Baseball's owners ended their 120-day lockout of the umpires' union Monday, reaching a five-year bargaining agreement that enables the regular umpires to return Wednesday with raises ranging from 25% to 37.5%. "This is an agreement in which everyone has won," said Richie Phillips, the umpires' counsel. "The leagues have ensured five years of labor peace with the umpires, and the umpires have received the economic advances they felt were necessary."

It looks as if Roger Clemens is going to have the last laugh, after all. Toronto Blue Jay President Paul Beeston was pretty sure his team wouldn't be seeing Clemens when the Boston Red Sox open the season today at the SkyDome. So sure that he even teased Clemens' agents, whom he knows and likes, in a telephone call to the American League office on the day Clemens appealed his five-game suspension. But the joke is on the Blue Jays--and the umpires, too.

Major league umpires filed an unfair labor practices charge against the American and National leagues Tuesday, claiming the leagues plan to lock out umpires from opening-day games unless they reach a contract agreement. Six days before the start of the regular season, umpires' union chief Richie Phillips called an agreement unlikely "if baseball maintains its present posture." Phillips' filing said the leagues were withholding April pay from the 60 umpires.

It is April, and umpires everywhere are being taunted by stadium organists playing "Three Blind Mice." Two young umpires in the Class-A California League, one of baseball's lowest levels, are taking their first road trip of the season. Roland Garza, a Mexican-American from Texas, and Jim Friedrichs, a Kansas farm boy, hadn't met until a few days earlier, but for the next 5 1/2 months they will be constant companions.
