It was Opening Day in Harford County Saturday, including in Fountain Green, Havre de Grace and Hickory where the immortal words "Play Ball" were followed by the sounds of kids playing baseball and softball. The weather was near perfect as wisps of clouds added depth to the blue sky.

Maybe it's that I'm getting older (we're all getting older, I know that), but the high school baseball and softball seasons really breezed by this year. In another few weeks, there won't be any high school sports until the fall, and I'll have but one team to worry about, the IronBirds. Thinking about the Aberdeen men turning in a campaign like last year's is enough to make any journalist blue (try interviewing a manager and players who just lost their 12th straight game), so I'm going to focus on the positive, the upcoming MPSSAA regional tournaments.

It was pushing 90 degrees and the second game of a big series against the New York Yankees was just a few hours away, but an important chunk of the Orioles roster was sweating in the noonday sun on a humble ballfield at Radecke Park. Adam Jones and Manny Machado put a hundred or so kids through a double play drill on one of the infields. Former Orioles Al Bumbry and Bill Swaggerty worked with another group nearby. Shortstop J.J. Hardy and fiance Adrienne Acton were across the street with Jones' girlfriend Audie Fugett giving hitting tips to a large group of teenage softball players.

I had such a good time with last week's by-the-numbers baseball and softball breakdown that I'm going to throw another one out there. We have had more than enough interesting results come through since last Friday, so here is some food for thought. Keep in mind, these numbers take into account only UCBAC baseball and softball teams, and only those games played through Wednesday. Zero: The number of UCBAC baseball and softball teams with perfect overall records. This went from one to none on Monday afternoon, when the North Harford softball team shocked the previously unbeaten Rising Sun squad, 4-0. I honestly thought the Tigers had a shot at going without a loss, considering how they were mowing through the Chesapeake Division, but the Hawks were having none of it. Consider this: last Friday the Hawks beat C. Milton Wright, 11-6, then topped Rising by shutout three days later.

Another swing for softball Philip Hersh Chicago Tribune First of all, wrestling should not be replaced on the Summer Olympic program, in 2020 or ever. But if the International OlympicCommittee keeps its head buried firmly in the sand (or elsewhere), I am conflicted about a replacement because baseball and softball have made themselves a single entity in a bid for readmission. Softball belongs; baseball does not because the sport's top prize is not Olympic gold but the World Series, and getting its top players to compete during the major league season remains a problem.

The baseball and softball UCBAC division races have all been settled, and I must say that they were some of the tightest, most hotly contested I have witnessed during my time at The Aegis. Baseball in the Chesapeake Division came down to one head-to-head matchup, as did Susquehanna Division softball, and though the Susquehanna Division baseball was not decided on a single ball field (Rising Sun clinched with a win over Perryville on Wednesday, at the same time second-place Harford Tech was beating Havre de Grace)
