NPB Spring Training in Arizona for 2016

NPB Spring Training in Arizona for 2016

by Meg Minard - May 03, 2015 1:15 PM EDT

The Japan Times announced the Nippon Ham Fighters of the Japanese baseball league (known as the NPB - Nippon Professional Baseball) will be playing some of their spring training games at the Peoria Sports Complex during the 2016 early season. A number of Asian teams start their spring training in the United States already, so this is not new. The last time the Fighters played spring training overseas was in 1987.


The Kentucky Derby and the Mint Julep

The Kentucky Derby and the Mint Julep

by Gregory Priebe - May 02, 2015 10:46 AM EDT

On May 2nd, fans will pack Churchill Downs to celebrate "The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports" - the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby. Held every consecutive year since 1875 at Churchill Downs, this one and a quarter mile race (also known as "The Run for the Roses") draws larger crowds than any of the others stakes races. For nearly a century, the Mint Julep has been the official beverage of both Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby. The actual bourbon of choice fluctuates over time (this year the honor goes to Old Forester) as does the overall quality of the actual drink served at the track, but all-told over 100,000 juleps are served to the crowds during the annual Derby weekend. The butcher's bill for this feat is around 10,000 bottles of bourbon and over 60,000 pounds of ice.
