The numbers - which will likely be recited often this week as baseball celebrates the 60th anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier - are troubling. Though 40.5 percent of major league baseball players on rosters last season were players of color, only 8.4 percent were African-Americans. That percentage has been steadily declining since 1975, when 28 percent of all major leaguers were African-American. But when you examine the reasons behind those numbers, it's even more troubling, according to those involved in the game at the grass-roots level in Baltimore.

Leverett disputed the call, then was given a technical. Seconds later, Leverett motioned to his team to leave the court."The first half, we were getting called for touch fouls, which I can accept, but then, kids were getting undercut," said Leverett, whose Sabers were Class 4A state champs last season.

Carlton Leverette, the endlessly inventive ceramic artist whose sources encompass the arts of Asia, Africa and the Pre-Columbian civilizations of the Americas, shows off his latest pieces in a charming exhibition at Galerie Francoise. The exquisitely glazed stoneware bowls, vessels and jars that have become Leverette's signature are again on view, but with a twist: The new work not only seems to incorporate such wildly diverse influences as calligraphy, Pre-Columbian art and graffiti but also (as if that weren't enough already)

AS MIKE Gimbel drives through the streets of Baltimore County, he says he sees pretty good signs up ahead. He's working on a new drug program for private schools. He's talking to the Archdiocese of Baltimore about some ideas. He's still getting love letters and phone calls from people who can't believe the thing that happened to him. He says he's doing fine. Baltimore County should be doing so well. Barely a month after Gimbel's firing as director of the county's Bureau of Substance Abuse, a job he created and then held for 23 years, the traffic ahead of him is pretty clear.

The distinction between art and craft has long been debated, and it is unlikely to be resolved as long as so-called "craftsmen" continue to create objects of surpassing beauty that transcend any utilitarian purpose. We have long since come to accept many functional objects, such as Chinese porcelain, Tiffany lamps, African masks, even Ferrari automobiles, as works of art in their own right, independent of the purpose for which they were created. A great deal of Asian art falls into this category, a reflection of both our appreciation for its exquisite workmanship and its philosophical relationship to traditional Eastern ideas about the value of simplicity, elegance and grace in even commonplace objects.

Coach of the YearTerry Leverett, Southwestern: In a city where much basketball success has been concentrated in East Baltimore, Leverett guided the West Baltimore school to a 27-0 record, the Class 4A state championship, and its first No. 1 ranking. With no player bigger than 6-foot-4 senior forward Bobby Gray, Southwestern did not have the most talent, but the Sabers compensated with hustle and determination. The Sabers' motto: "Refuse to lose." Always intense and animated on the sidelines, Leverett was able to put together a team that was greater than its individual parts.
