Forty-six years later, the photograph still gives people goose bumps. There's Dave McNally, Baltimore's "other" No. 19, the triumphant pitcher whose grin is as wide as his native Montana. And Andy Etchebarren, the catcher who's poised to embrace him, mask still on and mitt in hand. And there, on the left, is a jubilant Brooks Robinson, or at least a chunk of him: the Orioles' third baseman is airborne and looks as if he parachuted into Memorial Stadium. Why? The Birds had just swept the 1966 World Series in four straight games.

The Double-A All-Star Game will be played in Bowie this season; by then, the host Baysox should be jelling as a force in the Eastern League. "As the year goes on, we'll get better and better," new manager Andy Etchebarren said of his fledgling team that will accent speed. "I've got the feeling that a lot of these kids will be maturing." The Baysox begin their seventh year at Prince George's Stadium tomorrow with 1997 first-round draftees Jayson Werth and Darnell McDonald heading an array of prospects that form their nucleus.

The Orioles scratched their plans to activate Chris Richard from the disabled list after Richard strained his right gluteus muscle Wednesday night doing fielding drills before Triple-A Rochester's game at Toledo. Richard will remain on his rehabilitation assignment with Rochester, and the Orioles will recall infielder Brian Roberts for tonight's game in Boston against the Red Sox. Roberts was in line for a promotion last week, but the Orioles were in Toronto and had to leave Roberts with Rochester because he didn't have his passport on the East Coast.

The 1966 Orioles never believed they were out of a game, no matter the score, no matter the inning."If we had one out and were down by five with nobody on, we still felt like we had a chance to win that ballgame," said Hall of Famer Frank Robinson, then the club's right fielder."

Former Orioles yesterday painted a portrait of Jerry Hoffberger as a compassionate and caring man who impressed them as a friend who thoroughly enjoyed his ownership of the club. Hoffberger, who led the Orioles to their greatest heights during a 14-year stewardship from 1965 to '79, died Friday night at age 80. "He truly cared about the players," said former catcher Andy Etchebarren, now the manager of the Single-A Frederick Keys. "He'd come in and ask about you, whether you had any problems with the family or kids that he could help you with.

Steve Bechler's Triple-A debut will be etched in his memory forever. In Myrtle Beach, S.C., with his Frederick teammates, Bechler "was just hanging out in the clubhouse ready to go to the airport" for the Single-A All-Star Game in California when the call came. "They told me I was going up and I thought they meant Bowie," said Bechler, a third-round pick in the 1998 draft. "Then I heard the trainer talking about Toledo and I was shocked, in awe." Toledo meant Bechler would be pitching for the Triple-A Rochester Red Wings instead of the Carolina League All-Stars, but it also meant a traveler's nightmare.

The Orioles filled an opening in their bullpen yesterday by recalling Jason Johnson from Triple-A Rochester, to which he had returned on July 7 after losing all eight decisions. Johnson will pitch in long and middle relief, but could rejoin the rotation at a later date. He was 2-1 with a 1.80 ERA in five starts with Rochester, walking 15 and striking out 37. Most critical to the Orioles, he began getting ahead of hitters. "That's the way I'm capable of throwing. I've been saying it all year.

You never know whether a man who pitches a no-hitter, as Chicago's Wilson Alvarez did against the Orioles here yesterday, is the real thing or simply the beneficiary of a good day and some lucky breaks.Alvarez, 21, in only his second major-league start, appears to have the talent to be for real -- although in his first major-league start in 1989 he retired none of the five hitters he faced.A pitcher who once threw a no-hitter in his first major-league start was Bobo Holloman. He tossed one in 1953 for the St. Louis Browns against the Philadelphia A's.Holloman finished the year 3-7. It was his only major-league season.
