TORONTO -- The anniversary will pass tomorrow without celebration. Eric Davis, cancer survivor, is too busy savoring life.It was last June 13, as the Orioles opened a three-game interleague series in Atlanta, that Davis underwent surgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in which a fist-sized cancerous mass was removed from his colon. A sizable piece of healthy tissue also was sacrificed. His season appeared over. His life was uncertain.Today the surgical scar remains, but the sharp pain that once doubled him over inside the visitors' dugout at Jacobs Field has vanished.

Except for the hamstring that won't unwind, Eric Davis feels pretty good for a guy only recently back from the career-dead.The time has passed when the Orioles right fielder was ranked as the game's greatest "tool player," but he is still capable enough to be named American League Player of the Week and still intimidating enough to transform a lineup when his body allows.He's a little heavier, maybe, but still possesses one of baseball's most chiseled physiques and one of its quickest sets of hands.

CINCINNATI - As Orioles closer B.J. Ryan continues to rack up the saves this year, his total standing at 16, his value increases on the open market. And it's likely that Ryan will test it, since the two sides aren't negotiating during the season. Ryan made it clear that he wouldn't discuss a contract extension after Opening Day, fearful that the distractions would affect him on the mound. "There won't be any [negotiations]. Not during the season," he said. "We talked beforehand and made it clear that once I get here, this is my job and this is what I'll worry about.

Politicians do it all the time: target churches to reach African-Americans. But instead of wooing voters, health care advocates hope to tap into the power of black clergy to educate blacks on health problems gripping their communities. St. Agnes HealthCare and the foundation of former Orioles star and cancer survivor Eric Davis announced yesterday that they have teamed up on a three-year program to educate ministers on diseases that disproportionately affect blacks. "We are going directly to the leaders," said Angela Hunt, executive director of the Eric Davis Foundation, a nonprofit group born after the Oriole outfielder's colorectal cancer was diagnosed in 1997.

Exactly when Eric Davis' baseball career will end is unknown - "I'll retire when I'm ready. If I wake up tomorrow and want to do it, that will be it," the St. Louis Cardinals right fielder says - but what is certain is the former Oriole's dedication to spreading the word about the perilous disease he battled and beat. Tomorrow at Camden Yards, while the Orioles play the Oakland Athletics, the Johns Hopkins Oncology Center will distribute materials, answer questions and show public service announcements about the screening and early detection of colon cancer.
