Major league officials were relieved when the Orioles and Royals were able to play Game 1 of the American League Championship Series at Camden Yards in spite of a constant threat of rain. They might not be so lucky on Monday night. The forecast calls for a 100 percent chance of rain during the day and a 90 percent chance of rain on Monday night in the Kansas City area. If Mother Nature makes it impossible to get the game in, the same scenario will apply that was in play in Baltimore.

National anthem: Citizen Cope, a Washington-based singer and musician once dubbed "Washington's most soulful export since Marvin Gaye" gives a slowful rendition. Unlike most anthem singles who join fans in Maryland for their "O" moment, Cope waits until they're done to finish. First pitch ceremony: Scott McGregor, whose shutout to clinch the 1983 World Series in five games over the Philadelphia Phillies marked the last time the Orioles won it all, certainly does better than Boog Powell did with similar duties before Game 1 on Friday.

The NCAA Division II and III women's lacrosse committees have selected Stevenson as the new host of the 2013 Division II and Division III championships after they were moved from Montclair State (N.J.) because of a new state law allowing sports wagering on professional and college games. The semifinals for both divisions will be held Saturday, May 18 with the championship games May 19. "The Baltimore area is such a hotbed for lacrosse, so going to this area for our championships is such a natural fit," said Susan Hoffman, chairwoman of the Division III Women's Lacrosse Committee and associate athletic director and senior woman administrator at SUNY-Brockport.

Many banners overlook the pool at the Newton White Athletic Center, but three stand out. The 1977, '78 and '79 Johns Hopkins men's swimming national championships stare out over the pool, as if to motivate those who have qualified for this year's championships today through Saturday in Indianapolis. On the pool deck, coach George Kennedy writes practice information on a whiteboard as his men's and women's teams wait patiently in the water. After a brief period of instruction, the swimmers begin to warm up with paced laps, going about their business of trying to earn more titles.

Races in the Baltimore Running Festival will begin an hour earlier than originally scheduled because of the Orioles' deep run into the baseball postseason. In a letter to participants posted on the running festival's website , organizer Lee Corrigan wrote that start times were made earlier to "ensure all public safety personnel can be deployed in an organized fashion. " The festival, which includes a marathon, half-marathon, group relay, 5k and kids race, will stagger starting times between 7 a.m. and 8:45 a.m. on Oct. 18, the day the Orioles and Kansas City Royals would potentially play Game 7 of the American League Championship Series at Camden Yards.

All Orioles manager Buck Showalter had to do was watch the Kansas City Royals' comeback win over the Oakland Athletics in the American League wild-card game last week to see how dangerous his team's AL Championship Series opponent can be on the base paths. The Royals erased a four-run, sixth-inning deficit by running circles around the Athletics, stealing a postseason-record seven bases in the game on their way to a 9-8 win in 12 innings. They've been successful on 12 of 13 stolen-base attempts in the postseason heading into the ALCS.

DETROIT -- Buck Showalter has played postseason chess several times before, and like most participants as confident as he is, he has lost more times than not. But in the Orioles' triumphant American League Division Series sweep of the Detroit Tigers, the manager pulled all the right strings. Before the Orioles' series-clinching Game 3 win over the Tigers on Sunday afternoon, he switched the rotation, tabbing right-hander Bud Norris to start. And down to the final two outs, he veered from the unconventional, putting the winning run on base in the bottom of the ninth with an intentional walk before allowing closer Zach Britton to finish a three-game sweep of the Tigers.

Tradition reigned supreme at the Anne Arundel County Track and Field Championships. Fifth-ranked Old Mill nipped No. 6 Annapolis by 3.3 points to capture its third consecutive boys title, while No. 6 Broadneck used an eight-point cushion to slip past Meade and collect its fourth straight girls championship at Annapolis High School yesterday. Old Mill scored at least one point in 15 of 18 events to compile 116.3 points. That was enough to edge the Panthers (113) and give the Patriots their 19th county crown in 27 years.

LEONARDTOWN -- "The rings are hung; the track is clear. Charge, fair maiden. " Upon the announcer's command, Mikayla Miller of St. Leonard, aboard the horse Tyke, raced down an 80-foot jousting course, lance in hand. Covering the distance in less than 9 seconds and keeping her arm and upper body as still as possible, she rode through three arches and speared the half-inch ring hanging from each of them. Competing at the St. Mary's County Fair Joust tournament last weekend, the semiprofessional rider performed well enough to qualify at that level for the state championship next Saturday in Crownsville.
