Seeing few black players at the top levels, the sport banks on youth programs.
Hubert Mizell
(Trail)blaze of glory for Venus
WIMBLEDON, England -- Golf has Tiger Woods, history's most lopsided winner of the Masters and U.S. Open; now tennis doubles up with Venus and Serena Williams.

Devil Rays
Marlins stumble over Rays
Tampa Bay fails to capitalize on four Florida errors, walking in the winning run in a 6-5 loss.

Rupe set to pitch today vs. Marlins
MIAMI -- Ryan Rupe will rejoin the Devil Rays and pitch today's first-half finale against the Marlins.

McGriff an All-Star, but MVP is in bullpen
MIAMI -- It doesn't quite rank among life's greater mysteries, such as the tree falling in the forest, the chicken-and-egg debate, or the search for unrequited love, but it is worth asking:

Rays tales: Midseason review
It was bad, but it wasn't all bad. Having begun the season amid great expectations, the Devil Rays reach the unofficial halfway point today with the worst record in the American League.

Storm
Sickening loss for Kaleo, Storm
Stomach virus sidelines QB for a quarter; Tampa Bay loses 62-52, missing shot to clinch a playoff spot.

Mutiny
Mutiny trounced 6-2 in exhibition
TAMPA -- The Mutiny played an international friendly against the Colombian Millonarios on Saturday at Pepin/Rood Stadium and couldn't have been more, well, friendly. The Mutiny gave up four first-half goals in a 6-2 loss in front of 2,192.

Baseball
Dealer's countdown
Brad Radke has signed a new deal and Mike Mussina has announced he will not waive his no-trade rights.

Hey, what about those Cardinals?
Everyone agrees the White Sox are the surprise team for the first half of 2000. Chicago finished 11 games under .500 last season and is running away with the AL Central.

Golf

Outdoors
Look out for Jewfish
Anglers up and down the coast are catching jewfish, the grandaddy of the grouper family, with regularity. The species, which can be found from Florida to Brazil, is protected in state and federal waters. But researchers have found these fish are showing signs of resurgence in local areas.

Captain's corner
The middle of the summer fishing season is my favorite time. Weather patterns are predictable, which allows fishermen to safely run offshore 50 to 70 miles. The regular afternoon sea breeze does not affect the water offshore.

Female anglers grow in numbers
Statistics show fishing is the fastest growing participation sport in the country and most new anglers are women.

Walsingham Lake is great for the kids
With most youngsters out of school for summer, what could be better than taking them to a freshwater lake or pond to spend a few hours fishing?

Olympics
Edwards sticks to her principles
Teresa Edwards has made a career out of playing basketball, though lately she has not made any money playing the game.

College football
Snell brothers are looking to make impact for Gators
Look on Florida Field this fall and you might see Shannon Snell opening up holes for his brother Ray.

Et cetera
Local tournaments are in full swing

It was a busy week for the Little Leaguers with all-star tournaments under way.
