The voice of the Rev. Marion Curtis Bascom, the Baltimore civil rights leader, confidante of Martin Luther King Jr. and anti-war foe, who stepped down in 1995 after leading Douglas Memorial Community Church for 45 years, has lost none of its powerful resonance or purposefulness. Bascom, who will turn 82 in March, shows no signs of slowing down as he continues embracing new projects while caring for his ailing wife of 28 years. "I'm on the board of the Reginald F. Lewis Museum, where I like promoting the story of how black and white Americans are inextricably tied together," Bascom said in an interview the other day from his Park Avenue home.

A lifelong dream wasn't fulfilled when Jonathan Schoop and Tim Bascom stepped out onto the infield grass at Camden Yards and were greeted by a thundering ovation from the Orioles faithful. However, being named Baltimore's 2011 organizational players of the year will be a fond memory for the two prospects to carry on their journey toward the major leagues. Schoop, an infielder, and Bascom, a right-handed starter, were honored before Monday's game against the Boston Red Sox. Schoop won the Brooks Robinson Minor League Player of the Year Award and Bascom was the Jim Palmer Minor League Pitcher of the Year.

Frederick Keys right-hander Tim Bascom, 23, is already something of a baseball miracle. He pitched his junior season at Central Florida with a torn anterior cruciate ligament and went 5-6 with a 2.48 ERA in 80 innings while striking out 90 and walking 25. "It was pretty shocking," said Bascom, who was a preseason third-team All-America choice that year by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association and Collegiate Baseball News. "It was a misdiagnosis. They told me it was just a knee contusion, a little bruise on the knee.

The Rev. Marion C. Bascom is careful to use the term disturbances to describe the events of April 1968. "When they talk of riots, they don't mean riots. They mean despair," says Bascom, 83, his brown eyes warm behind thick glasses as he sits in his Reservoir Hill home. On the coffee table, preserved in a clear plastic block, is the badge he wore as the first black member of Baltimore's Board of Fire Commissioners. As a fire commissioner, he drove freely past roadblocks during the days of chaos, observing the men, women and children who thronged the streets, their faces marked by fear and sorrow.

Pitcher Timothy Bascom, the Orioles' fourth-round selection in this month's amateur draft, will make his professional debut, starting tonight for low Single-A Delmarva. The Shorebirds travel to Lakewood, N.J., for a 7:05 game. Bascom joined Delmarva on Wednesday after signing with the Orioles, who made him their second overall pick. They forfeited their selections in the second and third rounds after signing free-agent relievers Danys Baez and Chad Bradford. The San Diego Padres drafted Bascom last year out of Central Florida, but voided the contract after discovering that he had a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

It's easy to see why so many people in the Orioles' organization, especially director of scouting Joe Jordan, were so excited about landing pitcher Timothy Bascom in the fourth round of last month's amateur draft. Bascom held Hickory to one run over seven inning yesterday in Single-A Delmarva's 4-3, 11-inning loss. He allowed four hits and struck out three. In five starts, Bascom has surrendered only six earned runs and 19 hits in 30 1/3 innings. The Orioles didn't have selections in the second or third rounds, so Bascom represented their second pick in the draft.

When Blast assistant coach David Bascome speaks, people tend to listen. Bascome has dedicated much of his time to helping and mentoring at-risk youths in the Baltimore area through his Hope 4 Life motivational speaking program, which is designed to help children avoid negative influences and find ways to make a positive difference in their communities. When he founded the program four years ago in his native Bermuda, Bascome sought to instill hope in kids who were struggling in school, being bullied or were victims of abuse.

Orioles manager Dave Trembley was going to start backup catcher Guillermo Quiroz tonight with left-hander Adam Loewen on the mound, but those plans might have changed. Ramon Hernandez made a strong case for staying in the lineup after he singled twice and homered last night in the Orioles' 7-4 win over the Seattle Mariners. "I don't know if I'll be able to keep my promise and catch Quiroz," Trembley said, grinning, "so don't hold me to that." Otherwise, Trembley appears set to go ahead with a plan he revealed late in spring training.
