" Frank Robinson is quoted as coining that phrase during an interview with Time Magazine in July 1973, which is to say you wouldn't expect him to put too much stock in the Orioles' 12-7 start to this season. But Robinson - who will be immortalized with a statue at Camden Yards on Saturday - said he feels the organization is on the upswing. “I think this team is headed in the right direction,” Robinson said in an interview Saturday when he attended the President's Cup championship at Camden Yards . “They're building.

On Wednesday, the sunny, breezy first day of spring, City Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young walked up to a podium inside the Warehouse at Camden Yards and started to sniff the air. Young asked an audience that included area high school players and coaches, Orioles team officials and local politicians if they got a whiff of what he was smelling, too, before exclaiming: "That's the smell of baseball in the air.

The University of Maryland, Baltimore County's chess team lost its bid yesterday for a fifth national championship, and, as tends to be the case for any brazen team accustomed to winning on its competition's grandest stage, talk immediately turned to next year.

As soon as my husband walks through the front door, I usually can tell whether the high school baseball team he helps coach has won a game. A slow shuffle into the kitchen means a loss. A hearty hello means a win. But lately, wins by double digits have left him feeling defeated. His team is participating in the second annual President's Cup, a tournament in which nine of Baltimore's public high school baseball teams compete against seven private city school teams, with the championship game to be held next Saturday at Camden Yards - pretty heady stuff for any kid. The goals of the tournament, initiated by Baltimore City Council PresidentBernard C. "Jack" Young, are to reignite a passion for baseball among the city's youth, raise money to renovate city ball fields (as of March 24, it had raised $166,000)

Players for both Gilman and Mount St. Joseph will be trying to control their emotions Saturday when they meet in a rematch of the inaugural President's Cup final Saturday at Camden Yards. The two long-time Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference rivals will be trying to take in the scene and dwell on the moment at the second-annual event. But the teams will be approaching the game differently. A year ago, Gilman won the President's Cup title but turned around a week later and lost to the Gaels in an MIAA A Conference game.
