TORONTO - Even though he has been with the Blue Jays for nearly a month, former Orioles outfielder Nolan Reimold is still getting adjusted to playing for a new team. Tuesday marked his first home game with Toronto, so he was still getting used to his new locker and a new clubhouse. After spending his entire career in the Orioles organization, the Blue Jays claimed Reimold off waivers July 6. “I'm happy to be on a team and be able to go out and play baseball like I know I can,” Reimold said.

Quote: "This is probably the worst place you could play baseball." - Giants' Jeff Kent on soon-to-be demolished County Stadium in Milwaukee It's a fact: The Cardinals are the only team in baseball with four 10-game winners: Pat Hentgen, Darryl Kile, Garrett Stephenson and Andy Benes. Who's hot: The Astros' Tony Eusebio has a 13-game hitting streak. Who's not: The Braves' Chipper Jones is in an 0-for-20 slump, the longest of his career. On deck: The Diamondbacks' Randy Johnson tries tonight for the fourth time to win his league-leading 16th game.

DEAR CAL / / MY 17-year-old son is a pretty good pitcher, but he can?t hit much. I took him to a guy who played semipro ball to fix his swing. He hit well in the cages but not live pitching. What can I do to help him? John Rushnok, Middleburg Heights, Ohio DEAR JOHN // It is not unusual to find someone like your son,who hits line drives all over the place in the batting cage or during batting practice but struggles against live pitching. While there is no perfect formula for how to fix this, from my experience the only way to improve a hitter?

WASHINGTON - Cal Ripken received a posting at the White House yesterday: honorary commissioner of President Bush's T-ball league. The former Orioles great will be on hand Sunday on the South Lawn when a schedule of T-ball games resumes, said Ari Fleischer, the White House spokesman. Two teams - from Trenton, N.J., and Uniondale, N.Y. - will play in a game that had originally been scheduled for Sept. 16. It was postponed indefinitely after the terrorist attacks earlier that week. "This is a sign of Cal Ripken's ongoing dedication to the sport of baseball, a sport he has done so much for," Fleischer said.

JOHN RICHTER loves baseball. The 16-year-old Meade High School junior plays with the guys in his Fort Meade neighborhood. He plays catch in the back yard with his father, John Sr. And for years, he played for youth league teams in Germany and the United States. Now he's planning to play baseball throughout Europe this summer as a member of the Coast to Coast Amateur Baseball Stars team. John, a shortstop and pitcher, was recently chosen for a spot on a 16- to 18-year-old team of athletes from around the nation that will represent the United States All Stars in a summer baseball tournament against teams in Germany, Belgium, France and England.

I'm 57 years old and love baseball. When I was a kid, there were seven ball fields to play on, and in summer, the organized leagues had all the fields occupied from morning to night. These fields are still there, in the Brooklyn section of Baltimore. Sadly, there are few teams playing on these diamonds anymore, but just over the hill from these fields, there is an entire neighborhood full of underprivileged kids. What a waste of resources. Is there any way I could help get these baseball fields filled up again?

FREDERICK -- An 11-year-old girl stretched as far as she could across the railing, trying to catch the attention of one of the Colorado Silver Bullets at Harry Grove Stadium.She didn't want an autograph. She only wanted to ask a question: "How do I try out for the team?"Lee Anne Ketcham smiled and sprinted over to the girl with the same drive that led her to join the Silver Bullets, the first women's professional baseball team recognized by the National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues.

Manny Machado arrived at Camden Yards on Tuesday afternoon, confident that he was ready to return to the club's starting lineup after offseason knee surgery and a tedious rehabilitation process. But the Orioles' All-Star third baseman couldn't control the weather. Machado's highly anticipated season debut was delayed at least one day when the Orioles' game against the Pittsburgh Pirates was postponed because of rain and rescheduled for Thursday at 7:05 p.m. Before the postponement, the Orioles planned to start Machado at third base Tuesday following a three-game minor league rehab assignment with High-A Frederick.

Matt Tilley hasn't had much free time outside of practice this year. In fact, Gilman baseball coach Larry Sheets said the senior has taken just two days off since August -- both between the football and basketball seasons and none between the basketball and baseball seasons. Such is the life of a three-sport athlete. And he hasn't just participated in football, basketball and baseball -- he has excelled in all three. He played wide receiver and free safety for the Gilman football team that won the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference last fall, served as captain for the basketball team that was one win away from winning its second consecutive MIAA B Conference title in the winter and stars all over the field for the No. 10 Greyhounds in baseball.

Poly senior Eric Jarkowski is a three-time Baltimore City tennis champion, but this year he decided to go out for the Engineers baseball team. Coach Corey Goodwin said it isn't unusual for seniors to try out for the first time but added that it is unusual for him to keep a senior on as a rookie. "I'm surprised. It's hard to give a senior who is out for the first time a place on the team over a freshman or a sophomore, who you know will be contributing for two or three more years," Goodwin said.

Archbishop Spalding junior first baseman Nick Freeberger sits on a dugout bench. The evening sun is shining on his boyish face, and he smiles. It has been a good day. He helped his No. 2 Cavaliers to victory with a three-run home run. That would be enough to make most high school baseball players grin, but there is more behind this display of happiness than a single game. To look at him now, no one would suspect that a little more than a month ago, screws were ground into his head for a halo to support a broken neck, and that the chances of his playing baseball this season or perhaps ever were in doubt.

Members of the lacrosse community recalled the former Naval Academy player killed in Afghanistan this week as a tough player who, with his teammate brothers, was a respected competitor. Brendan Looney, 29, a Silver Spring native, was among nine U.S. military personnel killed in a helicopter crash Tuesday in southern Afghanistan. He was a lieutenant in the Navy SEALs and a 2004 Naval Academy graduate, according to the Military Times website. "When you played the Naval Academy, you always felt the presence of the Looneys on the field," said former University of Maryland men's lacrosse coach Dave Cottle, who lives in Edgewater.

The Woodlawn Middle School gym, with its basketball hoops, scoreboards and banners touting school pride, served as a backdrop Saturday for a memorial service honoring Lonnie L. Hill III, a 13-year-old alumnus. About 300 mourners sat before tables filled with photos of a smiling Lonnie posing in various baseball stances, one in front of Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen. "We are not in church, but we are having church right here," said Lonnie L. Hill Jr. "My son is not lost. He is in heaven." With words and soulful hymns, dozens of family, friends and teammates paid tribute to the boy who drowned in the Atlantic Ocean July 23 in South Carolina, while a attending a baseball tournament at the Ripken Experience complex in Myrtle Beach.
