National Sports Briefs: Reynolds, Gordon, Stephens on ballot

Associated Press
COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. ó Allie Reynolds, Joe Gordon and Vern Stephens are among 10 players whose careers began before 1943 who will be considered by the Hall of Fame’s constituted Veterans Committee when it meets on Dec. 7 .
Bill Dahlen, Wes Ferrell, Sherry Magee, Carl Mays, Mickey Vernon, Bucky Walters and Deacon White also will be on the ballot, the Hall said Monday. The 10 finalists were selected by a committee of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America that considered pre-1943 players. A 12-member committee of Hall of Famers, media and historians will vote.
Players must appear on 75 percent of the ballots to gain election. Results will be announced Dec. 8 at the winter meetings in Las Vegas, and anyone elected will be inducted July 26.
The next vote for pre-1943 players will take place in 2013.
– SAN FRANCISCOó Barry Bonds is asking a federal judge to throw out most of the government’s perjury case against him that charges he lied to a federal grand jury about his alleged steroids use.
Bonds was indicted last November on charges he lied when he told a grand jury in 2003 he didn’t knowingly use performance-enhancing drugs. He is charged with 14 counts of making false declarations to a grand jury and one count of obstruction of justice.
NBA
MEADVILLE, Pa. ó A northwestern Pennsylvania woman who claims Michael Jordan fathered her son is out of jail after agreeing not to bother Jordan.
A Crawford County judge released 35-year-old Lisa Miceli, of Meadville, on Friday. She was jailed Aug. 13 for violating an order in civil suit Jordan filed against her in January.
The order enforces a 2005 agreement stopping her from contacting him or those close to him after two DNA tests showed he wasn’t the boy’s father.
A judge found Miceli sent messages to Jordan’s lawyer after the order was issued.
– DALLAS ó The Dallas Mavericks re-signed forward Devean George on Monday, nearly six months after the veteran player blocked a trade to the New Jersey Nets.
George played his first seven seasons for the Los Angeles Lakers before signing with the Mavericks in 2006.
NHL
CHICAGOó The Chicago Blackhawks signed 19-year-old right wing Akim Aliu, the 56th overall pick in the 2007 draft, to a three-year contract on Monday.
– PHILADELPHIA ó Veteran NHL defenseman Bryan Berard will attempt to make an NHL club on a tryout contract, after being invited to training camp with the Philadelphia Flyers.
SUPER BOWL THREAT
PHOENIX ó A Phoenix judge delayed the sentencing for a man accused of planning to kill people at this year’s Super Bowl, saying Monday she wanted him to undergo a psychological evaluation first.
U.S. District Judge Roslyn Silver said Kurt William Havelock’s behavior earlier this year was uncharacteristic for him and did not want to sentence him before seeing the results of an evaluation.
“(Havelock’s behavior) is shocking and there must be some type of psychological testing,” Silver said.
