  • With ears still ringing...

     
    If the Orioles go through with plans to put “Baltimore” on the road jerseys, they should wear them whenever the Red Sox come to Camden Yards. There had to be more noise here for Manny Ramirez’s 500th home run than......
  • The Greatest Oriole

    The flag, which fluttered above left field at Memorial Stadium, was a study in simplicity - a surprisingly unobtrusive reminder of the day that Frank Robinson became the only player to hit a baseball completely out of the old ballpark. Maybe you have...
  • Switch-hitting experiment paid off

    The Orioles knew they had something special at Double-A Asheville in 1975, even if Eddie Murray wasn't showing it at the plate. He was 19 then, and the accolades were already piling up, so this hardly seemed like the time for drastic measures or new...
  • Study was his swing factor

    If Eddie Murray made it look easy, then he can add illusionist to his long list of baseball skills. There was nothing simple about the way he approached hitting. Lesser batsmen may insist that it comes down to one fundamental equation - see the ball, hit...
  • '96 was balm in healing process

    WILL they chant his name in Cooperstown, the way they used to at Memorial Stadium, when the quiet kid out of Los Angeles took over first base for the Orioles, then never stopped producing hits and homers and runs, all the way back to Camden Yards? Will...

    Miami Marlins' Logan Morrison a finalist for prestigious Hutch Award for community service
    I'm not sure if Logan Morrison will stay healthy or productive enough to be part of the Miami Marlins' future, but it's clear he's already distinguished himself with good deeds off the field. Morrison, the young outfielder and first baseman, was one of...
  • Tommy Lasorda, Tony La Russa on ‘Face the Nation’; Bill O’Reilly on ‘This Week’

     
    You'll hear a lot about presidential politics on Sunday morning, but CBS' “Face the Nation” plans a baseball panel to celebrate Washington's first postseason play in 79 years. The panel will feature former managers Tony La Russa of the St....

    ST. LOUIS (AP) — Stan Musial, one of baseball's greatest hitters and a Hall of Famer with the St. Louis Cardinals for more than two decades, died Saturday. He was 92. Stan the Man won seven National League batting titles, was a three-time MVP and...
  • Virginia is for lovers of book festivals!

    Virginia is for lovers of book festivals!
    Saturday is a big day in Virginia’s writing community. Almost a year of planning and coordinating will culminate in a gathering of more than a dozen nationally best-selling authors in one place, at one time, to describe how they craft the stories we...
  • Carnett: Growing up in an international world

    My 13-year-old grandson, Ethan, is quite a soccer player, if I do say so myself. He's played club-level soccer for the last several years in his North Carolina community, and he's a star on his middle school's varsity soccer squad. Whenever we travel...

    Derek Jeter Is Still Playing The Game The Right Way
    Once upon a time in baseball, it was easy to enjoy greatness. Today, in the shadow of performance-enhancing drugs (known as PEDs), enjoying the players who stack up awe-inspiring numbers just ain't easy. Players, rightly or wrongly, are under the...
