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)

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.

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.

DETROIT - The baseball rocketed toward the right-field stands and Odubel Herrera launched his bat into the air. Two days after being benched for not running out a grounder, Herrera added a touch of style Wednesday afternoon to his three-run homer in the fourth inning of an 8-5 win over the Detroit Tigers. Herrera paused to watch his 427-foot blast, tossed his bat emphatically into the air, and took two hops before running to first at Comerica Park. It was Herrera's fifth home run of the season and it added some needed insurance for Aaron Nola.

DETROIT - The fans at Comerica Park rose to their feet Tuesday night as Justin Verlander stoically walked to the dugout, his glove held by the right hand that perplexed the Phillies for eight innings in a 3-1 loss to the Tigers. The pitcher's night was finished. Odubel Herrera - the victim of Verlander's 10th strikeout of the night - was left pondering the fastball he missed as the pitcher listened to the cheers. It was the 32nd time in Verlander's career, and the third time this season, that he struck out 10 batters.

DETROIT - Odubel Herrera already had three hits on Monday night. The catalyst of the Phillies offense drove in a run in the third inning and helped trigger a run-scoring fifth inning. But Herrera found himself on the bench in the seventh inning of a 5-4 loss to the Tigers when he failed to hustle. Pete Mackanin pulled Herrera after the centerfielder did not run out a grounder to the pitcher. The score was tied at 4. Herrera's spot - which was filled by David Lough - came to bat in the ninth when the Phillies trailed by a run. But none of that mattered.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - They eulogized Tiger Woods on Tuesday. With fond remembrances and wistful words, they gently laid his legend to rest. It was fitting that the ceremony for the passing of his golfing life would be held here, because here is where began for Tiger. In 1997, he set the Masters record at 18-under, and that forever changed the game. In an effort to Tiger-proof the sport, courses got longer, fairways narrower, and greens faster. When that backfired, everyone got fitter.

The Philadelphia Zoo's big cats exhibit has a new addition. The zoo on Friday welcomed Grom, a 7-year-old male Amur tiger, to its tiger family. Grom, who comes to Philadelphia from the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs, Colo., is the zoo's fifth Amur tiger (also known as Siberian tigers). The 300-pound male will be in the zoo's First Niagara Big Cat Falls exhibit only in the mornings as he adjusts to his new home. For now, the public can see him there before noon each day. Grom will turn 8 on May 11. He joins Changbai and Koosaka, sisters who were born at the Philadelphia Zoo in May 2007, and brothers Dimitri and Wiz, who were born at the Columbus Zoo in June 2012 and came to Philadelphia in January 2014.

Detroit Tigers center fielder Cameron Maybin is expected to miss four to six weeks because of a broken left wrist. Manager Brad Ausmus announced the news Thursday, a day after Maybin was hit by a pitch in a spring training game. Another X-ray will be taken in two weeks, Ausmus said. The 28-year-old Maybin was re-acquired by the Tigers from the Atlanta Braves in a November trade for pitchers Ian Krol and Gabe Speier. After being drafted by the Tigers in 2005, he has played most of his major-league career with the Marlins, San Diego and Atlanta.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Memphis point guard Ricky Tarrant Jr. literally took a shot to the mouth, and bounced back to deliver the knockout free throws as the Tigers rallied past Temple, 67-65, in an American Athletic Conference game Wednesday night before 12,247 at FedEx Forum. The Owls, who had built an 11-point lead five minutes into the second half and saw it slip away thanks to Tiger pressure and some suddenly suspect ballhandling, looked to have forced overtime with two seconds left as Josh Brown stole the ball off a rebound and put it home to tie the game at 65 for the Owls (8-7, 3-2)

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.
