Whether you're talking about year-old parks or century-old buildings, the city of Orange is Pitcher perfect. Noon to 1: Pitcher Park is only three city lots, but it combines an arboretum, honey house and fire-and-farm museum. Laurence and Alice Pitcher donated the property to the city in 1988; Laurence's parents originally purchased the property in 1912. The Pitchers' barn and honey house were rebuilt before the park was dedicated in December, 1992.

Luis Gonzalez is baseball's best home run hitter, at least for today. Gonzalez, who has crept up behind Barry Bonds in the race to break Mark McGwire's record, beat Sammy Sosa, 6-2, in the finals Monday night to win the All-Star Home Run Derby. "I was kind of in a fog, especially considering the guys I was going against the last couple of rounds," Gonzalez said. "I was so nervous in my first home run derby. I just wanted to get past the first round, then the second round, I was thinking, 'Geez.'
