COLUMBIA, S.C. --The Maryland baseball team did what a lot of people didn't think was possible and, in the process, it became a most unlikely squad to enjoy a dogpile in Carolina Stadium. The Terps won the Columbia, S.C., regional of the NCAA tournament with a 10-1 victory over top-seeded South Carolina on Sunday night and advanced to the super regionals for the first time in school history. It's going to be an all-Atlantic Coast Conference affair as Maryland will travel to Charlottesville, Va., next weekend to face Virginia.

ASHBURN, Va. -- They came at different times, for different reasons, and with different perspectives. When Brandon Lloyd arrived at Redskins Park last spring after spending his first three seasons in the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers, he looked at the trade as a chance to play with a winning team and a veteran quarterback, and in the new high-powered offense Al Saunders had just brought from Kansas City.

Running back Lorenzo Taliaferro was the last player to walk off the Ravens' practice field Saturday, holding an upbeat conversation with coach John Harbaugh following the end of a rookie minicamp. It was a meaningful moment for the fourth-round draft pick from Coastal Carolina (Myrtle Beach, S.C.) considering that academic problems in high school nearly derailed a promising football career. Growing up in Williamsburg, Va., Taliaferro was ruled academically ineligible for his sophomore season at Bruton High School.

MIAMI -- San Francisco 49ers cornerback Deion Sanders is lobbying for a chance to play more than defense in the Super Bowl.Sanders put his arm around coach George Seifert at one point during San Francisco's practice yesterday and the two talked for a few minutes. It ended with Seifert laughing."If he puts his arm around me, you know exactly what he's asking for -- offensive playing time," Seifert said. "Hopefully, we'll be in a position [Sunday] to do it."That's an indication that Seifert may not want to risk Sanders as a kick returner unless the 49ers have the game in hand.

Normally, when children find out they are going to Disney World, all they can think about is riding roller coasters and meeting Mickey Mouse.

On the field: When Todd Pratt swung and missed at a fourth-inning pitch from Rick Krivda, he inadvertently hit Chris Hoiles on the back as the Orioles catcher rose to throw to second. The throw bounced wide of the base as Bernard Gilkey slid in safely, and trainer Richie Bancells came out to check on Hoiles, who stayed in the game.In the dugout: Manager Davey Johnson left it in the third inning to briefly dispute a balk call on Krivda that awarded Carl Everett second base. Krivda also was called for a balk while trying to keep Anaheim's Rickey Henderson on Aug. 16.In the clubhouse: With the expansion draft coming up, Lenny Webster was asked if he'd welcome the chance to become the No. 1 catcher for either Tampa Bay or Arizona.

Annapolis standout senior C'Vette Henson plans to take her basketball talents to the University of Maryland. The second-team All-Metro guard, who averaged 18.4 points, 5.0 rebounds and 4.6 assists this past season, will attend Maryland on an academic grant and technically be welcomed on the women's basketball team as a walk-on next season. "It's very exciting," said Henson, who also considered Bowie State. "I wanted to go there to get more exposure toward maybe playing in the WNBA or whatever other job I may get. My goal is to become a better player and help boost the program."

Henry Sims, a 6-foot-10, 225-pound All-Metro center from Mount St. Joseph, committed orally to Georgetown over the weekend. "When I visited, I really appreciated coach [John] Thompson's honesty about getting to play right away," said Sims, who narrowed down his choices to Georgetown and Virginia from a list that included Boston College, Florida and Maryland. "Coach Thompson told me that if I worked hard, I would get a chance as a freshman." This past season, DaJuan Summers - a two-time All-Metro forward and The Sun's Player of the Year in 2005 - started as a freshman for the Hoyas, who reached the Final Four.

No one should have been surprised when Orioles third baseman Manny Machado came out of surgery Monday and the timetable for his recovery suddenly was extended into the 2014 season. When you're dealing with a young man who is expected to be one of the greatest players of his generation, slowplaying his return from a reconstructive knee operation makes perfect sense. The only reason that the outlook seemed so much rosier three weeks ago was because of the natural inclination of everyone involved - the player, the team and the medical staff - to project the best-case scenario until there is compelling evidence to the contrary.

After his group's first-round elimination in Friday evening's championship round of the Ravens' 7-on-7 high school football tournament at M&T Bank Stadium, St. Paul's coach Paul Bernstorf sat cross-legged in a chair at a shaded end of the field. He opened up the book he's been working on this summer. His players, representing one of the final eight teams to advance from the 64-team field, were with the crowd in the stands behind him in their Under Armour dry-fit T-shirts - highlighter yellow with the word "ATTITUDE" emblazoned on the chest.

The Baltimore Bohemian isn't your usual sports club. The team splits a case of beer at practice, it wins national championships and it plays sports you've probably never heard of. The Baltimore Gaelic Athletic Association, or BGAA, is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. The Bohemian, as the organization is commonly called, is separated into four teams that play traditional Irish sports such as men's and women's Gaelic football, camogie and hurling. But while that sounds like a league for displaced Irishmen - and it is to an extent - the Baltimore team is predominantly made up of people trying the games for the first time.

The Orioles have known since Sunday night that they were playoff-bound. On Wednesday night, they finally learned whom they'll play. The club will begin its first postseason in 15 years at 8:37 p.m. Friday in Arlington, Texas, where the Orioles will have to win a wild-card game against the Rangers to keep their season alive. If the Orioles win Friday night, they'll begin the American League Division Series at home Sunday against the New York Yankees. The Orioles cost themselves home-field advantage in the wild-card round with a 4-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday night, surrendering three home runs to third baseman Evan Longoria.

Standing in the living room of his mother's Belair-Edison home late one summer evening, Allan Chaney raised his plain white T-shirt below his collarbone. He had just been asked to show his chest, to reveal the remnants of a more than two-year ordeal that threatened his life - let alone the once-prized recruit's basketball career. Directly over his sternum lies a 3-inch scar, a byproduct of last March's surgery to remove abnormal tissue surrounding his heart. But the scar tells only part of Chaney's story.

During last week's Cal Ripken Major/70 World Series at the Ripken Academy in Aberdeen, a few dozen disabled children were afforded the opportunity to play ball, a chance that might not have been there were it not for the League of Dreams program. Convening on the turf practice field on Saturday afternoon, the local children were treated to a baseball clinic, during which they were instructed on the hitting, fielding and throwing aspects of the game, and were supposed to take part in a scrimmage game, but that was canceled when a heavy rainstorm cut short the proceedings.

Zack Greinke , who has two years left on his deal with the Royals, is talking like he's getting the itch to move to a contender.
