(( It was drizzling rain and snow when the small plane Senator Wellstone had chartered crashed . It missed the runway at a
small northeastern Minnesota airport by 7 miles. On board, his wife, daughter and 5 other close friends.

David Olsen/Wellstone Campaign Worker:
"My heart is just destroyed today. He's a great leader for the people of Minnesota."

And it was those people that 58-year-old Wellstone was hoping to represent again. He was in the midst of a grueling re-election campaign...just 11 days away from election day. He even spent THIS morning campaigning with Senator Ted Kennedy. Wellstone's staff calls this accident the unthinkable. JEFF BLODGETT/WELLSTONE CAMPAIGN MANAGER: "An unbelievable tragedy..on so many levels..we're all grieving."
Wellstone began his career as a teacher at a Minnesota college. He then ran for and won the senate race in 19-90. Ove

r the past 12 years, he's made a mark for himself as a staunch liberal who most recently opposed Bush's push for war on Iraq.
Bush "Paul Wellstone was a man of deep convictions, a plain spoken fellow who did his best for his state and for his country."
And his country is honoring his memory today. Minnesota's governor

echoed the sentiments of so many.
Governor Jesse Ventura (R)/Minnesota

I will forever bi indebted to him for his service and his ultimate sacrifice for this great democracy." Drew On Cam Close: Wellstone is survived by his two sons. HIs re-election was considered key to Democratic control of the Senate. Minnesota officials are now trying to decide if Wellstone's name should remain on the ballot.

Darren Baker, the 3-year-old son of manager Dusty Baker, nearly stole the show in Game Five when he narrowly avoided a collision at home plate.
J-T Snow was on third and David Bell was on second when Kenny Lofton hit a triple.
As Snow ran home and Bell rounded third base, the Giants first baseman realized that the youngster was standing on the plate, oblivious to the action around him.
Snow snatched him up and carried him out of the way.
Darren Baker was not hurt, but his Dad got a toungue lashing.
Dusty's mother called him immediately after the game to ask why her grandson was put in harm's way.
Still Darren is expected to make the trip to Anaheim.
The Giants are three and Oh in games he's worked.
