New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - June 15, 2011, New Braunfels, Texas SPORTS Mavericks savoring title DALLAS (AP) Dirk Nowitzki was talking about the NBA championship capping his career wisn list and how much it meant after all the heartbreaks along the way. He wondered aloud about trying to find something else that could push him so hard. Then he stopped, laughed and said: "I'm not going to retire or anything if that's what you think." The Mavericks are back in Dallas after wrapping up the franchise's first title. While the Mavericks know they'll have the finals MVP back next season, it remains to be seen who will be part of Nowitzki's supporting cast. Starting center Tyson Chandler, valuable guard J.J. Barea, injured scorer Caron Butler, DeShawn Stevenson, Brian Cardinal and Peja Stojakovic are all free agents. The NBA's uncertain labor status complicates things. So, for now, the Mavs are focused on savoring the first title in franchise history. Jason Terry delighted in wearing a new white robe with the finals logo on one side of the chest, gold leafs in front of the NBA logo on the other; it was a gift from coach Rick Carlisle, who two years ago took away his favorite robe during a losing streak. Barea already has plans to take the championsnip trophy to Puerto Rico.. A crowd of 250,000 is expected when the newly crowned NBA champion Dallas Mavericks are honored with a parade Thursday. Team owner Mark Cuban has offered to pick up the tab, so it should be a doozy of a party. CHARLOTTE, N.C. Waltrip, Yarborough make NASCAR HOF The wait is over for Cale Yarborough and Darrell Waltrip. On the third try, the championship-winning drivers are headed to the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Yarborough and Waltrip headline the third five-member class announced Tuesday. They're joined by eight-time series champion crew chief Dale Inman, ninetime Modified champion Richie Evans and pioneering driver Glen Associated Press Wood. HOUSTON Struggling Astros fire pitching coach The Houston Astros have fired pitching coach Brad Arnsberg and replaced him on an interim basis with Doug Brocail, a former Astros pitcher. The Astros, who have the worst record in baseball at 25-42, announced the move in a release Tuesday citing philosophical differences. Arnsberg was hired as Houston's pitching coach in October of 2009. Houston's pitchers have the second highest ERA in the National League this season with 4.69 and have allowed an NL-leading 78 homers. NEW YORK NFL, NFLPA meet in Washington D.C. Negotiators for the NFL and its players were meeting Tuesday at an undisclosed location in the Washington area, trying to break a labor impasse now in its fourth month. This marks the third week the sides have met. Previous "secret" meetings have taken place in Chicago and New York. At the request of both sides, the site of Tuesday's meetinj was not being disclose« HOUSTON Horry’s daughter dies after long illness The 17-year-old daughter of former NBA star Robert Horry has died after battling a rare genetic condition. Ashlyn Horry was born in Houston in 1994 and eventually diagnosed with the 1p36 Deletion Syndrome, a rare chromosome disease that is characterized by intellectual disability, delayed growth, seizures and respiratory problems. Texas Children's Hospital spokeswoman Nicole Terry says Ashlyn Horry died there on Tuesday. Robert Horry won seven NBA championships with three teams in 16 NBA seasons. The Houston Rockets selected Horry out of Alabama with the 11 th overall pick in the 1992 draft. 2011 THSBCA ALL-STATE BASEBALL TEAMS Courtesy photo Canyon catcher Tanner Hill was selected 4A first-team all-state by the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association. HIGH HONOR CHS’ Hill earns first-team honors By Chris Hoffman The Herald-Zeitung The postseason accolades continue to pour in for the best of the Comal County baseball players. On Tuesday, Canyon's Tanner Hill leads the list of five all-state selections from the area schools. Hill was named Class 4A first-team all-state after the junior catcher batted .533 with nine home runs, 42 RBIs, scored 47 runs with 14 doubles for the Cougars this season. "This is a big honor for him," Canyon coach Brian Martinez said. "He's worked really hard and was a huge part of the Cougars' success this season." Joining Hill is Canyon third baseman Mac James, who batted .450 with four home runs, 35 RBIs, scored 42 runs and had 19 doubles in his senior season for the Cougars. "Mac got bigger and stronger this season, and it showed in his performance on the field," Martinez said. "He put up some really good numbers in the No. 4 slot in the batting order, which helped protect Tanner in the No. 3 spot. Smithson Valley's Matt Hilston was a 4A second-team all-state selection. Hilston, a senior outfielder/pitcher, led the Rangers to the Region IV-4A semifinals after batting .403 with a singleseason school record 13 home runs, 45 RBIs and 52 hits, while going 5-1 with a 3.14 ERA on the mound for Smithson Valley. Junior Ralph Garza and senior Estevan Salazar were named to the Class 5A second and third team all-state squad, respectively. Garza, a shortstop, batted .404 with three home runs and a team-leading 36 RBIs, while going 8-1 with 79 strikeouts and a 2.41 ERA on the mound for New Braunfels. Salazar, a third baseman, batted .431 with 27 RBIs and led the team with 50 hits this season. Hilston and Salazar were selected to play in the THSBCA All-Star Game in Round Rock on Sunday. Karstens, Pirates blank Astros 1-0 HOUSTON (AP) Jeff Karstens pitched three-hit ball into the seventh inning and five relievers finished the four-hitter, leading the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 1 -0 victory over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night. Garrett Jones drove in the game's only run with a single to right field in the second inning. Karstens (4-4) struck out three and walked none in 6 2-3 innings. The righthander is 1-0 with a sparkling 0.44 ERA in three starts in June and is working on a scoreless streak of 14 2-3 innings. Joel Hanrahan pitched a perfect ninth for his 18th save. Bud Norris (4-5) kept Houston in the game with another sharp outing in his first start since taking a no-hitter into the seventh inning last week against the Cardinals. He struck out nine in seven innings, yielding one run and six nits. Houston's Hunter Pence went 0 for 4 to snap his career-best 23-game hitting streak. Curtis Granderson, Yankees top Texas NEW YORK (AP) Curtis Granderson homered and drove in four runs, Eduardo Nunez — filling in for an injured Derek Jeter — sparked a six-run second inning with an RBI single and the New York Yankees beat the Texas Rangers 12-4 on Tuesday night. Brett Gardner scored three of the four times he reached base, had an RBI single among three hits and stole his 100th base batting in Jeter's leadoff spot. Granderson singled in two runs and Mark Teix- eira had a two-run double in the second when New York batted around and knocked out Alexi Ogan-do, his second horrible outing in the Bronx. CC Sabathia (8-4) pitched seven effective innings in helping the Yankees (5-2) secure the season series against the team that beat them in the AL championship series last October with two games remaining. Ogando (7-1) was trying to match Tommy Hunter's club record for a starter of eight wins without a loss to begin a season.
