When 'Baseball's Most Attractive Bachelor' Pitched His First No-Hitter

On June 30, 1962, Sandy Koufax pitched his first no-hitter for the Dodgers. Up against the New York Mets, Koufax struck out 13 batters and walked five to lead his team to victory. It was his first of four career no-hitters—a feat achieved, to this day, fewer than 300 times in the history of Major League Baseball. The following summer, LIFE put Koufax on its cover, calling him “The Mostest Pitcher: Most Wins, Most Shutouts, Most Strike-outs.” Southpaw Sandy, as they called the left-handed pitcher, said that his success in that position stemmed from his failure as a batter. Even as a kid, he knew enough about his own weaknesses to tell his coach, who tried him out at pitcher. It was perhaps no coincidence that the photo that graced the magazine’s cover could have doubled as a menswear ad, had they swapped Koufax’s baseball cap for a fedora. The magazine made no secret of his dapper looks, writing that on top of being “the best pitcher in the past decade,” Koufax was also a hot ticket among female fans. The description reads like a personal ad, save for the mention of his then-girlfriend Linda Kennon: He also stands out as baseball’s most attractive bachelor. Tall and 27, he has poise, a literary mind and a resonant, softly modulated voice. He lives alone in a suburban home with several oil paintings, a well-stocked library and a self-installed stereo system. His car is gold-colored and his girl was runner-up for the title...  

European Markets Fall As Greece Weighs

(RTTNews.com) - The European markets were languishing in negative territory on the last day of the quarter, after Greece decided to close banks and exchange in view of a referendum on Sunday that could decide the country's fate in the euro zone. The Mediterranean nation has said it would not make the 1.6 billion euro debt payment to the International Monetary Fund due today. Overall contagion effects in the event of a "Grexit" are expected to be limited as Greece accounts for less than 2 percent of the euro-area economy. On the economic front, Eurozone inflation slowed slightly in June after accelerating in May, flash data from Eurostat showed. Inflation eased to 0.2 percent in June, in line with forecast, from 0.3 percent in the prior month. German unemployment declined less than expected in June, data from the Federal Labor Agency reportedly revealed. The number of people out of work fell 1,000 in June from the prior month, while it was forecast to drop by 5,000. Germany's retail sales grew for the second straight month in May albeit at a slower pace compared to April, data from Destatis showed. Retail sales turnover advanced 0.5 percent from April, when it was up 1.3 percent. This was the second consecutive increase. Sales were expected to remain flat in May. France's producer prices declined again in May largely due to a sharp fall in refined petroleum product prices, the statistical office Insee said. Producer prices in the French market decreased 1.7 percent in May fro...

Liverpool FC comment: O'Driscoll appointment shows FSG's faith in Rodgers is ...

Many Liverpool fans will be underwhelmed by the appointment of Sean O’Driscoll as assistant manager. Some had hoped for a nod to the club’s glorious past with cherished names such as Pako Ayesteran, Jamie Carragher, Sami Hyypia and Robbie Fowler mentioned as possible contenders. Others wanted an outsider with a trophy-laden CV such as former Manchester United coach Rene Meulensteen. O’Driscoll, the current coach of England Under-19s, doesn’t tick either box – but his imminent arrival as Brendan Rodgers’ new No 2 is highly significant. It says more about owners Fenway Sports Group’s unwavering faith in Rodgers than even the £29milllion swoop for Roberto Firmino, Liverpool FC Manager Brendan Rodgers (left) with Mike Marsh and Colin Pascoe at Melwood Training Ground on December 4, 2014 in Liverpool, England. (Photo by Nick Taylor/Liverpool FC via Getty Images) When Colin Pascoe and Mike Marsh were off-loaded following the club’s end of season review, the perception was that Rodgers had been left isolated and vulnerable. That the Northern Irishman had been given a stay of execution following a wretched campaign but that FSG had forced sweeping changes upon him with his trusted lieutenants shown the door. The conspiracy theorists even wondered whether Pascoe and Marsh had been given the boot by Mike Gordon in the hope that Rodgers would fall on his sword and save Liverpool the expense of paying up the final three years ...  

