Dodgers’ Kiké Hernandez ready to embrace single-position role

first_imgSince he joined the Dodgers, Hernandez has a .990 fielding percentage in 81 games at second base. The franchise leaders at the position (minimum 300 games) are Jackie Robinson and Mark Grudzielanek at .983.“It allows me to show my full potential because I’m just working at one spot,” Hernandez said. “I can just focus on being as good as I can be at only one position instead of trying to get really good at six, seven different spots.“In another way, it gives me a little bit more comfort at the plate hitting, not having to move around and focus on those two parts that much. I’m excited and happy. I’m also going to try to stay here for a few more years.”Roberts said Hernandez’s biggest area of improvement has been his approach against right-handed pitching. Last year 12 of his 21 home runs came against right-handed pitchers. He previously had nine career home runs against right-handers and 19 against lefties.There’s an echo of Turner’s transformation there too; only a dramatic swing change allowed him to become an everyday player. During his first spring training as a third baseman, Turner said he would miss the variety of playing different positions. Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season “Clayton’s always going to poke holes in something,” Roberts said. “Today would probably be the curveball. But for me, the way the ball was coming out, the depth of his slider, threw some changeups – I was very encouraged.”Kershaw will begin the season on the injured list. There is no precise timetable for his return.“We talked about a few-week kind of plan,” Roberts said.ALSOIn addition to Buehler’s start Sunday, the rest of the season-opening rotation has been set: Hyun-Jin Ryu will pitch against the Diamondbacks on Opening Day (Thursday), followed by Ross Stripling (Friday) and Kenta Maeda (Saturday). Julio Urías will start Monday’s series opener against the San Francisco Giants. … Stetson Allie, Dustin May, Kevin Quackenbush, Josh Thole, Paulo Orlando, Daniel Castro and Ezequiel Carrera were officially reassigned to the Dodgers’ minor league camp. There are officially 28 players on the Dodgers’ spring training roster. … Uniformed personnel will wear a patch in memory of Don Newcombe beginning on Opening Day and throughout the 2019 season. … Newcombe, the 1956 MVP who founded the Dodgers’ community relations department and served as an advisor in his retirement, died Feb. 19 at age 92. Hernandez, however, isn’t nostalgic for his super-utility label.“Maybe I’ll miss playing short,” he said, “but that’s about it.”THE SIMSPitching to teammates for the final time this spring, Walker Buehler impressed in a four-inning simulated game at Angel Stadium. Buehler’s upper-90s fastball was typically overpowering, and the right-hander declared himself ready for his regular-season debut Sunday afternoon against Arizona.Buehler had been delayed early in spring by a dead arm. Now, he said, “we’re right to where I would have been last year.”Clayton Kershaw, who threw a two-inning sim game, could not say the same. The left-hander threw all his pitches, but their spin fell short of midseason form.Related Articles How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire ANAHEIM — It’s easy to forget, but in the two seasons before he became a Dodger, Justin Turner did not spend the majority of his innings in the field at any one position. In his first season in Los Angeles, Turner was a backup at first, second and third base. It wasn’t until Don Mattingly declared him the primary starter at third in 2015 that Turner knew which glove to bring to the field without first checking the lineup card.So it is for Kiké Hernandez in 2019. Last year, he appeared at every position except catcher. Now he’ll only need his second baseman’s glove for the foreseeable future. In a professional career that began in 2009, Hernandez said, “I haven’t really had that.”Manager Dave Roberts recently made the switch, declaring Chris Taylor his super-utility fielder. Hernandez’s bat might have won him the job. He sports a .278 batting average, .344 on-base percentage and .500 slugging percentage in spring training (through Sunday) compared to Taylor’s .185/.254/.370.But Hernandez is also the team’s best fielding second baseman, at least in Roberts’ opinion. His potential impact in the field cannot be overlooked as he transitions to the new role.center_img Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start last_img read more

South Africans urged to take a walk

first_img5 October 2015South Africans were reminded to take the first step towards an active lifestyle by walking around their neighbourhoods by Sport and Recreation Minister Fikile Mbalula, who launched World Walking Month and National Recreation Day on 2 October.Thousands of South Africans participated in the annual Big Walk yesterday, a recreational event held by Mbalula’s department. It said the Big Walk was conceived as a result of increased obesity and lifestyle diseases. The main aim of the walk and National Recreation Day was to encourage South Africans to embrace recreation and a healthy lifestyle.The initiative coincides with October Transport Month, an annual national programme that promotes eco-mobility and the use of public transport over private cars.Watch Mbalula speak about the importance of recreational activities:National Recreation Day events took place around the country:Halaala KZN…totally loving what you are up to today in honoring NATIONAL RECREATION DAY #Ichoose2BActive RT https://t.co/OH7rzOadsG— Dep.

