Hard luck should be Jason White's middle name.The former two-year All-County pitcher/first baseman at Chesapeake has had more than his share of misfortune the past couple of years. His most recent setback has him in North Arundel Hospital, where he underwent an operation to remove his appendix on Monday.Unfortunately for the 18-year-old left-hander, he won't be pitching or playing anymore this summer.In the final two years of his high school career at Chesapeake, White often pitched well enough to win against the top teams, such as Arundel and Old Mill, but his teammates often didn't score runs when he pitched.

And then there was one.Westminster will not field a team in the American Legion's Western Maryland District this season, leaving Mount Airy Post 191 as the only Carroll team remaining in the baseball league for players ages 16 to 18.Randy Biden, who coached the squad from 1987 until last year, said there were insufficient players to form the team this season.Legion officials said the lack of players also was responsible for the breakup of Taneytown's Legion team two years ago and the failure of Sykesville's post to start its own team around the same time.

It seems that Francis Scott Key middle infielder Dave Johnson can do no wrong these days.He's batting .474, has been moved into the No. 3 hitting position by coach Bob Caples, steals bases and plays superb defense at second base or shortstop.Johnson (5-foot-9, 141 pounds) is doing all he can to help the Eagles live up to early-season expectations.But it hasn't been easy with most of the other Key players off to sluggish starts."Dave Johnson and Dan Stephenson [pitcher and cleanup hitter] are carrying us," said Caples, whose team is off to a disappointing 2-4 start.
