Finally some good news for the last place Phillies


Finally some good news for the last place Phillies

From Comcast SportsNetDENVER (AP) -- Phillies ace Roy Halladay is scheduled to be activated from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday and start the game that night against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The right-hander has been sidelined by a strained right lat muscle since May 28. Team officials announced the plans Sunday. Halladay passed the final test in his six-week rehab when he threw a bullpen session Saturday with no problems. He told reporters following that session that he felt fine. The team will have to make a corresponding roster move to make room for Halladay once he's activated. Halladay is 4-5 with a 3.98 ERA in 11 starts this season. He left his May 27 start against St. Louis early because of shoulder soreness. A subsequent MRI revealed the muscle strain in the back of his right shoulder.

Ted Leonsis offers to replace hats for Capitals fans in Minnesota

Ted Leonsis offers to replace hats for Capitals fans in Minnesota

Nearly every hat trick in hockey you see hats scatter the ice. Its an age-old tradition for the home fans to toss their favorite team's head garment far out into the game surface. Rarely, but not unheard of, fans on the road have the audacity to show their pride and toss their $20-$100 hat.

A majority of the time, fans do not (or are unable to) retrive their hat, but if you are a Washington Capitals fan in Minnesota you may be in luck.

Following the Capitals overtime win against the Wild, the Caps owner Ted Leonsis is offering to replace a hat for every Capitals fan that tossed one out onto the ice Tuesday night in Minnesota's Xcel Energy Center. 

The hat tossing of course is courtesy of Ovechkin's hat trick against the Wild. 

Last season, Leonsis offered the same deal for Capitals fans who were also in Minnesota for you guessed it, an Ovechkin hat trick.
