A federal judge allowed the family members holding 58 percent of Schmidt Baking Co. shares to assume four seats on a five-member company board yesterday, setting up a possible confrontation between two groups of the founders' descendants over the future of the 112-year-old Baltimore company.Pete Smith, a descendant who is chief executive officer and holds the other 42 percent of the shares, had controlled the company under a three-year voting trust that expired in January.At a court-ordered shareholders meeting yesterday, Smith sought to pre-empt the installation of the new directors -- by announcing his own moves: The expansion of the board from three to five members and the appointment of nonfamily members to the board.

Wild-card fever -- DOWN -- The Yankees were ruled out of the AL East race when they fell eight games behind the Orioles last July 4. A week away from Independence Day, the O's trailed wild-card leaders Boston and Texas by 10 1/2 and 9 1/2 games, respectively, going into yesterday. Do the math. Calculators optional.Pete Smith -- DOWN -- Career National Leaguer has pitched with leads in all three AL starts but averaged fewer than five innings. He has yet to claim a win and carries a 9.64 ERA.Doppler radar --DOWN -- The Orioles thought they had stolen a 5 1/2 -inning win Tuesday, but a supposed four-hour rain delay became an 86-minute bathroom break.
