THE KIDS on the Arundel High School baseball team are playing nicely. It's the grown-ups who are causing trouble.Since she was seven, Becky Carlson, now 14, has been playing baseball with boys. Nobody has ever had a problem with that -- until now. All of a sudden, state and Anne Arundel County school athletic administrators are kicking up a stink over Becky, saying she ought to be playing girls' softball. Their argument: Federal regulations do not require that schools allow girls to play boys sports (and vice versa)

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.

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.

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.

The Clark twins, Travis and Tyler, are described by Hammond baseball coach Mike Lerner as "dramatically" different from each other in personality, but quite similar in nature when it comes to baseball. "Travis is more boisterous, more vocal," says Lerner, "while Tyler is more reserved. But they both play the game with the same intensity and dedication." Tyler, a first baseman, is batting .353, with two doubles and two home runs, and has yet to strike out. Travis, a right-handed pitcher, is hitting .500, with four doubles, four home runs and is 2-0 on the mound with 16 strikeouts in 10 innings.
