Throughout the history of sports, there have been moments that became bizarre events, some funny, some odd, some historical. What follows are some of the most interesting, tragic, bizarre, and just downright humorous instances that took place in one sporting event or another.

We begin this trek down memory lane with a story that might be the most unbelievable of all. If you have never heard the name Frank Hayes before, you are about to learn the way his life ended in a most incredible tragic fashion. Frank Hayes participated in a sport that certainly has a limited audience. Horse Racing. Hayes trained horses and worked as a stablemate. In 1923, Hayes was 22 years old by some accounts, but others have him perishing at the age of 35. What happened to Hayes is just unthinkable. In 1923 he was asked to get in the saddle for a steeplechase at Belmont Park in New York. Hayes was on the back of the horse named “Sweet Kiss” and the odds were 20 to 1 that his horse would win the race.

This race would be Frank Hayes first and last. You see horse jockeys are small in weight with limits and Hayes needed to cut his weight from 142 pounds down to 130. He shed the weight in a single day. He did this by jogging until he got to the desired weight. He also failed to drink any water in this process and by the time he saddled up, he appeared weak and exhausted. Whether you believe it or not, a jockey riding a horse can be taxing because of the need to use arms and legs to get the horse moving to the speed necessary to win a race. It has been said a jockey can get their heart rates up to a beat of 180 times a minute. Once the race began, Hayes never got to finish. Not alive anyway. At one point in the race, he suffered a fatal heart attack, but even being dead, he remained on the horse and Sweet Kiss won the race. When officials went to congratulate hm they discovered he had died during the race. Thus, Hayes became the only horse jockey in history to die during a race and yet win the race. His horse Sweet Kiss never raced again.

For baseball fans, many might remember Jim Abbot from a few years back. A remarkably successful pitcher in Major League Baseball who was born without his right hand. Still, he was able to have a distinguished career in baseball learning how to switch his glove when fielding and how to hold his bat when at the place. Now go back to 1945 and there was another major league baseball player who unlike Abbott did not find as much success in Major League Baseball but still made it there albeit for only one season. His name was Pete Gray, and his physical limitations were a bit more extreme than Abbott. Gray was born with all his limbs intact but in 1923 while on his farm, and the accident severely damaged his right arm and it had to be amputated above the elbow.

Gray’s love for baseball endured and he had a successful minor league career after teaching himself how to field and hit despite the loss of his arm. In 1942 while playing for the Trois-Rivieres Rendards in the Canadian American League a “C” level league, Gray played in 42 games and batted .381. The St. Louis Browns in the American League signed him to a contract in 1945 and he lasted just one season, but the fact is, he made it to the majors. That year he finished with 77 games played but hit just .218. Of his 51 hits, two were triples and six were doubles.

Gray had a relatively long life passing away at the age of 87 in 2002 and his resting place is at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Hanover Township, Pennsylvania. Gray was a native of Nanticoke in Pennsylvania born March 6, 1915.A movie was made about him in 1986 called “A Winner Never Quits” and it starred Keith Carradine and Mare Winningham. There is also a biographical book titled “One Armed Wonder: Pete Gray, Wartime Baseball” as well as American Dream by William C. Kashatus.

As for bizarre moments in sports, there may not be a more outrageous moment ever than what took place in a heavyweight boxing championship between Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield. The fight was rematch after Holyfield had won the WBA title from Tyson in late 1996 and this bout took place on June 28, 1997. The fight took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Paradise, Nevada. Entering the fight Holyfield’s record stood at 33-3 with 24 knockouts and Tyson was there with 45-2 mark and 39 KOs. Both weighed in at the same amount (218) and Holyfield was defending his WBA title. He was also Ring Magazine’s 9th ranked fighter. Holyfield had also previously won the light heavyweight championship.

As the fight began, Holyfield began to dominate Tyson. During the second round some incidental head butting occurred by Holyfield. One of those headbutts caused a cut on Tyson and in the third round, after taking a heavy shot Tyson found himself in a clinch by the defending champion and in the clinch, Tyson leaned in and bit Holyfield on his right ear. Agonizing in pain, referee Mills Lane stopped the fight Marc Ratner, the chairman of Nevada’s athletic commission ordered Tyson to be disqualified but Lane allowed it to continue.

