Across The Sky ran the approximately 3 1/4 miles in 6:05 2/5 seconds, an impressive time over ground softened by overnight rainfall, and he did it while virtually unchallenged under jockey K. Fritz Boniface.

If Baltimore had a hometown hero in the Maryland Hunt Cup on Saturday, it was Ned Halle.The 40-year-old lawyer didn't win the race -- he finished second to 22-year-old Sanna Neilson from Lewisville, Pa., on Tom Bob -- but he got a winner's ovation when he jumped off his horse Gesticulate in the unsaddling area.Halle doesn't pretend to be the world's greatest jockey. He admits he's strictly an amateur and rides just for fun.What's more, he didn't pay a small fortune for his horse. Gesticulate cost $1, even though he is sired by 1976 Preakness winner Elocutionist and had been a good winner in high-priced claimers.

Notre Dame doesn't buy lacrosse success I am very upset after reading Mike Preston's column published in the May 22 edition of The Sun. In particular, I have to disagree with the following portion: "As for Notre Dame, it was kind of strange hearing the band playing the school's fight song at a lacrosse game. "But with the athletic department revenues and other features of the school, the Fighting Irish showed you can almost buy a championship in any sport. "If you're a high school recruit and you visit Notre Dame or Johns Hopkins during the fall, would you be more inclined to enroll at Notre Dame after watching a football game against USC or watching Hopkins tangle with Western Maryland?"

There were a couple of days last week when "Fat Jack's" place in Easton, Pa., more closely resembled the legendary TV bar "Cheers" than just another sports hangout in small-town America.Thrust into the role of Sam Malone, as portrayed by Ted Danson so ably on the tube, was the owner of the establishment, Jack Fisher.First, ESPN's cameras were there reminiscing about the last days of Roger Maris' charge to supplant Babe Ruth as the all-time, one-season home run king, and Fisher played a significant role.
