When Atticus Cody first came to stay in Ron Hansen's imagination, the character did not yet have a troubled son, a dead wife, or much of a story to tell. It was 1983 and all Mr. Hansen had was a brief description of a man listening to the radio at day's end.A lot happens in 13 years. In 1991, Mr. Hansen published a slender novel about a young novitiate, "Mariette in Ecstasy," ZTC which received glowing reviews, sold surprisingly well and was made into a movie, to be released this year.But Atticus never went away, hanging on to become the title character of Mr. Hansen's latest novel, in which a 67-year-old Colorado man goes to Mexico after his son commits suicide in a town called Resurrection.

I offhandedly tweeted that Manny Machado might be the most exciting ballplayer to come through Baltimore in 30 years. Which led to a quick mental review of the other candidates to see if I was crazy. The verdict?   Well first, let's talk about Machado. Our baseball beat guy, Eduardo A. Encina, noted that he's only the fourth Orioles player to start on Opening Day at age 20 or younger . The other players in that company - Brooks Robinson, Ron Hansen and Boog Powell - give you a sense of how important a distinction it is. Hansen went on to be a Rookie of the Year and a very good major league shortstop.

Orioles third baseman Manny Machado will make his first career Opening Day start today against the Rays. Machado, 20, joins Brooks Robinson (19 in 1957, 20 in 1958), Ron Hansen (20 in 1958) and Boog Powell (20 in 1962) as the only Orioles players to make an Opening Day start at the age of 20-or-under. The last 20-or-younger Orioles player to play in an Opening Day game was Wally Bunker on April 13, 1965. Machado, who joined the team last August from Double-A Bowie, will bat second in the Orioles lineup today.

Nov.19, 1991: "The whole season, it just seemed like I couldn't do anything wrong," Cal Ripken Jr. says in winning his second American League Most Valuable Player Award. Ripken (34 home runs, 114 RBIs, .323 batting average) edges slugger Cecil Fielder of the second-place Detroit Tigers. Says Fielder: "I've lost to somebody who played on a sixth-place team. It's a joke, as far as I'm concerned. " Nov. 21, 1977: Eddie Murray, 21, the Orioles' designated hitter and first baseman, takes AL Rookie of the Year honors after a stellar season in which he batted .283 with 27 home runs.

Gus Triandos, a brawny slugger who won the hearts of Orioles fans starved for someone to cheer for in the 1950s, died Thursday at his home in San Jose, Calif. He was 82. "My father died in his sleep," his daughter, Lori Luna, said. "He'd been dealing with congestive heart failure for 10 years. It was hard for him to get up. "His heart just gave out. " A catcher and four-time All Star, Triandos played with the Orioles from 1955 through 1962 and was inducted into the team's Hall of Fame in 1981.

Orioles Magic was strictly an illusion. Pennant Fever had yet to be diagnosed, at least in this city. Spitting tobacco juice was the norm. And wild cards were something that only made it tough to figure what you had in your poker hand.Such was life for the Orioles of the 1950s, when Baltimore was strictly a second division baseball team.This weekend at Essex Community College, 25 players from that era, who earned their orange-and-black stripes before Cal Ripken Jr. was even born, are gathering to swap stories, renew acquaintances, sell their autographs for $7 a pop (this is the '90s, after all)

You see the jerseys every time the Orioles play at Camden Yards, often on boys born 20 years after the man shelved his famous mitt - No. 5. Robinson. The combination of that name and that number will always stir the souls of those who watched Brooks Robinson make impossible play after impossible play along the third-base line at Memorial Stadium. But even their children and grandchildren, who never glimpsed his magician's act, have heard the stories of Robinson's kindness - the way anybody could run into him at the mall and receive not only an autograph but a few minutes of genial conversation with a Hall of Famer.
