Bode Miller signs one-game minor league baseball deal
Downhill skier Bode Miller, who won two silver medals at the Salt Lake City Olympics in 2002 but was shut out in a disappointing showing in the Torino Games this year, has signed a one-game contract to play for the Nashua (N.H.) Pride of the independent CanAm League.

Miller, a native of Franconia, N.H., will play July 29 for the Pride in a home game against the Brockton (Mass.) Rox. The team did not say what position Miller would play.

The team said it will donate at least $5,000 from ticket sales for the game to Miller's Turtle Ridge Foundation, which will give the money to the Lance Armstrong Foundation.
