Boone back in dugout
New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone returned to the dugout, three days after surgery to have a pacemaker inserted. Boone, who turns 48 in a few days, left the club Wednesday to get the pacemaker at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa. He returned to camp Saturday after clearing COVID-19 protocols and said he feels great.
• Katie Ledecky won the 800-meter freestyle in San Antonio for her fourth title in her first national competition in a year because of the coronavirus pandemic. Her winning time of 8 minutes, 13.64 seconds at the TYR Pro Swim Series was a whopping 12.3 seconds ahead of Leah Smith, who touched in 8:25.67. Ledecky also won the 200, 400 and 1,500 freestyles over the four-day meet. She will attempt all four events in Tokyo, and likely some relays, too.
