OXFORD, Ohio - With a blinding sun and a mostly empty Yager Stadium at his back, Ravens coach John Harbaugh peered into a crowd that contained so many people he wanted to thank. To his right were his parents, wife and daughter, along with other members of his extended family. To his left were about 30 of his former teammates at Miami University (Ohio). Straight ahead were a couple of rows of football fans, many either wearing Miami red or Ravens purple. It was exactly how Harbaugh wanted to commemorate a memorable and rewarding weekend.

The Laurel City Council approved an ordinance this week that makes the city part of the new Regional Transit Agency aimed at replacing nonprofit Central Maryland Regional Transit. The council voted unanimously to join the new agency, spearheaded by Howard County government, making them the third government entity, behind Howard and Anne Arundel County, to leave CMRT for the new authority, which was announced by Howard County in March. Forming the new agency and cutting ties with CMRT - an independent nonprofit that buses 2 million riders annually between Laurel, College Park, Columbia, Arundel Mills and Odenton, as well as other paratransit, regional commuter and Howard's local Howard Transit routes - is being touted by advocates as a cost saving measure that will cut out the middle man. According to a Howard County news release, the new service will cut $2 million a year in costs for Howard and Anne Arundel Counties, which officials said can be used to improve the service.

The Baltimore Blast, along with five other former Major Indoor Soccer League teams, have reached an agreement to partner with teams from the Professional Arena Soccer League to create a new league that is expected to consist of 20-plus teams throughout North America. The Milwaukee Wave, St. Louis Ambush, Missouri Comets, Rochester Lancers and Syracuse Silver Knights will join the Blast in the new league. All six franchises had their contracts with the United Soccer Leagues, which runs the MISL, expire last month after the 2013-14 season concluded.

Few musicians generate the affection that Itzhak Perlman has enjoyed from the public for the better part of four decades. That bond is still going strong, as was evident the moment he made his entrance at the Music Center at Strathmore Thursday night to begin a dual concert with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra as violin soloist and conductor. The sight of the 68-year-old Perlman making his way on crutches to his chair understandably seemed to worry the audience, and the initial, hearty ovation subsided long before he could get situated.

Katrina Marinelli swung for the fences and got all ball. "Nice hit," said a teammate. It wasn't really a hit. The 12-year-old Roland Park girl was hitting a softball off a tee into a net during practice, as the Rams, a newly formed girls softball team at Roland Park Elementary/Middle School, prepared for an April 8 away game against Dumbarton Middle School in Rodgers Forge. Coaches and parents who organized the team say it's the first girls softball team at the school in many years, if not ever, and a rarity in the budget-conscious Baltimore Public School System, where middle school softball is considered a luxury.

Right-hander Kevin Gausman was scratched from his scheduled start for Triple-A Norfolk tonight. With inclement weather expected Friday in Detroit, he could join the Orioles and be available to pitch in a possible doubleheader against the Tigers on Saturday. Gausman, one of the final cuts in spring training, was set to start the Tides' season opener in Norfolk, but Orioles manager Buck Showalter called Norfolk manager Ron Johnson this afternoon to tell him the club might need Gausman this weekend.
