Sa-wing Batter

The natural high

FRI 3/25Lately it seems the only issue baseball fans want to talk about is steroids. With major-league players being summoned before the U.S. Congress to testify about the apparent unrestrained use of questionable body-building supplements, now is the perfect time to catch an unadulterated, wholesome game. Watch tomorrow's 'roid-ragers before they grow into versions of Jose Canseco when the UM Hurricanes take on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in a three-game series starting tonight at 7:00 at Mark Light Baseball Stadium, 6201 San Amaro Dr., Coral Gables. Tickets cost six and eight dollars. Call 1-800-462-2637. -- Kris Conesa

Skyward Bound

Seeing stars and getting mooned

SAT 3/26If you're looking for a date that is both cheap and romantic, give your mate the stars, the moon, and maybe even a planet or two. The Southern Cross Astros are out every Saturday evening (weather permitting) and invite fellow stargazers to take a peak at the planets (and stars) through their fancy telescopes. Tonight you'll see a just-past-full moon hanging out below Jupiter and next to Saturn, and the constellations Orion (with his dog Canis Major) and Gemini the Twins. You think you can't tell a planet from a star? Here's a hint: Planets don't twinkle like stars, so the glowing light is a giveaway. Everyone will be keeping their feet on the ground and looking up tonight from 8:00 to 10:00 at the outdoor observatory in Bill Sadowski Park, 17555 SW 79th Ave., Palmetto Bay. Pets and alcohol are prohibited, and be sure to turn down your car lights as you enter the park. Call 305-661-1375, or visit www.scas.org.

Diving for Ovoids

SUN 3/27This Easter Sunday you can either spend your day sweating and hunched over, searching for eggs under bushes in the blazing sun, or you can suit up and egg-splore where the Easter Bunny never would have thought to hide them before -- in the cool waters off the coast of Key Largo. At today's underwater Easter-egg hunt, divers who emerge from the water victorious will claim prizes courtesy of the bunny himself, Captain Spencer Slate. To prevent ecological harm, only real eggs are used. Meet at Captain Slate's Atlantis Dive Center, mile marker 106.5, oceanside in Key Largo. At 8:30 a.m. a boat will take egg-cited divers to a secret location on one of the Keys' egg-cologically vital reefs, where the hunt will begin. Today's dive costs $50, and proceeds are donated to needy children. Call 305-451-1325, or visit www.captainslate.com. -- Patrice Elizabeth Grell Yursik
