Jim Palmer's last official trip to a big-league mound came about a decade ago, but the Orioles have never stopped appreciating their Hall of Fame pitcher.Or, as it turns out, paying him.Palmer, who, except for a brief spring-training comeback two years ago, retired in 1984, will collect $30,468 from the Orioles this year, putting him among more than a dozen former players and front-office employees who are receiving a little more than $8.6 million in deferred salaries and bonuses from the Orioles.

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."

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.

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.

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.
