The Babe's 101st

Help celebrate the 101st birthday of Baltimore's greatest slugger with a cake and champagne toast and applaud the six winners of the "Birthday Cards for the Babe" contest at noon Feb. 6 at the Babe Ruth Museum, 216 Emory St. Recently acquired Babe Ruth and Oriole memorabilia will be unveiled in the museum's "New Stuff" exhibit area. The festivities will continue from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in Bambino's at Oriole Park at Camden Yards for a traditional baseball menu of all-you-can-eat hot dogs, hot pretzels, popcorn, beer, soft drinks and appearances by former Orioles Mark Williamson and Gregg Olson.

Admission to the museum is free from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for the celebration; dinner tickets are $15 with proceeds to benefit the museum. Call (410) 727-1539. The award-winning children's entertainer Barry Louis Polisar will perform his slightly off-the-wall and entertaining songs Sunday at a family concert at 2 p.m. at the Meeting House, Oakland Mills, 5885 Robert Oliver Place in Columbia. Mr. Polisar, who stars in the educational television show for kids "Field Trip," has been writing and singing children's songs for more than 20 years.

The performance is sponsored by Temple Isaiah Religious School. Tickets are $6. Call (410) 992-9144.
