Why the Cubs were ready for an intrasquad scrimmage on Day 2 of Summer Camp

  Why the Cubs were ready for an intrasquad scrimmage on Day 2 of Summer Camp It wasn't the production the venue had come to expect on Fourth of July, but any kind of baseball on the holiday was a victory during the coronavirus pandemic. It was just the second day of Cubs Summer Camp, and already the team had advanced to game simulations. Yu Darvish and Kyle Hendricks each took the mound, Darvish for two innings and Hendricks for three, with half the Cubs donning white jerseys and the other half blue.

Police said Brandon Hendricks was shot in the neck after an argument at a barbecue.

It happened around midnight near Davidson Avenue and West 176th Street in the Morris Heights section.

Hendricks’ coach, Nigel Thompson, rushed to the hospital.

“All his mom kept saying to me is, ‘We need to get him out of this neighborhood, we need to get them off to college,” said Thompson. “I never thought about the possibility of him losing his life.”

Ypsilanti Lincoln's Emoni Bates commits to Michigan State basketball on ESPN

  Ypsilanti Lincoln's Emoni Bates commits to Michigan State basketball on ESPN Ypsilanti Lincoln 2022 five-star small forward Emoni Bates made an announcement Monday on ESPN, committing to Michigan State basketball.Elgin Bates, Emoni's father, also said on the interview that the family is in the process of creating a preparatory school, and it wasn't immediately clear what that news meant for Bates' enrollment at Ypsilanti Lincoln entering his junior year. Bates wore an "Ypsi Prep Academy" shirt on TV.

Hendricks recently graduated from James Monroe Campus, where he was a standout basketball player. He was slated to attend St. John’s University in the fall.

His friends told CBS2’s Christina Fan he was a phenomenal athlete, and neighbors who watched him grow up said he was the community’s pride.

“It bothers me, you know. It’s always the innocent ones that get taken. It’s sad,” neighbor Pat Hargrove said. “They need to stop killing each other out here.”

Hendricks’ family is adamant he was not the intended target, but instead was caught in the crossfire.

“We all need to do some soul searching to figure out what we can do better,” a relative said. “Because 17-year-old children should not be dying in the manner in which they are dying.”

“This person who took his life obviously had nothing to really look forward to,” Thompson added. “When you have nothing to look forward to in life, it’s so easy to senseless take somebody else’s life.”

RIP Diddy I have so many fond memories of the short time that I spent with Brandon while he was with us on this Earth. He was a charismatic, humble young man. He listened and respected everyone. He was an awesome team mate. Thoughtful, kind and caring. Full of life and positivity. I’ve never met anyone who had anything bad to say about him. He was a remarkable basketball player. Incredible handle and quickness. He was our leader on and off the floor for the past 2 seasons. Just graduated from HS two days ago. His whole life ahead of him…why did he have to be taken from us so soon? I have so many special memories of Brandon that I’ll treasure for ever. Many of them on the court during our countless hours of practice. Many of them in the games. Win or lose we could always count on him to fight and give his best. Some of my fondest memories of Brandon was not on the court but in my Geometry class. Brandon was so inquisitive and intelligent. His questions, thoughtfulness and summaries always moved the class forward. He would bounce around the class helping his classmate until they got it. His effort in class was equal to his effort on the court…why was he taken away so soon? What can we do as a community and a society to prevent our Princes from killing each other so senselessly? I’m pretty certain that the bullets that took Brandon’s life were not meant for him. He wasn’t that kind of a kid. But those bullets should not have been meant for anyone. We need to find a way to get our young brothers to value not just the lives of others, but to value their lives. Two lives were lost last night. Two families will be devastated, and our hearts will be eternally broken. The senseless violence has to stop. We’ve lost a special part of our family. RIP Brandon.

Indiana mourns death of 2-time Hermann Trophy winner Snow

  Indiana mourns death of 2-time Hermann Trophy winner Snow INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Ken Snow, a two-time national player of the year, died Sunday, three days before his birthday. He was 50. Steve Franklin, director of education at Indiana Soccer, made the announcement Monday on Facebook. The Indiana athletic department said it confirmed the death through a family member. “It is with great sorrow that we pass along the news of yesterday's passing of Ken Snow due to complications from COVID-19," Franklin saidSteve Franklin, director of education at Indiana Soccer, made the announcement Monday on Facebook. The Indiana athletic department said it confirmed the death through a family member.

Police said another man in his 40s was shot overnight following a dispute in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. He is expected to survive.

The NYPD responded to at least 25 shootings this past weekend.

“We haven’t seen this since 1996,” NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan said in a radio interview Sunday. “There are a lot of reasons for it.”

Monahan said there are 1,200 people walking the streets who have been indicted for guns. Another 800 have been arrested for guns, but have not been indicted because the court system isn’t running.

Community leaders are demanding help for the city’s youth.

“This is only going to get worse if we don’t give them an outlet. Put the money in the budget. To the mayor and City Council, let’s get these young people back working, let’s get these centers open and let’s get them something to do,” said community activist Danny Barber.

The NYPD is looking for guidance on how to tackle the increase in violence.

“It is a tough job for the police. We’ve been told by community members, council members, who have the loudest voice, that they don’t want us interacting with people who are shooting off fireworks or drinking on the street,” Monahan said.

“The animosity toward police has just been absolutely unbelievable, and cops are a little confused right now what the communities want them to do, how they want their neighborhoods policed,” he added.

Police reported 63 shootings with 85 victims between June 21 and 28, compared to 26 shootings during the same time last year.
