 Save (baseball) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
To save a game in baseball means to maintain the lead that the pitchers team has at the time.
In baseball statistics the term save (abbreviated SV or S) is used to indicate the successful maintenance of a lead by a relief pitcher, usually the closer, until the end of the game.
A blown save (abbreviated BS) is charged to a pitcher who enters a game in a situation which permits him to earn a save (a 'save situation'), but who instead allows the tying run to score.

Free TV CEO, Julie Flynn, said “it is disappointing that the new guidelines do nothing to reassure Australian sports fans that in the future they will not be forced to pay for sports they currently see for free.” Click here for a copy of the media release.

 Ronaldo back to 'save' Real: Sport: Soccer: News24
"Ronnie to the rescue," was how sports daily AS on Friday saw the significance of the World Cup-winning striker's return to training some two months after a knee operation in his homeland.
"Ronaldo's return is a relief," said Marca sports daily as Real sought to heal their wounds following their outclassing by the French champions for the second year in a row.
AS said Ronaldo's return "opens new perspectives" for Capello, who can now add him to an attack which has been led to date this season by new signing Van Nistelrooy, who bagged a hattrick at Levante in the league but who was powerless to produce a repeat against Lyon.

 Save Our Sport by John Furgele, June 25, 2003
For years, it was wrestling that was given the heave-ho, in order to save money and to comply with Title IX legislation.
The other way is to count up the number of athletes in all intercollegiate sports and make sure it's even.
Because there are no women's sports that require such a number, schools have a choice: add more women's sports, or cut men's sports.

The screening, done before participation in sports is permitted, is a life-saving tool which should be considered for use elsewhere including in North America where no such system exists, said Gaetano Thiene, a physician with the Padua Centre for Sports Medicine, one of the study's authors.
Since 1982, Italian law has required every athlete participating in competitive sports to undergo a check that includes a health history, physical exam and an electrocardiogram to detect potentially deadly heart abnormalities.
The study, published in this week's Journal of the American Medical Association, looked at changes in sudden heart-related death rates among thousands of athletes age 12 to 35 in the Veneto region of Italy from 1979 to 2004.

It was no surprise that matters European dominated proceedings afterwards, for this was a strictly regulation win for the champions, a goal in each half killing off what had begun as a spirited Sheffield United challenge.
United had already missed their two penalties this season and this turned out to be a third, Danny Webber sidefooting the ball low but with insufficient power to stop Hilario saving quite comfortably diving to his left.
