Many golf balls found in lake

Body

ARCADIA, Mich. (AP) — An exclusive golf course in northern Michigan has changed its website to no longer encourage players to hit balls into Lake Michigan after a diver hired by a newspaper found hundreds in the water.

State environmental regulators said they’re investigating what has occurred at Arcadia Bluffs, where a round of golf on the course overlooking the northeastern shore of the lake costs $215 during the peak summer season. A beverage cart employee said she was fired for discouraging players from hitting balls into the lake.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Mike Trout is back in the Los Angeles Angels lineup after missing the previous three games due to a mildly strained right calf.

The two-time AL MVP will be the designated hitter Thursday when the Angels complete a four-game series against the Houston Astros. He leads the league in home runs (30) and RBIs (75) along with a .305 batting average, which is ninth.

Trout suffered the injury during Sunday’s game against Seattle. Prior to the injury, he had eight home runs in seven games.
