While the shakeup in the Baltimore Orioles' management dominated the local sports and news scene Monday, baseball isn't the topic of interest at the Soccerdome in Harmans. The television hanging above one of the fields just a few feet past the entrance had music shows and an international soccer match. The computer on the desk at the snack bar listed the growing schedule for soccer games at the building plus the various league standings. Paula Madde, manager of Soccerdome, said that soccer's interest heats up in the summer.

The day before he was named soccer commissioner for Crofton's youth recreation council, Mark Pfundstein met with coaches and administrators for a Washington-area league. He expected a routine session. He heard a hair-raising tale. A coach at a game of under-14 girls screamed at his counterpart on the other sideline. Then, as the story went, a band of parents berated a teen-age referee and followed her to the parking lot, cursing and threatening to beat her up. "I remember specifically thinking, `Thank God we don't have that in Crofton,'" Pfundstein recalled, "because I would have to clean up the mess."

The big blue Lincoln is rolling down the expressway, taking the referee back to his house in Timonium. It is dark outside. The referee's face is lit by the --board lights. It is time for dinner. The referee is hungry. The gym was hot and the game was not.This has been the routine for 20 years now. Leave work in the middle of the afternoon. Change into the black-and-white shirt, the black pants, the black shoes, the whistle. Get in the car, find the gym. Work the game, work up a sweat, get called a few names.

Before the Saturday afternoon youth soccer match in Columbia can begin, the 17-year-old referee gets an earful from the two head coaches. One warns him that parents from the two teams can't watch from the same sideline without risking a rumble; the other warns him of a father of one 12-year-old player who has gotten thrown off the field in a previous game for verbal abuse. Aaron Riner, a senior at Liberty High School and the match's head referee, can only shake his head and smile. He's heard it all before.

The Ravens and the Maryland Stadium Authority are in the final stages of putting together a second international soccer matchup at M&T Bank Stadium on July 25, according to Terry Hasseltine, director of the Maryland office of sports marketing. No other details -- including which teams will participate -- have been finalized, Hasseltine said. There is an outside chance the date could change, "but all discussions are leaning toward the 25th," he said. Hasseltine also said that because this is a World Cup year, European teams are reluctant to commit to an overseas trip before their regular season begins.
