FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Sal Fasano has a World Series ring, but he didn't bring it to Orioles training camp. It's not that he's embarrassed about it. But how to explain this ring? See, the 33-year-old backup catcher appeared in exactly two games for the 2002 Angels after being called up from the minor leagues in late September. "One at-bat, but I threw out two guys: Ichiro and [Willie] Bloomquist," Fasano said - with pride. In other words, the defensive work behind the plate was, is, more important than the hitting.

Doctors at the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research have received a major boost in their efforts to find new treatments, and even a cure, for the autoimmune disease — a $45 million donation that is a record for the university system. The donation, directed by the family of a grateful patient from Indiana, was announced Thursday by the center's director, Dr. Alessio Fasano during a press conference in the University of Maryland BioPark in West Baltimore, which was attended by top university administrators, staff and some patients.

New York -- Cory Lidle was a baseball player by profession, but he didn't look like one, nor did he act like one. He was 5 feet 11 and 175 pounds and preferred to play chess, poker, pool and, sadly, to fly planes. Lidle, 34, was nicknamed "Snacks" by his Oakland Athletics teammates several years ago for his love of all things sweet, and he helped add some color to the New York Yankees' clubhouse this season by pushing chess. And then there was his interest in flying, which led him to buy a plane and take the time to earn his license last winter.

Dr. Blake M. Paterson, who co-founded Baltimore biotech Alba Therapeutics Corp. and recently won the Greater Baltimore Committee's Leadership in Bioscience Award for the second consecutive year, has been replaced as chief executive of his company, Alba confirmed yesterday.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - The Orioles included Sal Fasano among their six cuts yesterday, clearing the way for Geronimo Gil to serve as the backup catcher on Opening Day. Fasano was reassigned to the minor league camp in Sarasota, along with nonroster invitees Keith Reed, Napoleon Calzado, Ed Rogers and Keith McDonald. All five players will accompany the team to Oklahoma City for a two-game exhibition series against the St. Louis Cardinals that begins Thursday. Tim Raines Jr. was optioned to Triple-A Ottawa, bringing the spring roster to 34 players.

Mike Hargrove worked his way through a pack of reporters to an empty spot in the visiting dugout, surveying the scene last night at Camden Yards from a different vantage point. The large number of microphones and tape recorders in his face didn't distort his view. "It's obviously a beautiful ballpark," Hargrove said. "It's a different view, but it's good to be back." Hargrove, the manager of the Seattle Mariners, was back at Camden Yards for the first time since the 2003 season. That was the last of his four seasons as the Orioles' manager, as he was fired after his team couldn't finish any higher than fourth place.

CHICAGO -- Knowing the Orioles lost two starting outfielders to injuries, Sal Fasano figured his stay at Triple-A Ottawa would continue indefinitely. Why would a catcher think any differently? Fasano said he was "stunned" when told by Lynx manager Dave Trembley that the Orioles were purchasing his contract Wednesday. They sent down reliever Rick Bauer and decided to go with 11 pitchers and three catchers, with Fasano providing another right-handed bat on a team that lost Sammy Sosa (staph infection)

Unsure whether a young starting pitcher could navigate through a bases-loaded jam without crashing last night, Orioles shortstop Miguel Tejada provided a little insurance. He flashed a sign to catcher Sal Fasano, who read it clearly through the raindrops. All they needed to do was execute. Exploding out of his crouch, Fasano fired the ball to Tejada, who moved behind Trot Nixon and applied the tag at second base to end the fifth inning. The pickoff allowed Daniel Cabrera to keep his one-run lead.

Serena Fasano loves yogurt - she's particularly partial to a vanilla-flavored brand complemented by a chocolate-crunch topping. Her work on yogurt's anti-bacterial qualities has earned the 16-year-old Howard County high school senior a trip to the regional Siemens Competition in Math, Science and Technology, held at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh this weekend. "I just saw something that had always been there," Fasano said of her research, which focused on a protein in yogurt that blocks the growth of a particular kind of bacteria and which could hold promise for the treatment of intestinal diseases.

You'd think the Phillies would have waited to let the hysteria die down over the Sal Fasano signing before announcing Tom Gordon's deal. He's a quality backup, and the equivalent of an extra coach, with surprising power and the ability to call a good game and work with young pitchers.

Not so long ago, celiac disease was considered to be an allergy to gluten, a protein found in wheat and other grains, that predominantly affected children. Now, however, it is known that celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that affects about 1 percent of people in the United States, says Dr. Alessio Fasano, director of the Center for Celiac Research at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. What is celiac disease? Nowadays, celiac disease is perceived to be an autoimmune disease like diabetes and multiple sclerosis, not a food allergy to wheat as thought before.

In one examining room is an adorable 2-year-old girl in pigtails who is finally gaining weight. In the past six weeks, she has put on 2 pounds - in the year before that, she gained just 1. In another room is an athletic 11-year-old whose debilitating migraines caused her to miss long stretches of school, spend time in two hospital emergency rooms and go back and forth between doctors in an effort to find out why she was so sick. Down the clinic hallway is a 20-year-old college student who's exhausted all the time with unexplained stomach pains.

I'm fascinated by the number of comparisons being made between Eddie Murray's situation in Baltimore many years ago and what Miguel Tejada currently is going through. Interesting that so many of you see a link. Which players today would compare to what the Orioles received for Murray in the Dodgers trade before the 1989 season? Who are today's Ken Howell, Brian Holton and Juan Bell? Let the insults fly. Really want to get creative? Which pitcher, posing as Howell, would you flip to another team for the equivalent of Phil Bradley?

Chan Ho Park, Denny Neagle and Juan Guzman may be off the hook. The Arizona Diamondbacks' Russ Ortiz may now own the unofficial title of "Baseball's Worst Free-Agent Buy Ever," assuming, of course, Carl Pavano ever pitches again for the New York Yankees. The Diamondbacks - who've had a 2005 Orioles-esque bad week considering the fallout from the Jason Grimsley nightmare - designated Ortiz for assignment Tuesday, meaning they'll be eating what is thought to be a historic $20.45 million in salary through 2008.
