Mark Eichhorn,Orioles relieverEichhorn is known around baseball for his clever impressions."I've been doing them probably since I was 5," he said. "I grew up with 10 other kids, so I had an audience. If you asked anyone, they probably say they get sick of them. They'd say I've been doing it for 34 years, and I'm 34 years old."His favorite impressions:1. Popeye.2. The Cowardly Lion.3. Willie Nelson and Julio Inglesias.4. The Wicked Witch of the West.5. John Wayne.

In the spring of 1995, a handful of parents in Aptos, Calif., a small town south of San Francisco, entrusted their 5-year-old boys to the tutelage of a baseball coach named Dave Anderson. Seven years later, those kids had matured into one of America's finest Little League teams. In a new PBS documentary, Small Ball: A Little League Story, (tonight at 8 on MPT), filmmakers Louis Alvarez and Andrew Kolker do more than follow the Aptos All-Stars through their 2002 season, a nail-biting campaign that took them to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa. They remind viewers of the national pastime's almost endless capacity to bring out the best in those who play it, teach it and treat it with respect.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The latest obstacle in the baseball talks is something called a luxury tax. Union chief Donald Fehr and the owners are haggling over what the maximum payroll level should be, and how much of a tax should be assessed upon those teams who exceed the maximum.tTC They might as well be talking about the Orioles, whose payroll figures to be among the highest in baseball this year -- perhaps surpassing $45 million, including all benefits and insurance costs.At the moment, the Orioles have eight players under contract: Cal Ripken, who will make $6 million in 1995; left fielder Brady Anderson ($3.25 million)

Oriole Park at Camden Yards broke out of its coma last night.Broke out of it with the crack of Leo Gomez's bat in the seventh inning of the Orioles' 7-5 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays.Gomez hammered a just-fair home run off Toronto reliever Mike Timlin, his 15th, with one on to bring the Orioles from one rundown to one run up. Crank up the volume. The spark returned to the park that hadn't said boo since the recent setting of the strike date of Aug. 12.Of course, the Orioles hadn't given the home crowd much to clamor about until last night, when a four-game losing streak died in the din of a happy place.

All of a sudden the Orioles are having trouble throwing strikes as they prepare for one. Their current scenario is reminiscent of the 1981 season.You might recall that was the last time baseball had a significant work stoppage. It also was the last time the New York Yankees won anything.Based on what transpired in the past 11 days, we're in for a rerun. After winning three of four from the California Angels, the best thing that happened to the Orioles was the falling ceiling at Seattle's Kingdome.

* Blue Jays OF Devon White is 1 triple away from joining a very exclusive group of players who have reached double figures in doubles, triples, home runs and stolen bases. The others are Ty Cobb, Rogers Hornsby (twice), Willie Mays (4 times), Babe Ruth (twice), Ryne Sandberg and Tris Speaker (twice). White has 37 doubles, 9 triples, 14 home runs and 32 stolen bases.* When 19-year-old pitcher Todd Van Poppel made his major-league debut for the Athletics on Wednesday, he became the fourth teen-ager to start a game for the A's. Van Poppel was 19 years and 276 days old on Wednesday, older than Tim Conroy (18 years, 81 days)

TORONTO -- Chris Sabo homered, doubled, drove in three runs, broke a ninth-inning tie and played two positions last night, leading the Orioles to a 5-1 win over the Toronto Blue Jays at SkyDome.Again, Sabo made the Orioles front office look wise for not granting his wish to be sent to the minor leagues, where he could play third base every day to entice other clubs into trading for him.Sabo has proved his value at the major-league level, but the Orioles aren't about to trade him now.Sabo's bases-loaded, two-run double off fading left-handed reliever Dave Righetti broke a 1-1 tie in the ninth inning.