A few moments later Tyson did it again, but this time bit the other ear, tearing away some of Holyfield’s left ear. At that point Tyson was officially disqualified and went into a rage indicating he bit Holyfield in retaliation for the head butt. Tyson, in biting Holyfield’s ear, spit the piece of skin to the canvas. Interestingly enough, these two men are friends to this day.

When you think of funny moments in sports, perhaps one of the most humorous videos you will ever see is when Mark Sanchez had his now infamous “Butt Fumble.” But when it comes to embarrassment, two plays took place on both the collegiate and professional level that mirror each other. It is rare that a football player picks up a fumble and tries to score but ends up running in the wrong direction. Well, that has happened twice where it became a major story, one on the amateur level and the other in the NFL.

In college, the year was 1929 and the annual Rose Bowl was being played between the University of California (Berkeley) and Georgia Tech. The date was New Year’s Day, and one Roy Riegels playing for California was on defense in the position of what is now known as a nose tackle. Riegels also played center on offense. But facing the Yellow Jacket’s offense, Tech’s Jack “Stumpy” Thomas on his own 30-yard line when he fumbled the ball. Riegels picked up the loose ball and began to run towards what he thought was the Yellow Jackets’ end zone but instead was heading for his own end zone. Riegels ran 69 yards in what would have been a safety had he reached the end zone, but his teammate Benny Lom caught up to him all the way screaming at him to stop. Obviously Riegels did not hear him.

Lom and his teammates tackled their own man at the three-yard line as they also tried to turn him around. But Riegels went down to the turf. Lom would end up punting the ball as decided by his coach because California did not want to risk running plays so deep in their own territory. However. Lom’s punt was blocked, and Georgia Tech turned it into a safety giving their team a 2-0 lead. Forever more, Riegels became known as “Wrong Way Roy.” In his own words he explained the play:

“I was running toward the sidelines when I picked up the ball. I started to turn to my left toward Tech’s goal. Somebody shoved me and I bounded right off into a tackler. I’m pivoting to get away from him, I completely lost my bearings.”

VIDEO: Roy Riegels’ Wrong Way Run in the Rose Bowl

Move ahead 35 years to the National Football League and the Minnesota Vikings were playing the San Francisco 439ers on October 25, 1964. On defense for the Vikings was the great Jim Marshall. Just like the Rose Bowl game 35 years earlier Marshall like Riegels picked up a fumble and began to run the wrong way. The difference this time is that Marshall made it to his own end zone which of course became a safety. Marshall threw the ball up thinking he had just scored a defensive touchdown. He redeemed himself later in the game when he forced a fumble which his teammate Carl Eller returned for a score which turned out to be the deciding factor in Minnesota’s 27-22 victory. Months later, Marshall was sent a letter from none other than Roy Riegels who said in the later, “Welcome to the club.”

VIDEO: Touchdown Fail. Guy Runs the Wrong Way

Back to boxing and in one of the most famous sports paintings in history is a representation of the boxing heavyweight title fight between Luis Firpo and defending champion Jack Dempsey. Dempsey is one of the greatest champions of all time and is knowns as “The Manassa Mauler.”

Firpo, the challenger had the nickname “El Toro Salvaje de las Pampas (The Wild Bull of Pampas) hailing from Junin, Buenos Aires. At the time of the fight Dempsey’s record was 61-4-9 and Firip 25-2. The fight took place on September 14, 1924, takin place at the old Polo Grounds in New York City. In the first round alone, Firpo was obviously in over his head suffering knockdowns seven times. But Firpo kept getting up and was able to get Dempsey up against the ropes throwing combinations that knocked Dempsey out of the ring. With a 10-count going on, the champion with assistant from others made it back into the squared circle. Strangely enough the referees count did not start right away, and Dempsey was outside the ropes for 17 seconds. Firpo continued his onslaught when the fight continued landing 13 straight punches. The round ended and Dempsey had decided enough was enough and knocked Firpo out in the second round was the fright went down as the Ring Magazine Fight of the Year for 1923.

While we began this article with the death of a jockey, in Major League Baseball throughout its long history there has been just one single incident of a player dying on the field of play. That unfortunate soul was Ray Chapman. The date was August 16, 1920, and Chapman was playing for the Cleveland Indians. He made his debut with the team almost to the day this incident took place on August 20, 1912. On that day in 1920 the Indians were facing the New York Yankees and Carl Mays was on the mound for the pinstripes.

