Burlington Township is going back to the egg this year. "We are definitely in a building process," said coach Alex Marian. "I'm trying to start with the basics, build on the fundamentals of the game, try to improve all phases of (the players') game. " The Falcons were winless last year. Since essentially the same players are back, inexperience will not be a problem, but all phases of their game could certainly stand to improve. Marian listed the things he planned to have the team work on: "The fundamentals - for instance, handling the ball, dribbling the ball without looking at their hands; also fundamentals in passing - the bounce pass, the chest pass, the baseball pass, the hook pass.

It was the top of the fifth inning, with Sun Valley leading 14-1. Chester needed four runs to keep the game going to avoid losing prematurely by the 10- run rule. The Clippers managed to score three runs and load the bases for junior Nikkita George. But George grounded out - and to the delight of the Vanguards, the sixth and seventh innings were omitted. Chester lost the April 25th game, 14-4. For Chester's first-year softball coach, it must have been just another in a season long filled with disappointment.

Phillies minor league instructor Jim Fregosi doesn't get angry or frustrated going through monotonous, repetitive fielding drills with Class A Clearwater Phils shortstop Kim Batiste. Batiste, considered a talented prospect, has 28 errors in 70 games this season. But Fregosi, a former six-time, All-Star infielder for the California Angels, New York Mets, Texas Rangers and Pittsburgh Pirates, understands Batiste's struggle. "A lot of times, young players will make foolish errors, just by doing things like not setting up to throw properly," Fregosi said.

The time is opportune to reflect on the basic characteristics of our economic system that have brought about our success in recent years. Competitive and open markets, the rule of law, fiscal discipline and a culture of enterprise and entrepreneurship should continue to undergird rapid innovation and enhanced productivity that in turn should foster a sustained further rise in living standards. It would be imprudent, however, to presume that the business cycle has been purged from market economies so long as human expectations are subject to bouts of euphoria and disillusionment.

As a student-teacher at West Chester Henderson in 1969, Paul Stankewicz decided to volunteer his time with the boys' lacrosse team. "I was sort of green," Stankewicz said. "I didn't know anything about it. It gave me something to do in the spring, and I thought it would help me get a job somewhere. " Stankewicz, 50, has stayed with Henderson and lacrosse, so much so that he is synonymous with the school and the sport. After completing his student teaching, Stankewicz graduated from West Chester State in 1969.

Closer Jonathan Papelbon had a simple message Wednesday night: The Phillies have to start playing better fundamental baseball. Papelbon also took the blame for a 6-2 loss in 11 innings to the Washington Nationals. Before Monday, he had not blown a save all year. Now he has blown two saves in three days. With the Phillies leading, 2-1, in the ninth, Papelbon allowed an infield hit, a walk and a two-out RBI single by Jayson Werth that tied the score. The Phillies had to settle for winning two out of three against Washington.

The loss to Maryland may end up being costly for Temple. Going into the season, there was a thought that the Owls (1-1) would have a tough time getting the six wins needed for bowl eligibility. The only sure victories on the schedule - or so some believed - were games against Villanova, Maryland, and Army. But after the Owls' 36-27 setback Saturday against the Terrapins, the road to a bowl game became rougher. So, with a key game at Penn State on Sept. 22, it's probably good for Temple to be entering the first of two bye weeks this season.

The Downingtown softball team, it turns out, owes its success to something other than the pitching of Angie Templin and a sensational defense. The Whippets are successful, in part, because head coach Mike Morgan isn't exactly Tony Gwynn at the plate. "I can't hit," Morgan said. "I can't hit a lick. You can't teach hitting, so I have to teach something. " Watch Downingtown for a game or two and you see what Morgan teaches. The Whippets are one of the most fundamentally sound - if not the most fundamentally sound - teams in the area.

