  • TORONTO - Toronto Rock general manager Terry Sanderson died from the effects of a heart attack that he suffered while on vacation in Florida earlier this month, the National Lacrosse League team said Friday. Sanderson, the patriarch of a successful Canadian lacrosse-playing family and a former player, coach and executive for several NLL teams, died Thursday. He was 62. In a statement, Rock owner and president Jamie Dawick said the organization was extremely saddened by Sandersons passing. T, as he was best known to everyone, was with me since Day 1 with the franchise after I bought the team in the summer of 2009, Dawick said. I learned a lot from T, not only about the game he loved so much, but also about loyalty and respect, something T showed in spades to his players. He formed the foundation of how the Toronto Rock operate and build a team and its the legacy that he will leave behind for us as we move forward. There will never be another like Terry Sanderson, rest in peace my friend. Sanderson, a native of Orangeville, Ont., took a leave of absence on Nov. 13 after he fell ill. Dawick became interim GM to allow Sanderson to focus on recovery. Sanderson was surrounded by family members when he died Thursday in Florida, the team said. Terry Sanderson was a giant in the sport, NLL commissioner George Daniel said in a statement. On behalf of the entire NLL, I want to convey our deepest sympathies to the Sanderson family and Toronto Rock organization. The impact of his loss is immeasurable. We are all truly saddened by this news. Sanderson, who played in the original NLL for Syracuse (1974) and Quebec (1975), began his NLL coaching career in 2000 with the Albany Attack. He also served as a coach at various levels in Calgary, Toronto, Philadelphia, Montreal and Ottawa. He was GM of the Rock when he won his first Champions Cup in 2005. Sandersons son Josh Sanderson and nephew Phil Sanderson were on the championship team. In 2009, Sanderson won another league title as a coach with the Calgary Roughnecks. He later returned to Toronto and guided the Rock to a Champions Cup in 2011 as GM and assistant coach. It is with heavy hearts the Calgary Roughnecks send condolences to the family of Terry Sanderson, the team said in a statement. We are deeply saddened to receive the news of the passing of one of lacrosse’s most respected individuals. Terry’s contributions as a player, coach and executive, from the grassroots level to the professional level, were immeasurable. He will be greatly missed by the entire lacrosse community and forever be etched in Roughneck history as a member of the coaching staff of the 2009 championship team. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of his family during this difficult period.” Funeral arrangements werent immediately released. Karl-Anthony Towns Timberwolves Jersey .

LOUIS -- Casey McGehee didnt have to wait long to get another shot against Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal with a game on the line. Just a few hours. The Miami Marlins cleanup hitter grounded into a game-ending double play in a one-run loss Friday night. He wasnt thinking about instant redemption before getting the key two-out hit in a ninth-inning rally of a 6-5 victory on Saturday. "A lot of times you dont ever get it," McGehee said. "Youve got to be OK with the fact that those guys, theyre going to get you some times -- more times than not. "You cant go up there with that in your mind, but when you are able to get a hit like that it definitely feels good." Rosenthal called it a "tough at-bat against a good hitter, and he won the battle." McGehee fouled off five full-count pitches before lining a long game-tying single. He took second on the throw home, then beat the relay to the plate on pinch hitter Jeff Bakers go-ahead hit off Sam Freeman. "I was going, I had to take a chance right there," McGehee said. "Im not blessed with the greatest speed in the world. I was just trying to get there as quick as I could." Donovan Solano was running from first on McGehees hit and just beat a relay that catcher Yadier Molina couldnt quite handle. The Marlins also scored two runs off Rosenthal in the series opener but fell short in a 3-2 loss. Christian Yelichs three-run homer off Seth Maness in the sixth began Miamis comeback from a four-run deficit that snapped the Cardinals three-game winning streak. "You always feel bad letting down the team, but its part of the game," Rosenthal said. "No ones perfect. So Ill go out there again and try to do my best." Mike Dunn (6-4) worked a scoreless eighth and Steve Cishek finished for his 19th save in 21 chances. Allen Craig and Jhonny Peralta homered on consecutive at-bats against Andrew Heaney in a four-run fourth inning that put the Cardinals up 5-1. Rosenthal has four blown saves in 30 chances. The Cardinals entered with 49 homers, tied with the cross-state Royals for fewest in the majors, and hit back-to-back homers for the first time this season. Craigs two-run shot wwas his first since May 29 and came after two days on the bench, and two pitches later Peralta hit his team-leading 13th just inside the foul pole in left.dddddddddddd Shelby Miller needed 107 pitches to work 5 1-3 innings and was charged with three runs on nine hits. Miller saved a run that kept it tied at 1 in the fourth, bare-handing Heaneys two-out safety squeeze bunt and diving as he flipped the ball to the plate in time to tag Marcell Ozuna. Crew chief Tim Welke denied the Marlins appeals that Ozuna had been safe and that there had been obstruction at plate. Heaney gave up five runs on eight hits in 3 2-3 innings, the worst of his four career starts. He faced 23 hitters and 12 reached safely. The Marlins nicked Miller for a run on three singles in the first with McGehee getting the RBI and extending his hitting streak to 12 games, a career best. The Cardinals tied it on a hit batter, walk and Molinas single in the bottom half. St. Louis stranded two in the first when Jon Jay took a called third strike and Allen Craig, making his first start in three games, grounded out with the bases loaded to end the second. After the game the Marlins activated shortstop Adeiny Hechavvia (triceps strain) from the 15-day disabled list after the game and manager Mike Redmond anticipated hed play in the series finale Sunday. Heaney and outfielder Jake Marisnick were optioned to Triple-A New Orleans and Tom Koehler was activated from paternity leave ahead of Mondays scheduled start at Arizona. The Marlins had discussed skipping Heaneys next turn and Redmond noted the lefty was at Class A last year. "We want to make sure hes confident and right," Redmond said. "Your game has got to be tight." NOTES: Holliday was taken out after the eighth with a bruised left knee and was day to day. ...
