In fact, she and Bruce had worked together on several enterprises since their days at Morgan State University, when they started selling sandwiches and chicken boxes to fellow students in the dorms.

Roughly four hours before Tuesday's first pitch at Camden Yards, Orioles manager Buck Showalter held a meeting with his players and staff to ensure them that proper safety precautions were being made in light of Monday's Boston Marathon bombing that killed three and injured at least 170.

Showalter said plenty of behind-the-scenes things have happened in the last year or so to guarantee the safety of all those at the park - and the players may not have been aware of some of the improvements.
