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.

CHICAGO -- Watching Nick Markakis patrol right field for the past nine seasons, Orioles fans have grown accustomed to watching him make tough defensive plays look routine. But there was no questioning the difficulty factor of the potentially game-saving catch that he made Monday night against the Chicago White Sox. Markakis took away a go-ahead homer from Conor Gillaspie in the seventh inning, making a leaping grab while crashing into the right-field fence. The Orioles offense responded to the momentum-grabbing play by opening up a close game for an 8-2 win over the White Sox in front of an announced 16,686 at U.S. Cellular Field.

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...

The idyllic scene Amanda Schmidt envisions on a recent Monday afternoon sounds less like a music festival and more like a serene, anything-goes camping trip with hundreds of open-minded friends, both new and old. She sees attendees playing basketball and taking dips in the pool, while others watch a stand-up comedian before heading to the woods to observe art installations. She pictures viewers enthralled by a theater performance in a barn, as many others watch Baltimore musicians like Dan Deacon, Matmos and other acts perform on multiple stages.

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.

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.

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.

Ravens inside linebacker Josh Bynes is entering his fourth season the most secure he's ever been in his standing on the team. Coach John Harbaugh said he considers the rugged linebacker a quality NFL starter. Defensive coordinator Dean Pees said he has "no qualms" playing Bynes in the middle of the team's defense. But having ended previous training camps jobless and another bedridden with a broken back, Bynes hasn't yet shed the stigma or motivation that comes with being an undrafted player who spent years on the Ravens' roster bubble.

Ravens backup cornerback Chykie Brown was briefly kicked out of practice Saturday morning by coach John Harbaugh after Brown booted the football in frustration following a play. Brown had a potential interception glance off his hands when he kicked the football down the field, angering Harbaugh since that would have drawn a penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct if this had been a game. "Chykie, get off the field," Harbaugh said loudly. "Get off the field. " Brown immediately complied and ran inside to the Ravens' training complex before returning to practice a short time later in full uniform.

 For more than 60 years with hardly a break, the Republican Partyhas chosen as its standard-bearer someone who has been able to claim it's his turn. Not since military hero Dwight D. Eisenhower defeated Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio, whose supporters so contended in 1952, has a conspicuous outsider run away with the prize. Patience nearly always has been rewarded for party stalwarts, whether it was Richard Nixon in 1960, Barry Goldwater in 1964, Nixon again in 1968, Gerald Ford in 1976, Ronald Reagan in 1980, the senior George Bush in 1988, Bob Dole in 1996, the junior George Bushin 2000, John McCain in 2008 or Mitt Romney in 2012.

The police chief in Annapolis on Monday sought to counter complaints about officers photographing youths. Rumors spread over the weekend on social media and elsewhere that officers were photographing African-American children in the city, and several people attended Monday night's Annapolis City Council meeting to voice concerns. Annapolis Police Chief Michael Pristoop said officers and detectives have been investigating recent robberies in which two men were jumped by a group of African-American juveniles in the Clay Street area.

There was a time not so long ago when the opening of Ravens training camp was a good excuse for local fans to turn the page halfway through another disappointing baseball season, but times have changed. When the Ravens begin workouts this week, they will be the ones trying to turn the page on a disappointing 2013 season and an embarrassing offseason everyone around the Under Armour Performance Center would like to forget. Nobody wants to lead the league in tawdry off-the-field incidents - certainly not Ravens coach John Harbaugh, who has little patience for conduct that casts any shadow over the football operation.

As someone who runs along the Inner Harbor frequently, it's easy to recall the many times walkers would stop to see the trapeze school participants and teachers performing there a decade ago. It was a natural draw, especially in the evening with lights beaming on the net-surrounded spot. The high cost of the attraction probably did it in. But it is with some dismay that I read about plans regarding Rash Field that would take away the constant attraction that is the beach volleyball courts ( "City looks at another go-round at Rash Field," July 11)

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.

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.

When Mike Leiter practices archery at the Harford Bowmen club at Susquehanna State Park, it might not appear he is having fun. Leiter, one of the most successful archers in the country, is a quiet person, especially when practicing. Each shot, even when he's not at the club and is just practicing at his home in Fallston, is a slow process. He draws the bow back deliberately and takes several seconds to line up his shot. After the release, Leiter's stoic face doesn't change, even if he knows it was a bull's-eye.

It's a small property tied to the fate of a much bigger one. The Inner Harbor merry-go-round, which has struggled for years, sits next to Rash Field, a roughly 7-acre expanse of volleyball pits and muddy field ringed by gray concrete, that city and civic leaders have long dreamed of turning into a bigger, better attraction. The basic plan for the field - to build an underground parking garage and place a park on top - was proposed by a team hired by the city in 1994. It has reappeared in similar guises at least four times since, racking up hundreds of thousands dollars in planning fees, before retreating each time for lack of funding and support.
