Katrina Marinelli swung for the fences and got all ball. "Nice hit," said a teammate. It wasn't really a hit. The 12-year-old Roland Park girl was hitting a softball off a tee into a net during practice, as the Rams, a newly formed girls softball team at Roland Park Elementary/Middle School, prepared for an April 8 away game against Dumbarton Middle School in Rodgers Forge. Coaches and parents who organized the team say it's the first girls softball team at the school in many years, if not ever, and a rarity in the budget-conscious Baltimore Public School System, where middle school softball is considered a luxury.

Eastern Tech pitcher Jordan Cargile led her team to its best season in the program's history last season. Now, she is fully focused on taking her team to an even higher level. The Mavericks surged through the 2013 regular season and playoffs, only to fall short in the Class 3A championship game to Northern-Calvert, which at the time was the top-ranked team in the nation by MaxPreps. Cargile, the reigning All-Metro Player of the Year, is confident her team has the talent to make another run at the title, and she can't wait to get back on the field.

THE TRAVEL-team baseball season for kids has closed. The other day as I relived the memories of this summer season, I found myself exclaiming: "We were robbed! Our guy was safe at third!"I was the third-base coach for a travel team, and I was recalling a disagreement I had had with an umpire who called one of our kids out at third. The kid was safe. The third baseman missed the tag. I know because I saw the entire play while standing in the third-base coaching box. At least I was standing there until the umpire invited me to leave the field.

Recently, I paced the sidelines of a baseball field in Lansdowne, waiting for one more 10-year-old wearing a Roland Park Travel Team uniform to appear on the horizon. If a player did not show up quickly, Roland Park, my son's team, would not have nine players. It would forfeit the game to a team from Towsontowne, and would be eliminated from the Lansdowne Riverview Recreation Council Tournament.The coach of Roland Park, Brent Hoffman, pulled out the team roster as Susan Corden, a mother of a player already at the field, punched a cellular phone trying to summon one more player to Lansdowne.

Patterson soccer star Bash Kamara, originally from the African nation of Sierra Leone, is proud to say he has an 89 in the Spanish I course he's taking this semester. Along with giving his grade-point average a boost, it's helping him score more goals. Teammate Adrian Boodoo, a native of Trinidad & Tobago who moved here four years ago, recently enjoyed his first gyro when one of the team's newest members, Greek midfielder Dimitris Kyteas, brought a sample to school for lunch one day. Boodoo was quick to reciprocate, sharing his country's favorite street food -"doubles," a flatbread sandwich filled with curried chickpeas.

THE COLUMBIA Clippers are engaged in one of the more ambitious fund-raising efforts you'll see associated with a youth group. It is an effort that will help offset expenses for an experience that gives new meaning to the term "travel team." The youth swimming club affiliated with the Columbia Park and Recreation Association is using all sorts of fund-raising techniques - among them the usual car washes and sales of cookie dough, pizzas, coffees, and kitchen niceties - to pay for a trip next spring half way around the world.

DEAR CAL -- Over the past five years, elite travel clubs have taken a foothold on youth sports. Years ago these kids were playing in Little Leagues across the county. What do you tell parents who are confused about what program to put their kids into? Dennis Felix, Oakley, Calif. DEAR DENNIS -- My advice to parents is to educate yourselves on the pros and cons of travel baseball - really look into what travel baseball means in terms of the commitment and the time for practices and games.

The U.S. women's national lacrosse team is glad to have Cookie on their side. After the squad's practice Monday morning at the UMBC Soccer Stadium in preparation for the Federation of International Lacrosse Women's World Cup, which begins next week in Oshawa, Ontario, it's easy to see why. Cookie is a menacing presence. At 5 feet 10, Cookie - also known as Kristen Carr - is the tallest player on the American squad, towering over her teammates by an average of about five inches.

DEAR CAL / / MY 17-year-old son is a pretty good pitcher, but he can?t hit much. I took him to a guy who played semipro ball to fix his swing. He hit well in the cages but not live pitching. What can I do to help him? John Rushnok, Middleburg Heights, Ohio DEAR JOHN // It is not unusual to find someone like your son,who hits line drives all over the place in the batting cage or during batting practice but struggles against live pitching. While there is no perfect formula for how to fix this, from my experience the only way to improve a hitter?

NBC'S COVERAGE of the Olympic Games has changed the way I view life. I used to be a results oriented kind of guy. I wanted to get information as events unfolded, not packaged in dramatic, this-could-be-a-movie motif. But after experiencing two weeks of the network's sentimental coverage and after seeing the big-ratings it has drawn, I have been converted to the NBC style.The other day, for instance, when thinking about the recently completed season of my kid's baseball travel team, the Roland Park team of 11- and 12-year-olds coached by Brent Hoffman, I tried to figure out how NBC would tell the tale.

Each week, The Baltimore Sun publishes a Q&A with an area college lacrosse player to get you more acquainted with the player and his/her team. Today's guest is Loyola junior defenseman Reid Acton, who ended Denver senior attackman Mark Matthews' streak of 39 straight games with a goal in the Greyhounds' 12-9 victory Saturday night. How would you assess your play against Matthews? Mark's a really good player. I actually grew up playing with Mark and covering him. [Both Acton and Matthews are Ontario natives.]
