All 30 Major League Baseball teams to wear Stoneman Douglas hats this weekend

Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo attended high school there and donated $150,000 in November to help improve the lights at their baseball fields.

The Marlins plan to honor the victims of last week's mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School by wearing the school's baseball caps during their spring training opener on Friday.

Mark Cavendish out of Abu Dhabi Tour on opening day with concussion
Team Dimension Data have since confirmed that Cavendish sustained concussion and whiplash and was withdrawn as a safety protocol. Cavendish will be hoping the crash will have caused only temporary damage after a 2017 season blighted by illness and injury.

Commissioner Rob Manfred said that within 48 hours, all 30 teams were confirmed to wear the school hats during pregame warm-ups for their exhibition openers. The Commissioner has chose to defer the implementation of a pitch timer and a between-batter timer in 2018 in order to provide players with an opportunity to speed up the game without the use of those timers.

Manfred said Major League Baseball received a "really strong sentiment of the clubs it was the appropriate thing to do immediately". The hats might later be signed and auctioned to raise money for the Broward Education Foundation, the official victims fund.

Ryder Cup: Tiger Woods will bring 'fire' to Team USA
United States captain captain Jim Furyk named Woods and Steve Stricker as right-hand-men for this year's contest in France. He served as a Ryder Cup vice captain at Hazeltine in 2016 as well as at last year's Presidents Cup alongside Stricker.

Manfred, according to the release, "has made a decision to defer the implementation of a pitch timer and a between-batter timer in order to provide players with an opportunity to speed up the game without the use of those timers". Former student Nikolas Cruz, 19, was the alleged gunman. Some of the more notable proposals that were reportedly discussed-including a pitch clock and between-batter timer-will not be put to use during the coming season.
