If Darryl Strawberry is going to play again in New York, Yankees owner George Steinbrenner isn't ready to announce it. Yesterday, Steinbrenner said only that he and Strawberry's agent have talked. The Record of Hackensack, N.J., reported that Steinbrenner is expected to complete a deal with Strawberry, 33, the outfielder who is serving a 60-day suspension from baseball for testing positive for cocaine. The suspension ends June 24. Yankees general manager Gene Michael said he isn't involved in any talks between the onetime Met and Bill Goodstein, Strawberry's new agent.

When Darryl Strawberry strolled to the plate in the top of the sixth inning, a crowd of 47,744 at Shea Stadium stood and jeered. When he lined the first pitch he saw 396 feet over the left-centerfield fence, the jeers exploded into cheers, and suddenly - if but for a brief moment - it was 1986 again and Strawberry owned New York. Wearing a Dodgers uniform and sporting a .214 batting average, both of which fit him somewhat oddly, Strawberry returned to New York last night. While the crowd booed him whenever he popped out of the dugout and pelted him with strawberries, Strawberry expressed a lingering regret that he was "forced" to pursue free agency and leave New York.

WHEN KIARA Brooks and her teammates walk the halls of Strawberry Mansion High in their lacrosse uniforms, other students pepper them with questions. "They'll say, 'What?' or 'What's that?' " said Brooks, 16, a sophomore. "Sometimes they call it corny. " But she and her teammates are resilient. Having begun playing lacrosse in February, they've learned to keep their cool against opponents with much more experience, some of whom have taunted them, calling them "ghetto" or other insults, coach Jazmine Smith said.

The short: Fun, fast, feel-good musical boldly boosts big kids' confidence. The demo: Elementary school through junior high.
