Mr. Baer also made scores of TV appearances, and was Darby, Ozzie Nelson's next-door neighbor, on TV's The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet.

Houston -- As they danced on the field and White Sox were piled one on top of another, as though this bowl of a baseball stadium were actually a giant laundry basket, there was one man at the heart of it all. When they surprised the baseball world back in the spring and wowed us all here in the fall, one man stood alone in the middle. And whenever the cameras rolled and the mics were hot, it was always the same man we saw at the center. The most valuable member of this team doesn't swing a bat, he doesn't throw a pitch and he doesn't turn double plays.

"Masterminds" is a cinematic antidote to teen-age disaffection, a harmless thriller occurring at the intersection of "Home Alone" and "Die Hard," where the most resourceful people of all ride skateboards and worry about acne.Vincent Kartheiser as the young hero has the slouchy hipness, the mischievous smirk and the long lashes that should make him a teen sensation. He plays 16-year-old Ozzie Paxton, who, while lacking a skin condition, has plenty of other ingredients that brew a fine stew of adolescent angst: a mother who abandoned him, a workaholic father who doesn't pay enough attention and a pest of a younger stepsister.

It was Ozzie, all right. Accustomed to seeing him in black-and-white, I was slow to recognize him in color. ''Where's Harriet?'' I asked.''She doesn't like to come to the Fifties Lounge anymore,'' Ozzie sighed. ''She says it's not worth the hassle.'' He gestured to the knot of protesters outside the lounge, carrying signs with messages like: ''Down With The 1950s!'' and ''Admit It, Life Was Rotten Then, Too!''Inside the lounge everything seemed reassuringly familiar. Jim Anderson was tossing a football with a son. The spaghetti sauce had exploded in Lucy's kitchen, but Lucy, dressed for some reason in a baseball uniform, was flipping fish to some seals that somehow had gotten in. Ralph Kramden had a scheme that would make him and Ed Norton millionaires.

He sits at a bare wooden table, talking virtually nonstop, occasionally sipping a glass of water and waggling his knees. The timing of the drinks seems choreographed to occur after a particular line, to punctuate a pause. The toe-tapping does not. Is he Spalding Gray? Ozzie Russo? Or a carefully calibrated, artfully presented version of both? Gray's life has been the fodder for 18 autobiographical monologues in which he has compulsively discussed the most intimate details of his life, from a stint making pornographic movies to a visit to an American Indian sweat lodge, from his mother's suicide to playing a bit part in "The Killing Fields."

In the past, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome has been able to add some quality players in the second phase of free agency because of patience, and that won't change in 2014. In 2011, the Ravens added left offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie shortly before the season began and last year signed inside linebacker Daryl Smith on June 5. Smith went on to lead the team in tackles last season with 123. As of Monday, the Ravens were quite comfortable with their 90-player roster. "Basically, most of the players have been pored over and picked through," Newsome said.

This time, The Brewer's Art went with a local celebrity of sorts. After receiving a cease-and-desist letter on behalf of musician Ozzy Osbourne, the Baltimore brewery has renamed its Ozzy beer Beazly, said co-owner Tom Creegan on Tuesday afternoon. It is named after Mark Barcus, a bartender of the Mount Vernon bar for nearly 17 years. His nickname around the bar is Beazly, Creegan said. "The running joke joke was if you worked here long enough, you don't get a gold watch - you get a gold ale," Creegan said.  The company submitted the proposed name change to Osbourne's representatives, Creegan said, and they approved it. Earlier this month, The Brewer's Art asked customers to submit potential new names for the beer (which will keep the same recipe)

With a lot of local attention over the weekend focused on running back Ray Rice's recent indictment on a charge of aggravated assault and Opening Day for the Orioles, some big news went unnoticed. The Ravens didn't sign running back LeGarrette Blount - and the Pittsburgh Steelers did. The two-year deal, which is reportedly worth $3.85 million, leaves the Ravens with a big hole and also means they'll have to face a new two-headed monster in Pittsburgh with Blount and Le'Veon Bell.

Ozzy Osbourne has endorsed soda, a cellphone and even imitation butter spread. But one product the Prince of Darkness apparently does not approve of is Ozzy, the Belgian-style strong pale ale made by the Baltimore-based company The Brewer's Art. The local brewery received a cease-and-desist letter from representatives of Osbourne, the hard-rock-forefather-turned-reality-TV-star, Brewer's Art co-owner Tom Creegan confirmed. The canned version of the beer has a logo depicting a clenched fist with the letters O-Z-Z-Y spelled on the fingers, similar to the Black Sabbath singer's own left hand.

Baltimore beer company The Brewer's Art received a cease and desist letter from representatives of Ozzy Osbourne over the brewery's popular pale ale named "Ozzy," (pictured above, on the left side), Brewer's Art co-owner Tom Creegan said this afternoon. The canned version of the beer features a logo depicting a clenched fist with the letters O-Z-Z-Y spelled on the fingers, similar to the hard-rock singer's own left hand. Bat imagery also appears, which is likely a reference to one of Osbourne's most infamous on-stage stunts .  Creegan declined to comment further on the news, first reported today by City Paper.

The Ravens and Terrell Suggs avoided a grievance by essentially creating a new position, Suggs' agent confirmed last night. The sides reached an agreement on a one-year franchise tag tender worth close to $8.5 million, which will pay him as a hybrid defensive end-linebacker. It is believed that the NFL Players Association and the NFL management council are finalizing details to sign off on the compromise. "His job is to rush the quarterback as a defensive end, and I thought it was unfair that he had to live under the linebacker franchise tag," said Gary Wichard, Suggs' agent.

INDIANAPOLIS - Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome acknowledged Saturday that video showing Ray Rice dragging his unconscious fiancee from an elevator at an Atlantic City, N.J., casino is a troubling image for the star running back. However, Newsome is withholding judgment on Rice as the legal process unfolds and he's encouraged by the decision of the three-time Pro Bowl running back and his fiancee, Janay Palmer, to get counseling for their relationship. “I did [watch the video]
