David Miller's bat, lethal to many a window, claimed its first casualty on his third birthday. The little lefthander had just finished unwrapping his first Wiffle Ball set, a gift from his grandfather. Next thing the Miller family knew . . . Smack! A line drive right into the cake. Over the years, Miller has learned more and more about the game. Someday, his father hopes, he'll even learn to aim his liners away from the family home. "I think he's broken windows in every house we've had - here, at the shore," his father, Ronn, said.

There were tears of joy and tears of sadness while the final pieces of the Phillies' opening-day roster continued to fall into place yesterday. Manager Terry Francona began the emotional day by naming his 11-man pitching staff. He ended it by thinning the field of candidates for the last bench job from five players to two. As expected, the season-opening rotation will be Curt Schilling, Chad Ogea, Carlton Loewer, Paul Byrd and Paul Spoljaric. Mike Grace, who had been a candidate for a starting job, was named to the six-man bullpen staff, along with Jeff Brantley, Wayne Gomes, Ken Ryan, Yorkis Perez and Jim Poole.

The Phillies didn't have to look far for the lefthanded bat they hope will bolster their bench next season. David Miller, a native Philadelphian who was the Cleveland Indians' first-round draft pick in 1995, was selected by the Phils in yesterday's Rule 5 draft. Miller, 25, was immediately added to the Phils' 25-man roster. He will compete for a reserve outfield position with the club in spring training. While the Phils were successful in adding Miller, they were unsuccessful in keeping minor-leaguers Ricky Williams and Alberto Castillo.

Sobbing and shaking, a former Abington elementary school teacher told a crowded Montgomery County courtroom yesterday that he "crossed the line" when he supplied a group of his fifth-grade students with beer, marijuana and, in the case of two young teens, sex with his wife. "You didn't just cross the line, you fell into a canyon," Judge Paul W. Tressler, visibly upset, told David Miller. "I get sick to think about it," said Miller, 32, choking back tears. "I had it made. The best job. My oldest daughter starting kindergarten.

Since their arrest almost one year ago, former Abington schoolteacher David Miller and his wife, Maryanne, have denied charges that they provided a steady supply of pot, beer - and in the case of two boys, sex - from their modest Guernsey Avenue home. Yesterday, when the pair went to the Montgomery County Courthouse for what was scheduled to be their first day of trial, it appeared their stories may be changing. Maryanne Miller will plead guilty to multiple charges of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, statutory rape and other crimes, said her attorney, Carol Anne Dailey.

When David Miller returned to his hotel room in Omaha, Neb., the only message he received was that the Cleveland Indians had picked him in baseball's amateur draft. Then he called home to speak with his father, Ronn. Dad's information was more complete: Miller, a 6-4, 200-pound junior first baseman at Clemson University by way of Chestnut Hill Academy, was a first- round selection (No. 23 overall) yesterday. "He was so excited," Ronn Miller said. "David is very understated.

It may not be much of a consolation, but the Abington teacher and his wife who allegedly ran an afterschool vice-athon for local teens weren't in it just for the drinking, smoking and sex. Law enforcement sources said Maryanne Miller - the 29-year-old wife of Highland Elementary School teacher David Miller, 30 - told investigators that she and her husband really care about the youngsters who got drunk, high and had sex in the couple's Guernsey Avenue...

Harness racing's brightest star, the undefeated See You At Peelers, heads a big day of racing as Harrah's Chester presents its fourth annual Super Stakes Sunday. See You At Peelers, a winner of all of her 21 career starts and more than $1.3 million in purse money, will attempt to extend that record in the $350,000 Valley Forge for 3-year-old filly pacers. The daughter of Bettor's Delight is trained by Jimmy Takter and will be driven by Marcus Johansson. The duo will start from post two. Takter has indicated that a victory in the Valley Forge could provide added impetus for him to enter the filly against colts in harness racing's most prestigious pacing event, the Little Brown Jug, at the Delaware County Fairgrounds in Ohio in September.

The bright white baseball rocketed off the bat of Gabe Smith and climbed into the light blue sky above Penn Charter's baseball field. On a blustery day, the fourth-inning blast caught a timely gust and easily cleared the fence in right-center field. Luckier still for Smith, a senior centerfielder for the Quakers, he was out of earshot when his head coach quipped to those sitting behind third base. "He's lucky that went out," said David Miller, who was coaching third base. "I gave him the 3-0 take [sign]

First-year Penn Charter baseball coach David Miller wants his players to take chances. And if someone makes a mistake in doing so, the Quakers, taking a cue from Louisiana State's vaunted program, are supposed to "flush it" and move on. "I think the kids kind of played like robots last season," Miller said. "They played a little too tight. Mistakes are going to happen. You have to learn from it and get better. " Continuing its turnaround from last season, Penn Charter, buoyed by 11 hits and a strong effort from freshman righthander Matt Gorman, easily downed Germantown Academy, 10-4, Thursday in an Inter-Ac League contest in Fort Washington.

More signs that the stock market isn't quite science: J.G. Wentworth & Co. , the Radnor firm that buys accident victims' long-term insurance settlements for up-front cash (ad slogan: "It's my money and I want it now!"), had planned to raise $200 million by selling shares to investors at $22 in its New York Stock Exchange initial public offering last week. But the stock peddlers, led by Barclays Capital and Credit Suisse Securities , couldn't find buyers at that price. So they cut it, and cut it again.

The job has its good days and the job has its bad days. And then there are days like yesterday, when Phillies manager Terry Francona had a really good day and a really bad one all wrapped within one hour. One minute, Francona found himself telling Philly native David Miller, a young man who lusted to be part of this organization, that he was being sent back to where he came from, shuffled off to Buffalo because the Phils did not believe he was ready to play in the majors and the Cleveland Indians would not make a deal to allow their former No. 1 pick to remain as a Phillies farmhand.

To the outside world, baseball players can seem like pieces of meat, commodities in the business of professional sports. In fact, they are no different from anyone else - they laugh, they cry, they feel elation and pain. These emotions bounced wildly yesterday in the Phillies' clubhouse with the announcement of the team's 25th player and final roster spot. Longtime farmhand David Doster, a persevering infielder who had been a victim of numbers in previous years, won out over David Miller, a Philadelphian who dearly wanted to play for his hometown team.

The eyes follow him everywhere. To the shower. To his locker. "I can't even get a drink of water," Phillies coach Brad Mills said yesterday. "I go anywhere and I hear about three necks crack as they follow me. " Mills is the messenger of doom. A few words from him and you are no longer a Phillie, no longer a major league player with a major league salary and major league perks. He says, "Skip needs to see you," and you are toast. That is what happened to Torey Lovullo, Jon Zuber and Billy McMillon on Monday afternoon.

The final spot on the Phillies' opening-day roster could be filled as early as this afternoon. Infielder David Doster and outfielder David Miller are the candidates. There are indications the Phillies would prefer to keep Doster in the big leagues and send Miller to triple A. But it's not that easy. Miller, a 25-year-old from Chestnut Hill Academy, is a Rule 5 draft pick from the Cleveland organization, and the Phillies cannot send him to the minors without his first clearing waivers and then being offered back to the Indians.
