Mitch Williams resigned Tuesday as manager of the Atlantic City Surf. The former Philadelphia reliever, known as "Wild Thing," left the Atlantic League team "to pursue other business opportunities," the Surf said.
Talks for a baseball World Cup have become bogged down by drug testing rules. Baseball's international governing body will not sanction a World Cup unless there is testing that meets Olympic guidelines, a decision that complicates plans to launch a tournament in March 2005. Cuba would not participate in a tournament that is not approved by the International Baseball Federation (IBAF), and the Japanese commissioner's office was noncommittal. IBAF officials informed major league baseball of the stance during a meeting last month. "We can't have a competition without anti-doping tests," IBAF president Aldo Notari said. Baseball Talks between the commissioner's office and the Major League Baseball Players Association are ongoing. The union generally has opposed IOC drug testing rules.
A federal judge asked the Alabama Supreme Court for guidance Tuesday in deciding if Sports Illustrated can be forced to reveal confidential sources used in a story about former Alabama football coach Mike Price. U.S. District Judge Lynwood Smith ruled earlier that an Alabama law protecting newspaper, television and radio reporters from being forced to reveal sources doesn't extend its protection to magazine writers. Time Inc., which owns Sports Illustrated, appealed the ruling, saying the judge should ask the Alabama Supreme Court whether the state law protects magazines along with other news organizations.
