She now waits to see if her score is one of the top four out of 30 competitions across the country. A Team Championship is held in each ma)or league ballpark and the top four scores keep going. Each participant earned a ticket to the June 20 Mariners game and was able to meet pitchers Cliff Lee and Justin Vargas before the game, getting autograph s from one. The Pitch, Hit & Run competition has been going for 14 consecutive years. More than 600,000 kids competed in it this year, making Millar already in the top 30. Jack Sheward, als0 from Arlington, placed in third in the 9/10 age group. GARCIA F.o..00E7 brothers were boxers at one point or another. Miguel, who was the last to get into the sport, happened to be the only one to stick with it. "I just didn't want to get left behind" said Miguel Garcia. "All my brothers were doing it and one-by- one, they just stopped" Hathaway, who trained all five brothers at the Arlington Boxing Club, said there is something special about Miguel that differen- tiates him from his siblings. "They all had great talent and potential" Hathaway said. "But Miguel's the only one to have the determina- tion to train every day and take it one step further." While working to get his AA degree, Garcia trains everyday in Arlington with .help of Hathaway and his most immediate older brother, Augustine, 24. As an amateur, Garcia had a 19-18 record, but fought a number of opponents with more experience, including a Canadian national cham- pion. He and Delgadillo made their pro debuts against each other nearly a year ago, with the outcome a draw. Garcia said that he has a tremendous amount of respect for Delgadillo. Garcia will look to gain his second career victory against Ralph Prescott at the Emerald Queen Aug. 28.

But some have gone beyond the more tradi- tional tactics with victo- rious results, such as the ironically named Team Green, whose members are easily spotted on the field by their simulated orange, road-worker style uniforms -- complete with reflectors on the edges. "Our thinking behind (the uniforms) is that we are safe at home with our safety shirts" said team spokesman Michael Deal of Marysville. Team Green moved to 2-0 with a 7-2 win over Das Boot, which was espe- cially rewarding, as the team didn't win a game all last summer. "I think our key is to have fun" Deal said. "When we do that, every- body kind of relaxes more and our confidence builds. But we're really just out here to have fun" On an adiacent field at Marysville-Pilchuck High School, team Kick Rocks is all business. "We take this very seri- ously," said team co-captain Chris Eddy of Arlington. "We're so serious that I don't have a job so I can concentrate on kickball" Kick Rocks, in its first year in the league, holds practice every Sunday. "We have our own field, I don't think many teams can say that, but it's an advantage,' said Kick Rocks' other co-captian and Eddy's sister, Kealin Walker of Arlington. Kick Rocks, made up of players from Mill Creek up through Arlington, defeat- ed AMT Kickball 13-6 to improve to 2-0. The league is in week two of the six week regular season schedule with the following two weeks for a single-elimination playoff.
