Joey Fariello, an uncommonly honest boxing trainer who handled Buster Mathis Jr. in his fight with Mike Tyson at the Spectrum on Dec. 16, died Wednesday. Fariello, who suffered a stroke at his New York home on Christmas Eve, was 58. In the days leading to the Tyson fight, which Mathis lost on a third-round knockout, Fariello was stubbornly protective of the young fighter, defending his character and responding vigorously to criticism that Mathis did not belong in the same ring with Tyson.

Phillies assistant athletic trainer Mark Andersen shares his favorite memory from the team's 2008 World Series championship season. "It has to be the parade," he said. "I was on a float with my wife [Vickie] and daughter [Rachel, 16]. I remember going down Broad Street and looking down the side streets and being amazed at how the crowds of people stretched two or three blocks down. "I'll never forget it. " Andersen laughed. "My daughter picked out five or six of her friends in the crowd," he said.

Legal sparring is expected today on a move by Barry Bonds' personal trainer to retest suspected steroids taken from his property. The hearing in federal court in San Francisco will focus on a bid by attorneys for trainer Greg Anderson to do their own chemical analysis of materials seized from Anderson's apartment and car during a raid by federal agents last September. Fans in Fenway Park's center-field bleachers yesterday afternoon wore dark green T-shirts - given to them by the Red Sox - that blended in with the dark green seats.

Saying "I've had it," trainer Richie Giachetti announced yesterday he is no longer in Tony Tubbs's corner. "I can't be connected with a guy who doesn't want to work," said Giachetti, who trained Larry Holmes and was one of several handlers preparing Tubbs for his Monday night bout with heavyweight champion Mike Tyson. In explaining his decision, Giachetti said he doesn't expect Tubbs to weigh in at less than 245 pounds. "Tony has all the talent in the world," Giachetti said, "but he doesn't want to do any work.

Mike McCormick has resigned as the trainer of the 76ers, the team announced yesterday. McCormick was hired a week ago to replace Al Domenico, who retired after last season. But McCormick did not feel comfortable in his new position and has returned to DePaul University, where he served as the director of sports medicine and basketball trainer since 1979. "He apparently just got homesick for DePaul and decided he'd be happier there," said Sixers general manager John Nash. Nash said the Sixers have hired a new trainer, but will not announce who it is until next week.

Billy Wagner tried Jeff Cooper's plan and it didn't work. So Wagner went on his own. The Phillies closer has been at odds recently with Cooper, who has been a Phillies trainer since 1976. Wagner, on the disabled list with a strained left groin, ditched Cooper's rehab program and returned to the one he used with the Houston Astros. "It's probably because I'm so competitive and he's so laid back," Wagner said of his differences with Cooper. "I believe in going in and working and getting it done and getting on the field.

Don't look now, but the most sought after person in the Cincinnati Reds' organization isn't owner Marge Schott or manager Pete Rose. It's Larry Starr. No, he's not Sally's younger brother, although in Cincinnati he's just as popular these days as our gal Sal was in her Philly heyday. Starr is the team's trainer, the man whose job it is to tape and scrape up nine able-bodied men to take the field each day. It's not an easy task under the best of circumstances, but it's almost impossible when you work for a team like Cincinnati.

Charles Barkley, who for weeks has said he hopes to come out of retirement to join the Washington Wizards alongside Michael Jordan next season, is working with one of Jordan's trainers to get into shape for a possible return, two sources told the Washington Post yesterday. Barkley - the former 76ers star who retired last season from the Houston Rockets after missing most of the year with a severe left quadriceps injury - could not be reached for comment. Jim O'Brien will remain as coach of the Boston Celtics, a move that was expected after he led the team's late-season bid for a playoff berth.

EAGLES ROOKIES and select vets don't report to NovaCare until July 25, but 14 Birds convened last week in San Diego, under the auspices of trainer Todd Durkin. Durkin is the fulltime offseason fitness guide for a number of NFL players, including Eagles running back Darren Sproles, who still looks quite spry at age 33. All three Eagles quarterbacks - Sam Bradford, Carson Wentz and Chase Daniel - attended the daily workouts, which began on July 4 and went heaviest through the 5th and 6th, with some players leaving the 7th, before the rest of the group finished up the next day. Durkin, speaking via phone minutes after the last Eagle left his Fitness Quest 10 facility, said that despite the scenic locale, it was a hard-work week.

JOHN SERVIS was notified in early May that one of the horses he trains at Parx Racing came back positive for the prohibited medication Clenbuterol. Horses can train with it legally, but not race with it still in their systems. Typically, 2 weeks is enough withdrawal time. Hearty Jones had, in fact, been given Clenbuterol, but it was more than 2 weeks prior to her April 4 win. The medication acts as a bronchodilator and helps build muscle. Servis was told a minute amount was found in the test and he thought it might end up being nothing.

After years of appeals and court battles - including a civil-rights suit - the Delaware County tax board has ruled that a church in tiny Trainer Borough will not have to pay real estate levies. The Board of Assessment found Monday that two parcels in the Church of the Overcomer complex that carried nearly $10,000 in annual tax bills qualified for exemptions, effective Jan. 1. "I've spent a decade of my life fighting for this cause," said Pastor Keith Collins, adding that the dispute "should never have happened.

Delta Air Lines said Wednesday that its refinery in Trainer, Delaware County, posted a $106 million profit in the third quarter, compared with $19 million a year ago. "Our total fuel expense declined by over $1 billion in the quarter as lower market fuel prices more than offset higher consumption," chief financial officer Paul Jacobson said in a conference call on the company's earnings. Lower crude-oil costs and increased production helped boost the refinery's profit, Jacobson said.

Sosa, from Camden, and Rodriguez were scheduled to go six rounds at 135 pounds on a card in September 2012 at Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem, but a technicality reduced the fight to four rounds. "We knocked him down in the fourth," Sosa recalled. "I would have finished him off if it went six. " Since that fight, Sosa, (17-1-3, 13 knockouts) has built up a head of steam, recording 12 straight knockouts.
