There's an old baseball saying that when a pitcher is contemplating retirement, the hitters will usually make the decision for him. Those batters spoke loudly and clearly this spring to Angel right-hander Tim Belcher, who took his cue and walked away from the game Saturday, ending a distinguished 14-year big league career that began with the Dodgers. "My last two starts, I had a few guys 0-2, and they fouled off two or three of my maximum-effort pitches like it was nothing," Belcher, 39, said.

In July 1917, 19-year-old Private Harold R. Adams of Los Angeles received from his then-sweetheart the gift of a small black diary. The book was three inches wide and five inches high and covered in thin, grainy leather. It had a flap that folded over from back to front and was fastened with a black snap. On the flap, embossed in gold, flowery script, was "A Line a Day." Today the diary is worn smooth at the edges and exudes the dust-and-mildew smell of the years.
