SALISBURY - Erik Bedard is healthy again, but even he knows his body's limitations. So when the scoreboard at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium - the home of the Single-A Delmarva Shorebirds - flashed Bedard's fastball as topping speeds of 96 and 97 mph in a game against the Lexington Legends last night, the 26-year-old left-hander quickly downplayed the numbers. "Nah, that's not right," he said. "That's what I saw in the first inning, and I was like, `Wow, I feel pretty good today.'" Sarcasm aside, Bedard was impressive in his second rehabilitation start since the Orioles placed him on the disabled list May 26 with a strained medial collateral ligament in his left knee.

SALISBURY -- Each season it seems the Delmarva Shorebirds have a tougher act to follow.In 1996 -- their first year of existence -- they made the South Atlantic League championship series as a Montreal Expos farm team.Then last year -- as an Oriole affiliate -- they qualified for the playoffs as a wild card and went all the way to the title.In the process, the Shorebirds broke their own league attendance record by attracting more than 324,000, further stamping the club as an instant success story.

The Delmarva Shorebirds have been the most consistent winning team in the Orioles' organization of late, but new manager Butch Davis might have trouble producing another playoff team. "We've got our hands full," said the former Oriole, who moves up to Single-A after two seasons as the skipper at Rookie-level Gulf Coast. "It's a pretty young club and right now I'm not sure how good we can be because this entire roster has only been together for a couple games. We're going to have to minimize our mistakes."

When it comes to professional baseball, nothing will keep diehard fans away from their favorite ballpark. These faithful folks have their season tickets, their official team jersey, their giant foam rubber finger. And they're always ready to root, root, root for the home team. Now the rest of us -- and we know who we are -- go to a game only when the home team is winning, and if it's a nice, sunny day, and if the opposing team's pitcher is a superstar like Boston's Pedro Martinez, and if the home team is giving away free floppy hats and setting off fireworks after the game.
