It's an old joke, and not a particularly funny one, either. Its punchline is narrowly focused, but any sports fan who grew up in or around Baltimore gets it. Anyone who ever took a glove to Memorial Stadium or Camden Yards or a pen and keepsake book to one of those offseason Orioles caravans will smile softly today while reading it. The joke goes something like this: Question: Who doesn't have an Elrod Hendricks autograph? Answer: The one person who never tried. Countless times in the late 1970s and early 1980s I stood on my front porch waiting anxiously as my sisters and parents readied for the drive down Loch Raven Boulevard toward Memorial Stadium.

Maese is off base in UM comparison I have had a high opinion of Rick Maese's work since he began with The Sun. After reading Thursday's column ["To avoid men's blueprint, Frese will build off title"], I now wonder if Peter Schmuck is really kidding when he speaks about Mr. Maese's youth and inexperience. Maese says Brenda Frese would be wise not to follow the blueprint "scripted by the school's men's program after it won the national championship in 2002." Sounds like something disgruntled fans of the men's team would eat up, doesn't it?

Her late husband's team began another season yesterday at Camden Yards. Her youngest son threw out the ceremonial first pitch. Merle Hendricks wanted no part of it. "They asked me to take part in the pre-game ceremony, but I couldn't in good conscience be down there on that field giving the impression that I'm OK with everything, because I'm not," said the widow of the Orioles' longtime bullpen coach, who died suddenly in December. As she spoke, she sat on a couch inside the club-level suite where her family and friends watched the Orioles' 9-6 victory.

WELL, THE OLD game show is back, and Julie Elrod, who owns the American Academy of Martial Arts with her husband, Ron, is being featured in an episode of "To Tell the Truth." For those not familiar with the original, the show features three people - one with a real claim to fame and two imposters who try to pass themselves off as that person. A panel of celebrities asks questions and tries to smoke out the imposters. The imposters can lie, but the "real" person must tell the truth. Elrod, one of the highest ranking Ninja women in the country, will be the one who has to tell the truth.

Maybe Elrod Hendricks could only have happened in Baltimore, where our heroes don't have to be bigger than life. They just have to be like us ... or, in Elrod's case, they just have to like us as much as we like them. I mean, in what other city could the bullpen coach be one of the main attractions on the team's annual cruise? And I ask that question without any underlying sarcasm about the current level of starpower in our sports community. Plenty of players and former Orioles stars take advantage of the opportunity to cruise the Caribbean for free in exchange for their willingness to schmooze with the paying customers, but I'm going to tell you a little secret that might bruise some of their egos.

A memorial service honoring former Orioles coach and catcher Elrod Hendricks will be held Thursday at 11 a.m. at The Cathedral of Mary Our Queen on North Charles Street. Hendricks died Wednesday night of a heart attack suffered at the BWI Airport Marriott in Linthicum a day before his 65th birthday. He wore an Orioles uniform longer than anybody else and was the team's bullpen coach for 28 years. Since 1968, when Hendricks joined the organization as a catcher, he had been with the club for all but 1 1/2 of 38 seasons.

Where am I? Fooled by the unseasonably warm temperature. This is Maryland. The people aren't dressed like they're headed to a nightclub, even when buying milk at the Circle-K. And they're speaking English. I'm weirded out. What I wouldn't give to have one homeless guy in a pink T-shirt trying to sell me a newspaper. The Orioles left themselves open to some criticism this spring, with the Melvin Mora negotiations dragging along and the offense shutting down and their spring training record looking like it should belong to the expansion Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Slumped down in his chair after a hard day of work, he starts off slowly, measuring every word in a hushed tone. Then, the words start to spew from Melvin Mora's mouth, gaining decibels with each sentence. His face contorts, shifting from smile to scowl at a moment's notice, and his mood appears to fluctuate as often as his tone. Mora, an All-Star third baseman and the longest tenured member of the club, may not be the face of the Orioles' franchise because Miguel Tejada is more celebrated and Brian Roberts is probably more revered by fans.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- While the organization continues formulating plans to honor Elrod Hendricks on Opening Day at Camden Yards, the club has memorialized the beloved coach at its spring training facility. When players took the field yesterday at Fort Lauderdale Stadium, Hendricks' No. 44, in black, decorated a panel of the right-field wall. "It hits home ... dearly for all of us," said Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo. "When you looked up and you saw it, I can still hear Elrod talking.

The stoic Hall of Famer, the one with the icy glare and unnerving calm in baseball's most pressured situations, stood outside the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen in a spitting rain yesterday contemplating his most difficult challenge. An hour earlier, Orioles legend Eddie Murray had spoken to a congregation of about 1,000 mourners, telling them how much Elrod "Ellie" Hendricks had meant to him. The intensely private Murray spoke from his heart, retelling amusing anecdotes about the former teammate who became his big brother.

The Orioles continue to conduct their business with heavy hearts. Calls must be made and returned, but it's never easy while in mourning. Imagine how Mike Flanagan feels, having been a teammate and close friend of Elrod Hendricks, and the man who had to make the incredibly difficult decision to relieve Elrod of his bullpen duties for fear that the daily grind, including the travel, would be too much. I can only imagine. I hope Flanny knows how much Elrod loved him. I heard the man speak about him enough times to know this is true.

As I drove in to work yesterday, I listened to radio talk shows still mourning Elrod Hendricks' death. That was all the callers wanted to discuss. When I got to the office and turned on my computer, I found my inbox jammed with responses to the testimonial column I had written after hearing the news. A quick spin around the Internet turned up hundreds of emotional postings about Elrod on an assortment of Web sites, including this newspaper's. It occurred to me that someone uneducated in the ways of Baltimore or the Orioles might not understand.
