K.J. Hockaday, the former John Carroll infielder who set the career MIAA record for home runs with 31, has opted to play for the University of Maryland instead of sign with the Orioles. The O's drafted Hockaday in the 14th round of the MLB draft in June, but the two parties were not able to come to an agreement. "It wasn't that close at all," Hockaday said of the offer the Orioles made. He declined to divulge specifics concerning the offer. This summer, the 18-year-old is playing on Youse's Maryland Orioles, a collegiate summer team based in Linthicum, Md. The team is currently competing in the long-running AAABA Baseball Tournament, a tournament that has featured a host of future professionals over the years, including Hall-of-Famers Al Kaline and Reggie Jackson.

NEW YORK - -Before his major league debut last week, Orioles outfielder Nolan Reimold talked with teammate Lou Montanez about the possibility of hitting a home run in his first major league at-bat, a feat Montanez accomplished last season against the Los Angeles Angels. Reimold was unable to do that, but his first major league homer proved significant nonetheless. When Reimold sent Mariano Rivera's cut fastball over the center field wall and off the netting that protects Monument Park in the ninth inning of the Orioles' 11-4 loss Wednesday, he became the first player to hit his first career home run off Rivera during his distinguished career.

Mark Fainaru-Wada and Lance Williams could not have timed it better. Game of Shadows, their damning account of steroid use in Major League Baseball, hit bookstores just days before the start of the season. The book is an investigative tour de force of how steroid use has become accepted as standard practice by an increasing number of high-profile athletes, allegedly including Barry Bonds of the San Francisco Giants, who stands poised to pass Babe Ruth for second place on the all-time home run list.

It was a momentous weekend in Denver for Barry Bonds. He hit his first home run of the season. And he encountered his first road crowd that wasn't obnoxious or obscene enough to merit national attention. Congratulations, Denver. Your fan-to-jackass ratio appears to be lower than that of San Diego, Los Angeles and Phoenix. Not to say that the paying customers at the Rockies-Giants series this weekend were scrupulously following the guidelines set for fans and/or decent society. There was the usual booing, chanting, sign-waving, T-shirt-donning and foul gesturing - typical crudity and incivility, the kind we make fun of European soccer fans for displaying.

Former first lady Hillary Clinton took heat when she appeared to belittle moms who stayed home and baked cookies. Karen Hughes created buzz for making the opposite choice: Leaving her job as a top aide to President Bush to head back to Texas to spend more time with her husband and son. And now Teresa Heinz Kerry has struck a nerve by saying that first lady Laura Bush, who quit working as a librarian when she married George W. Bush, didn't have a...

Jason Thimmes traded active military service for a civilian job and a role in the Army Reserve so he could spend more time with his wife and children. But next month, he will be on his way to Afghanistan, possibly for a year, to help run a combat support hospital. "My initial reaction was shock and disbelief," Thimmes, of Millersville, said of the call to active duty. He said it can be difficult on his sons, ages 3 and 6, when he leaves for two weeks of training, much less for a year.
