Members of the Bluford Drew Jemison Rockets baseball team gathered in a group on the third-base line of Utz Twardowicz Field on Tuesday afternoon. The day was already special. The weather was gorgeous, they were playing baseball and knew they had raised enough money to keep their previously struggling program afloat. But all of a sudden, their day got even better. Orioles center fielder Adam Jones walked through the third-base gate, waved and strolled down the base path toward the players, many of whose mouths hung open in shock.

Ravens running back Ray Rice moved closer to putting his legal woes behind him when he was accepted into a diversionary program that could help to clear his record of charges stemming from a physical altercation with his then-fiancee in a New Jersey casino. Ravens president Dick Cass , one of many team officials who have supported Rice since the incident in February, said Tuesday's news was positive, but acknowledged that there are several steps the running back still has to take.    “I think what Ray wants to do is talk to the media about the incident, and I think he will do that in the near future,” Cass said following Wednesday's news conference at the team's downtown stadium in which the Ravens announced a 10-year, $60 million extension of their partnership with M&T Bank . “He's got some limits on how much he can talk about, but I think he wants to address the media.

Not since Richard Nixon assured an audience of newspaper editors in 1973 that "I am not a crook" has a major political figure so conspicuously defended his character as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has done in declaring, "I am not a bully. " The governor's remark in a mea culpa news conference in Trenton came in the context of the brouhaha over the closing of George Washington Bridge traffic lanes into the town of Fort Lee on the Jersey side. It was ordered by Mr. Christie aides as a vengeful act against the town's Democratic mayor, who had not supported the governor's re-election campaign last year.

Because of occasional budget crunches during his 18 years at Maryland, Edell, who resigned as Terps coach Sept. 3, and his team were reduced to picking up peanut shells, cracked mustard packets and other trash to add $1,600 to his budget. "I went through some highs and lows at Maryland," said Edell, 57. "You haven't lived until you've picked up peanut shells.

I have commended to your attention the catalogue of stale opening devices compiled by the late Dick Thien, trusting that you will know what to do when confronted by the Webster's Dictionary lead and the King James lead. Friends don't let friends write cliche leads.  This morning I opened the paper and my baleful eye fell on a stinking cliche not held up for scorn in Mr. Thien's list: "Ah, fried chicken. "  There is an "ah" lead in a text in my vault that I bring out for the copy editing class.
