ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- There is a book on Russ Morman. Before the Triple-A Classic is over, it will become required reading for the Rochester Red Wings pitchers.The Omaha first baseman sparked a ninth-inning rally last night with his fourth run batted in as the Royals rallied to defeat the Red Wings, 7-4, to even the Classic at a game apiece."We haven't made our pitches against him," Red Wings manager Greg Biagini said. "We've left pitches up over the plate. We haven't put them where we wanted to. He's a veteran player.

Even the man known as the world's greatest investor can't dodge the tough questions. And these days, some of them are coming from shareholders of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Thousands of shareholders descended on Omaha, Neb., April 29 to listen to company Chairman Warren Buffett talk about investing, and explain why Berkshire had such a bad year - its worst performance in 35 years. While most investors still support Buffett, he was roughed up by a shareholder who wondered if the guru of investing had lost touch with current trends.

It's a beautiful idea: Constellation Energy shareholders reject the emergency merger with Warren Buffett's MidAmerican Energy Holdings, retake control of their company and watch the stock head back upward. Baltimore gets to keep a Fortune 500 corporate headquarters. And Constellation shareholders beat the planet's greatest investor at his own game. It's not anything that big shareholders are counting on. For now, Buffett's deal is the only thing keeping Constellation stock from plunging even further than it has. But it's not impossible.

She's still the giggler who charmed as the sweetheart of the 1988 Seoul Games. But now, what has the 40-year-old Janet Evans laughing is her age -- or rather, that of her competition. "There was a 16-year-old," the three-time gold medalist said, her eyes widening at the youth of a swimmer two lanes over from her. She's "closer in age to Syd," she said, referring to her 5-year-old daughter. Evans, attempting an unlikely comeback after about 15 years away from competition, is not the only swimmer watching time pass before her eyes at the qualifying trials for the team that will go to the London Games.

Self-censorship, a negative cerebral habit that can damage the psyche, has been practiced by the human race since the beginning of time. Carried from one generation to another, these subconscious doubts that fill us with misgivings are the body leaks of the mind.Who are we? What are we? Why are we? Why do we do the things we do? These are the questions posed in the Omaha Magic Theatre's new avant-garde, experimental work, "Body Leaks," on stage tonight through Sunday at Towson State University.

It was the sixth consecutive win for the Blast (12-3), which can go a long way toward clinching the regular-season title Sunday by beating second-place Milwaukee. Baltimore leads the Wave, which plays the Chicago Riot on Saturday night, by a game. Omaha (7-10) didn't make it easy. It wasn't until veteran Pat Morris scored his second goal with less than four minutes remaining in regulation that the outcome was all but assured.

I am in heaven. I know I am part of a minority, but I love college baseball the way most folks love NCAA basketball. Forget the Final Four, the Road to Omaha is what gets my adrenaline pumping. And ESPN started the journey for viewers like me with an outstanding tournament selection show Monday at noon and a "Road to Omaha" production at 6 p.m. Both aired on ESPNU, the collegiate sports channel that my TV always seems to be set to when I turn it on during baseball season. ESPN has long done right by college baseball while much of the rest of the media world ignored it. But this year, ESPN is upping the ante in promising to cover every game from here on out among the 64 contenders for the national championship that will be decided at the College World Series in Omaha next month.
