House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi praised Maryland Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski for "opening wide the doors of opportunity for the next generation of women leaders" in a statement Friday to honor the senator's latest milestone: Mikulski will become the longest-serving female in Congress on Saturday. Pelosi, a Baltimore native who attended the same high school as Mikulski -- the institute of Notre Dame -- credited with the Maryland Democrat with leading "the way for the many of us who came to public service after her. " Mikulski will reach 12,858 days of service in Congress on Saturday, surpassing the previous record set by Rep. Edith Nourse Rogers, a Massachusetts Republican.

One of the things I like about baseball - and there are a lot of things to like, especially when the Orioles reach the American League Championship Series - is the way it marks time. You don't have to be a stats freak to remember the milestones. When your team is alive in October, the year of that happy development registers forever. In the Barry Levinson-directed film adaptation of Bernard Malamud's "The Natural," the fictional slugger Roy Hobbs shatters the glass clock in center field with a line-drive home run. That is to say: Baseball will never be ruled by time.

This would have been unthinkable when I came to The Baltimore Sun twenty-seven years ago. My colleague Kevin Rector has launched a blog at Baltimoresun.com called Gay Matters , in which he and Michael Gold will present "a new home for gay news and commentary. " Mr. Rector will write on politics, policy, crime, and related matters; Mr. Gold will explore aspects of pop culture, sports, and the media. Mr. Rector's introductory post describes the Pepper Hill raid of 1955, in which Baltimore police raided the Pepper Hill Club (on North Gay Street; I am not making this up)

It has been a difficult season for Orioles slugger Chris Davis, but the first baseman hit two milestones Friday night with one swing. With his sixth-inning solo shot, Davis picked up his 20th homer of the season and 150th of his career. He was asked Saturday about whether No. 150 meant something to him. “I think it's a good number. It's not real high. It's not low,” he said. “But I think it is just one of those things that you can look back at the body of work and really appreciate everything that has gone into it.” Davis hit a major league-best 53 homers last season but has struggled much of this year.

Thank you, Baltimore Sun, for featuring a same-sex couple in your Scene section this past Sunday. The article "A step delayed 12 years" (June 2) shows a loving male couple in white dinner jackets on their wedding day in Maryland. The article describes how both men met, their wedding day plus the participation of both families in the ceremony and reception. It was truly moving to see this story featured in a major Maryland newspaper and I'm guessing this is a first for the Sun. Of course, all of this is possible because our state lawmakers passed the same-sex marriage bill last year, Gov. Martin O'Malley signed the bill and a majority of our state citizens voted to uphold the law. Bravo to The Sun and the state of Maryland!

The choice is the fan's Dom Amore Hartford Courant When Christian Lopez wrapped his meaty arms and defensive tackle's body around the ball struck for Derek Jeter's 3,000th hit, the ball and its historic significance became his — and his alone. What that meant: It was for Lopez to decide what to do. It boggles the mind that such a baseball would have six-figure value to anyone but the man who hit it, but it does. Lopez could have held out for the highest bid and there would have been nothing wrong with it. He chose to give it back and ask for nothing.

Scoring 22 points in a win Friday against Archbishop Curley, Gilman senior forward Ryan Ripken surpassed the 1,000-point mark for his four-year career. While the two-year captain has been putting up consistent numbers, he's also bringing plenty of valuable intangibles that have helped the Greyhounds to a 4-1 start. In wins against Severn, then-No. 14 Calvert Hall and Curley, the 6-foot-6 son of Orioles legend Cal Ripken Jr. averaged 17.3 points, 10.7 rebounds and 2.7 steals.

Commissioner nearly became the latest long shot to win the Belmont Stakes, losing to Tonalist in a photo finish as a 28-1 shot Saturday. Trainer Todd Pletcher said all along his horse had the perfect pedigree to run 1 ½ miles at Belmont Park. He had dreamed of saddling him in the Belmont from the first days he worked with the colt. “He ran super,” Pletcher said. “I didn't anticipate that we would be on the lead, but we weren't going to take away anything they gave us. He was almost good enough today.” Like Tonalist, Commissioner did not run in either of the first two legs of the Triple Crown.

For many "American Ninja Warrior" competitors, the warped wall is an insurmountable challenge. But Kacy Catanzaro is not one of those warriors. On Monday's episode of NBC's reality extreme challenge show, Catanzaro, a former Towson University gymnast, became the first female in the show's history to scale the warped wall, moving on to the next round of competition. Catanzaro, who also competed on the show last year, repeatedly jumped up and down in sheer elation after she got to the top of the wall during the qualifying round.  The Towson community was quick to tweet its support.

At NASA Goddard Space Flight Center last month, Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski and space agency Administrator Charles Bolden stressed the importance of maintaining budget support for the James Webb Space Telescope, keeping it on track for a 2018 launch. Sticking to that schedule is the job of the Webb telescope's project manager, Bill Ochs, who, from his office on the Greenbelt campus, oversees all of the moving parts slated to come together and be blasted into space in 41/2 years. It's a complicated job, Ochs acknowledged, but since new development and spending plans were approved three years ago for the delayed and over-budget project, things have been running smoothly.

Many high school coaches never even reach 100 wins, but three local girls basketball coaches are approaching much bigger career milestones that end in "00," and all have a chance to reach them this week. Southern's Linda Kilpatrick, who has more wins than any other active girls basketball coach in the area, needs two wins for her 500th victory. Catonsville's Mike Mohler needs one to hit 400, and Milford Mill's DeToiya McAliley needs one to reach 200. All three grew up in the neighborhoods in which they now coach, and Kilpatrick and McAliley played basketball for and graduated from the schools where they now coach.

Chris Davis slugged his way to another milestone Sunday, pulling his 100th career home run into the right field seats, but lost in the shuffle was another trend that shows how well the Orioles first baseman has been hitting this year. The home run, which came against Boston's Jon Lester, was his sixth of the year against left-handed pitching. He hit seven all of last year off lefties. Entering Sunday's game, Davis was batting .250 with 22 career home runs against lefties, compared to .275 with 77 home runs against right-handers.

The year just ended brought a number of significant milestones, most of them good, to the area covered by The Record . The highlights include a couple of noteworthy sports accomplishments, completion of a major highway project, the end of a couple of eras in our history, the celebration of another and, possibly, the beginning of another of historic proportions. There were also three tragic deaths at Aberdeen Proving Ground and a bizarre crime story from a year earlier that hasn't gone away.
