NORTHWEST GLENDALE - With an eye on the start of Pacific League and a goal to reach the playoffs for the second straight season, Hoover High baseball Coach Joe Cotti likes what he's seen during the first six games of the season. With plenty of new faces on board, the Tornadoes have spent the first couple of weeks getting acclimated on the field. The early results have provided Cotti with good vibes. "They are moving in the right direction and they are learning to play together," Cotti said after host Hoover registered a 12-2 victory against Buckley on Tuesday afternoon in a nonleague game called in the fifth inning because of the 10-run mercy rule.

Over the past few seasons, the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy soccer program has learned all too well of the trials and tribulations that come with venturing south to face off with Orange County foes that make up the majority of CIF Southern Section Division I soccer. Last season, the Tologs lost in the opening round of the playoffs after a trip down south. This time around, Flintridge Sacred Heart will welcome an Orange County foe to the Tologs' confines of Occidental College and the home team is plenty happy about the situation.

After an unprecedented run to the state championships a season ago, Glendale Community College's baseball team is doing its best for an encore. And the first act will begin Saturday at Stengel Field, when the fifth-seeded Vaqueros host No. 12 San Diego Mesa in the first round of the Southern California Regional. Vaqueros Coach Chris Cicuto's squad began its run to state last season with a similar seeding and hosted a first-round regional, as well. With a healthy mix of returners and newcomers coloring this year's run to a second consecutive Western State Conference South Division title, it's a safe bet that the returners' postseason experience will pay dividends, while contending with the pressure of duplicating last year's histrionics.

His birth certificate said Birmingham, Ala., but the man who called himself Sun Ra declared that he was from the planet Saturn. Miles Davis set the late 1950s standard for jazz couture with his Italian tailored suits, but Ra wore Africanized capes, tunics and cartoonish headgear. After the big band era ended, he retained a respected core of musicians in his orchestra for decades - an achievement only duplicated by Duke Ellington.
