Sole player to survive crash in Russia dies from injuries
MOSCOW — The only member of a top Russian hockey team to survive a plane crash that killed 44 people died Monday of his injuries in a Moscow hospital.
The Vishnevsky hospital said Alexander Galimov, 26, died of the severe burns that covered about 90 percent of his body.
The crash of a chartered Yak-42 jet outside the western city of Yaroslavl on Wednesday took the lives of 37 players, coaches and staff of the local Lokomotiv Yaroslavl hockey club. The only other person to survive, flight crew member Alexander Sizov, was reportedly moved out of intensive care and into a general ward at Moscow’s Sklifosovsky hospital.
Mets put in Sept. 11 request for first-responder caps
NEW YORK — Mets player representative Josh Thole hopes to come to an agreement soon with Major League Baseball on a policy that would allow his team to wear emergency service-department caps during games on Sept. 11 every year.
Thole called the players’ association Monday, a day after the Mets were denied their request to wear caps honoring first responders on the 10th anniversary of the attacks. He said he wanted to discuss marketing and licensing possibilities but had not heard back.
Joe Torre, MLB’s executive vice president for baseball operations, told the Associated Press on Sunday the decision was made to keep policy consistent throughout baseball.
Ohio State issues response to more alleged violations
COLUMBUS, OHIO — The NCAA has sent questions to Ohio State regarding three Buckeyes football players suspended for accepting $200 for attending a charity event, and the university has responded with some answers.
Cornerback Travis Howard, safety Corey “Pittsburgh” Brown and running back Jordan Hall have sat out the first two games after they admitted breaking NCAA rules by accepting cash for going to a charity event in Cleveland earlier this year - after several other teammates were suspended for accepting improper benefits from a tattoo-parlor owner.
