USC to return Reggie Bush's Heisman

The Heisman Trophy won by USC running back Reggie Bush in 2005 will be returned to the Heisman Trophy Trust, USC president C.L. Max Nikias disclosed in a memo Tuesday.

 

Murals honoring Bush and former USC basketball standout O.J. Mayo will also be removed.

 

An NCAA report released June 10 found that Bush had accepted improper benefits while playing for USC. The school was slapped with a two-year bowl ban and stripped of 30 scholarships over a three-year span.

 

Nikias also announced that athletic director Mike Garrett will be replaced by former USC quarterback Pat Haden. Haden, who played for the Rams from 1976-81, led USC to three Rose Bowl appearances. He is currently an analyst for Notre Dame football on NBC.

Lowrie to be activated this week by Sox

Red Sox infielder Jed Lowrie, who has missed the entire season to date while recovering from mononucleosis, will join the major league club in Oakland after a rehab assignment with Single-A Lowell and Triple-A Pawtucket, according to reports out of Oakland. Lowrie is expected to be activated later this week.

 

In 10 games between the two levels on his rehab assignment, Lowrie hit .367 with a .447 OBP, .600 slugging mark, one homer and nine runs batted in. Five of his 11 hits went for extra bases. He played second, short, third and DH during his rehab assignment.

 

Lowrie suggested during his rehab assignment that he is "an asset to [the Red Sox]." Now, he is on the cusp of having the opportunity to demonstrate that point at the major league level.

Wakefield goes for Sox record on Tuesday

Red Sox starter Tim Wakefield, at 43 years, 352 days, would become the oldest pitcher in franchise history to win a game should he claim a victory in Oakland on Tuesday night. The knuckleballer would surpass the record established by Dennis Eckersley, who claimed a victory in relief at 43 years, 349 days on Sept. 17, 1998.

 

Wakefield (3-8, 5.65) will get the ball on Tuesday night, but with Clay Buchholz (Wednesday) and Josh Beckett (Friday) scheduled to return to the rotation in the coming days, Wakefield is likely to lose his regular turn in the rotation following Tuesday's outing.
