Mrs. Bacon, whose son John is
a catcher, believes America's
familiarity with the game of
baseball eliminates the pressure
by parents on young players.
"THEY KNOW t h e i r kids
won't be m a k i n g the big
leagues, where in hockey or
football you might think of them
playing it at the college level,"
she said.
A few parents agreed that in
the long run that what they tell
a child will have little outcome
in how they swing their bat or
stand at the plate. "I don't
think they listen to us for better
or for worse," one mother said
light heartedly.
Still the parents cheer the
children on. Shouts of "Straight-
en it out Billy" or "Run, Doug
run" ring in the ears of the
young players during the games.
"I NEVER really got into
baseball before but watching
Dan play I'm beginning to enjoy
the game very much. I'm even
beginning to enjoy professional
games," Mrs. Pettit said.
And there is a humorou' side.
"Don't slide -- I j u s t washed

beleagured mother,
In the stands mothers and
fathers often compare ways to
whiten and brighten the easily-

television commercial, the chil-

The mother of Chris, the
catcher lamented, "I just wish
he would notice how clean the
rest of his clothes are."

player but the players do like
their uniforms. One team even

"THE KIDS just love any-
thing that's official-a hat, a
belt-especially a t-shirt," Mr.
Bacon said.
A batting helmet is also part:
of the uniform and the coaches
do the best to remind the play-
ers to keep this protective de-
vice on. One coach, in his final
words before the game, said,
"Don't take the batting helmet
off on your way to first base.
That's an error. We almost got
burned on that last week."

"This is more casual. Little

Peggy Hiss said.
This year approximately 2000
boys and girls are participating
in AARB. According to Larry
Dishman of Ann Arbor's recrea-
tion department, more children
are involved than last year.
There is a fee for the AARB
program that covers the cost of
the uniforms but that doesn't
stop many youngsters from play-
ing, "Every kid who wants to
play with a team can-I don't
think we turned any away,"
Dishman said.

in front of the bank.
The bank declined to disclose
the exact amount of money
taken. Ouimet said it was "un-
der $200."
Seconds after the man reach-
ed his car, the device concealed
in the money exploded, cover-
ing him with red dye, and'emit-
ting tear gas. The car then
crashed into a Michigan Bell
van, also parked in front of the
bank, according to the police.
The man fled from his car,
leaving the money behind,
"MONEY MUST have been
flying when he got out of that
car," one of the police officers
on the scene said.
The suspect was apprehended

at his residence on Chelsea
"They (police) almost beat
him to his house," said Ouimet.
The man in custody is also a
suspect in other robberies. Po-
lice are trying to obtain a war-
rant to search his home for
other stolen items they suspect
may be located there.
"WE KNOW he had been stak-
ing us out," said Ouimet. "He'd
done other similar robberies
from what I gathered."
Several attempts have been
made to rob the bank before,
but according to Ouimet, "This
was the first time anyone got
money out the door, and he
didn't get very far."
The bank recovered all the
