Cincinnati Reds legend George Foster will replace Hall of Famer Rod Carew as the speaker at tonight’s Schear Family Heart in Sports Community Conversation Series at 7 p.m. at the Dayton Marriott.
Carew, who had a heart transplant in December, was unable to travel after being hospitalized with a slight fever, according to a statement from his office.
“Rod Carew is very sorry as he was really looking forward to appearing at the Dayton Heart Institute. He apologizes for any inconvenience his absence may have caused.”
Foster will talk about his career with the Reds and be joined by legendary Dayton Daily News sports writer Hal McCoy, who was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2002. Foster, a key member of the Big Red Machine team that won back-to-back World Series titles in 1975-76, was inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame in 2003. A five-time All-Star, Foster was the National League MVP in 1977.

For the second straight year, Michigan basketball is heating up at the right time.
The No. 17 Wolverines capped their regular season by steamrolling Maryland, 85-61, on the road Saturday afternoon. It was the fifth win in a row for John Beilein’s team and Michigan’s seventh win in eight games.
No team is going to want to be matched up with Michigan in March.
The Wolverines head into next week’s Big Ten Tournament playing their best basketball of the season. They’ll have a great chance to recreate some of 2017’s March magic.
Michigan improbably ran through the conference tournament last season. The team not only won the tournament as a No. 8 seed with four wins in four days, but it did so days after the team’s plane skidded off the runway as it tried to take off on the way to Washington D.C. After winning four games in the Big Ten Tournament, Michigan rattled off two more wins in the NCAA Tournament, including an upset of second-seeded Louisville, to make the Sweet 16.
The Wolverines will try to defend their conference tournament title next week at Madison Square Garden. They’ll either be the No. 5 or the No. 4 seed depending on what Nebraska does against Penn State on Sunday. And as of Thursday, Michigan was a No. 6 seed in Joe Lunardi’s Bracketology projection.
But if Michigan keeps playing like it has over the last two weeks, it won’t matter much who the team is matched up with in March.

It hasn’t taken long for Willie Taggart to make a positive mark on Florida State football. Through some strong recruiting efforts and an aim to shift the culture of the team, he looks well positioned to bring the program back from what was a disappointing 2017 season under Jimbo Fisher.
One player in particular that has taken notice is Alex Marshall, a 4-star recruit that redshirted last season but could find himself as a key contributor in offensive coordinator Walt Bell’s system in 2018. Marshall, who hasn’t been shy about sharing his thoughts on Twitter on other topics, made his opinion known about the previous staff on Friday following the first week of offseason workouts.
It’s funny that one coaching staff can motivate you to work … shame on the other 🤐
— Alexander Marshall (@A_marshall80) February 23, 2018
That’s quite the indictment on Fisher — who left to sign a 10-year, $75 contract at Texas A&M — and his staff of assistants. While Marshall’s tweet may have made more of a ripple if it came from a upperclassman, it’s still rather interesting to see this level of honesty being expressed.
We’ll see if Taggart’s work pays off this upcoming season. But with the work toward spring football beginning in earnest, it looks like his players are buying in.
