There is a board in the locker room at the Flyers' practice facility that carries the Eastern Conference standings, updated every morning with a felt- tip marker. Each day, a number is written below the standings. The player who wears that number is responsible for the next day's update. This requires the player to purchase a newspaper on his way into practice that contains the late scores from the night before. If you know anything about pro athletes, you will understand that this is seen as a major hardship.

After three straight years of finishing third to Malvern Prep and Monsignor Bonner in the Eastern League's regular season standings, Haverford High coach Andy Rolli hopes this is the year that things will change for the better. But Rolli, admittedly, will have little to do with it. Except for his being behind the bench and giving out orders as he has for each of the last three years, Rolli thinks his players alone can create a successful season. "We'll just have to see how bad the kids want to do it," Rolli said.

The NCAA decided yesterday to reverse a decision it had made earlier this spring to enforce a little-known rule regarding doubleheaders that would have wiped games and statistics from the records of college baseball teams, primarily of Division II and III schools. The move will affect the standings and statistics of 10 Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference baseball teams. The NCAA will allow doubleheaders scheduled against different opponents to count in the overall standings and statistics up until Monday, Chris McKnight, chairman of the NCAA baseball rules committee, said.

The 4x400-meter relay often is the most exciting event at track meets, but rarely the most dramatic. The event usually showcases four of a team's best runners, pitting each against one of sports' toughest tasks - a full lap of a 400-meter track at a full sprint. It's a distance short enough to require full speed, and long enough for runners to feel the burn. The "mile relay," as it's called, is run last at most meets. Fellow athletes, with their events behind them, and fans, their day of watching about over, have one last chance to stand along the track and cheer.

D.C. United clinched second place for itself and pushed the New England Revolution to the brink of elimination when it scored a 3-2 victory in a Major League Soccer game last night. D.C.

Anthony Wright returned to the witness stand Friday for the first time since 1993 to again deny that he had anything to do with the 1991 rape and murder of a 77-year-old Nicetown woman. He also denied ever having confessed to the crime. Wright's testimony mirrored that he gave a Philadelphia Common Pleas Court jury as a 21-year-old. That jury did not believe him, and he was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison. On Friday, Wright, now 44, again tried to convince a jury of his innocence in a retrial won after DNA testing of sperm found in Louise Talley's body proved Wright did not rape her. Wright's lawyer, Samuel W. Silver, got to the point: "Did you kill Mrs. Talley?"

Is it too much to ask for my cellphone to be equipped to carry a few credit cards and my driver's license, yet still remain the sleek, slender beauty that won me over? I have tried - and failed - to love the myriad cellphone wallet cases that hold all I could want, but make my svelte phone a clunky hunk when I grab it to make a call. Now, I have downsized to the less-is-more solution offered by the diminutive new One Touch Silicone Stand. What you get is a slim 3M-adhesive-backed 2.2-by-3.75-inch silicone pouch (for credit cards)

In a city that annually tallies several hundred murders, the slaying that Juan Camacho confessed to committing on May 9 stands out. Not that Camacho's calm demeanor at his preliminary hearing Tuesday, where he was held for trial on murder and related counts, gave any hint of the crimes he claimed to have committed against his estranged girlfriend, Veronica Rodriguez, 27. Those details came from the 911 calls he made to police just after 2...

THE FRATERNAL Order of Police cannot condone politicians that violate the law. The FOP has backed Gov. Wolf, Attorney General Kathleen Kane and Mayor Jim Kenney. All of them support Sanctuary Cites for illegals, felons and terrorists. The FOP has to take on these politicians who support a policy that puts police officers in harm's way. The City of Brotherly Love for felons and the home of the Sanctuary City policy must stop. The Democratic Party cannot condone a policy that puts police officers in danger and law-abiding citizens in harm's way. The FOP cannot keep endorsing politicians who do not obey the law.

Lane Johnson said he purchased basic amino acids online, checked the ingredients with a smartphone application offered by the NFL Players' Association, and believed it was an approved supplement. Drug tests indicated otherwise, and the Eagles tackle is expecting to be levied a 10-game suspension for a second violation of the league's performance-enhancing drug policy. His ire is directed at the NFLPA. "Every supplement I've taken has been approved by the Aegis Shield app, which the NFLPA gives us," Johnson said.

By Grazie Pozo Christie Pope Francis' recent apostolic exhortation, Amoris Laetitia , is a rich and complex document about marriage and family - both the noble Christian ideals and the troubled and broken ways we too often experience them. Many have interpreted the exhortation's merciful tone toward Catholics who are in "irregular" situations as a seismic shift in Church teaching about sexuality and marriage (toward a "modern" sexually liberal outlook). They have been brought back to reality by Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia, who has published pastoral guidelines on Amoris for the priests of his parish.

Gov. Christie said Tuesday that he thinks it is improper to criticize the parents of a Muslim American soldier killed in Iraq who have chided GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump for seeking to keep Muslims out of the United States. Trump's sharp reaction to the parents of Capt. Humayun Khan has drawn widespread condemnation, including from members of his party. Calling the sacrifice made by the family of the slain American soldier "unfathomable," Christie said their loss gives them "the right to say whatever they want, right or wrong.

A large and commanding portrait of Jesus, his face aglow, his arms extended in a welcoming embrace, will greet the faithful who enter the new Mormon Temple, opening its doors in Center City next month. The granite-clad, Federalist-style building near Logan Square will serve as the site of sacramental rituals, or "ordinances," for the region's 41,000 Mormons. "We believe our temples to be the house of the Lord," Elder Larry Y. Wilson, executive director of temple development for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said at the start of a media tour Monday.

Let me thank the 13 million Americans who voted for the political revolution, giving us the 1,846 pledged delegates here tonight - 46 percent of the total. And delegates: Thank you for being here, and for all the work you've done. I look forward to your votes during the roll call on Tuesday night. Let me be as clear as I can be. This election is not about, and has never been about, Hillary Clinton, or Donald Trump, or Bernie Sanders or any of the other candidates who sought the presidency.
