ST. LOUIS - You just never know what you're going to see when you walk into a big-league clubhouse. You might find Roy Halladay displaying the same sort of remarkable command with a toy helicopter that he has with his arsenal of pitches during a game; that's a common sight in the Phillies clubhouse at Citizens Bank Park. You might see a hitting display from Joseph Contreras, the youngest son of Phillies reliever Jose; the kid is talented beyond his years. But what we saw in the visitors clubhouse before Wednesday's game at Busch Stadium was as unpredictable as it gets.

The Marple Township Board of Commissioners has failed to reach a consensus on whether to close the clubhouse facilities at Paxon Hollow Country Club. At a meeting Monday, the board voted, 3-3, on a move to close the clubhouse. Commissioner Mark DiGiovanni was absent. The fate of the clubhouse, which needs repairs and is costly to keep open, will be decided at a special meeting next month. "It's a bad building," said Martin Nash, president of the board of commissioners, referring to the clubhouse's asbestos insulation and leaky pipes.

Ryan Howard is a relative newcomer to the major leagues and a first-timer when it comes to performing in the heat of a pennant race. Yet the Phillies' rookie first baseman has been taken aback by the almost laid-back atmosphere he finds in the team's locker room. "If you were to hang around the clubhouse, you wouldn't even think we're in a pennant race," Howard said before last night's 12-4 win over the Atlanta Braves at Citizens Bank Park. "Everybody is relaxed and loose, and that is probably one of the biggest things I've seen.

The Klein Co. of Philadelphia got permission Monday night to start blasting the foundation for the PineCrest Golf Club and Residential Community clubhouse in Montgomery Township. The township supervisors voted, 2-0, to approve a foundation permit with the agreement that Klein realizes it is proceeding at its own risk because the clubhouse building permit has not been approved. Klein Development director Clay L. Chandler told supervisors that the company needs to get started on the clubhouse before winter, or it might not be able to meet its planned July 1 opening date.

The Clifton Heights Police Athletic League will reach a milestone today with the dedication of its new PAL clubhouse on the North Glenwood Avenue field. About 50 to 75 league officers, parents and supporters will gather in the building for a 2 p.m. ribbon-cutting, refreshments, speech-making and a lots of thank-yous. "If we try to thank all of the people who helped this building become a reality, we'd never finish the ceremony," said Donald C. Schirg, PAL president and program chairman.

There was at least one place in this town where people seemed reluctant to talk about Pete Rose's legal victory, where smiles were scarce and answers were terse. That would be the Reds' clubhouse after yesterday's 7-0 loss to Orel Hershiser and the Los Angeles Dodgers. "I'm not talking," Reds leftfielder Ken Griffey said, turning his back on reporters who had hoped to ask him about his manager and former teammate. "I don't want to talk about Pete," rightfielder Paul O'Neill said.

The sullen heat and humidity had vacated Veterans Stadium and left behind a perfectly pleasant evening for a baseball game. The Pittsburgh Pirates were in first place. The Phillies had won four of their last five. So why weren't these people smiling last night? Pirates manager Jim Leyland went out to jaw at second-base umpire Joe West in the fifth inning. Phillies manager Jim Fregosi went nose-to-nose with West in the sixth, protesting so forcefully that he was ejected for the second time this year.

Construction bids for a clubhouse at Five Ponds golf course in Warminster have come in so much higher than expected that township officials are reevaluating its design. The clubhouse was expected to cost about $2.2 million, but at a meeting Thursday night, bids came in at nearly $2.75 million. The increase is due to the booming construction industry, which has resulted in a market more friendly to sellers than buyers, said Bernard O'Neill, president of the township Board of Supervisors.

Although Upper Dublin commissioners still have bids to examine for the interior of Twining Valley Golf Club's new clubhouse, the long-awaited beginning of construction is just days away. The Board of Commissioners unanimously accepted low bids Tuesday for hardware, painting, ceiling design and carpentry work for the clubhouse, which will replace Twining Valley's old pro shop and snack bar, gutted by a fire in February 1989. However, the board rejected the lone bid for ceramic tiles and postponed voting on the bids for kitchen equipment so the project's design company can examine the bids more closely.

