CONCORD, N. Bruce Bochy Jersey .C. -- Charlotte Motor Speedway said 10 fans were injured Sunday at the Coca-Cola 600 and three of them were taken to the hospital after a nylon rope supporting a Fox Sports overhead television camera fell from the grandstands and landed on the track surface. CMS vice-president of communications Scott Cooper said after the race that all three fans were treated and released from the hospital. He said he couldnt discuss the nature of their injuries due to privacy laws. Cooper said seven other people were treated with minor cuts and scrapes at the track and released. Fox Sports released a statement Sunday night saying it hasnt determined the cause of the accident and it is suspending use of the camera system indefinitely. "Our immediate concern is with the injured fans," Fox said in the statement. Fox said the camera system consists of three ropes -- a drive rope that moves the camera back and forth, and two guide ropes on either side. Fox said it was the drive rope that failed near the first-turn connection and fell to the track. "The camera itself did not come down because guide ropes acted as designed," Fox said in the statement. "A full investigation is planned, and use of the camera is suspended indefinitely." Fox said it has used the camera system at the Daytona 500, at last weeks NASCAR Sprint All-Star race and other major sporting events. "We certainly regret that the system failure affected tonights event, we apologize to the racers whose cars were damaged, and our immediate concern is for the race fans," Fox said in the statement. "We also offer a sincere thank you to the staff at CMS for attending to the injuries and keeping us informed on this developing situation." The incident occurred on lap 121 of the 400-lap NASCAR Sprint Cup race. The race was delayed for 27 minutes while crews repaired damage to their cars. Kyle Busch, going for a sweep at Charlotte Motor Speedway after winning the Nationwide and Truck series races, was leading when he incurred damage to the right front wheel well of his No. 18 Toyota. Marcos Ambrose and Mark Martin also reported damage. No drivers were injured. The cars were initially brought along pit row as workers cleared the ropes from the track. NASCAR first threw a caution flag before two red flags came out. It eventually allowed the cars to come into the pits, giving crews 15 minutes to work on their cars. During the break, Buschs crew frantically worked to repair a number of problems to the right front wheel well. After completing repairs to the car, the crew slapped high-fives after getting the car back on the track. Busch remained competitive and was running in the top five at the midpoint of the race. But his night ended in frustration when his engine blew up on lap 253. "I commend NASCAR for taking the initiative and letting us repair our damaged cars from the issue we had," Busch said. Busch said he never saw the nylon rope. "I just heard a big thunk on the right-front side tire and thought the right-front tire blew out," Busch said. "Thats how hard it felt... It did have an effect slowing my car down and I could feel it like, Whoa, thats weird. I dont know that anybody has ever seen that. Maybe now we can get rid of that thing." It was more bad luck for Busch, who has never won a Sprint Cup race at Charlotte Motor Speedway and suffered his share of bad luck. Kasey Kahne, who wound up finishing second behind Kevin Harvick, said he thought his eyes were playing tricks on him when he saw something strange on the track. "I have never seen anything like it," Kahne said. "I came off turn four and I saw it wrapped around Kyles car and it hit mine and I thought I had to be seeing things because theres no way there could be a cable on the race track. By the time we got to turn one I saw it again and saw Kyles fender and saw his car go down a little. Thats when I knew I wasnt seeing things."NASCAR said the camera system in question is from CamCat. The CamCat camera system is the product of an Austrian company that does work with many outfits around the world, including the Olympics, NBC and others. The company has been handling sporting events since 2000 and hasnt had any prior known incidents with its cameras. In May of 2000, more than 100 fans were injured outside of the CMS when an 80-foot section of the walkway fell an estimated 25 feet onto a highway below. Fans were crossing the bridge to a parking lot following the completion of the NASCAR All-Star race.

DETROIT -- The Chicago Cubs often were the team to beat in the National League early in the 20th century, rather than the lovable losers they became in the decades that followed.Playing in their third straight World Series, and led by the Tinker-to-Evers-to-Chance double play combination that was immortalized in verse, the Cubs defeated the Detroit Tigers in 1908 for their second championship in a row.The Cubs havent won the title since.Heres the report from The Associated Press on Oct. 14, 1908, when the Cubs won in Detroit 2-0 in Game 5 to clinch the crown.

Cubs pitcher Orval Overall got the win and Wild Bill Donovan the loss.-----By Associated PressDetroit, Oct. 14. -- By defeating Detroit this afternoon 2 to 0, the Chicago team of the National League retained its title as the champion baseball team of the world. The present series differed but little from that of last year. In the previous series Detroit managed to get one tie game and then went down in four straight defeats. In the present series, Detroit snatched one victory out of the five games played.The paid admissions were only, 62,232 for the five games, and the receipts totaled but $94,976, as compared with $101,000 last year.Of the money taken in the players of Chicago, the winning team, get $27,669, and the Detroit players $18,446. The club owners get $19,681 apiece and the national commission $9,947.SCHMIDT REGAINS HIS CUNNINGA feature of the game was Schmidts recovery of his throwing arm, which had not been working well during any previous game. Chicago was not able to steal a base on him for the first time during the series. He caught Steinfeldt trying to steal second by yards: he handled two bunts in clean fashion, retiring his men, at first, and he broke up an attempted double steal by Evers and Chancce. Wholesale Giants Jerseys. Overall for the second time pitched a masterly game. Only three hits were made off him and one of these would have been an easy out had the ball not taken an erratic and unexpected bound as it approached Steinfeldt. He was wild at times, giving four bases on balls, but on the other hand his strike-outs numbered ten. One of the these strike-outs, however, occurred when Rossman made his third swing at a wild pitch, enabling him to reach first safely.Donovan, on the other hand, met with a vigorous reception in the first inning, when three consecutive hits sent Evers over the plate with the first run of the game. With the exception of the fifth inning, when a base on balls, and Evers double gave Chicago another run, Donovan managed to keep the hits scattered. It is probable, however, that Chicago would have run up a large score had it not been for the brilliant work of the Detroit infield. OLearys spectacular catch of Tinkers Texas leaguer far back of second base was a feature of the game.HOW THE RUNS WERE MADEEvers scored Chicagos first run. He singled to center, took second on Schultzs hit to left and raced home on Chances safe drive to center. A base on balls was primarily responsible for Chicagos second and last run. Kling walked on four wide ones, went to second on Overalls sacrifice and scored on Evers double. Detroit threatened to score but once. Coughlin was safe when his grounder took an awkward bound and he went to third, when McIntyre doubled into the left field crowd. But the needed hit was not forthcoming from either OLeary or Crawford, for the former flew out to Hoffman, who held Coughlin at third by a beautiful throw home, and Crawford struck out.---The AP Corporate Archives contributed to this report.
