Will Middlebrooks Traded to San Diego Padres

Former Boston Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks has been traded to the San Diego Padres, as reported by the AP. The Padres later confirmed the trade on Twitter.





Middlebrooks has a stellar rookie campaign in 2012, followed by two disappointing seasons in 2013 and 2014. The Padres are banking on a change of scenery helping revive Middlebrooks' career, and we could see him starting at third base for the team in 2015.

Headed to the Red Sox in exchange is catcher Ryan Hanigan. Hanigan was acquired by the Padres from the Tampa Bay Rays earlier this week, and is now headed back to the East Coast with the Sox.

Middlebrooks is the brother of former Tulsa star and Buffalo coach & current Northeastern State assistant coach Lacey Middlebrooks.

Christmas Contest, Day 1

Christmas is the season for giving, right? Well, we have some GREAT stuff to give away this year, but you're going to have to earn it! Here's how the Justin's World Christmas Contest 2k14 is going to work:

Every day between now and Christmas Eve (that's eight days), we're going to post three clues about a mystery player. Your job is to identify the player. Guess right, you get points. The person with the most points on Christmas day is the winner. The winner will be announced the day after Christmas.

The point system will work as follows: The first person to answer correctly on ANY platform will receive 5 points. Any subsequent correct answers will receive 1 point. The person with the most points on Christmas Day will be declared the winner; one random person among all other participants will also receive a consolation prize.

There are a couple of other ways to get more points for yourself and better your chances of winning:
Follow @justfactsmaam on Twitter = 1 point
"Like" Justin's World on Facebook = 1 point
Refer a friend to "Like" Justin's World* = 3 points

* In order to make sure all point are awarded correctly, the referred person should post or comment on the Justin's World Facebook page w/ the name of the person who referred them. If this is not done, as we have no other way to check it, no points will be rewarded. *

Of course, no contest would be complete without prizes! The winner will receive a prize pack that includes autographs, merchandise, and unique items. All told, the items included in the prize pack are valued at more than $25.

All righty, now that we've gotten the particulars out of the way, it's time for the first Who Am I set of clues! Think you know who it is? Make your guesses in the comment section here; on the Justin's World Facebook page, or tweet @justfactsmaam on Twitter.


a. I am one of four sisters
b. All four of us played collegiate softball
c. I am the only one to play east of the Rocky Mountains

Aimee Creger Named Assistant Softball Coach at Pitt State

Tulsa Golden Hurricane legendary pitcher Aimee Creger has been named assistant softball coach at Pittsburg State, she announced on social media today.
Creger during her career at Tulsa

For Creger, who graduated following her senior season in 2014, the position will be her first venture into the collegiate coaching ranks.

Creger ended her playing career at Tulsa as the career record holder in wins and strikeouts, with 1,080 Ks to her credit and just three career victories short of 100.

Creger played as a member of Team USA in 2013, and after sitting out this past summer due to a back injury, is set to tryout for the squad once again next month.

Worthy of note is that, despite the similarity in name to the populous Pennsylvania city, Pitt State is located in Pittsburg, Kansas, a town of roughly 20,000. 

Creger joins the Gorillas' staff under the captainship of Elizabeth Economon. The squad finished 30-24 in 2014, and barely missed the conference's postseason tournament.
