LEADING OFF

Shell Game

Dolphins rookie defensive tackle Travis Ivey, an undrafted free agent out of Maryland, spoke with reporters after practice in Davie, Fla., on Aug. 1. The former Terrapin was shouldering his teammates' pads in a good-natured rookie hazing ritual.

Eye-Catcher

Cubs backstop Koyie Hill stared a pop fly into his mitt under the gaze of home plate umpire Mike Everitt last Saturday at Wrigley Field. Hill's catch retired the Reds' Paul Janish in the first inning of Cincinnati's 4--3 win.

Dive Bar

Diners plunged into their pasta as Steve Black of Australia practiced for the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series in Polignano a Mare on Italy's Adriatic coast last Thursday. The destination is popular with both pro and recreational divers, who leap from the private balconies that line the cove.
