Saturday's Alumni Game at Mount St. Joseph marked the celebration of the school's rich baseball heritage. It also marked the end of an era. Before a crowd of supporters and former players, Gaels coach Dave Norton officially announced his retirement after 30 years as the school's baseball coach. Assistant Jody Harris will guide the program next year. Norton cited his role as the school's new principal as the major factor in his decision. He took over in that position in January.

Following more than three decades on the Mount St. Joseph bench, Dave Norton this season is facing a new challenge - one that could prove the most daunting of his professional career. Trying to stay away. After taking the reigns as principal of the Irvington school last year, Norton in August officially stepped down as head baseball coach following 31 seasons. Now, he is vowing to do whatever it takes to aid the Gaels in their transition to new coach Jody Harris, his longtime assistant.

It will be interesting to see what happens this week when Mount St. Joseph's baseball team meets No. 2 Gilman for a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference game. The two teams met Saturday in the finals of the President's Cup and had a free-for-all at the plate. A total of nine pitchers were used, as batters combined for 30 hits and 23 runs in a game Mount St. Joseph won, 12-11. Last week, Gilman coach Larry Sheets said his team's win over MSJ in last year's President's Cup final caused the Greyhounds to lose their edge the next week when they faced the Gaels.

Thank you for recognizing the work of baseball coach Dave Norton ( "Mount St. Joseph coach retires after 30 years," Aug. 17). As the baseball coach for the Mount, Mr. Norton occupies a well-deserved place of honor among the leaders in Maryland high school sports. It is great to see him receive the recognition for his hard work and excellent results over three decades. But to tell the whole story of Mr. Norton, The Sun needs to look beyond the field and into the classrooms and halls of one of the state's finest institutions.

When Mount St. Joseph baseball coach Dave Norton finally got the chance to see Steve Clevenger play in a major league uniform, he was given a reminder of the kind of player he coached years before. Clevenger -- a 2004 graduate of Mount St. Joseph who raised in Glen Burnie and now returning home after being acquired by the Orioles in Tuesday's trade with the Chicago Cubs -- was behind the plate at Nationals Park on Sept. 12 when his pitcher nearly struck Bryce Harper in the hip. Norton watched from the stands as Clevenger went out of his stance to step in front of an upset Harper, who was walking toward the mound with a scowl.

With Wednesday's naming of Douglas, Dunbar and Mervo as the public school entries for the President's Cup baseball tournament, the field is set for the event, which pits private and city school teams against each other the next two weekends. Longtime Mount St. Joseph's coach Dave Norton remembers the last time teams met in such a tournament and suggests no one should take the outcome of these games for granted. Norton can recall a tournament more than 20 years ago in which his team felt it had the upper hand because the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association teams had a greater pool of players to draw from.
