PITTSBURGH (AP) -- The Minnesota Twins have traded Justin Morneau to the Pittsburgh Pirates, sending the veteran first baseman to a playoff-contending team for the final month of the season.

The deal was done on Saturday before the deadline. The Twins obtained outfielder Alex Presley and either a player to be named or cash.

Morneau is in the final year of his contract, making $14 million. He has been with the Twins for 11 seasons, winning the American League MVP award in 2006 and becoming one of the best hitters in the game until a concussion knocked him out of action in 2010. His production hasn't been the same since.

Morneau batted .259 with 32 doubles, 17 home runs and 74 RBIs for the Twins this year in 495 at-bats.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — When traffic flows across the new stretch of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge for the first time, it will do so nearly a quarter-century after a deadly earthquake during the 1989 World Series collapsed two 50-foot sections of the old structure.

The 6.9-magnitude Loma Prieta quake hit just as millions tuned in to watch Game 3 of the "Bay Bridge World Series" between the Oakland Athletics and San Francisco Giants, killing 63 people and causing billions in damage.

The Bay Bridge failure prompted one of the costliest public works projects in state history.

Next week, the $6.4 billion project finally opens to traffic after decades of political bickering, engineering challenges and billions in cost overruns. The new bridge is scheduled to open by 5 a.m. Tuesday at the latest.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The upcoming fall high school football season will include a St. Louis County home-school squad.

The 14-member Central Panthers practice at Rockport Baptist Church in Arnold and compete on the junior varsity level in their first season. They're led by a pastor-coach who was a 51-year-old backup middle linebacker at Westminster College in Fulton while earning his master's degree in theology.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the new Mid-East Missouri Homeschool Football Association hopes to add to at least two more teams with players from O'Fallon, Wentzville and St. Charles to the north, and Jackson and Cape Girardeau (juh-RAHR'-doh) in the south, as well as a Central varsity team next year.

The Missouri State High School Activities Association voted in 2012 to allow its members to play home-school teams.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Octogenarian protesters joined fresh-faced climate change activists Friday to recall and re-enact a series of civil rights demonstrations that changed hiring practices in St. Louis and paved the way toward greater equality for blacks.

Several of the 19 original marchers jailed for defying a judge's order against disrupting business at Jefferson Bank and Trust Company returned to mark the 50-year anniversary of protests that began on August 30th, 1963 and escalated into near daily demonstrations outside the city jail.

The group of community leaders, civic organizers and Washington University students convinced the bank and hundreds of other city businesses to hire more African-Americans as tellers and in other office jobs.

Participants were scheduled to gather Friday night at the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park, which sponsored several anniversary events.
