To the attentive eye, each moment of the year has its own beauty, and in the same field, it beholds, every hour, a picture which was never seen before, and which shall never be seen again.Ralph Waldo Emerson TUCKED BETWEEN a tangled woods on one side and an old stone farmhouse and outbuildings on the other, the field lay -- new green in the spring deepening to a cool evergreen in summer as it grew tall with corn. Behind the field stretched a wooded ridge; before it wound a narrow country road.

There is still a winter chill in the air, and the American League East race has already gotten hot and heavy. The Orioles and Boston Red Sox are embroiled in an intense four-game series at Fenway Park that is building toward Monday's emotional crescendo. The Tampa Bay Rays spent Friday and Saturday pounding some of the starch out of the first-place New York Yankees before losing in 12 innings Sunday for a split in their four-game series. By most accounts, it's going to be like this all season.

UPDATED WITH DETAILS OF CHAN'S ARREST Two men were sentenced last week for jumping onto the field in Oriole Park in separate incidents, though only one is likely to have a conviction on his record a year from now. Peter Chan, identified in court records as a 23-year-old from Towson, was found guilty of trespassing Friday in Baltimore's district court.  He was given a 90-day suspended jail sentenced and ordered to pay a $500 fine and...

Defense has been a staple of the Orioles' success the past two seasons, and the team enters this afternoon's game against the Boston Red Sox leading the major leagues with a .995 fielding percentage. The Orioles have made just three errors this season, all of them at third base by players filling in for Platinum Glove winner Manny Machado. They also haven't made an error in seven road games this season. Last year's team set a major league record for fewest errors in a 162-game season (54)

Initially, I had problems with the Ravens running a fake field goal and Sam Koch scoring a touchdown. The score was already 41-17 with 9:20 left in the third quarter, and the Oakland Raiders had no chance of catching up. But once Jacoby Jones ran 105 yards on a kickoff return for a touchdown with 12:34 left in the game, I felt no compassion for Oakland. At that point, the Ravens had to virtually take a knee to not score in the game. On Jones' run, the lead blocker ran through the hole untouched and didn't block anyone.

First baseman Chris Davis was not in the starting lineup on Tuesday with lefty CC Sabathia on the mound. That alone probably is enough to sit the slugging left-hander, who is 0-for-2 with two strikeouts against Sabathia. But Davis has also been in a deep slump. Counting his 0-for-8 performance in Boston on May 6 - the 17-inning game in which he picked up a win by throwing two scoreless innings - Davis has just three hits in his past 28 at-bats, dropping his average from .326 to .274.

There was no need to ask Baltimore Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff how missing a potential game-tying field goal Sunday in the final seconds against New England with a Super Bowl trip on the line gnawed at him. The disappointment already resonated -- a mix of remorse and resolve -- in his voice. "The timing seemed a little bit off. Just the dynamics of the play," said Cundiff, in hushed tones, during a telephone interview with The Des Moines Register after a 23-20 loss to the Patriots in the AFC championship game.

One of the criticisms aimed at the Ravens' coaching staff was the decision to settle for a Billy Cundiff 29-yard field goal with 6:58 remaining in the fourth quarter rather than go for it on fourth down-and-goal from the Tennessee Titans' 11-yard line. Three points are always better than zero points, but since the Ravens were still trailing, 23-13, at that point, what was the harm in going for a touchdown and possibly cutting the deficit to less than a touchdown? Coach John Harbaugh gave it a go during his post-game conference Monday at the team's training facility in Owings Mills.

No question the fifth and sixth innings were a mess Monday night at Camden Yards due to a continual and heavy rain. And surely the Los Angeles Angels would have preferred if the game had been stopped after they scored a run in the top of the sixth. The Orioles scored twice in the bottom of the sixth as the field conditions worsened. Those two runs proved to be the difference in a 4-3 Orioles victory that included a two-hour and 14-minute rain delay. Here are post-game interviews with umpiring crew chief Joe West, Orioles manager Buck Showalter and Angels manager Mike Scioscia.

Talk all you want about the new era of parity in college lacrosse, there's still nothing to compare with the rivalry that put the "old" in old-school. The 111th meeting between Maryland and Johns Hopkins drew a capacity-plus homecoming crowd to Homewood Field for a game that the No. 9 Blue Jays sorely needed to win to ensure that they would not be left out of the NCAA tournament for the second year in a row. The fifth-ranked Terps did not need it nearly as much, and the case could probably be made that their urgency deficit was evident until the final minutes of an 11-6 Hopkins victory on a simply glorious spring afternoon.

From metal detectors to ID checks, visitors entering agency headquarters and large federal facilities in and around the nation's capital are subjected to intense security - so much so that they're often warned to leave extra time to get through the screening. But federal investigators and unions are raising concerns about safety in small field offices scattered across the country, where federal employees at the IRS, Social Security Administration and other agencies are more likely to interact with the public.

This time a week ago, Cornell was the lone undefeated team in Division I and was No. 2 in the nation. Consecutive 14-9 losses at home to Harvard and Syracuse have altered its national standing dramatically, but coach Matt Kerwick and his players say the team's psyche remains undamaged. "I'm not concerned," Kerwick said. "We have great leadership in that locker room. Two games don't determine a season. We're not worried about that at all. Confidence is a very important part of lacrosse, probably more so than any sport I've been around, and we have to make sure we continue to stay confident because we have all the faith in the world in this team and I don't second-guess it at all. " "Our ticket's the Ivy League," defenseman Tom Freshour said after Tuesday's loss to the Orange.

NEW YORK -- Orioles center fielder Adam Jones made headlines for his frank comments about fans who storm onto the field during games , as happened in the eighth inning Tuesday afternoon at Yankee Stadium. Jones' comments have become a national story, prompting discussion on player safety in the game. Meanwhile, Major League Baseball is reviewing Jones' comments, an MLB spokesperson told The Baltimore Sun this afternoon. That's not the only place Jones has been seen over the past 24 hours.

The dearth of women and certain minorities in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields represents a huge problem within this country and is a crisis often repeated in the news today. These stories often provide the same problem and, more often than not, suggest the same solution: that the education system must improve to better provide STEM skills to minorities before college. I am not in disagreement with this view; however, as an African American child growing up in Detroit, I developed a love and skill for science more from programs within the community rather than those within the school system.

Katrina Marinelli swung for the fences and got all ball. "Nice hit," said a teammate. It wasn't really a hit. The 12-year-old Roland Park girl was hitting a softball off a tee into a net during practice, as the Rams, a newly formed girls softball team at Roland Park Elementary/Middle School, prepared for an April 8 away game against Dumbarton Middle School in Rodgers Forge. Coaches and parents who organized the team say it's the first girls softball team at the school in many years, if not ever, and a rarity in the budget-conscious Baltimore Public School System, where middle school softball is considered a luxury.

Every point for Maryland this season is as valuable as a precious metal. The offense, weakened by injuries and led by a new freshman quarterback, is clearly a work in progress. It just doesn't score that often and can't afford to waste red-zone opportunities. That's why everyone will understand the decision revealed Sunday to use a new field-goal kicker - freshman Brendan Magistro - for the shorter attempts. Maryland has lost two close games in a row -- and Brad Craddock has missed kicks of shorter than 40 yards in both of them.

Not even the end of the Ravens' 31-30 win against the New England Patriots Sunday night could escape controversy. Officials ruled that rookie kicker Justin Tucker's 27-yard field was good although the ball appeared to be very close to flying outside the right upright. Immediately after the kick, Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork berated officials and coach Bill Belichick placed his hand on another official just prior to his post-game handshake with Ravens coach John Harbaugh.
