Triple-A Lehigh Valley Alec Asher, who started the season in double A after spending time in the majors last season, looks to be fighting his way back to the Phillies. Asher has reached the seventh inning in each of his three starts this season at triple A. He allowed one earned run in 62/3 innings on Thursday afternoon. The righthander has walked just three batters and struck out 15 in 221/3 innings. The run he allowed on Thursday was his first in three starts, and his triple-A ERA stands at 0.40.

The boys' 100-meter finals at the Catholic League track and field championships on Saturday afternoon included several sprinters who also excel on the gridiron. La Salle receivers Charles Headen and Winston Eubanks, West Catholic receiver Jameer Bryson, and St. Joseph's Prep tailback D'Andre Swift were part of the top-notch field. Headen leaned in at the end and claimed gold at Cardinal O'Hara with a clocking of 10.88 seconds. Bryson (11.07), Eubanks (11.11), and Swift (11.17) were next in line.

Last season, after lining out to second base for the final out, Olney Charter's Giovanni Ortega got an up-close look at Franklin Towne Charter's celebratory dogpile near the mound. Ortega and the error-prone Trojans squandered a four-run lead in bowing to the Coyotes, 9-7, in the Public League final at Campbell's Field in Camden. Fueled in part by last year's disappointment, Olney is 10-1 in league action and determined to be on the receiving end of Public League chairman Barry Strube's first-place trophy presentation this time.

Within walking distance of the Sleep Inn and Suites in Hagerstown, Md., is a Waffle House, Wendy's, Cracker Barrel, Burger King, McDonald's, and a 7-Eleven tucked behind a gas station. This is where the single-A Lakewood BlueClaws stay three times a season, when they pile into a bus for a South Atlantic League road trip. Shane Watson, a former first-round pick back at Lakewood after shoulder surgery, prefers the Cracker Barrel. A few weeks ago, when Lakewood visited Hagerstown, Watson planned to dine there for lunch - until a caterer carried salmon and some steamed vegetables into the hotel lobby.

Goldie and Gladys. Gladys and Goldie. Their lives and their hospital volunteer work have been as intertwined as their names. (The short version: For a while in childhood, Goldie Block was called Gladys, a popular name of the day. And the name on Gladys Cutler's birth certificate is Goldie.) For upward of six decades, they have worked to raise funds for the Women's League for Medical Research, formed in 1951 to benefit the Albert Einstein Medical Center. While other groups may garner larger grants, this group of mostly women, led for much of the time by Goldie and Gladys, worked dollar by dollar, through bingo fund-raisers and annual ad books, to raise $2.8 million for cardiovascular, pulmonary and renal care.

Since I announced last month in a column that I changed my voter registration to Republican so I could vote in the Donald Trump referendum, a.k.a. the Pennsylvania primary election, my friends and family have been treating me like Kramer on Seinfeld . You know, the kook who lives next door and who comes and goes as he pleases and who leaves the toilet seat up, no matter how many times he's been told, nicely, not to. My liberal progressive Democratic...
