Scott Clarke/ESPN Images(CHICAGO) -- The Chicago White Sox will honor former pitcher Mark Buehrle by retiring his jersey number this summer.

The left-handed hurler won 161 games on Chicago's South Side, throwing a no-hitter and a perfect game in the progress. He also helped lead the White Sox to the 2005 World Series, their first in 88 years.

"You know he's one of the best that has ever put on a White Sox uniform," General Manager Kenny Williams said Thursday. "He represented the organization in a first-class, fun way. The next person you meet that says that Mark Buehrle wasn't a good teammate or wasn't a top notch pitcher and person will be the first you meet that says those things."

Buehrle will join 11 other White Sox who have had their numbers retired, including former teammates Frank Thomas and Paul Konerko.

The lefty spent 12 of his 16 seasons in Chicago, ranking among the franchise's all-time leaders in strikeouts, starts, wins, innings pitched and games pitched.

Phil Ellsworth/ESPN Images(TAMPA BAY, Fla.) – Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston says he made a “poor word choice” while talking to third and fourth grade students in St.Petersburg Florida.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, Winston asked the male students to stand and the females to sit. The NFL quarterback said, "But all my boys, stand up. We strong, right? We strong! We strong, right? All my boys, tell me one time: I can do anything I put my mind to. Now, a lot of boys aren't supposed to be soft-spoken. You know what I'm saying? One day y'all are going to have a very deep voice like this [in deep voice]. One day, you'll have a very, very deep voice.”

"But the ladies, they're supposed to be silent, polite, gentle. My men, my men [are] supposed to be strong. I want y'all to tell me what the third rule of life is: I can do anything I put my mind to" 

Later, Winston said he was trying to motivate a particular student without calling him out.

The former Florida State student-athlete has worked to rebuild his public image after being accused of sexually assaulting a female student at the school in 2012.

Winston was never charged or disciplined by the university. In December, he settled a federal lawsuit filed by the woman.

Joe Faraoni / ESPN Images(WASHINGTON) -- Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps will be among one of the witnesses that will testify before Congress next week when the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations holds a hearing on the international anti-doping system.

According to a press release Thursday from the panel, the subcommittee will "examine the current state of the international anti-doping system, challenges it faces, and ways it can be improved."

Joining 23-time Olympic gold medalist Phelps on the confirmed witness list is Olympic shot putter Adam Nelson, United States Anti-Doping Agency CEO Travis Tygart, World Anti-Doping Agency deputy director general Rob Koehler, and International Olympic Committee medical and scientific director Dr. Richard Budgett.

Joe Faraoni/ESPN Images(BOSTON) -- Tom Brady's Super Bowl jersey went missing from his locker after the New England Patriots' Super Bowl 51 victory.

It has an estimated value of $500,000, according to a complaint filed with the Houston Police Department.

The quarter back is hoping to track down the jersey himself, posting a parody "suspect board" on his Facebook page, naming some of interesting "culprits."

Brady pointed the finger at numerous characters like Swiper the racoon from the children's show Dora the Explorer and the shark Jaws.

Brady also named half time performer Lady Gaga and Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman as possible suspects, calling his teammate a "sneaky little squirrel."

News of the missing jersey first surfaced when Brady told team owner Robert Kraft in an on-camera locker room conversation after the game that he was unable to locate the jersey he wore as he led the team to the 34-28 overtime win on Feb. 5

Police have classified the case as a possible first-degree felony.
