When Steve Schmoll failed to make the Maryland baseball team as a walk-on freshman catcher in 1999, he rebuilt his career from the ground up by using pilfered dirt. Schmoll, who pitched "about 10 innings" during his prep years at Rockville's Magruder High, thought his best chance to play at Maryland was if he were a pitcher. He received instruction from the Terps' staff, then went home and practiced. "I was working for an air conditioning company at the time, and I brought dirt home from new house jobs and built a mound in my backyard," he said.

Where is Paul Tagliabue when you need him?Every argument that the NFL used against Baltimore in expansion can be invoked by Major League Baseball to block the Montreal Expos from moving to the Washington area -- and without fear of an antitrust lawsuit.The Expos could become the first major-league team to relocate since the Senators left Washington in 1971. No doubt, Tagliabue the Sun King would steer them to his favorite virgin territory -- Charlotte, N.C.Orioles owner Peter Angelos suggested Richmond, Va., an unrealistic, almost comical wish.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Even in the bizarre world of George Steinbrenner's Yankees, Friday, July 28, 1995, will go down in the annals as one of the all-time crazies.Within a span of 90 minutes, the Yankees unloaded an unhappy and unproductive designated hitter, Danny Tartabull, and three minor-league pitchers, and added Cy Young winner David Cone and switch-hitting outfielder Ruben Sierra. The moves drastically change the face of the '95 Yankees as we know them.And to think, Darryl Strawberry is still supposed to fit in the picture somewhere.
