Baseball is in Palumbo's blood. That's why in 2012 when he got an offer he couldn't refuse, he didn't. Palumbo interviewed for and accepted the position of head baseball coach at Archbishop Spalding, and took over from the outgoing coach - his dad, Jeff. "I knew this was a great situation and a great place for me to be," said Palumbo, a graduate of DeMatha and Maryland, both of which he played baseball for. "Coaching is something I really wanted to do, and this was where I wanted to be. " In his first year, the team went 13-15.

After 14 years as Dunbar's baseball coach, Don Gilbert has decided to take a break. "I have decided to leave now and watch my son, who is a rising senior baseball college prospect player at Glen Burnie High School," Gilbert said.

When Mount St. Joseph baseball coach Dave Norton finally got the chance to see Steve Clevenger play in a major league uniform, he was given a reminder of the kind of player he coached years before. Clevenger -- a 2004 graduate of Mount St. Joseph who raised in Glen Burnie and now returning home after being acquired by the Orioles in Tuesday's trade with the Chicago Cubs -- was behind the plate at Nationals Park on Sept. 12 when his pitcher nearly struck Bryce Harper in the hip. Norton watched from the stands as Clevenger went out of his stance to step in front of an upset Harper, who was walking toward the mound with a scowl.

Ken Dunn South River If you are, in fact, only as good as your last game, then South River baseball coach Ken Dunn is in great shape. Dunn announced earlier this season that, after 35 years coaching, this would be his last at South River -- and his team responded. The No. 2 Seahawks (20-5) won the tough Class 4A East region -- beating No. 4 North County, 5-2, in the regional championship game -- and then gave up three total hits in two state playoff games to win the school's first state title in baseball.

Norris began his job in the fall by working on the playing field - shoveling in dirt, rebuilding the mound and watering the infield every day as if he knew it would bloom in the spring. When the season came, the first-year coach delivered a familiar message to his team: Baseball is simple - don't complicate it. "He was committed to the program from the day he got the job," Curley athletic director Bill Dawson said. "Every day he'd show up and work on the field. I really think because he was an alumnus and had been on several championship teams here [baseball and ice hockey]

Mike Gottlieb feels like the Death Row inmate who gets a last-minute reprieve from the governor. Only in this case, the governor came up with $300,000 out of the state budget to keep Gottlieb's Towson University baseball team alive for a couple more years. So there was Gottlieb on Wednesday afternoon at Towson's Schuerholz Park, standing in the bright sunshine and biting wind before the Tigers' 5-3 loss to Navy, marveling at what a close call it had been for his team. "I remember growing up in the 60's," he was saying now, "and there was a Superman episode where they found out a guy who was on Death Row was innocent.

Lauren Williams and her father unbox the treasure: a three-wheeled cycle, powered by the arms. Larry Williams adjusts the footrests and affixes Lauren's feet with Velcro straps. Lauren, 26, narrows her eyes in determination, pushes one pedal with her right hand, the other with her left, and rolls away at a good clip. Her father, a baseball coach, watches her go. "If I had a team full of players like her, I could own the world," he says. For other young adults, a new bicycle might mean an opportunity to shed pounds, travel sustainably or just get out in the elements more often.

Matt Tilley hasn't had much free time outside of practice this year. In fact, Gilman baseball coach Larry Sheets said the senior has taken just two days off since August -- both between the football and basketball seasons and none between the basketball and baseball seasons. Such is the life of a three-sport athlete. And he hasn't just participated in football, basketball and baseball -- he has excelled in all three. He played wide receiver and free safety for the Gilman football team that won the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference last fall, served as captain for the basketball team that was one win away from winning its second consecutive MIAA B Conference title in the winter and stars all over the field for the No. 10 Greyhounds in baseball.
