FILE - In this July 23, 2016, file photo, Valentina Shevchenko, right, of Kyrgyzstan, punches Holly Holm during a women's bantamweight mixed martial arts bout in Chicago. Holly Holm is already the answer to a trivia question as the first fighter to dominate and defeat Ronda Rousey. Holm's championship reign lasted only four months, and another loss soon followed that left Holm not as the heir apparent to Rousey in the women's division, but rather on the cusp of being labeled an MMA version of a one-hit wonder like Buster Douglas.

FILE - In this Oct. 10, 2016, file photo, Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Josh Tomlin delivers against the Boston Red Sox during the first inning in Game 3 of baseball's American League Division Series in Boston. The stolen base has been stolen from much of baseball, an afterthought when spring training starts next week. Sabermetrics have played a huge role in the steal's decline. When a hitter steps into a batter's box and a runner takes a lead, managers and coaches know the pitcher's delivery time to home plate and the catcher's pop time _ the second-plus lag between the ball hitting the mitt and it touching the middle infielder's glove.
