SEATTLE -- Left-hander Mike Flanagan might look good in a New York Mets uniform, but he's right where he wants to be at this point in his career.Rumors have been circulating that some contending teams have expressed interest in Flanagan, who has come back from a 1990 arm problem to pitch effectively out of the Baltimore Orioles bullpen. But he says he would rather pitch in the final game at Memorial Stadium than pitch in the playoffs for some other club."That would be a real honor," Flanagan said.

Mark Harvey, the Camden Yards and M&T Bank Stadium streaker, didn't get the same deal that Morganna Roberts, a stripper and exotic dancer who was known as "The Kissing Bandit," did in 1988, when she ran onto the field at Memorial Stadium and bussed Cal Ripken Jr. as he came up to bat. Harvey, 26, a Severn truck driver dressed in a Batman cape and underwear, took to the field at Camden Yards on Opening Day in April. In September, once again dressed in his Batman outfit, he jumping onto the field during the second quarter of the Ravens's game against the New England Patriots.

Just to be able to say they were there . . .To be able to say they were in that big old pile of bricks on 33rd Street when the last out was made; that they heard the last "Thank you . . ." from Rex Barney float over the public-address system; that they cheered from the stands on Oct. 6, 1991, as major league baseball took the field for the last time at Memorial Stadium.That's why all those people were lined up outside of the ballpark allday yesterday -- through the night and into this morning, waiting for tickets to the last Oriole game at Memorial Stadium to go on sale at 9 a.m. today.

On Brooks' sideThis letter is in response to one by George W. Schruefer, which appeared in The Sun Nov. 3. He was upset about the Colts band and Johnny Unitas participating in the last game at Memorial Stadium.Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't this a farewell program to a stadium where both baseball and football were played? It's hard to forget all of the thrills John Unitas gave this city while participating in the world's largest outdoor insane asylum.What really irked me about Schruefer's letter was his referring to Brooks Robinson as a "jerk."

Preseason football games are supposed to provide teams with a chance to find and address various deficiencies. But for the Ravens, this thinking extends beyond the playing field and into the restrooms and parking lots.In response to the myriad of problems that arose nearly two weeks ago as angry fans waited for Mass Transit Administration buses to pick them up after the Ravens' first game at Memorial Stadium, some changes are in store to help make Saturday's commute less hectic.For starters, to improve the traffic flow along 33rd Street, bus-only lanes will be implemented between Loch Raven/Alameda and Memorial Stadium.

I DIDN'T EXPECT to be moved any more. Not after that final Orioles' game at Memorial Stadium nearly a decade ago, with the ghostly "Field of Dreams" procession of the old ballplayers; not after the Babe Ruth Museum put together that final tour of the old 33rd Street ballpark a year ago, when many of us walked onto the field and the band struck up the old Colts fight song to tug at our hearts; and not after Oriole Park had so firmly established its own...

The Baltimore CFLs will start three new players on offense tonight against the Calgary Stampeders, but the offensive key still figures to be the improvisational ability of quarterback Tracy Ham.Despite nine dropped passes in last week's 28-20 victory over the Toronto Argonauts, Ham threw for 260 yards and two touchdowns. The Canadian Football League's most prolific running quarterback ran only sparingly -- four times for 17 yards.Coach Don Matthews said this week it may be necessary for Ham to generate more rushing yardage.
