John Pemberton reaches into his back pocket, pulls out a small broom, bends low and sweeps the dirt left and then right, manicuring the white strip of rubber in the middle of the pitcher's circle. Upright again, he lifts the bill of his dark blue cap and tilts his head for a final inspection. Satisfied, he breaks into a trot and hustles over to first base. For nearly half a century, Pemberton, 77, has operated in the organized mayhem of high school, college and professional sports.

Canyon's softball program will forfeit three nonleague victories from its tournament earlier this season because it used an ineligible player, school officials said. The unidentified player was ineligible during the third quarter grading period, but had improved her grades to be eligible for the fourth. However, she played during spring break before the district-wide eligibility date. "She had the right grades, but had not reached the date of eligibility," Principal Ralph Jameson said Wednesday.

A ball that beaned a British bureaucrat has led to the banning of a revered American expatriate tradition, the Hyde Park softball league. But enthusiasts say the ban imposed by the Environment Department is just not cricket. One player has been quoted as blaming it on anti-Americanism. The department says it prohibited the games after one of its officials was hit on the head by a ball as he was strolling through Hyde Park last month.

Harold Kromer is what baseball people call a "wily veteran with the smarts to get the job done," so he's still pitching while the wunderkinds have come and gone. Once in a while a young one will catch his eye, like Harlie Lunke on Tuesday morning on an Anaheim diamond in Marshall Park, and as raw as this one appeared, it was obvious Lunke might have the determination to make it to the next level.

The Sundance Film Festival has given us some great characters over the years. A nerdy, catchphrase-using Idahoan who wanted us to vote for Pedro. A pie-making waitress with a thing for Andy Griffith. A suicidal Proust scholar who didn't mind pushing a VW van every once in a while. But for all the lovable, and believable, quirky characters on Sundance screens - and there are many - there are plenty that seem forced, self-consciously idiosyncratic types we wouldn't see in real life (or, for that matter, on other movie screens)

Re: "Monterey Bay Campus Is a Role Model," Aug. 10: The Service Learning Institute is one of the best things CSU Monterey Bay had to offer me. My service learning experiences included cooking meals and planning softball games for a local soup kitchen, designing interpretive panels for state parks with local high school students and creating public art that addressed the core issues of youth violence with teens from a juvenile facility. I can only hope that I touched others' lives through service learning as much as they did mine.

With UCLA's softball team ready to open NCAA playoff action in defense of the national championship it won last season, the Bruins' top player can be sure of this: It will be difficult to top the exclamation point put on last season, when she provided one of the most memorable moments in the canon of a vaunted program. The date: May 26, 2003. The place: ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City.

Coach Darwin Tolzin of Westlake had a tough decision to make last weekend: coach two softball games in the Thousand Oaks tournament on Saturday or travel to Fresno for his granddaughter's first communion. "I think I surprised my wife," Tolzin said. "In 40 years of softball, that's the first time softball was second." * Senioritis is having no effect on Westlake ace Erin Voeltz, who is gaining momentum as the playoffs approach.

Oh sure, here they play softball. Hardball politics stayed in the dugout as legislators scrambled onto the diamond for what was optimistically christened the first legislative softball game. The charity game brought out team mascots--the GOP elephant and Democratic donkey--and titled fans, some of whom went bare-chested, and a few of whom shouldn't have. Assembly Speaker Bob Hertzberg was only joking, really, when he said he had bet the state budget on the score. But GOP Sen.
