When Lindsay Taylor entered the game in the seventh inning against Yale last weekend, she threw her first in-game pitch in more than a year.After partially tearing the labrum in her right arm, Taylor underwent surgery in June during which her bicep was folded over the labrum to tighten her shoulder.“She’s overcome a lot of adversity,” Syracuse pitching coach Mike Bosch said.Three days after closing out Yale, Taylor started and pitched two innings against Hartford, marking the first game this season that neither Jocelyn Cater nor Sydney O’Hara started. When Lindsey Larkin pitched the final five innings, it became the first game that neither Cater nor O’Hara pitched at all.Taylor’s return gives Syracuse (12-14, 0-3 Atlantic Coast) more flexibility while allowing its two aces to rest. Cater and O’Hara have combined to log nearly 90 percent of SU’s innings. While still on a pitch count, Syracuse expects Taylor to rack up more innings this weekend when it faces ACC foe Boston College (14-13, 0-6) in a Saturday doubleheader and Sunday matchup in Plymouth, Massachusetts.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I don’t think she’s quite at the point where she can throw seven innings for us,” Bosch said, “but anything she can give us is greatly appreciated right now because a pitching staff is only as good as every little piece on it.”After operating almost entirely with a two-pitcher rotation for the first five weeks of the season, Cater said she finally feels like SU has a pitching staff.As Taylor continues to work her way back from injury, the staff will only grow stronger. This weekend, Taylor will likely pitch up to three innings over the two days, head coach Leigh Ross said.“(Taylor) just gives us more depth all around and different looks, that’s the key,” Ross said. “Lindsay’s got a great change-up so it’s not necessarily giving someone a break. It’s what’s going to work right now, what’s going to be effective against this team, these hitters.”Taylor should work particularly well as a change of pace with Cater who throws very hard, Ross said. A tentative plan for this weekend is to have Taylor pitch an inning or two in the middle of a Cater game to throw Boston College hitters off balance, which Ross said “stinks” for BC.Cater and O’Hara both hit when they’re not on the mound, so before Taylor offered another starting option, they both played nearly every game.“It takes a little pressure off me and Sydney,” Cater said. “Every day at practice it impresses me more and more that she’s throwing more and it gets me excited.”To track her recovery, Taylor’s coaches studied the speed of her pitches during Wednesday’s practice to ensure she stays consistent. As long as Taylor’s speed and technique are steady, her workload can continue to increase, Bosch said.“I think I’m doing well with my progression,” Taylor said. “I think I’m right where I should be.”She is concerned about how her arm will react to cold weather, though. Her first two games were in Florida and all of her practices in Syracuse have been indoors, but the team will be outside this weekend.Like the rest of her rehab, Taylor will see how it goes and base her innings off how she feels.“At some point of her career in the last six months, eight months, didn’t really know if she’d even be back on the mound,” Bosch said. “To see her back on the mound, awesome.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 20, 2015 at 7:49 pm
The USC Sports Business Institute hosted Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred on Wednesday for a discussion about the key accomplishments of and challenges for the MLB to date, while also providing insight into the direction of America’s pastime in the years to come. The event, which took place at L.A. Live was part of the institute’s ongoing Commissioners’ Series and was moderated by David Carter, executive director of the Sports Business Institute and an associate professor in the Marshall School of Business.Manfred has served in his capacity for a little over a year after stepping into the role of the MLB’s 10th Commissioner on January 15, 2015. He was elected by a unanimous vote of the 30 Major League clubs in August 2014. Prior to succeeding long-time Commissioner Bud Selig, Manfred worked as the league’s Chief Operating Officer, where he oversaw labor relations, baseball operations and development, and finance, among other principal areas. “I think having been with the league for 20 years, he knows his way around the domestic issues and the opportunities internationally,” Carter said.Manfred began by elaborating on his transition to becoming the league’s top executive and how heads of various other major domestic leagues aided him in that process.“No one was more helpful to me in the transition process than [NBA Commissioner] Adam Silver,” Manfred said. He said that the commissioners talk about areas of mutual interest on a frequent basis, notably National Hockey League Commissioner Gary Bettman, due to the business relationship that the two leagues have. Last August, MLB Advanced Media purchased the rights to all of the NHL’s digital platforms in a groundbreaking partnership that was worth approximately $600 million over a six-year period. A former lawyer, the 57-year old New York native spoke at length about how the league is trying to appeal to a younger demographic. With over 75 million tickets being sold every year, he praised the efforts of the 30 major league clubs to attract a younger audience by tailoring the overall ballpark experience to their tastes. “We do have a younger fan base, but I think the issue is how we deliver our product in a way that is acceptable to them in consuming the product,” Manfred said. Manfred believes that the “trip” with younger people is technology and the MLB, along with its Advanced Media arm, is hoping to ensure that baseball is available on platforms that the younger audiences will generally go to as a primary source of information. He added that the league would be rolling out a new partnership with Snapchat this upcoming season. The