CHRIS SMITH STILL REMEMbers the first time he toured Baltimore's Masonic Temple. It was 25 years ago and, as the new owner of a nearby apartment and office tower that he was converting to a hotel, he was invited to explore the mysterious palace built for the secret rites and ceremonies of Maryland's Freemasons. He marveled at the lavish Corinthian Room, with its coffered ceiling and marble balustrades; the ornate Oriental Room, with its geometric decorations and ogee-shaped windows; and the intimate Chapel, with its religious mural and medallions -- all exquisitely crafted, all reserved for members and guests of the intensely private fraternal organization.

The Orioles got the player they wanted yesterday when they selected power-hitting high school third baseman Bill Rowell with the ninth overall pick in baseball's amateur draft. Many scouts rated Rowell, a product of Bishop Eustace Prep in Pennsauken, N.J., as the best power bat in a draft that didn't have many elite offensive prospects. "We feel like it's a middle-of-the-order bat that's going to play a position where, at least in our organization, we don't have a lot of depth," said Orioles director of scouting Joe Jordan.

Midway through "American Movie," a filmmaker named Mark Borchardt and his girlfriend are watching the 1997 Oscars telecast. While Billy Crystal gives asinine lip-service to the "year of the independents," when "unusual films, risky plots, great direction" were the order of the day, Borchardt looks at the television uncomprehendingly, as if Crystal were speaking Urdu. It's difficult to imagine someone more independent and less a part of Crystal's universe than Mark Borchardt, the star and tenacious moral center of Chris Smith's giddily inspiring documentary.

No. 2 Howard put its home-field advantage to good use in beating No. 10 Calvert Hall in soccer last night, 2-1.The Lions (2-0), playing on a field much narrower than the 70-yard ones Calvert Hall (0-1) is used to, kept the action in the middle of the field where its strongest players were."It definitely was to our advantage to keep the action in the middle," Lions coach Rudy Storch said. "We're not as strong a team as last year, but despite missing a lot of opportunities, we didn't play badly tonight."

Coach of the YearJim Albert, Atholton: The Raiders entered the season as a talented but unproven team, especially at guard. They returned just one starter and were one of several teams thought to be capable of winning a county title. There was no clear favorite. Strong down the stretch, capturing 16 of 17 games and nine straight, the Raiders pulled away to win by three games over runner-up Long Reach. They had a 16-2 league record. Albert, the dean of county coaches in his 18th season, molded a starting team of three seniors and two juniors into a winner with his usual combination of up-tempo offense and pressing defense.

Left-hander Chris Smith, who didn't pitch last season while rehabilitating from shoulder surgery, threw in Wednesday's minor league spring training game in Sarasota, Fla. That's a start - and Smith hasn't made many of them since the Orioles took him with the seventh overall selection in the 2001 draft. Smith has appeared in only seven games, the last five in 2002 with Rookie-level Bluefield before undergoing surgery on his left rotator cuff. But club officials were encouraged last week.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - If Jose Leon is sitting on the bubble, at least it won't pop anytime soon. Regarded as a long shot to make the Orioles' 25-man roster, Leon's chances improved at least slightly after David Segui fractured his right thumb. Without naming any players, manager Mike Hargrove said Segui's injury "may allow us to take the utility infielder who was on the bubble." That could mean Jeff Reboulet, who has fallen behind John Valentin. But it also doesn't eliminate Leon, who's hitting .435 after going 1-for-2 with a stolen base yesterday.

The ink has dried on his contract. The Orioles' jersey, though maybe a size too small, has been presented to him. And he's been introduced to fans at Camden Yards. Chris Smith, the seventh overall pick in last week's amateur baseball draft, officially became an Oriole yesterday with his arrival in Baltimore. He was flanked by scouting director Tony DeMacio and vice president of baseball operations Syd Thrift during a brief news conference in the auxiliary clubhouse, the smile never leaving his face as he spoke of the opportunity presented to him. The fourth first-round selection to sign in the majors, Smith will spend at least a week at the minor-league camp in Sarasota, Fla., before reporting to lower Single-A Delmarva.

Oakland Mills always has been a tough place to play for visiting teams.No. 18-ranked Long Reach nearly found out exactly how tough last night before it squeezed out a 66-56 victory that wasted a 29-point scoring effort by the home team's Murray Graves.Midway through the third quarter, Oakland Mills trailed by 19 points. With 2: 23 left to play, that lead was cut to two points. Oakland Mills runs of 11-2 and 12-0, sandwiched around a 5-0 Long Reach run, produced a 56-54 game.Although the Lightning handled Oakland Mills' full-court press earlier in the game, Long Reach (6-3 overall, 5-0 league)
