Winning the Little League national championship requires more than ability from the players and coaches. Tolerance and understanding, dedication and determination are equally important. And a strong dose of humor doesn't hurt, either. Northridge players and coaches virtually lived together for two months, practicing every day from the last week of June until the World Series championship game Saturday.

When Gregory Peck teams up with Lauren Bacall for a new TV movie, they don't have any trouble fitting together as a family. To add to the family dynamics, Peck's daughter Cecilia co-stars as their daughter. Peck co-starred with Bacall 36 years ago in "Designing Woman," and has remained friends with her over the years.

"But with five other children, we just couldn't afford it," Audrey Hufnagel said.
