Jaret Wright caught the visitor staring at his outdated duds and quickly set the record straight. "It's '60s Day today (at school)," Wright said, laughing. "I think I found these pants in the trash." One could hope that's where Wright tossed them afterward. The blue-denim bell bottoms, leisure suit jacket, flowery shirt and medallion hanging from his neck were no fashion statement. They were more like a hallucination.

The compromise was easy. A piano to please mom; a batting cage to make dad happy. The trick for Kyle Evans, the whiz kid from Katella High School, is finding the time to juggle the two. He spent his childhood going from the bench to the plate. Evans became a talented piano player, good enough to spend four years in a conservatory. But there was never much doubt where his future lies. Even his mother knew it. "Kyle was too good at baseball to ever go into music," Judy Evans said.

Leonard Martinez says he thanked a baseball coach at Katella High School last year for telling him he didn't have what it took to make the team. That judgment drove the soft-spoken 16-year-old to something he might not have thought possible without those harsh words--to be elected senior class president. At Katella High in Anaheim, no other Latino student has won that position or any other spot in student government. "That really stuck with me," Martinez said of the coach's words.
