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, MoroleĆ³n. "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.

It was a dark day for Pete Mackanin. The Phillies had just finished a disappointing season with a .500 record, ending a run of five straight National League East titles. The misguided initial blame for the fantastic fall was placed on hitting coach Greg Gross, first base coach Sam Perlozzo and Mackanin, who was Charlie Manuel's bench coach that season. All three were immediately fired after the final game of the 2012 season in Washington. "It was disappointing, but I had been fired before for what I felt like was no good reason," Mackanin said last month during a Phillies winter banquet stop in Lakewood, N.J. Stick around baseball for 48 years and you are bound to be fired a time or two for no good reason.

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.

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.

LOS ANGELES - Aaron Altherr has started just eight major-league games in center field, but that is enough for Pete Mackanin to know what he has. And, soon, it could be enough to move Odubel Herrera to a corner spot. That shift is no secret; the Phillies had considered bumping Herrera, a converted infielder, last spring to allow Peter Bourjos to roam center. But the team did not want to mess with Herrera's unexpected success by adding a new wrinkle to his big-league life. Most advanced defensive metrics peg Herrera as an average centerfielder.

In May 1979, Domenic Giancaterino Jr. decided to make his two-person engagement dinner to Evelyn Edgerly special, the way a jeweler such as he might. Before leaving for a South Philadelphia restaurant, "I gave her a ring that I knew she would not like," too insignificant, he said. But by the time they arrived at the restaurant, he recalled, "she had talked herself into liking it. " While having a drink before dinner, she put the ring onto a drink's olive, to show it off to him. But, Giancaterino said, he took the olive and "pulled out the real ring, put it on the olive, and gave it back to her - a carat-and-a-half round diamond.

Otis C. Hicks was a strong-enough basketball center at Pennsauken High School that in his three-year varsity career, he scored more than 1,000 points, his brother Laverne said. Because Laverne Hicks had to repeat a year in elementary school, he played on the same basketball team with his younger brother, until he and Otis graduated in 1976. "He was always a leader, a guy you looked up to, a guy who took control," he said. On Thursday, July 21, Mr. Hicks, 58, of Pennsauken, a former restaurant manager, died of kidney disease at Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center in Camden.
