The Florida Marlins will be the team in tattered teal in coming weeks. No Gary Sheffield. No Ryan Bowen. No Bryan Harvey. Sheffield, an All-Star outfielder, and Bowen, a starting pitcher, were placed on the 15-day disabled list yesterday, victims of injuries in Monday's loss to Pittsburgh. Sheffield (shoulder) and Bowen (side muscle) joined Harvey, an All-Star reliever, who was scheduled to come off the DL today but figures to be out of action for at least another 10 days after experiencing problems in a rehab start Monday night.

Maybe it was the AstroTurf. Maybe it was the American crowd, which actually did the wave for five entire spine-tingling minutes. Maybe Sheffield Wednesday is more concerned with the English League season that starts in two weeks. Or maybe the United States national soccer team is slowly gaining confidence under new coach Bora Milutinovic. Whatever the reason, the U.S. team dominated the second half to defeat Sheffield Wednesday, 2-0, in an exhibition last night before 44,261 mostly youthful fans at Veterans Stadium.

Sheffield Wednesday never got the chance to benefit from Bruce Murray's soccer abilities. However, last season's English League Cup champions have now been stung by them. Murray, a midfielder from Germantown, Md., last night scored the only necessary goal as the U.S. national team surprised Sheffield, 2-0, before 44,261 enthusiastic fans at Veterans Stadium. The crowd, the seventh-largest to ever see the national team play in the United States, should do wonders for Philadelphia's chances of helping to host the 1994 World Cup. Twelve cities will receive games.

Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard hit his third home run in as many games for the Major League Baseball all-stars, who beat a team of Japanese all-stars, 11-4, yesterday in Tokyo. Howard, who led the majors with 58 homers last season, hit a three-run homer off reliever Yuya Kubo in the bottom of the seventh inning at the Toyko Dome, giving the major-leaguers a six-run lead. The Phillies slugger is 7 for 10 with six RBIs in the series. He hit two homers in the major-leaguers' 8-6 win Saturday.

Camden Catholic, ranked No. 7 in South Jersey by The Inquirer, is 7-3 and still involved in the state Non-Public Group 3 playoffs.

John Harkes was raised in a house where the words Wembley Stadium - the site of nearly every important English football match since 1923 - were magical. To the Harkes family, it was more revered than Fenway Park or Cooperstown. So it was natural that Harkes felt edgy on that April day as his team bus steamed through the streets of London on its way to the English League Cup final game. He was going to Wembley Stadium as the right midfielder for the Sheffield Wednesday professional soccer club.

Over the last several years, new work by local writer Will Stutts had been regularly presented in the Walnut Street Theatre's Studio Series. While his pieces have not been of the first rank, the one-man shows, which Stutts also performs, and the small-scale plays, which he frequently directs, are competently effective entertainments. In light of this track record, Walnut Studio audiences may be willing to forgive Stutts his latest offering, the quite inadequate Summons to Sheffield, and forgive the Walnut for allowing a play that is obviously unready for production to be staged.

His junior football season had ended in both loss and frustration, and Paul VI's Dior Hightower was ready to turn the page but not close the door. As many high school players do, Hightower thought he should have been a starter, especially for a team that finished 2-8 in 2011. Instead of bemoaning his lack of playing time, he kept plugging away. Throughout his career, the 5-foot-9, 145-pound Hightower has heard he's too small to play the game, let alone excel at it. "Nobody likes to be told that they won't succeed," he said.

The downtrodden characters in Among Giants have the endless and messy task of climbing high above the Yorkshire countryside to paint electric transmission towers. As an unabashed attempt to reach the dizzying heights of the international smash hit The Fully Monty, the movie makes it halfway. If the setting (the gritty city of Sheffield) and the core of Among Giants, which features the camaraderie of an engaging bunch of down-on-their-luck guys, seem familiar, there's a very good explanation.

Johnny Sheffield, 79, who played the character Boy in the Tarzan movies of the 1930s and '40s, died Oct. 15 of a heart attack at his home in the San Diego suburb of Chula Vista. His wife, Patty Sheffield, said that he fell off a ladder while pruning a palm tree four hours earlier. Mr. Sheffield beat out more than 300 other youngsters for the role of Boy in the 1939 movie Tarzan Finds a Son! and went on to costar with Johnny Weissmuller in seven more Tarzan films. He later played another jungle boy, Bomba, in a dozen movies before quitting the role in 1955.

Gary Sheffield hit a drive to the top of the leftfield wall, just before the fence reaches the 15-foot, 8 1/2-inch mark. A fan reached out and touched the ball. Tiebreaking, three-run homer or RBI double? While the intial call was home run, Washington manager Manny Acta argued and three umpires went inside for a video review. For 6 minutes, players and fans at Citi Field wondered. Crew chief Larry Vanover finally signaled home run, and the banged-up New York Mets went on to beat the hapless Washington Nationals, 5-2, last night.

Gary Sheffield joined the 500-homer club, and Luis Castillo drove in the winning run with a two-out single in the ninth inning that gave the New York Mets a 5-4 victory over visiting Milwaukee last night. Ryan Braun hit a three-run homer to give Milwaukee a 4-3 lead in the sixth before Sheffield tied it the next inning off Mitch Stetter, who was facing his first batter in relief of starter Dave Bush. Sheffield, a nine-time All-Star, was on as a pinch-hitter and sent a 3-2 pitch an estimated 385 feet for his first hit of the season.

Gary Sheffield plans to go for No. 500 with the New York Mets. One home run shy of the milestone, Sheffield reached a contract agreement with New York yesterday, 3 days after he was released by Detroit. Just hours before opening their beaming new ballpark last night with an exhibition game with Boston, the Mets made another splash by acquiring the outspoken Sheffield. He is expected to be in New York today and the deal is contingent on him passing a physical, general manager Omar Minaya said.

The Phillies, as it turned out, did not get Gary Sheffield. But they should get to see plenty of the righthanded swinging slugger after the New York Mets signed the 40-year-old free agent to a one-year deal yesterday. The Phils had been in talks about acquiring Sheffield, who was released by the Detroit Tigers earlier this week. But the outfielder chose to return to New York, where he played three seasons for the Yankees. The Phils obviously were looking for some righthanded pop off the bench.

Gary Sheffield was one of the preeminent righthanded sluggers of his generation, and the Phillies need a righty bat for their bench. Yesterday, they released a lefthanded slugger, Geoff Jenkins. Although neither side would eliminate the possibility of the 40-year-old Sheffield's becoming a Phillie, multiple team sources told The Inquirer that the chances of signing him are, in the words of one official, "very slim. " General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. would say only that the parties had spoken yesterday after Sheffield was released by the Detroit Tigers.

Detroit Tigers slugger Gary Sheffield called Scott Boras, his former agent, a "bad person" in part for going after money the All-Star says he doesn't deserve. The Tigers designated hitter has said he represented himself in negotiating a $39 million, 3-year contract with the Yankees in 2003. Boras has said Sheffield agreed to let him represent him when his contract with Atlanta ran out and filed paperwork seeking 5 percent of the $39 million. Sheffield vowed to say a lot of "ugly things" about various topics when the case is resolved.

It wasn't until Gary Sheffield had arthroscopic surgery that the Detroit Tigers discovered the full extent of damage to his right shoulder. The club knew, based on last week's examination by Dr. John Uribe, that Sheffield had loose bone chips. Uribe, as expected, cleaned out that debris in Miami. Yesterday's new development was that Uribe found Sheffield also had a torn labrum. Uribe repaired the tear and told the Tigers that Sheffield's arm would need to remain in a sling for the next month.
