In the Senior Professional Baseball Assn.'s first year of operation, four of its eight franchises folded, one of its owners disappeared, two commissioners came and went and the league, either largely ignored or the target of derision, absorbed losses larger than expected. In this season, its second, the league for players 34 and over--catchers can be as young as 32--has come west, adding the San Bernardino Pride and Sun City (Ariz.) Rays.

The second season of the Senior Professional Baseball Assn. came to an early end Wednesday after an ownership conflict in the Ft. Myers, Fla., franchise forced cancellation of all remaining games. The other five teams in the league--including the San Bernardino Pride--voted to suspend the season after hearing that Ft. Myers General Manager Kip Ingle called his players and told them not to report to today's game with Daytona Beach.

The boys of summer are turning into the senior citizens of winter. Age, old folks are fond of saying, is a state of mind. Legally, however, senior citizenship depends on what you're doing. For Social Security, it's 65. For the Senior Olympics, it's 55. In golf, if you're an amateur it's 55, but if you're a professional, it's only 50. The Senior Professional Baseball Assn.

Just four days after defeating sixth-ranked Texas, San Diego State's women's volleyball team lost to Cal State Fullerton for the first time in 33 meetings. Fullerton (6-7, 1-3), which won 15-12, 15-9, 16-18, 15-11 at home, also ended a 34-match Big West Conference losing streak that dated to the 1987 season. San Diego State (11-9, 2-2), ranked 22nd in the nation, was led by Amy Erben's 20 kills and 15 digs. Jennifer Miller had 14 kills.

Professional athletes die twice. "It's so," says Lee Lacy. "When you are told the only life you know and love is over, it's the same as telling you you are dead and gone." For 16 years Lee Lacy ran and threw and slid with joyful abandon on three major league baseball teams. Today, at 41, he retains his athlete's physique but has gained, or so he says, a middle-age maturity. Even so, he refuses to accept a death sentence. Few athletes ever do.

The first pelican encountered here was an at-large bird perched on a piling near Tampa Bay. The area's newest Pelicans -- the St. Petersburg Pelicans -- were all gathered downtown at Al Lang Stadium. They're a baseball team, as well as an odd group of birds. They're a collection of Roy Hobbses, who have been away from the game for a time -- in some cases, a long, long time.

First the news: "There will be a second season," Jim Morley, founder of the Senior Professional Baseball Association, said this week as the Florida-based league's 72-game regular-season schedule ended. Four of the eight teams will take part in playoffs this weekend. But judging from attendance, many didn't know the league had a first season. Average attendance was only 921. Most teams, said Morley, lost "between 500,000 and 1 million dollars." One owner disappeared and still hasn't been found.
