First casualty

Baltimore lost B. K. Williams in pre-game warmups when the veteran slotback tore his Achilles' tendon. He was replaced in the starting lineup by Shawn Beals.

C7 The injury almost certainly ended Williams' season.

New blood

Paul Beeston, who was the first front-office employee hired by the Toronto Blue Jays in 1976 and worked his way up to become the baseball team's chief operating officer in 1989, is trying to revive the Argos, who finished last in the Eastern Division last season with a 3-15 record.

Regarded as poor cousins to the Blue Jays, the Argos averaged 25,334 fans at home last season, a dip of almost 10,000 a game from the previous year.

Beeston, 49, was named president of the Argos last May when the team changed ownership.
