KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Manager Johnny Oates was saying just the other day that catcher Chris Hoiles would remain the club's No. 8 hitter even if he remains the league's No. 1 hitter. But the collision that took Randy Milligan and Bill Ripken out of action has forced him to juggle the lineup.Hoiles, who was still atop the league hitting ranks when he woke up yesterday, batted fifth last night in the Orioles' revamped batting order."I said that Chris would remain in the eighth spot unless there was a need to move him," Oates said yesterday.

CHICAGO -- Five hours before the first pitch last night at Comiskey Park, the sound of a bat meeting a baseball echoed through a corridor beneath the stands. Crack. Crack. Crack. The sound of Chris Hoiles still trying to get his season started. On the sixth day of July.Alone in a fluorescent-lighted batting cage, dressed in a black jersey and gray pants, Hoiles swung at pitches delivered by a machine, then hit some balls off a batting tee. His teammates still weren't due at the park for another hour when he finished his extra session of batting practice.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Shortstop Cal Ripken hasn't been the only Iron Man up the middle for the Orioles this season.Catcher Chris Hoiles has started all but two of the team's 33 games. After catching six innings last night against the Minnesota Twins at the Metrodome, he had caught 272 of the team's 294 inings.The Orioles play a day game today after a night game, but manager Johnny Oates said he will not use that as an opportunity to rest Hoiles and give Jeff Tackett some work."When you can go five weeks needing a fifth starter only three times, that tells you you have a lot of days off," Oates said.

Chris Hoiles took batting practice for the second straight time last night and could be ready to return to the lineup tomorrow night."He may be ready by the first of the week," manager Johnny Oates said when asked to assess Hoiles' availability. "He's swinging the bat without any difficulty, but throwing could be a little more of a problem."Hoiles did not report any soreness after Friday night's workout, but wouldn't venture a guess as to when he would return. He hasn't played since Aug. 2, when he strained a muscle in his back while swinging in a game against the Milwaukee Brewers.

It has been a trying season for catcher Chris Hoiles.And his troubles may or may not have ended last night.Hoiles pulled up rounding first base on what should have been a second-inning double.Instead, Hoiles left the game with what was believed to be a pulled left hamstring. He's hoping, though, that it was just a heat-induced cramp."It didn't feel like a pull," Hoiles said. "It doesn't feel like a pull now, either. Then, with hamstrings, you never know."Team doctors will not know until they examine Hoiles today whether it was a cramp or the same injury that put third baseman Jeff Manto on the 15-day disabled list.

I'll never forget the big old buck with a hairy eyeball that used to stare down at me from above the mantel at my great-uncle Walter's fishing and hunting cabin. Or the eggs fried in 30-weight oil and coffee from the Mister Mud Machine that jump-started every morning. Or the copperhead snakes that used to hide in the outhouse or under the rickety dock that hung out over the Susquehanna River. Good thing the bats kept them from getting too comfortable. Memories. I have them. You have them.

The Orioles inducted Doug DeCinces, a power-hitting third baseman who succeeded Brooks Robinson, and Chris Hoiles, a tough catcher who helped spearhead the club's last run of excellence, into the organization's Hall of Fame in a ceremony before yesterday's game. The team also honored deceased trainers Ralph Salvon and Eddie Weidner with the Herb Armstrong Award for contributions from non-uniformed personnel. Hoiles said he enjoyed going into the Hall with DeCinces. "It's really kind of special because we've got two generations and two different stadiums and really, two different teams," he said.

This weekend, Orioles catcher Chris Hoiles bypassed treatment on his right shoulder for the first time since the first week of spring training. No need -- his arm's improved. He can feel the difference.And he can see the difference. Hoiles threw out two would-be base stealers yesterday, good, low throws, right to the bag, and he agreed it was the best he's thrown all year."This is definitely the best day I've had, as far as strength and accuracy," said Hoiles, who had thrown out six of 27 runners before yesterday.

MILWAUKEE -- Catcher Chris Hoiles didn't get hurt Wednesday night in Boston, but he's still a little sore at Red Sox pitcher Roger Clemens for hitting him on the left arm with a pitch in the second inning.Clemens plunked Hoiles with a runner at third and nobody out, perhaps because the Orioles catcher had homered in each of the first two games of the series. Hoiles glared out at the mound, but walked slowly to first base."I thought it was intentional," said Hoiles, who reached base nine times in 13 plate appearances during the Red Sox series.

Former third baseman Doug DeCinces and catcher Chris Hoiles will be inducted into the Orioles' Hall of Fame before the Aug. 26 game against Tampa Bay. Trainers Eddie Weidner and Ralph Salvon will be honored posthumously as recipients of the Herb Armstrong Award for non-uniformed personnel. DeCinces played with the Orioles from 1973 to 1981. He took over for Brooks Robinson in 1976 -- tough gig -- and didn't really win over fans until hitting a game-winning home run on June 22, 1979 at Memorial Stadium that is widely credited with starting Orioles Magic.
