Victor Paez has a simple explanation for why his teams from Mexico have advanced to eight straight championship games at the Cal Ripken World Series. "We love baseball," Paez said through an interpreter, "and we play with passion," Some serious bats haven't hurt, either. A three-run homer by shortstop Luis Urias and a solo shot by first baseman Luis Millan paved the way Sunday for starting pitcher Gerardo Haro, who went the distance, allowing three hits against U.S. champion Ocala, Fla., in a 7-1 win before a record crowd estimated at more than 5,000 at the Ripken Youth Baseball Academy in Aberdeen.

A year ago, Canadian developer Michael Moldenhauer emerged from a meeting of the Maryland slots commission and declared that "our financing is in place" to build a $212 million slots parlor near downtown Baltimore that would be filled with 3,750 beeping, blinking, prize-paying video lottery terminals. That commitment echoed his statements to officials in New Mexico, who chose him two years ago to develop a $50 million racetrack and casino in that state's northeastern corner. So far, the Toronto homebuilder has failed to deliver on his promises in either state, officials say. Repeated delays and blown deadlines have prompted state gambling boards in Maryland and New Mexico to cut ties with him. But Moldenhauer, 44, who brought no gambling industry experience to his bids for licenses in Baltimore and Raton, N.M., is not backing down.

It had never occurred to Michelle Salomon that when she washed her hands, she used more water than some families have access to in a day. The University of Maryland law student had never imagined a world in which constitutional education amounted to one volunteer lecturing under a shade tree to hundreds of people who had never been to school. Salomon, an Olney resident, had long wanted to advocate for human rights. But until she spent last semester at the law school's new clinic in Namibia, she didn't know how desperate and uplifting that struggle could be. "It transformed my life," she says.

There was a time in his life — it turns out, most of his life — when Marco Alva felt like a man without a country. He had become separated by time and distance from Mexico and the culture of his native country, and, while he had married an American and started a family here, he was not yet a citizen of the United States. Sunday morning in Annapolis, the feeling of being adrift went away. On the Fourth of July, Marco Alva became an American. He and 36 other men and women took the oath of citizenship at the annual naturalization ceremony at the William Paca House, home of one of Maryland's signers of the Declaration of Independence.

Three days after lauding the future of Mexican soccer, Javier Aguirre said he wasn't sticking around to be a part of it. He appeared before a packed news conference in Mexico City on Wednesday to announce he was stepping down as coach after El Tri bowed out in the second round for the fifth time in as many tries. "The first person responsible is me. I believe that I have to resign my job," Aguirre said. "It's the most honest solution, the fairest and it's something I have to do."

RUSTENBURG, South Africa — The talk around Mexico's World Cup camp last week was as much about respect as it was about Argentina star Lionel Messi. And for good reason. The Argentines rolled through group play unbeaten while Mexico struggled, losing to Uruguay and tying South Africa. Argentina has won two World Cups; Mexico never has made it past the quarterfinals — and hasn't made it that far in 24 years. Plus Argentina has Messi, the world's best player.

Mexico coach Javier Aguirre wants only positive thoughts going into Tuesday's match with Uruguay. "If we go out there thinking that we can lose the game, fearful and full of doubt, then we're inviting the loss or we're doubting ourselves," he said. "I've impressed on my players that we have to go out there intending to win." A win would not only qualify Mexico for the second round but make its route to the quarterfinals much easier, facing either South Korea or Greece in the knockout round.

If the ageless Cuauhtemoc Blanco has come to represent Mexican soccer's recent past, then the babyfaced Javier Hernandez is the country's immediate future. So it seemed only natural that they should meet in the middle in chilly Polokwane on Thursday to make sure Mexico's present doesn't end prematurely. With both players coming off the bench in the second half to score, Mexico rolled to a 2-0 win over France that all but guarantees El Tri a spot in the World Cup's second round.

Somalia Trumps US Use of Drones On Wednesday a Baltimore Sun article ("Drones may patrol Somalia," March 31) reports that the Pentagon is considering dispatching surveillance drones and other limited military support for a Somali government offensive against al-Qaida linked insurgents. It seems to me that our U.S./Mexico Border could use that service, too. The principle that charity begins at home could be applied. Especially when we probably have enough capacity to handle our needs with drones as well as those of the Somali governament at the same time.
