Royals’ Ventura killed in car crash in Dominican Republic


January 22nd, 2017 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura, whose electric arm helped his team win the 2015 World Series title, was killed in a car crash in his native Dominican Republic early Sunday. Royals vice president Mike Swanson confirmed Ventura’s death. He was 25.

With the fitting nickname of “Ace,” Ventura burst onto the baseball scene with a 100 mph fastball and an explosive attitude to match. He was a fierce competitor who was always willing to challenge hitters inside, then deal with the ramifications when they decided to charge the mound.

Ventura went 14-10 with a 3.20 ERA in 2014, his first full season in the big leagues, and helped the long-downtrodden Royals reach the World Series for the first time since 1985. He proceeded to dominate San Francisco in both of his starts, though the Royals would ultimately lose in seven games.

He followed by helping Kansas City win the championship the next year.

January 22nd, 2017 by Ric Hanson

The Des Moines Register, Saturday, announced the route for this year’s RAGBRAI trek. The Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI) will start July 23rd in Orange City and end July 29th in Lansing.

Total mileage for RAGRAI 45 amounts to  411.4, the third-shortest of RAGBRAI’s 45 journeys. It’ll also be the third-flattest of the trips, with a total feet of climb amounting to 13,078 feet. This year’s route is rated the third-easiest RAGBRAI by combination of distance and climb. The ride started in Sioux City back in 2015 with riders dipping their tires in the Missouri River.

January 22nd, 2017 by Ric Hanson

The University of Iowa women’s basketball team trailed Minnesota by seven points in the first half and 36-35 at halftime before going on a tear resulting in an 80-65 victory Saturday in front of 7,191 on Mediacom Court inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

The Hawkeyes enjoyed a 45-29 run in the second half and grabbed the lead for good when sophomore Megan Gustafson converted a conventional three-point play that put Iowa ahead, 43-41, early in the third quarter. Gustafson scored 11 of her game-high 19 points in the third quarter and registered her 10th double-double of the season before the period ended.

Gustafson made 8-of-13 field goals and all three free throws to pace four Hawkeyes in double figures. Senior Ally Disterhoft scored 17 points, freshman Kathleen Doyle had 11 (10 in the first half), and sophomore Tania Davis added 10. Disterhoft entered the game shooting 15.6-percent from distance in Big Ten games, but she made three of Iowa’s eight 3-point field goals Saturday.

The Hawkeyes committed a season-low 11 turnovers.  Iowa returns to action Sunday, Jan. 29th, against No. 3 Maryland (18-1, 6-0).
