Before David Santiago could concentrate full time on baseball, he had to wriggle free from his part-time duties as a baby sitter. When the rest of Olney High's players were strolling out to the field every day three years ago, eager to start practices or games, Santiago was trudging home, not-so-eager to mind his younger brothers and sisters. Sure, he loved them, but . . . "I didn't like having to miss out on baseball," he said. Fast-forward to yesterday. In the top of the seventh inning in a tense, well-played Public League semifinal at La Salle University, Santiago lashed a two-out, run-scoring double into the left-centerfield gap to break a 1-1 tie and hoist Olney to a 2-1 win over top-seeded Frankford.

Cleveland Browns coach Butch Davis said O.J. Santiago will not be arrested by Pittsburgh police, who had expected the tight end to turn himself in sometime this week. On Saturday, Pittsburgh police Lt. Kevin Kraus said an arrest warrant was issued on Friday against Santiago for misdemeanor marijuana possession. Kraus said that he notified NFL security and believed Santiago would contact police early this week. However, Davis said Santiago and his attorney had been "working with the authorities in Pittsburgh" and the Browns have been informed that he will not be arrested.

It is 9:30 p.m. and I am in the cafeteria, drawing a 16-ounce Coke from the dispenser on my way in from the theater. A fellow staff member walks up and says, "Have you seen Santiago yet at the Wilma?" "Tonight," I reply. "Saw it tonight. Just got back. " "How is it?" she asks. That's the question, all right. I usually avoid it. I let my word processor answer it. I like to type my way into an opinion. But tonight the question is asked of me directly, on the spot, by someone who knows I'm paid to give an answer and I think, what the hell, let it out. "Awful," I say, "It's simply awful.

What are the odds of scoring five runs in the ninth inning to beat Greg Maddux? Not quite up there with Rutgers-Camden beating the Chicago Bulls - but close. Here are just a few aspects of the Phillies' ninth-inning rally Friday against the great Maddux that indicate what a once-in-a-lifetime phenomenon that was: Until Benito Santiago's electrifying grand slam, Maddux had never allowed a game-winning home run in the ninth inning. That's 303 starts - plus nine more in the postseason.

It was a grass-roots fund-raising drive of the Latino community that helped the imprisoned Wilfredo "Cito" Santiago taste freedom for the first time in seven years since his arrest in the 1985 murder of Police Officer Thomas J. Trench. And freedom yesterday tasted like his grandmother's fried chicken, red beans and rice, and salad. That was Santiago's first home- cooked meal at his first and last stop, the home of his grandmother, Anna Cruz, who hovered over him while dozens of relatives and friends wished him well on Franklin Street near Indiana in North Philadelphia.

Big, booming Santiago can be tough to crack. Travelers often don't even try. They use it as a pass-through to the four seasons of Chile, an environmentally diverse strip that sweeps down the western side of South America and into the bottom of the world. Visitors fly into Santiago and take off again, for cruises, glaciers, treks, skiing, beaches and remote islands, or for other parts of the continent. Now they're beginning to stay a while, smelling Santiago's flowers before meeting up with their adventure.

This city is famous for its setting, tucked into an Andean valley surrounded by peaks soaring 20,000 feet into the sky. Not that people here see much of the snowcapped cordillera whose foothills define Santiago's boundaries. Some days, only the merest jagged outline is visible through a thick gray haze. Other days, it's worse, with the mountains disappearing completely and the skyscrapers of booming Santiago fading into the gloom. On the worst days, inhaling can feel like breathing Brillo.

The accused killer lost his case by the blink of an eye. While Carlos Santiago, 22, lay paralyzed and dying in a hospital from a gunshot wound he suffered on Aug. 6, 1991, members of his family repeated first names to him to get a clue to the identity of the shooter. When the name "David" was mentioned, Santiago blinked his eye. The family then suspected David Lopez, 42, whom they knew, and brought Santiago a picture of him, said Assistant District Attorney Bill Fisher.

Former State Police Superintendent Joseph Santiago breached the ethics code and violated state laws when, while still on the job, he demanded that all copies of investigative documents on himself and his top staff be turned over to him, according to a report released by state officials yesterday. Santiago, who resigned last month after seven months on the job, asked for those documents in mid-September, according to the 30-page report by the state Office on Government Integrity.

