When the Detroit Tigers won 35 of their first 40 games in 1984, building a huge lead in the American League East when no wild card existed, there wasn't much for the Orioles to focus upon besides individual accomplishments. The pennant race had become an illusion, with the Tigers leaving the blocks about a month ahead of the other entrants. But Cal Ripken still showed up every day, still expected to be in the lineup. And he still added to his growing legacy. Coming off his MVP season and possessing a new, four-year contract that paid him about $4 million, Ripken batted .304 with 27 homers, 86 RBIs and 103 runs scored while again playing every inning of every game.

PHILADELPHIA -- We watch Dale Murphy struggle with the game this season and we don't think of the back-to-back MVP awards he won a decade ago. We don't remember the class with which he graced all around him. We don't reflect on his 398 career home runs and imagine him standing on the steps at Cooperstown one sunny day to have a great career memorialized in bronze.Instead, we think of Willie Mays shuffling through one last, sad season with the Mets, his brilliance long since spent.We think of Steve Carlton, already cut loose in Minnesota and San Francisco and Cleveland, getting rocked in his final desperate comeback attempt: an intrasquad game at the Carpenter Complex.

I hadn't felt that in a while." - Curt Schillling, who returned to Philadelphia for the first time as a member of the Diamondbacks It's a fact: Owner Ted Turner and former star outfielder Dale Murphy were inducted into the Braves Hall of Fame.
