SEATTLE (AP) — Nearly two years ago, Amanda Hopkins' phone rang. It was a call she dreamt of receiving, one that broke barriers and made her a part of baseball history. Almost immediately, her competitiveness took over. "She put a sign up on her bedroom door saying, 'Stay out, we're opponents,'" recalled her father, Ron Hopkins, a special assistant to the general manager for the Pittsburgh Pirates. "In other words, my bedroom is off limits to you, there is info in here. I got a kick out of it." The 24-year-old Hopkins is now about to complete her second year as an area scout for the Seattle Mariners.

Angolans lined up at the polls on Wednesday in an election where the defense minister seems to be the front-runner to succeed longtime President Jose Eduardo dos Santos after 38 years in power of the oil-rich country that's been marred by rampant poverty and corruption, according to The Associated Press. Close to 9.3 million Angolans are registered to vote for the 220-member National Assembly, with the winning party also getting the choice to select the next president. Dos Santos' hand-picked successor is Joao Lourenco, the defense minister and a former governor who fought in the war against colonial rule under Portugal and the long civil war that ended in 2002.

ESPN FC's Stuart Holden and Shaka Hislop discuss the latest decision made by FIFA that will see the first winter World Cup final set for Dec. 18 in Qatar. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said it makes sense to hold the 2022 Qatar World Cup in the winter months, but admitted it will have an impact on European league schedules. Qatar World Cup organisers have presented plans for the 40,000-seat Al Thumama Stadium that will be used in 2022. The design by Qatari architect Ibrahim M. Jaidah is based on the "gahfiya" skullcap worn under the gutra, or male headscarf, in the Gulf. It is one of the seven stadiums currently being built for the tournament in the Gulf nation in five years. Al Thumama Stadium, in the Doha suburb of Al Thumama, is due to be finished in 2020 and will be used for matches up to the quarterfinals in 2022. "This...
