The Baltimore Museum of Industry was transformed into a sports mecca at the "Mid-Summer Sports Fest" to raise more than $35,000 for two scholarship organizations, CollegeBound Foundation and Joe Sandusky Fund. More than 600 guests were greeted by party co-hosts WBAL-TV sports director Gerry Sandusky and Baltimore Raven Jamie Sharper. An array of games awaited: a batting cage, basketball hoops, putting greens, a makeshift climbing "mountain," pool table, pingpong, tennis, even fencing. If that wasn't enough, you could listen in on the sports radio show being broadcast live from the site.

Sandusky spoke of his life growing up in the early years of the NFL and emphasized the importance of living your life, finding your legacy and embracing it. "Harford County Public Library was honored to have Gerry Sandusky speak at the Abingdon library.

Most parents have faced that moment of recognition that their kids have grown so quickly that time, as former Doobie Brother Michael McDonald once sang, has become "a riddle, where days turn into years, and years into the blink of an eye."That blink of an eye came at Channel 11 sports director Gerry Sandusky perhaps sooner than he imagined, and because of it, Sandusky is putting a very promising career as a radio football analyst on Maryland games on hold, to spend more time with his wife and two children.

Some of the best pictures of Sunday night's Cal Ripken end-of-streak festival came courtesy of a tip, a hunch and a gamble, and once again, Channel 11 was the beneficiary of all of the above.Gerry Sandusky, the station's sports director and main sports anchor, said he got a call at the station around 6: 45 p.m. Sunday -- more than an hour before game time -- that Ripken was going to call a halt to his consecutive-games streak, and Sandusky got moving.Sandusky, who also does duty as the main sports talker on WBAL (1090 AM)

Here's a quiz: Name five great radio baseball broadcasters. Piece of cake, right?Now, name one great football radio broadcaster. OK, Chuck Thompson shows up on both lists, but can you name another?The reason you can't is simple. Football, with its bursts of action, larger-than-life figures and easier-to-follow ball, is a much more conducive game for television's purposes than baseball, whose natural gaps between plays allow for the more personable contact of radio.Still, football can be a pleasing game to listen to on the radio, provided, of course, you find the right announcers.

Almost from the moment that the news arrived about the Ravens' new radio home with WBAL (1090 AM), the speculative fingers started pointing at Gerry Sandusky as the team's new play-by-play voice. It may not be polite, but those fingers point at him still. Though nothing is official, word is filtering out of TV Hill that Sandusky, WBAL/Channel 11's sports anchor, will indeed get the job. "I'm hearing that, too," Sandusky said this week, "but I don't have a contract yet." Jeff Beauchamp, WBAL Radio's station manager and vice president, said he expects to have an announcing team named within four to five weeks.

Though no one will be holding telethons for them any time soon, the life of the local weeknight sportscaster is much more difficult than it was 20 years ago.You can blame ESPN's "SportsCenter" and a greater emphasis on news in newscasts for that. "SportsCenter," which airs for 7 1/2 hours a day, and CNN's sports programming and its ticker service on the Headline network, to a lesser degree, can give the rabid sports fan all the information he or she needs, without the clutter of news and weather.

Gerry Sandusky takes you to the third floor of his northern Baltimore County home and points to a book shelf. "There it is," he says. Huh? That's where he keeps his Ravens Super Bowl ring? Where's the glass display case with the spotlight shining on it? And the velvet ropes to keep the riff-raff at arm's length? And maybe a glowering security goon standing by so no one tries any funny business? I have made this trip to see what Sandusky, the long-time WBAL-TV sports director and Ravens broadcaster, plans to do with his Super Bowl ring.

It is horrifying to open a newspaper and see Jerry Sandusky again ("Sandusky: Paterno wouldn't allow pedophile," March 26). Just when you thought the Penn State sexual abuse scandal was over, Mr. Sandusky is giving interviews to a crazed documentary filmmaker, John Ziegler. To know that Mr. Ziegler is getting coverage for the nonsense he is pursuing - namely, that Joe Paterno did not know Mr. Sandusky was a pedophile - is just one more indignity to be endured by sexual abuse victims everywhere.

The report by former FBI Director Louis Freeh castigated the men in the upper reaches of Penn State's administration, as well football coach Joe Paterno, for not acting in 1998 when they learned that a mother had complained to campus police that assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was showering with her 11-year-old son in the football locker room. Mr. Freeh suggests, rightly, that more than a decade of sexual abuse of young boys would have been prevented if Mr. Sandusky had been stopped then.

Here's hoping that news of guilty verdicts in the Jerry Sandusky case took a huge bite out of the audience ABC's  "20/20"  expected for its hour-too-long interview with Rielle Hunter Friday night. I say that because then ABC News will have gained nothing for debasing itself by giving an hour of prime time to this wretched woman so that she could sell more copies of her new book. In fact, I am really hoping ABC News lost some credibility with viewers for sticking with this tabloid con job instead of breaking away at some point to cover the real news that the former Penn State coach was found guilty on 45 of 48 counts in connection with the sexual molestation of minors.

Gerry Sandusky, who anchors Channel 11's weeknight sportscasts and is the host of WBAL Radio's nighttime sports talk show, will be relinquishing his regular radio duties next month. Sandusky, who has been critical of the Orioles during his 2 1/2-year stint as "SportsLine" host, is being moved in part to accommodate a portion of WBAL's new, three-year contract with the Orioles, though the move was not dictated by team officials. "They assured me that it was not at their [Orioles'] insistence," Sandusky said.

Clearly, neither defense attorney Joe Amendola, who has represented Jerry Sandusky in the Penn State sexual abuse trial, nor anyone close to him has ever been a victim of sexual child abuse ("Sandusky's wife: Accuser conniving," June 20). Whether or not the charges against Mr. Sandusky prove to be true, this case needs to be handled with the utmost professionalism. Mr. Amendola's remarks including "stay tuned," and "it's like a soap [opera]," etc., show a complete lack of understanding of the seriousness of cases like this one. It is one thing to believe in your client.

I couldn't do it again. Honest, I tried, but I just couldn't. I saw Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf on my TV screen at the top of the Ravens telecast Sunday, and I knew I couldn't spend another Sunday afternoon listening to dumb and dumber of CBS Sports without my head exploding. It was radical, I know, but after too many Sundays spent with Gumbel and Dierdorf, I dared to consider the possibility of actually enjoying a Ravens game over the airwaves. And so, I did what dozens of readers have been encouraging me to do all season: I watched images of the game on CBS, and I listened to the play-by-play and analysis on WBAL radio from Gerry Sandusky, Stan White and Qadry Ismail.
