McGuire Pleads No Contest
Toronto Blue Jays catcher Reese McGuire pleaded no contest to a disorderly conduct charge and paid $ 500 after an incident in Florida this Winter.

The charge was later reduced to disorderly conduct and formally processed last Thursday.
NHL & Players Extend CBA
The National Hockey League and the Players’ Association announced a signed " memorandum of understanding " on a number of issues, including a 4-year extension to the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
The agreement must be ratified by both the NHL Board of Governors and NHLPA’s full membership before NHL training camps open on July 13th.
A majority is needed among players while three-quarters of owners have to support the plan for it to be official.
Both votes are expected to be positive.
NHL COVID Results
The National Hockey League says 35 players have tested positive for coronavirus.
The league says 23 of 396 players checked for COVID-19 at team facilities have tested positive since voluntary Phase 2 workouts began in early June
The NHL added it is aware of 12 additional positive test results..
More than 2,900 tests have been conducted at team facilities.
Dallas Drops Out
FC Dallas has withdrawn from the " MLS is Back " Tournament after 10 players and a coach tested positive for COVID-19.
FC Dallas is currently in quarantine in Orlando
The MLS tournament now has 25 teams and is scheduled to start tomorrow at Disney's Wide World of Sports complex in Orlando
Three Canadian teams; Toronto FC, the Montreal Impact and the Vancouver Whitecaps will compete in the tournament.
Chiefs Sign Mahomes For A Decade
The Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League have signed Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes to a 10-year extension worth up to $503 million,
It's the richest contract in professional sports history, surpassing Mike Trout's deal with the Los Angeles Angels in baseball.
Mahomes agreed to the extension which includes a no-trade clause and opt-out clauses if guarantee mechanisms aren't met.
The quarterback, known as " Showtime, Magic Man, The Musician, Fatrick, The Gunslinger or Mahomeboy " was the NFL's MVP in 2018.
The contract extension for the quarterback starts in 2022 when the NFL salary cap is projected to be $227 million.
However, that number could be lower depending on revenue losses due to the coronavirus pandemic
The initial proposal from the Canadian Football League to the Players' Association includes a shortened training camp, prorated salaries, reduced time between games plus expanded practice rosters.
Among the items being discussed is a 6-game season with an expanded 8-team playoff format.
The CFL will require approval from medical authorities across the country, plus a new collective bargaining agreement and financial assistance from the Canadian government
