ESPN Takes Schilling Off LLWS Broadcast After Anti-Muslim Tweet

Schilling retweeted a post that said, ‘‘Only 5-10% of Muslims are extremists. In 1940, only 7% of Germans were Nazis. How’d that go?’’ The post was soon removed from his Twitter feed.

Rockies’ Jerry Schemmel rides across America for Haiti orphanage

Watching the Rockies lose night after night might seem like punishment to some. For others, six-hour, 90-mile training rides on a bicycle would seem like suffering.

Jerry Schemmel does both, but he considers both to be blessings.

The Rockies radio announcer is training to hold up his end of a two-man team in the Race Across America (RAAM), a seven-day transcontinental bike race beginning June 20. Schemmel will be paired with Brad Cooper, who has completed seven Ironman triathlons, on the ride that begins in Oceanside, Calif., and ends in Annapolis, Md.

Schemmel rides because surviving the crash landing of an airliner that killed 112 people in 1989 gave him a new perspective on life.
