His manager, Earl Weaver , called him "the best leadoff man in the game," and who's to argue? In five years with the Orioles, Don Buford batted .270, ran the bases with ferocity and helped the club reach three World Series. It's no coincidence that, one year after Buford crashed the lineup, the Orioles won 101 games and the first of three straight American League pennants (1969-1971). Twice, he hit .300 or better in the postseason. In 1969, Buford made history as the first player ever to lead off a World Series with a home run, connecting off the New York Mets' Tom Seaver.

For Nancy and Bob Reigle, the call came down to America's Colonial showplace versus the Orioles in the playoffs. "We have wanted to go to Williamsburg for some time," said Nancy Reigle, a retired teacher in the Baltimore County public schools who had scheduled a trip to begin Oct. 20 - the day before the start of the World Series. "I was keeping an eye on the schedules, and then I noticed that the American League has home field advantage [for the World Series], and that they could be playing in Baltimore that Tuesday and Wednesday.

Orioles first baseman Chris Davis understands that there are going to be whispers, and that those will grow louder if he continues his torrid home run pace. He is, after all, a muscle-rippling power hitter with video-game home run totals. He knows the steroid accusations are inevitable and will accompany his pursuit of home run records this season. “I think it sucks that guys in our day and age have to answer for mistakes that guys have made in the past. But it is part of it,” said Davis, who has 33 home runs in his first 92 games for the Orioles this season.

I was a Maryland Transit Administration employee when Larry Hogan was former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s appointments secretary, and in my judgment many of their appointments at the MTA were questionable at best and in some cases a disaster. For example, a professional ice dancer was hired for a high-paying position despite his lack of qualifications for a position in transit - but he did keep a Darth Vader figurine in his office. Maybe Mr. Hogan could explain his rationale for hiring that employee?

Baltimore County Councilman Sam Moxley will not seek political office this year, he said Friday. When the Democrat announced earlier this year that he would leave the council after four terms representing Catonsville and Arbutus, he said he was considering a run for clerk of the court. He says now he has ruled that out. "I have thoroughly enjoyed my years in public service, and I will continue to look for ways to serve my community," Moxley said. "I am not sure where the future will lead me, but I am looking forward to the journey."

In a veterans-only meeting with coach John Harbaugh on Wednesday, Ray Lewis' message was: Cherish every game in December. After the Ravens' 48-3 rout of the Detroit Lions, the middle linebacker delivered some more advice: Run the football. The Ravens reverted to their power ground game, running for 308 yards, the second-most in team history, and scoring a team-record five rushing touchdowns. The one-game switch to last year's run-first philosophy came much to the delight of nearly everyone in the locker room.

An 18-year-old Baltimore County man is seeking the Republican nomination for comptroller. Brendan Madigan said he filed last week after considering a run for more than a year. Madigan said he could not "stand on the sidelines" while Maryland is run "into the ground." The Sparks resident said his campaign will focus on ending the "tax-and-spend mentality of those in Annapolis." Madigan served as the Baltimore County coordinator for Ron Paul's Campaign for Liberty and recently founded the blog GOP Resurgence.

The Boston Red Sox beat up the Orioles pretty harshly Friday night, winning, 12-3. But Orioles first baseman Chris Davis continued to make club history. Davis homered in the sixth inning against Boston right-hander Clay Buchholz for his 53rd of the season. That pads his single-season franchise record; he also set the mark for most home runs in a season in Baltimore with his 28th at Camden Yards in 2013. Hall of Famer Frank Robinson had 27 in 1966 at Memorial Stadium. Strangely, Davis is currently all by himself in 26th place for most homers in an MLB season.

As Gov. Martin O'Malley seeks to build support for a potential presidential campaign, a new poll conducted for The Baltimore Sun shows enthusiasm among voters in his home state is conspicuously low - and might be slipping. Despite high-profile victories in Annapolis and a growing national buzz about his future, nearly six in 10 Maryland voters said they would not back the governor if he decides to seek the Democratic nomination for president in 2016, while 14 percent said they would.

