The title on Page 54 of the Ravens' media guide is "equipment manager." But the words barely describe Ed Carroll's multitude of duties with the team. In addition to washing and drying jerseys and pants, creating budgets and ordering new gear, Carroll monitors weather forecasts and has become an expert on grass. He's responsible for meeting the team's equipment needs, which sometimes includes tracking down discontinued products. And he makes sure the Ravens receive fair treatment on the road.

NEW YORK -- Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez had a special gift for rookie Kevin Gausman on Friday at Yankee Stadium: a new Rolex watch. It was payment for uniform No. 31, which Gausman switched to in the offseason after Dave Wallace joined the club. When Jimenez signed this winter he wanted either No. 30 - which Tillman had - or 31, which was Gausman's. Orioles equipment manager Chris Guth asked Gausman if he would give up his number, and the rookie agreed. Gausman then chose No. 39, which had been Jason Hammel's number.

Fred Schubach, who started with the Baltimore Colts as the team's equipment manager and ascended to the position of player personnel director, died suddenly on Monday in Atlantic City, N.J., at age 70. Schubach left the Colts after 30 years of service in 1983. He later scouted for the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs before retiring. For virtually his entire life, he was involved in sports. His father spent 27 years with the Philadelphia Eagles as equipment manager and, in the early years, Fred worked as his assistant.

Peter Athens has traded the football for a lacrosse stick. Athens, who was the starting quarterback of a Towson football program that advanced to the Football Championship Subdivision title game in January, has joined the lacrosse team. He was present - but did not play in - the No. 19 Tigers' 14-9 victory over Navy on Tuesday night. The 6-foot-1, 209-pound fifth-year senior was an All-Southern Maryland Athletic Conference player in lacrosse twice at Huntingtown and played for Towson in 2012 before concentrating on football.

SAN PABLO, Calif. — You wouldn't expect to find a Stanford graduate working in a place like this, handing out towels and washing uniforms as an equipment manager at a community college. Nor is this a place you'd think to look for a former Dallas Cowboys cornerback who played in three Super Bowls. Benny Barnes is both. Yet here he sits at a desk, a steel cage standing between him and a nondescript locker room at Contra Costa College. And he couldn't be happier. The 60-year-old Barnes, perhaps best remembered for a critical pass-interference penalty against Lynn Swann in the 1979 Super Bowl, has been on the job for 15 years.

There was champagne in his locker and the closest thing to a red-carpet treatment that the equipment manager could find. Joey Hamilton finally got a hit.San Diego's right-handed pitcher had been futilely chasing his first big-league hit for two seasons and 57 at-bats, believed to be the worst slump at the beginning of a player's career. He surprised everyone when he lofted a leadoff double over the head of center fielder Brett Butler during the Padres' 8-4 win over the New York Mets on Friday night.

They came out of nowhere - a nameless, patchwork expansion team peopled by rookies, free agents and vagabonds roaming the netherworld between college and pro football. The mix proved magical. In their short, two-year fling in the Canadian Football League, the Baltimore Stallions won a championship - five years ago today. In the process, they captured the hearts of a cadre of fans eager to embrace any form of surrogate Colts. The Stallions also aggravated an entire nation of flannel-wearing, ice-fishing, Mountie-loving denizens vexed by the success of these blue-and-silver upstarts from south of their border.

Many at home with cheating The din produced by Indianapolis Colts fans on Nov. 28 grew so loud that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger couldn't bark signals to the center crouching just before him. It was so loud that, according to some commentators, it couldn't have been human. After the Colts won, 26-7, several media figures accused the team of pumping artificial noise into the RCA Dome during Steelers possessions. The practice would be against league rules (the Washington Redskins drew a $20,000 fine in 2000 for blasting cheerleader noise)
