Six weeks after receiving a cortisone injection to quiet an inflamed nerve in his lower back, Orioles third baseman Cal Ripken says he continues to experience significant discomfort in the back and left leg and may soon consider a "Plan B." "I have freedom of movement even though I have a little instability and a lot of pain down my left leg," Ripken said before starting at third base in yesterday's 4-2 loss to the Seattle Mariners. Shooting pain in the region caused Ripken to visit Cleveland orthopedic surgeon Dr. Henry Bohlman on May 15, three days after Ripken was scratched from a start against Boston with pain he likened to his pre- surgery sensation.

Three years ago, Senior Airman Gideon Connelly decided to have his left leg amputated below the knee. On Thursday, Connelly ran the 200-meter dash in 29.4 seconds. The 25-year-old Dundalk resident was one of 200-plus participants to compete in last week's Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, an adaptive-sports competition founded in 2010 for wounded or ill service members and veterans like Connelly, whose recovery from a 2011 motorcycle accident trumps anything he has done in the wake of it. "It's great watching these wounded warriors get together to compete for all these medals," Connelly said.

The Westminster boys lacrosse team suffered a major blow last weekend when J.C. Hutchins, considered by many to be the top goalie in Carroll County, was involved in a serious car accident that will leave him out of action for approximately six months. Hutchins broke a bone in his left leg (femur) and tore the posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, and underwent a two-hour operation Saturday morning, when doctors inserted a permanent titanium rod in his leg. According to his mother, Theresa Sipes, the incident occurred Friday night just before 7. After finishing practice and watching part of a girls lacrosse game, Hutchins, a senior, decided to drive to Littlestown, Pa., to visit his girlfriend.

When Erika Brannock was a guest of the Orioles during a game at Camden Yards last June, she was still in a wheelchair but vowed to return in 2014 to throw out a first pitch before a game. Less than a year after the 29-year-old Brannock lost her left leg in the Boston Marathon bombings, the Towson preschool teacher is now walking with prosthesis. Before the Orioles' game vs. the Red Sox on Thusday -- with the aid of a walker -- she threw out the first pitch to her favorite Oriole, first baseman Chris Davis.

In what will be his first game in almost two years, Stephen Banick is slated to start in reigning Division III national champion Stevenson's season opener against York on Saturday. The sophomore attackman will play with no limitations on his role and playing time. Banick has not played since breaking his left leg in a loss to Salisbury in the NCAA semifinals on May 20, 2012. He sat out last season after suffering an undisclosed injury in the preseason. But he has played fully in the fall and preseason, and coach Paul Cantabene said that he has no questions about the 5-foot-10, 175-pound Banick's durability.

Runners set goals - and don't look back. They strive to cut those extra few minutes from their times. They have to go a quarter-mile farther each time, then a half-mile, then a mile. And beyond. They push their bodies. They want to push themselves. And for many runners in the Baltimore Running Festival, the goals are even loftier. Among the 27,000 runners in Saturday's festival, pounding the pavement in the marathon, half-marathon, relay and 5K, are many running for reasons other than the thrill of crossing a line that perhaps once was thought to be unattainable.

When the baseball season began, Erika Brannock and her friend Breanna Dickerson made plans to spend a Saturday night this summer attending an Orioles-Yankees game at Camden Yards. Two weeks after they purchased tickets for Saturday's game, those plans and Brannock's life was altered during the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15. Brannock, a 29-year-old preschool teacher from Towson, lost her left leg below the knee and needed multiple surgeries to save her right leg. When Brannock was able to return home from Boston last month - she was the last of the injured to be discharged from the hospital after 50 days - Dickerson asked if she still wanted to go to the game.

That timeline has now been pushed back. The sophomore attackman - who led the Mustangs in goals (36) and points (63) - still hasn't been cleared for full participation, and coach Paul Cantabene said it's possible that Banick may miss the entire season. “There's a good chance he might miss the season,” Cantabene conceded.
