BREAKOUT PLAYER / / SHANE VICTORINO Team / / Philadelphia Phillies Position / / Outfielder Comment / / Victorino, 26, can play any spot in the outfield and is one of the fastest players in the league. Now, he has a full-time spot in the lineup and a new coach, Davey Lopes, who is working with him on stealing bases. If he sticks around for two more full seasons, the Flyin' Hawaiian will likely pass Orioles fan favorite Lenn Sakata for second in major league at-bats by a Hawaii native.

"The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon," by Stephen King. Scribner. 224 pages. $16.95.It's not a club anyone would join on purpose: Gage Creed; Danny Torrance; the whole gang from It. Nine-year-old Trisha McFarland is one of them now, though: fictional children who have had the misfortune to wander into the imagination of Stephen King (instead of someone safer like, say, Mark Twain).No one gets out of this club unbruised, and not everyone gets out alive. When we first meet Trisha, she has wandered off the path during a family outing in the Maine woods.

Placed near a soldier's duffel bag under the tree is a sign with bold black letters that reads: "WE PRAY FOR THEM.""We started doing this a few years back for Desert Storm," said Tom Gordon, owner of Silver Image Antique Shop, "and we just kept doing it for the soldiers in Bosnia and all of our troops around the world."
