SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea’s professional baseball league is starting its new season without fans in the stands on Tuesday, while the pro soccer league will kick off under similar conditions on Friday. That’s because the country reported its lowest daily increase in coronavirus cases since Feb. 18, continuing a downward trend as the country restarts professional sports and prepares to reopen schools. ESPN will air some of the games.

MIAMI (AP) — Measuring Don Shula by wins and losses, no NFL coach had a better year. Miami Dolphin team officials say Shula died at his home on Monday. He was 90. Shula led the Dolphins to the only perfect season in NFL history, set a league record with 347 victories and coached in six Super Bowls. Shula reached the playoffs in four decades and coached three Hall of Fame quarterbacks: Johnny Unitas (yoo-NY’-tuhs), Bob Griese (GREE’-see) and Dan Marino.

UNDATED (AP) — Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh and his wife, Sarah, are donating $100,000 to United Way for Southeastern Michigan to support its COVID-19 community response fund.

MADRID (AP) — Novak Djokovic (NOH’-vak JOH’-kuh-vich) apparently has broken confinement rules in Spain by going back to a tennis court. Djokovic has posted a video on Instagram showing him exchanging shots with another man at a tennis club in the coastal city of Marbella. Spain on Monday loosened some of the lockdown measures that had been in place since mid-March because of the coronavirus pandemic, but sports facilities are supposed to remain closed at least until next week in most parts of the country. The Spanish tennis federation has said professional players in Spain can exercise by themselves or with a coach, but not yet on a tennis court. 

UNDATED (AP) — Live golf will return to television later this month. Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson headline a $3 million charity match on May 17. They will be partners against Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff in a skins match called “TaylorMade Driving Relief.” All the money goes to COVID-19 relief. McIlroy and Johnson will be playing for the American Nurses Foundation, while the Oklahoma State alumni team will be playing for the CDC Foundation. The match will be played at Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach, Florida.