Carl Mays had a submarine type of motion to his pitches and when he faced Chapman, the game was in its latter stages and in this era, tampering with baseballs was common. This type of activity often made the ball less visible and using his sidearm delivery Mays threw a pitch that came inside, and Chapman just stood at the plate as the ball crashed into his skull. Witnesses say the sound of him being hit was so loud that even Mays thought the ball had hit his bat and in fact the ball rolled back to Mays who fielded it and made a throw to first base.

Laying at home plate, Ray Chapman was bleeding from his left ear and the home plate umpire Tommy Connolly yelled for a doctor. The great Tris Speaker was in the on-deck circle and rushed to Chapman’s side. The batter did manage to get to his feet and tried to walk but his knees buckled, and he fell back down. He did manage to speak and said “I’m all right. Tell Mays not to worry. Ring …Katie’s ring.” Katie was his wife who was also pregnant at the time. He then fell again unconscious. After arriving at St. Lawrence Hospital, he died at 4:40 am because of brain damage. His wife Katie fainted upon hearing the news. Because of his death, his teammates wore black armbands the remainder of the season. Ironically, the Indians won the World Series that year.

The final two stories come from Major League Baseball. Bill Veeck who was once a very colorful and innovate owner of the Chicago White Sox and St. Louis Browns would often pull pranks in the game to make it more interesting. One event stands out much more than anything he did before. On August 19, 1951, Veeck obviously thought it would be funny to sign a dwarf to his roster and put him up to bat in a live game. In came Eddie Gaedel, all 3 feet 7 inches tall and weighing just 90 pounds. On the mound for the Detroit Tigers was Bob Cain and his battery mate was Bob Swift who had to go to his knees to catch the incoming pitches given Gaedel’s height. Cain could be seen laughing hysterically probably because getting a ball inside the small batter’s strike zone would be impossible.

Wearing jersey number 1/8, Gaedel was instructed to just stand there and take pitches. Naturally, he walked on four straight balls and trotted down to first base where he was replaced by a pinch runner. That was the end of his career in baseball and tragically, Gaedel died on June 18, 1961, at the age of 36 after being mugged and beaten and then suffering a heart attack. Strangely enough, his death came 10 days and 10 years to the date of his MLB debut.

Finally, we have an absolute oddity that will probably never happen again. The “Big Unit” Randy Johnson was on the staff of the Arizona Cardinals on March 24, 2001 when in spring training his team was playing the San Francisco Giants and In the seventh inning as Johnson was getting ready to throw another pitch, and his best pitch was the fastball which often traveled to home plate better than 100 miles-per-hour. Unfortunately, on this one pitch a morning dove crossed in front of the ball and was in direct line of the pitch as the ball hit the bird full force killing him instantly.

The Giants’ Jeff Kent picked up the dead bird and gave a big smile. Johnson who threw the pitch did not find any humor in it. Said Johnson, “I didn’t think it was all that funny, it was “a blur.”

So, there you have it, some moments in sports that most likely never happen again. But they are true and in the books as history.

آس 90 : Report: Matt Painter says Canada’s Zach Edey won’t return to Purdue next season

Report: Matt Painter says Canada’s Zach Edey won’t return to Purdue next season

Purdue head coach Matt Painter told College Hoops Today’s Jon Rothstein that this will be Canadian centre Zach Edey’s final season of college basketball.

The Toronto native’s freshman season was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which would allow him to play one more year at Purdue if he chose that route.

After winning the Naismith National Player of the Year in 2022-23, Edey is favoured to repeat in 2023-24. He would become just the third player to ever win the award multiple times, joining Bill Walton and Ralph Sampson.

The seven-foot-four 21-year-old is averaging 23.7 points and 11.8 rebounds per game on 62.7 per cent shooting in 28 games this season.

Over his four seasons at Purdue, Edey has averaged 17.3 points and 9.3 rebounds per game.

Purdue currently holds a 23-3 record and is ranked No. 3 in NCAA Men’s Division 1 Basketball.

Despite claiming the Big 10 title in 2023 — where Edey was named MVP of the tournament — Purdue had an unceremonious exit from the NCAA tournament, becoming just the second No. 1 seed to lose to a 16 seed.

Farleigh Dickinson shocked the Boilermakers with a 63-58 upset.

Edey entered the NBA Draft in 2023, but chose to return to Purdue on his final day to make a decision.

He is ranked 13th on ESPN’s list of best prospects for the 2024 NBA Draft.

