Sitting on stage alongside his aging teammates, having dinner during the Sports Legend Museum induction at Martin's West Tuesday night, 85-year-old Gino Marchetti will chew on this: "It's amazing to me that, after all these years, people are still thinking of us," Marchetti, the Baltimore Colts' Hall of Fame defensive end, said. "I always figured that I'd play football for a few years, go home to Antioch (Calif.) and work in the mill until I turned 65, then go fishing. But, God almighty, the people of Baltimore want to keep promoting us. "The fans were always great in this town.

In the past 30 years, two items stolen from the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Sports Legends Museums were recovered. Officials at the Camden Yards museum are hoping for similar luck after a ring was taken last week from a display case, part of a collection honoring amateur coach and Orioles scout Walter Youse. "We've provided all the information the police have asked for, and we're hopeful that it will turn up something here. Ultimately, the most important thing is the recovery of the ring," said Michael Gibbons, the museum's executive director.

That so much attention and renown has come to a man born 100 years ago, the son of a lightning-rod installer who improved his lot in life by becoming a saloon keeper, tests all the normal powers of comprehension. How could such admiration and distinction be so perpetuated in a fickle world where heroes come and go with the changing of the tides?The exception in this scenario is in the mere mention of the name Babe Ruth.There has never been a career that seems more fiction than fact, except all the documention, including testimony of witnesses and numbers in the record book, than that of Ruth.

She was born as Mary Margaret Ruth, but everyone knew her as "Mamie" -- the name, she would say, her brother George would use to annoy her.On Wednesday, Mamie Ruth Moberly -- the little sister of baseball immortal Babe Ruth -- died of cancer at the Colton Villa Nursing Center in Hagerstown. She was 91.A native of Baltimore, Mamie Ruth lived during her childhood in the apartments above various family taverns -- including, from about 1906 to 1912, Ruth's Saloon, located roughly in what is now center field at the city's new baseball palace, Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

Baltimore's Babe Ruth Museum is planning to join with the Yogi Berra Museum in Montclair, N.J., on an exhibit highlighting baseball in Japan and the United States. Officials announced the exhibit, which they hope will debut in the fall of 2002 and tour cities in both countries, yesterday at the Babe Ruth Museum near Camden Yards. Berra, the Hall of Fame catcher for the New York Yankees who starred in the 1950s and 1960s, attended the event. He had toured Japan twice with his Yankees teammates in the 1950s.

The Maryland Stadium Authority voted yesterday to go ahead on nearly $1 million of structural repairs to Camden Station, a historic train depot whose name inspired the city's renowned baseball park. The building sits empty, as it has since it closed as a commuter rail station in the mid-1980s. A decade ago, the authority spent $2.2 million to restore the building's exterior to coincide with the opening of Oriole Park at Camden Yards in 1992. At that time, the interior improvement was left up to a private investor because the authority didn't have the money to do it. No fewer than seven groups have seemed serious possibilities as tenants for the building - most prominently the Babe Ruth Museum - but nothing has materialized.

It looked like a post-game celebration -- baseball fans packed Oriole Park's Bambino's Pub and Pastimes Cafe. It sounded like a post-game party -- as folks bid on game-related treasures in the silent auction, or stopped to chat with Baltimore Oriole Sidney Ponson or ultra-fan Wild Bill Hagy. It even tasted like a post-game get-together -- with hot dogs, nachos and soft pretzels as the chow-du-jour. But this was February. The park was empty. The baseball season hadn't begun. Nope, this was a birthday party -- the Babe Ruth Museum's Babe's Birthday Bash -- as 250 fans gathered to honor the 106th b-day of hometown boy Ruth and raise $7,500 for the museum.
