Examples of proximity in a Sentence

  1. Chris Woodward:

    Manager Chris Woodward still lives in Arizona, where Manager Chris Woodward was already talking about 105-degree temperatures last week when expressing Manager Chris Woodward preference for workouts in Texas. Being in Texas instead of Arizona would eliminate the close proximity to some other teams to play additional spring training games before the season. The Rangers would have to depend primarily on intrasquad games to get prepared for the season. This year is obviously different from any other year. Our guys know that, and Ive talked to them at length about that. So anything we do is going to not be normal.

  2. Ray Buford:

    HUNDREDS OF GYMNASTS ACROSS US ALLEGE SEXUAL ABUSE, INVESTIGATION REVEALS Buford, Hardin, Dior Johnson and Tamarion Johnson weresuspended earlier this seasonfor violating team rules after a woman accused them of sexual assault. No criminal charges were ever filed and the players were then reinstated. But the woman went to court andtook out restraining ordersbarring the athletes from TCF Bank Stadium. Both sides eventually reached an agreement after the woman testified, detailing a graphic encounter with multiple players. These latest indefinite suspensions are a result of an internal University of Minnesota investigation into the allegations, conducted by the Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action. Some of the 10 Gophers players are facing not just team suspensions but expulsion from the university. Buford's father said his understanding is that the number of players grew to double digits because of their proximity to what allegedly happened during the alleged sexual assault. He insists his son will continue tofight. If you can be tried for the same thing -- this is like the 4th different entity -- the more you go at something, the better the successrateis.
