LITTLE LEAGUE Baseball Inc., which claims more than 2.7 million players and 1 million volunteers, made a news splash last week by announcing that it will require, starting next year, screening for sex-abuse convictions for all adults in any of its affiliated programs. The idea by the world's largest youth sports organization, which has no affiliates in Howard County, is to ensure the safety of young players from pedophiles, who turn up with distressing frequency in any child-oriented program, be it sports, Scouting or church activities.

Gov. Martin O'Malley's plan to allocate $300,000 in taxpayer money to save Towson University's baseball team came under fire Wednesday from some legislators and key fiscal policymakers for being unprecedented and unfair to other college sports programs. Comptroller Peter Franchot said the money, recently included in the governor's 2014 budget, is a "bailout" that rewards bad financial decisions by a university. Towson President Maravene Loeschke decided last month to eliminate the university's baseball and men's soccer programs because of insufficient funding and a lack of gender equity in the university's sports.

Towson University's new arena opens to the public Wednesday night when the Harlem Globetrotters tip off the first of three games in three nights. The traveling basketball troupe is making a special stop - it usually tours in the United States from December to March - to make history at the nearly $70 million arena, which the school calls "the best basketball facility in the Mid-Atlantic. " What Towson officials have been less bold about, so far, is outlining how Tiger Arena may help the athletic department, and the university, raise revenue.

Gov. Martin O'Malley suggested Towson University form a task force to study how better to deal with meeting Title IX rules on gender equity. The governor, who proposed giving state money to save the university's baseball program, told a group of reporters Monday that all his questions about the decision to eliminate some men's sports had been answered. But he suggested that perhaps the public would benefit from a task force. "I think a lot of us have trouble with the idea that to create more sports opportunities for our daughters, we have have to eliminate opportunities for our sons," O'Malley said.

The elimination of the men's baseball and soccer programs at Towson State University is a tough pill to swallow ("Towson president: Cutbacks of baseball, soccer painful but necessary," March 15). It is a great disappointment to fans, the administration, friends of the university and the athletes in these two programs. Yet it is the only viable option if Towson is to comply with Title IX. Athletic Director Mike Waddell spent a year studying alternatives to cutting the two sports. University President Maravene Loeschke then appointed a task force to review his recommendations.
