His manager, Earl Weaver , called him "the best leadoff man in the game," and who's to argue? In five years with the Orioles, Don Buford batted .270, ran the bases with ferocity and helped the club reach three World Series. It's no coincidence that, one year after Buford crashed the lineup, the Orioles won 101 games and the first of three straight American League pennants (1969-1971). Twice, he hit .300 or better in the postseason. In 1969, Buford made history as the first player ever to lead off a World Series with a home run, connecting off the New York Mets' Tom Seaver.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Johnny Oates apparently wants to keep outfielder Damon Buford, and he just might get his wish. But if Buford makes the Orioles, Oates must find a way to use him, or the front office will insist that he return to Triple-A Rochester to play every day.Buford, 23, is caught in the middle of an age-old baseball conflict between a manager trying to win this season and a front office planning for the future. The best thing for him probably is to return to Triple-A. But Buford disputes that notion, as does Oates and Buford's father, Don, a member of the Orioles' coaching staff.

Bowie Community Theatre has struck comic gold this month with playwright Del Shores' in 'Daddy's Dyin' Who's Got the Will?" The play was Shores' first hit play, premiering in 1987. In this edition, BCT President John Nunemaker directs with assurance and affection for this family of misfits - in some ways repeating Bowie's earlier triumph with "Sordid Lives," another warm-hearted dark comedy that enlivened the company's 2011-2012 season. "Daddy's Dyin'" takes place in 1986, in the small Texas town of Lowake, where four siblings gather at the family farm after learning of the dire condition of their father, Buford, who has suffered a stroke after already suffering from advanced dementia.

A day after a three-alarm fire destroyed her Annapolis home and most of her belongings, Odessa Buford's children sifted through what was left of her belongings. Besides fragments of charred and soaked photos, there was not much. But less than three weeks after a fast-spreading fire at the Admiral Farragut Apartments injured two residents and displaced 40, she has hope of getting back on her feet. Now living temporarily with her son in Etters, Pa., Buford said her church donated items, she is being sent a bunch of gift cards and is in line to get another unit in the complex in January.

Brig. Gen. James Jay Archer of Harford County descended from a long line of distinguished Marylanders, and at the Battle of Gettysburg he earned his unfortunate place in history. Archer was a graduate of Princeton, a lawyer and veteran of the Mexican War. And in the opening hours of the fight July 1, 1863, he became the first Confederate general under the command of Gen. Robert E. Lee to be captured by Union forces. As dawn broke that morning, Archer could not have known that he would soon be in the hands of the enemy.

TORONTO -- If anybody told you Mark McLemore would be leading the team in RBI and Damon Buford would be the regular center fielder on Mother's Day, you'd expect that the Orioles would be in a tough situation.And you'd be right. However, McLemore and Buford are two of the few blameless for the Orioles' 11-17 start. Yesterday was a perfect example as the two combined to drive in five runs and score three times in a 6-3 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays.McLemore drove in three runs with a triple and single, and now leads the club with 14 RBI, one more than Cal Ripken and Brady Anderson.
