Tigers players are angry at Seattle's Ken Griffey Jr. for making an obscene gesture and yelling an obscenity toward their dugout after hitting a game- clinching homer in the eighth inning of Seattle's 9-5 win Sunday. As he neared home plate, Griffey looked into the Tigers' dugout and grabbed his crotch. Then, still looking at the dugout, he yelled a two-word obscenity. "It was the most classless thing I've seen on a field," said Tigers catcher Chad Kreuter. ESPN's cameras were following Griffey in his home-run trot and showed the incident live.

The Marple Newtown Tigers finished their regular season in high fashion when they beat the Strath Haven Panthers, 61-50, at home Tuesday night. The win brought the Tigers' overall season record to an even 12-12 and their Central League record to 8-10. Strath Haven slipped to 11-7 in the league and 14-9 overall. Tigers coach Brian McMahon said the victory was especially important because his team will play in the opening round of the District 1 playoff tomorrow night at Quakertown.

Marple Newtown basketball coach Vince Clarke did not have to wait as long as he might have feared to get his first present of the holiday season. It came in the form of a 56-53 win over Delco Christian on Thursday. "That was the one I was waiting for," said Clarke, whose Tigers won for the first time after three losses. "We started with a tough schedule. You have to play tough people to get ready for the Central League. Now I think we're on the verge. " The host Tigers showed that they could hang tough for 32 minutes and protect a narrow lead against a pretty fair club.

Princeton has settled on a risky formula for winning the NCAA lacrosse championship. Jesse Hubbard scored 34 seconds into overtime yesterday to give the top-ranked Tigers their third title in five years, 13-12, over Virginia. Each of Princeton's titles has come on an overtime goal. The Tigers beat Syracuse in two overtimes in 1992 and topped Virginia in 1994 in an ending that was eerily similar to yesterday's dramatic conclusion. "You have to thank God and your lucky stars to win three overtime games of this importance," Princeton coach Bill Tierney said.

When a basketball team is small - and Marple Newtown's is very small - it has to do the little things to win. Unfortunately for the Tigers, they didn't do the little things in a 57-48 loss to West Chester Henderson in the first round Monday of the West Chester Knights of Columbus Tournament. "I was very disappointed in the way we played," said Marple Newtown coach Vince Clarke, whose squad also fell to Plymouth-Whitemarsh, 66-44, in the consolation game Tuesday. "We didn't box out. We turned the ball over, which we hadn't done this year.

Who were those masked men wearing Marple Newtown uniforms? Marple Newtown coach Jim Smith thought he knew, even though the team that lost to Upper Darby, 20-19, Friday night bore little resemblance to the team that went into the game with only one win. "They're the same kids we've had all year," Smith said. "It's unbelievable. " Upper Darby coach Jack Shingle thought he knew even though the Tigers had shown little spark all season until Friday's near-monster- upset. The Royals (9-1 overall, 7-1 league)

Harry S Truman went into its Suburban One American Liberty Division matchup at Methacton Saturday with two missions. The Tigers wanted to go home with a victory, and they wanted to stop the turnover problem that had plagued them. They were only partially successful. They improved in the turnover department - they had only 2 - but lost, 22-20, despite a solid effort on both sides of the ball. "It seems like we're always one step, one fumble, one block away from winning the game," Truman coach Jan Cechak said.

Holy Family College nursing student Chris McFadden was finishing her shift at Einstein Medical Center on Thursday when she struck up a conversation with a patient, Edward Stil. "He was watching TV," McFadden recalled, "and some basketball action came on. He started talking to me about basketball, and I told him I played. 'Who do you play for?' he asked, and I told him Holy Family. "Then I told him I would score a point for him. " If it had been Hollywood, McFadden, a senior point guard, would have scored a bundle and led her team to victory.

DETROIT - Prince Fielder waved his arms frantically, gleefully calling off his teammates while the crowd at Comerica Park roared. From the moment the big first baseman signed his massive contract in January, an entire city had waited for a chance to celebrate like this. After another dazzling effort by Detroit's starting pitchers and another soaring home run by Miguel Cabrera, Fielder caught the final out to send the Tigers to the World Series - with a sweep of the New York Yankees, no less.

Conestoga basketball coach Pete Fredrickson doesn't consider shooting to be one of his team's strengths, so the Pioneers coach was surprised Friday night at Marple Newtown when his squad shot 53 percent from the field through three quarters. But that percentage isn't difficult to attain if most of the shots are layups. The Pioneers held onto second place in the Central League with an 83-66 win over the Tigers. All five Conestoga starters scored in double figures, and 10 players scored.

