The fastest man in baseball drives with caution. When Terrance Gore was a sophomore in high school, his mother spent about $500 on a 1980 El Camino, and her son restored it with care. He painted the car candy apple red, upgraded the engine and installed 22-inch chrome rims. “That's my baby,” Gore said. He treats his wheels with reverence. The vehicle resides under cover at his home in Georgia. No one is allowed to drive it. Gore expected to return home to his car after the minor-league season ended.

Davey Johnson was the last Orioles manager to lead the team to the ALCS, and he managed four other clubs, including most recently the Washington Nationals. He seemed to pick Baltimore over his most recent stop in an MLB Network Radio interview this morning. Johnson was asked about seeing baseball revived in Baltimore, and said it's “wonderful” to see. “I think the best fans in baseball are right around that Baltimore area,” Johnson said. “Now we're getting baseball fans in Washington, which has mostly been a football town, but I love the people in that area.

There are all sorts of statistics out there to help you discern who's going to have the advantage in the upcoming American League Championship Series between the Orioles and the Kansas City Royals, but you know - in your hearts - that none of that stuff matters in the postseason. If it did, the Los Angeles Angels would be hosting the Detroit Tigers in Game 1 on Friday night. The ALCS opener will be at Camden Yards and will feature a Cinderella opponent from just outside the Land of Oz because of factors that cannot be appraised with the usual baseball metrics.

Marty Costes battered Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference pitching last season, his first after being home schooled. The junior's performance in the tough MIAA was apparently enough to convince Maryland coach John Szefc that the Archbishop Curley infielder should be a Terp. Costes, now a senior, orally committed to play baseball at Maryland on Friday, the day he was offered a full scholarship. "I like the philosophy of the coaching staff," Costes said on Sunday.

During the dark days of Baltimore baseball, the true fans never gave up. Despite the 14 losing seasons. Despite the maddening trades. Despite the deriding jokes from friends in New York or Boston. So when the Orioles on Sunday finally locked up a spot in the American League Championship Series for the first time in nearly a generation, fans were elated. After sweeping the Detroit Tigers in the AL Division Series, the Orioles need to win four games in the upcoming best-of-seven series to earn their first World Series appearance in 31 years.

Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop listening to the Orioles on the radio on the front porch. Grandpa keeping score with pencil and paper. The yells of the fans floating over from Memorial Stadium. Chuck Thompson saying, "Ain't the beer cold. " Kids falling asleep on the ride home from the game. For many Baltimoreans, the story of the Orioles is the story of their family. It's a way for fathers and sons to talk, for mothers and daughters to connect, for grandparents to pass down traditions. Through the dark years of losing seasons, these families kept the Orioles magic alive.

Talking with Boog Powell can make you hungry. By the time the former Orioles star and current barbecue master has rhapsodized about the pleasures of, say, pit beef with horseradish sauce, homemade buttermilk biscuits and grilled asparagus with rosemary, chances are your mouth will be watering. "Oh, I love food," says the 6-foot-4 former slugger, laughing heartily. "I enjoy eating a good meal, whether it's steamed crabs, or collard greens and cornbread. … But my favorite is barbecue.

Even before they signed it, a handful of Major League Baseball owners expressed deep misgivings about a 2005 agreement negotiated by Orioles owner Peter Angelos establishing conditions under which the Montreal Expos would move and become the Washington Nationals. The owners, all members of baseball's executive council, sounded like customers having second thoughts after buying something from an aggressive salesman. They questioned whether Major League Baseball ceded too much to the Orioles for their agreement to share the club's exclusive television territory, according to the minutes of a March 28, 2005, conference call released last week as an exhibit in a court case.

Not long ago, it was suggested by more than one sportswriter that the Baltimore Orioles would never again win the American League East. Not merely because they were bad (although during the post-1997 cellar-dwelling years, they certainly were) but because the checkbook-advantaged franchises in New York and Boston had too great an advantage in the age of free agency. So that raucous celebration by players and fans alike Tuesday evening at Camden Yards after the Orioles clinched the division with an 8-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays was understandable and well-deserved.
