Any chance former Orioles left-hander Dave McNally gets to return to Baltimore, he takes. When that opportunity means he can make a little money for local charities and honor his friend and former teammate Brooks Robinson at the same time, he jumps at it."Brooks never gets enough honors," said McNally, from his auto dealership in Billings, Mont. "He deserves more, because of the kind of person he is and what he has meant to the game."McNally is one of 15 baseball celebrities who will be in town tomorrow for the Kodak Celebration of Baseball, which will honor Robinson on Saturday night at the Advanced Telecomm Black Tie Dinner, Dance and Auction at the Marriott Inner Harbor Hotel.

Maddux dominant Kevin Cowherd Baltimore Sun OK, are we including cheaters? Or, ahem, alleged cheaters? If so, it's hard not to go with Mr. Steroid Scandal himself, Roger Clemens, with his 354 career wins, 3.12 ERA and 7 Cy Young Awards. But if we give him the heave-ho — let's do — my vote goes to Greg Maddux. Let the stat geeks howl about Cy Young's 511 wins or Walter Johnson's 417 — fans were still pulling up to the ballpark in buckboard carriages when those two pitched.

Nothing charges a ballpark like the possibility of a no-hitter. When a pitcher gets into the sixth inning with that 0 under the H on the scoreboard, everything changes. Players crowd to one side of the bench, leaving the starter to his thoughts. Patrons no longer leave their seats for between-innings beers. Beat writers fret, trying to imagine words that will be as memorable as the game they're describing. I can only imagine how Detroit fans must have felt Tuesday night. Not only did Justin Verlander become the first Tiger since Jack Morris to pitch a no-hitter, but he also seemed to announce his arrival as a future great by striking out 12 with 101-mph fastballs and impossibly bending curves.

It was a little squib of a note in the paper that always seems to catch the reader's eye: More than half the kids in the United States have their own televisions.Hmmm, time was when half the households in the United States didn't have a TV, not even 20 percent, and it wasn't that long ago, either.About two minutes later and on the next page, there was this under the "This Date in Baseball" feature: "1950 -- The All-Star Game returned to Comiskey Park, the site of the first game, and was won by the National League, 4-3, on Red Schoendienst's 14th-inning home run off Ted Gray.
