Rapper-actor Snoop Dogg will avoid jail time after pleading no contest Wednesday to two felony charges -- but he might be legally allowed to continue smoking marijuana. The entertainer, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, entered the plea to a charge of gun possession by a convicted felon and a marijuana-related drug charge, prosecutors said. Dogg, 35, appeared before Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Terry Smerling in Pasadena clad in a leather jacket, black jeans and a T-shirt.

BASEBALL GAME OF THE DAY Long Beach Wilson (21-10) at Mission Viejo Capistrano Valley (21-6) Today at 3:15 p.m. Why it matters: The first round of the Southern Section Division I playoffs begins with Wilson, a finalist last season, facing perhaps the No. 1 high school pitching prospect in the nation -- left-hander Tyler Matzek, who is 9-1 and set to become a first-round draft choice next month.

The sun is setting a burnished orange, and three groups of children jog across the football field in their pads and helmets to the sideline. It's quitting time on a pleasant summer evening, no school for a while yet, but 10-year-old Xavier Bernal isn't grinning. For more than four decades, this field at Rowland High School in Rowland Heights has teemed with football players ages 5 to 14, so many jostling Rowland Raiders that each of the program's age divisions overran the next.

There's still a week before Labor Day brings an unofficial end to the season, but there's little doubt that the L.A. party of the summer is in the books: It was Thursday's concert at the Greek Theatre featuring Snoop Dogg, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Ice Cube, three headline-level attractions that joined forces in a fundraiser for Snoop's youth football league.

What with all the activity, all the laughing and kids running around and families sitting on park blankets eating turkey sandwiches, this could be the suburbs. But it's South L.A., next to the Harbor Freeway and El Segundo Avenue, one of the most blighted pockets of urban America. It's 7 at night at Helen Keller Park. The baseball field and the basketball court glimmer under tall lights.

"It was a great year," says a coach, gesturing toward 22 hopeful boys, a youth football team from the most dangerous parts of Los Angeles. "Great, because we didn't have to bury a single one of them." There they sit, the California Cowboys -- rangy, short, bony, squat, and everything in between -- a group of 12- and 13-year-olds sitting in a tense locker room at the Home Depot Center in Carson.

A year ago, the big Hollywood hip-hop story was that Snoop Dogg, a one-time murder suspect, had successfully recast himself as a sly but safe mainstream brand-name: As a movie star, an in-demand corporate pitchman and even as a celebrity coach for local youth football, the old gangsta scowl was gone and Snoop seemed almost, well, cuddly. This just in: Snoop still has hard edges.

Snoop Dogg had come to Burbank to let loose the lion. Engulfed by a haze of marijuana smoke thick as London fog in a hotel suite high above the so-called Media Capital of the World, the gangsta rap superstar surrendered himself to a hairdresser's strenuous manipulations as she twisted and caressed his skinny braids into cheroot-shaped dreadlocks. The Doggfather's coiffure needed to be Rastafari-real, after all, for his television debut as the new Snoop. One Love Snoop. Reggae Snoop.

The group of young boys shifted uneasily, eyes fixed on the gangly figure towering over them. They were an exclusive audience about to hear Snoop Dogg do his latest rap. But they didn't feel so lucky -- they knew it was going to be a bad rap on them. "You better go gangsta -- they can't beat us, so they're tryin' to cheat us!"