For play callers like the Ravens' Gary Kubiak, achieving offensive balance is an elusive pursuit, a challenging and often frustrating endeavor that prompts sleepless nights and almost constant second-guessing. When Kubiak spoke to reporters on Thursday, the Ravens' 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts four days earlier was still fresh on his mind, and the questions about why his offense ran the ball just 15 times in the game seemed as pertinent as ever. "Last weekend, it's the least amount of plays we've run in a game, the least amount of time we've been on the field.

Orioles center fielder Adam Jones admitted before Saturday's Game 2 of the American League Championship Series that he might need to be a little more patient at the plate for his team to get back into the series against the Kansas City Royals. Jones doesn't make any apologies for his aggressiveness at the plate, but he noted that the playoffs offer a different game, inherently smaller strike zones and more opportunity for batters to wait on their pitch to hit. And Jones has struggled in the postseason, entering the day just 5-for-42 with 11 strikeouts in 10 career playoff games.

An advisory group that advocates for MARC riders in Maryland has called on state officials and local transit operators to plan for special rail service between Baltimore and Washington in the event the Orioles make it to the World Series. The MARC Riders Advisory Council wrote a letter Thursday to Gov. Martin O'Malley — and sent copies to the Maryland Transit Administration, railroad CSX Transportation and several Maryland legislators — calling the lack of such planning unacceptable.

Salisbury's 37-34 overtime upset of then-No. 6 St. John Fisher last Saturday was punctuated by senior fullback J.D. Hook's 16-yard touchdown run. But the running game has been powering the offense all season. The Sea Gulls (2-2 overall and 1-1 in the Empire 8 Athletic Conference) have averaged 289.8 rushing yards thus far, seventh-best in Division III. They compiled 312 rushing yards against a Cardinals defense that had surrendered an average of 288.7 total yards prior to Saturday's contest.

Races in the Baltimore Running Festival will begin an hour earlier than originally scheduled because of the Orioles' deep run into the baseball postseason. In a letter to participants posted on the running festival's website , organizer Lee Corrigan wrote that start times were made earlier to "ensure all public safety personnel can be deployed in an organized fashion. " The festival, which includes a marathon, half-marathon, group relay, 5k and kids race, will stagger starting times between 7 a.m. and 8:45 a.m. on Oct. 18, the day the Orioles and Kansas City Royals would potentially play Game 7 of the American League Championship Series at Camden Yards.

Orioles slugger Chris Davis set a single-season club record Tuesday night with his 51st home run of the season, breaking Brady Anderson's mark set in 1996. Following the Orioles' 3-2 win over Boston on Tuesday night, Davis reflected on the historic night, the importance of the victory and the wild-card race: On hitting No. 51 I'm excited. I've said all along when you're hitting home runs and your team's not winning, it feels like it's kind of for nothing. I was obviously glad to tie the game there and for us to hang in there and get a run off Koji, that's something we've struggled to do in the past.

For NFL umpires, safety comes at a cost. They will be out of the line of fire — moving from the middle of the defense to several yards behind the quarterback — but their job won't be any easier. In many ways, it will be harder. "This is a radical change," said retired field official Ron Botchan, widely regarded as the best umpire in NFL history. "It's going to take some adjusting. But the owners wanted it, the competition committee wanted it and it's their ball, man."

Before he brushes his teeth in the morning these days, Royals manager Ned Yost reminds himself of one thing. “Before I even get out of bed, I tell myself, 'Let's have fun today,'” Yost said. “Remember where you're at and let's have fun.” These are the best of times for Yost, in his fifth season in the Royals' dugout. He's the first manager to lead the franchise the postseason since Dick Howser and the 1985 World Series championship team. Yost owns his share of rings as a member of the Atlanta Braves' staffs from 1991 through 2002, but his first managerial tenure in Milwaukee ended two weeks before the end of the 2008 regular season with the Brewers losing ground in the playoff chase.

The fastest man in baseball drives with caution. When Terrance Gore was a sophomore in high school, his mother spent about $500 on a 1980 El Camino, and her son restored it with care. He painted the car candy apple red, upgraded the engine and installed 22-inch chrome rims. “That's my baby,” Gore said. He treats his wheels with reverence. The vehicle resides under cover at his home in Georgia. No one is allowed to drive it. Gore expected to return home to his car after the minor-league season ended.
