The Dodgers are on pace to end a significant drought. A World Series title, their first since 1988? Hardly. That race appears to have been run. But rookie of the year, once  as much a Chavez Ravine tradition as Dodger Dogs, is certainly a possibility. Yasiel Puig, the 22-year-old eye-opener from Cuba, is an early front-runner in just six games. He is hitting .464 with four home runs and 10 runs batted in, while demonstrating defensive skills to make Willie Mays blush. His only shortcoming is the inability to provide consistent pitching.

Standing among the collection of men with receding hairlines and expanding waistlines was a trim college freshman wearing a white jersey with "Howe" draped across the back. Next to him was his 23-year-old sister, clad in jeans and a black sleeveless top.

Even if it opens up a hornets' nest, the owner of the San Jose Bees is giving another crack at professional baseball to four ex-major leaguers whose problems with drug addiction ruined their careers.

Steve Howe drove from Montana to his new baseball home in in South Dakota, hoping he'd left some old baggage behind. It was a 1,200-mile trip from his hometown in Whitefish, and Howe wanted to put at least that much distance between his troubled past and his latest attempt to return to the major leagues.
