Jim Wolf doesn't know how much he is being paid for working as a fill-in umpire in the major leagues. "I don't care," he said. Wolf, 30, feels like he's breathing rarefied air from the highest mountaintop. The excitement of reaching the majors 82 days after his younger brother, Randy, made it as a pitcher with the Philadephia Phillies is a unique accomplishment. These two El Camino Real High graduates separated by seven years in age have earned a place in baseball history.

Top Jimmy & the Original Rhythm Pigs' powerful, hourlong set on Friday at Raji's wasn't quite the double-edged end of an era it had promised to be: Contrary to published reports, the Hollywood Boulevard club isn't closing, it's just changing owners. But with lead guitarist Carlos Guitarlos settled in San Francisco and mighty bassist Gil T. now headed off to Austin, the occasional reunions of the veteran local blues-hounds will be a more tenuous proposition.

The Encino South American Legion baseball team cried Wolf last week. Now, Reseda-Cleveland is crying foul. The District 20 playoffs will begin today at Birmingham High amid controversy, with Reseda North playing Newhall-Saugus at 9:30 a.m. and Burbank playing Woodland Hills at 1 p.m. When the last game of the opening round starts at 4:30, however, it will be Encino South (9-12), not Reseda-Cleveland (11-9), that plays North Hollywood (13-7-1).

A protest filed against Woodland Hills by El Segundo, another team in the state tournament, was upheld late Tuesday night by state American Legion Commissioner Julio Yniquez. The protest charged Woodland Hills with violating the American Legion's player eligibility rule.

Two brothers from West Hills, one working in Phoenix, Ariz., and the other in Clearwater, Fla., are taking small steps on a rarely traveled path that could lead to a special moment in baseball history. Jimmy Wolf, 28, is a promising umpire in the Arizona Instructional League. Randy Wolf, 21, is a top pitching prospect in the Florida Instructional League. Both dream of making the major leagues--together. "It would be pretty remarkable," Jimmy said. "It would be cool," Randy said.
