Hero umpire helps prevent woman from jumping off bridge before working Pirates-Rays game

Major League Baseball umpires have one of the toughest jobs in the sport. They never have a home game, and no fans come to the stadium to cheer them on. Maybe that should change, thanks an umpire like John Tumpane.

Tumpane was in Pittsburgh on Wednesday, in town to work the series between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Tampa Bay Rays. He spotted a woman climbing over the railing on the Roberto Clemente Bridge near PNC Park.

Zack Hess spelled Lange in the eighth, and he needed just 23 pitches to work his way out of the last five outs. The big boy pitcher currently sports the Wild Thing haircut shave from the Major League franchise on the back of his head, and he dealt absolute heat to strike out the day’s final batter.

That’s a big time celebration for the hurler, and synecdoche for LSU on a grander scale, insofar as they were crushed by 12 runs just days previous. Skipper Paul Mainieri was asked about Hess’ personality after the big win, and, well:

The Tigers and Beavers will meet to decide one of the College World Series’ final two teams on Saturday, time to be announced.

Zack Hess has kindly agreed via tweet not to strangle his day’s starter after such a masterful performance despite Lange calling him gross on Twitter what with Lange holding the Beavs down to just one run in the victory. Thank you, Zack Wild Thing Hess, you’re the best.

Dear Lange, Great job today on the 30th Win. And thank you for the compliment. Now I won’t strangle you in your sleep. With love, Hess ??

NHL Expansion Draft: Vegas chants for Marc-Andre Fleury as Penguins bid farewell

If the Vegas Golden Knights were to uncover a franchise face among 30 other teams, the obvious choice was Marc-Andre Fleury.

Toward the end of the NHL’s awards show and expansion draft Wednesday, it was the now-former Penguins goaltender who drew the largest ovation from the crowd at T Mobile Arena when his name was announced as Vegas’ 29th pick of the evening.

Indeed, Fleury, long beloved by fans in Pittsburgh, instantly becomes the Knights’ most marketable player as the franchise set out to fill seats in a brand new market.

That much was evident by the reception.

One fan screamed, I love you! Fleury, doing an interview, stopped mid-sentence and responded, I love you too!

I’m not looking to be the face of much, he told reporters after the fanfare settled. I didn’t expect the ovation. It was so crazy. We’re really excited to get this started.

Kariya appeared in a promotional video for the Ducks last season. He said Monday the headaches stopped a year after his playing career ended, adding, I feel really good. These days he surfs three to four days a week and enjoys skiing and snowboarding in the winter months.

This is fine for Gaudreau.

After rocky negotiations with the Canadiens, Radulov became enchanted with the Stars, in part by their substantial contract commitment and in part by the roster they’ve been improving before his signing.

Instead, the uncertainty surrounding Crosby, named a Hart Trophy finalist earlier Monday, only adds to injury woes that the Penguins have managed thus far.

The Capitals were 1-5 all time while trailing 2-0 in a playoff series before Monday and improved to 9-19 in Pittsburgh during the playoffs.
