Gus Triandos, a brawny slugger who won the hearts of Orioles fans starved for someone to cheer for in the 1950s, died Thursday at his home in San Jose, Calif. He was 82. "My father died in his sleep," his daughter, Lori Luna, said. "He'd been dealing with congestive heart failure for 10 years. It was hard for him to get up. "His heart just gave out. " A catcher and four-time All Star, Triandos played with the Orioles from 1955 through 1962 and was inducted into the team's Hall of Fame in 1981.

The 2001 major league season begins today with the Baltimore Orioles at a crossroads, shifting away from a dependence on veterans and free agents and toward a more youthful cast featuring homegrown talent. But this isn't the first time in the club's long history that it has undertaken such a change. In 1960, with a group of rookie pitchers nicknamed the "Kiddie Corps" and an assortment of other new faces, the Orioles managed to challenge the New York Yankees for the American League pennant for the first time.

Compromise on stadium* I'm so tired of John Steadman's impassioned columns regarding the naming of the new stadium. His opinion is (and has been for some time) noted. Despite it, the argument that Camden Yards would remind people of Camden, N.J., is specious since it also holds that these same people now associate The Babe in the town of all his glory, not his hometown. "The House That Ruth Built," is already located in the Bronx. If only Baltimoreans didn't despise New York so much (1969 has a lot to do with it!

Willy Miranda, the Cuban-born shortstop who was perhaps the most flamboyant fielder in the history of the Orioles, died yesterday of lung cancer at Good Samaritan Hospital. He was 70.Proud of his homeland, but wary of Fidel Castro and concerned about what the Communist revolution had done to his country, Mr. Miranda had defected from Cuba with the help of a Pan American flight crew that hid him in the cockpit of a Miami-bound airplane. He began his career with the Orioles in 1955 and became a local legend even though he was a notoriously poor hitter.

AS July nears, Baltimore is preparing for its second All-Star game. The first was played 35 years ago, on July 8, 1958.To celebrate its first All-Star game, Baltimore planned a parade. The 36-car procession left from the Emerson and Lord Baltimore hotels at 9:30 a.m. It moved west on Baltimore Street to Howard Street. From Howard, the caravan moved east on Lexington Street to Charles, then finally to 33rd Street and Memorial Stadium for the 1 p.m. game.The contest was billed as another classic confrontation between two of baseball's purest hitters, Stan Musial and Ted Williams.

On two occasions, the Baltimore Orioles actually rejected chances to be the host, which is why the city waited more than three decades for tonight's return engagement.Dwight D. Eisenhower was still president when it was here for its first and only time, but he passed up the chance to throw out the first ball and instead sent his bullpen specialist, Vice President Richard Nixon.The 1958 event was a sellout, 48,829, which meant it was the sixth highest crowd count among the 24 games played before the staging of the Silver Anniversary celebration of what is romantically called baseball's midsummer classic.
