By Stefano Romagnoli - Jun 28, 2016 8:49 AM EDT

On April 24, 2016 the Olympic stadium in Turin changed its name. It is now known as the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino.

Ballpark Improvements for Canberra and Perth

By Lloyd Rothwell - Jun 26, 2016 8:45 AM EDT

State and federal governments in Australia will contribute more than $10m to upgrade Australian Baseball League (ABL) ballparks in Canberra and Perth.

The ACT Government recently announced $4.5m will be spent on improving Narrabundah Ballpark, home of the Canberra Cavalry. While the playing surface has often been lauded at The Fort, the park is currently lacking the infrastructure for fans and players to attract major games. Designs are yet to be finalised, but are understood to include expanding the main grandstand on either side, and including a level of seating below ground level behind home plate.

Bringing Back a Classic Ballpark

By Dave Cottenie - Jun 18, 2016 10:19 PM EDT

We are all well aware of the magic and majesty of those classic stadiums. Just saying their names brings an air of mystery akin to entering the movie Field of Dreams. Lambeau Field. Madison Square Garden. Wrigley Field. Fenway Park. Taking in a game at one of these stadia for many is the transition from childhood to adulthood. They are what bucket lists all around the world are made of. The mystery does not have to stop with those in the major leagues either. College sports have their Assembly Halls, Cameron Indoor Stadiums, Palestras, and Michigan Stadiums. There are also a ton of history dripping stadia in minor sports as well. From the Peterborough Memorial Centre to Labatt Memorial Park. From the OnCenter to Nat Bailey Stadium.

Our lifetimes have also seen the tragedies of Tiger Stadium, Rosenblatt Stadium and Greer Stadium. Stadiums that have outlived their useful lives and go on to be torn down or worse, abandoned and left to the elements. Watching the abandonment of iconic stadiums is like shaving one's head by plucking one hair at a time.

Festivities in United States Under Way as Copa América Turns 100

By Andrew Maurins - Jun 06, 2016 9:45 AM EDT

Rather than let its hundredth anniversary slow it down, the Copa América is breaking with tradition in a big way: a vacation to the States.

The 45th edition of the prestigious soccer tournament - normally played in a South American country every one to four years - is being hosted by the United States for the first time ever this month. Temporarily rechristened as the Copa América Centenario, it's the biggest soccer tournament held on American soil since the 1994 World Cup. The celebration kicked off at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara on June 3rd, as Colombia beat the U.S. 2-0 in front of an announced crowd of 67,439.

By Marc Viquez - Jun 04, 2016 6:18 PM EDT

The proposed sale and relocation of the Batavia Muckdogs to Waldorf, Maryland, has been quelled for the time being. However, many won't be surprised if Batavia's Dwyer Stadium will be without a minor league baseball franchise within a few years.
