As the Rev. John O'Brien stands above the field where Babe Ruth learned to play baseball, he excitedly explains the role of the American baseball legend in the history of Cardinal Gibbons School. "This is the house that built Ruth," O'Brien said with a smile. When George Herman "Babe" Ruth attended, Gibbons was known as St. Mary's Industrial School. On July 1, O'Brien became principal of Cardinal Gibbons, a 500-student all-boys Catholic school with grades six through 12. The 42-year-old Towson native has ambitious goals for the next few years at the Southwest Baltimore institution that has experienced a 50 percent enrollment decline in the past 20 years and a lack of funding.

When Gail and John O'Brien were engaged to be married back in 1985, their dream house was already rising out of the ground about 110 miles from where it had been originally built.If that causes a sudden double take, it really shouldn't.The O'Brien home, set in a dense, 15-acre grove of mature trees on the quietly ritzy Wye Cove peninsula, is a reincarnation of a Princeton, N.J., barn -- bought stripped down to the rafters and hauled to Maryland tidewater.The house, all 3,000 square feet of it, was re-created by installing the original barn timbers in exactly the same position they occupied when first put up. "They cost us $55,000," says Gail O'Brien of the huge, rough-hewn rafters and supports that show the ax and adz marks of the late Federal era.The dedication came in October of 1985 when the home officially opened for the O'Briens' wedding reception.
