Dan Hammer's plan is to continue his baseball career at the University of Pittsburgh. That could change if a major-league organization thinks enough of the Father Judge pitcher to select him in the first-year player draft in June and make an irresistible financial offer. Crusaders first-year manager Kenny Devenney said scouts from the Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, and Kansas City Royals have been keeping tabs on the hard-throwing senior righthander. For now, Hammer, also a shortstop, is focused on trying to help lead Judge to its first Catholic League title since 2000.

LET'S TAKE a peek at the race for attorney general. It's overshadowed by contests for president and U.S. Senate. But it offers insights into Pennsylvania's geopolitics and Philadelphia's clout. Also, it's about an office that's both stepping-stone and banana peel. Of the five elected A.G.s since 1980 (previously, the post was appointed), three ran for governor (Ernie Preate, Mike Fisher, and Tom Corbett); one, Corbett, became governor; and two were charged with crimes. Preate went to prison; current A.G. Kathleen Kane awaits trial.

You know that horrible moment when you ask a woman when the baby is due and she gives you the fisheye and replies, "I'm not pregnant. " Glamour magazine sort of did that to Amy Schumer with its new list of stars who are "Chic At Any Size. " Amy doesn't see herself as a "plus size" gal - because she isn't. She wrote on Instagram: "I think there's nothing wrong with being plus size. Beautiful healthy women. Plus size is considered size 16 in America. I go between a size 6 and an 8. " Schumer is also annoyed because she feels the magazine's message is bad for young women, the issue reprinted a Q&A Schumer did for the mag last year and Glamour never told Schumer they were re-running the interview, or that they now considered her a, er, heavy woman.

By his own admission, Jim Norton has a hard time meeting folks who share his interests. But when those interests include illicit massage parlors, urolagnia, and transgender prostitutes, maybe some difficulty is to be expected. "It's very common to not have the same interests as Jim Norton," the stand-up comedian said during recent phone interview. "A lot of people don't have the same interests as me. " They do, however, seem to like watching him do stand-up. Norton, a New Jersey native, started as a comic in 1990 and quickly became known for his politically incorrect humor.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Could the Eagles draft Ezekiel Elliott with the eighth pick overall in April's draft? Howie Roseman wants the rest of the NFL to think so, or so it would seem. The Eagles vice president of football operations never mentioned the Ohio State product by name on Monday, but it was clear he was referencing Elliott when asked about the value of selecting a running back early in the draft. "There's this narrative that you can get running backs in the fifth, sixth, seventh round and undrafted free agency," Roseman said at the league meetings.
