Pittsburgh City Council candidate brings honest cents to campaign - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Pittsburgh City Council candidate brings honest cents to campaign - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: "YANKEE CLIPPED. California University of Pennsylvania has one of the top graduate athletic training education programs in the country, but don't tell that to the New York Yankees.

With a slew of Yankees suffering muscular injuries this spring, General Manager Brian Cashman decided Wednesday to eject the team's new strength and conditioning coach, Marty Miller, 34, CalU class of 2004.

The last straw was 12 days ago when the Yanks' phenom pitcher, Phil Hughes, suffered a left hamstring injury after keeping the Texas Rangers hitless for 6 1/3 innings.

Miller earned a degree in exercise science from the Washington County school and is scheduled to appear at the university for two sports 'performance enhancement' camps in July. Miller had been in the position only a couple of months."

The person fired was not the Athletic Trainer, but the strength and conditioning coach. There is a BIG difference between a Certified Athletic Trainer and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach

Yes. I understand that there is a big difference between those two roles.

Sorry to get it wrong -- but -- I just posted what was published by the Tribune Review (daily newspaper in Pgh, PA). I'm not shocked that the Trib got it wrong. They get many things wrong. Especially in the editorial dept.

Thanks for the clarification.

Go Sox, by the way (cheers from my son). But, none here would be happy to have players hurt.
