BOSTON (AP) — A fan at Fenway Park has been taken away on a stretcher after flipping over backward trying to catch a foul ball.
Baylor University President Ken Starr, who gained prominence for his investigation of former U.S. President Bill Clinton's sex life, will have an independent investigation looking at how his school responds to sexual misconduct. Baylor, the world's largest Baptist university, has faced criticism for not doing enough to investigate and discipline a member of its football team who was accused of sexually assaulting a woman who played on the school's women's soccer team.

New England Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady leaves the federal courthouse in New York City, on August 31, 2015A US judge overturned superstar quarterback Tom Brady's four-game suspension for his alleged role in the "Deflate-gate" controversy Thursday, calling it unfair in a ruling the National Football League vowed to appeal for the good of the sport. The ruling by US District Judge Richard Berman paves the way for Brady to take the field with his New England Patriots when the Super Bowl champions host the Pittsburgh Steelers in the NFL season-opener next Thursday. "Brady's four-game suspension is vacated, effective immediately," Berman ruled after failing in his effort to induce the warring sides to reach a settlement.


(Reuters) - The elite PGA Grand Slam of Golf, which brings together the winners of the season's four majors, has been scrapped for this year due to venue complications, the PGA of America said on Thursday. The 36-hole stroke-play event had initially been scheduled for Oct. 20-21 at Donald Trump's National course in Los Angeles but those plans were abandoned in July following a mutual agreement between Trump and the PGA of America. Trump had been criticized for controversial comments he made about undocumented immigrants from Mexico while he launched his Republican candidacy for U.S. president, and plans were made by the PGA at that time to seek out a different venue.

By Steve Bittenbender ASHLAND, Ky. (Reuters) - A county clerk in Kentucky was held in contempt of court and jailed on Thursday for failing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples in defiance of the U.S. Supreme Court. It remained to be seen whether U.S. District Judge David Bunning, at a third hearing later on Thursday, would grant a request by Davis' attorneys to release her. The 49-year-old woman, who has emerged as a darling of social conservatives, has refused to issue licenses to any couples, gay or straight, since the U.S. Supreme Court in June ruled that same-sex couples have the right to marry under the U.S. Constitution, citing her beliefs as an Apostolic Christian.

A sign is pictured at a makeshift memorial for victims of a mass shooting, outside the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in CharlestonBy Harriet McLeod CHARLESTON, S.C. (Reuters) - South Carolina will seek the death penalty for Dylann Roof, who is charged with the June murders of nine black worshippers at a Charleston church, a state prosecutor said on Thursday. The 21-year-old Roof, who is white, has been accused of gunning down his victims, members of a Bible study group at Charleston's Emanuel AME Church, because it was a nationally known historically black church. "This was the ultimate crime and justice from our state calls for the ultimate punishment," Ninth Judicial Circuit Solicitor Scarlett Wilson said at a news conference.
