SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles third baseman Mark Reynolds compared the past few days of spring training workouts to Groundhog Day. Friday's first intrasquad game gave Orioles like Reynolds the opportunity to finally similate a gameday competition. "It was good to go play and put on your uniform, (to) face live pitching and be put in a game situation,” Reynolds said. “It feels like baseball is finally back.” In Friday's intrasquad, Reynolds, who made 26 errors in 114 games at third base last season, made a pair of nice plays at third base.

HANUKKAH IS a holiday that celebrates dedication - the re-dedication of the Jewish temple in Jerusalem, after the Maccabees defeated the Syrian-Greeks more than 2,100 years ago, and dedication to the Jewish faith - according to Rabbi Mark Panoff of Temple Isaiah. The Jewish congregation meets at Oakland Mills Interfaith Center. That's why Hanukkah was chosen as the occasion to dedicate the synagogue's new Israeli flag Sunday. The flag was donated in honor of Phyllis Geisler of Oakland Mills, a beloved member of the congregation who died last winter.
