And there will be more baseball today. And possibly Tuesday morning. The rain has stopped, the tarp is off and the Orioles estimate a resumption of play at 11 p.m. At this point, the game is 4-2 Orioles with two outs in the bottom of the sixth. The rain delay began at 8:46 p.m. So we are looking at two hours and 14 minutes or so of a delay. That's a full NL game right there. Anyway, it ain't over yet between the Orioles and Angels.

On April 8, 1992, in the first inning of the second game at Camden Yards, Cleveland Indians first baseman Paul Sorrento hit the first home run in the history of the ballpark. It was a three-run shot hit off Orioles pitcher Bob Milacki to left-center field on a 1-2 pitch. That and other details are easily accessible in The Baltimore Sun's home runs database , which enables users to search for every longball hit in an Orioles game since Camden Yards opened 20 years ago. It includes all home runs hit at the ballpark, as well as those hit on the road during that time period.

At Camden Yards on Friday, baseballs, the scent of sizzling hot dogs and a beautiful blue sky were in the air as the Orioles played the Minnesota Twins in their home opener. The smell of cigarette smoke was not, though, as the Maryland Stadium Authority began the enforcement of a smoking ban at the Camden Yards Sports and Entertainment Complex, which includes Camden Yards and M&T Bank Stadium. Friday's game was the first since the smoking ban was put into effect. It prohibits smoking or carrying lit tobacco products - including cigarettes, cigars and pipes - within 25 feet of the stadium and the Warehouse, as well as in the outdoor space along Eutaw Street between gates A and H. Camden Yards was one of 10 Major League Baseball ballparks that had designated smoking areas within the ballpark last season, according to the American Nonsmokers' Rights Foundation.

Thursday's sellout crowd meant that every seat in Camden Yards was filled, including the worst in the ballpark. The five seats in Section 306, Row 25 - even with the foul pole in right field and level with the roof of the eight-story B&O Warehouse - are about as far from the action as you could get. But the view isn't bad - only a portion of right field was obstructed - and, most importantly, the fans still felt they were part of the game....

Five days after a brutal assault at an Orioles game at Camden Yards left a Hagerstown man hospitalized in serious condition, the issue was still percolating on local sports-talk radio Monday. As detailed vividly in a recent story in The Baltimore Sun by reporters Yvonne Wenger and Justin Fenton , the victim, 25-year old Matt Fortese, was punched in the head and sent over a railing before landing on a concrete floor five feet below. He suffered severe head trauma and a skull fracture.

Wearing the blue and orange of the visitors and not the black and orange of the home team, Dave Trembley came back to Camden Yards on Tuesday for the first time since being fired as Orioles manager in June 2010. “It's special for me to come here, to see everybody. It's special,” said Trembley, 61, in his first year as the Houston Astros third base coach. “I've seen a lot of the same people. People in the offices, clubhouse guys, the ticket-takers. I've seen all those people.

The recent article ("Beyond the Preakness," April 9) outlining the current reality of the Pimlico race track and its future highlights the need for broader and bolder thinking in order to advance a sustainable solution to make horse racing in Baltimore a thriving industry once again. As reported, the Jockey Club wants to attract better trainers and horses by investing 15 percent of projected earnings to renovate the stables. Yet this approach will do little to improve the fan experience.

The Baltimore Orioles just completed the last leg of their road trip, having played three games against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field ( "Kevin Gausman shuts down Rays, Nelson Cruz homers in Orioles' 2-0 victory," June 18). Both Baltimore TV and radio had nothing positive to say about Tropicana Field, the Rays' home turf in Tampa/St. Petersburg. Radio broadcaster and former Os pitcher Ben McDonald even called it "gloomy. " Can you imagine anyone ever calling Oriole Park gloomy?

I'm currently on the Amtrak heading home from New York. I've slept in my own bed for just two nights since Feb. 10, so heading back to Baltimore for the Orioles' nine-game homestand will be a welcome change. The Orioles played nine of their first 12 games on the road, opening the season in Tampa Bay before this week's road trip to Boston and New York. So they've only been home for three games since the beginning of spring training. During the opening two weeks of the season, the Orioles have also played games at five different start times and played in three Opening Day games, which has prevented them from setting up any sense of routine after a spring training full of early afternoon games.
