On Friday, there will be a pingpong tournament in Baltimore. It won't take place at an arena or a YMCA. It's at a bar. The pingpong tournament is one of the distinguishing features of Parkside Sports Bar and Pub, which opened in Canton late last year. Parkside is a sports bar with modest ambitions. Its casual setup and fairly small beer selection suggest it wants to just be a neighborhood hangout. But its size, its pool and pingpong tables, its gregarious bartenders and customers make it an upbeat place to watch a game - or play one - after work.

The Eastern Tech Mavericks saw Tuesday how fickle of a game baseball can be. After scoring six runs in the top of the fourth inning, the Mavericks surrendered 10 runs in the bottom half of the fourth and lost a Class 2A state semifinal game against Parkside, 10-6, at Arundel. Holding the Rams scoreless in the bottom of the sixth inning, Eastern Tech loaded the bases in the last frame before junior center fielder Nick McElfish's drive up the middle was handled by junior shortstop Tyler Illian, who then flipped to second for the final out. "This might be the team that I'm most proud of, with all that they've been through," Mavericks coach Spike McElfish said after the game, referring to a number of injuries endured by the team during the season.
