Sony JumboTRON, the sophisticated scoreboard television at the new Oriole Park at Camden Yards, sustained minor damage yesterday when a wind gust swept a plywood sheet into the screen.The accident damaged several louvers in the lower right section of the screen. Repairs will be completed before Opening Day, April 6, said Bob Wyatt, project director for Barton Malow Co., the ballpark construction managers.The flying plywood had been on top of the scoreboard where workmen had placed it to protect electrical components as they welded into place an advertisement for The Baltimore Sun, Wyatt said.

The Ravens scored two rushing touchdowns in last Sunday's 25-15 win against the Cleveland Browns. Bernard Pierce's 12-yard scamper with one second left in the first quarter gave the team a 14-0 lead, but it might have gone for naught if not for a timely block by Anquan Boldin. Lined up to the left of the offensive front, the wide receiver engaged cornerback Sheldon Brown long enough at the 8-yard line for Pierce to bounce to his left and race down the sideline untouched. It was a seemingly minor footnote in a performance in which Boldin had five catches for 57yards, but to Boldin, the block was just as important as his 21-yard reception that contributed to Torrey Smith's game-winning 19-yard touchdown catch.

To the list of technological wonders that will greet Baltimore Orioles fans next season at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, the Maryland Stadium Authority just added one more: a brighter, clearer video scoreboard.Yesterday, the Board of Public Works approved a stadium authority plan to outfit the main scoreboard with a $2.6 million Sony Jumbotron, the same model that has drawn oohs and aahs in new ballparks in Chicago and Toronto.Charles Steinberg, Orioles director of public affairs and the team executive in charge of video policy, said yesterday that the Jumbotron would offer fans pictures that are "significantly superior" to those they watched on the 7-year-old Diamondvision at Memorial Stadium.

After the Ravens' 27-13 victory over the Miami Dolphins, the Ravens presented the game ball to offensive coordinator Cam Cameron. But it might as well have been the Dolphins who handed it to their former coach. The Ravens' three-game losing streak ended for a couple of reasons: The Dolphins threw a costly interception and couldn't deliver one in return. Those mistakes led to Terrell Suggs' 44-yard interception return for a score and Derrick Mason's 11-yard touchdown catch, which turned the game around in the second quarter and breathed new life into the Ravens (3-3)

Oriole Park's JumboTron -- the giant video screen that was considered cutting edge a decade ago -- might be replaced by a newer model. A formal request for bids from manufacturers is being prepared jointly by the team and the Maryland Stadium Authority, which built and owns the stadium, and could be issued next month. The current video screen cost $2.6 million and was among the most advanced in sports when it was installed for the opening of Oriole Park in 1992. But the technology employed by the 23-foot by 31-foot board has been eclipsed by snazzier ones such as the oversized SmartVision in the Ravens' stadium.

A woman who lives in Tribeca, just blocks from the World Trade Center in New York, told me this story a couple of years ago: She had been home the morning of 9/11 and heard a boom that sent her running outside to see what had happened. She and her neighbors watched from the sidewalk, aghast, as first one tower erupted in flames and smoke and, minutes later, so did the other one. And then they did the natural thing: They went back inside to watch it on TV. I thought about this when I heard about the brouhaha over the aging JumboTron video screen at Camden Yards.

The Maryland Stadium Authority agreed yesterday to move forward with the purchase of a new Mitsubishi video screen for Camden Yards despite objections from the Orioles. Orioles officials say the DiamondVision screen is too small and technologically inadequate and plan to file a temporary restraining order in Baltimore Circuit Court today to block the $1.5 million purchase. The restraining order would give the Orioles time to move the dispute to arbitration as is called for in the team's lease for the stadium.

On the field: After Ken Griffey doubled home Alex Rodriguez from first in the first inning last night, Orioles second baseman Roberto Alomar and shortstop Cal Ripken asked second base umpire Brian O'Nora to watch the replay on the JumboTron -- and the replay showed that Griffey's ball actually had bounced over the wall and then back onto the field, a ground-rule double. But the umpires stuck with their ruling, indicating the ball may have glanced off the glove of left fielder Luis Polonia.

Regulars know that the new JumboTron board is no suitable replacement for the old totalizator board in the infield, and yesterday the Preakness crowd came to realize it. "I understood the other board better," Carol Barney said. "The old one made a little more sense. You could tell the exactas and trifectas. I just can't understand some of the stuff on this one." Deactivated to make room for $250 canopied seats facing the track's rail, the old tote board provided much more information more often and was easier to see in both the sunshine and the shadows.

When he wakes up in the morning, Chris King steps onto a terrace, sits down for breakfast and beholds a singular sight: the field at Camden Yards. Late at night, he sometimes takes in the stars and downtown skyline from the vast openness of the upper deck. In between, he paints and paints and paints. King has become a true artist in residence, sleeping most nights on an army cot in one of the three stadium "party suites" the Baltimore Orioles have hired him to decorate with murals recalling heroes of old. With Opening Day set for a week from today, King has been racing the clock to finish the series of larger-than-life images celebrating Orioles legends Frank Robinson, Brooks Robinson and Jim Palmer.

WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. -- No matter how much happens around him, to him and because of him, Eric Davis insists nothing has changed.Sitting in the same San Fernando Valley home he bought 13 years ago, the Orioles right fielder and cancer patient says only perceptions are different. Once Davis was considered a talented but injury-prone -- even reluctant -- prodigy. Now, he tours the country as an inspiration.New York. Seattle. Boston. Chicago. They've all booked him for various banquets, much like the Tops in Sports Banquet tonight at Towson University, where he will be feted as the most inspirational figure in the Orioles' memorable 1997 season.

I'VE SEEN some nasty, terrible, horrible things in my life.I've seen, just as an example, Jerry Lewis sing in person. I've seen Earl Weaver naked. I've seen Marty Bass do the Macarena.But I've never seen anything to compare with this past weekend at Camden Yards.We waited 13 years for this? We waited 13 years to see the Orioles humiliated by the, shudder, Yankees and, worse, the Yankees fans?We've all had bad weekends. You may remember a few. There was the time you came home late on a Saturday night only to find the kids had held a "slight" party.
