The Bowie Baysox announced yesterday that former Orioles outfielder Al Bumbry will join manager Pete Mackanin's coaching staff for the 1994 season.Bumbry, who recently was released from the major-league coaching staff of the Boston Red Sox, was considered a candidate for the Orioles major-league staff, but that opening went to Don Buford.The Orioles might have chosen Bumbry if first-base coach Davey Lopes had left for a managerial position, but apparently felt there would be some redundancy with both Lopes and Bumbry on the staff.

Standing on the field at Camden Yards on Monday afternoon, Orioles top offensive prospect Manny Machado said he hoped to be here again in two years wearing a big league uniform. "It's great to see what these guys are going through right now, and, hopefully within the next two years, I'll be up here and do the same thing they are doing," said the 19-year-old shortstop, who was taken third overall in the 2010 amateur draft. High-A Frederick had the day off, so Machado and his roommate, Keys outfielder Steven Bumbry , drove to Camden Yards to watch batting practice, take in a game and conduct a pre-game interview with the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network.

In December 1985, The Sun reported, "Bumbry will rejoin Orioles organization."There are worse blunders.We were nine years early.The Orioles are nine years late.Actually, Al Bumbry rejoined the organization last season as a minor-league instructor. But only yesterday did he get the job he should have had long ago -- on the major-league staff.Bumbry, 47, will be the Orioles' first base coach next season, finally.Indeed, it was no small embarrassment when he made the Orioles Hall of Fame in 1987 while working for the -- gulp -- Boston Red Sox.Bumbry spent eight years with Boston, eight years helping a division rival when he should have been working for his former team.

When he hit a home run against Hudson Valley in his second plate appearance, Aberdeen IronBirds center fielder Steve Bumbry appeared to be adapting quickly to professional baseball. "Up there, I actually felt really relaxed and comfortable at the plate," Bumbry said. "I tried to see a good pitch. ... Luckily, he got one down in the zone and I put a good swing on it." The 5-foot-11, 185-pound outfielder soon found out, however, that the road from short-season Single-A to the major leagues would also include some setbacks.

Few images of the late-'70s Orioles are more enduring than those involving center fielder Al Bumbry. Short in height, but long on charisma, Bumbry was embodied in care-free moments by a broad smile, in moments of concentration by his piston-like gum-chewing.He was everyman's ballplayer. He won a Rookie of the Year award. He hustled out grounders and ran into walls. He hit a respectable .281 for his career and still holds the club's stolen-base record (252).Along the way, he became a local hero.

Dulaney has been struggling at the plate recently, so it took some additional batting practice this week and got some tips from a "friend of the program" who knows how to play the game. The Lions took extra swings at the school and then added another workout at the house of former Oriole Al Bumbry, whose son Steve played at Dulaney. Bumbry remains helpful to the players, and they are glad to take any tips he wants to provide. The extra practice paid off as Dulaney beat Perry Hall, 12-2, in a key Baltimore County matchup yesterday.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Think fast: Who was the last home-grown speedster to play regularly for the Orioles?You win the prize if you say Al Bumbry, who broke into the majors more than two decades ago. The Orioles drafted and developed Steve Finley, before trading him and two others for Glenn Davis. They thought they had a future star in Curtis Goodwin, but he faded and is now with the Cincinnati Reds.But there is hope in the person of Eugene Kingsale, a 6-foot-3 center fielder with long legs.

Ty Wigginton had his best game of the season Sunday, blasting two homers for the first time in 2009. On Tuesday, the Orioles' first game since their Sunday blowout victory over the Atlanta Braves, Wigginton found himself out of the lineup again. Such is life for a reserve player, a concept Wigginton is still getting used to. "This is all new for me. I've always been the guy who not only played more than one position but as long as I was healthy I played every day," Wigginton said. "So adjusting is pretty much the hardest part."

The Orioles selected 27 more players on the second day of the annual amateur draft Wednesday, and one name should sound familiar. In the 12th round, the Orioles chose Virginia Tech outfielder Steve Bumbry, the son of Orioles Hall of Fame center fielder Al Bumbry. "I am very excited, more excited for him," said Al Bumbry, who played for the Orioles from 1972 to 1984. "It's something [Steve] has wanted to do since he was a junior at Dulaney. He told me: 'I don't want to play football this year.

They came back, almost all of them, and it was easy to see why they were so good for so long. The 23 members of the 1983 World Series championship team who assembled at Oriole Park yesterday still had that certain something - call it chemistry, camaraderie, whatever - that bonded them together and allowed them to scale baseball's highest peak a quarter century ago. It wasn't nostalgia, though there was plenty of that in the air as Eddie Murray and...

Will Thomas (Mount St. Joseph) has never regretted his decision to pass up the prestige of the Atlantic Coast Conference and Big East to stay close to his Baltimore home at George Mason. He and the Patriots received their share of national acclaim by making a trip to the Final Four two seasons ago. Mid-majors were the talk of the tournament, and Thomas was basking in the glow of four straight NCAA tournament wins. "I had a good tournament, everybody was talking about our team, and I was suddenly being considered a bright player for the future," said the 6-foot-7, 230-pound senior who leads the team in scoring at 16.2 points a game and rebounding at 10.5 a game.

How much healing can take place in four days, partic ularly when the wound has been cut so deep into the vein of a com munity? And how can a mere game, even one as wonderful as baseball, be a salve for people whose pain is still so close to the surface? For now, only heaven has those answers. For all Steve Bumbry knows, there just might not have been enough time between the horrific killings on the Virginia Tech campus Monday and to night's game against Miami to put things into some semblance of reason.

The firings of four major-league managers the last four days will further delay the Orioles' hiring of three new coaches, manager John Oates said last night.Oates said he received at least 10 phone calls from prospective coaches before getting rehired Monday, and that number will only increase as teams change coaches as well as managers."It's kind of hard to comprehend how much is going on right now," Oates said from his home in Richmond, Va."Every day more people are becoming available. There's no timetable to when the staff will be completed because of all that's going on."

Orioles fans looking for a glimpse of the glory days can make a short trip up Interstate 83 this summer and take a peek into the home dugout of the independent York (Pa.) Revolution. The newly formed Atlantic League team announced the coaching staff for its inaugural 2007 season, and it will feature three members of the Orioles' Hall of Fame as well as the answer to a historic trivia question. Former catcher Chris Hoiles, who played his entire 10-year big league career with the Orioles and was inducted last summer into the club's Hall of Fame, will be the first manager of the Revolution.
