Right-hander Zach Clark had a crazy week -- he went from being promoted to the majors, to pitching in his first big league game, to being designated for assignment and then finally to clearing waivers on Monday. The 29-year-old UMBC graduate has been sent to Double-A Bowie, where he'll work on throwing a knuckleball. After parts of eight seasons in the minors, Clark made his debut with the Orioles on Wednesday in Seattle and allowed three runs in 1 2/3 innings. He was taken off the 40-man roster to make room for Freddy Garcia.

Like Hamlet in his lament "To be or not to be," Anne Arundel County is struggling with the question of whether or not to grant waivers for new development in crowded school districts.By granting a waiver, and assessing a fee, the county's Department of Planning and Code Enforcement can decide that a development can be created -- despite school planners' objections that new students living there would be assigned to crowded classrooms.The fee, or waiver as it is called, is the developer's way of paying to upgrade the school facilities to avoid a delay.

A reluctant State Board of Education waived Maryland's mandatory 180-day school year requirement yesterday for six counties forced to close school more than expected this year because of bad weather.After a lengthy debate, during which board members stressed the importance of a full school year, the panel approved one-day waivers for Howard, Harford, Frederick and Worcester counties, and three-day waivers for Garrett and Washington counties.Separately, state school Superintendent Nancy S. Grasmick said she has approved a one-day waiver for the Maryland School for the Blind, which does not require a board vote.

Eliminating a controversial program that allows developers to build where schools are already crowded won't solve Anne Arundel County's growth problems, a committee studying the issue has concluded.Instead, the committee members say, the waiver system should remain, and county and school system planners must do a better job to ensure that schools are not crowded.The waiver system allows developers to pay a fee in exchange for county permission to build where schools are crowded. The developers' money is supposed to go toward building more classrooms.

SEATTLE - The Seattle Mariners yesterday claimed Orioles minor-league outfielder Eugene Kingsale off waivers, officially severing the organization's ties to a player once considered its most promising outfield prospect. The Orioles signed Kingsale as a 16-year-old free agent on June 19, 1993, and he eventually became the first Aruban to appear in the major leagues. Kingsale, 24, played parts of five seasons for the Orioles and was projected as a fleet, slap-hitting base-stealer. Kingsale was slowed by numerous injuries and missed almost all of last season because of a torn quadriceps suffered in spring training.

BOSTON - Three days after designating him for assignment, the Orioles placed outfielder Nolan Reimold on waivers Friday, according to an industry source. It's likely no coincidence that the club placed Reimold, who was on the 60-day disabled list and is returning from his second neck surgery, on waivers over the holiday weekend. Clubs have 48 hours to place a claim on him before he clears at 1 p.m. Sunday. If another club claims Reimold, it must pick up what remains of his $1.025 million salary for this season, which is roughly $500,000.

CARLISLE, Pa. -- The Washington Redskins closed the book on one of their worst trades yesterday when they waived veteran running back Gerald Riggs.The Redskins gave the Atlanta Falcons a first- and second-round draft pick in 1988 to get Riggs, hoping that he'd be another John Riggins in their one-back offense.It turned out that Riggs, who was 28 at the time, had been worn down from 1984 through 1986 when he carried the ball 1,043 times.He was hampered by injuries with the Redskins, and when he was left unprotected on Plan B this spring, no team gave him an offer.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Apparently at an impasse with Fernando Valenzuela over the time he needed to pitch himself back into shape, the California Angels placed him on waivers yesterday for the purpose of giving him his unconditional release.However, they did invite him to pitch for the Class AAA Edmonton Trappers if he clears waivers and doesn't sign with another club.Valenzuela was placed on the disabled list June 13 after a heart abnormality was detected in two tests. The condition was later diagnosed as "crimping" in an artery leading to his heart, and medication was prescribed to alleviate the problem.

LANDOVER -- The Washington Capitals, who have been operating with three extra forwards since calling up Pat Peake and Steve Konowalchuk last week, lost two of them yesterday.The trade of veteran forward Pat Elynuik was planned. The loss of veteran center Keith Acton on the waiver wire wasn't.Capitals general manager David Poile sent Elynuik to Tampa Bay for a 1995 fifth-round draft choice.Earlier in the day, he was forced to put one of his other players on waivers, due to the signing of veteran defenseman Brian Curran.
