It's doubtful Tyler Criniti will forget his first stint as a cleanup hitter. Mostly for what happened, naturally, but also for the circumstances that caused a 2-day delay. Criniti, a 5-10, 190-pound junior, is the rightfielder for Girard Academic Music Program's baseball team and yesterday he experienced all kinds of fun as the visiting Pioneers topped Esperanza Academy, 18-8, in a six-inning Public A game at Front and Erie. Monday, not by choice, he was a no-show for a loss to Northeast.

Frankford High long has billed itself as "The Home of Champions" and, let's face it, though the tag is meant to be all-inclusive, football is the sport with the highest profile. But, hey, look over there. There has been a changing by the guard and he's now sporting a baseball uniform. Is he justified? You might say his thought process is definitely in the ballpark. On Friday at Richie Ashburn Field, hard by I-95 at the back of FDR Park, in South Philly, Frankford's diamond squad racked up quite the achievement.

As much as he's enjoying the present, Joey Powell can't help but worry about the future. While it's wonderful that Julia Masterman High now owns the Public League/District 12 Class A baseball championship, and soon will participate in the regular Pub playoffs as well as the PIAA state tournament, Powell knows the long-range stop could be oblivion. Masterman's varsity has just 12 players. There's no JV, and no freshmen (of only 42 boys in that class) were inclined to even try out. "Getting kids to come out for the team; that's definitely going to be one of my jobs," said Powell, a 5-10, 155-pound sophomore shortstop.

GIVEN A CHOICE, Tobias Stokes would change the name (and focus) of his school to Girard Academic Journalism Program. The third word remains MUSIC, however, and Stokes can only laugh when relaying his failed attempts to fit in. "I started off with the drums," he said. "But my rhythm was a little off. Then they put me on just the bass drum, but I was too little for that. You know how they have those straps on your shoulder, and then that big drum's in front of you? Well, it was too heavy for me. One time I was like this [teetering]

WHETHER he's involved in a bang-bang play at first base, or if the home plate umpire is squeezing his strike zone, don't expect Tyler Criniti to put up too much of an argument. He may grumble under his breath and kick at the dirt, but Criniti, a senior at Girard Academic Music Program, isn't going to whine to the men in blue. They say you don't know a man until you've walked a mile in his cleats. Criniti started umpiring youth baseball games last month and has newfound respect for the profession.

Trailing 4-2, Northeast's Chris Castro was hit by a pitch to begin the bottom of the seventh inning of Wednesday's Public League Division A matchup. The ensuing batter, Jordan Montero, was originally called out by the first-base umpire until a conference at home plate resulted in a reversal of the decision, because the first baseman's foot left the bag on a wide throw. Central's coach argued the call until he was ejected. Following the brief recess, Castro advanced to third on a wild pitch.

PICTURE THIS, Philadelphia: You're stuck in traffic on the Schuylkill Expressway near Boathouse Row on a powder-blue fall afternoon when your radio scan picks up an unfamiliar station: 1540 on your AM dial. It's the top of the hour on WNWR, and a strange, bombastic Chinese-language pop song - the Mandarin answer to Adele, perhaps - fades out and it's almost time for the news. First, "This is Weather Report" - one of the station's odd English phrasings - delivered along with the traffic by "your host, Calypso!

FYODOR BADKHEN, 17, has been part of Girard Academic Music Program for four years, but he didn't realize he would help the school win a Grammy - sort of. The South Philadelphia magnet school, known as GAMP, was one of 13 schools in the nation chosen by the GRAMMY Foundation for its Signature Schools Award and will receive $5,500. The annual award recognizes the best public high schools in music education. Eight of the 13 schools, including GAMP, received the Enterprise Award grant for schools that are economically underserved.

In Coatesville's season opener on Monday night, Brian Brown allowed his first and only baserunner via a walk in the sixth inning. He promptly picked the runner off first base. It was a signature moment in a signature game. The senior North Carolina State recruit threw a no-hitter against visiting West Chester East, and the Red Raiders grabbed a 3-0 win in a Ches-Mont National league game. The lefthander struck out 13 batters and allowed just one walk. Bobby Stewart accounted for all three Coatesville runs with a two-run home run in the first inning, and an RBI single in the fifth.

WITH LAST night's game well out of reach in the fourth quarter, Engineering and Sciences head basketball coach C.M. Brown frantically asked referee Russell McCullough for a timeout. "You guys don't even have the ball," McCullough said, laughing. Surely, the only coach E&S has ever known knew the rule, but his attention was elsewhere. After a dead ball, a break was finally granted. "I was trying to get a kid in the game," Brown said later with the hint of a smile on his face.
