At the ESPN Zone, there were a gazillion games to be played, autographs and photos to be gotten with Baltimore Orioles players like Melvin Mora and Aubrey Huff, loads of food to dig into, and a silent auction chock-full of sports memorabilia. Guest Pat Benhoff and son Connor Benhoff squeezed a lot into a few short hours of Brian's Baseball Bash. "We've shot baskets. We got Brian Roberts' picture and his autograph. And we've seen Melvin Mora," Benhoff recounted. Meanwhile, mom Kelly Horner, with daughter Kelsey and son C.J., had just finished eating and it was time for the next thing on their agenda.

My column last week regarding author Bob Staab's book, Growing up in Dundalk: Precious Memories, brought a flood of e-mails, phone calls and inquiries from Dundalkians past and present. They came from Florida, upstate New York and as far away as Minnesota, where Bob Bayne, wrote, "As [a former] Dundalkian now living in Minnesota, I would LOVE this book." It seems that the miles and years have not diminished the fondness people feel for Dundalk, its people and its way of life. Kaye Kourkoules wants to give a copy of the book to several Dundalk relatives so they can "share their memories," she said.

Ask Erykah Badu about her music -- what inspires it, what keeps it fresh -- and she becomes metaphorical. "Have you ever had some hot tea when you had a cold? Some good tea?" she asks, her voice mellow with an old-soul Southern accent. "It works and makes you feel better, don't it? My music, I think, is like some good tea." Phoning from her Dallas home, the artist continues: "Each album has its own life. I'm not the same person I was in 1997." These days, Badu, who will play the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall Tuesday night, is much richer in several ways.
