Former Cincinnati Reds shortstop Barry Larkin, who at times was overshadowed at the position by his contemporary -- the Orioles' Cal Ripken Jr. -- was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame this afternoon. Larkin, in his second year of eligibility, was named on 86.4 percent (495 votes of 573 ballots) of possible ballots submitted by qualifying members of the Baseball Writers Association of America. A player needs 75 percent inclusion on the ballots to gain enshrinement.

He thanked Orioles fans, the team's public-relations and production staffs, the coaching staff, the trainers."If I missed anybody, I didn't mean to," B. J. Surhoff said. "I wanted to thank those people specifically for helping me get to this point."Surhoff, 34, has had plenty of time to prepare his classy acceptance speech: It took him 13 seasons, 1,636 games and 5,872 at-bats to become an All-Star.So many people were happy for him yesterday. Here are the reflections of four men who knew him way back when:The scout: Milwaukee scouting director Ken Califano was the area scout assigned to Surhoff when the Brewers selected the North Carolina catcher with the No. 1 pick of the 1985 draft -- ahead of Will Clark (No. 2)

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Major League Baseball revived the winter meetings this year, hoping that an off-season oasis of hot stove news would help the sport build on the public relations benefit of one of the most exciting seasons in recent memory.Did they succeed?Not really.The industry was shaken by the seven-year, $105 million deal that the Los Angeles Dodgers gave to pitcher Kevin Brown -- which certainly put baseball in a glaring spotlight -- but the fate of Brown and fellow superstar pitcher Roger Clemens appeared to have the opposite effect on the image of the game.

Ask Roberto Alomar how he is feeling physically these days, and he says, "I'm not even close to being 90 percent healthy."But the All-Star second baseman is strictly evaluating his mobility in the field and his ability to run the bases. Hitting-wise, he couldn't be better.Since returning to the lineup from a groin pull Sept. 8, Alomar is batting .500 (23-for-46) including six doubles, two homers and 12 RBIs while raising his average from .298 to a team-high .322 among the regulars.Yesterday at Camden Yards was typical of his torrid streak.

Reading Time: Two Minutes.Cold in Pittsburgh, wet in San Francisco. Hey, it will be mid-January when the NFL conference championships are staged Sunday in these cities and that's what the weather's supposed to be. You can bet the media won't let it go at that, however.* One of the great recruiting stories is how Providence College landed Hall of Fame player and now winningest NBA coach Lenny Wilkens. Friars coach Joe Mullaney was checking out Brooklyn in the mid-'50s and was turned down by a kid when a playground game caught his eye as he was getting into his car. He checked it out, was captivated by Wilkens' defensive brilliance, a rarity in pickup games, and the rest, as they say, is history.
