Longtime Philadelphia Daily News sports writer Bill Conlin, who was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame this year, was accused by relatives and former neighbors of sexually molesting children in the 1970s.
In a story posted on the Philadelphia Inquirer website Tuesday afternoon, three women and a man detailed the abuse they say occurred when they were between the ages of 7 and 12, and they indicated more children were victimized by Conlin. Parents of some of the accusers backed up the stories.
Conlin, 77, retired from the Daily News on Tuesday as the story broke. He had written for the paper since 1965, covering the Phillies from 1966-87 and then becoming a columnist. He has appeared on ESPN's "The Sports Reporters." He was the 2011 recipient of the J.G....
WALTHAM -- Paul Pierce won't play in Wednesday's final exhibition game against the Raptors and there is now "concern" in the words of coach Doc Rivers that the captain may not be available for the regular season opener against the Knicks on Christmas Day.
"I’m concerned, not long-term, but I’m concerned short-term," Rivers said. "We have those two games right off the bat and he’s gone one practice and that’s basically it. So, yeah I’m concerned about it."
Pierce has missed most of training camp with what has been described as a sore right heel. Rivers said that Pierce worked out on Monday while the rest of the team was off.
"He went real hard [on Monday] and it’s just real sore," Rivers said. "We just want him to rest. The problem with that is it will be a lot of rest and then he may be ready but with no [practice time], that’s scary; and if he’s...
FOXBORO -- After not making the trip with the team to Denver and being spotted courtside at the Celtics scrimmage at TD Garden on Friday night, safety Patrick Chung returned to Patriots practice Tuesday inside the Dana Farber Field House.
Chung injured his right foot on Nov. 6 against the Giants and has missed all six games since, despite practicing with the team in the interim.
Practice was limited to a simple walkthrough as the team prepares for its Christmas Eve battle with Dolphins Saturday afternoon at Gillette Stadium. The only two players missing were back-up defensive end Eric Moore and offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer.
The Patriots announced Tuesday that defensive end Andre Carter has been placed on injured reserve with a leg injury. In addition, they have signed defensive lineman Cedric McKinley to the practice squad.
Carter, 32, signed with the Patriots on Aug. 8. Carter, 6-foot-4, 255 pounds, originally entered the NFL as a first round draft pick (seventh overall) of San Francisco in 2001 out of California. He was signed by Washington as an unrestricted free agent on March 15, 2006. Carter has started all 14 games for New England in 2011 and has 59 tackles and 10.0 sacks. He tied a franchise record with 4.0 sacks at the Jets on Nov. 13 and was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week for his performance.
McKinley, 24, was originally signed by the Minnesota Vikings as a rookie free agent out of Minnesota on May 4, 2010 but was released prior to the start of training camp. He was re-signed by Minnesota on July 31 and has spent part of the 2011 season...
