>>Brewers Reliever Williams Named NL Rookie Of The Year

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Brewers first-year reliever Devin Williams has been named the National League Rookie of the Year.  The Baseball Writers Association of America made the announcement Monday afternoon.  The 26-year-old Williams held off Phillies third baseman Alec Bohm and Padres infielder Jake Cronenworth.  Williams allowed just one earned run in 27 innings, striking out exactly half of the 106 batters he faced.  He becomes the first pitcher to ever win Rookie of the Year without making a start or nailing down a save.  Mariners center fielder Kyle Lewis won the American League award.

>>2 Packers Activated From NFL’s COVID-19 Reserve List

(Madison, WI)  —  The Wisconsin Badgers football team began regular game week preparations Monday and they are scheduled to practice each day all week.  Program officials reported the list of active COVID-19 cases is down to five – two players and three staff members.  That means there’s a good chance the Badgers will make the trip to Ann Arbor this weekend to play against the Michigan Wolverines.  There have been only two positive test results over the last seven days, including one player.  Athletic Director Barry Alvarez says the school is confident it has a handle on the situation, but it will continue to monitor testing results.
