Prosecutors yesterday dropped a misdemeanor battery charge against Westminster High School football coach Jeff Oeming, saying the coach was "legally required to take action to maintain an atmosphere of order and discipline" when he pinned one of his players to the ground.The charge was lodged against the coach by star Owls receiver Micah Steven Shaffer a week after the incident occurred during a Labor Day practice session.The state's attorney's office concluded that the coach's conduct did not rise "to the level of criminal battery," according to a statement read in Carroll District Court by Assistant State's Attorney Erin Danz.

Almost everything about the case of the Jena 6 is a sad and troubling reminder of this nation's racially charged past and its still racially tense present. There was the initial request, about a year ago, by a black student to sit under a tree on the grounds of a high school in Jena, La., where white students tended to congregate. The next day, three nooses were left dangling on the tree. Three white students were suspended for two days. In December, six black schoolmates beat up a white student; they were initially charged with attempted murder.

DELTONA, Fla. - A veteran probation officer and three of his supervisors were fired yesterday as a result of a major failure of the state corrections system that missed several opportunities to put behind bars the suspected ringleader in the vicious beating and stabbing deaths of six people last week. Troy Victorino, 27, a felon with a long and violent criminal history, met with his probation officer Thursday, hours before investigators say Victorino and three 18-year-old friends used aluminum baseball bats to bludgeon to death the six people in a Deltona home Friday.

We've seen the future of baseball, and it's behind the plate. The future can run and hit for average and has enough pop in its bat to keep you honest. Most importantly, the future can call a game, settle a pitcher, throw out a runner and, with a polite smile, shove its shinguards down your throat. The future's name is Russell Martin, Joe Mauer, Brian McCann. Throw in Yadier Molina, the St. Louis Cardinals' injured "veteran," and you have four outstanding catchers all age 24 or younger.

The first player to greet Sean Douglass yesterday as he reached the edge of the Orioles' dugout was Rick Bauer, who moved to the top step with his hand clenched. They tapped fists, and Bauer jabbed at his friend's left leg as he passed. One gesture of approval wouldn't suffice, not after Douglass had been so magnificent. It was far easier to celebrate Douglass' achievements in his second major-league start. There weren't enough hands to cover the offense, which included the other half of a rookie battery that dictated the outcome.

MINNEAPOLIS - Expectations are a volatile commodity for the Orioles, a team too inexperienced to offer consistent form. Last night suggested a strong offensive showing would be necessary to fend off the Minnesota Twins. Starting pitcher Chuck McElroy was appearing two days after a relief appearance in Detroit and nine days since his previous start. But rather than engage in an offensive free-for-all, the Orioles took down the first-place Twins, 5-2, at the Metrodome because McElroy got 17 outs in 76 pitches and his catcher, Brook Fordyce, did more than call pitches by homering and doubling for the first three Orioles RBIs.
