Former Ravens safety Ed Reed stood in the middle of a makeshift softball diamond on a field he knows well and waved his arms as fans chanted his name. Reed, who played 11 seasons with the Ravens, has long said that Baltimore will always feel like home, even after his expected Hall of Fame playing career is over. When that will be, however, remains very much a mystery. Speaking at former teammate Lardarius Webb's charity softball game Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium, Reed said that he is preparing to play in the 2014 season.

It was a battle of two eerily similar teams. Heading into Saturday's game at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, the Chesapeake Bayhawks and Ohio Machine - both 1-3 - sat at the bottom of the Major League Lacrosse standings. Both teams had struggled to put points on the scoreboard this season, as Chesapeake had netted a league-low 38 goals and Ohio scored just 45. Each team was looking to get back on track by ending a losing streak, and the Machine emerged as the team to do so, defeating Chesapeake, 15-11, to improve to 2-3 and pick up its first win since the season opener April 26. It was the first time Ohio beat the Bayhawks (1-4)

New Orioles catcher Nick Hundley arrived at Camden Yards on Sunday morning, happy to be a part of a contending club. Hundley, who was acquired from the San Diego Padres on Saturday in exchange for left-handed reliever Troy Patton , will play an important role with his new team. Starting catcher Matt Wieters remains on the disabled list with a right elbow strain, and his status for the rest of the season is still uncertain. "I didn't know where I was going, but if there was one place I wanted to be, it was here," Hundley said.

The Baltimore & Maryland Workers Assembly will host a protest Thursday calling for higher wages for fast food workers, one of dozens happening around the world. The groups backing the effort, which calls for a $15 wage, say protests and strikes will occur in more than 150 cities in the U.S. and 33 countries. Similar one-day events, bankrolled largely by the Service Employees International Union and promoted by community groups, have been staged for more than a year. State lawmakers last month passed a law to increase the minimum wage in stages, reaching $10.10 per hour by 2018.

"I felt great,” Davis said. “I felt really good the last three days. That's when we started doing a lot of stuff.
