The training camps are open, marked by their isolation and sweltering heat. Grown men sweat and grunt, straining against the weather and each other.The distinctive sounds of bodies colliding and shoulder pads cracking permeate the air.And Brian Jordan is beginning to get that old itch, the one that guides him into the National Football League.His hitting is currently confined to the baseball diamond, where his career has taken a sharp upswing -- to the point where St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Jorgensen says that the Baltimore native has "proven he can play with the best" in the National League.

ST. LOUIS -- His wife talks about his competitiveness; about how he hates to lose at anything, be it a game in the National League Championship Series or a game of backyard hoops.His manager and general manager tell of his fearlessness and, at times, his recklessness. They talk of how he takes a football player's approach to baseball, like the time he ran into a brick wall -- literally.And his teammates marvel at his work ethic, about the disappointments that pushed him even harder, about the injuries he has played through and his slow, steady rise from part-time player to blossoming star.

LOS ANGELES -- It is the same in every city. The focus always seems to be on slugger Mark McGwire, who has grown so much bigger than life that his shadow covers everyone else in the St. Louis Cardinals' lineup.Outfielder Brian Jordan watches in awe like everybody else and doesn't seem to mind that McGwiremania is costing him valuable air time in this, the year he aspires to become a superstar.Does anyone even realize that the pride of Milford Mill High entered yesterday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks ranked fourth in the National League with a .343 batting average -- just 14 points off the league lead?

Kane Jr. for dismissal of the state's case against Jordan based on the lack of a speedy trial and prosecutorial misconduct.

The Orioles on Thursday hired a baseball lifer – a man with small-town roots, a work ethic forged by his father, and an unshakeable conviction in the fundamentals of the game, born of long heart-to-heart talks with his old man. The description fits Cal Ripken Jr. The job goes to Buck Showalter. A two-time Manager of the Year, with the New York Yankees and Texas Rangers, Showalter is the best man to lead the worst team in baseball, those who know him say. "It's a real good fit," said John Hart, onetime Orioles' coach who hired Showalter at Texas in 2003 when he was general manager.

Just when it looked like injuries and advancing age might finally knock the Atlanta Braves off their National League East perch, they're back with a vengeance. And they have brought reinforcements. The Braves now have the second-best record in the National League (behind the St. Louis Cardinals) and are beginning to run away with their 14th consecutive division title. They are doing it with an outfield of relative no-names and Most Valuable Player candidate Andruw Jones. One of those obscure players, though, may soon become a familiar face.

For being a hometown product, Brian Jordan never seems to pass up a chance to aggravate the Orioles. Sometimes it's subtle, sometimes it's in full view of 38,569 fans. He could have signed with them four years ago, providing a nice local touch to their winter dealings, but instead chose the Atlanta Braves and closer proximity to his Alpharetta, Ga., residence. The Orioles countered by signing Albert Belle, a move that backfired with such force, the franchise still is covered in soot. After shaking hands yesterday with players on the high school all-star teams that once showcased his amateur talents, Jordan rattled the Orioles by driving in both runs against them in the Los Angeles Dodgers' 2-1 victory at Camden Yards.
