Jim Palmer became the third Orioles great to be immortalized in bronze and put on display in the Garden of Greats behind center field at Camden Yards on Saturday afternoon, joining Frank Robinson and Earl Weaver and awaiting the arrival of Eddie Murray, Cal Ripken and Brooks Robinson later this season.
There will never again be anyone like Earl Weaver, whose volatile personality and keenly analytical baseball mind played a lot bigger role than he wants to admit in the uninterrupted success that made the Orioles one of the cornerstone franchises in the American League from the 1960s into the 1980s.

On the second Wednesday of each month, Catonsville Elementary School counts the number of people who drive to school each day. Until Wednesday , they had seen a steady decline in the number of cars that showed up. The threat of snow, they reasoned, meant the school had 72 cars show up that morning.
