They have handled similar situations the only way they know (( how -- with class.One is rich, famous and a future Hall of Famer.The other is a senior at Howard High.Say hello to Cal Ripken and Rachel Grantham."Cal Ripken would rather be playing shortstop, there's no doubt about it," said Howard coach Dave Vezzi. "But Cal's playing third base and helping his team. Rachel's the same way. She's not going to come out and say, 'I don't want to play second base, I want to be pitching.' She's going to help the team whatever way she can, and if playing second base is where she's going to help, that's what she'll do."

Ravens reserve cornerback Cary Williams was suspended two games by the NFL for a violation of the personal conduct policy, the team confirmed Thursday. Williams was signed by the Ravens on Nov. 24 off the Tennessee Titans' practice squad. "We've been aware of this since before we signed Cary," general manager Ozzie Newsome said in a statement. The disciplinary action was taken by the NFL because of "a situation" involving Williams' family in Tennessee while he was a member of the Titans, his agent, Marc Lillibridge, said Thursday.

Donnell Whittenburg isn't quite sure when his gymnastics career began, years before the medals, the tryouts and traveling across the country, but he can remember where it all started: the backyard of his childhood Baltimore home. The 19-year-old U.S. men's national team member, who will compete on Thursday in the preliminary rounds of the Winter Cup Challenge in Las Vegas, recalls performing handstands and other stunts outside his house, a practice his mother, Sheila Brown, didn't take to fondly.

Most attendees arrived at the Towson Catholic High School Class of 2010 graduation in beach attire. The graduates had already done the cap-and-gown thing at numerous other high schools, where they were scattered when their alma mater closed before their final year. Graduates crammed into restaurant booths and sipped sodas as they caught up on their unexpected senior year. Their parents tossed them a party at a Parkville crab house to give the graduates each a tasseled mortarboard, in the Towson Catholic blue and gold, and one last memory of the school.

As he makes his farewell tour through the American League, Nolan Ryan hears two questions repeated at every stop. His answers do not vary."One thing I haven't done is reflect back on my career," he says when asked if any of his legendary accomplishments stand out above the others. "I try to occupy myself with getting ready to pitch."To Ryan, his career has been a singular experience. The seven no-hitters, 12 one-hitters and 5,705 strikeouts are records that may never be broken, but they are only part of the package.