Boy Who Never Gives Up Overcomes Physical Challenge to Excel at Sports

Aidan Duncan is happiest when he’s playing sports on a field or court. But the 12-year-old boy from Indianapolis, Indiana, is different from the other children on his teams. He was born with a partially formed left arm. “We found out that his left arm was not developing. It could have been because of his umbilical cord wrapping around his arm, they’re not quite sure,” his mother, Mona Mulvany, told “Good Morning America.” “They never did have an exact answer as to why this happened. A specialist told Aidan's parents that their son would have balance issues and that running would be difficult for him, but Aidan has defied those predictions by dominating the field in in football, soccer -- his favorite sport, basketball and baseball. “For the All-Star team, I’m probably tied for first with the house league team, I’m probably the fastest player on the team,” Aidan said, adding that he also likes to swim “for fun.” While he acknowledged that it “takes probably more effort,” Aidan, who has been playing sports since he was about 5 years old, said it “hasn’t been as rough as people think.” “It takes a lot of hard work and effort. And you can’t really give up. You’ve got to keep your head up and not give up,” he said, echoing a lesson taught to him by his parents.

Cedric Lee asks Sandiganbayan to defer his warrant of arrest

Businessman Cedric Lee on Tuesday asked the Third Division of the anti-graft court Sandiganbayan to defer the issuance of an arrest warrant against him for his graft and malversation cases in connection with the alleged anomalous release of local funds for a public market project. In a motion for judicial determination of probable cause filed before the Third Division, Lee said he was denied due process by the Office of the Ombudsman when it conducted its preliminary investigation on the complaint, which eventually led to the filing of the graft and malversation cases against him and former Mariveles, Bataan Mayor Angel Peliglorio Jr. Based on the complaint filed by the Ombudsman with the Sandiganbayan last week, the local government of Mariveles during the term of Peliglorio as mayor, released some P23 million to Lee's construction firm Izumo Contractors, Inc. in 2005. The money was meant for the construction of a public market. The Ombudsman said that based on its investigation, the fund was released to Izumo "even without procedural safeguards and guarantee of performance,” and that the project has "never commenced". “The need of holding in abeyance the issuance of warrant of arrest and/or recalling the warrants of arrest issued by this Honorable Court is a matter of due process which was denied to the accused-movants. It is a question of fundamental justice,” Lee said in his motion. Lee asked the court to first conduct a reinvestigation of ...  

World's markets brace for Wednesday's leap second

SINGAPORE, June 30 Financial markets around with world will open on Wednesday with a tinge of apprehension, not just because of developments in Greece or China, but because of an extra second.A "leap second" is being added to the world's clocks at midnight GMT on Tuesday, which could test the extremely sensitive trading systems of the modern algorithmic era, beginning with markets in Asia.The addition of the leap second is a decision taken by the International Telecommunication Union, a United Nations body, to harmonize atomic time with the sometimes imprecise time taken by the earth to rotate around its axis.While there have been several occasions since 1972 that leap seconds have been added to world clocks, this is the first time since 1997 that such a tweak is happening on a working day and in a high-speed electronic trading environment.The majority of global equity trading and a significant proportion of trading in bonds, currencies, commodities and derivatives, is done on electronic platforms governed by the international Financial Information Exchange (FIX) protocol."On the FIX systems, the tolerance limits on an order may make it look stale if the clocks are out of sync, which is the biggest issue," said one head of electronic sales at a European brokerage in Hong Kong.Stock exchanges, brokers and investment banks said they were working with their vendors and clients to ensure their internal clocks were brought into line."No one's actually expecting a big impact.

With a month to go, Microsoft issues new Windows 10 build with Edge browser ...

Microsoft on Monday released another build of Windows 10, the first with the Edge browser branding.With build 10158, Microsoft marked the one-month countdown to the final code launch on July 29.Prominent in 10158 -- which was issued only to testers on the "Fast" ring of Windows Insider -- is Microsoft Edge, the OS's new browser. "The Microsoft Edge branding is now included," wrote Gabriel Aul, engineering general manager for Microsoft's operating system group, on a Monday blog.Microsoft introduced the Edge nameplate in April after referring to the browser for several months by its code name, Project Spartan. Edge is the successor to Internet Explorer (IE), particularly IE11, and will be the default browser in Windows 10 on all devices, from PCs to smartphones. IE11, however, will continue to be packaged with the new OS on desktops, notebooks, 2-in-1s and larger tablets to provide legacy support for enterprises that run line-of-business Web apps and sites requiring the older browser.The name change demands some work on the part of users, who must first back up bookmarks previously saved in Spartan, then restore those and password-retaining cookies, said Aul.Microsoft also made several modifications to the browser with the debut of the Edge moniker, including an optional Home button, a password manager and customization options that let users tweak the new tab page so it better resembles the familiar look of IE11.Improvements and enhancements were also made to Cortana, Mi...