The Milwaukee Brewers banned supplements from their clubhouse and discouraged players from using them. Brewers players received a document this week outlining the dangers of supplements, both legal and illegal, containing stimulants and steroids. "Because of health risks, the Milwaukee Brewers do not recommend that any of their personnel take supplements," the document said. "Club policy forbids the storage of supplements in the clubhouse [including in your locker]. Players who choose to take supplements should make the medical staff aware of which supplements they are taking to minimize their health risks.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - J.P. Crawford, Roman Quinn, and Nick Williams - perhaps the nucleus of the next contending Phillies team - were pulled separately from the team's clubhouse Monday morning and instructed to report to manager Pete Mackanin's office. Their time in major-league spring training was finished. The prospects were sent across the complex to minor-league camp, where games begin Tuesday. And the message delivered by general manager Matt Klentak and his top aides was bright. "It was great," Mackanin said.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Freddy Galvis thought the Phillies clubhouse was too quiet when he arrived last month at spring training. So Galvis went to a nearby electronics store and purchased an oversize speaker to stash in the empty locker next to his stall. The second baseman plays the role of DJ, controlling the music as the team arrives in the morning or eats lunch before games. "It was something that I tried to do to have a good clubhouse," Galvis said. "I think the music is good for that.

CLEARWATER, Fla. Mark Appel sat at his locker in the Phillies clubhouse with his hood up and a pair of headphones tucked into his ears. The pitching prospect paged through a copy of the Bible the morning before boarding a chartered bus to make his final start in major-league spring training. Appel starts each morning in silence and reflection as he leans on his faith to help him navigate his path - which has not always been smooth - to the majors. "Get my day started the right way," Appel said.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - One by one, the players gravitated Thursday morning to one corner of the crowded Phillies clubhouse to embrace three young pitchers. Mark Appel, Zach Eflin, and Jake Thompson emptied their lockers into red bags. Veterans shook their hands. Other prospects hugged and joked with them. The future rotation was demoted to minor-league camp. "Hopefully, we'll all get up at the same time and play for 10 years," Thompson said. "That's how it's supposed to work. " It is dangerous, of course, to assume anything about pitching prospects.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The Phillies opened the doors to their spring training clubhouse Wednesday, and the immediate surveillance of the expansive room created a peculiar feeling. Look across and to the left at the lockers where the aces used to reside, and the new nameplates read Hernandez, Rupp, Mariot, Oberholzer, and Bailey . No empty lockers for extra space that is typically provided for established stars such as Roy Halladay, Roy Oswalt, Cliff Lee, and Cole Hamels. Too many players overall - 65 in total - and too many of the nondescript variety for that kind of luxury.

On Tuesday morning, after firefighters extinguished the blaze, the clubhouse at the Cobbs Creek Golf Club stood burned and encased in ice. It marked a frozen end to a once-noble building, crafted from the ruins of a farmland mansion when the course was built in 1916. In the 1950s, it hosted players like Billy Casper and Arnold Palmer. It was home to great African American golfers, who played at race-neutral Cobbs Creek when much of the sport was segregated. Now, Cobbs Creek players and fans said Tuesday, the fiery demise of the clubhouse could push the future of the course toward a climax, toward a moment when years of effort on a planned, hoped-for renovation could be thrust forward or thrown back.

A two-alarm fire Sunday morning rendered the clubhouse at Glenside's Lulu Country Club a total loss, fire officials said. The blaze broke out about 6:30 a.m. in the locker room of the 1920s structure on the 1600 block of Limekiln Pike, near Jenkintown Road. Flames quickly spread up through the basement, an open floor plan ballroom and through the timber roof of the 1920s structure. It took more than 100 firefighters from surrounding companies to extinguish the flames. No injuries were reported.

A DAY AFTER the Phillies removed Ruben Amaro Jr. as general manager, Jeff Francoeur was up to his usual antics in the team's clubhouse before a doubleheader with the Chicago Cubs, joking with his teammates, old and young, and making them practically fall out of their seats with laughter. Francoeur was all smiles, but he took no pleasure from the exit of Amaro, who gave the 31-year-old outfielder another shot in the big leagues when his career seemed to be fading around this time last year.

Ken Giles arrived at spring training in February with his own custom T-shirt. The red sleeveless shirt had "I'm all Fired Up" printed on the front and the Phillies reliever's nickname, "100 Miles Giles" screened on the back. Everyone wanted one, Giles said. His teammates had to wait. Giles purchased a box of the shirts and brought them to the Phillies' clubhouse last week after a nine-game road trip. "I'll tell you one thing, they were like kids in a candy store," Giles said.

MIAMI - Luis Garcia walked off the mound after a recent outing, having needed only eight pitches to dispatch the opposition in order. Once back in the dugout, the Phillies relief pitcher heard from his manager. "Te vamos a pagar medio dia de trabajo, porque no hiciste nada hoy. " Half a day's pay because you didn't do anything today. "Little stuff like that," Pete Mackanin said, "and they get a kick out of it. " Witty remarks such as that one have been more common in the Phillies dugout in the two months since Mackanin was tabbed as the interim caretaker of baseball's worst team.