Sport & Rec (@SPORTandREC_RSA) Octobe r 2, 2015The Big WalkThe Big Walk was held at the Tshwane Events Centre at Fountains Valley Resort and included various types of races and sports events.The Association for International Sport for All (Tafisa) was behind the walking month, explained the department, which is an affiliate member of the association.Huge growth has been recorded for the walk, which was first held in 2012. That year, 3 800 people took part; this year, there were more than 15 000 participants. It included 5km, 10km and 15km routes through the resort and the Voortrekker Monument.The EcoMobility World Festival“Walking is cool. Cycling is cool. Let us make it possible to stay healthy. If you walk or cycle you can reduce your weight, and reduce the chances of getting diseases,” Transport Minister Dipuo Peters said on 4 October when she officially launched the EcoMobility World Festival Sandton, Johannesburg.The festival, running throughout October, is aimed at encouraging residents to park their cars and make use of public transport, walk or cycle in Sandton, the city’s economic hub. It will mitigate traffic congestion that affects business and economy and address environmental concerns caused by carbon.Peters said South Africa had a national climate change response strategy.“We are committed to sustainable development. We are committed to ensure that we build cities of tomorrow, by making sure that we can move with the new technology. We also want to make sure that this technology will create jobs for our people.”Gauteng Premier David Makhura envisaged the success of the festival, saying he would love to see it being developed into a lifestyle after October ended.He echoed the minister’s call for people to use public transport. “It is cool to use public transport. Public transport promotes social cohesion and it protects our environment,” he said.Watch Makhura explain the effects of the eco-mobility festival:Yeom Tae-Young, the mayor of the Korean city of Suwon, was among the international guests who attended the official opening. His city was the first to host the festival in 2014. He said eco-mobility was good in that it promoted social change and integration.Source: SAnews.gov and South Africa.info reporterlast_img read more

Solar Raises Its Voice in the Job Market

first_imgLate last month the Department of Energy noted that the Weatherization Assistance Program, which was greatly expanded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, had since 2009 increased the energy efficiency of more than 500,000 low-income homes and employed more than 14,000 weatherizers and workers in the energy efficiency supply chain.One of the most high-profile support industries in the energy efficiency realm is, of course, the solar industry. Like the WAP, whose bureaucratic complexities caused it to stumble out of the gate in many states and land in the crosshairs of conservative critics, the solar industry has gained notoriety with the half-billion-dollar failure of Solyndra. At the same time, however, it also is gaining credibility as an employer of some significance and a deployer of technology that can greatly reduce reliance on the grid for electric power.On September 19, the nonprofit Solar Foundation summarized preliminary data from an analysis titled “National Solar Jobs Census 2011: A Review of the U.S. Solar Workforce,” which shows that solar businesses added 6,735 new workers in all 50 states since August 2010, representing a 6.8% annual growth rate. That growth rate, the Solar Foundation points out, contrasts sharply with the nearly flat jobs growth in the overall economy. During the same period, the report adds, the fossil-fuel electric generation workforce shrunk by about 2%.Still an emerging playerOverall, the solar industry workforce is still relatively tiny, having grown from 46,000 in 2009 to about 100,000 today. But as commercial building owners and homeowners look to cut energy costs – and hedge against rising fuel costs – solar power, coupled with design and construction techniques that increase buildings’ energy efficiency, likely will become a bigger player in the economy, even if the U.S. isn’t leading the charge in innovation and manufacturing. Since 2010, the Solar Energy Industries Association notes in a recent report, demand for photovoltaic systems has grown about 70%.Conducted by the Solar Foundation and Green LMI (a division of BW Research Partnership) with technical assistance from Cornell University, the census examines employment throughout the industry, including installation, wholesale trade, manufacturing, utilities and all other fields, and includes growth rates and job numbers for 31 separate occupations. It also examines solar employment at the state level.The full report will be available at Solar Power International ’11, a trade show and conference scheduled for October 17-20 in Dallas.last_img read more

J&K administration amends reservation rule for border dwellers, backwards areas category

first_imgThe Jammu and Kashmir administration has amended reservation rules for border dwellers and backward areas category, officials said here Tuesday. The amendment was carried out through a notification issued late Monday night by the Social Welfare Department, the officials said. They said the department amended the rules for “person claiming reservation on backward area or an area near the Line of Actual Control/International Border Jammu and Kashmir.”“In exercise of the powers conferred by Section 23 of the Jammu and Kashmir Reservation Act 2004 and all other relevant provisions of law in this behalf, the Government of Jammu and Kashmir hereby directs that clause (III) of Rule 21 of the Jammu and Kashmir Reservation Rules, 2005 shall be substituted by the following namely.“A person claiming the benefit on the grounds that he/she belongs to an identified backward area or an area near the Line of Actual Control/International Border, must establish that he/she has resided in the area for a period of not less than 15 years prior to the date of application and is actually residing in the said area,” the Statutory Regulatory Order (SRO) 321 read. It said a person shall not be disentitled from claiming this benefit only on the ground that his or her father or the person on whom he or she is dependent is living in a place which is not identified as backward or area near the Line of Actual Control or IB on account of his employment, business, other professional or vocational reasons and migration from one place to another place within the respective division due to security reasons.last_img read more

