The John Anson Ford Amphitheatre opened its 2001 season Saturday night with a stirring tribute to composer Kurt Weill. Appropriately--given the eclecticism of the Ford's overall programming--the production stretched from the big band jazz of pianist-composer Roger Kellaway to the blues guitar of Robben Ford and the Broadway-based cabaret style of singer Ann Kerry Ford. Kellaway chose to open each half of the program with a surprisingly envelope-stretching rendering of "My Ship."

TEMPE, Ariz. - Mike Scioscia has “no doubt” that former shortstop Omar Vizquel, a 24-year big-league veteran, has the potential to be a major league manager. But for Vizquel to be successful in his first step toward that goal, as the Angels' roving minor league infield instructor, he'll have to adjust his perspective when it comes to player evaluation. Scioscia, the former Dodgers catcher, made a similar transition from major league player to minor league coach when, after his 15-year playing career, he became the Dodgers' minor league catching coordinator in 1995.

While Mike Scioscia called the Angels' recent White House visit "one final victory lap," the benefits of a World Series title continue to pop up in new and perhaps unexpected ways.

Some of the best football players in the Valley area said aloha twice Thursday night at Pierce College's John Shepard Stadium. Goodby high school. Hello college. The players in the Daily News All-Star game--especially those on the East team--drowned their high school memories in wide-open, junior college-style action. Consider it an entrance exam. Then give the players headed for local community colleges a passing grade. The all-stars didn't approach the usual high scores of JC games.
