When Paul Molitor and Dennis Eckersley are inducted into the Hall of Fame today in Cooperstown, N.Y., every kid who ever thought about playing professional baseball should take a moment and think about the meaning of perseverance. Molitor might have ended up with 4,000 hits if he had not had to battle through a long series of injuries that cost him hundreds of games over the course of his great career. He also battled some personal demons in the late 1970s and early '80s, and admitted to using cocaine.

The implication being that nowhere in Maryland was there a spa up to convention-goer standards. How we bystanders groaned.So, next week some 500 members of the Pennsylvania Bar Association will be assembling for four days of work and fun. Where? By the Patapsco waterside, at the Stouffer Harborplace Inn, some distance from Pennsylvania.

Neither rain nor rail system can prevent the Orioles from experiencing a day off. It's scheduled for today, and as far as they're concerned, it's about time. How long has it been since the Orioles didn't wake up expecting to play? It didn't take manager Mike Hargrove more than a few seconds to respond correctly. "Thirty-two days," he said, "but who's counting?" Perhaps nobody except the Orioles, who haven't enjoyed a scheduled day off during the second half. They lost a July 30 open date to make up one of the games postponed because of the train accident.

"Couldn't happen to a crazier guy, huh?-- David Wells"This kind of accomplishment is too far-fetched for me. You know what's going on, you try to keep things in check, but there's no way in heck you can."-- Wells"Once in Cincinnati, I had a no-hitter going, and Davey Johnson made a defensive change, then the next batter got a hit. I head-butted him."-- Wells"That was pretty spectacular. The fact that he kept his composure and was able to do that in this ballpark with 50,000 people screaming, that's pretty impressive.

With the Major League Baseball Players Association and negotiators for the owners honoring a general media blackout, the two sides have quietly continued working toward a new Basic Agreement. A primary issue -- one that will affect the coming free-agent class -- is whether players will receive credit for service time lost during the strike.As it stands, there will be some intriguing free agents, although it is generally a crop weak in pitching. The potential free agents include:Catchers: Joe Girardi, Kirt Manwaring, Tom Pagnozzi, Benito Santiago and Terry Steinbach.
