Bat in hand, E.J. Kanieck, 72, squinted under his red, white and blue sun visor on the makeshift baseball field at Oak Crest Village retirement community in Parkville. He swung carefully and hit a slow grounder. Then a swing and a miss. Another pitch, a swing -- and a topple. Kanieck, who had not picked up a bat in more than 29 years, fell but quickly got back on his feet to continue in yesterday's Oak Crest Home Run Derby. "You're just warming up there, E.J.," said announcer Jim Wetzel, microphone in hand, who is best known to Baltimoreans as Jim West of the former West and Jones show on WBAL radio.
