    SHRINE BOWL-COACHES

     NEW YORK (AP) - Assistant coaches Sam Mills III of the Carolina Panthers and Adam Zimmer of the Minnesota Vikings will be the head coaches of the East-West Shrine Game, which features some of college football's best prospects.
 
     The 94th annual East-West Shrine Game will be played Saturday, Jan. 19, at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, and be televised on NFL Network.
 
     Mills, who will coach the East team, has spent the past 14 seasons on the Panthers' staff. He was promoted to defensive line coach in December. A Division II All-American linebacker at Montclair State, Mills is the son of Sam Mills, the former Panthers linebacker who is the only player in franchise history whose number was retired.
 
     Zimmer, who will coach the West team, is a 13-year coaching veteran who has spent the past five seasons as the Vikings' linebackers coach. A former safety at Trinity University, Adam is the son of Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer.

    MINNESOTA TWINS-MAUER

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Twins have set the date for retiring Joe Mauer's No. 7 jersey. The Twins announced today that Mauer's number will be retired in a pregame ceremony at Target Field on "Joe Mauer Day" on Saturday, June 15. The event will take place before the Twins' 6:10 p.m. game against Kansas City. More details will be announced later.
 
     Mauer, a six-time All-Star, retired after a 15-year major league career, all with the Twins. The Twins earlier announced plans to retire Mauer's number.
 
     Mauer will become the eighth former Twins player or manager with a retired number, joining Harmon Killebrew (3), Rod Carew (29), Tony Oliva (6), Kent Hrbek (14), Kirby Puckett (34), Bert Blyleven (28) and Tom Kelly (10). Jackie Robinson (42) has had his number retired by all major league teams.

     COLLEGE FOOTBALL-CLEMSON
 
     SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - The Clemson flag is flying over the South Carolina State House after the Tigers' national championship win over Alabama. The flag was also atop the capital's dome two years back when Clemson won the crown. Clemson will have a parade and fan celebration at campus and the football stadium Saturday.
 
     The state has traditionally flown school flags to celebrate national title teams. The South Carolina college flag flew after the school's two College World Series wins in 2010 and 2011, and women's basketball's NCAA Tournament title in 2017. The Coastal Carolina flag flew over the capital after winning the College World Series in 2016.

     MLB-WHITE SOX-HERRERA
 
     CHICAGO (AP) - Two-time All-Star reliever Kelvin Herrera and the Chicago White Sox have finalized an $18 million, two-year contract. Herrera will earn $8.5 million in each of the next two years as part of the deal announced Tuesday, and the White Sox have a $10 million option for 2021 with a $1 million buyout.
 
     Herrera was part of a dominant bullpen that helped Kansas City win back-to-back pennants and the 2015 World Series.
 
     The 29-year-old right-hander has a 2.82 ERA and 60 saves over eight seasons with the Royals and Washington. He had a 2.44 ERA with 17 saves in 48 games last year for Kansas City and the Nationals, who acquired him on June 18. Herrera did not pitch after Aug. 26 because of a broken left foot.
 
     Chicago is coming off its sixth straight losing season, finishing fourth in the AL Central at 62-100 last year. The White Sox acquired former Tampa Bay closer Alex Colome in a trade with Seattle in November. They also got first baseman and designated hitter Yonder Alonso from Cleveland last month.

     MLB-SPENDING DROP
 
     NEW YORK (AP) - Spending on Major League Baseball payrolls dropped last season for the first time since 2010, a decline attributable to drug and domestic violence suspensions and a player retiring at midseason. That's according to figures compiled by the commissioner's office and obtained by The Associated Press.
 
     Even a year with flat payrolls is unusual. The only previous drops since 2002 were by $3 million in 2010 and by $32 million in 2004. Teams combined to spend $4.23 billion on major league payroll last year, down $18 million.
 
     World Series champion Boston had the highest payroll for the first time since the free-agent era started in 1976 at $230 million. A record 24 teams had $100 million payrolls, and the Red Sox figure was the lowest for the top payroll since 2012.

The 47-year-old Irishman has served as vice-captain for the past three Ryder Cups, most recently under Thomas Bjorn last year when Europe regained the trophy outside Paris.
