In the February chill of 1975, a 15-year-old boy left his home in the Mexican state of Guanajuato, slipped illegally across the border at Yuma, Ariz., and boarded a plane for Philadelphia. Along with two older friends who joined him, Isidro Rodriguez was headed for snowbound Kennett Square. The promise of big money from working the mushroom farms there was the talk of their little city, Moroleón. "But it was a lie - and I didn't like it," recalls Rodriguez, who found hundreds of migrant workers from his town already toiling there in the dark, smelly, windowless cinder-block buildings for $1.85 an hour.

CHICAGO - Davey Johnson was named manager of the Washington Nationals on Sunday, three days after Jim Riggleman stunned the team by resigning. Johnson will manage the rest of the season and his first game will be Monday against the Los Angeles Angels. He has been a senior adviser with the team since 2009, though he hasn't managed in the big leagues since 2000 with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Johnson also agreed to a three-year consulting contract through 2013 that will allow him to remain with the team and help select a successor for next season.

By Paul Jablow It would be a nightmare Rotisserie league lineup: Tony La Russa and Ron Washington as the double-play combination, Terry Francona at first, Joe Girardi behind the plate, and Charlie Manuel, with his .198 big-league batting average, alongside Ron Roenicke in the outfield. These guys - all marginal major-league players at best - were heading six of the 10 teams in contention for the playoffs in the final days of the baseball season. Three other top teams were led by managers who never made the majors.

Chris Stamp, 70, who as a cockney kid from East London aspired to make a documentary film about the rise of British rock in the 1960s and ended up helping discover and manage a raucous working-class quartet called The Who, died Nov. 24 in Manhattan. The cause was complications of colorectal cancer, his wife, Calixte, said. "I was knocked out," Mr. Stamp recalled in 1966 of the night he first saw The Who perform in 1964. "But the excitement I felt wasn't coming from the group. I couldn't get near enough.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - There are more than a few Alabama folks who will tell you that junior AJ McCarron could be the best quarterback the Crimson Tide has had since, dare we say, Joe Namath. With apologies to Richard Todd (or was that Jay Barker?), that was nearly half a century ago. Yet when most people think about the defending national champions, the passing game probably isn't the first thing that comes to mind. Maybe it's defense, even if this one isn't Nick Saban's strongest.

But the Phillies are not fully certain who their manager will be against the Braves. President Pat Gillick said Monday that interim manager Pete Mackanin will manage the remainder of this week's four-game series against Milwaukee.

A position in the Camden County Jail that has faced high turnover will be filled on an interim level this month, making that person who fills it the sixth jail population manager since 2011. The move comes amid a vacancy in the position and a letter from U.S. District Judge Jerome Simandle, who told county officials on Jan. 26 that he was "very concerned" about the turnover. The jail population manager focuses on how inmates are processed, from arrest to court date, and makes recommendations on how to improve their movement in the system.

DeMarco Murray's on-again, off-again practice schedule is not his decision. It's Chip Kelly's decision. Kelly made that clear on Friday, when he said he's trying to manage Murray's workload after the high-priced running back led the NFL in carries last season. Kelly said Murray is not injured. "He's coming along," Kelly said. "He's done a lot of different things. We're trying to get him acclimated. He also carried the ball more than anybody in the National Football League last year, so we are trying to integrate him into what we are doing.

ATLANTIC CITY - Mayor Don Guardian said Tuesday that Gov. Christie may be weighing two objections from the city's emergency manager to the languishing legislation to rescue Atlantic City's finances, including whether casinos should be paying the city at a higher level for a longer period. His comments came as officials tried to figure out why Christie notably left untouched the package of bills addressing Atlantic City's crisis, which has been sitting on his desk since June, despite taking action on dozens of other bills Monday.

In most Philadelphia neighborhoods, two recent zoning cases would have been treated as routine proposals. One called for 22 rowhouses to rise from the rubble of a crumbling factory. The other sought permission to turn a trash-strewn lot into a summertime beer garden. But in Point Breeze, a zoning case is never just about zoning. And so the two proposals followed the usual script. There were angry meetings where the projects were denounced as accelerators of gentrification, and their developers vilified for "not giving back" to the community.

Pete Mackanin returned to his hotel room in Maracaibo, Venezuela, in 1988. He was managing a team in the winter league and was stewing about a late-season loss. The Phillies interim manager said he "was really going off. " "Then my wife said, 'Are you going to have a heart attack over this? What are you doing?' " Mackanin said. "And it stuck with me. I said, 'You know what? I'm not going to have a heart attack over this. We're either going to win or lose. When I bring in the closer, he's either going to pitch well or he's not going to pitch well.' There's nothing else I can do about it. " Mackanin said that night changed his outlook on baseball.
