Two fans at Thursday night's Orioles game were taken to the hospital after one fell from the club-level deck at Camden Yards and landed on the other moments before the Orioles broke a tie to beat the Chicago White Sox in a 10-inning game. The Orioles called the incident "an unfortunate accident," but would not offer specific details, citing privacy laws. However, several sources with knowledge of the incident said an adult male was leaning too far over the railing on the first base side of the stadium just above the "Bank of America" advertisement.

The Ravens' 2014 preseason opener Thursday against San Francisco will be the first time fans can see the results of a two-year, $35 million dollar renovation to M&T Bank Stadium that centered on concourse features and audio-visual upgrades, the team announced Tuesday. “We are pleased with the results of our stadium upgrades,” Ravens vice president of stadium operations Roy Sommerhof said in a statement. “The initial improvements we made last year were well-received by our fans, and those who sit in the upper level will really take notice to the recent changes in our stadium.” New improvements for the 2014 seasons include a pair of specialty bars on the west side of the building, and four portable merchandise stands on the upper level.

A suite attendant in white shirt and green bow tie rolls the dessert cart toward the dark wooden door and in moments serves English lemon cake, cheesecake, Grand Marnier in dainty chocolate cups. Nearby, a line forms at the espresso stand as the shoeshine man awaits more customers, more wingtips and tassled loafers.Life is as it should be this evening on the club level of Camden Yards. But wait -- isn't there a ballgame going on around here somewhere?Perhaps. Check the alcoves between the cherry-finish suite doors: Through the glass you can see a swath of green and a few men in athletic garb against a backdrop of packed grandstands.

Many club level seats were empty in the third quarter of Sunday's final regular season home game against Oakland. One ticketholder said many fans prefer to socialize inside the club level's renovated mezzanine. Others simply stay home. When Chiefs executive Mark Donovan arrived in Kansas City last year, he was facing a worst-case scenario. The team was mired in the worst period of losing in franchise history, the nation's economy had tanked, and work had begun on a major renovation to Arrowhead Stadium that would cost $375 million — an investment that, in part, would pay itself off with luxury seating in a high-dollar club level.

The NFL Players Association last week signed off on a league waiver that will allow the Ravens to make $9 million in capital improvements to M&T Bank Stadium over a three-year period. Club president Dick Cass said the improvements actually began a year ago with work on the suite level and south side of the club level. The north side of the club level is also targeted for work, he said. The waiver process allows the Ravens to recoup $3 million of the $9 million budgeted cost. The NFL approved the team's request for the credit last May. NFLPA executive director Gene Upshaw said this week that the union approved waivers for stadiums of three teams - the Ravens, Atlanta Falcons and Carolina Panthers.

The U.S. Coast Guard announced this week that it will elevate its men's and women's club lacrosse teams to Division III varsity status effective with the 2014-2015 academic year. The teams will compete in the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference in the spring of 2015. "This is a very significant stride for the CGA athletics program," athletic director Tim Fitzpatrick said. "It's a great thing to be able to accommodate the interests and talents of so many cadets by bringing two very strong club programs to the varsity level.

Ah, baseball, that most perfect of pastimes. Played on a Euclidean field of diamonds and base paths; achieving a near Platonic ideal with its four balls, three strikes and nine innings, and — with its fine and often heartbreaking lines between home run and foul, safe at home or out at the plate — truly deserving of its renown as a game of inches. And come the Orioles home opener on Monday, some fans will get about three more of them. In addition to improving the team over the off-season, the club apparently also had their fans', um, backs: They've installed 18,000 new seats in the upper deck and club level, The Sun's Ed Gunts reported this week, that are about three inches wider than the old ones.

Oriole Park at Camden Yards will begin the 2011 baseball season with a new concessionaire, wider seats in many areas and more casual seating options as part of a campaign to coax fans from in front of their high-definition television sets and back into the downtown ballpark. The Orioles are also exploring plans to eliminate up to 12 corporate skyboxes along the left and right field lines and replace them with larger group-sales venues and party suites offering a greater variety of seating and entertainment arrangements.

Oriole Park at Camden Yards Since it is a new baseball season, and in prior years I had already chomped on all the sausages and pit beef that the stadium has to offer, I ate only new menu items on Opening Day. I divided my eating adventure into two parts: sampling items available to the multitudes, and tasting fare sold to eaters dining on the exclusive club level. I tested temperatures of the food with an instant-read thermometer. For the hoi polloi, the most promising newcomers were at Noah's Pretzel stand.

This weekend, the Ravens kick off a new season, one that pigskin prognosticators say might not be too pleasing to watch. Yet whether the team wins, loses or has a game-deciding field goal dangle on the uprights, fans can enjoy the eats. That is what I did last week while watching the preseason struggle between the Ravens and the Falcons at M&T Bank Stadium. Best bite outside The grilled steak sandwich, $9, at the Oregon Grille stand on Ravenswalk is made with top sirloin that is marinated, grilled and served with peppers, provolone cheese and chipotle mayonnaise on roasted focaccia bread.

Give Pompey a break After reading Lem Satterfield's Nov. 11 article, "Pompey set to confront his past," I became very livid to have found that Pete Pompey's fine coaching career could be written about in such a disingenuous manner without regard for the event at hand, an opportunity to bathe the football players in a positive light. The story had to be spoiled by rekindling old news about Pompey's alleged indiscretions, or, simply put, his bad judgment for caring about his extended family, the kids in his programs and the overall community's interest.