commissioner also touched on an issue close to home, in which many Los Angeles Dodgers fans are still blacked out from watching Dodgers games, due to the inability for Time Warner Cable to come to a mutual agreement with many of the other local distributors. Manfred said that the league has talked to the parties involved to try to encourage them to achieve a resolution, but also that he doesn’t have much leverage in those negotiations. “The club doesn’t really have a seat at that table and we’re at least one removed from the club,” Manfred said. A major focus this year for the league, according to Manfred, is labor relations. He briefly touched on the their upcoming negotiations with the MLB Players Association for a new collective bargaining agreement when the current one expires on Dec. 1. Manfred guided the renewals of the agreement in 2002, 2006 and 2011. The 2002 labor pact was the first in over 30 years that was settled without incurring a work stoppage. “We’ve had 20 years of labor peace and I have confidence that we will be able to come to an agreement,” Manfred said. Other topics Manfred tackled later in the talk included the expanding role of daily fantasy baseball, which he said isn’t going anywhere. In addition, he touched on the subject of diversity and how the MLB is attempting to branch out to other international markets like China, Mexico and Cuba. “It’s important that our product be diverse,” Manfred said. “Compared to any other major professional sport in North America , we are by far the most diverse sport.” Overall, the conversation was well received by the 300 or so professionals, alumni and students at the event.“Our goal is to make sure we have a really solid, topical discussion, maybe not going really deep on any one topic, but dotting the landscape on things the audience would be interested in hearing about,” Carter said. USC students were also impressed with Manfred’s ability to delve into so many different themes, such as diversity, youth participation and international development. “It was clear that Commissioner Manfred has had a tremendous impact on the game of baseball already and I’m excited to see how the league grows in the future with him at the helm,” junior business administration major Schuyler Corbin said.Commissioner Manfred’s visit marks the SBI’s ninth Commissioners’ Series event, which is dedicated to hosting the leaders of America’s premier sports leagues and organizations.“It speaks volume to the strength of the Marshall School and USC when a commissioner will come out on his own dime, on his own time and spend some time with us,” Carter said.
Facebook Twitter Google+ Corinne Ozanne knows where to find the largest number on Syracuse’s stat sheet, no matter which one of her four years at SU she’s talking about.“It wasn’t hits. It wasn’t RBI’s. It wasn’t batting average,” Ozanne said.“It was strikeouts.”In Ozanne’s freshman year, the Orange struck out 400 times — the highest total since she’s been here This year, SU has already struck out 17 more times than its opponents in its first 17 games of 2016.As the Orange (8-9) prepares to face its first Atlantic Coast Conference foe in North Carolina (10-10) after a season in which SU earned its worst conference record (4-13) in Syracuse history, SU head coach Mike Bosch says that fixing his team’s strikeout problem may lead to an overall improvement in ACC play.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We take care of that, we can create things offensively,” Bosch said. “I think we got better at it last weekend. I think we have a better idea of the strike zone as it is for each batter.”Syracuse struck out 78 times in its first 13 games this season with two notable outliers. The Orange struck out 13 times in its season-opening win against Long Beach State and 10 times in a loss against Purdue.SU improved last weekend by only striking out 15 times in four games, but that may change with ACC play due to increased competition, according to Bosch.“It’s just a well-balanced, top-to-bottom conference,” Bosch said. “Obviously, since we had seven teams get into the NCAA tournament last year, the NCAA verifies that.”There are signs that SU’s strikeout total may decline in 2016. Syracuse lost one of its leaders in strikeouts, Mary Dombrowski, to graduation. Danielle Chitkowski, who was second on the Orange with 45 strikeouts in 2015, has only struck out seven times this season.Syracuse assistant coach Alisa Goler says she discusses strikeouts with her team every day. But due to the team’s defensive versatility and her strong pitching core, the strikeout total sometimes takes a backseat.“If we’re going to compete and strike out like that,” Goler said, “we’re going to compete and we’re going to strike out. What matters to me is that we’re taking advantage of people in scoring position.”But on multiple occasions, SU has left runners in scoring position due to strikeouts. In SU’s extra-innings victory against Bryant, Hannah Dossett struck out in two consecutive at-bats that left five total runners on base. In a 5-2 loss to California State Northridge on Saturday, Andrea Bombace’s strikeout to end the sixth inning left Sydney O’Hara and Aliyah Wade on first and second base, respectively.Ozanne admits it’s hard to limit strikeouts, especially in a sport where failure is acceptable 70 percent of the time.“It’s all a mind game,” Ozanne said. “I hope the strikeout number goes down, but it’s going to be a big factor.” Comments Published on March 9, 2016 at 10:38 pm Contact Chris: email@example.com
Published on November 11, 2017 at 9:55 pm Syracuse (4-6, 2-5 Atlantic Coast) fell to Wake Forest (6-3, 3-3), 64-43, at home Saturday. WFU quarterback John Wolford accounted for six touchdowns and almost 500 yards of total offense. With the loss, Syracuse will likely need to win its final two games to become automatically bowl eligible. Standing the way is a trip to Louisville, Kentucky, to face reigning Heisman winner Lamar Jackson. Then, in the final week of the season, Syracuse hosts Boston College two days after Thanksgiving.
