While the National Baseball Hall of Fame was announcing Wednesday that three players in their first year of eligibility - pitchers Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine and slugger Frank Thomas - had been elected by the writers' association in the same year for the first time in 15 years, Rafael Palmeiro was in his Texas home putting away Christmas decorations. The former Orioles slugger didn't realize the announcement had been made until he noticed several missed phone calls. He turned on the TV and learned he had received only 25 votes - half of what he garnered last year - for a total of 4.4 percent, which dropped him from the Baseball Writers' Association of America ballot in his fourth year of eligibility.

The Frank Thomas Sawmill has operated in Fallston since 1933, when it was purchased for $150 during the Great Depression. The sawmill is what is known as a specialty mill, cutting wood for custom jobs such as fireplace mantels, hardwood flooring, fence boards, barn siding, bridge flooring and blocking. Frank Thomas Jr. sharpens each of the 44 razor-sharp teeth on the 56-inch steel saw blade every day to keep the cuts clean and straight. Years ago, there were as many as a dozen sawmills in the area; now only two are left in Harford County.

Andre Raines has the look of a 10-year-old boy who's got virtually all the things a 10-year-old boy could want, namely a Nintendo Game Boy and a comic book.And, with the friendship of Frank Thomas, the Chicago White Sox's slugging first baseman, young Andre's wish list is complete, for in Thomas, he has the perfect Game Boy playmate and role model.All of this would be a bit off-putting to Andre's father, Tim, a White Sox outfielder and Thomas' teammate, if he didn't have nerves of steel.Still, it is Frank Thomas' face and not Tim Raines' on the cover of the comic book that Andre keeps in his father's locker.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- When the Orioles beat the Los Angeles Angels on Friday to start their 10-game road trip, they were three games over .500 and just a game out of first place in the American League East. The fall has been quick, and at times brutal. A short pre-game meeting, called by manager Dave Trembley, didn't stem the tide last night, and the Orioles are below .500 for the first time since losing Opening Day. Starter Brian Burres was not sharp and the Orioles' offense stayed in its deep slumber in a 4-2 loss to the Oakland Athletics before an announced 11,492 at McAfee Coliseum.

News item: The other shoe finally dropped at the Naval Academy when football coach Paul Johnson announced Friday he will replace Chan Gailey at Georgia Tech. My take: Certainly, it's a painful loss for Navy, but Johnson has more than earned the opportunity to pursue a BCS title with a major program. Related news item: Navy announced yesterday that assistant head coach Ken Niumatalolo has been hired to replace Johnson. My take: That's great, but I'm a little worried about Navy radio broadcaster Bob Socci, whose head might explode if Niumatalolo and quarterback Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada get into an argument on the sideline next season.

Odd double steal The Orioles scored a run in the fifth inning in a most unusual manner. With Corey Patterson on third base, Brian Roberts broke too soon for second and got caught in a rundown after Toronto starter Dustin McGowan stepped off the rubber. Roberts kept glancing at Patterson while trying to stay alive, waiting for him to break for home. It finally happened as shortstop Royce Clayton, who also was checking Roberts, flipped the ball to McGowan covering first. McGowan's throw to the plate sailed over catcher Jason Phillips' head, and Patterson scored.

Jay Payton arrived at Camden Yards yesterday to find his name at the top of the Orioles' lineup. He was not, to say the least, an obvious choice for the leadoff role, not after spending the first three weeks of the new season on the disabled list with a strained hamstring. Not against a tough left-hander when he hadn't had a single regular-season at-bat. "It was a little bit of a shock," Payton said. Manager Sam Perlozzo obviously thought it made sense. Everyday leadoff man Brian Roberts was under the weather all weekend, and Payton had good matchup numbers against Toronto Blue Jays starter Gustavo Chacin.

DUNEDIN, Fla. -- He stands alongside the right-field railing, in front of a surging mass of autograph seekers that holds baseballs, bats and one "Big Hurt" poster. Frank Thomas, the Toronto Blue Jays' most significant offseason acquisition, is chatting up his new fans when one tries to guess his weight at 240 pounds. "Puh-leeze," Thomas says in mock dissatisfaction. "What, 260?" the fan asks. "Try closer to 280," Thomas says as the guy lets out a whistle. "I still work out all the time.

The Oakland Athletics have a tradition during spring training. Each day, a new player is introduced, and for a few minutes there's an impromptu question-and-answer session. Normally, it lasts 10 minutes. February's introduction of A's designated hitter Frank Thomas took about 45 minutes. To be fair, it was raining that morning, so there was no rush to leave the clubhouse. But that's not the main reason the young A's stayed. "A lot of players wanted to get into his mind," said manager Ken Macha.
