Katrina Marinelli swung for the fences and got all ball. "Nice hit," said a teammate. It wasn't really a hit. The 12-year-old Roland Park girl was hitting a softball off a tee into a net during practice, as the Rams, a newly formed girls softball team at Roland Park Elementary/Middle School, prepared for an April 8 away game against Dumbarton Middle School in Rodgers Forge. Coaches and parents who organized the team say it's the first girls softball team at the school in many years, if not ever, and a rarity in the budget-conscious Baltimore Public School System, where middle school softball is considered a luxury.

It was pushing 90 degrees and the second game of a big series against the New York Yankees was just a few hours away, but an important chunk of the Orioles roster was sweating in the noonday sun on a humble ballfield at Radecke Park. Adam Jones and Manny Machado put a hundred or so kids through a double play drill on one of the infields. Former Orioles Al Bumbry and Bill Swaggerty worked with another group nearby. Shortstop J.J. Hardy and fiance Adrienne Acton were across the street with Jones' girlfriend Audie Fugett giving hitting tips to a large group of teenage softball players.

Sponsors of girls softball and boys football leagues want to keep field lights on later at Jaycees Municipal Park in Westminster, a move they hope won't be controversial with neighbors.Residents near the park on Johahn Drive protested last year that the lights were so bright that they didn't need to turn on lamps inside their homes. In response, city government spent about $3,520 to install 16 light shields and about $5,000 for pine trees to reduce noise and screen the fields.The Westminster Jaycees Girls Softball League asked the city parks board Wednesday night to recommend later hours for the lights in 1996 so the league can accommodate all the girls who want to play in a growing program.

John Moore works tough hours - 2 a.m. to 2 p.m. four days a week driving a delivery truck for Stroehmann Bakeries. The Glen Burnie resident often goes to bed no later than 8 p.m. so he can awaken by 1 a.m. and get to work in the middle of the night. He has done that for about 18 years. Still, at 58, Moore makes room for baseball and softball - at least 20 hours a week. He's in his 25th year as president of the Glen Burnie Boys Baseball League Inc., which also operates the Glen Burnie Girls Softball League.

THURSDAY, girls from two fast-pitch softball teams worked out in the small gymnasium at Waterloo Elementary School. Fathers threw balls with their teen-age daughters, who play for the Elkridge Youth Organization. The men threw and caught the balls with an easy rhythm learned from years of play. Their daughters looked focused, fit and strong. In the back of the gym, Ellicott City resident Brad Jones, 43, demonstrated to Kristin Gormus, 15, how to step into a pitch. Kristin wound her arm and windmill-pitched the ball to the other side of the gym with tremendous force.
