Instead of the traditional Mother's Day gifts - flowers, jewelry, spa days - two Pennsylvania moms have other things in mind: a pair of legs, a motorized track wheelchair, or wounds that heal. Stacy Fidler and Julie Keys are proud moms of wounded warriors. For them, Mother's Day is a time to celebrate their sons' sacrifices, and their solidarity within a group of unexpected heroes themselves. On Oct. 3, 2011, Lance Cpl. Mark Fidler was on foot patrol in Sangin, Afghanistan, with a belt of live grenades strapped to his waist, when he stepped on an IED. The blast blew off both of his legs above the knee.

It has been a roller-coaster week for Methacton's baseball team. The Warriors opened a key three-game Pioneer Athletic Conference stretch with a win over Division I-bound righthander A.J. Bogucki and Boyertown. Then, in a big letdown, they fell to Perkiomen Valley. Friday afternoon in Worcester, scoring three runs in each of their last two at-bats, catcher Clayton Harwick and company closed with an 11-7 triumph over fellow title contender Spring-Ford. "It's been pretty wild this season," Harwick said.

But he had to go on. And he did. The 25-year-old from Juniata Park turned in an inspiring performance en route to a unanimous 12-round decision over Zab Judah at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. Garcia (26-0, 16 knockouts) scored a crucial eighth-round knockdown and held on as the 35-year-old Judah desperately sought a knockout.

ANTONIO HARRIS lives on South Ringgold Street, little more than a mile from Citizens Bank Park, and his favorite sport is baseball. So, maybe he can tell some stories about brushes with famous Phillies. Securing an autograph from Ryan Howard. Being tossed a batting-practice ball by Roy Halladay. Dancing on top of the dugout with the Phillie Phanatic. Um, not quite. "My favorite team is the Yankees," Harris said. Yankees?! Seriously?! Should we end this story now?!
