Mac's Irv Cross to switch to coach
ST. PAUL (AP) -- Former NFL star Irv Cross is getting back on the field.
Macalester College announced Tuesday that Cross, the liberal arts school's athletic director since 1999, will relinquish his duties as AD once a replacement is found. But Cross will be the football team's defensive coordinator as well as serve as a fund-raising consultant.
Cross, a two-time Pro Bowl defensive back with the Philadelphia Eagles and Los Angeles Rams in the 1960s, was also an NFL broadcast analyst for CBS in the late 1970s and early 1980s. He's also done some football commentary for local radio and TV stations since moving to Minnesota.
"He helped bring us a long way in six years," Macalester President Brian Rosenberg said, "and we are fortunate to have him stay on and continue his work with football and in engaging our alumni community."
Webb to transfer from Gophers
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Freshman forward Miles Webb announced on Tuesday that he intends to transfer from Minnesota.
The Brooklyn Park native played sparingly in nine games last season, averaging just 1.0 point and 0.3 rebounds in 2.4 minutes.
"Miles committed to us as a sophomore in high school when this program had a lot of question marks," coach Dan Monson said in a statement. "We'll always be grateful for his commitment to this program and we sincerely hope he has a great career."
Webb did not say where he might transfer.
"I fulfilled a personal goal to play for the Gophers, but now its time for me to continue my career somewhere else," he said.
On Monday, Kerry Wooldridge announced he would transfer as well, but neither player figured prominently in the Gophers' plans for next season.
Galarraga retires one homer shy of 400
NEW YORK (AP) -- Andres Galarraga retired Tuesday after a subpar spring training with the New York Mets, leaving him a homer shy of 400 for his career.
The 43-year-old first baseman signed a minor league deal with the Mets in the offseason after making his second successful return from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma last season.
A five-time All-Star and two-time Gold Glove in a 19-year career, Galarraga was hitting just .235 in 17 games for the Mets this spring, with three home runs and seven RBIs. The Big Cat probably would have been left off New York's 25-man roster when the team broke camp.
With the Colorado Rockies, Galarraga hit .370 to win the NL batting title in 1993 and led the league with 47 homers and 150 RBIs in 1996.
Cardinals trade Myers back to Boston
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- The Boston Red Sox reacquired reliever Mike Myers from St. Louis on Tuesday, bringing back the left-handed specialist who helped them in last year's playoffs.
The Cardinals received two minor leaguers, outfielder Carlos de la Cruz and left-handed pitcher Kevin Ool. The Red Sox designated for assignment righty reliever Anastacio Martinez to make room on their 40-man roster for Myers.
The Red Sox obtained Myers, who has an unorthodox sidearm motion, from Seattle last Aug. 6 but didn't re-sign him after they won the World Series. He has held lefties to a .212 batting average during his career and got two big strikeouts in the playoffs.
Yankees send Prinz to Anaheim
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- The New York Yankees acquired minor league catcher Wil Nieves from the Los Angeles Angels for right-hander Bret Prinz on Tuesday.
By trading for Nieves the Yankees filled a hole created when they sent top prospect Dioner Navarro to Arizona in the deal for Randy Johnson in January.
Nieves will be assigned to Triple-A Columbus, but Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Nieves could be the first player called up if Jorge Posada or John Flaherty are injured.
"It will add depth at catcher," Cashman said.
Nieves hit. 297 with 10 homers and 53 RBIs in 108 games last season for Triple-A Salt Lake.
Prinz went 1-0 with a 5.08 ERA in 26 games with New York last season. He also made 29 appearance, going 3-1, for Columbus.
Mets get Gil from Mariners
VIERA, Fla. (AP) -- The New York Mets acquired infielder Benji Gil from the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday for cash.
Out of the majors since 2003, Gil will report to the Mets' minor league camp. He hit .304 (7-for-23) with one homer and three RBIs this spring for Seattle.
Gil, 32, has a career .237 average over eight seasons with the Angels and Rangers. He was a part-time player on the Angels' 2002 World Series championship team, going 8-for-12 during the postseason.
NBA brawl: Man enters no contest plea
PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) -- A fan charged with throwing a chair during one of the worst brawls in U.S. sports history pleaded no contest Tuesday to a felony assault count.
Bryant Jackson was the only one of the 13 players and fans charged with a felony for their alleged role in the Nov. 19 melee during an Indiana Pacers-Detroit Pistons game at the Palace of Auburn Hills.
Oakland County Circuit Court Judge Rae Lee Chabot indicated she would sentence Jackson to up to three months in jail, but he could get probation if he expresses remorse at the sentencing hearing May 3.
