Steve Bumbry already has a head start on his father. The Dulaney senior, a two-time All-Metro center fielder, has a baseball scholarship to Virginia Tech. His father, former Oriole Al Bumbry, earned a basketball scholarship to Virginia State College and didn't play baseball until his senior year there. Steve Bumbry also has a big advantage over his father - he's had Al Bumbry teaching him the game since he was a small child. And that teacher-student relationship has been taken a step further this season.

Standing on the field at Camden Yards on Monday afternoon, Orioles top offensive prospect Manny Machado said he hoped to be here again in two years wearing a big league uniform. "It's great to see what these guys are going through right now, and, hopefully within the next two years, I'll be up here and do the same thing they are doing," said the 19-year-old shortstop, who was taken third overall in the 2010 amateur draft. High-A Frederick had the day off, so Machado and his roommate, Keys outfielder Steven Bumbry , drove to Camden Yards to watch batting practice, take in a game and conduct a pre-game interview with the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network.

ON SATURDAY night, I stood in the press box at Camden Yards and watched the final game of Cal Ripken's glorious career, watched the night sky light up with fireworks and 48,000 fans radiate both joy and sadness as a city said goodbye to a beloved sports legend. A little over 12 hours later, as I settled in to watch the Ravens play the Tennessee Titans, we were in a shooting war in Afghanistan, and the night sky over that sad, desperate country was lit up with tracer rounds and anti-aircraft fire.
