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 linebacker Robert McCune doesn't go to beaches. He usually doesn't wear tank-top or sleeveless T-shirts. Because when he does, it causes a lot of commotion. McCune has earned a lot of nicknames from his teammates. Some call him "Swoll," short for swollen. Some call him "Rock." Others call him "Herc" or "Muscles." In a business in which bodies are chiseled and molded every day into human mountains, McCune probably has the best in the NFL. There are estimates that he has only 6 percent to 8 percent body fat. Even his muscles have muscles.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- South Korean right-hander Suk-min Yoon has yet to pitch in a Grapefruit League game and likely won't until late next week at the earliest. Yoon is slated to spend most of next week in Canada obtaining his work visa. He will fly to Ottawa on Sunday and has an interview appointment on Monday morning. That process is expected to take a few days, but it beats the alternative of Yoon traveling back to South Korea to get his visa - which would involve lengthy travel and missing extended time in camp.

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.

MARLBOROUGH, England - Purchased for a pittance, treated like family and transformed into a steeplechase champion, Priceless Room was this year's Cinderella horse from Maryland. But yesterday, the bay gelding with a big heart and a beautiful stride discovered that there's nothing quite as slow, frustrating and ultimately exhausting as running on soggy English soil. Two jumps from the finish and trailing in the Marlborough Cup, the 10-year-old from Big Wood Stables in Monkton, Md., was pulled up by his jockey, J.W. Delozier III. A day that began with high hopes that Priceless Room might pull off a second straight victory in a four-race championship series to claim a $100,000 bonus, ended with relief that the horse was safe and sound.
