ON THE MOVE: Steve Garrison displays his form in a practice during his stellar career with the Hun School baseball team. Garrison, who was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 10th round of the 2005 Major League Baseball Draft, was traded by the Brewers to the San Diego Padres organization last month. He is currently with the Lake Elsinore Storm of the Class-A California League where he was 1-1 with a 1.64 ERA through games of August 10.

Not many professional athletes get a second chance in the sports industry. This is especially true in professional baseball, where teams pick from a global talent pool and competition for spots on major league rosters is as cut throat as the most elite brokers on Wall Street.

Yet former Princeton University second-team All-Ivy catcher Tim Lahey is living proof that some players do, and he is making the most of his opportunity.

It started with an e-mail out of the blue in early 2005.

Unfulfilled by her day job working for a food supplier in Western Massachusetts, Theresa Sherry, a former women's lacrosse All-American for Princeton University, decided that she wanted to get back into the game.

Sherry e-mailed the Amherst College women's lax coach Chris Paradis, seeing if she could help out as a volunteer coach. Sherry's timing proved to be impeccable as Paradis responded by informing the gifted midfielder that preseason practice was starting that day and she was welcome to pitch in.

Last fall, Brig Walker focused on helping the Princeton University football team beat such foes as Harvard, Yale, and Penn.

The fleet, hard-hitting Walker, who earned second-team All-Ivy League recognition at linebacker, helped the Tigers achieve their goals as Princeton went 9-1 and tied Yale for the league crown.

Last month, Walker had his sights set on beating teams from Korea, Germany, and Japan as he played for the U.S. in the International Federation of American Football (IFAF) World Championship in Kawasaki, Japan.
