The day starts like any other day. Then you turn on the 6 o'clock news and the anchors are making happy talk and one chirps: "Hey, Jim Palmer just turned 50!" which causes you to do this Jackie Gleason double take and shout: "WHAT?!"Because there is no way Jim Palmer is 50 years old. No way in the world. Wasn't it just a few years ago that he was blowing fastballs past George Brett and showing off his bod on those Jockey underwear posters, the ones every college co-ed with raging hormones had taped to the wall of her dorm room?

In what has become a bitter divorce case, lawyers for Jim Palmer and his former wife were in Baltimore County Circuit Court yesterday to argue over the amount the ex-Orioles pitcher should pay her for three pieces of the couple's art collection. The pieces, purchased during Palmer's 10-year marriage to Joan H. Palmer, were supposed to be sold at auction in November with 36 paintings, sculptures and other decorative furnishings, with the proceeds to be split between them. Most of the art was sold for $32,000 at the sale, organized by a trustee appointed after Joan Palmer was granted a divorce May 17, 2000.

Many people remember Baltimore Orioles Hall of Fame pitcher Jim Palmer as the guy who modeled Jockey underwear for years. But, Palmer, 57, also has pitched everything from nutritional supplements to heartburn medicine to The Money Store, a home-equity lending business. "Jim Palmer has managed to, if not reinvent himself, at least extend his image into other categories," said Janet Wagner, associate chair of marketing at the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland.

Hall of Famer and former Orioles pitcher Jim Palmer wanted something a bit different when he was looking for new digs in the city a couple of years ago. "It's a unique apartment. It's worked well for me," Palmer said of his two-level condo in the Canal Street Malt House at the edge of Little Italy. It put him a short walk from many of his favorite restaurants and near the O's, for whom he's been a color analyst. "It's very tranquil." The loft-style condo in the reborn structure - it was built in 1866 to store malt for the city's growing brewing industry - has a modified industrial look with exposed ductwork and huge windows.

And so it draws to a close. No more "big, round numbers" to chase, no more seasons to anticipate. One more time, the reception he has come to know and many of the faces he has come to recognize during the past 21 years will touch Cal Ripken tonight at Camden Yards. Many of the younger ones attending will celebrate the end of a Hall of Fame career, while many of their elders will see it not only as the completion of a playing life, but also of a lineage. The feelings have already confronted him. Ripken says he has made peace with his decision.

For all the years that they did battle in the clubhouse or the sports pages or on the dais of some charity roast, Jim Palmer knew how Earl Weaver really felt about him. That's why he had to hold back tears Saturday when he related his favorite memory of the Earl of Baltimore - a memory made more poignant because it also involved his late teammate Mike Flanagan. It was way back, on one of those balmy spring training days in Miami, when the Orioles were always one of the best teams in baseball and Palmer was their pitching ace. Flanagan, still figuring things out in his early 20s, was sitting on the bench next to Weaver.
