With a lot of local attention over the weekend focused on running back Ray Rice's recent indictment on a charge of aggravated assault and Opening Day for the Orioles, some big news went unnoticed. The Ravens didn't sign running back LeGarrette Blount - and the Pittsburgh Steelers did. The two-year deal, which is reportedly worth $3.85 million, leaves the Ravens with a big hole and also means they'll have to face a new two-headed monster in Pittsburgh with Blount and Le'Veon Bell.

The first pitch of the 2014 baseball season came at 3:14 p.m., an 89 mph strike from Chris Tillman to Daniel Nava. The first out recorded was a grounder by Nava to Tillman, who threw to Orioles first baseman Chris Davis. The next Boston batter, second baseman Dustin Pedroia, picked up the game's first hit, a single to right field. Tillman then struck out David Ortiz on a 95 mph fastball for the game's first strikeout. Shortstop J.J. Hardy had the first Orioles hit, a liner to left field in the bottom of the first inning.

The path that brought Nelson Cruz to the orange carpet for Opening Day introductions at Camden Yards on Monday afternoon wasn't the one he imagined months ago when he became a free agent. But if there was any doubt in his mind whether he landed in the right place, those questions were answered quickly. As Cruz ran down the carpet before the Orioles' season opener against the defending World Series champion Boston Red Sox, Baltimore welcomed him with the long, exaggerated chant of his last name - “Cruuuuuzzzz” - a sound he had heard for several years from adoring fans in his former home ballpark playing for the Texas Rangers.

Max Eggerl was celebrating for two reasons Sunday. Blob's Park, the Bavarian beer and dance hall his family has owned and operated in Jessup for more than eight decades, was closing - for good this time, after temporarily shutting its doors between 2007 and 2009. And on the afternoon of the hall's last night, the 68-year-old, longtime bachelor married his fiance. The polka dancing throngs who patronize the hall every weekend joined the reception around 4:30 p.m., and the party continued well into the night.

Playing a slow-down offense that ran lots of time off the clock, Boston College's women's lacrosse team gave Maryland its toughest game of the season Saturday. In the end, however, the Terps were the ones who milked the clock to victory. The No. 4 Eagles had possession about 22 minutes of the second half, but after Erin Collins gave the No. 2 Terps a 10-9 lead with 4:19 left, Maryland's Beth Glaros (Wilde Lake) won the next draw. The Terps then stalled away the rest of the game at Maryland's Field Hockey & Lacrosse Complex to improve to 13-0 overall and 4-0 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

If the announced 1,023 at the PNC Lacrosse Invitational on Saturday were not wet enough after the opener of the doubleheader between No. 4 St. Paul's and Haverford (Pa.), they surely were soaked by the second game of the event, featuring No. 2 McDonogh and Gonzaga (D.C.). Representing the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic association A Conference, McDonogh showed sure footing, even in the rain, against the three-time defending Washington Catholic Athletic Conference champions. The Eagles (7-1)

Suk-min Yoon, the Orioles' free-agent right-hander from South Korea who appeared in two Grapefruit League games after securing his work visa earlier this month, pitched four innings in the Orioles' 4-3 win Saturday against their Triple-A affiliate, the Norfolk Tides. The game was canceled because of persistent rain after the Orioles batted in the top of the sixth. The 27-year Yoon, who has already been sent down to Triple-A and added to Norfolk's rotation, pitched against the Tides lineup and allowed four hits and two runs while walking none and striking out two. He faced the minimum number of batters in three of his innings, but allowed three hits and two runs in the third, which ended with two outs.

SARASOTA, Fla.  - Amid one of the greatest offensive seasons in team history, Orioles manager Buck Showalter was already trying to temper expectations swirling around Chris Davis. At least three times last September, Showalter told reporters that they shouldn't expect Davis to duplicate his banner 2013 season in which he hit a franchise-record 53 homers, drove in 138 runs and finished third in the American League Most Valuable Player voting. That bar was set just incredibly high, the manager would say. Showalter was trying to protect his 28-year-old first baseman, trying to make sure that he doesn't put too much pressure on himself or be affected by the other's expectations.
