Controversy swirled when two Catholic League baseball quarterfinal games that were suspended Monday because of rain did not resume as expected on Tuesday. No. 5 seed Neumann-Goretti, which was ahead of No. 4 Roman Catholic by 2-1 in the top of the sixth inning, and No. 6 Cardinal O'Hara, which had a 4-1 advantage on No. 3 La Salle in the bottom of the sixth, were declared winners about noon on Tuesday. That's because, according to PIAA rules, a high school game - in the regular season or playoffs - is complete after 41/2 (if the host team is leading)

IT'S 4:45 ON a recent weekday and there's a light drizzle coming down on the Taney Youth Baseball Association fields at FDR Park in South Philly, across Broad Street from the sports complex, where the Phillies are supposed to play Miami in a little more than two hours. It's been raining on and off for most of the afternoon. The forecast is calling for the precipitation to stop, well, soon. One of the in-house teams in the league for 11- and 12-year-olds, the Wizards, has just arrived in several carloads.

Triple-A Lehigh Valley Zach Eflin, the youngest pitcher in the International League, is not showing his age in his first season at triple A. The 22-year-old righthander pitched seven shutout innings Wednesday to lower his ERA to 2.36, the seventh-best mark among pitchers who have made at least seven starts. The average age of the six pitchers better than Eflin is 24.83. Eflin has struck out 39 batters and walked just seven in 452/3 innings. His strikeout rate - 7.7 per nine innings - is three better than his mark last season.

For a while, it seemed Ben Simmons was the no-brainer top pick in the NBA draft. But should the 76ers go in a different direction on June 23? Folks were all over the Simmons-is-the-second-coming-of-LeBron-James bandwagon heading into his one-and-done season at Louisiana State. When Simmons' lack of shooting ability became evident and he didn't play as hard as some expected, people began to question how reliable he would be in the NBA. Plus, reports are flying around that the versatile forward doesn't want to play for the Sixers.

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.

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.
