    Don't let the size fool you … Warwick's Ben Delgado is definitely a catcher
    At first glance, there's little about Ben Delgado that screams "catcher." He stands 5-foot-8 and weighs 170 pounds, size usually reserved for a middle infielder … or a place-kicker. Then you see him on the field. He throws out 71 percent of would-...
  • Apodaca: Adventurer has calm to face ocean depths

    Chris Welsh is the kind of man little boys dream of becoming, a rare, boundary-pushing breed whose life is full of exploration, derring-do and far-off places. He's a nerves-of-steel guy who flies planes and helicopters, races boats, goes on off-road...
  • Rx for peace: First return America's own occupied territories

    Perhaps you are right that peace negotiations based on Israel's pre-1967 boundaries, though perhaps arbitrary, are basically "what has to happen" to end the Israel-Palestine conflict ("Obama and the Arab Spring," May 19). But you should firmly tell our...

  • Por los caminos de Côte du Rhône

    Estoy en Francia, país que se puede caracterizar por decenas de cosas, entre ellas el vino. Ese es el motivo de este viaje que, como se podrán imaginar, viene "muy bien regado". Yo vivo en Mendoza, Argentina, una "wine region" de crecimiento asombroso en...

    Queen of the road reigns buses for 40 years
    If you are lucky, once in a great while, you talk to someone who very quickly makes you feel like you've known them forever. Life-long area resident Queenie King is one of those people. Queenie retired at the end of the school year after driving a school...
  • Bright future might be set

    Bright future might be set
    Brian Thornton always thought that by age 26, he'd be immersed in the real world, making a name and a career for himself that had nothing to do with squeezing off sets. Instead, he finds himself starting for the U.S. national men's volleyball team in the...

    Here's the pitch from Wilfred Santiago
    He was a man in motion — the beautifully controlled fury of a great athlete. How, though, to convey that energy and grit and grace on the flat page of a graphic novel? How to suggest the up-and-at-'em vigor of a Roberto Clemente in a venue that...
