Whether intended as a prank or a protest, Orioles right fielder Albert Belle created an organizational swirl last night by posting a petition at his locker to boycott next Monday's exhibition in Rochester.Belle's handmade sign said simply: Petition to Boycott Exhibition Game in Rochester on Monday, 6/28/99. Below were spaces for players to register their support. Belle was the first to sign, and later on Scott Erickson's signature appeared underneath. Club officials apparently were not amused.

It may have taken decades for Major League Baseball to come around to the idea of using video review to confirm or overturn questionable umpiring decisions, but it didn't take Orioles manager Buck Showalter very long to come up with a plan to make the most of the new, expanded replay system. If you're going to successfully navigate a new program that is designed to second-guess the baseball world's best umpires, who better to put in front of the replay monitor than someone who had worked as an umpire himself?

We got along well. We had a good conversation," said Watkins, who had expressed frustration on Wednesday after failing to hear from Thrift during the general managers meetings in Dana Point, Calif.

A strip club on The Block has been ordered to shut down for five days and fined $8,000 after the city's liquor board concluded that a 16-year-old girl danced there for a week. The owner of Club Pussycat, William G. Wantland Sr., declined to comment yesterday. The club has previously been cited for similar infractions. Club officials told the board that the girl fooled them into thinking she was 18. Police discovered her during a routine check of the club in July. They said she was a runaway from Baltimore County.

The Orioles' new look this spring won't be limited to a reconfigured pitching staff. It will also include new dimensions for Camden Yards. Weeks after the playing field was plowed under for installation of a new drainage system and fresh sod, the club is expected to announce changes today that resulted from a relocation of home plate. Club officials confirmed that the plate was brought closer to the backstop and slightly angled more toward left field. The new alignment, according to club officials, consists of fences that are seven feet farther from the plate, and foul lines that are almost flush against the left- and right-field corners.

The Orioles will attend a three-day workout for top Dominican shortstop prospect Miguel Angel Sano this month, another sign that the organization is considering making a serious run at signing the coveted international free agent. Sano, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound 16-year-old who has drawn comparisons to Florida Marlins star shortstop Hanley Ramirez, worked out for the Orioles at their Dominican baseball academy June 5. Orioles director of player development David Stockstill said he was very impressed but the club wants to get a more extended look at the player who is reportedly seeking a signing bonus of about $5 million or $6 million.

Maryland Jockey Club officials hope a post-Derby bump after a stunning upset Saturday in Kentucky by Mine That Bird will boost sluggish Preakness Stakes ticket sales, but they are bracing for a more subdued scene at Baltimore's famously raucous horse race. The recession has dampened spending habits of ordinary spectators and corporate party hosts at the middle leg of racing's Triple Crown, with advance infield ticket sales down about 17 percent compared with this time last year. Mobile device BlackBerry is the race's first "title sponsor" in recent memory, but corporate underwriting revenue overall is down about 10 percent, or $75,000, because of the loss of such sponsors as UPS, Heineken and the Maryland State Lottery, jockey club officials said.

While a picture-perfect afternoon greeted an announced 5,253 on the opening day of the 2008 Pimlico spring meeting yesterday - 600 more than last year's opener - the climate wasn't nearly as friendly for the recently concluded winter meet at Laurel Park. Total wagering at Laurel this winter was down 17.3 percent from last year, dropping from $3.56 million per day to $2.943 million, according to figures released yesterday.

It is a traditionalist's nightmare, the nine-game Orioles homestand that began last night against the Colorado Rockies, and that's not the half of it. The three teams that will visit Camden Yards didn't exist in their present form the last time the Orioles were in a World Series, and none of them is even in the American League. But through the commingled miracles of expansion, relocation and marketing gimmickry, the Rockies, Washington Nationals and Arizona Diamondbacks will visit Baltimore at what could be a watershed juncture in the recent history of the Orioles franchise.

Not long after receiving the best news of his young professional career, Adam Loewen sat alone on a bus. Leaving his Bowie Baysox uniform behind, the 22-year-old pitcher boarded a bus in Altoona, Pa., to catch a flight in Pittsburgh the next morning. He was headed to Seattle, where he would make his major league debut for the Orioles the next night against the Mariners. The two-hour ride would give Loewen time to notify family and friends that he had finally gotten the call. But the driver got lost trying to navigate through the Pennsylvania night, leaving Loewen four hours to wrestle with his emotions.

Katz and the Harford County group split the $2,500 cost of the lunch.

And they have offered to pay for maintenance of any fields the county would offer to the club at Laurel Woods Elementary School.

There really are only two ways to go with the Miguel Tejada saga. Either the Orioles are in denial about their superstar shortstop, or the rest of us should never again believe our eyes. Tejada is leading the team in batting average, home runs and RBIs, so there's certainly no reason to panic, but the change in his demeanor over the past year has been so obvious that it's difficult to understand why club officials don't think it's anything to worry about. "He's doing what he's supposed to be doing," manager Sam Perlozzo said yesterday.

Saying that he regretted asking for a trade and was embarrassed by all the attention his request drew, Orioles All-Star shortstop Miguel Tejada told team vice president Jim Duquette yesterday afternoon that he wants to remain with the club and help it become a winner. "He told me that this has been bothering him since he said it and he felt bad about this," said Duquette, who spoke to Tejada in a three-way cell phone call that was organized by third baseman Melvin Mora, one of Tejada's closest friends.
