Hemond honored to be receiving O'Neil Award

Former Orioles general manager Roland Hemond will receive the Buck O'Neil Lifetime Achievement Award on Saturday at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y. "I was very fond of Buck O'Neil, with great respect for him," Hemond said during a conference call. "I've managed to meet him about four or five times, and as a matter of fact, I presented him with an award from Baseball America nine years ago bearing my name. So it's quite coincidental that it's in reverse now, and I'm sure it's more meaningful for me to get the award than the one that I gave to Buck." Hemond, three-time winner of the MLB Executive of the Year award, was Orioles general manager from 1988 to 1995 and Chicago White Sox GM from 1970 to 1985.

Calvert Hall decides to have its own Friday night lights

Calvert Hall plans to have permanent lights in place at Paul Angelo Russo Stadium for the start of this fall's football and soccer seasons. The school installed temporary lights last fall to gauge how well they would be received by the school, alumni and surrounding community. It was deemed a resounding success when more than 4,000 fans turned out for the school's first Friday night home football game Oct. 9 against then top-ranked Gilman.

p.m. home football games this season — Sept. 16 against Red Lion Christian of Delaware, Oct. 14 against Georgetown Prep, Oct. 21 against Spalding and Nov. 4 against Mount St. Joseph.
