The Baltimore region's housing market posted the fourth straight year of average price declines in 2011 as the number of home sales hit a low not seen in at least a decade and a half. The average home sold last year in the metro area changed hands for about $262,000, down 4 percent compared with 2010, according to a Baltimore Sun analysis of preliminary figures released Tuesday by Metropolitan Regional Information Systems. Home sales also dropped 4 percent. The roughly 22,000 homes sold in the region — Baltimore and its five surrounding counties — represent the smallest number on record at MRIS, which began tracking the region in 1997.

Skittish homebuyers ran up against sellers unwilling to budge on prices in February, keeping the number of homes sold in metropolitan Baltimore at one of its lowest monthly levels this decade, statistics released yesterday show. Fewer than 1,100 homes sold in the Baltimore area last month, a drop of more than 31 percent compared with a year earlier, real estate tracker Metropolitan Regional Information Systems Inc. said.

Alberto Castillo, Orioles catcher What do you remember about your last major league home run? It was 2005 off Arthur Rhodes, a walk-off home run in Kansas City. That's a good memory of that day. A Sunday afternoon. I got a lot of phone calls because I slid into home plate. I was hiding from all my teammates who were trying to slap me on my head. I wanted to get down and try to avoid them, but they were hitting me. It was funny. Everybody was asking me, "How can you slide into home plate?"

On the field: Kevin Young angered some Orioles when he slid extremely hard on a force play at second base Thursday night, forcing second baseman Roberto Alomar to leap out of harm's way, and Young committed another breach of etiquette last night. On a play at the plate, Young slid hard into catcher Gregg Zaun, even though his path took him far away from home; after the collision, Young had to reach several feet to touch home plate.In the dugout: With Alomar not starting, Cal Ripken took over the third spot in the order against left-hander Chris Haney, with Rafael Palmeiro staying in the cleanup spot and Bobby Bonilla at No. 5. Jeffrey Hammonds, out of the starting lineup the last four games, was in left field last night.

For 162 years until it fell into the sea in 1926, the landmark Cape Henlopen, Del., lighthouse had warned mariners away from the treacherous shoals that surround the entrance to Delaware Bay.For many years, it was not only the tallest structure in Sussex County, Del., but guarded the entrance to one of the nation's busiest commercial estuaries.When constructed by the British in 1764, the tower was a mile from shore facing the Hen and Chickens shoals, named for a large shoal surrounded by smaller ones.
