“Ga-ga, ga-ga!” dozens of voices chanted Sunday, neither imitating a baby nor yelling for a pop star. Instead, the crowd in Fairview Avenue Brethren in Christ Church used “ga-ga, ga-ga!” to pump up enthusiasm during the game of the same name. Forty-eight participants ages 3 to 63 jumped into a makeshift ring to duke it out for a ga-ga tournament. Ga-ga is easier to say than it is to play. The game resembles dodgeball, except participants essentially slap the ball around with an open palm and try to eliminate opponents by driving that ball into their lower bodies.

CHAMBERSBURG, PA. ? The four D's of dodgeball ? dodge, duck, dip and dive ? were present Saturday as 20 corporate teams worked to avoid being struck by a sea of oncoming balls, and tried to eliminate as many opposing players as possible. The Chambersburg YMCA began having corporate dodgeball tournaments last year as a fundraiser for a new bus for the youth department, said Carla Christian, senior youth director at the Y. The youth department is the largest program at the Y, Christian said.

HAGERSTOWN - Ann Rotz ran to midcourt, grabbed a grapefruit-sized foam ball and backtracked - her eyes sizing up the opposition in a game of dodgeball. She aimed, pivoted quickly to avert an oncoming attack and fired. Then, she smiled. She hadn't had this much fun since grade school. And she did it while wearing a formal gown. Rotz was a member of Always a Bridesmaid, one of seven teams that participated in Saturday's amateur dodgeball tournament, sponsored by Girls Inc. of Washington County.

Landing Sammy Sosa is a home run for the Baltimore Orioles. Actually, Sosa should be worth at least 40 homers for the O's this season, maybe even 50 if he stays healthy - and uncorked. I've been an O's fan for a long time, and I can't remember them ever fielding a lineup quite like this one. Just think about it. Miguel Tejada led the major leagues in RBI last season with 150. Brian Roberts led the American League in doubles with 50. Melvin Mora was second in the AL in batting with his .340 average.

Pilots were not the only ones propelling objects through the air Saturday morning at Hagerstown Regional Airport. Players bent the metaphorical throttle on dodgeballs, sending them hurling across the field to wallop opposing team members. “It's fun to hit people,” player Ian Donnakay said. “Anybody will let you know it's fun to hit somebody as hard and you can. And the balls are soft enough to where none of us are getting really hurt.” It was people such as Donnakay, 30, of Greencastle, Pa., who Allegiant Airlines counted on when it unveiled its Dodge High Fares national advertising campaign.
