GROWING UP the daughter of a renowned heavyweight champion would certainly come with its share of public exposure. But as a pioneer in women's boxing, Jacquelyn Frazier-Lyde cemented her own place in boxing history. Yesterday morning at City Hall, in a brief ceremony at the start of the general City Council meeting, Frazier-Lyde officially became the first female inducted into the Pennsylvania Boxing Hall of Fame.

LOS ANGELES - Since the Phillies' lineup was matched up against lefthander Paul Maholm, who has seen righthanded hitters hit nearly 70 points higher than lefthanders in his career, it was hardly surprising that Cody Asche was out of last night's starting nine at Dodger Stadium. Asche also gave way to a pinch-hitter a day earlier in Denver, in another right-lefty matchup. And since Freddy Galvis returned from the disabled list 10 days earlier, Asche has been out of the lineup in four of the last 10 games.

When Daryl Hall and John Oates took the mike at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies Thursday night - in a gala at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. - Hall reflected on both the honor and the injustice of being the first "homegrown Philly act" inducted. He listed many deserving names, from Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes to Todd Rundgren. It was part of a big night for the Cleveland-based Hall of Fame, as the E Street Band, Nirvana, Cat Stevens, Linda Ronstadt, Peter Gabriel, and high-shoed rockers Kiss were inducted.

NEW YORK - It was a big night in Brooklyn on Thursday at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, as Philadelphia pop-soul duo Hall & Oates joined Nirvana, Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, cartoon hard-rockers Kiss, and others in entering the Cleveland-based Hall as its 2014 class. Other inductees included '70s and '80s prog-rocker Peter Gabriel, singer-songwriter Cat Stevens, and country-rock hit maker Linda Ronstadt. She suffers from Parkinson's disease and did not attend the show but was paid tribute to in song by Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Stevie Nicks, Sheryl Crow, and Carrie Underwood.

DALLAS - The idea that a women's basketball team from Immaculata could one day be enshrined into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame would have been so far-fetched an idea in the early 1970s that it would not have been an idea, thought or dream. "It's not something a young girl in the 70s who played basketball . . . it's not even I could say is a dream come true because you would never have dreamt this," Judy Martelli said yesterday morning at the Omni Dallas. The Immaculata teams that went 60-2 from 1972 to 1974 and won three consecutive AIAW national championships will be part of the 2014 Hall Class that will be inducted on Aug. 8 in Springfield, Mass., a class that will have a distinct Philly flavor with Maryland coach and Collingswood, N.J. native Gary Williams and Temple and Warriors legend Guy Rodgers.

On its picturesque campus on King Road between Malvern and Exton in Chester County, Immaculata University features 19 sports programs. But it's the women's basketball team that for many defines this Catholic school of about 2,500 undergraduates. "We're still celebrating what the women's basketball team did for women's sports," Marie Moughan, university spokeswoman, said, referring to the school's national championship teams of 1972, '73, and '74. "Immaculata was at the beginning of women's basketball the way it is today.

PETE ROSE won $2,500 that night at Maywood, the harness track just outside of Chicago. I was with him, talked to the same people, bet the same races, not the same horses. I won $25. Rose cackled about that, all the way to the parking lot. There was a delay and Pete asked the valet parking guy if he knew who he was. The guy took a half-step back, his brow furrowed. "Yeah," he said, "The Incredible Hulk, Lou Ferrigno. " Rose stopped cackling. Someone who didn't know Pete Rose? In a National League town?

THERE'S A GREAT story in Kostya Kennedy's new book, "Pete Rose: An American Dilemma" about the time the all-time hit king finally felt real sorrow, real remorse, for gambling on baseball. At a banquet held on the 25th anniversary of his recordsetting 4,192nd hit, Rose looked upon a room that held former teammates, opposing players, executives, fans and friends, and began to break down. "I disrespected baseball," he said at one point, choking up. "I guarantee everyone in this room I will never disrespect you again.
