He tells The Associated Press that because of the damages from the coronavirus “baseball needs the Olympics now more than ever to boost the sport’s globalization, expansion and mass appeal.”MLB and its players’ association have so far only agreed to allow players not on 26-man active rosters or injured lists to take part in Olympic qualifying. The only MLB players permitted to play in the Premier12 tournament last year were those not on 40-man rosters. Not surprisingly considering the rules, the United States finished fourth and failed at its first chance to qualify for the Olympics. — The German Football League has relaxed its stance on finishing the season by June 30, when some players’ contracts expire. Games could continue into July if the alternative is leaving the season unfinished at the end of June, it said in a statement. Some games could be moved to neutral venues if they can’t be played at the original stadium because of infection risks locally. The league delayed a decision on how to decide final standings if the season can’t be finished.— A Turkish soccer club says eight people have tested positive for the coronavirus and training has been suspended. The club, Besiktas, says its president and a player were among those who tested positive. Turkish teams have resumed limited training sessions following the federation’s decision to restart matches in empty stadiums on June 12.— The Italian soccer federation has set up a pool of inspectors to check that teams comply with new health protocols and government decrees issued during the coronavirus pandemic. Serie A teams were permitted to resume individual training on May 4 while full team training can restart Monday. Lazio has reportedly already been training in groups of three players. The federation says inspectors will verify that practices are held according to the rules. The league said on Wednesday that it hopes to resume playing games on June 13 but the government has not approved a restart yet.— The three leading women’s pole vaulters get their turn to compete on Saturday in the second edition of the Ultimate Garden Clash. Katerina Stefanidi of Greece, Katie Nageotte (nah-JAHT’) of the United States and Alysha Newman of Canada will participate in the event but won’t be competing in their backyards because they don’t have the equipment at home. They will instead be at nearby training facilities. The winner will be the vaulter who clears the bar at 4 meters the most times in 30 minutes. The top men’s pole vaulters competed in the Ultimate Garden Clash at their homes earlier this month.NHL-NEWS Olympic basketball qualifying for Tokyo Games rescheduledUNDATED (AP) — The final four men’s basketball spots in the 12-nation field for the Tokyo Olympics will be decided next summer, the sport’s global organizing body said Thursday.It remains unclear, however, if those spots will be earned while an NBA season is happening or if NBA players will be able to take part.FIBA has pushed back the dates for the four remaining qualifying tournaments to June 29 through July 4, 2021, meaning they would end 19 days before the rescheduled start of the delayed Tokyo Olympics. The host nations — Canada, Croatia, Lithuania and Serbia — are unchanged.But if the 2020-21 NBA season starts later than usual, which is a distinct possibility because of the coronavirus pandemic, that might mean some players — such as Greece’s Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks and Serbia’s Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets — might be busy with playoff games at the same time. And under normal circumstances, NBA free agency would conflict with those dates as well. Besides Japan, which qualifies as the host nation, only three other teams have secured places in the baseball tournament. Israel was the surprise winner of the Africa/Europe qualifying event, while South Korea and Mexico earned spots during the Premier12. The last two nations in the six-team tournament will come from the Americas tournament and a final qualifying event in Taiwan.Australia, Canada, Italy, Japan, Mexico and the United States qualified for the softball tournament.PGA CHAMPIONSHIP-CHARLOTTEPGA Championship returns to Charlotte’s Quail Hollow in 2025PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla.

May 14, 2020 Snell is being advanced $286,500 as part of a March deal between Major League Baseball and its players’ union to deal with the delay in the season caused by the coronavirus pandemic. His $7 million salary would be cut about in half if the regular season is cut to 82 games.Teams say they would lose money if games are played in empty ballparks, and owners on Monday approved making a proposal to the union to base salaries on a 50-50 split of revenue. The union says the concept amounts to a salary cap, which players have long voted never to accept.Snell was 21-5 with an American League-best 1.86 ERA in 2018, then went 6-6 with a 4.29 ERA last year, when he broke a toe in his right foot on April 14 while moving furniture and missed nearly two months due to left elbow surgery on July 29.

Gordon Gee is vowing that the Mountaineers will play football this fall.

Those are among several cost-cutting moves announced by the conference because of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. The Division I conference will reduce qualifiers to four for men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball, men’s and women’s tennis, softball and baseball.— The IOC has set aside $800 million for loans and payments arising from the pandemic that forced the 2020 Tokyo Olympics to be postponed. It is still unclear how big the total postponement bill will be with Olympic organizers and public authorities in Japan facing extra costs estimated to run into billions for the one-year postponement. A sum of $150 million is for loans to sports governing bodies and more than 200 eligible national Olympic committees. They have cash flow issues while waiting for a revenue share from the Tokyo Games. The IOC is working on how to allocate the other $650 million.— The English Premier League has received government backing to resume next month — if games become more accessible to fans and the world’s richest soccer competition provides financial support across the English game. The top division is the most advanced in its planning to restart amid concerns the three other professional football leagues in England could lack the funding to resume without ticket revenue from supporters. While the national coronavirus lockdown is starting to be eased, mass gatherings are still banned and fans are not allowed to attend sports events.— Germany’s Bundesliga (BOON’-dehsh-lee-guh) soccer clubs will be allowed to use five substitutions per game when the season resumes on Saturday.

This year’s PGA Championship was rescheduled for Aug. 3-9 at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco because of the coronavirus pandemic. In other developments related to the coronavirus pandemic:— The PGA Tour Champions has decided to combine 2020 and 2021 into one season.

Obviously in a world as professional as elite football nothing can be left to chance. One of the aspects that in the last years has worked until the minimum detail is the nutritional area, that is to say, the diet of the players.
