 Olympics can be economic boon or bust
The $235 million Olympic Stadium was retrofitted into a baseball park and is now called Turner Field, the home of the Atlanta Braves.
Greece estimated in November that the cost of the 2004 Summer Olympics could run as high as $14.6 billion, more than double the estimates from a year earlier.
It's also important for Olympic planners and the private sector to understand the kind of consumers who attend the games, said Ernie Goss, an economics professor at Creighton University in Omaha, Neb., who has studied the effect the 2002 Winter Games had on Salt Lake City.

The ultimate one-hit wonder crafted a single, scintillating masterpiece season in 1976 with the Tigers, filling both home and away stadiums with his pitching prowess and zany mound antics.
Which got us to thinking about baseball's shooting stars, the players (and one team) who scored the equivalent of a hit single (one or a few great games), or a hit album (a great season), then were pretty much through.
Sometimes, they're one-hit wonders -- players for whom this turns out to be not only the best season of their baseball careers, but also the only one worth talking about.

Blacks came to appear in numbers at second base in the mid-1970s and at shortstop during the 1976-1986 decade, but this progress was obscured when the three central positions were combined.
Earlier work (Phillips, 1983) showed limited or no progress in the accessibility of central positions (catcher, shortstop, second base) to black professional baseball aspirants.

 Yankee dugout change - Baseball Fever
I think that the Yankees have been in the first-base-side dugout at Yankee Stadium since it re-opened in 1976.
If I am not mistaken, I believe they used the third-base-side dugout at the old Stadium until it closed after the 1973 season, and then they began using the first-base-side dugout when playing in Shea Stadium in 1974 and 1975.
Thanks for trying to give me an answer to the question of what year did the Yankees switch dugouts from the third base side to the first base side but unfortunately neither answer was right.

 Baseball Commissioner sees gloomy future
Some baseball executives have said another work stoppage would be preferable to continuing with the current system, which has seen the average salary rise from $51,500 in 1976 to $2.38 million on opening day this year.
MILWAUKEE -- Painting a gloomy picture of baseball's immediate future, Commissioner Bud Selig acknowledged the possibility of another work stoppage but hoped an agreement with players could still be reached.
A day earlier, the executive board of the players' association did not set a strike deadline but asked players on each team to give the board authority to call what would be baseball's ninth work stoppage since 1972.

Nicholson became Tottenham's coach in 1958 and, in his 16 years in charge, helped Spurs become the first club to achieve the league and FA Cup double championship in the 20th century, the first to win the league cup twice and the first British club to win a European trophy.
Nicholson joined Spurs as a player in 1936, but his career was interrupted by World War II, where he fought as an infantryman.

 1976 World Series by Baseball Almanac
As the Series returned to the "not-so familiar" surroundings of Yankee Stadium (due to the two year long modernizing process that had sent the Yanks to Shea from '74-'76) the Reds continued to dominate the home team.
The 1976 World Series was the first ever to utilize the designated hitter.
Amazingly, Anderson did not make a single change during the entire Series among his nine regulars, forsaking the use of a pinch-hitter or a pinch-runner and never making a switch in either his batting order or fielding alignment.
