Getting it right 80 percent of the time is pretty impressive, especially when that average is over the span of 26 years. It's especially impressive if that percentage reflects an athletic team's ability to win under a particular coach. In her 26 years of coaching field hockey at Fallston High School, Alice Puckett amassed a winning record of right around 80 percent, a number that's even more impressive when the percentage of losses is at around 15 percent (the rest were ties). She retired from coaching four years ago because she wanted to attend all of her daughter's college field hockey games.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Kirby Puckett is becoming a stranger in his own clubhouse. Every spring it gets harder to find a familiar face. Every year is a rebuilding year as the small-market Minnesota Twins try to find their way around in baseball's new economic world.The Twins used to be a nonstop fraternity party, and they had fun, fun, fun until Carl Pohlad took the payroll away. Now, nearly all of the players who took part in the club's surprising World Series championships in 1987 and 1991 are gone and Puckett is pondering an uncertain future.

He wasn't kidding either.

Fallston field hockey coach Alice Puckett, who guided the Cougars to 11 state championships in 26 years, has stepped down so she can watch her daughter Lindsey play at Maryland for the next four years. "I knew last summer [2007] when Lindsey made the decision to play hockey in college that I wanted to be able to go to the games. That's the bottom line," said Puckett, who told her players Monday night at their season-ending dinner that she would retire. Puckett, one of the most successful coaches in state history in any sport, guided the Cougars to their second straight state Class 3A championship, a 19-1 record and the No. 2 ranking this past fall.

For all the technical wizardry and baseball intelligence ESPN placed on display in its first playoff telecast yesterday, the star of the show was a lovable retired outfielder named Kirby Puckett.From the time, the former Minnesota outfielder made his first appearance around the Oriole Park batting cage yesterday morning until he dashed from the stadium last evening, Puckett was the object of everyone's affection and the focus of ESPN's efforts.Orioles bullpen coach Elrod Hendricks rubbed heads with him. Cleveland catcher Tony Pena kissed the cherubic Puckett.

Watching the Cleveland Indians last weekend had to have been a sobering experience for the Orioles' front office.Pretty tough to compete with a lineup that has the likes of Kenny Lofton, Carlos Baerga, Albert Belle, Eddie Murray, etc.Cleveland's No. 7 hitter, Manny Ramirez, might hit cleanup for the Orioles. Same with third baseman Jim Thome. You can match up with these guys if you get a Mike Mussina-like performance.Otherwise . . . trouble. Time for the Orioles to do something radical, something that would really improve their lineup.

PLAYER OF THE YEAR Lindsey Puckett Fallston Puckett, the daughter of long-time Fallston coach Alice Puckett, started playing field hockey at 7. Since then, the senior forward has developed exceptionally refined skills for a high school player. She seems able to do just about anything she wants with the ball, and she demonstrated that in leading the No. 2 Cougars to a 19-1 season and their 11th state title. Although she led the Cougars in scoring with 10 goals and 15 assists, Puckett could play anywhere.

C. Milton Wright's defense repeatedly blocked passing lanes, knocked down crosses and did everything possible to stop Fallston's quick passes on offense. The Cougars had the ball for most of yesterday's field hockey game, but the Mustangs wouldn't let them do much with it. But Lindsey Puckett came to the rescue again. The University of Maryland-bound senior scored her second goal of the game 1:39 into sudden-death overtime to give No. 2 Fallston a 2-1 victory over visiting C.M. Wright in the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference opener for both teams.

Last week against No. 2 Severna Park, Fallston's field hockey team struggled on offense, but yesterday, the attack struck with precision as the No. 5 Cougars upset No. 1 Garrison Forest, 3-1, in an afternoon contest riddled with injury and illness for the host Grizzlies. Two Garrison Forest players were taken to the hospital by ambulance - Bayley Mullan, who was hit in the head with a ball, and Sarah Krolus, who suffered a severe asthma attack - and still another, Cody Magness, sat out late in the game struggling to catch her breath.

Fallston's field hockey team has a drill named for sophomore forward Caitlin Dempsey. At the end of every practice, the No. 5 Cougars hit drives off the post and try to make a Dempsey-style shot, a fearless, do-whatever-it-takes effort to get the ball in the cage. Last night, Dempsey showed no fear when she lunged after JoEllen Sumego's drive into the circle and scored the game-winner in a 1-0 double-overtime thriller against Bethesda-Chevy Chase for the state Class 3A championship at Broadneck.

At the beginning of this season, Fallston field hockey coach Alice Puckett didn't expect all that much from her team.Most of her starters had little or no varsity experience, so Puckett expected a rebuilding year. The rebuilding took two games. That's when Puckett discovered the Cougars were better than she thought."I knew when we played Elkton and beat them, 1-0," said Puckett, of the second game of the season. "That was the best game we played all year. It was one of the best high school games I've ever seen.
