Martin Dahlin and his wife, Asa, never really talked about this at home with their son, Rasmus. But for some time, the Dahlin family knew they would be sitting here, in a hockey rink someplace in North America, watching Rasmus play. That someplace became Buffalo late last month, when the Sabres used the first overall pick in the National Hockey League entry draft to select Rasmus, an 18-year-old Swedish hockey star projected to be the best defenseman of his generation. That brought the Dahlin family to Buffalo, where Rasmus was introduced as a Sabre in a June 25 press conference, then participated in the team's four-day developmental camp. Martin and Asa Dahlin embrace their son, Rasmus, moments after he was selected first overall by the Buffalo Sabres on June 22 at the NHL Entry Draft in Dallas. (James P. McCoy/Buffalo News) Each day, upwards of a couple thousand fans sat in the stands at HarborCenter, most of them eager to watch Rasmus. Among them was the Dahin family: Martin, … [Read more...] about Sending your son off to the NHL: Dahlin’s dad’s perspective

His dad is Pat Kelly, the Reds’ bench coach. “I guess in a perfect world,” the elder Kelly said, “he throws six shutout innings, and we beat the reliever.” Pat Kelly has walked a fine line the past couple of days, trying to balance his gig in the Reds’ organization with the fact his kid is the starting pitcher on the team that’s in town to begin a three-game series. … [Read more...] about Giants’ Casey Kelly pitches against Reds, whose bench coach is his dad, Pat Kelly

By Cam Inman | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: August 6, 2018 at 2:30 pm | UPDATED: August 7, 2018 at 3:45 pm SANTA CLARA — Gary Pettis watched in the distance from the VIP friends-and-family section at 49ers training camp Monday, wearing a light-orange golf shirt, a new 49ers cap and an approving smile. Imagine his pride as his son, Dante, lined up in the right slot, quickly grabbed a slant pass and never broke stride into the open field for a 60-yard touchdown. Now imagine Gary Pettis 30 years ago showing similar traits, racing back to the center-field wall and making a home-run-saving catch en route to one of his five Gold Glove awards. “For the longest time, I never thought it could translate over, his hands, from baseball to football,” Dante Pettis said. “I started thinking about it, and it’s just hand-eye coordination. It’s really like being able to watch the ball into your hand or your glove or whatever.” … [Read more...] about Can 49ers Dante Pettis mimic dad’s ‘Gold Glove’ touch?
PYEONGTAEK, South Korea — Decades after the end of the Korean War in 1953, the remains of dozens of presumed U.S. war dead were on their way Wednesday to Hawaii for analysis and identification. The U.S. military believes the bones are those of U.S. servicemen and potentially servicemen from other United Nations member countries who fought alongside the U.S. on behalf of South Korea during the war. U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and the commander of U.S. forces in Asia, Adm. Phil Davidson, were expected to speak at a ceremony marking the arrival of the remains on U.S. soil and the beginning of a long process to identify the bones. North Korea handed over the remains last week. A U.S. military plane made a rare trip into North Korea to retrieve the 55 cases. About 7,700 U.S. soldiers are listed as missing from the 1950-53 Korean War, and about 5,300 of the remains are believed to still be in North Korea. Hanwell Kaakimaka's uncle, John Kaakimaka, is among those who never came home. … [Read more...] about Presumed American remains from Korea War head home
