The UP Sports Hall of Fame has saved a seat or two for the Copper Country.
The 2020 class had to wait an extra year due to COVID, but it was worth it. At a ceremony Sunday held at Island Resort and Casino in Harris, near Escanaba, Jennifer Brody of L’Anse was one of the new inductees. Brody was a three-sport star in high school, playing basketball, volleyball, and golf. She went on to be captain at Michigan State University on the varsity golf team and was on the LPGA Tour for seven years.
The Class of 2022 will have their own moment in the sun next May. It includes Calumet’s Bruce “Cukie” Coppo. UP Sports Hall of Fame Executive Secretary Dennis Grall summarizes Coppo’s credentials.
“He has spent eight decades on U.P. hockey rinks as a player, coach and official. He is the only person to officiate Michigan High School Athletic Association hockey for at least 40 years.
He won 13 Gibson Cup titles as a player and coach and coached the Calumet Wolverines to the national championship in 2003 and three runner-up finishes. He was also an assistant coach at Finlandia University for two years.”
A huge ninth inning for the Angels turned a tie into a laugher. Los Angeles pushed across six runs, all with two outs, against reliever Gregory Soto. The big blast, a grand slam from Jo Adell.
Miguel Cabrera is still looking for number 500. He was 0-2 with two walks on the night. Jonathan Schoop and Robbie Grossman had RBI singles in the third and fifth innings respectively. The final was 8-2.
The Brewers shutout the Cardinals 2-0, improving to 73-47 on the season. Corbin Burnes picked up the win going six innings and allowing only two hits. Kolton Wong and Omar Narvaez had the RBIs for the Crew.
Dan Mulbach’s 17-year career is one of the longest in Detroit Lions history. It officially came to on Tuesday as the long snapper was cut by the team. Head Coach Dan Campbell made the announcement at his daily press conference in Allen Park. Mulbach turned 40 years old this week.
The Lions are down to 85 players on their roster, as required at this point in training camp. Linebacker Shaun Dion Hamilton went on injured reserve, while defensive tackle Michael Barnett and wide receiver Chad Hansen were cut. The team held practice Tuesday night with several Red Wings in attendance, including captain Dylan Larkin.
The Green Bay Packers made a trade with the New York Giants Tuesday, swapping cornerbacks. Isaac Yiadom is coming to Wisconsin, a former third round pick by the Denver Broncos. Josh Jackson is heading the other way.
