Ronald Watkins was shot on Aug. 17, 1992 the same day that supporters and opponents of Odell's night club were readying to pack a hearing room at City Hall to testify on its request for a "dance hall" permit. There had been a rash of previous shootings and other crime outside the club, located at North Avenue and Charles Street, angering residents and zoning officials. Watkins' shooting, it would seem, was icing on the cake. But the club's owner, Milton Tillman Jr., and his attorney, Elijah Cummings, argued that he was being made a "scapegoat for the ills of society" and would leave city youth without enterainment options.

Billy O'Dell might be feeding the cows, or fishing for bass, or hunting the wild turkeys that scuttle about on the edge of his farm in South Carolina. Then it hits him. "I'll think, 'Did I really pitch against [Stan] Musial and [Willie] Mays and that crowd?' " O'Dell said. "'Was I really good enough to play with those guys?' "Sometimes it feels like a dream." The bronze plaque hanging on the wall of his den says otherwise: "Billy O'Dell, Baltimore Orioles, 1958 Major League All-Star Game Most Valuable Player.

Time expires with the blink of an eye but pleasant experiences along the way count for something on the scoreboard of life. Such relates to enjoying the Opening Day homecoming for Billy O'Dell, who was the Baltimore Orioles' first "bonus baby" when the team was refranchised in the American League 40 years ago.O'Dell was pursued by every team in the majors in 1954 while a standout at Clemson. The school's athletic director, Frank Howard, and coach Bob Smith didn't want to see the young left-handed pitcher leave while a junior but told him if the financial proposal was attractive it was in his best interests to sign.

Back then, in the grunge rock-and-gangsta rap-littered '90s, the idea of Mint Condition was dated. An organic, self-contained band in R&B? The days of Earth, Wind & Fire, Rufus and Chaka Khan, the Bar-Kays and Slave were long gone. Producer-driven New Jack Swing -- with its busy, jittery, sample-heavy concoctions -- ruled urban airwaves at the time, blurring the lines between rap and R&B. But in blew Mint Condition: a sextet from Minneapolis with a sleek, inviting sound, playing real instruments and writing heart-felt joints about "pretty brown eyes."

If you're a new novelist hungry for attention, it helps to mention embarrassing facts about yourself on the inside of the book jacket. Served time for a major felony? Be sure to include the name of the correctional facility. Suffered addiction or abuse? Don't forget to specify the number of years. First novelist Tawni O'Dell has so much personal information to confess that she's produced a three-page autobiographical statement to accompany review copies of "Back Roads" (Viking, 338 pages, $24.95)
