Angels pitcher Tommy Hanson occasionally experiences a short, unsettling dream. It comes just as he dozes off, and ends abruptly before he can reach a deep sleep. "A lot of pitchers have that kind of dream," Hanson said, "where the ball is coming at your face and you're jolted awake. " The nightmare became reality for two major league pitchers last season. In September, Brandon McCarthy of the Oakland Athletics suffered a skull fracture that required surgery after a line drive off the bat of Angels shortstop Erick Aybar struck him on the side of his head.

Mary Glass carries a picture of her 20-month-old son, Chris, in her wallet--a golden-haired toddler with blue eyes holding a bunny. It was taken a few weeks before Chris drowned last year in the pool in his back yard. Four years ago, Bill and Marsha Kerr suffered a similar loss. While they were away on a business trip in Florida, their 2-year-old son, Cody, slipped through the sliding-glass door and fell into the pool.
