Yankees make most of schedule change, defeat Orioles 9-3

If the New York Yankees must adjust on the fly to a sudden change in the schedule, there's no team they'd rather face than the Baltimore Orioles. Baseball's weird season reached another level of strange Wednesday night when New York stepped in for the Miami Marlins and ruined Baltimore's home opener, hitting three home runs to back right-hander Gerrit Cole in a 9-3 victory.

Golf: Day splits with long-time coach Swatton

Jason Day has parted ways with mentor and swing coach Colin Swatton after a two-decade partnership that yielded a major championship and the world's top ranking.

Under Swatton's guidance, Day claimed the world number one ranking and held it for 51 weeks during a dominant 2015-16 period.

California should unlock entrepreneurs’ creativity to help save the nation’s economy

Coronavirus is forcing businesses across the country to figure out new ways to stay afloat—and few are feeling the pinch more severely than barbers and cosmetologists. In an industry that requires in-person meetings and close physical contact, protecting customers’ and employees’ health requires creative new solutions. One idea seems like common sense: Given the evidence that infections are more likely indoors than outdoors, some salons have suggested moving operations outside. That’s what Corin...

Two years after Janus, more workers are exercising their freedom of association

Two summers ago, in Mark Janus v. AFSCME, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down as unconstitutional the arrangement that forced government workers to pay union fees for the privilege of keeping their jobs. The court ruled that forced dues violate government employees’ First Amendment rights because public-sector unions are political organizations, bargaining with public officials over such matters as government spending, employee discipline, budgets, and taxation. The Janus decision is a necessary ...

Inglewood mayor’s ex-girlfriend wants $12 million for post-breakup firing

Hoornstra: Minor league baseball players face an awkward present, uncertain future

In the second inning of his Mid-Island Men’s League career, it happened. Shea Spitzbarth allowed a hit – a double down the line. The runner didn’t score, and Spitzbarth still hasn’t allowed a run across 12 2/3 innings for his temporary team, Butchy’s Heat. In fact, he hasn’t allowed a hit or a walk since that first game. You might say things are going a little too well for Spitzbarth, who split last season between Double-A and Triple-A in the Dodgers’ organization. “Some innings I only get up to...
