Seattle Mariners' scout Myron Pines has a different perspective when it comes to evaluating potential major league players. While most scouts are content to sit in the stands and watch, Pines gets a closer look--from the dugout. Pines is in his seventh season as baseball coach at Santiago High School, where he helped turn around a struggling program. Last year, he led the Cavaliers to their first outright league championship since 1969.

I am a Santiago High School songleader. I was very hurt by your so-called column about our school. You make us out to be a school with no spirit, awful cheerleaders and no athletes. Well, we are here for a reason . . . to graduate. But these extracurricular activities are our way of being united as a school. This is to bring our school together and have some good, clean fun. We try our hardest and that is all you or anyone else can ask. So, if you had a point it was a pretty awful way of stating it, and if you thought it would be fun to pick on our school, think again.

Tina Danks, wife of Corona Santiago junior varsity football coach Dave Danks, was struggling with a jammed vending machine. It had taken her last dollar. She kept tapping the button, kept getting no response, and the look of frustration was evident. Watching from a few yards away was Dale Thompson, a 6-foot-5, 248-pound tight end who looks very much the part. He extended his hand and inserted money out of his own pocket....

Santiago's baseball team will miss the playoffs after forfeiting its 11 victories for using a player who violated Southern Section rules by competing in an amateur league, Cavalier Coach Paul Allen said. The player, a starter, competed in the Sunday league during the entire season. "I know what's right and what's wrong, and this was wrong," Allen said. "He should have known better.

"It's not right for (taggers) to do it. I wanted to help the community look better."

The California Interscholastic Federation has denied Santiago's appeal to allow a boy to play field hockey. Quan Vu, elected captain of Santiago's field hockey team, appealed a Southern Section ruling that denied him the right to play the all-girls' sport. The case gained national attention recently on the MSNBC cable network, and on local television news shows and radio talk shows.

Quan Vu is co-captain of the Santiago High girls' field hockey team, a title that goes to players who are loyal and inspirational and exhibit a team-first attitude. Captains are also, quite often, stars of the games. Not Vu. You have to play to be considered a star, and Vu has been banned from competition because the California Interscholastic Federation Southern Section has ruled that you have to be a girl to play field hockey. Vu, a boy, doesn't qualify.
