Giancarlo Stanton puts on show; Olivia Korte is Fox-y

The second home run of the night for Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton against the Cardinals on Monday traveled an estimated 470 feet. It also resulted in free beer for all the fans sitting in the Budweiser Balcony, where the ball landed. Stanton also made this catch in Miami's 6-5 win.

Pacers forward Paul George is switching his jersey number from 24 to 13 next season. This opens the way for a "PG-13" nickname.

The Iowa State Fair is paying tribute to the popular sports movie with a collection of butter statues.

What a performance by this 65-year-old Cubs fan last night. He made a nice catch (although, he had to use a glove) on a home run by Brewers slugger Mark Reynolds. He then quickly switched the home run ball with a generic ball before hurling it back on the field.

It seems we're all still in shock over the news that Robin Williams is no longer with us. The comedian/actor compiled a remarkable resume over his career. My personal favorite Robin Williams movie is "Good Will Hunting" and the scene below, in which the Red Sox play a big role, is as good as it gets. Williams also riffed on sports during many of his stand-up shows, which you can check out in this roundup.
