DETROIT -- The Orioles struck first in Game 3 of the American League Division Series -- and they did it in a familiar fashion. Designated hitter Nelson Cruz went deep in October. He has done that a bit. In the sixth inning, Cruz planted an 84-mph changeup from Tigers left-hander David Price just over the wall next to the foul pole in right field for a two-run homer to break a scoreless tie. A frustrated Tigers fan caught the ball and then placed it on the edge of the wall.

A century ago in spring training, a rawboned Orioles rookie stepped to the plate, swung from the heels and hit a fastball deep to right field. The ball landed in a rut in a cornfield, more than 400 feet from home plate. In Fayetteville, N.C., a historic marker notes the spot where George Herman Ruth, 19, hit his first professional home run in his first outing as an Oriole in 1914. He wasn't yet The Babe - teammates would pin that nickname on him within the month - but he surely was Baltimore's own. That Ruth began his career with his hometown team surprises many, sports historian Mark Millikin said.

Ruth's first train ride was with the Baltimore Orioles, to Fayetteville, N.C., for his first spring training. His teammates called him "Dunnie's Babe." Sportswriters shortened it to Babe. He homered in his first pickup game as a professional and was so impressive as a rookie that he attracted the attention of the Boston Red Sox, who bought him from the minor-league Orioles and put Ruth in the major leagues in July 1914, less than six months after his departure from St. Mary's.

It must have been the hand-eye. Nestled in that bosun's body, concealed in those meaty arms, lurking behind those tiny, narrow-set eyes there had to be something akin to a radar system -- computer driven, of course, so precisely engineered it could read the rotation on the ball, solve the intercept problem, flash the correct coordinates down the arms to the wrists while simultaneously unleashing the full strength of the trunk, all this in less than three-hundredths...

HE HAD one of the most recognized names of the 20th century and was renowned as baseball's greatest star. Years ago, a New York sportswriter dubbed the then-magnificent Yankee Stadium as "the house that Ruth built," a phrase that stuck. Yes, George Herman Ruth is America's Sultan of Swat and the greatest Yankee of them all, but his roots are anchored in the by-gone discipline of St. Mary's Industrial School and the blue-collar lifestyle of the Baltimore waterfront.He spent his first 19 years here, acquired life's necessary bag of tools here and learned to play the game of baseball right here.

Your recent article about Babe Ruth incorrectly implied that the Baltimore Orioles stopped in Fayetteville, N.C., en route to spring training in Florida ( "Babe Ruth's first in flight in Fayetteville," Feb. 27). In 1914, only a few baseball teams traveled as far south as Florida for spring training. Fayetteville, not Florida, was the Orioles' destination, and it was also the team's spring training headquarters during Babe Ruth's rookie professional season. The article also included a clipping with a photograph purported to be "the first picture ever made of Babe Ruth as a professional ball player.

On Saturday, March 7, 1914, George Herman Ruth planted his feet in the batter's box of the baseball diamond at the Cape Fear Fair Grounds in Fayetteville, N.C., and slammed a pitch. The confident rookie, who had just signed with the Baltimore Orioles, sent the ball soaring 350 feet, hitting his first home run as a professional baseball player. Fayetteville has never let go of that historic moment. Babe Ruth is still reverently referred to, his name inserted into local newspaper articles and spotlighted at a couple of local museums.

It's difficult to predict whether the audience or the 60 cast members will get a bigger kick out of the three performances of "Babes in Toyland" on Saturday, Dec. 7, and Sunday, Dec. 8. For 48 years, the Baltimore Actors' Theatre has welcomed the holidays by presenting the Victor Herbert operetta known for its poignant theme song, "Toyland," and the storied parade of the wooden soldiers. For nearly 30 years, Kraushaar Auditorium at Goucher College has been the venue. Riderwood resident Jack Chamberlain, 87, has played the Master Toymaker in the operetta for 22 years.

A man walks into a bar -- except that it's eight women, and it's a wine shop. And it's not just another joke, although fun reigns at this ladies' night out. Despite its moniker, i.m. Wine in Fulton also offers an extensive inventory of craft beer and thus is just the spot for monthly get-togethers of the Brew Babes, Maryland's own chapter of Barley's Angels. The suds-loving mother organization -- two years old and already gone international -- was formed in Portland, Ore., as a ladies-only educational beer club, not just a gathering of chuggers.

Saint Agnes Hospital and the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation said Friday that they have raised $1.4 million to renovate the baseball field of the former Cardinal Gibbons School, preserving a site where Babe Ruth once played. The hospital, meanwhile, is firming up plans to add homes and offices around the field, on the campus of the Catholic school that closed in 2010. Saint Agnes plans to break ground on the baseball field within the next year, launching what officials have envisioned as Gibbons Commons, a mixed-use development on Caton Avenue, across the street from the hospital.

In case you missed it last night, Orioles utility man Danny Valencia was linked to a now-defunct South Florida clinic, Biogenesis, that allegedly provided performance-enhancing drugs to Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez, among others. In a report that came out Tuesday night, Yahoo Sports had documents from the clinic that include Valencia's name, though the list doesn't connect Valencia to any specific performance-enhancing drug. On a national scope, Valencia, who is with his third organization since the beginning of the 2012 season, is a footnote.
