Angels make Mike Trout’s 12-year, $426.5-million deal official

TEMPE, Ariz. — Maybe all the mystery about Mike Trout’s future shouldn’t have been such a concern after all. “This is where I wanted to be all along,” Trout said in a statement included in the Angels’ official announcement of their 12-year, $426.5-million deal with their superstar. A day after the news broke, the Angels finalized the deal on Wednesday night, completing the largest contract in the history of North American sports.

Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw accepts delay in start of his season

GLENDALE, Ariz. — For the first time since 2010, Clayton Kershaw will watch the pageantry of Opening Day from the dugout and he knows how that will make him feel. “Disappointed,” the Dodgers left-hander said after throwing to hitters for the first time this spring Wednesday. “Being out there on Opening Day is special and I don’t take that for granted.

UC Irvine eager for chance to avenge last year’s loss to Kansas State

If there’s one thing that UC Irvine enjoys, it’s avenging a past loss. Last year’s loss to Cal State Fullerton in the Big West Tournament championship game only made this season’s 28-point win over the Titans in the title rematch that much sweeter. When the Anteaters watched the bracket reveal on Selection Sunday, their anticipation grew as they waited for Louisville’s opponent to be revealed.

Only as good as your name? You Beto believe it! 

When it comes to evaluating people we don’t know much about, typically the first thing we judge them by is their name. Fair or not, somebody’s name causes us to make certain assumptions about their age, gender, where they come from or even what their religion might be — as there generally aren’t too many Millie’s under the age of 80, women named Bob, or Mormons named Muhammad. The cues in a name can lead us to positive reactions, or make us skeptical and suspicious. This is human nature, and no ...

Could February showers bring March rattlesnakes? ‘Snakebite season’ begins

After a wet winter, a warmer spring that began Wednesday will send hordes into the great outdoors just as the local snake population awakens from a long hibernation, setting up a dangerous scenario resulting in snakebites and emergency room visits, experts warned. The above-average rainfall ushered in more insects, not to mention the super blooms of wildflowers and a migration of Painted Lady butterflies — all food for rodents. This bounty creates a buffet for mice, gophers and ground squirrels,...
