CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- For most of their first-ever NCAA super regional, Maryland has fought off rallies by Virginia that, with every base runner, became more and more likely to produce a big inning. The Terps survived in Game 1 on Saturday, but they couldn't overcome Virginia's 17-hit barrage or the three-run seventh inning that broke open the Cavaliers' 7-3 win Sunday at a sold-out Davenport Field. “Good teams like Virginia will take those kind of base hits and turn them into good things,” Maryland coach John Szefc said.

Once upon a time, baseball teams chose their uniform colors without hiring design consultants.The Detroit Tigers got a good deal on blue and orange socks, so they wear blue and orange. The Baltimore Orioles wear orange and black, to match the plumage of the bird.Nowadays, however, there's big money to be made in selling caps and jerseys and jackets to fans. If baseball's predictions are right, the National League's two new expansion teams, Denver and Miami, will sell so much merchandise in the next year, the revenue would pay their fees for admission to the league -- before they ever field teams.

Any resemblance would be hard for all but the most die-hard Orioles fans to notice. But it's there. The new Aberdeen IronBirds logo, unveiled Monday, was inspired by a furious, bat-wielding Orioles bird mascot introduced after the 1967 season. Billy Ripken, who turned 3 years old that year, remembered it well when he began thinking about refreshing the IronBirds logo. "He was mean-looking," Ripken said. "He had a bat in his hand and a had a little lean forward. " That bird's menacing look combined with inspiration from the recent Iron Man movies - since Ripken and his brother Cal, baseball's ironman, run the team together - form a slick new character that the duo hopes will continue to draw young baseball fans to games.

I don't really know baseball. I never even went to a professional game before coming to Baltimore. So when asked if I would like to spend seven straight days eating, breathing, sleeping and sweating baseball, my answer was a definite, hesitant ... yes? Now, 1,500 miles, seven stadiums (counting Camden Yards), 3,222 still images and a half-eaten deep-fried Twinkie later, we have ourselves a weeklong minor league baseball series in the paper. I am proud, if exhausted. My chief concern, aside from juggling a new video camera I had little idea how to use, was making sure I got enough distinctive photos from the various stadiums, so you, our faithful reader, wouldn't think that each day of the series was Groundhog Day. That didn't turn out to be as much of an issue as I feared.

The Terps baseball team came up one game short in its bid to win an Atlantic Coast Conference tournament championship before departing for the Big Ten Conference. Maryland, which made it to the ACC tournament final for the first time since 1976, gave up six runs to Georgia Tech in the final three innings -- including three runs in the eighth -- in an 9-4 loss at NewBridge Bank Park in Greensboro, N.C. After beating Virginia and Florida State in the first two games of the tournament, the Terps lost to North Carolina on Saturday and the Yellow Jackets on Sunday.

It took 51 years for Dan Murray to receive his golden jacket for winning the 1963 baseball championship with Calvert Hall, and he knows what he'll do with it now. "Probably encase it," Murray, 69, said with a chuckle. Murray, the starting pitcher in that championship game, said budget constraints or a simple oversight prevented the Cardinals receiving their jackets that season. It is a tradition at Calvert Hall for every member of a varsity championship team to receive a gold jacket.

The St. Vincent Pallotti Baseball Team would like to thank all of the Laurel-area residents who so generously supported our first annual fall leaf raking fundraiser. The response was overwhelming and gratifying. The team raked over 70 homes and earned over $5,000 in donations. We very much regret having to turn down a number of requests as we were simply unable to meet the demand. Bob Seyko Laurel

Towson University president Maravene Loeschke's defense of cutting the men's soccer and baseball teams was less than honest ("Towson president says cutbacks of baseball, soccer painful but necessary," March 15). Not once did she mention football, a major expense for a university and the real reason for cutting other men's sports. Instead she did a great disservice to her gender by using the smoke screen of Title IX as a factor. Just to mention equality for women's sports implicates Title IX, but she is talking about pennies and this is wrong.

When the New York Yankees visit Baltimore each year, the stakes always seem to be a bit higher for the crowds at Camden Yards. With the success of the Orioles last season and through the first half of 2013, as much is true again this season. And the national audience has noticed. Saturday night's game is being televised regionally by Fox, and Sunday night's series finale will be the first time ESPN's "Sunday Night Baseball" is in Baltimore since July 31, 2005. In that game, the Orioles fell to the Chicago White Sox, 9-4. Right-hander Rodrigo Lopez took the loss, and current Triple-A Norfolk right-hander Freddy Garcia earned the win. Shortstop Miguel Tejada and left fielder Eric Byrnes each had three hits, and second baseman Brian Roberts homered for the Orioles.
