AS HOLLYWOOD expands the boundaries of its "summer" season, the spring box office heats up a little earlier each year. This year, Captain America and various X-Men arrive before the solstice and long before school is out, and blockbusters like "Godzilla" turn up on the schedule. There are some interesting imports and independents, as well. Here are a few to watch for: "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," April 4. Marvel-ous sequel has the title character (Chris Evans) teaming with Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson)

BRADENTON, Fla. - Cody Asche has warded off the competition from the Phillies' top prospect and will be the opening-day starter at third base. This is not a surprise, but it's now official, after 21-year-old Maikel Franco was reassigned to the Phillies minor-league camp on Saturday. When asked if the competition is over, Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg, responded: "Uh, yeah. " Franco, who combined for 31 home runs, 103 RBIs, and a .926 on-base-plus-slugging percentage at single-A Clearwater and double-A Reading last year, needed a spectacular spring to unseat Asche.

HERSHEY, Pa. - Sammy Stipa had been on the floor for every minute of the PIAA Class AAAA state championship game - 30-plus minutes, to be more specific. An absolute workhorse for the Spring-Ford girls' basketball team, she was planning on staying in for the rest of the contest, too - even though the Rams were trailing by 18. But then she banged knees with a Cumberland Valley player and went down. The senior guard has been playing with a torn meniscus in her left knee all season, and despite how much she wanted to stay in the contest, she knew she couldn't.
