Maybe this time, pitcher Juan Figueroa will be ready to take the next step without falling. The Orioles are watching his footwork just as closely as his arm. Figueroa, part of the four-player package obtained by the Orioles in their 2000 roster purge, received another promotion to Double-A Bowie last week. Once again, Single-A batters proved no match for him. Once again, he has been challenged to continue such mastery at a higher level. The Dominican native was named Pitcher of the Week in the Carolina League for July 11-17 after tossing eight shutout innings against Winston-Salem - leaving him 4-0 with a 1.24 ERA in a span of four starts.

Penalties proved to be the Blast's best friends last night in a crucial victory that ended a two-game losing streak at 1st Mariner Arena. Two power-play goals and another score just after a penalty had expired doomed the California Cougars, 8-6, before 6,830. The Cougars, last in the Major Indoor Soccer League with a 5-11 record, were cited for eight infractions to none for the Blast, which had dropped six of its previous seven games. Still, the Blast (6-8) had to hold on at the finish after California pulled its goalkeeper with less than four minutes to play and Vicente Figueroa trimmed the Blast lead to two points with 1:19 remaining.

Baltimoreans remembering last winter's icy precipitation may have let the colder temperatures that arrived with the new year blot out the more recent memory of the city's first snowless December in 16 years.Forecasters said yesterday that there was about a 20 percent chance of light snow showers or flurries tonight in Western Maryland or north along the Pennsylvania border, but that Baltimore was unlikely to see any of that type of precipitation. "It looks like we might get some rain Saturday, as temperatures rise into the 40s, but in wintertime we never say there is no possibility of snow," said forecaster Amet Figueroa.

Marylanders may witness a rarity today -- an April snowstorm.Weather forecasters last night were predicting an overnight snowstorm that could leave accumulations of 3 to 6 inches by morning. The snow is expected to taper off to flurries or drizzle by the afternoon, although an additional inch or two of accumulation is possible before it ends.Snow in Maryland is not unheard of in April or even in May but it's usually just a few flakes. On April 9, 1985, almost an inch of snow fell on Baltimore and flurries were recorded May 1, 1963, and May 6 and 11, 1951, according to records kept by the National Weather Service at Baltimore-Washington International Airport.

STOCKTON, Calif. -- The road remained unkind to the Blast last night. The Blast ended its three-match road trip winless, this time falling to the California Cougars for the first time all season. The Blast could not stop Vicente Figueroa all night, as he scored four goals and lead California to an 8-6 victory before 3,587 at Stockton Arena. It was California's fourth consecutive victory. The Blast had lost its previous two matches in Philadelphia and Milwaukee. Figueroa found gaps in the Blast's defense all match and put the ball in the net virtually every time he had a chance.

It's difficult to view the photographs of Alberto Korda and Jose Figueroa at C. Grimaldis Gallery outside the context of the Cuban revolution and its aftermath. Korda was for many years a sort of official photographer of the revolution and a privileged member of Cuban leader Fidel Castro's personal entourage. The photographs he took of the Cuban leader and his associates during the first years after the revolution are masterful propaganda; in them, the benevolent dictator presides over the grateful masses.
