K.J. Hockaday, the former John Carroll infielder who set the career MIAA record for home runs with 31, has opted to play for the University of Maryland instead of sign with the Orioles. The O's drafted Hockaday in the 14th round of the MLB draft in June, but the two parties were not able to come to an agreement. "It wasn't that close at all," Hockaday said of the offer the Orioles made. He declined to divulge specifics concerning the offer. This summer, the 18-year-old is playing on Youse's Maryland Orioles, a collegiate summer team based in Linthicum, Md. The team is currently competing in the long-running AAABA Baseball Tournament, a tournament that has featured a host of future professionals over the years, including Hall-of-Famers Al Kaline and Reggie Jackson.

It seemed all too appropriate that — nearly 24 hours after learning he had been selected by the Baltimore Orioles in the 14th round of baseball's amateur draft — K.J. Hockaday stood on the sixth floor of the Warehouse at Camden Yards, overlooking a field he might one day call home. The 18-year-old John Carroll shortstop slid on a fitted, flat-brimmed Orioles hat and smiled. "It's been a dream ever since I've been 3 years old to get picked by [the] Baltimore Orioles," he said.

Rehrmann who now lobbies for a Havre de Grace quarry fighting limits on its expansion.Robert N. Hockaday Jr., former director of government and community relations, left the $75,724-a-year job in August and in January became a paid lobbyist for Arundel Quarry, which has fought residents for years over permits and health and environmental concerns.By taking that job, Hockaday is violating the local ethics code, which bars county officials and workers from lobbying on certain issues for a year after leaving office, say council members Mitch Shank of Havre de Grace and Susan B.
