What this story lacks in clarity, it makes up for it with its violations in "Journalism 101" -- the most-flagrant of which was the detail that Stanford players wore "CW" patches on their sleeves. We can only guess that the "CW" patch was a tribute to "Cathy Wolfe," the popular person who was also known as "Kathy Wolff." Since Keith Peters' name appears at the bottom of this story, is it safe to assume that this confusing and inaccurate report occurred on his watch? ++++ For those of us who authored the first, full-length sports feature story in the Palo Alto Weakling back in '93 -- and for those of us who spent many hours in the early '90s socializing with Kathy Wolff, this is the type of incomplete and amateurish reporting which does a disservice to someone of Kathy's professionalism and charisma. ++++ For the record, this story which incorrectly I.D.'ed "KW" patches as "CW" patches also failed to provide Kathy Wolff's age at the time of her untimely passing. Hopefully, Stanford's head baseball coach, Mark Marcus, will never see this ...