(AP Photo/Gerald Herbert)NEW ORLEANS — DeMarcus Cousins came to the bench for the final time as the crowd rose to its feet. He exchanged high fives with Pelicans teammates and fans on the baseline, then motioned to the crowd with his raised right hand to keep the adulation coming.If Cousins, Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday keep playing the way they did against LeBron James’ Cavaliers, there will be plenty more scenes like that.ADVERTISEMENT Cousins had 29 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists, and the Pelicans pulled away for a convincing 123-101 victory over Cleveland on Saturday night.“I enjoy winning. Don’t you?” Cousins said when asked about his interplay with the jubilant crowd. “If we play like this on a nightly basis, we’ve got a very good chance of being the team that we want to be.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutDavis added 30 points, 14 rebounds and three blocks to help New Orleans win for the third time in four games. New Orleans’ All-Star frontcourt tandem had help from the backcourt, too, with Holiday scoring 29 points and E’Twaun Moore 24 as the Pelicans shot better than 53 percent.“We’re locked in as a unit. We feel like we can battle with the best of them. We’re starting to understand what it takes to win games,” said Cousins, who’s played in only 22 games with Davis since the trade that brought Cousins from Sacramento after last season’s All-Star Game. Wade, meanwhile, recalled Miami’s middling start when he and James first became teammates there in the 2010-11 season.“It just takes time to get that continuity,” Wade said. “At some point, we’ll get tired of being a .500 ball club.”EARLY PUSHMoore, who is starting while New Orleans awaits the recovery of Rajon Rando from a preseason core muscle injury, helped the Pelicans build an early double-digit lead. He hit his first five shots — three of them from 3-point range — and the last of those made it 40-27 early in the second quarter.WADE’S NEW WORLDWade came off the bench for a second straight game, but didn’t seem to mind.“I like the role that coach has me in,” Wade said. “Put the ball in my hands, allow me to make plays, allow me to score and attack and be myself.”He looked fine after missing one game with a left knee bruise. He drove past Holiday for one, soaring two-handed dunk and also set up a graceful floater with a behind-the-back move.UP NEXTCavaliers: Host the New York Knicks on Sunday night. Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa “We’re still learning how to play with one another, but the ball movement’s been good lately. Defensively, we’ve been good.”Cousins mostly scored on powerful inside moves, once dribbling through three converging defenders. He also tossed in the sporadic 3. Davis provided his usual mix of decisive spot-up jumpers and crowd-pleasing dunks, either on the break or crashing the boards for put-backs. Holiday complemented penetrating dribble drives with four 3s.“We’re going to be a special team,” Davis said. “We don’t feel it. We know it.”Kevin Love had 26 points and 11 rebounds for the Cavs, who were without Derrick Rose and trailed most of the game. James had 18 points and Dwyane Wade 15 for Cleveland, which has lost three of four.After trailing by 13 at halftime, Cleveland briefly appeared to be taking control with a 21-7 run during which Love hit three 3s, grabbed four rebounds and added an assist.ADVERTISEMENT Stronger peso trims PH debt value to P7.9 trillion Bellinger, Dodgers top Astros to tie World Series 2-2 “We were playing with a lot of confidence.

We just haven’t put together a good 48-minute span.”Cousins’ three-point play on a driving layup and Holiday’s 3 were bookends of a 12-2 run that put New Orleans back up by nine, and the Pelicans never trailed again.Love briefly left the game after falling to the floor, clutching his left knee under the basket. He returned in the fourth quarter, but the Pelicans put the game away with a 13-3 run, capped by Holiday’s fourth 3-pointer, which made it 108-89.“They’re a tough team to defend,” Love said.TIP-INSCavaliers: Although Rose previously sounded optimistic that his left ankle sprain would be healed enough to play in New Orleans, coach Tyronn Lue said before the game that Rose was still in pain. “I don’t know about a setback, but he still had soreness this morning when he tried to warm up,” Lue said. … Lue added that he inserted the 6-foot-5 Iman Shumpert in the starting lineup against New Orleans because he felt that was the best option for defending the 6-4 Holiday.Pelicans: Newly acquired F Josh Smith made his debut late in the first quarter for his first NBA action since the 2015-16 season.
