WHEN the Toronto Blue Jays picked Dunedin, Fla., as its new spring training site in 1977, the mayor was supposed to throw out the first pitch. Along came a woman, carrying a baseball. Someone called to her that the mayor would throw out the ceremonial ball, thank you very much. "Excuse me, I am the mayor," said the woman. Judith Caplan Gould, a native Philadelphian who grew up in Elkins Park, was the first female mayor of the Pinellas County city. Even when Judy was throwing the ball, which she had to do four times to please a photographer, a team official tried to wrest the baseball from her so that they "could give the honor to the mayor.

DUNEDIN, Fla. - Phillies righthander Ryan Madson (right big toe) needed just nine pitches for his perfect rehab inning for Class A Clearwater against Dunedin last night. With threatening skies and rain approaching, Madson warmed up quickly, then went out and got a groundout and two strikeouts in the sixth inning of Clearwater's 2-1 loss. "It felt good today," Madson said of his quick session. "Maybe it was what I needed to get back into the swing of things. Working quick. " Madson then threw 10-plus pitches in the bullpen.

Bishop Conwell had a hectic schedule on its six-day tour in the South, but the 20 traveling Cubs returned Monday with an undefeated record. The Cubs managed three wins on the trip, and managed side jaunts to many major tourist attractions. "The girls knew the Florida trip was a reward and they knew we were going to have fun, but they also knew that we were primarily going to play softball," Cubs coach Dave Schafer said. "We were going to play in the warm weather so we could get ready for our league.

DUNEDIN, Fla. - On the list of things no Phillies fans want to see in the final days of spring training, watching a guy who might very well be the team's most popular player leave a game with an injury would rank fairly high. But that's what happened yesterday afternoon in Dunedin. Ken Giles, the 24-year-old reliever who provided must-see TV as a rookie last season with his triple-digit radar-gun fastball, came out after facing only one hitter during the eighth inning against the Blue Jays.

DUNEDIN, Fla. - A month ago, as the first reliever to come out of the bullpen in the first game of the spring schedule, Phillippe Aumont battled his old demons. He walked the first hitter he faced. And the second one, too. He stepped off the mound and tried to talk his way through it: "No, Phil, not again. " After the game, Kyle Kendrick and Kevin Frandsen found Aumont, the pitcher with the prized arm but embattled ego, and told him to relax. Forget about the past. Don't concern yourself with the future.

DUNEDIN, Fla. - The first week of the Jimmy Rollins Spring Training Saga began with the shortstop belittling the importance of exhibition play results, finding himself on the bench for 3 days, and then coming to terms with manager Ryne Sandberg amid the abrupt benching. The second week of the Jimmy Rollins Spring Training Saga began Tuesday, when ESPN's Buster Olney reported that there were "strong sentiments within the [Phillies] organization" that the team would be better off trading the shortstop.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Chase Utley shuttled into position and fielded the ball, then fired a strike to Ryan Howard during infield practice Wednesday morning at the Carpenter Complex. This spring, Utley hasn't been working out alone or taking ground balls while seated on a stool. In the first 5 days of full-squad workouts, Utley has been in line with every other healthy player in camp. The positive path will continue when games begin in Clearwater. Manager Charlie Manuel said Wednesday that Utley would start in the team's intrasquad game Friday and would likely be back in the starting lineup when the Phillies open the Grapefruit League schedule Saturday in Clearwater against the Houston Astros.
