Josh Hader was about 5 when he joined his Anne Arundel County youth baseball team on the field at Camden Yards in a pregame ceremony. A youth league standout, Hader went on to become a star pitcher at Old Mill High in Millersville and couldn't believe his good fortune when he was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles after his senior year. He made his minor league debut in 2012 in the Gulf Coast League and with Aberdeen and began the 2013 season as the No. 13 prospect in the Baltimore farm system, according to Baseball America.

BOWIE -- On the field, things can only improve. Off the field, the improvements are mainly cosmetic.That is the outlook for the Double-A Bowie Baysox, who enter their third full season at Prince George's Stadium with a roster buttressed by legitimate prospects and a home park that has become a minor-league showplace.Last summer was a drag for the Baysox, who suffered from a shortage of quality pitching and team speed and stumbled to a 54-88 record, by far the worst in their four-year Eastern League history.

Without overpowering stuff, Rick Bauer must make his living by thinking positively and keeping his emotions under control. He has done both well this season.Despite a lofty ERA, Bauer has pitched longer and more successfully than any other starter on a no-name Frederick staff that helped keep the Keys in Single-A Carolina League playoff contention until the final week. He is the team's biggest winner and most used pitcher."I have to work down in the zone, get ahead and think more," Bauer said.

The weather is warming up, and so is Mike Berry's hitting.In a six-game span culminated by last Sunday's three-home run outbreak in Portland, Maine, the third baseman hit six homers, showing the prowess that made him the Single-A California League's leading hitter last summer at High Desert.He is the first player for the Double-A Bowie Baysox to have a three-homer game, and his 14 total bases were also a team record."It's a little tougher to hit in the Eastern League," said Berry, brother of Houston third baseman Sean.

Lake Elsinore, California -- This is the kind of town you see only if you need gas -- or, lately, a ballgame.I wanted both last Tuesday night, which is why I was at the Diamond, the new 6,000-seat stadium of the new Lake Elsinore Storm of the Class A California League. Four thousand other people were there, too, on a cool, windy night, the kind Californians think of as stay-at-home weather.Tickets go from $2 -- for children who like to sit and play on the grass hill built along the right-field foul line -- to $5 for a box seat.

With an extremely young roster, the Single-A Frederick Keys were expected to struggle early in the Carolina League season. But it has been worse than anticipated.The Keys entered this week with a 12-24 record -- by far the poorest in the league -- and ranked last in pitching, last in home runs and next-to-last in batting average.They had won only seven times when someone other than ace Rocky Coppinger (5-1) started.Despite some recent additions from the Double-A Bowie Baysox, including closer Chris Lemp and outfielders Sean Hugo and Clayton Byrne, Frederick still has stalled.

After slogging around in the Single-A Carolina League cellar for most of the season, the Frederick Keys are gathering momentum.There actually is some playoff talk around the Keys, who have been last in the league almost all summer in the standings, team hitting and team pitching.Despite a 3-2, 15-inning loss to Salem on Monday night, Frederick had won seven of 11 games and was tied for second place in the second half of Northern Division play, seven behind the Wilmington Blue Rocks.And the Keys still have eight games left against the Blue Rocks.
