Although many sports broadcasters--and sportswriters, for that matter--grow up hoping to play the games they eventually wind up describing, Ivan Lara had his eyes focused on the press box from the start. As a youngster growing up in Ciudad Obregon, in the Mexican state of Sonora--where baseball, not soccer, is the local passion--he remembers listening to storied broadcaster Alfonso Araujo Bojorquez paint a word picture of games in Mexico's Pacific League.

Jaime Jarrin led a friend toward a quiet corner in the press box at Anaheim's Edison International Field, leaned against a wall and heaved a sigh. Here in the shadows, he figured, away from the excitement of last Friday's Dodger-Angel exhibition game going on below, he could enjoy a few minutes of peace and quiet. But still they found him.

The Angels reached into the minor leagues for two new radio announcers, hiring Brian Barnhart for English broadcasts and Ivan Lara for Spanish broadcasts. Barnhart, 33, joins Mario Impemba on KRLA (1110 AM). Barnhart, currently the host of a sports talk show in Oklahoma City, did play-by-play for the Triple-A Oklahoma City 89ers from 1988-94. "I'm just thrilled," Barnhart said Tuesday. "This gives me the job I've always dreamed of."

The Angels extended another hand to the Latino community Tuesday, announcing an agreement to air six games on Spanish-language television station KVEA (Channel 52). The team's Latino marketing initiative, started last year, takes two steps forward this weekend.

The Walt Disney Co. and the Angels are apparently combining their vast resources in an attempt to sign free-agent pitcher Orlando Hernandez, the Cuban exile who is the older half-brother of 1997 World Series MVP Livan Hernandez. Joe Cubas, Hernandez's agent, said he had a three-hour meeting with Angel front-office executives in Arizona on Friday, and among the issues discussed were a potential three-year baseball contract and a Disney deal for movie rights to Hernandez's life story.

The Boston Globe recently asked Celtic players to name the toughest player they ever had to defend against in the NBA. Robert Parish, the veteran center, didn't have to ponder. "No one will ever give me as much trouble again as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar did," he said. "That guy gave me the blues. "There was nothing I could do to stop him. I fouled him, I hit him, I fronted him, and it never worked. Kareem always had my number. I was so happy when he retired I almost bought him a gift myself."

If you won't come see the Angels, the Angels will come see you. Players, coaches and broadcasters will appear Saturday at four Orange County locations, trying to generate enthusiasm for the new season. Autographs and ticket giveaways will be on the program at each location. While teams traditionally organize such caravans before spring training, designed to stir interest and ticket sales before the season starts, the Angels hope fans might pay closer attention now.

For those who saw the final two pitches of the Dodgers' games on Friday and Saturday, take heart. You only had to see a joyous Rafael Ramirez running into the arms of his Houston Astros teammates twice. There is no telling how much longer John Candelaria will be seeing it. Proving that nightmares can strike the same place twice, Candelaria was beaten by pinch-hitter Ramirez on a one-strike pitch with one out in the final inning for a second consecutive night Saturday.
