WAIANAE, Hawaii -- The home sits on property with a million-dollar view, but its plastic roof is held down by bungee cords, its only source of lighting is a few crude lanterns, its floor is covered with sand. From here, Bert Bustamante looks out on paradise. Each evening, the sunset turns the Pacific Ocean several shades of pink and orange, turquoise and glowing blue. The dolphins come, and the whales, sometimes the seals. Bustamante's children surf and swim; his son goes out with spear and net and brings home fish and octopus and squid for dinner.

Best-laid plans rarely become reality in youth championship games, but for Oahu, Hawaii, manager Gerald Oda, his coaching staff and players, dreams do come true. Mexico's three-year, 20-game winning streak and two titles came to a slow end yesterday as three Oahu pitchers used a lot of slow breaking stuff to strike out 15 batters and edge Mexico, 1-0, in the Cal Ripken 12-and-under World Series final in Aberdeen. The title game was played before more than 5,000 at Cal Sr.'s Yard. Oda played all 14 of his players and used all three of the pitchers who got his team there and won. "I made a promise to our kids that this would be an experience none of them would ever forget," Oda said.

Cal Ripken Sr. would have been proud. Yesterday's single-elimination playoffs in the Cal Ripken 12-and-Under World Series in Aberdeen were full of sound, fundamental baseball, the "Ripken way."

Kailua, Hawaii--Led by irrepressible 6-year-old Lilia, we race the setting sun along a winding dirt path up the hillside known as Lanikai Ridge. Beneath us, the turquoise ocean stretches beyond a crescent-shaped beach -- the cradle for the sport of windsurfing. Kayakers paddle back from the offshore Mokulua islands. We scan the horizon for the spout of humpback whales.Behind us lies the bedroom community of Kailua. Looming over the homes and Enchanted Lake is Mount Olomana, the stately peak that, legend has it, once was a giant who jumped from Kauai.

KAILUA, OAHU, HAWAII // Taking the rise, I am struck by the scene unfolding to my right: the Pacific Ocean -- today flat and aquamarine a mile to the sheltering reef -- seems welded without a seam to the morning sky. It glistens in sunlight as it washes onto the sand, which stretches in turn more than two miles in a graceful palm-fringed arc from Kailua Beach Park to the crocodilian promontory of the Kaneohe Marine Corps Base, now peaceful, but the target...

When it started raining just before the scheduled start of yesterday's U.S. championship game in the Cal Ripken 12-and-Under World Series in Aberdeen, Raleigh, N.C., had reason to believe it was an omen in its favor. And, indeed, Raleigh won easily, 8-1, over defending U.S. champion Oahu, Hawaii, after a nearly one-hour delay. It had rained before Raleigh's district and state championship games, and there was a two-hour delay before the start of its 11-1 Southeast Region final romp over Virginia in Lakeland, Fla., that qualified the team for Aberdeen.

Jarrett Arakawa of Oahu, Hawaii, has revealed the secret to his pitching the gem of the Cal Ripken World Series thus far in Aberdeen. "I always sprinkle a little Hawaiian salt on my pitching hand before I go out there," said Arakawa, a left-hander. "It's good luck." After salting up with the legal substance, Arakawa went out Sunday and pitched a three-hitter with a tournament-high 13 strikeouts and no walks in a 1-0 victory over Pine Bluff, Ark. Arakawa struck out his first six batters and got the win when his team scored off Claude Johnson in the bottom of the sixth.