آس 90 : 4 Key Defensive Free Agents Ravens Must Prioritize Signing

4 Key Defensive Free Agents Ravens Must Prioritize Signing

سایت ace90
سایت آس نود
سایت آس90

Although former Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald was hired as the new head coach of the Seattle Seahawks, the organization will have to figure out which key free agents they need to prioritize. The Ravens had one of the top defensive units in the NFL as they were a huge reason why they were one victory away from a Super Bowl berth. The Ravens defense held opposing quarterbacks to the 5th lowest completion percentage, were tied for 1st in yards per attempt by opposing quarterbacks and ranked 2nd in the NFL in touchdown passes allowed. What was most impressive about the Ravens vaunted defense was that they allowed the fewest points per game at 16.5 and they also led the NFL in sacks with 60 total. With Macdonald taking the Seahawks job, there exists a strong possibility that some of the Ravens free agents could follow him to Seattle. But there also exists the possibility that some of these players will remain in Baltimore as inside linebackers coach Zach Orr was promoted as the Ravens new defensive coordinator. Since the hiring was done in house, there isn’t expected to be much change to the defensive scheme and Orr’s familiarity with the players strengths should help keep at least some of them in a Ravens jersey. As we approach the NFL’s free agency period in the coming weeks, let’s take a look at some of the players the Ravens should bring back.

Patrick Queen

Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta must do everything in his power to keep the duo of Patrick Queen and Roquan Smith together. This was one of the best linebacker pairings in the league and both played huge roles as leaders. Smith led the team in total tackles with 158 and Queen was second on the team with 133. As the saying goes, iron sharpens iron and these 2 dynamic linebackers just made each other better. Queen brings an element of speed from his linebacker position and he also packs a punch for the Ravens pass rush. Being able to provide a frequent pass rush from the 2nd level of the defense is what made the Ravens unique and Queen was a major reason why. He has always shown flashes of potential since arriving in Baltimore but he played at another level last season as he developed consistency. His sideline to sideline pursuit of ball carriers was on an elite level and it appeared that Queen had a 6th sense about where a play was going. Signing Queen long term would solidify their linebacker corps for the next couple of seasons.

Justin Madubuike

It’s been one heck of a breakout season for Justin Madubuike. He led all NFL defensive linemen with 13 sacks, made his 1st Pro Bowl and was named to the NFL’s All-Pro 2nd Team. Madibuke also made history as he tied the NFL record with at least a half sack in 11 consecutive games. The interior pass rush is so important  in the NFL as it gives defenses schematical advantages if they can constantly bring pressure from the inside. Madibuke has drawn comparisons to future Hall of famer Aaron Donald and the Ravens have to prioritize getting him signed long term as he should be considered a foundational piece on the Ravens interior defensive line because pass rushing defensive tackles who can collapse the pocket are often difficult to find. He has been a menace for opposing offensive linemen and doesn’t mind doing the dirty work. Madibuke is fast, strong and plays with violent intentions and embodies what it means to be a Raven. He is so strong that he tosses offensive linemen like toys and if he adds more pass rush moves to his arsenal, he will be even more effective. Madibuke has a high motor and never gives up on plays. Explosiveness is a huge part of his game and that combined with added push moves could lead to another terrific season but hopefully it will be as a member of the Ravens.

Geno Stone

If any player on the Ravens defense earned and deserves a new contract it’s free safety Geno Stone. When the Ravens drafted Stone in the 7th round of the 2020 NFL Draft, the knock on him coming out of the University of Iowa was that he lacked ideal height for the position and that he also lacked top end speed. His positives was his high football IQ, being a strong downhill tackler and having a nose for the football. Stone is the perfect example of a player taking full advantage of an opportunity. He didn’t become a starter until Week 6 in his 3rd season when fellow teammate Marcus Williams went on injured reserve and hasn’t looked back since. Stone finished with 7 interceptions which was good for 2nd in the NFL. The main thing that makes this Ravens defense special are that their defensive back ups  at every position are used to playing as they have developed a true “next man up” mentality. They are not players who sit at the end of the bench and never expect to play. Stone benefitted from this as he just continued to develop and improve. A lot of defensive backs have instincts but can’t catch. Stone can do both as he seems to be a magnet to the football always being in the right position to make the big play. He understands that the Ravens can get to the quarterback quickly and keep him under duress and Stone realized that equals interception opportunities and just capitalized on what was an outstanding season. Stone is also adept at coming downhill and helping out with stopping the rushing attack. He is nimble for a safety but can be just as violent as a linebacker. He may be the odd man out since the Ravens already have a starter with Williams. Other teams may pursue Stone with lucrative deals that could lure him away. But there still exists a glimmer of hope that Stone could return depending on the volatility of the market. If all else fails, Stone could return to the Ravens on a one year, team friendly deal as a backup safety or nickel back role.

