Two women from the Brooklyn area of South Baltimore were sentenced Wednesday to time served for second-degree assault in a triple stabbing last year in Federal Hill that sent one victim to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center with seven stab wounds. Prosecutors said that the alcohol-fueled melee involved so many people that the victims, some of whom had blood alcohol levels more than double the legal limit, couldn't be sure who stabbed them. "No one can really say with any level of certainty who started what, who was with whom, who had any weapons, and which fight - of several that were occurring around the street - was which," according to Joseph Sviatko, a spokesman for the Baltimore state's attorney's office.

Franklin coach Larry Meekins believes it's not a coincidence that the number of outstanding pitchers in the metro area is at a high point as more and more high school pitchers seek personal instruction and strength training in the offseason. Meekins, who serves as a pitching coach at former Oriole Larry Sheets' Players School and Clinic in Westminster, said he is amazed at the number of parents who are seeking personal instruction for their kids. "When I started with Larry seven to eight years ago, I thought it might not be worth it for kids to get the extra personal instruction, but I was wrong," said Meekins, an All-Metro pitcher at Franklin in 1970 who went on to pitch at Clemson and in the minor leagues.
