Baseball's realignment committee yesterday stopped short of making a formal recommendation on how to reshape the game but is apparently guided by a philosophy of more is better.Hoping to implement a new setup for next season, commissioner Bud Selig reiterated his desire for "significant realignment" after emerging from a five-hour meeting in Minneapolis. That arrangement reportedly calls for one league to include 16 teams and the other to include 14 with a heavily unbalanced schedule enacted, ostensibly to help foster rivalries and decrease travel.

Two state officials presented diverging updates to lawmakers yesterday on Maryland's preparation for the military job influx, with one reminding about demands that lie ahead - from school construction to housing - while the other offered reassurance about the logistics of accommodating tens of thousands of new jobs. Planning Secretary Audrey E. Scott said her agency is trying to answer fundamental questions that have arisen since the national military realignment was approved in November, such as who's coming, where they will live, and how they will get to work.

After one season, the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association is again realigning its football leagues, this time into three separate divisions consisting of five teams each. This fall's format lasted only one season. The old format had Gilman, Calvert Hall, Mount St. Joseph and Loyola in A Conference. The B Conference teams were split into two divisions, the Silver and Gold, with the latter being regarded as the weaker of the two. McDonogh, St. Paul's, St. Mary's, Severn, John Carroll and Spalding made up the Silver Division, with Archbishop Curley, Cardinal Gibbons, Pallotti, Friends and Boys' Latin comprising the Gold.

ATLANTA -- Baseball owners concluded their three-day quarterly meeting yesterday without agreeing on a realignment plan, choosing to extend the deadline for voting on the issue until Oct. 15 rather than compromise on a less-drastic interim proposal.Interim commissioner Bud Selig presided over a joint meeting of American and National League clubs yesterday during which the owners made several major decisions not related to realignment. They voted to approve public ownership of franchises, ratified a five-year broadcasting agreement with ESPN Radio and dealt with a number of administrative issues, but chose to table realignment while Selig and realignment committee chairman John Harrington continue to lobby for a far-reaching proposal that could force at least seven teams to change leagues.

Baseball owners left their quarterly meeting in Atlanta without settling on a comprehensive realignment plan, which raised the frightening specter of another off-season battle with the Major League Baseball Players Association.The union has not been a big player in the realignment debate, but that is going to change soon. The owners want to have a new format in place by Oct. 15 (which really means Nov. 28), but they haven't cleared the first hurdle in an obstacle course that could soon be pockmarked with union objections.