ANYONE WHO says golf isn't entertaining wasn't paying attention to the British Open yesterday. There was ESPN analyst Paul Azinger, who won the PGA Championship in 1993, dressing down Tiger Woods. And speaking of dressing, who told John Daly it was OK to wear pajamas on the course? Azinger teed off on Tiger several times, even going so far as to call him a "hack. " Here's are some of Paul's best on-air zingers: * "It's hard to watch the greatest player of this generation be a middle-of-the-pack hack.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland – On a day in which just about anyone with a pulse was going way low at the Old Course, the most notable exception turned out to be the guy who'd won two of his 14 majors here by a combined 13 strokes. That, of course, was a long time ago, when days like this were his domain. But Tiger Woods will turn 40 in a little over five months. And he's now a little over seven years removed from his last indelible moment. As occasionally happens, the birthplace of golf was left defenseless by rather benign early weather conditions on Thursday.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland –  Tiger Woods is listed at 25-1 by Ladbroke's in his quest to win a fourth claret jug in the Open Championship, which begins tomorrow on the Old Course, where he won by eight in 2000 and again by a handful when golf's oldest major returned to its home five years later. You could argue that weighing all factors, it actually should be more like 250-1, even with defending champion Rory McIlroy, the bloke who might be the next Tiger, recuperating from the recent soccer mishap that left him with a ruptured ankle ligament (brain freeze?

Rocky took the stage at 12:30 p.m. Sunday in Cape May Court House to pick a winner in the women's World Cup soccer finals - the U.S. vs. Japan. No, not that Rocky. This Rocky is the Cape May County Park and Zoo's Siberian tiger and the top cat at the Jersey Shore. The free Cape May zoo offers vacationers a break from sea and sand, and expects to host 500,000 visitors in 2015, up from 450,000 last year. On Sunday, parents, children, and assorted strollers pressed up against newly installed, handwoven steel wire mesh - which replaces old-fashioned chain-link fencing - around Rocky's grassy habitat.

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. - There is no NBA rule to make LeBron James self-deprecating. The NFL cannot force Marshawn Lynch to be a good sport, and Major League Baseball could never convince Barry Bonds to be pleasant. The same is true with Tiger. Neither the PGA Tour nor the USGA nor the legions of fans who follow him can coerce the most important golfer in history to be genuine or forthcoming about anything but the mechanics of the game. As he resumes his quest to catch Jack Nicklaus today at the U.S. Open, Woods becomes further diminished by the play and the personalties of his peers.

TIGER WOODS had the most memorable last-place finish in the history of golf yesterday. Woods, who is reinventing his swing, shot an 85 at the Memorial in Dublin, Ohio, on Saturday, his worst single-day score in 20 years on the PGA Tour. He followed that with a 2-over-par 74 yesterday to finish a career-worst 14-over-par 302, his highest score ever in a 72-hole tournament. That puts him on par with Roy McAvoy, the fictional golfer played by Kevin Costner in the film "Tin Cup" for unforgettable closing rounds.

Yesterday, he and Lindsey Vonn announced their breakup after seeing each other for more than two years "Lindsey and I have mutually decided to stop dating," Woods said on his website under the headline "A personal message from Tiger.

Springfield (Delco) softball coach Todd Odgers figured the hits were going to come eventually. Tori DePietro and Ashley Scarpato thought so too. And with those hits, runs were sure to follow for the Cougars. But for the first five innings of what would eventually be a 7-0 Central League victory over Marple Newtown, the host Cougars struggled at the plate. A popup to second. A fly out to left field. A fly ball caught foul on the first-base side. Inning after inning, the Cougars (13-0 overall, 11-0 league)

THE MOST successful Tiger in the sporting world yesterday was not Eldrick Woods down at Augusta, but Anthony "Tiger" Jones. The former Soul wideout came back to town with the Jacksonville Sharks to haul in five touchdown passes and total 13 receptions for 239 yards. But the rest of the gang from North Florida couldn't match Jones' homecoming effort, as the Soul (3-0) topped the Sharks, 63-52, in front of a crowd of 9,043 at the Wells Fargo Center. Jones spent the previous three seasons in Philly, racking up 119 scores during his tenure before flying south for a 1-year deal with Jacksonville (0-3)

AUGUSTA, Ga. - If you'd told CBS before the first ball was struck this week that Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods would be going out in the second-to-last group on Masters Sunday, they probably would've signed up. Especially the Tiger part. But who would ever figure that two of the five guys tied for fifth place after the first 54 holes of the season's first major would also be 10 strokes behind the record-setting pace being set by last April's runner-up, who appears to be about as precocious as they were at 21?
