FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- It's not until he's addressed topics like West Palm Beach real estate, Nolan Ryan's personal-services contract and why no one questions Frank Robinson's 49 home runs the way they wonder about Brady Anderson's 50 home runs that Jim Palmer gets really Jim Palmer-esque. Why did he speak out on steroids and name an ex-Oriole when all he was trying to do was illustrate how baseball's credibility is out the window the way the union refuses to institute a stiffer drug-testing policy?

It's hard to pinpoint one pivotal moment in the Orioles' 1983 postseason run, because so many players contributed. But in conversations with members of the team, one name came up over and over. Mike Boddicker, they said, put them over the top. Boddicker had already filled in brilliantly for Jim Palmer and Mike Flanagan by the time the Orioles reached their American League Championship Series showdown with the Chicago White Sox. But he had never faced a situation as pressurized as the one that greeted him in Game 2. In the opener of that best-of-five series, La Marr Hoyt shut down the Orioles for a 2-1 victory over Scott McGregor.

After listening to eight days of testimony detailing a nasty, longstanding skirmish in Little Italy, Baltimore jurors began deliberating last night about whether to award $1 million in damages to the president of the neighborhood association. Plaintiff Roberto Marsili, president of the Little Italy Community Organization, sued community residents Rosa Aquia and her daughter Gia Blatterman for malicious prosecution and abuse of process, saying they brought an erroneous harassment suit and other legal action against him. The case, heard in Baltimore Circuit Court, was punctuated by heated testimony, accusations, name-calling and an appearance by Orioles Hall of Fame pitcher Jim Palmer.

Jim Palmer is in camp. No, he's not trying to make a comeback. Jamie Walker has been cleared to do everything except run. I noticed that he flinched while walking toward the first base line after stretching, and Ramon Hernandez's throw from the plate to first whizzed past him. It wasn't that close, but it got Walker's attention. Yesterday's drills on the back fields involved delayed double steals, and how to prevent the runner on third from scoring as the initial throw goes to second - either from the pitcher or catcher.

Jim Palmer is being honored with his sculpture today. Several notables in attendance, none bigger than Brooks Robinson - who has missed the first two celebrations (Earl Weaver and Frank Robinson) due to health reasons. Brooks had his own ceremony pushed back to September. But he is here and looks good. Brooks received a huge ovation from the crowd. Also here are Hall-of-Famers Eddie Murray and Cal Ripken Jr. and Baltimore native Al Kaline. Frank Robinson, who lives in California, is the only Oriole in the Hall-of-Fame who didn't make it. Former Oriole Ken Singleton was the first speaker.

For $20, the Baltimore Orioles let fans wear an official jersey of a favorite player and have their pictures taken on the field yesterday. But to many of the 100 or so people who turned out for the charity fund-raiser, it was worth $20 just to walk out on the field at Memorial Stadium."

Eddie Murray will be the 11th modern Oriole in the Hall of Fame, joining Luis Aparicio, Reggie Jackson, George Kell, Lee MacPhail, Jim Palmer, Robin Roberts, Brooks Robinson, Frank Robinson, Earl Weaver and Hoyt Wilhelm. A capsule look at the four who made their biggest impact as Orioles: Brooks Robinson Robinson spent 23 seasons with the Orioles. He won the AL Most Valuable Player Award in 1964 and shares the record (with former pitcher Jim Kaat) for most Gold Gloves with 16. His election to baseball's Hall of Fame was cemented with his performance against the Cincinnati Reds in the 1970 World Series, when he was named MVP and earned the nickname "Hoover" (as in vacuum cleaners)

HTS unfairTo date, the only justification offered by HTS for the blindsiding of local hero John Lowenstein is his time removed from the game. Excuse us? Today's owners seem hellbent on destroying the traditions that are baseball, but the game has not really changed that radically since Dr. Longball last made a house call to 33rd Street.HTS has said that subscriber input will not affect its decision. Then again, Paul Tagliabue told us to build a museum because the NFL game would never again be played here.
