MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota Twins shortstop Eduardo Escobar has been named the American League Player of the Week. Escobar batted .462 with six doubles, one triple, two home runs and eight RBIs in 26 at-bats over seven games last week. He had multiple hits in five of those games. This is the first weekly league honor of Escobar’s career. The 29-year-old Escobar leads the major leagues with 26 doubles this season. He’s tied for first with Cleveland’s Jose Ramirez with 39 extra-base hits.
BOONE — The Iowa High School Athletic Association’s Board of Control on Monday unanimously approved a wrestling advisory committee recommendation to seed the state traditional wrestling tournament starting in 2019.
The committee’s recommendation was to construct brackets with criteria that seeds the top eight wrestlers in each of the 14 weight classes across all three classifications.
The online formula will replace the random draw the IHSAA previously used, which paired district champions with district runners-up for the first round. Now wrestlers are compared in a pre-tournament scoring system against every other qualifier in their 16-person bracket, with the top eight wrestlers receiving seeding and the other eight drawn in at random, while separating qualifiers from the same district tournament.
The IHSAA joins about 30 other state associations using TrackWrestling for state tournament seeding.
NORTH LIBERTY — The Prime Time League is gearing up for its 32nd season and Director Randy Larson says player applications are still being accepted heading into Sunday’s draft. The league will feature 12 players each from Iowa and Northern Iowa.
Larson says Hawkeyes players Tyler Cook and Isaiah Moss will be part of the league after testing out the NBA Draft. Larson says it is a process that will benefit both players.
Larson says players interested in being part of the draft may contact the league for information.
The Prime Time League will compete on eight nights beginning Wednesday, June 20 and the games will switch between North Liberty and Waterloo.
Games will be on Wednesday and Sunday nights with the championship game scheduled for July 25.
