As Argenis Calderon's face has appeared on movie screens in New York City and across New Jersey, audiences have watched him play baseball in Camden's Pyne Poynt Park, navigate a tumultuous home life, graduate high school near the top of his class, and prepare to attend college. Since then viewers of Pyne Poynt , a documentary released this year about the North Camden Little League, have often approached Calderon at screenings, some with tears in their eyes, to tell him that his story inspired them.

The best part about minor-league baseball? It's half game, half game center. Minor-league baseball is more than a training ground for future big-leaguers - it's also a great value for families looking for a day or night out. Consider the experience of Timothy Field from Palmer Township, in the Lehigh Valley: He brings his 8-year-old son to games in Allentown when the boy visits during the summer. "I love the time here," Field says, adding that, while attending any sporting event with his son is special, there's something even more special about being together at a baseball game.

SAN FRANCISCO - Four years ago, when Edubray Ramos was a teenager in Venezuela painting cars and cleaning floors, this day was inconceivable. The day that Ramos walked into a big-league clubhouse to find a No. 61 Phillies jersey with his name on the back. "I was out of baseball," Ramos said through an interpreter. "It was impossible for me to imagine that. It's a beautiful moment for me. " Ramos, 23, did not receive a signing bonus when the Phillies plucked him from an adult baseball league three years after the St. Louis Cardinals had released him. Now, not only is he in the majors, but Ramos is a legitimate prospect to one day become a closer.

Mr. Parker had "three true passions" in life: family, teaching, and baseball, said his wife of 42 years, Hope Lynn Parker.

The NBA Finals will conclude on Sunday, Father's Day, an ironic end date for what has become a Mother's Day sport. Though one 2013 study suggested the trend may at last be abating, pro basketball, for a variety of complex sociological reasons, is played disproportionately by young men who never had dads in their lives. That's why, when there's a McMansion to be gifted or a postgame shout-out to be made, the NBA parent who typically gets the call is mom. Maybe a more fitting fare for Father's Day would be Game 7 of the World Series.

Inquirer Player of the Year Nolan Jones Holy Ghost Prep, infielder The 6-foot-4, 220-pounder starred as a smooth-fielding shortstop, incredibly dangerous lefthanded hitter, and hard-throwing righthanded closer. Jones was selected by the Cleveland Indians in the second round of Major League Baseball's amateur draft. He was the No. 55 overall pick. Many publications had predicted that the talented senior would be snatched in the first round. "Cleveland is a great organization, so I'm happy," Jones said.

Neumann-Goretti was returning a pair of top-notch pitchers in Jeff Ciocco and Ethan Pritchett and two four-year starters in centerfielder Brian Verratti and third baseman Nick D'Amore. But with six first-year varsity players in the mix, Kevin Schneider knew there likely would be growing pains. And he was proven right when the squad dropped five of its first seven contests. "As coaches, we said: 'We're going to have to coach more than we ever have in our lives,' " the Saints boss said.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Brian Verratti pretty much summed up Neumann-Goretti's baseball season. "We started out the year as the area's top-ranked team. We got off to a slow start and dropped out of the rankings, and then we came on strong at the end to accomplish our goals," the senior centerfielder and leadoff man said. Verratti and the Saints, written off by some after a 2-5 start, captured the program's first state title with a 3-0 blanking of District 6's Bishop McCort in a rain-delayed PIAA Class 2A final Thursday at Penn State's Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.
