Harbor Park, the home of the Orioles' Triple-A affiliate Norfolk Tides, is currently undergoing a major facelift that should affect the way games are played there. While a new natural playing surface is being installed for the first time since the stadium opened back in 1993, the outfield fences also will be moved in 10 feet in center field and the left-center and right-center field power alleys. Harbor Park's current dimensions -- 333 feet to left, 410 to center and 318 feet to right -- don't seem imposing and are on par with Camden Yards, but it has long had the reputation of being a pitcher's ballpark.

Before he opted out of his minor league contract with the Orioles, veteran left-hander Randy Wolf unleashed a pitch that hit the suite level at Harbor Park in Norfolk. It seems like he did it on purpose. David Hall, who covers the Tides for The Virginian-Pilot, relayed a bizarre story in his piece on the Tides' 2-1 win Sunday . Hall said that in Wolf's last appearance, he warned manager Ron Johnson that something strange was going to happen. Hall wrote: During Game 1 on Saturday, he threw a pitch that sailed to the top of the grandstand and bounded off the facade of a suite.

As of 8 p.m. Friday the Orioles were still planning to fly from Sarasota, Fla., to Norfolk Va., early Saturday morning for an exhibition game against their top affiliate. It's scheduled for 3:05 p.m. at Harbor Park, the home stadium of the Norfolk Tides. Saturday's forecast for Norfolk includes a roughly a 70 to 80 percent chance of rain all day. The Tides have reportedly sold 9,000 tickets to the game, so the Orioles are going to try and get the game in. Regardless, the Orioles will have a workout Sunday at Camden Yards in preparation for Monday's season opener against the Boston Red Sox. dan.connolly@baltsun.com twitter.com/danconnollysun

WILLIAM Fleming Jr. is young, black, male and the exact opposite of the bunch of punks who harassed whites and Asians at the Movies at Harbor Park last month.Fleming is the manager at the theater complex on Market Place in downtown Baltimore. But first let's talk about the punks, whose actions were discussed on WBAL Radio and in a column in the Johns Hopkins Newsletter.Alex Gianturco, who wrote the column, obviously doesn't buy into this "blacks can't be racist" nonsense. He and about 30 white and Asian Johns Hopkins University students went to Harbor Park the night the movie "The Replacement Killers" opened.

A McDonald's restaurant near the Port Discovery Children's Museum in downtown Baltimore will close in mid-April. Thomas Maddux, a principal of retail brokerage KLNB Retail who is handling leasing at the Shops at Harbor Park at Market Place and Lombard Street, said the fast-foot restaurant decided not to renew its lease after being in the location for a little more than 10 years. Subway and 7-Eleven stores will remain in the building. Staffing firm Manpower recently agreed to move into a 1,100-square-foot space in June, Maddux said.

Only in minor league baseball could you find an event titled “Salute to Bacon Night.” On July 13, the Norfolk Tides -  the Orioles' Triple-A team - are attempting to set the record for largest BLT ever created as part of this bacon-themed night. The sandwich is going to be more than 300 feet in length, topping the record of 224 feet and 3 inches that was set last year in Missouri. The sandwich won't go to waste, though. Slices of it will be for sale throughout the game, with all proceeds going towards the Food Bank of Southeastern Virginia.

A proposal to create a family-oriented Inner Harbor park cleared a key hurdle today when Maryland's Board of Public Works voted to approve $1 million for the project. The money will be used to develop Pierce's Park, a one-acre parcel on Pier 5 named for former businessman Pierce Flanigan. Two nonprofit groups, the Waterfront Partnership of Baltimore and the Downtown Baltimore Family Alliance, have been seeking to raise $2.4 million to create the park and maintain it. The $1 million from Program Open Space, part of Maryland's Department of Natural Resources, brings the total raised so far to more than $2 million in cash and donated labor and materials.

After four years in Ottawa, the Orioles' Triple-A affiliate is moving closer to home. And to a warmer spring climate. Team officials confirmed yesterday that the Orioles have reached agreement on a player development contract with the Norfolk Tides that begins next season. The Tides have arranged a news conference for Monday at Harbor Park, which Orioles vice chairman Joe Foss and executives Mike Flanagan and Jim Duquette are expected to attend. The length of the agreement is the final detail that must be worked out. The Orioles would like a maximum four-year deal, rather than the standard two. The Tides were affiliated with the New York Mets for 38 years before their association ended this summer.

Honor Frank and BrooksI have the perfect name for the new stadium at Camden Yards. My idea is the only one I've heard that comes close to bringing forth the essence of what is so special about Orioles baseball.The name should be Robinson Stadium. I see two statues serving as a gate to the main entrance -- Brooks on one side, Frank on the other. This dual-meaning name is also a sort of metaphor for racial harmony, and the aura surrounding Robinson Stadium certainly couldn't be a bad influence on the city of Baltimore.

United Artists has shut down its nine-screen movie theater at the Inner Harbor, which opened as a showpiece more than a decade ago but had fallen into disrepair. Colorado-based United Artists Theatre Circuit Inc., which runs about 300 theaters with nearly 2,000 screens, has been closing underperforming theaters, according to the company's financial documents. The theater chain, which has been closing mostly smaller, older theaters, said it has seen sales drop as competitors built stadium seating megaplexes in some of United Artists' markets.
