Dan Connolly

Dan Connolly has been covering sports for 18 years, and baseball and the Orioles for 14 seasons, including the past 10 with The Baltimore Sun. His first year covering baseball on a daily basis was Cal Ripken Jr.'s final season as a player. It's believed that is just a coincidence.

Last call at the bar: Farewell and thanks

Although it¿s somewhat embarrassing to write, I sort of envisioned myself as a current-day John Steadman, a Baltimore boy who was afforded the crazy opportunity to work at his hometown newspaper and then spent decades upon decades chronicling the glories and pratfalls of the local sports teams. I made it through one decade. Technically, a decade and a half if you count the four years I spent writing about, and traveling with, the Orioles for the York (Pa.) Daily Record.
