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.

Jay Gibbons, Orioles outfielder What was the most memorable hit of your career and why? The one that sticks out to me is my rookie year, I hit a pinch-hit three-run home run against Greg Maddux to tie the game. ... I think it was two pitches and then - boom - tie game. Just ... knowing that I got [Maddux] that one time was a good feeling.

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. -- The Orioles signed catcher Paul Bako, 34, to a one-year contract in the offseason to compete for a job as Ramon Hernandez's backup. Bako, who was born and still lives in Louisiana, has been in the majors since 1998 and has played for 10 organizations. He was Greg Maddux's personal catcher in Atlanta, where he worked with current Orioles pitching coach Leo Mazzone.

One month down, and five to go. April is about to be a memory, and that gives baseball fans just five short months left to enjoy the season. A lot of things can happen between now and the end of September. Albert Pujols could go in a slump; the Orioles could find a stable stable of middle relievers and Tampa Bay Devil Rays prospect Delmon Young could play again in 2006. Or not. Plenty of surprising story lines have emerged in the first month, as they always do. Whether teams and players will keep the momentum going, however, is what makes baseball fun all season long.
