When he walked into Memorial Stadium at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon, more than anything else Jim McKean wanted to say two words -- "play ball."Almost six hours later, at 8:45, the chief of the umpiring crew assigned to work the series between the Orioles and Boston Red Sox had no choice but to surrender to the elements.Last night's postponement, the second in a row for the Orioles and Red Sox, meant rescheduling a doubleheader this afternoon, on what was supposed to be an off-day for all concerned.

When Lucy McKean calls her home a lifelong labor of love, she speaks quite literally. "I grew up here," said McKean, 68, referring to the imposing Classic Revival house situated on a 3 1/2 -acre wooded tract near the Avalon Area of Patapsco Valley State Park in southwest Baltimore County. "My grandfather had this house built in 1905 [and] my father was an only son. I was the youngest child, with two older brothers, but the only one who wanted it," she said. For all but four years of her life - when she married in 1961 and moved away, to her return upon the death of her father in 1965 - "home" has been the 3,400-square-foot, cedar-shingled house with 13 large columns supporting a wraparound porch.

The Major League Baseball Umpires Association picked a strange time to declare labor war -- the day after an emotionally charged All-Star celebration cast baseball in an enormously positive light -- but veteran umpire Jim McKean defended Wednesday's decision by the union to take the offensive in its strained relationship with baseball ownership.The umpires announced that they would resign on Sept. 2 if their labor situation is not settled, a huge public relations gamble that could cost them any chance of garnering sympathy from the fans.

The first photographer presented in Gomez Gallery's new photography space, Dave McKean, gladly defies definition."I don't use the word 'artist' for myself, because it can box you in," the bearded, balding and bulky 33-year-old says while seated at the gallery, surrounded by his photographs. "I'm really into everything. I've been trying hard not to draw distinctions between what I do."Although the multi-talented McKean has exhibited his drawings, paintings, graphic designs and photographs widely in Europe, he has not had much gallery exposure in the United States.

SILVER SPRING -- Rozier Carter rushes into the Electric Shaver Shop of Maryland, a five-o'clock shadow on his face and a 1983 Remington in his hand. "I had a helluva time finding this place," he pants.Peering out from behind the counter, Charles A. McKean proclaims in a deadpan voice: "That's because there ain't no other place like this place."The Electric Shaver Shop, a sliver of a store at 8211 Fenton St. in downtown Silver Spring, is a specialty shop nonpareil. Mr. McKean and his daughter not only repair your shaver while you wait, but also display about 250 electric shavers dating to the early 1930s.

The pace was so brisk that plate umpire Jim McKean never had to concern himself with baseball's new speed-up rules yesterday.Umpires have been mandated to make pitchers throw within 12 seconds after a batter is set."Today, they were being implemented by the pitchers," McKean said after the Kansas City Royals' 4-1 victory over the Orioles in a snappy 2 hours, 38 minutes."All this starts on the mound, and if they are throwing strikes like they were today, you don't have any problems," McKean said.

A car thief was hospitalized with knife wounds yesterday after the vehicle's owner jumped into the car and -- in a fight -- caused it to careen across a sidewalk and hit a row of houses and a tree in West Baltimore. The owner was selling T-shirts and caps out of his mid-1990s Ford LTD in the 1600 block of McKean Ave. when a man jumped into the car and started to drive, city police said. The owner jumped in the vehicle and struggled with the driver. The car didn't go far before crashing in the same block of McKean.

Bob McKean has heard the complaints against the B-26 Marauder: that it was hard to handle, that its early design caused almost as many crashes as German fighters, that the war was really won by larger bombers.But he doesn't buy it. As U.S. Army Air Corps Staff Sgt. Bob "Mac" McKean he flew Marauders on 52 missions deep into Italy, France and Germany, taking out bridges, barracks and softening up opposition for advancing Allied troops."It was the best plane in the world," said McKean, now a 72-year-old retired International Business Machine Corp.

On the field: There was an Earl Weaver sighting in Baltimore yesterday, and naturally, there was umpire controversy in last night's game. Orioles center fielder Brady Anderson hit a high fly to deep right in the fourth inning. Danny Bautista leaped against the fence reaching for the ball, which, as the replay showed, bounced off the very top of the right-field fence. First base umpire Jim McKean, running out to the outfield, called a homer as Anderson raced around the bases, stopping at third.

In the opener of an Orioles series in Milwaukee this season, Cal Ripken had a question for umpire Dave Phillips."Davey, that mound appears high to me," Ripken said. "Is that something we can protest?""He was right," Phillips said. "I had thought to myself the pitcher's mound was too high."The point of the story is that he's just so aware of little things that most players would have no conception of. He notices things that a lot of guys don't."And American League umpires get to notice things about Ripken that a lot of people don't.
