Happy birthday, Manny!
Turning 21 is usually one of life's big milestones. But major leaguer Manny Machado already has some incredible accomplishments for a minor. The star Orioles third baseman, whose birthday is Saturday, July 6, was drafted in 2010, joined the team last August and is currently on pace to break Earl Webb's record for doubles.
While Machado will be in New York facing the Yankees on Saturday, he'll be back in Baltimore Monday to play the Rangers and will have plenty of time to enjoy being 21 in Baltimore. In no particular order, here are 10 ways Machado can celebrate being 21 in Baltimore, from rolling the dice at Maryland Live Casino to sipping a Natty Boh-tini at Della Rose's.

Manny Machado has had a great season so far with the Baltimore Orioles. Not only is he a talented player but his youth gives him a glow of happiness that every parent wants to see in their child as they experience their dream come true.
Now, however, The Sun's staff is suggesting that to celebrate his 21st birthday on Saturday, he starts out in the morning drinking, and continues on with gambling, and tops off the day at a strip joint ("10 ways Manny Machado can celebrate his 21st birthday in Baltimore," July 5).
Please, Manny, don't listen to them! You'll end up with a headache, your girlfriend will be mad at you, and you'll strike out every time at bat! Be a good boy. We all love you and want to see you continue in your successful season.
