Sport Red Sox bench coach might have best handwriting in history
AP Source: Red Sox cheating probe will stretch into spring
FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Major League Baseball will not have a decision in the Boston Red Sox sign-stealing investigation this week, a person with knowledge of the probe told The Associated Press, meaning the team will open spring training without knowing if it will be punished. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity Tuesday because there was no formal announcement. Commissioner Rob Manfred said last week that he hoped to have the investigation wrapped before the start of spring training; Red Sox pitchers and catchers reported Tuesday and have their first workout Wednesday.
These days, official documents never are handwritten. But, if a need should arise for someone to hand write another Declaration of Independence, or something, Jerry Narron is the person to call.
The New Boston Red Sox bench coach delivered his first lineup card prior to Sunday’s spring training camp with the Baltimore Orioles, and it was a thing of beauty. No joke: Narron might have the best penmanship in the history of sentient life.

Ben McAdoo resurfaces, former Giants coach lands on Jaguars staff
Very few coaches are as lucky as Adam Gase, to fail at one head coaching job and immediately find another job as head coach. Ben McAdoo is following that path. McAdoo, who was fired as New York Giants coach and will always be a sore subject with Giants fans, is back in the NFL after a year off. He will be the Jaguars’ quarterbacks coach, the team announced on Wednesday. It’s not where McAdoo was a couple years ago, or even right before the Giants promoted him to be head coach, but it’s a start. Ben McAdoo isn’t popular in New YorkMcAdoo will forever be known as the coach who ended Eli Manning’s consecutive starts streak.

Impressive. Like, really impressive.
(Also, have the calligraphy vs. handwriting debate on your own time.)
Narron was introduced Saturday as the Red Sox’s new bench coach. A player for eight years in the big leagues, Narron has served in a variety of coaching roles during his baseball career, including stints as manager of the Texas Rangers and Cincinnati Reds.
