A large, two-alarm fire burned in an abandoned lacrosse ball factory in Kingsville on Monday afternoon, bringing between 80 and 100 firefighters to the scene, according to a Baltimore County fire spokesman. The old factory belonged to the Belko Corp., a rubber manufacturer, but has been abandoned for years, said Lt. Paul Massarelli, the spokesman. Fire personnel were first dispatched to the factory, near the intersection of Jericho Road and Woodberry Place in the Franklinville area, about 3:35 p.m., he said.

Cornell has placed its men's lacrosse team on temporary suspension and canceled all "fall ball" competitions pending an investigation into a hazing incident last Friday, the school said today in a statement. The penalty was due to allegations of "coerced consumption of alcohol by underage freshmen," according to multiple reports. According to LaxPower, the Big Red was scheduled to play the Iroquois Nationals on Sept. 29 in Cortland, N.Y., and in the Capital Lacrosse Classic in Bethesda on Oct. 13; the latter event is a fundraiser for the foundation honoring former Cornell player George Boiardi , who died after being struck in the chest by a lacrosse ball during a 2004 game against Binghamton.

ATTENTION, KIDS. This one's for you. School's out, and in addition to all the usual stuff - going away on vacation with your family, seeing "Shrek" and "Atlantis," going to camp or down the ocean, sucking up snowballs, reading books (you are reading books, right?) - you'll be looking for other things to do. Simple things. Cheap things. Things you can do without grownups - or with minimal involvement of grownups. So here. I've put together a list of stuff to get you through some of the slower days.

There's no way for an athlete of any age or sex to be overprotected, which is why Joan Haas is staging a commendable one-woman campaign to see that girls and women, playing lacrosse, are equipped with helmets. Their heads shouldn't be neglected, nor faces scarred and shattered.Boys and men wear headgears. The female of the species deserves nothing less than the same consideration. It's all for safety's sake, wanting to do what's best for a segment of the sport that blindly refuses to realize it's better to act now, before the fact, than after a serious or life-threatening injury has occurred.

*TC Just the thought of helmets flames the sensitivity of those involved in women's lacrosse."This is a women's game, and we resent men coming in and giving opinions on our game. It's not the same game," said Cathy Samaras of Annapolis, who is president of the Chesapeake Women's Lacrosse Association."Ours is a non-contact sport."The crux of the matter is that the women are adamantly opposed to helmets because they feel it would increase aggression and turn it into a contact sport like the boys.

A former football player at Westminster High died a week ago of complications from a traumatic neck injury suffered while practicing with his college lacrosse team, published reports said. Michael Christopher Sabo, 19, of Westminster, was struck in the neck by a lacrosse ball during fall practice Sept. 18 at King's College in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., according to the Wednesday edition of the Wilkes-Barre (Pa.) Times-Leader. The paper cited a Dauphin (Pa.) County coroner's report that said the impact ruptured the wall of Sabo's right carotid artery, leading to a blood clot that later traveled into Sabo's brain, causing a stroke.

Lacrosse was still developing at that time and his club had inferior supplies. "I fell in love with it," said Hess. "I knew it was my sport. I quit all the other sports I played like basketball and soccer to concentrate on lacrosse." Two months before the 1994 World Games was the first time heactually touched a real lacrosse ball.

I was in the middle of getting the air out of the house water pipes, when one of my kids wanted me to play catch with him in the alley.Getting the air hammer or "bang" out of the pipes turned out to be pretty easy. I shut the main water feed off, then opened one cold water faucet on the third floor, the highest point in our house. Next I turned on another faucet in the basement sink, the lowest point in our plumbing system. This drained all the water out of the pipes. Finally I closed both faucets, and turned the main water feed back on. It worked.

They played through falling snowflakes so thick that visibility was hampered. They played through the sloppy conditions of Walbrook's stadium field that made scooping a lacrosse ball, let alone maintaining one's footing, nearly impossible. In the end, however, the boys lacrosse teams of Walbrook and Forest Park couldn't play through their flaring tempers. Game officials dished out 14 penalties - including two separate three-minute unsportsmanlike conduct infractions against Forest Park - before calling yesterday's Baltimore City A Division boys lacrosse game with 2:50 left in the third period and Walbrook ahead 10-2.
