It is unbelievably sad that Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher killed his girlfriend and then himself ("The tragedy of Jovan Belcher," Dec. 4). The couple had a 3-month-old baby, and it's heart-wrenching when something like this happens. It brings me to tears every time I think of it because it didn't have to end this way. Severe mental illness does not have to end in suicide and murder for the victims and pain for those left behind. Sadly, men are more likely to use lethal weapons like guns when they attempt suicide.

The Cincinnati Reds traded outfielder Eric Davis to the Los Angeles Dodgers last night as part of a four-player deal that sent right-hander Tim Belcher to the Reds.Cincinnati also got reliever John Wetteland and sent reliever Kip Gross to the Dodgers.Davis, 29, played in only 89 games last season, hitting .235 with 11 home runs and 33 RBI.He has been hampered by injuries throughout his career. He fell out of favor with Reds manager Lou Piniella when he decided to sit out most of the second half of the season because of what Davis called chronic fatigue resulting from his kidney injury in the 1990 World Series.

This year's spring training was not the best Tim Belcher ever experienced.He got a late start attending to personal business, strained a quadriceps muscle 10 days after reporting and didn't accumulate the number of innings he usually needs to prepare for the season.Amid all that, the New York Yankees tagged him for 13 runs in 2 2/3 innings of one start, forcing his ERA to 11.66 for the spring.But when the season opened yesterday at Oriole Park, the veteran right-hander came out pitching zeros in place of Kansas City's No. 1 starter, Kevin Appier, who underwent surgery on his right shoulder a week earlier.

On an Opening Day that could have used a splash of color, the Orioles' offensive slate mostly had the look of a blank canvas.Consecutive two-out doubles by Joe Carter and Chris Hoiles in the eighth inning were as close as the Orioles came to an uprising during a 4-1 loss to the Kansas City Royals at Camden Yards. Otherwise, they went down routinely, taking the air out of a sellout crowd eager to make noise.One run and five hits. Is this any way to usher in the Ray Miller era?It's not as if nobody saw it coming, though, even with the Royals turning to journeyman Tim Belcher as a replacement for injured ace Kevin Appier.

Kansas City Royals closer Jeff Montgomery threw a low fastball and Orioles left fielder Mark Smith swung and, through his hands, he felt contact. Imperfect contact.Smith knew he hit a high fly, and that he missed a chance to drive a very hittable pitch and break a 3-3 tie in the bottom of the ninth. He dropped his head and flipped his bat away and headed toward first, in a half-hearted run. On the bench, some of Smith's teammates sat passively. They knew it was an out. Royals center fielder Johnny Damon tracked the ball, drifting back.

When Carroll Christian boys basketball coach Randy Peterson learned he had a new player coming in at the start of last season, he jokingly asked for a frontcourt player around 6-foot-6.Instead, he got a 5-10 point guard named Josh Belcher.After one full season, which included the Patriots first-ever Maryland Association of Christian Schools state title, and a 6-0 start this year, Peterson wouldn't have it any other way.Belcher, who came to the Patriots from Ridgewood Baptist in Joliet, Ill., has been a perfect fit in a system that relies on pressure defense and transition.

When I heard about the deadly incident of domestic violence involving the Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, my first thought was what a tragedy ("Kansas City Chiefs player Jovan Belcher kills girlfriend, himself," Dec. 1). That thought quickly led me to wonder if the NFL would now start talking about domestic violence. But it doesn't look good so far. On ESPN's NFL "Sunday Countdown," all the talk was about remembering what a great guy and player Belcher was. Only Tom Jackson made the point that he was more concerned about the girlfriend and the child left behind than about Belcher, who was a murderer.

Your editorial on the apparent murder-suicide Involving Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher and his girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, noted approvingly sportscaster Bob Costas' opinion that "if Jovan Belcher didn't possess a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today" ("The tragedy of Jovan Belcher," Dec. 4). Yet consider some other gun-related homicide news: A 41-year-old Dutch man working as a linesman at a youth soccer game, was shot to death by a group of teenage players.

The weekend murder-suicide involving Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher and his 22-year-old girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, is a grim reminder of the toll in lives domestic violence takes, how common such tragedies are even among highly successful people who otherwise would seem to have everything to live for - and how easily a dispute can turn lethal when a handgun is within reach. Mr. Belcher, 25 and a rising star on the Kansas City team who recently became a million-dollar player, shot and killed Ms. Perkins, with whom he had a 3-month-old daughter, on Saturday morning at their Kansas City home.

The news that Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher had died in a murder-suicide hit Ravens defensive lineman Arthur Jones particularly hard. Belcher was a childhood friend and former wrestling teammate of Jones, who grew up in upstate New York. Highly upset about the tragedy, Jones sent the following text to The Baltimore Sun regarding his memories of Belcher. "We wrestled every year on the same New York state team together since middle school through high school," Jones wrote.

A retired Episcopal priest, whose last assignment was as the vicar at a church in northern Harford County, pleaded guilty last week to sexually abusing two young girls in Cecil County. The Rev. Donald W. Belcher, 82, entered an Alford plea on two counts of sexual abuse of minors in Cecil County Circuit Court. An Alford plea allows a defendant to maintain his innocence while acknowledging that the state has enough evidence to convict him. Belcher was released on $100,000 bond and is awaiting a June 28 sentencing, in which he could receive 25 years on each count, to be served consecutively, said Kevin Urick, assistant state's attorney for Cecil County.
