A Memorable Place Where elders and children are treasured By Linda Roof SPECIAL TO THE SUN I recently had the privilege of escorting my daughter-in-law and beautiful 6-month-old grandson to their new home in South Korea. My son is a captain in the U.S. Army and had arrived two months earlier. I love to travel, and this opportunity offered a great adventure. I knew nothing about Korea, but one month's vacation would give me ample time to learn. The second night in Seoul, I walked my grandson to a popular shopping district known as Itaewon.

TORONTO -- The Orioles not only lost a game last night, but they also appeared to irritate the Toronto Blue Jays.The incident that brought both teams onto the field and stirred a walk-around debate occurred in the bottom of the seventh inning. With the Blue Jays leading 9-5, Orioles reliever Alan Mills pitched a fastball over the head of batter Luis Sojo, who was filling in for regular shortstop Dick Schofield.When Sojo glared at Mills as if to say "why me?", Mills walked toward home plate and appeared to motion to Sojo.

NEW YORK - If the heavily hyped Subway Series proved anything, it is that the New York Yankees are the third rail of postseason baseball. It's a bad idea to come in contact with them in October. They won their third consecutive world championship last night with a 4-2 victory over the New York Mets in Game 5 at sold-out Shea Stadium, enhancing their status as the most successful team of their generation and one of the greatest teams in the glorious history of the Yankees' franchise. Who's going to argue after they won their fourth championship in five years and continued to be one of the most dominant teams in World Series history?

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The New York Yankees backed into the postseason and backed themselves into a corner in the best-of-five Di-vision Series against the up-start Oakland Athletics, but they proved last night that they are still the world cham-pions until someone proves otherwise. They bounced back from a lackluster effort in Game I to defeat the A's, 4-0, behind a masterful performance by left-bander Andy Pettitte, and headed back to New York with a chance to gain tile upper hand in the series t imorrow at Yankee Stadium.

Note: Yankees players listed first First base Tino Martinez vs. John Olerud: Olerud drove in 103 runs in his first season with the Mariners, and batted .300 with a homer and two RBIs in the Division Series. Martinez couldn't touch the first set of numbers, batting .258 with 91 RBIs during the regular season and being dropped as low as eighth in the Yankees' order. But he played an integral part in New York's advancement to the ALCS, hitting a three-run double in the decisive fifth game of the Division Series and batting .421.

NEW YORK - Given use of the designated hitter for the first two games of the World Series, New York Mets manager Bobby Valentine has found a way to improve his defense behind the plate while keeping Mike Piazza's bat in the lineup. Valentine will give Todd Pratt the start at catcher tonight, with Piazza serving as the designated hitter against Yankees left-hander Andy Pettitte. Pratt threw out 39 percent of runners who tried to steal off him this season, going 14-for-36. Piazza threw out 23 percent, going 32-for-142.

ANALYSIS THE YANKEES have the home-field advantage in the best-of-seven series, but the importance of the early games at Yankee Stadium is even more magnified by the pitching alignment of the Mets. They'll use strong left-handers Al Leiter and Mike Hampton in Games 1 and 2, which will leave the rotation soft for the first two games at Shea Stadium. The Mets have to split the first two in the Bronx to have a chance to exploit their decided statistical advantage at Shea. They really need to win the first two to have a real good chance of winning the World Series -- and that's a tall order.

SEATTLE -- His pitches were either overhand, sidearm or invisible. Randy Johnson needed only two runs yesterday, got nine and the Seattle Mariners, at the age of 19, finally reached manhood.By achieving a 9-1 winner-take-all victory over the California Angels, the Mariners were anointed American League West champions for the first time, paused to swig some champagne and then hailed a red-eye flight to New York, where Chris Bosio will oppose David Cone at Yankee Stadium tonight in the first postseason game in Mariners' history.
