[...] members of four East Bay Athletic League squads along with Freedom-Oakley will gather at 5 p.m. Saturday at San Ramon Valley-Danville not to scrimmage, but to partake in family-reunion-type games like tug of war and three-legged races.All of is it to honor and support Jake Javier, a former San Ramon Valley football player who is paralyzed from the chest down following a 2016 graduation pool-party diving accident.Javier, an All-Metro two-way tackle bound for Cal Poly on a football scholarship, suffered life-threatening injuries, severe trauma to his vertebrae and nine months of extensive surgeries and rehabilitation before returning home in April.Javier had 10 million embryonic stem cells injected into his spine during one of the surgeries.“He’s a real special kid with a powerful message and he could use our help,” said longtime De La Salle-Concord coach Bob Ladouceur, a San Ramon Valley graduate.Ladouceur, who won 399 games as head coach at De La Salle (he’s now an assistant) and is an NFHS Hall of Fame member, organized Saturday’s “Day of Games” event that also includes the Spartans, Monte Vista-Danville and California-San Ramon.Over a nearly 40-year career, Ladouceur felt very fortunate that none of his players endured catastrophic injury on the field.After a surprising championship at the Nike EYBL Peach Jam final, the Oakland Soldiers lost 78-72 to Team Takeover (Washington, D.C.) in the final of the 8 AAU boys basketball championship Friday in Las Vegas.In a stunning 62-61 semifinal win Thursday over Team CP3, incoming St. Ignatius senior Darrion Trammell hit two free throws with two seconds left for the winning margin.Thanks largely to his stellar summer play for the Soldiers, Akinjo, a 6-foot point guard, has 13 college offers including from Cal, Connecticut and Indiana.MaxPreps senior writer Mitch Stephens covers high school sports for The San Francisco Chronicle.

By Susan Slusser - Saturday Jul 1, 2017
Ex-A’s All-Stars Ramon Hernandez, Barry Zito return to Coliseum“It’s great, it brings back old, great memories in this ballpark,” said Hernandez, who caught the game’s ceremonial first pitch from Zito as fans gave the former A’s players a nice round of applause.ZIto hadn’t seen Hernandez since Zito was with the Giants and Hernandez with the Rockies and the San Francisco players were accusing Hernandez of stealing signs.Randy Hernandez is a corner infielder, not a catcher.Hernandez had lots of fond memories of the Oakland fans, saying, They’re good fans, they always cheer for you whether you’re doing good or doing bad.Zito was happy to be back on a throwback jersey day with the 2000 black jerseys, which he loved.Susan Slusser is a San Francisco Chronicle staff writer.

- Bald eagle threat: Lead ammo left behind by hunters
By MARY ESCH, Associated Press - Sunday Jul 16, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Bald eagles have made a remarkable recovery across the United States since the pesticide DDT was banned 45 years ago, but the majestic birds are still dying from another environmental poison: lead from bullets and shotgun pellets in wildlife carcasses left behind by hunters.In New York, which has been a leader in the bald eagle restoration in the Northeast for four decades, state wildlife researchers have documented a growing number of eagle deaths from lead poisoning in recent years.In New York, lead poisoning was confirmed as the cause of death in 38 of 336 bald eagles brought to a Department of Environmental Conservation lab near Albany between 2000 and 2015, said state wildlife biologist Kevin Hynes, who does the necropsies."Eagles are doing very well, their recovery is a great success story largely supported by excise taxes paid by hunters" on lead ammunition and guns, said Lawrence Keane, senior vice president of the National Shooting Sports Association.Virginia wildlife advocate Clark said that rather than a ban on lead ammunition, his group is seeking a public education campaign so hunters are aware of the problem and how they can help.