Jadeveon Clowney

Jadeveon Clowney has always been known as a force and opposing coaches are forced to diversify their game plan just to keep him under wraps. That’s the kind of effect Clowney has and the Ravens must decide whether bringing him back for another season is a priority or will they decide to go in another direction? Clowney normally doesn’t get a lot of sacks but this past season he tied his career high sack total with 9 and a half. Even though he is constantly double teamed, he can still get pressure on the quarterback and running backs have no chance if the play is run on the side of the field he is occupying. With the amount of talented players playing alongside Clowney in Baltimore, it only makes him better because opposing teams have to account for the other talent surrounding him and can’t just focus on solely stopping him. Playing on a team friendly, one year $2.5 million contract, it’s a real possibility Clowney returns for another run with this defense. By Clowney not trying to break the bank by commanding an absurd amount of money, it helps the Ravens front office by allowing them to focus on other key free agents.

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - FEBRUARY 05: A general view of the Vince Lombardi Trophy during Super Bowl LVIII Opening Night at Allegiant Stadium on February 05, 2024 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
(Photo by Candice Ward/Getty Images)


San Francisco 49ers star Charvarius Ward already knows what it feels like to reach this stage.

The veteran cornerback already played in a Super Bowl when he was with the Kansas City Chiefs.

As a matter of fact, this will be the third time in his career he plays in one of those games, as he’s already won and lost a Super Bowl before.

Notably, Ward was on the winning squad when the Chiefs beat his current team four years ago.

However, when asked about his previous experience, he threw a little shade at his former organization, claiming that it’s much better to reach this stage with the Niners than it was with the Chiefs (via 95.7 The Game).

“It’s better over here.  [In] every way,” Ward said.

Truth be told, Ward has fared better since taking his talents to the Bay area as a free agent.

He signed a three-year deal in 2022, and he made an immediate impact.

He’s coming off logging 72 total tackles and a career-best five interceptions this season, including his first career touchdown with on a pick-six.

He played under Andy Reid for four years after signing with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of Middle Tennessee State.

Needless to say, he’s pretty familiar with Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs’ offense, and he’ll look to show his former team what they missed when they let him walk away.

This will be one of the biggest storylines of the ultimate game, and it’ll be interesting to see who gets the last laugh this time.

Report: Raiders hiring Kliff Kingsbury as offensive coordinator

سایت ace90

سایت آس90

HENDERSON, Nev. — The Las Vegas Raiders are hiring former Arizona Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury to be their offensive coordinator, a person informed of the decision told The Associated Press on Thursday night.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal hasn’t been finalized.

This is the first major hire for new Raiders coach Antonio Pierce, who had the interim tag removed Jan. 19. Kingsbury will be in charge of trying to turn around a Las Vegas offense that was 27th this season yards per game (289.5) and 23rd in scoring (19.5-point average).

The Raiders also will have a decision to make at quarterback. Rookie Aidan O’Connell went 5-4 after being handed the job, but questions remain whether he has the ability to lead the Raiders into and deep in the playoffs.

“There hasn’t been a lot of years I’ve been the unquestioned starter going in, so I’m used to competing,” O’Connell said last week.

The Raiders pick 13th in this year’s quarterback-deep draft, but the top names likely will be gone by the time Las Vegas’ spot comes up.

Kingsbury, 44, spent this past season at USC as an offensive analyst working with quarterback Caleb Williams, who many project will be drafted first overall. Before that, Kingsbury went 28-37-1 over four seasons as the Cardinals’ coach.

Arizona went 11-6 in 2021 and made the playoffs, but the Cardinals suffered several major injuries the following season and finished 4-13, resulting in Kingsbury’s dismissal. The firing came just 10 months after the Cardinals signed him to a contract extension.

In addition to Kingsbury, the Raiders interviewed former Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Luke Getsy, Cincinnati Bengals quarterbacks coach Dan Pitcher, Pittsburgh Steelers QB coach Mike Sullivan and ex-Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt.
