Later deadlines for latest scores SPORTS

September 18, 1995

In Sports, we have moved our deadlines back a full hour to give readers more late-night scores. Otherwise, you'll find what you've come to expect from The Sun - thorough coverage of professional, college and high school sports, and the best coverage of baseball and the Orioles anywhere.

Here's what to look for:

* A new front-page scoreboard and index to provide, at a glance, yesterday's results from major league sports, the Top 25 college teams, selected area high schools, and such local teams as the Stallions, Bandits and Spirit.

* A new Page 2 package featuring Milton Kent's Monday-through-Friday radio and TV column, a digest that offers a quick read on sports news, and an easier-to-read list of transactions involving sports franchises.

* A new format for statistical information throughout the section - box scores, standings and results - that makes them easier to read.

Readers also can look forward to these regular features:

* Buster Olney, who covers the Orioles' every move during the week, offers his insights on the rest of the league every Sunday in Buster on Baseball.

* Vito Stellino gets readers ready for a Sunday afternoon of football with his analysis of the week's games and reports from around the league in his column On the NFL.

* Peter Baker explores the great outdoors, everything from where the bluefish are running to the debate over goose hunting, every Thursday and Sunday.

* On Fridays, readers will find a full page of news about the NBA,

NHL, CFL and national college football, featuring notebooks by Jerry Bembry, Sandra McKee, Gary Lambrecht, Ken Murray and Paul McMullen.

* Roch Eric Kubato's area college notebook will appear on Saturdays.


Sports columnists are different from their counterparts elsewhere in the newspaper in one key respect.

Their schedules aren't set as much by the days of the week they appear as it is by what's happening on the field.

* Ken Rosenthal: Nobody ever accused Ken Rosenthal of being afraid to say what he thinks. His no-holds-barred commentary appears three times a week - Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, or whenever the action dictates.

* John Eisenberg: More reflective than acerbic, John Eisenberg offers a thought-provoking look at sports on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, or as events merit.

* John Steadman: Nobody knows or appreciates sports history - especially in Baltimore - better than veteran columnist John Steadman, who writes Sunday on Page 2.

What's missing: Bill Tanton and Phil Jackman, who had been columnists for The Evening Sun, will be reporting for the sports section.
