The Voltaggio Brothers will appear one night only, Oct. 18, at Harry Grove Stadium in Frederick, Md. The event is not, sadly, the Voltaggio Brothers on Ice (which would be awesome!), but it is pretty cool. VOLT Night at Harry Grove Stadium is a party the Frederick natives are throwing in advance of the release of their cookbook, VOLT ink.: Recipes. Stories. Brothers (Olive Press). The book has an official release date of Oct. 25, but the Voltaggio brothers will be signing copies at the party.

FREDERICK -- The biggest series of the season arrives tomorrow night at Grove Stadium for the Frederick Keys, but manager Andy Etchebarren is downplaying its importance.Frederick will battle the Lynchburg HillCats in a four-game series, with the lead in the Carolina League's Northern Division possibly on the line. It will be the final series of the year between the two contenders, who must win the second half to make the playoffs after Wilmington captured the first-half crown."I'm more concerned about the last 12 games," said Etchebarren.

FREDERICK -- Have team. Will travel.Blame the harsh winter for the predicament that confronts the Bowie Baysox, the Double-A team that seemingly will be playing everywhere in the area except its own home until Prince George's County Stadium is ready for baseball.Construction delays because of the weather have forced the Baysox to locate their base in Frederick and to schedule early-season games at Grove Stadium here, at Judy Johnson Field in Wilmington, Del., and at the University of Maryland's Shipley Field.

FREDERICK -- Tony Beasley may play in the big leagues someday, but then again, probably not.Beasley plays hard and almost every day for the Class A Frederick Keys. But his .217 batting average hasn't exactly put him on the fast track to the Baltimore Orioles.If he doesn't make it to the big time, at least Beasley will have last night to remember. They held the Carolina League All-Star Game at Harry Grove Stadium, and the Southern Division edged the Northern Division, 6-5. Beasley was there, first as a utility infielder for the Northern Division team and after that as a 24-year-old guy who appreciated the gesture.

Frederick -- Two, three -- in the dead of summer, maybe four -- times a week, Jim Gavin climbs into the driver's seat of his weary Suburu GL10, pulls away from his North Baltimore office and heads off for an evening at the ballpark.Gavin roots for the Baltimore Orioles. He admires Cal Ripken. He has eaten a hot dog or six at Memorial Stadium.But these days, relatively few of Gavin's baseball excursions end on 33rd Street. A new team has entered his life and, frankly, he isn't sure how. They are the Frederick Keys of the Class A Carolina League.

FREDERICK -- The pre-game rumor was that the Orioles were going to try to fly Sid Fernandez into Frederick in time to pitch for the Bowie Baysox last night.Fernandez was scheduled to go for Triple-A Rochester at Scranton, Pa., but rain there was threatening to knock him out of his second rehabilitation start before his Orioles debut this weekend in Texas.The Fernandez contingency plan never was instituted and the Baysox endured nicely without him, defeating the Trenton Thunder, 5-2, in their home-away-from-home opener to remain undefeated in the Eastern League.

FREDERICK -- Eventually, the Frederick Keys may wind up as the Double-A franchise that couldn't fly in neighboring, recession-wracked Hagerstown.For now, they will have to be content with the Single-A Carolina League and immense popularity in their back yard."

FREDERICK -- The luxury of having success throughout a club's farm system is that no team at any level gets shortchanged the next season.Take the Single-A Frederick Keys. Six prominent members of Delmarva's South Atlantic League champions -- Ryan Minor, Calvin Pickering and pitchers Ryan Kohlmeier, Scott Eibey, Gabe Molina and Maximo Heredia -- bypassed the Keys and jumped directly to Double-A Bowie this year.With those players, the Keys might have been a Carolina League powerhouse. Even without them, Frederick doesn't figure to do too badly.

The strange odyssey of the Bowie Baysox has changed directions again.Originally forced into three different locations while awaiting completion of their new stadium, the Double-A Baysox will now shuffle off to a fourth home site because the third is not available May 9-12.At least three games that series against the Harrisburg Senators have been shifted from Shipley Field at University of Maryland to Navy's Bishop Field."Maryland suddenly realized that the dates fell on exam week," said Bowie owner Peter Kirk.

BOWIE -- The Bowie Baysox have been greeted warmly by Prince George's County ticket buyers, but their unfinished stadium will cost them some early-season admissions.Sales are approaching 215,000 tickets, a club official said, which is almost as high as the Baysox reached all of last season at Memorial Stadium. But season-ticket holders will be reimbursed for games that have been shifted out of Prince George's County Stadium because of weather-related construction delays.The park is not scheduled to open until May 20 at the earliest.
