The Baltimore ordinance seems clear. Drinking an alcoholic beverage "in open container" on a "street, etc., or in vehicle" is illegal, and violators are subject to fines of up to $500. A judge can throw you in jail for up to a month. That rarely happens, of course. But if you ask people who live near M&T Bank Stadium, it never happens on a day the Ravens play at home. They complain that many laws, particularly the one governing where revelers can drink beer and throw their empty cans, seems to get lost in the revelry of the spirited tailgate.

Suspended first baseman Chris Davis took batting practice with the Orioles at Camden Yards on Thursday, a day ahead of the American League Championship Series opener against the Kansas City Royals. But Davis, who has five games remaining on a 25-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball's drug policy, will not be added to the ALCS roster, manager Buck Showalter said Thursday. In order to include Davis on the roster, the Orioles would have had to play shorthanded until the suspension ends.

If you're going to go to a bar on New Year's Day, it might as well be a special place. To watch the Ravens this Sunday, consider Red House Tavern in Canton. A mainstay on the corner of Essex and Leakin streets for years, Red House didn't make its mark until April, when new owner Ron Singer, who also runs Leon's in Mount Vernon, reopened it as a mature alternative for the neighborhood. Under the new management, everything from the decor to the menu was overhauled. Red House is now handsome and classy, with lots of new beers and a terrific menu that includes french fries that taste like they came from Thrasher's in Ocean City . In many ways, it is the ideal neighborhood bar: friendly and familiar without being boring.

SARASOTA, Fla. - The Orioles' Grapefruit League game today against the Tampa Bay Rays at Ed Smith Stadium has been canceled due to weather. The game will not be made up. It's been raining all morning here in Sarasota and forecasts call for it to continue into the early evening. Fans who have paid tickets for today's game can exchange them for any remaining home spring training game, based on availability, or receive a refund. Miguel Gonzalez was slated to start today, but he won't by pushed back to start Friday.

MaGerk's in Federal Hill has a reputation. If we're being charitable, we could say it's a sports bar for young people. More accurately, it can be referred to as meat-heat central - especially upstairs. But that reputation obscures the fact that MaGerk's is, above all, a highly accommodating sports bar, with lots of flat-screens and several specials just on game days. And, it should also be noted that MaGerk's is not just for Ravens fans. They're also a proud Eagles bar. On Sundays, the sound is split in the building so that fans of each teams can hear their games.

A win for the Ravens is a win for John Giorgakis - and there have been many wins this season. The owner of the Hilltop Carry Out pizzeria and Skybox Bar and Grill in South Baltimore, Giorgakis has seen his restaurants much busier on game days this season than in seasons past. He has had to bring in an extra cook to handle the pre-game and post-game rushes at the pizzeria, and he has noticed that the crowds have been lingering longer at his bar on game days. "When the local team wins, people stay behind, people drink more, they have a good time," Giorgakis said.

Aside from the curve and why it is Ben McDonald offers up so many gopher balls, there aren't very many true mysteries in baseball. Certainly one of them is what really transpired on July 2, 1903, which just so happens to be the title of a book soon off the presses.Listen to the names of some of the main characters: Boileryard Clarke, Smilin' Al Orth, Dirty Dick Harley, Wild Conroy, Scoops Carey (a first baseman, what else?), Strawberry Bill Bernhard, Deerfoot Harry Bay, Happy Jack Chesbro, Silent Martin, Highball Wilson and "Nuff Ced" McGreevey.

What is it with the Harbaugh brothers and their pants? First, Jim Harbaugh's wife complains to a radio station that the 49ers coach wears cheapo pleated khakis from Walmart.  Now we find out that Ravens coach John Harbaugh has been wearing the same pair of black pants on the field for two years.  "For game day, he wears what the game day equipment manager puts in his office," said Kevin Byrne, Ravens senior vice president of public...

Each week, Baltimore Sun columnist Mike Preston will answer questions from readers about the Ravens . You can submit questions during every game to sports@baltimoresun.com. Here are this week's questions and answers: I thought that it was curious how John Harbaugh called his final timeout with a lot of time left on the play clock. Do you think this is because he did not trust Joe Flacco not to snap the ball on fourth down? Harbaugh was clearly telling him not to snap it and then called timeout to be sure.

Ed Reed insisted that it won't be an emotional day for him. His return to the place where he played for 11 seasons to face an organization that he won a Super Bowl with seven months ago is just "another away game right now. " But as Reed continued to talk, he offered a glimpse of the emotional tug that he will probably experience Sunday when he returns to Baltimore to face the Ravens as a member of the Houston Texans. He admits to thinking about the short drive to M&T Bank Stadium from a downtown hotel and the familiar walk past security guards that he's shaken hands with on game days for years now. But that's where things get fuzzy because his destination has never been the visitor's locker room.

Don't tell anybody in the Orioles clubhouse that there is some kind of magic in the air, because they work too hard to make it seem real. That's going to have to be our little secret. How else do you explain a team that shakes off adversity the way Chris Davis shrugs off an 86-mph fastball down and away - all the way into the left-field bleachers. The Orioles awoke on Friday morning wondering just how long second baseman Brian Roberts would be lost after suffering a painful leg injury in the ninth inning of Thursday's victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.

TAMPA, Fla. -- Each of the Orioles' first five batters facing Yankees starter Nik Turley scored before the New York left-hander could record a single out Wednesday afternoon as the O's ran out to a quick seven-run lead in a 10-7 win. A rematch of last year's American League Division Series it was not. The Orioles brought 12 players from the team's minor league minicamp to fill the later innings, and the Yankees' starting lineup included just two...

The Orioles announced a sellout for yesterday's home opener, but not before they sold roughly 1,000 tickets in the 18 hours before the game.Orioles officials had been calling the game a sellout for weeks. But by last weekend, that appeared premature.The team had held back 7,500 tickets. Those seats were put into a lottery for Orioles mini-plan holders, with winners offered the chance to buy two tickets.When some of the winners turned down their seats, the Orioles found themselves with tickets to a previously sold-out game.

There's little question that the Ray Lewis era has been all good for the Ravens and Baltimore sports fans. There's no doubt that he will go down in history as one of the greatest middle linebackers in NFL history. And, since everyone knew he was inching closer and closer to the decision to retire and spend more time watching his sons play football, his announcement to that effect could not be considered a total blind side. So, really, the only questions that remained suspended over the Under Armour Performance Center on Wednesday afternoon were the ones that nobody likes to ask at a historic and heart-strung moment such as this: Why now, exactly, and to what end?

While many Baltimoreans associate Shuckers of Fells Point with its outdoor patio and picturesque views of the harbor, it has long been a good, if underrated, place to watch a game. Like Looney's Pub in Canton, Shuckers separates itself from surrounding bars with its abundance of TVs. On Sunday, 40 flat-screen TVs will be on at a time, with most tuned (appropriately) to the Ravens' Battle of the Beltways against the Redskins. So even if you can't grab the comfortable leather couch in the back, there will still be plenty of seats and screens available.
