Even though his major league career is just four games old -- and he began this past week playing at Double-A Bowie -- Orioles rookie third baseman Manny Machado has been named American League co-Player of the Week. Machado will share the honor with Red Sox first baseman Adrian Gonzalez. Called up before Thursday's game against the Royals, the 20-year-old Machado went 6-for-16 with three homers, one triple, one double, five runs and seven RBIs over four games. On Friday, he became the 12th player in major league history to record a two-homer game before his 21st birthday.

The solitary orange banner waved over the left field wall at old Memorial Stadium for years. “HERE” is all it said in blocky black lettering. No other words were necessary. Everyone knew what it meant: here's where Frank hit it out. Wednesday marks the 47th anniversary of that historic home run, when Orioles outfielder and future Hall of Famer Frank Robinson became the only player to hit a baseball completely out of the old ballpark on 33rd Street during a game. It happened on May 8, 1966, in the second game of a doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians, when Robinson hit a mammoth two-run shot off Indians starter Luis Tiant in the first inning.

Jim Palmer and Mike Cuellar worked four near-flawless innings, and Brooks Robinson had a single and a magical play on Johnny Bench. Earl Weaver piloted the squad, Billy Hunter was third-base coach, and outfielder Don Buford was making his All-Star debut.

Boog" Powell may be standing next to a ballpark barbecue trolley piled with his signature smoky, fragrant barbecued beef and pork, but here is what he's hungry for: leg of lamb.Boned, marinated, grilled leg of lamb, to be exact. "You take a little olive oil, garlic, rosemary and oregano," he says, "and you marinate it for about three hours -- just let it sit out on the counter. If you've got a lemon hanging around, you can throw that in there."You can have the butcher debone the lamb, says the big former Orioles first baseman -- though, he notes, "I like to do it myself" -- "and you treat it just like a steak.

Earlier this year, his son wrangled tickets so he could take his father on his first -- and possibly last -- trip to Camden Yards to see the Birds play.The tickets were for Sept. 12, the day major league ballplayers went out on strike. For the Kellys, the strike had stolen a son's gift to his father.

ORIOLE FANS sense their team making a run for the pennant and, maybe, its first 100-win season in nearly a generation. There's also -- cross your fingers -- a possible trip to the World Series.A winning professional sports team contending for a championship makes a community feel good about itself. You could call it a Fountain of Youth with peanut vendors.This is one reason cities bend over backward to erect new stadiums and accommodate professional sports franchises. The ties that bind communities are looser now, but fanaticism for a sports team remains a potent source of shared emotions.
