At what had been a Police Athletic League Center on Tuesday and then a recreation center on Wednesday, the kids hustling up and down the basketball court in the gym on Towanda Avenue in Northwest Baltimore barely noticed a change that by design is slow and subtle. Officer Phil Dixon was there, in uniform and wearing his sidearm, running the court with the kids just as he always has for the past two years. "Take your time, take your time, take your time," he yelled at the youngsters before barking, "Shoot!"

The Towanda (Pa.) High School baseball team was making the second stop of its senior trip to various major league ballparks when Tuesday's Orioles postponement put it behind schedule. There was no doubt in the senior players and statisticians' minds that they would come to the rescheduled game. "We were definitely coming back," statistician Christine Vendello said. Towanda coach Bill Sexton, 53, said because of flooding throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, it was an easy decision to change plans to catch all three games of the Orioles' series against the Philadelphia Phillies instead of traveling to another city.
