Major league officials were relieved when the Orioles and Royals were able to play Game 1 of the American League Championship Series at Camden Yards in spite of a constant threat of rain. They might not be so lucky on Monday night. The forecast calls for a 100 percent chance of rain during the day and a 90 percent chance of rain on Monday night in the Kansas City area. If Mother Nature makes it impossible to get the game in, the same scenario will apply that was in play in Baltimore.

Henry Urrutia's first major league at-bat came with the bases loaded in the first inning Saturday night in the Orioles' 7-4 win over the Rangers. As the 26-year-old Cuban defector stepped up to the plate for the first time in a big league game, he had the chance to be an immediate hero. Urrutia struck out on five pitches, swinging and missing on two change-ups to end the at-bat, but quickly had an opportunity for redemption. In the third inning, Urrutia had the bases loaded again.

HAGERSTOWN -- Prosecutors are dropping charges against a father who had been accused of trespassing at his son's Little League game. Ricky A. Hockensmith, 47, was arrested last year amid a yearlong feud among parents of players in Hagerstown's National Little League. After petitioning for an election for a new league board, Hockensmith defied a league order to stay away from the fields at Hagerstown's Staley Park. He was convicted of trespassing and fined $50 after a hearing in December in District Court and appealed that ruling to Washington County Circuit Court.

DEAR CAL -- I am a coach for my son's instructional league baseball team (7- and 8-year-olds). It seems like I have been given all the new boys in the league, and our team has been outscored 110-32 in eight games. My kids are in the field for a half-hour at a time while other teams are batting through their order most innings. How can my players learn when they aren't really getting a chance? Do you have suggestions on how I can address this issue? Chris Harris, Westminster DEAR CHRIS -- There's no question that the 7-8 age group is very much developmental - even for the teams at that level that consider themselves "travel" programs.

DETROIT - After his team completed a tense, 2-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday to advance to the American League Championship Series, Orioles manager Buck Showalter was congratulated at the beginning of his postgame news conference for winning his first playoff series as a manager. “Really? I got one in Albany,” Showalter quipped, referring to an Eastern League crown in 1989. When the reporter specified he was talking about the majors, Showalter replied: “They're all relevant.” Fair enough.

DETROIT - Right-hander Bud Norris is now scheduled to be the Orioles' Game 3 starter on Sunday at Comerica Park.  Even though the Orioles had never officially announced a Game 3 starter, right-hander Miguel Gonzalez had been expected to pitch that game. Showalter left open wiggle room to tweak his ALDS rotation, and both pitchers were available to pitch in relief for Games 1 and 2. But Showater said that Gonzalez would have only been used in relief in case of an emergency. In the postseason, the next day's scheduled pitcher usually has a news conference with the media.

In considering his American League Division Series roster, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said this weekend in Toronto that his biggest decision was whether he would carry 10 or 11 pitchers in the best-of-five series against the Detroit Tigers. He decided on the latter and opted to make that 11th pitcher right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez . To call Jimenez's first season in Baltimore inconsistent might be kind. He's been on a roller coaster that included a second-half demotion to the bullpen.
