The ensemble cast includes Eddie Cibran, Michael Madsen and Michael Murphy.

On the upside, I thought the City of Hagerstown's new brickwork looked mah-velous. And really, what's a little racism if you have good streetscapes? All in all, we survived ESPN's hard look at the city in light of the recent Willie Mays unpleasantness. Nice camera angles, good production values and all. Lew Metzner cuts a fine figure on television - the camera loves you, Lew. If you just can't acclimate yourself to 21st century thought, at least in the name of decency try to keep those feelings restrained to places where they belong, like the dark recesses of your heart, or Mail Call.

With Major League Baseball's first regular-season pitch scheduled just 12 days away, it's time to look at what to expect from the Baltimore Orioles. At a glance, it looks bleak. Closer up, it gets worse. Not only has Cal Ripken Jr. retired, but the O's have done little to improve on a team that went 63-98 last year. Yes, they acquired free agent Marty Cordova. Yes, he probably will add some pop to the lineup. Yes, a full season from Jay Gibbons, David Segui and Mike Bordick would help.

I confess to only hanging around the fringes of NASCAR. I might catch a little of Daytona and keep up with the chase standings. But the real reason I keep coming back to NASCAR time and time again is headlines like this one: “Tony Stewart Downplays Goosing Kevin Harvick's Wife.” Even if you know nothing, or care nothing, for car racing, I defy you to skip past a headline like that. And I know you don't want to waste precious seconds looking it up on your own, so here's the lede, as reported by ESPN: “A video of Tony Stewart grabbing the rear end of Kevin Harvick's wife has gone viral, but the three-time Sprint Cup champion has downplayed the incident as a routine between friends that he believes brings good luck.” Weird.

ESPN won't have to go far to possibly catch some nightly web gems or home run highlights. They will be happening in its own back yard, beginning today with the start of the Little League 11-12 Mid-Atlantic Regional Tournament in Bristol, Conn. Federal Little League would like nothing better than have its own highlight reel of successes. Federal trades its local name and dons the state colors to become known as "Maryland," after capturing the state title and the regional berth on July 25. Federal makes its debut Saturday at 2 p.m. against Delaware to open pool play in the six-team field.

BRISTOL, Conn. -- There was only one thing the Hagerstown Federal Little League 11-12 All-Stars didn't do Friday afternoon -- celebrate. That can wait for Monday. Federal was all business in its Mid-Atlantic Regional semifinal against New Jersey champion Bordentown, and it took care of business in typical fashion -- with five home runs -- for a 10-0 victory in 3 1/2 innings. "We did what we set as a goal today," Federal manager Bill Abeles Jr. said. "We got good offense and good defense, and we're hard to beat when we do that.

pepperb@herald-mail.com HAGERSTOWN - A story that ran three times Tuesday on ESPN's "Outside the Lines" featuring Hagerstown's decision not to name a section of road or baseball field after black baseball great Willie Mays painted the city as a racist community. The ESPN reporter, Mark Schwarz, was shown in the nearly 20-minute segment, which ran on ESPN and ESPN2, recounting a conversation he had with a local businessman who told him racial slurs are still being cast in the city.
