When Andy MacPhail wrestled with the idea of walking away from the Orioles as club president last fall, one of the primary factors in ultimately making the decision was the chance to spend more time with his elderly father. Lee MacPhail Jr., the Hall of Fame baseball executive, died Friday at age 95, roughly a year after Andy stepped down from the Orioles. Andy MacPhail told me last month he had no regrets in making the decision, and that he had been able to visit his father in Florida several times in 2012.

The son pointed around the diamond, identifying the players in their pristine uniforms before the first pitch of the Grapefruit League season. When the son got to new Orioles center fielder Adam Jones, he explained to his dad that the 22-year-old had a lot of talent, a lot of upside.

The 2001 major league season begins today with the Baltimore Orioles at a crossroads, shifting away from a dependence on veterans and free agents and toward a more youthful cast featuring homegrown talent. But this isn't the first time in the club's long history that it has undertaken such a change. In 1960, with a group of rookie pitchers nicknamed the "Kiddie Corps" and an assortment of other new faces, the Orioles managed to challenge the New York Yankees for the American League pennant for the first time.
