys or other girls, follow your dreams,” he says.The Slammers are one of the teams traveling to New Jersey this weekend for the inaugural Maria Pepe Baseball Series. It’s one of many honors that Pepe has received in her home state since she fought for the right of girls across the country to play the game they love. The batting cages at the field where she played in Hoboken have been named after her. And in 2004, she was invited to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Little League World Series in Williamsport, in honor of the 30th anniversary of the court ruling.When she arrived at the tournament, she met Creighton Hale for the first time, the man whose name she’d known only as the person testifying against her in court all those years ago. “He shook my hand and he said, ‘I want you to know my granddaughter plays.’ I think it was his way of saying he had come full circle. And it was like a healing moment,” Pepe told the BBC. “I feel like I get to play forever through all the girls who play today.” Read more Serena Williams has to rise above stereotypes whether she’s right or wrong Share via Email Reuse this content Share on Messengerlast_img read more

Florida’s Billy Donovan Campaigns For Anthony Grant To Keep His Job At Alabama

first_imgBilly Donovan being interviewed.Following Alabama’s loss to Florida in the SEC Tournament this afternoon, many believe Anthony Grant’s time with the Crimson Tide will soon be over. The 48-year-old coach has been leading the program since 2009, compiling a 116-83 record and making the NCAA Tournament once (in 2012). Billy Donovan is not among the people who think Grant should be fired. The Gators’ coach, who had Grant on his staff in Gainesville, Fla., for 10 years, campaigned for his former assistant to keep his job following their game Thursday afternoon. Grant is 0-10 against Donovan at Alabama. “I don’t think people have any idea how great of a coach Anthony Grant is” – Billy Donovan— Graham Hall (@Graham311) March 12, 2015Billy Donovan on Anthony Grant “People don’t understand just how outstanding of a coach he is… He took over a very difficult situation.”— WVUA-FM Sports (@Capstone_Sports) March 12, 2015Billy Donovan stumping for Anthony Grant keeping job. Talks tough situation he took over at Bama, importance of developing young men.— Reid Forgrave (@ReidForgrave) March 12, 2015BillyD gives impassioned endorsement of Tide coach/close friend Anthony Grant. “Put it this way: Alabama better hope he comes back.” #Gators— Chris Harry (@GatorZoneChris) March 12, 2015Billy Donovan fervently defending Anthony Grant, says if Alabama knew what was good for them, they’d bring him back next year.— Tyler Thompson (@MrsTylerKSR) March 12, 2015It’s not too surprising that Donovan thinks highly of Grant and wants him to keep his job; they’re former co-workers and likely remain close. Will Alabama hold onto Grant, though? Kevin Scarbinsky of AL.com reported earlier today that the Crimson Tide may be turning in favor of keeping their head coach. “The more you talk to people around the program, the more likely it appears that Grant will return for his seventh season as head coach,” he wrote. Alabama (18-14, 8-10 SEC) is a contender for the NIT and will likely play more games this season. Grant’s future in Tuscaloosa, Ala., probably won’t be decided until after the season ends.last_img read more

Mark Dantonio Appeared To Subtweet Jim Harbaugh, Michigan Before Deleting Tweet

(Photo by Gregory Shamus/Getty Images)Earlier tonight, Michigan lost a commitment from three-star defensive lineman Rashad Weaver. Weaver claimed the Wolverines staff stopped reaching out to him, and that head coach Jim Harbaugh had told him that there was only a 50/50 chance he’d have a scholarship for him on National Signing Day next week. Shortly after the Weaver news began circulating, Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio dropped a somewhat-cryptic tweet consisting only of the phrase “The righteous shall prevail.” This would appear to be a not-so-veiled reference to the Michigan situation, and Dantonio quickly deleted the tweet. But, Twitter being Twitter, you know someone got a screen shot of it before it disappeared.Lol mark dantonio quickly deleted this but I think we all know what he was referencing pic.twitter.com/G1YQa4QdW9— D2 (@ddycio) January 26, 2016 To add to the intrigue, Michigan State recruiting coordinator Curtis Blackwell tweeted the exact same thing.The righteous shall prevail….— Curtis Blackwell II (@MSUrecruiter) January 26, 2016Seems pretty clear what the intent was here.
