Many young athletes don't believe they have to stretch before playing baseball.Baseball doesn't require constant running like basketball or soccer. It doesn't include the physical play of such sports as football or lacrosse.Young players spend their time before their soccer and football games in a formal pre-game workout with teammates. Young players spend their time before baseball games mainly playing catch while chattering with a buddy.And besides the pitcher and catcher, the rest of the team spends its time waiting to catch a fly ball or sitting until a turn at the plate.

There was a time when Vero Beach was a sleepy little town that came alive for six weeks every year when the Dodgers moved into Dodgertown for spring training. The players jokingly referred to it as "Zero Beach," back when I was a Dodgers beat writer here in the early 1980s. The area has been built up considerably since then, and a few of those Dodgers players and coaches who used to joke about it have moved here to enjoy the relatively quiet life along this picturesque stretch of Atlantic coastline.

As No. 6 St. Frances avenged an early season loss to No. 3 McDonogh last night, the 58-42 victory came as a result of the young Panthers' development as a team rather than McDonogh falling into a slump. The visiting Eagles, who started the season 16-0, suffered their second straight loss. The Panthers (12-6) have won five of their past six to pull even with McDonogh at 11-2 in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference. "This says a lot about St. Frances' growth as a team," said McDonogh coach Tom Gizzi, whose squad won a 54-41 decision on Dec. 6. "We caught them in the second game of the year, but they were very, very young.

Last season, Laurel High's boys soccer team felt it could be their time to win a regional championship. However, after a 10-5 regular season that earned them the No. 10 seed in the 4A regional playoffs, Laurel's season ended with a bitter 1-0 loss to second-seeded Parkdale in the second round of the playoffs. Players have put that playoff loss and last year behind them and have focused on the promise of this year's team. Some of the senior leaders say this could be Laurel's best team in years, despite their youth and the loss of many seniors from last year's team.
