Sometimes, Randy Knorr sits in his room, all alone, and laughs. Late at night, he sits on his balcony overlooking Nationals Park. In the mornings, he leaves his apartment and thinks to himself, "Oh, my God. I get to go to that stadium to work. " He works with some of the best baseball players in the world, many of whom he has coached since they were minor leaguers. At each first pitch, as the Washington Nationals bench coach, Knorr is standing in the dugout of a major league baseball game.

He wasn't even in the lineup on Opening Day, but yesterday Toronto Blue Jays catcher Randy Knorr nearly hit for the cycle.Almost. Maybe. Sort of. Not."There's no way I'm getting a triple in this place," Knorr said after hitting a home run, a double and a single in Toronto's 7-3 victory at Camden Yards. "Someone would have to fall down."Slow afoot, Knorr has two major-league and two minor-league triples to his credit.The 26-year-old Californian has a better foothold on the starting catching job. After two years with the Blue Jays as a part-time player, he has emerged as the man behind the plate.

Jeanne Ruviella-Knorr passed out bright green tennis balls to the second-graders sitting in four rows on the floor of the William Paca/Old Post Road Elementary School music room and then turned on a CD of Stars and Stripes Forever by John Philip Sousa. The pupils rolled the tennis balls to the sound of flutes; tapped the tops, pretending to play piccolos; mimicked a trombone slide; and bounced the tennis balls to the drumbeat. "Tennis balls are just one of the things that I use to engage the children in creative improvisational musical activities," Ruviella-Knorr said.

LA CROSSE, Wis. -- At 79, Al Knorr could fill his days in the recliner with televised junk food, watching Oprah Winfrey and Judge Judy and yelling "big money, big money!" when Wheel of Fortune comes on. But twice every weekday, Knorr dons his black snowmobile mittens and insulated shirt, and heads to the busiest intersections in town, where he stands as a solitary street-corner sentry against the war in Iraq. Knorr's large cardboard "Stop the war" placard on a wooden broomstick draws honks and thumbs-up signals from some rush-hour drivers and abuse from others, such as the guy in the white pickup truck who rolled down his window and made an obscene gesture.

Pat Gillick's days are just as frenetic as they were in December, when the Orioles general manager pieced together a contender. But there are fewer calls to agents now, and more promotional appearances. Less time spent negotiating with free agents, more time making speeches.Two weeks away from the start of spring training, there's little work to do with the major-league team, other than some fine-tuning. The Orioles want to acquire a backup catcher, a left-handed hitter for the bench, and they continue to talk to the agent for free-agent reliever Mike Jackson, hoping he'll slide into their price range.
