From the first day Jack Flaherty walked on the Harvard-Westlake High campus as a freshman two years ago, he was projected to be a baseball standout. He had the size, the work ethic and the cool, calm demeanor that signified star quality in his future....

Diane Long will sit in an Edward Jones Dome luxury box Sunday, binoculars lifted to her eyes, her focus trained on the line of scrimmage. She won't be following the football much when the St. Louis Rams play host to the Chicago Bears. For four quarters,...

The Dodgers play very good baseball. Wednesday, they also did some pretty nifty dance steps.

On a day when Ricky Nolasco pitched his second straight gem, the Dodgers beat the Cubs, 4-0, Hanley Ramirez and Andre Ethier...
