If you didn't see it on 33rd Street, see it in your living room.

The Baltimore Orioles are offering "The Final Weekend," a videotape of the weekend's highlights at Memorial Stadium. The tape, which runs more than one hour, includes footage of John Unitas and Brooks Robinson throwing out the first balls before Sunday's final game, the final pitches of the last game and the post-game ceremonies featuring former Orioles players.

The tape is $14.95 (plus 75 cents tax and $2 postage and handling). To order, make a check or money order payable to The Orioles Inc., and send it to the Orioles, Memorial Stadium, Baltimore, Md., 21218. The tape can be purchased by credit card by calling the team at 243-9800. The tape should be available in two weeks. Two days after the final game, the Orioles had taken 1,000 orders, a team official said.

* Orioles second baseman Bill Ripken underwent surgery Monday to remove a bone chip from his left ankle. The surgery was performed by team orthopedist Dr. Charles Silberstein. Ripken is expected to recover fully. Orioles hitting coach Tom McCraw also had surgery, for removal of a bone spur from his left elbow.

Yesterday, the team announced that it had reinstated infielder Jeff McKnight and pitcher Brian DuBois to its winter roster. Both players recently suffered injuries. McKnight had shoulder surgery in July. DuBois is recovering from elbow surgery performed in 1990. The Orioles have 39 players on the roster, one under the limit.
