Pats camp open to public starting July 26

The Patriots announced Tuesday that training camp will be open to the public starting Thursday, July 26, with a practice session that will run from 1:30 to 4 p.m. They also revealed the schedule for the first four days of camp that will be open to the public:

July 26: 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.
July 27: 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.
July 28: 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.
July 29: 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Additional practice dates and times will be announced soon. It's important to remember that practice plans can change because of weather (if it's raining, they'll move inside to the practice bubble, which means things are closed to the public) or a team decision (coaches will occasionally cancel practice), so fans planning on attending camp are encouraged to call the Training Camp hotline at 508-549-0001 or visit

Lowell: Youk trade solved 'awkward situation'
By: DJ Bean

Former Red Sox third baseman Mike Lowell joined The Big Show Tuesday to discuss the Red Sox and the trade of Kevin Youkilis. 

Lowell said that while the return the Sox got -- pitcher Zach Stewart and utility man Brent Lillibridge -- wasn't overwhelming, the team was able to get out of an "awkward situation," as the veteran Youkilis had lost playing time to 23-year-old Will Middlebrooks. 

"We'll see if it's a good trade," Lowell said. "This is a wait-and-see thing. I understand the move for the Red Sox. From what I've seen, I love what I've seen from Middlebrooks. Young kid, strong, has got power, is a run-producer. He's shown that he can handle this level. Now, is there a track record? No, but I think there's enough of what they've seen that they say, 'You know what? We're freeing ourselves of an awkward situation,' because when the other guys come back, what are you going to do?

"You can't throw...

Oates elected to HOF, named Caps coach
By: DJ Bean

Former Bruins center Adam Oates had quite the day Tuesday, being named head coach of the Capitals and elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame. 

Oates, who played parts of six seasons in Boston, had 324 goals and 1079 assists for 1420 points over the course of his NHL career. He was acquired by the B's during the 1991-92 season for Craig Janney and Stephane Quintal until he was traded to the Capitals in 1997 along with Bill Ranford and Rick Tocchet for Jim Carey, Anson Carter, Jason Allison and a third-round pick. 

Oates, a five-time All-Star, ranks sixth on the all-time list and is the oldest player to lead the league in assists, as he had 64 apples between the Capitals and Flyers in 2001-02 at the age of 39. He joins Joe Sakic, Mats Sundin and Pavel Bure as players who will enter the Hall of Fame in November.

The 49-year-old has spent the last two seasons as an assistant coach for the Devils. He played six seasons for the Capitals and...

OHL coach expects Hamilton to make B's
By: DJ Bean

Niagara IceDogs (OHL) general manager and head coach Marty Williamson told Tuesday that the team is not expecting to have defenseman Dougie Hamilton back next season. Hamilton, the Bruins' ninth overall pick in the 2011 draft, had 17 goals and 55 assists for 72 points in 50 games for the IceDogs while playing between 25-28 minutes a night and occasionally logging more than 30 minutes a game. 

Junior-aged played (under 20 years old; Hamilton turned 19 this month) can play up to nine games with their NHL team and be sent back to their junior team without a year being burned off their entry-level deal, but Williamson thinks Hamilton will have a much longer stay in Boston than that.

"He's NHL-ready. I would not expect him back," Williamson said. "I know Boston's on a different program than some teams -- they're winning every year -- and maybe that would factor in or something, but I think he's definitely going to start with...

Report: C's acquire 2013 second-round pick

The Celtics will receive Charlotte's second-round pick in the 2013 draft from Oklahoma City after the Celtics lodged a complaint with the NBA regarding Jeff Green's heart condition, per a report from Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski. Green missed the entire 2011-12 season after he underwent surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm.

The Bobcats pick was obtained by Oklahoma City in an earlier transaction involving Byron Mullens. The Celtics also received the Clippers' first-round pick in Thursday's draft from the Thunder in the Green trade that sent Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson to Oklahoma City.
