Grateful Dead: A look back at the band’s magical year of 1970

The Grateful Dead released two albums in 1970 — “Workingman’s Dead” and “American Beauty” — and they changed the band’s trajectory forevermore. “These are the two albums that eventually really established the Grateful Dead for the long haul,” says Dennis McNally, the band’s official historian.

Beer company bashes Astros with new brew

In January, the league said that Astros players near the dugout had hit garbage cans to let its batters know what pitch was coming next during the club's 2017 championship season.

The sign-stealing scandal rocked the baseball world during the offseason, leading to the firing of Astros manager A.J. Hinch and General Manager Jeff Luhnow.