It was a cold, blustery day, the type of day when it's tough enough to feel your fingers, let alone feel around for ground balls. Yet, Downingtown's players were fielding ground balls and hitting the cutoffs and making all the right fundamental plays in a 1-0 preseason win over Haverford High earlier this week. "No errors," Whippets coach Mike Morgan said. "Our pitchers were throwing strikes. We were able to get a run. As cold as it was, we played well. " Fundamentals.

FOR GOOD or for ill, Republican presidential front-runner and reality-television star Donald Trump has made the subject of birthright citizenship a national issue. Granting citizenship to anyone born on American soil, regardless of their parents' legal status, has long been the norm under the 14th Amendment. But Trump and other Republican candidates argue that birthright citizenship has led to gross abuses, such as the rise of "birth tourism. " Is birthright citizenship an idea whose time has passed?

IN 1966, Margaret McNamara brought a bag of used books to four boys she was tutoring in reading in Washington, D.C. She allowed each child to keep one, and they were delighted. Her giving soon developed into a program that eventually would bring books to millions of children nationwide: the "Reading Is Fundamental" program. Since I started writing a column, I've tried to do something similar, except that my mission is to get people to read more about personal finance. I often spotlight books that can help you become better money managers.

After every home victory, the Williamstown baseball players would sit with their backs to the dugout fence while coach Joe Smith announced the stars of the game. Each honored player would run down the row, high-fiving his teammates. If he was a hitter, he would grab a bat and swing as part of the celebration. If he was a pitcher, he would pantomime firing a fastball for a strike. "Positive reinforcement," Smith said of the top tenet of his coaching philosophy. In his first season at the Gloucester County school, Smith led Williamstown to the best season in the history of the program.

I SUSPECTED IT WOULD happen, just not as quickly as it did. Whenever acts of terror are committed in the name of Islam, there is generally a counter-attack from the enlightened, usually secular but always "progressive" flank of society in which the Islamic jihad is conflated with all types of religious fundamentalism. It can be seen in the letters to the editor, talking about how the Paris attacks were not about radical Muslims, and that other religions and other groups are equally guilty of violence, people like abortion-clinic bombers, and Jewish settlers in Israel, and the Western colonialists, and our jailers at Abu Ghraib and Gitmo, and so forth.

THE JETS surrendered two picks and three players to trade up and take Mark Sanchez fifth overall in 2009. He was the quarterback when the Jets went to the AFC title game his first two seasons. He earned a clever nickname. But the value of "The Sanchise" plunged in 2011 and 2012. He had a chance to rebuild his brand's equity this season as Nick Foles' replacement. That equity spiked early, but the specter of two tough, meaningful games loomed as better gauges of Sanchez's true value.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Juan Samuel stood beside first base to ensure Phillies players touched a blue spray-painted corner. The grounds crew colored each base on Ashburn and Schmidt Fields for a daily drill planned by manager Ryne Sandberg. This was not a punishment. The day's workouts start with the most basic of fundamentals - how to correctly run around the diamond - but the reception is positive. "Hey, it was great," a player told Sandberg. "It got us loose. " Sandberg hopes it accomplishes more than that.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Cole Hamels has been in Clearwater for a few weeks, but he has yet to throw off the mound after experiencing some arm soreness early this offseason. Hamels is healthy; he's just behind the majority of the pitchers in camp. But that's not to say he hasn't been working at perfecting his craft at the Carpenter Complex during the first 2 weeks of workouts. Hamels walked through a pickoff drill with a conga line-like group of fellow Phillies pitchers this week.

THE GUYS from Hip Hop Fundamentals don't look like the performers who used to show up at my school assemblies. They arrive in fly Kangol bucket-style hats and mock turtlenecks. On their feet, they rock Adidas Gazelle sneakers or Clyde Frazier basketball shoes, by Puma. And if I say they dance their butts off, I'm not exagerating. Trust me. These dudes can pop lock, head spin and floor rock with the best bboys around. Watching them perform on YouTube videos, I couldn't help but wonder why they aren't big stars doing their thing on VH1 or Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance" instead of leading school assemblies.
