Saturday is a time for the good sports


It's a great Saturday for sports, with America's top golf tourney and an all-American team final in hockey's Stanley Cup. Also look for a pair of locally produced public affairs programs.

* "The Bottom Line" (11 a.m.-noon, WBAL, Channel 11) -- "American Journal" anchor Nancy Glass joins WBAL anchor Donna Hamilton, NBC correspondent Cassandra Clayton and show host and Rep. Kweisi Mfume in a discussion of the "glass ceiling," the limitations put upon women in media.

* "U.S. Open Golf Tournament" (12:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Round three of the Grand Slam event is telecast from the Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in Southampton, N.Y. Dick Enberg is the host, with announcers Bob Trumpy, Dan Hicks and Jim Lampley out on the course. NBC.

* "Class Act" (7 p.m.-7:30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Education reporter Tim Tooten is host of a special that salutes the talented area teachers profiled during the school year just past.

* "Star Trek: Voyager" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WNUV, Channel 54) -- This repeat, "Emanations," insightfully takes up the mystery of death, as the Voyager crew discovers an asteroid to which an alien culture apparently sends its dead.

* "Stanley Cup Finals" (8 p.m.-11 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- Not since 1980 has a Stanley Cup hockey final been on prime-time network TV. Announcers Mike Emrick and John Davidson are in Detroit for tonight's first game between the Detroit Red Wings and New Jersey Devils. Fox.

* "Derby" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- The timing's off here by about a month, isn't it?
