FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Faced with a financial crisis that is threatening to close the Orioles' spring training facility, Fort Lauderdale city commissioners have decided to pursue a 15-year lease that would bind the team to the municipal stadium, which has been its spring home since 1996. The Orioles' lease expires April 30, and they've been forced to consider other options for 2005 and beyond. They met with officials in Winter Haven, Fla., two months ago to discuss the possible construction of a dual complex with the Cleveland Indians, and have been involved in negotiations with West Palm Beach on a similar project for the past few years.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Until recently, Brian Roberts' comeback played out almost entirely outside the public eye, away from the curious gaze of many of his teammates and the critical glare of reporters, looking for proof that the Orioles second baseman is ready to play in a baseball game again. At first, he took batting practice on a back field at Fort Lauderdale Stadium, where no fans are allowed and where planes taking off nearby drown out any sounds associated with baseball. He has followed hitting coach Terry Crowley, both of them ducking into the batting cage adjacent to the main field, a thick netting obscuring the diminutive All-Star swinging at soft-toss pitches inside.
