E.J. Scott makes his way through life with a swagger and a white cane. He is not an athlete in the traditional sense of those whose exploits appear on these pages. But what he achieved recently is Blake Griffin-esque. He rose above the rest and completed the ultimate slam dunk. Scott has lost all but 15% of his sight to a disease called choroideremia. His peripheral vision is all but gone. Normal sunlight is extremely painful. He was diagnosed when he was 27; he is 37 now, and his vision continues to erode.

As it turns out, we all got the question wrong. How would the Dodgers split playing time among four outfielders? By the time the Dodgers finally got their four headline outfielders healthy at the same time, they had decided to split time among five outfielders. For now, the Dodgers have a stable outfield rotation. If they face a right-hander, the outfield consists of Carl Crawford, Andre Ethier, and either Matt Kemp or Yasiel Puig. If they face a left-hander, the outfield consists of Kemp, Puig and Scott Van Slyke.

February 13, 1992 | MARK CHALON SMITH, Mark Chalon Smith is a free-lance writer who regularly covers film for The Times Orange County Edition.
Movie adaptations of major literature have, at best, been a checkered affair. Most directors, no matter how talented, usually stumble when trying to scrunch a great writer's vision into the limitations of film. Ridley Scott's "The Duellists" is one of those ambitious but flawed adventures--in this, Scott's first major movie, you never quite feel the full significance, psychologically or historically, of Joseph Conrad's ironic story, "The Duel."

At the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department headquarters, a winding hallway leads to an unexpected oasis. Surrounded by trees, with a built-in grill and tables, the patio is an ideal place for a barbecue. Until recently, though, only a select few enjoyed it, smoking cigars and fashioning it into their own private hangout. In his first week as interim sheriff, John Scott announced that the cigar patio, as it was called, would be open to all employees. A contest would be held to choose a new name and smoking would no longer be allowed.

The first half of the 40th Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach generally was a stately affair. There were no major accidents, though Sebastien Bourdais slammed into the tire barriers twice, and Ryan Hunter-Reay maintained the lead with apparent ease. Then the wheels came off, literally and figuratively. Hunter-Reay sparked a multicar crash that knocked him and five others out, another crash ended Justin Wilson's day and Scott Dixon ran short of fuel while leading with only two laps left in the 80-lap race Sunday.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - By the time Bubba Watson tapped in for a textbook par on the final hole of his opening round at the Masters, he had that familiar feeling. Watson felt both a surge of energy and a sense of ease at Augusta National, a satisfaction in the patience and precision that paved his way to a three-under-par 69 Thursday. A solid day's work. Three-way tie for second place. One shot off the lead set by Bill Haas. Two years ago, Watson left these grounds with a green jacket, triumphing in a playoff over Louis Oosthuizen with a swashbuckling, crowd-pleasing approach.

The Wildcats players will vote whether to unionize on April 25 th . Scott said that the NLRB ruling was a “terrible idea” and that it would “destroy” college sports.

HOUSTON -- Whether it was deliberate or not, Scott Feldman seemed to slow-play the Angels on Sunday, when he allowed one run and three hits in seven innings of the Houston Astros' 7-4 victory in Minute Maid Park. Several times, the Astros right-hander appeared to be in clear violation of a rule that requires a pitcher, when the bases are empty, to deliver his next pitch within 12 seconds of receiving the ball from the catcher after the previous pitch. “Theoretically, yes, there is,” Angels Manager Mike Scioscia said when asked about the rule before Monday's series finale against the Astros.

As USC reached the midway point of spring workouts Thursday, Coach Steve Sarkisian decided to shake things up. About an hour into the Trojans' eighth practice, players gathered in an end zone at Brian Kennedy-Howard Jones Field for a competitive one-on-one drill. A dance contest. Players whooped and hollered as teammates squared off in the surprise competition as music blared from sideline speakers. "Guys have some moves and some guys don't," Sarkisian said. "I think some guys might listen to country music.

After moving into her home near Dodger Stadium in 1987, Lisa Keller learned to live with the gridlock. She scheduled her work hours to avoid the swarm of fans in blue T-shirts. And before long, she'd learned a guiding truth of her hilly neighborhood: If you don't have to leave your house on game days, don't. "It was really crazy," she said. "The sheer amount of traffic was really, just, annoying. " But in 1996, after the neighborhood successfully lobbied then-owner Peter O'Malley to shut the Scott Avenue gate, Keller said things in her mostly residential neighborhood west of the stadium improved a lot. Without an entry point, game traffic started to fade away and before long there was new game-day wisdom in the neighborhood: If you need to get into or out of the area, head to Scott Avenue.
