    When you earn your motorcycle endorsement, the letter “M” is stamped on your driver’s license right next to height, as if “motorcycle” was just another part of your physical characteristics, or maybe a mental condition.

  • Rogers joins twin in the pros

    Tyler Rogers was sitting on the couch in his brother’s apartment in Fort Myers, Fla., watching the webcast of the annual Major League Baseball amateur draft. It was late on June 7, with just a handful of picks left in the 10th round and his name yet to be called.
    Rogers, who had watched the broadcast all day, shut his computer down but still had it up on the TV. He didn’t think he would be drafted, at least not on this night. Then the 6-foot-4, 190-pound right-handed reliever heard his name called as the 312th selection overall by the San Francisco Giants.

  • Coach of the year