There was no celebration for the Celedenio Ortiz family on July 4, 1996. The 46-year-old father of two became an innocent victim of gun violence when he went outside to wash his car. One of 14 bullets fired at a 17-year-old boy in a car whistled down Reese Street near Indiana Avenue, tearing into Ortiz's right side, said Assistant District Attorney Hugh Colihan yesterday. "Mr. Ortiz was reaching up over his car, scrubbing it, cleaning it, when a bullet meant for the teen-ager took his life," said Colihan.

PHILADELPHIA boxing legend Bernard Hopkins was 23 when he landed his first professional fight. Rising star Danny Garcia, of North Philly, was 19 years. On Friday, night, 17-year-old Milton "El Santo" Santiago, of Warminster, will make his pro debut. Santiago is taking on Moses Molina at the National Guard Armory on Southampton Road in Northeast Philadelphia. Pennsylvania does not allow fighters under 18 to become professionals, but the State Athletic Commission waived the rule on the grounds that Santiago boasts a 184-12 amateur record.

  Paulina García is on screen for just about every frame of Gloria , Chile's official Academy Awards entry for best foreign-language film. (It didn't make the final cut of five - a shame.) The actress inhabits the title role, bringing this fiftysomething woman alive in ways that are haunting and raw. As a divorced office worker, with a grown son and daughter busy with their own lives, García's Gloria frequents clubs, dancing to disco, drinking and smoking, occasionally meeting a man and spending the night with him. Back in her apartment, she eats and sleeps and shoos out a pesky hairless cat that belongs to a neighbor.

TOMORROW, Phillies fans will see a young White Sox lefthander who throws a mean screwball. And if the pitch looks a bit familiar, well . . . "They made me watch tapes of Tug McGraw when I was learning to throw it," Hector Santiago said yesterday before boarding a plane for Philly where he will start opposite John Lannan tomorrow afternoon. "No one throws it anymore. " The Phillies, he said, can expect him to throw the screwy pitch early and often. "I had a lot of success with it in my last game," he said, "so I think they'll see it more than any other team this season.

SANTIAGO, Chile - Manzana! Manzana! ("Apple! Apple!") This was the sudden hue and cry in the Santiago airport when I arrived in Chile this summer, semi-delirious after traveling about 18 hours with a big fat Fuji in my purse that I had forgotten to eat. This violated every international law against agricultural imports, and all at once there were several officers, many documents, and much stamping of same until I was finally released without a...

When Fabian Santiago was a freshman, he was a speedy 100-meter runner who couldn't see past the finish line. "If you asked him to run 110 meters, it wasn't going to happen," Oakcrest coach Les Petty said. Santiago thought of himself as a future football star in those days. Track was just something he did to get in shape for his main sport in the fall. By the spring of his sophomore year, Santiago was fast enough to win the 100 meters at the Group 4 state championships.

Glen McDaniel, the Philadelphia tow-truck driver convicted Wednesday of using his vehicle to murder a rival driver in September 2010, did catch one break: He was found not guilty of causing an accident involving death or personal injury. But that was only because Common Pleas Court Judge Jeffrey Minehart said that what McDaniel did to Ray Santiago, also of Philadelphia, was no accident. Minehart then sentenced McDaniel, 27, to spend the rest of his life in state prison without parole after finding him guilty of first-degree murder for repeatedly running over Santiago.

EMILIO Estevez's oddball road movie, "The Way," does not have a moneymaking bone in its body, and I mean that in a good way. It's a true indie, financed outside the system, promoted via an old-fashioned barnstorming tour by Estevez and his dad, Martin Sheen, who are riding around the U.S. in a bus, hosting promotional screenings. The whole thing is a family affair - the idea came from one of Estevez's own sons who, while living in Spain, learned of the ritual of the Camino de Santiago - an 800-kilometer spiritual pilgrimage through the Pyrenees and Basque region of Spain.

RAMON SANTIAGO hit a solo homer in the 10th inning to give the Detroit Tigers a 2-1 win over the visiting Kansas City Royals last night. Santiago, who entered the game in the eighth as a pinch-runner, lifted Aaron Crow's pitch over the rightfield wall for only his fourth homer of the year. Joaquin Benoit (4-3) pitched two innings for the Tigers, matching his longest outing of the season. Crow (3-4) struck out Wilson Betemit with the bases loaded to end the ninth, and he got the first out of the 10th before allowing Santiago's surprising homer.

But the two sprinters had one thing in common to highlight the day: victory in the glamour event in Group 4 and 3, respectively. Their teams also led in the standings, Oakcrest with 38 points and Timber Creek with 71 when the day ended.
