Don Cardinal--former street tough, college dropout, and now academic and advocate--opens a door to show a visitor his world. Inside room H105 of Whittier's California High School sit six fidgeting students, including 15-year-old Dan McMillan. Dan has autism, a brain disorder that's all but closed him off from his surroundings. He sniffs Cardinal's sleeve curiously; he can't speak beyond a moan and squints through thick glasses.

Tajah Merrill, who withdrew from Camarillo High on Monday, pitched for Channel Islands on Wednesday in the Raiders' 17-12 loss to Thousand Oaks in a Marmonte League game. Merrill, a junior left-hander who was 2-1 with a 0.91 earned-run average at Camarillo, left the school for personal reasons. He enrolled at Channel Islands on Tuesday, and gave up five runs on four hits in one inning Wednesday. "They moved over the weekend," Channel Islands Coach Don Cardinal said.

Channel Islands baseball Coach Don Cardinal, who has a career winning percentage of .660 in more than 26 seasons, said Friday he will resign at the end of the season. Cardinal, 53, has a record of 425-218-4 and he led the Raiders to the Southern Section 2-A Division title in 1969. Channel Islands was 2-A runner-up in 1972.

Don Cardinal is having no second thoughts as he heads into his final game as a high school baseball coach. "I've had retirement on my mind for two years," he said, "so I'm resolved to it now." Cardinal, who recently completed his 26th season as coach of Channel Islands, will lead the North squad in the Ventura County all-star game at Oxnard College today at 1 p.m. Angel Aragon of Channel Islands, who went 10-3 with a 1.23 earned-run average, will start for the North.

Al Tarazon attained a long-sought personal goal this week when he was selected to replace the retiring Don Cardinal as baseball coach at Channel Islands High. Tarazon, 32, coached the Channel Islands junior varsity from 1987-90 and coached the varsity at Pasadena for the past two seasons. Returning to Channel Islands was always foremost on his mind. "We kind of talked about it before I left (for Pasadena)," Tarazon said. "I went away to get some varsity experience until Don decided to retire."

After 24 years and 399 victories, Channel Islands High baseball Coach Don Cardinal figured he could have his cake and eat it too. At least that's what he did this past week. Cardinal, 58, earned his 400th victory Saturday when Channel Islands defeated Ventura, 7-1, in a nonleague game at Channel Islands. Angel Aragon (4-0) struck out eight in four innings and combined with Tajah Merrill to limit Ventura to two hits. Channel Islands is 7-1.

In his 26th year as coach at Channel Islands High, Don Cardinal knows a thing or two about the cardinal rules of baseball. In fact, Cardinal has been around long enough to have invented them. So there was no second-guessing when Cardinal ordered an intentional walk of the potential go-ahead run in the fifth inning of Channel Islands' 6-5 win over Royal in a Marmonte League opener Wednesday at Channel Islands.

Thousand Oaks High baseball Coach Jim Hansen's aphorism is thus: "When you make a lot of little mistakes and errors, the only way to compensate for it is to score a lot of runs." But for the Lancers, Hansen's words were better said than done Friday in a 5-2 loss to Channel Islands in a Marmonte League game at Thousand Oaks. The teams combined for seven errors--four by Thousand Oaks. Channel Islands senior left-hander Tajah Merrill (2-0) threw a three-hitter and struck out seven.

The Royal High baseball team began the season with a seven-game winning streak but has now eclipsed that mark--in a backward fashion. Channel Islands edged the Highlanders, 5-4, Friday in a Marmonte League game at Royal, stretching the Highlanders' losing streak to eight games. "We're just not getting timely hitting," Royal Coach Mike McCurdy said. His team proved that by hitting well with the bases empty--Travis Kinyoun and Jason Jones each hit solo homers--and poorly with runners on base.
