Each Tuesday in the Toy Department, veteran Baltimore Sun sportswriter Mike Klingaman tracks down a former local sports figure and lets you know what's going on in his/her life in a feature called "Catching Up With ..." He won 209 games in the big leagues, pitched one no-hitter and played in two All-Star Games as an Oriole. Yet Milt Pappas' legacy will always be the part he played in the biggest trade in team history - the one that brought Frank Robinson to Baltimore. Never mind that in nine years here, Pappas never had a losing season.

Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman didn't have his best outing Sunday night against the New York Yankees, but he still extended his remarkable streak of consistency that has now lasted more than three months as he has solidified his spot as the club's ace. After allowing one run and five hits in 6 2/3 innings in the Orioles' 3-2, walk-off victory over the Yankees, Tillman has recorded 19 straight starts of allowing three earned runs or fewer. That mark ties him with Milt Pappas (1965)

MILWAUKEE - Bernie Brewer wasn't at Miller Park last night, and the famous racing sausages decided to sit this one out, too. But the pro-Cubs announced crowd of 23,441 that showed up for the first makeup game of the hurricane-affected series between Chicago and the Houston Astros got a chance to watch Carlos Zambrano make history. Zambrano threw the Cubs' first no-hitter in 36 years in a 5-0 victory, stunning the Astros and making a triumphant return to the mound after an 11-day layoff since his previous start.

There was a total self-assurance to Milt Pappas, almost approaching arrogance. Either it was natural or contrived -- an effort to be mature beyond his tender years, a swashbuckling big-time attitude. At the age of 18, only days out of high school and a young Oriole of imposing presence, he took to calling manager Paul Richards by his first name.Pappas has now told his life story to not one ghostwriter but two, and the recitation has been published by Angel Press of Oshkosh, Wis., under the title "Out At Home, or the Triumph and Tragedy in the Life of a Major Leaguer."

SARASOTA, Fla. -- For the first time in 11 years, Cal Ripken didn't show up at spring training with the pitchers and catchers. By his standards that made him a week late, but for a very practical reason.The Orioles' All-Star shortstop reported as scheduled yesterday, delayed" because his wife, Kelly, has been ill.But once on the grounds, nothing had changed. It was like Ripken never left. He admitted to "sometimes being embarrassed about how I feel about this game," but didn't try to hide his enthusiasm."

His name appeared in only three major-league box scores, a total of two innings -- no wins, no losses -- but life after baseball has become a comforting success story for John Papa. Destiny decreed he'd be among the early Baltimore Orioles bonus boys, a time when the club was making exorbitant free-agent investments in such diverse talents as Dave Nicholson, Bruce Swango, Jim Pyburn, Bob Saverine, Frank Zupo, Steve Dalkowski, Wayne Causey, Bob Nelson, Tom Gastall, Dean Chance and an array of other names not necessarily preordained for the Hall of Fame.
