"Now there's nothing to worry about," Jennifer said after she was named Monday as one of seven members of the Royal Court for the 108th Rose Parade.

Jennifer Martinez glared at the catcher's mitt, went into her windmill delivery and . . . pop! An instant later, ball struck mitt perfectly. Remember that word, for this was only warm-ups.
