SPORTLIGHT

Aug. 14

1903–Jim Jeffries knocks out Jim Corbett in the 10th round to retain his world heavyweight title in San Francisco.

1959–The formation of the American Football League is announced in Chicago. Play will begin in 1960 with franchises in six cities with the probability of adding two more teams.

1977–Lanny Wadkins beats Gene Littler on the third hole of sudden death to take the PGA championship.

1977–The New York Cosmos, led by Pele, play before a record crowd of 77,961 at the Meadowlands in East Rutherford, N.J., the most to see a soccer game in the United States. The Cosmos beat the Fort Lauderdale Strikers 8-3 in a NASL quarterfinal playoff game.

1994–Nick Price wins the PGA Championship in record fashion. Price finished at 11-under 269 for 72 holes, six strokes ahead of Corey Pavin. It is the lowest stroke total in an American major championship.

1996–Olympic 800-and 1,500-meter champion Svetlana Masterkova of Russia sets a world record in the women's mile, clocking 4 minutes, 12.56 seconds at the Weltklasse Grand Prix.

1998–Baltimore's Chris Hoiles becomes the ninth major leaguer and first catcher to hit two grand slams in one game against the Cleveland Indians. Hoiles homers in the third inning off Charles Nagy and in the eighth against Ron Villone to lead the Orioles to a 15-3 victory.

2003–The New York blackout forces the evacuation of workers and players from Shea Stadium hours before the game between the Mets and the San Francisco Giants. It's the only Major League Baseball game that was affected by the blackout that stretches from the Northeast to Ohio and Michigan. Elsewhere, two WNBA games are postponed, and Yonkers (N.Y.) Raceway cancels its card.

2009–New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning officially becomes the NFL's highest paid player, signing a six-year extension through 2015. His average salary of $15.3 million starts next season with a $35 million guarantee under terms of the $97 million extension.

2011–Keegan Bradley wins the PGA Championship after staging an amazing comeback to force a three-hole playoff and beat Jason Dufner at Atlanta Athletic Club. Bradley, who trailed by five shots with three holes left, becomes the third player in at least 100 years to win a major championship in his first try.
