Matt Harvey is a Mets star because he turned down $1 million when he was 18

The Angels offered as much as $1 million, but Harvey, at only 18 years old, said he would not accept even $1.99 million. The pitcher is notoriously stubborn — a trait confirmed multiple times throughout the E:60 profile — and decided to forgo the money to attend the University of North Carolina. There, he rededicated himself to baseball. (USA Today)

Tar Heels come to Clemson for first time since 2012

Heading into a weekend series against the Tar Heels (17-11, 6-6 ACC), Clemson (14-14, 5-7) is still trying to figure many things out at the halfway point of the season.

The players said last Sunday felt like a new start to the year after bouncing back and taking the series finale against Wake Forest after dropping the first two contests. (Anderson Independent Mail)

Oldest living Carolina athlete to lead Walk for Health

It’s a reasonably simple task to find Bob Gersten. If the 94-year-old isn’t at the Chapel Hill Tennis Club, he’s probably playing a round at Finley Golf Club. That is, of course, unless its raining. Then he’ll be heading to the movies. No matter where he is, Gersten’s goal is to stay as active as he was when he first competed in Chapel Hill as a baseball and basketball player more than half a century ago. (UNC.edu)

Matt Harvey puts an exclamation point on dazzling spring

It's finally official: Adam Warren is the Yankees' No. 5 starter

It's been common knowledge since New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman called him the Secretariat of the No. 5 starter competition, but Joe Girardi finally made it official Wednesday: Adam Warren has won the fifth starting pitching job.

Kyle Seager: The most underrated player in the majors

Angels' Chris Iannetta sees clearly now

Of all the performance enhancers that can be purchased, never underestimate the one that helped turn around catcher Chris Iannetta’s time with the Angels. Contact lenses.

It didn’t take him so much strain and concentration to see. “It immediately had a big impact,” Iannetta said. (Orange County Register)
