New York Yankees pitcher Jose Contreras left the team yesterday to reunite with his wife and two daughters in Miami after they defected from Cuba. Contreras defected in 2002. "I hope it gives him a little piece of mind," Yankees manager Joe Torre said. "It certainly will eliminate a concern and a worry. You start thinking in terms of, `Are they ever going to get out?' To not see your children and your wife has got to be devastating." Nicaragua twice granted Contreras' family members visas, but the Cuban government denied permission for them to leave.

Here's a reason to spend a winter day outdoors: The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore kicks off the 2007 season with free admission this weekend. It's a chance for patrons to revisit old animal friends, enjoy a live band and see some new animals, said Lainie Contreras, the zoo's public relations manager. The zoo, which was closed for January and February, recently added an African crested porcupine named Kayin and a male okapi named Hiari. They already have a female okapi, which looks like a cross between a mule and a zebra but is actually in the giraffe family, Contreras said.

It's kind of a reverse birthday celebration. When the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore opens for its 130th year this weekend, it's hosting a free bash and giving - not receiving - presents. Admission is free Saturday and Sunday, and the first 130 guests Saturday will get a free zoo gift. There will also be free cake, live music, guest speakers, a history program and period actors that day. "Everybody's welcome, and we're really hoping that we'll have a huge turnout both days," said Lainie Contreras, the zoo's public relations manager.

A Severn man was killed and his wife was seriously injured yesterday afternoon when their motorcycle collided with a car near Glen Burnie -- one of two fatal accidents in the county during the weekend. Police said Mark M. Kent, 33, was driving the motorcycle with his wife as a passenger when a Chevrolet Corsica driven by an 80-year-old man turned in front of its path on Quarterfield Road near Glen Burnie. The driver, Frank A. Villa of the 1200 block of Reece Road in Severn, was steering the car from the westbound lane into a convenience store parking lot about 3 p.m., crossing the path of the eastbound bike, said Officer John Brothers, a county police traffic investigator.

In the hours after the Orioles scored a suspenseful, one-run victory over a team of Cuban all-stars in Havana five weeks ago, the eight-inning, 10-strikeout performance of Cuban pitcher Jose Contreras was the all the buzz among the large American delegation.So much so that Orioles broadcaster Fred Manfra brought it up to Cuban leader Fidel Castro during a reception for both teams at the Palacio de la Revolucion."You can be very proud of your national team. They played very well today," said Manfra through an interpreter, "and, by the way, can the Orioles sign Contreras?"

Chicago-- --If you wanted to look at last night's Game 1 pitching matchup from a totally objective international perspective, you could have framed it as the Chicago White Sox sending the Roger Clemens of Cuba to the mound to face the Jose Contreras of the United States. That probably sounds a little absurd - since Clemens is recognized as one of the greatest pitchers in major league history - but it wouldn't if you had been in Cuba when Contreras dazzled the Orioles during the historic goodwill series of 1999 (he pitched eight shutout innings of relief and struck out 10 in a 3-2 loss)

CHICAGO - Sal Fasano is supposed to guide a pitcher through his starts, block balls in the dirt, throw out runners, do the things that keep a backup catcher with limited offensive skills in the majors. He's also expected to appreciate his time there, knowing how easily it can be taken away. Making his first start after having his contract purchased from Triple-A Ottawa on Wednesday, Fasano hit a 398-foot home run in the third inning to provide a lead against Cuban defector Jose Contreras, and added to it with a seventh-inning single that scored Keith Reed in the Orioles' 6-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox yesterday at U.S. Cellular Field.

NEW YORK - What we have just seen and what we are about to witness has to constitute the most riveting 48 hours in baseball history. It is an epic that spans two championship series in three cities and one south Florida region. It accounts for two cursed franchises that are among the oldest in baseball, one $167 million juggernaut with 26 World Series titles and one aberrant, expansion organization that bought a World Series five years after its first game, only to be torn down and rebuilt again for another wild and stirring October run. It involves billy goats, curses, Babe, Pudge, In Dusty We Trusty, 1918, comebacks, collapses and a poor, bespectacled fan in a Cubs cap who stuck his hand in the wrong place at the worst moment.

NEW YORK -- Four and a half years later, the Orioles' inability to hit against an amateur pitcher from Cuba didn't look so bad, and the New York Yankees were starting to view Jose Contreras in a different light, too. Contreras dominated the Orioles for seven innings yesterday, much as he did in an exhibition game for the Cuban national team in March 1999. This time, he was making his first career start at Yankee Stadium, as was Orioles rookie Eric DuBose, and New York breezed to a 7-0 victory after getting a three-run homer by Jorge Posada in the first inning.
