Maybe someday, Peyton and The Glove will go down with some of more famous player-inanimate object partnerships in NFL history. Johnny Unitas and the hightops. Lester Hayes and stickum. Jim McMahon and the headband. Conrad Dobler and the bite. Have you seen Manning's stats in the two games since he started wearing The Glove? They've never been better. Peyton and The Glove. "I was surprised to see it," Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey said. "Because you just don't see quarterbacks wear gloves.

With two passionate fist pumps Saturday evening, Kansas City Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain punctuated an evening when he swung nearly every big moment in a tense 4-hour, 17-minute game in his team's direction. The first celebration came after his final running catch of the night kept the game tied. The second, two innings later, came after his fourth hit of the night helped ensure his Royals would head back to Kansas City with a 6-4 win and a two-game lead in the American League Championship Series.

If you caught the highlights from the Orioles' loss to the Athletics on Wednesday afternoon, you probably grimaced as you watched Adam Jones let a ball hit by Brandon Allen bounce over his head in centerfield. He then kicked the ball around for a second or two before chucking it into the infield as Allen crossed home plate. Simply put, Jones looked like Felix Pie out there. But had he borrowed the glove of Yankees pitcher Luis Ayala, embarrassment could have been avoided.

After the pain of Towson cutting its men's soccer program in March 2013 had subsided, Kay Banjo was faced with a life-changing decision: He could go pro and try out for Major League Soccer or finish his undergraduate degree and then use his final year of eligibility elsewhere. It was a no-brainer. "My dad has always been big on education, and I know I'm not going to play soccer my whole life, and I need to have something to fall back on," Banjo said. "I had one more semester to graduate.

When a reporter began a question after Friday's game asking Orioles first baseman Mark Reynolds what it was like to help his team win with his glove and his bat, Reynolds interrupted the inquiry to offer some self-deprecating humor. "First person that's ever said that," Reynolds said, biting on the notion that his actually was actually being recognized. Reynolds played a major part in the Orioles' 6-1 win over the Yankees Friday night. His two-run homer off Hiroki Kuroda in the second inning was a towering blast that silenced the home crowd as it landed in the stadium's second deck.

For Jim Carey, being a 20-year-old rookie called up to play goal for the then-struggling Washington Capitals in the NHL wasn't pressure.Pressure, Carey said, is when you're a 7-year-old goaltender and you're trying out for one of the most successful youth teams in Boston. Pressure is when it's down to you and one other kid and the coach says, "Fastest glove wins.""St. Moritz was a big team . . . and I was thinking all these guys are great," Carey said. "I'm trying out and I'm thinking, 'This team is from the whole city of Boston, not just my little town team in Weymouth.

You might have forgotten the year Nate McLouth won a gold glove. It was the same year he led the National League in doubles. Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette apparently didn't, and his team wouldn't likely be chasing the American League East lead if he didn't take a waiver on the 30-year-old veteran outfielder. Much has been made about McLouth and how quickly he became a part of the Orioles' everyday lineup -- and expecially how he suddenly became a regular option in the No. 3 spot in the batting order.

TORONTO - Before the fifth inning of the Orioles' 9-3 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday, umpires inspected right-hander Miguel Gonzalez's glove for a foreign substance at the request of Toronto manager John Gibbons. They found nothing, but Gibbons said after the game they noticed something peculiar when watching Gonzalez on video.  “We saw on the video it looked like he was going into his glove and rubbing his fingers going directly to the ball,” Gibbons said. “I know guys use stuff to get a better grip, but if you go directly to the ball ... we thought we'd take a look.

Objective: Help yourself to fitness for baseball and softball this way: * Get players in groups of four or five. * Tell them to put their gloves in the outfield about 25 feet away from their group. * Each player runs to his or her glove with a ball, places the ball on the glove, and runs back to the start position. * The player then runs to their gloves, gets ball and returns to the start position. * The winner gets out of doing laps at the end of practice.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he is glad that he didn't make a bigger fuss over what he thought was a bad call in the club's 6-4 win over the Texas Rangers on Wednesday at Camden Yards. Home plate umpire Toby Basner ruled that Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph interfered with the Rangers' Elvis Andrus during an attempted hit-and-run in the third inning, awarding Andrus first base and advancing Shin-Soo Choo into scoring position. Basner saw Joseph's glove affect Andrus' haphazard swing as he tried to make contact with a high-and-inside pitch.

HOUSTON -- Orioles manager Buck Showalter wasn't searching for excuses after the Orioles' 3-1 loss to the Houston Astros on Thursday night . He made it clear that the replay challenge he lost on a close play at the plate wasn't the reason his team lost. But that didn't mean he wasn't frustrated by it. Showalter was convinced that right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez tagged Jason Castro's left leg before he touched home plate following a wild pitch.  Showalter challenged the call and after a four-minute, 25-second review, the call stood, meaning there wasn't conclusive evidence to overturn it. “He's out,” Showalter said.

HOUSTON -- Orioles catcher Matt Wieters isn't looking beyond Friday, when he is scheduled to throw for the first time in more than three weeks, but he's still encouraged by the progress with his right elbow. "It's gotten a lot better over the last few days, which is what we were waiting on," Wieters said Thursday. "Now it's just a matter of going through the throwing progression and hopefully everything keeps getting better. "Every movement that gets me back towards getting on the field is good.

The 39-year-old Jeter received a standing ovation in his first at bat and a rousing reception from the home crowd during pregame introductions. He also received praise from Showalter, who was Jeter's first big league manager when Jeter debuted with the Yankees in 1995. "He's somebody who baseball should be proud of," Showalter said.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles third baseman Manny Machado has agreed to a $519,000 contract renewal for 2014 -- slightly above this year's league minimum of $500,000 -- but the 21-year-old is somewhat disappointed with the figure. Machado will also receive an additional $100,000 bonus for winning the 2013 Platinum Glove Award as the American League's best defender. “It is disappointing, but at the end of the day, you just have to go out and play,” said Machado, who made $495,000 last season and received a $25,000 bonus for making his first All-Star team. Similarly, the Platinum Glove bonus will not be calculated as part of his 2014 base salary.

It was a fine Saturday morning when the boy, who is nearly 4, came to me with the gloves and a ball and asked if we could play catch.Naturally, I said yes, because that's the kind of guy I am, and because throwing a baseball has always been a wonderful way for fathers and sons to bond, to learn about one another, and so on.The boy's first throw caught me squarely in the groin.All I remember is a white-hot flash of pain and then I was crashing to the pavement in what seemed like a series of painstaking, elaborate movements.

Except one.The bronze Babe, unveiled last month at the northern Eutaw Street entrance of Oriole Park, is leaning on a bat and clutching on his hip a right-handed fielder's glove.
