Hereford senior pitcher LeAnne Collins has improved in each of her four seasons playing varsity softball, and so have the Bulls. She believes it can make for a special season. A lefty on the mound and at the plate, where she's the team's leadoff batter, Collins has been the catalyst as the No. 6 Bulls have gone 8-1. As a pitcher, she's 7-0 and has struck out 76 batters in 38 innings. At the plate, she's batting .833 with 19 runs, 11 RBIs and 16 stolen bases. Control is her key when pitching, as she likes to keep batters guessing with pitch selection and location.

Some of the residents of the Rodgers Forge neighborhood that borders Towson University's softball stadium are alumni of the school and fans of the Tigers. They understand the university's desire to build a $2 million new facility this summer and bring the program up to NCAA Title IX standards. They just don't want it 25 feet from their backyards. The roughly two-dozen neighbors, who last month formed an ad-hoc committee to protest a new complex, rallied outside the university Saturday morning, saying the school has refused to negotiate with them on the plans.

Former Ravens safety Ed Reed stood in the middle of a makeshift softball diamond on a field he knows well and waved his arms as fans chanted his name. Reed, who played 11 seasons with the Ravens, has long said that Baltimore will always feel like home, even after his expected Hall of Fame playing career is over. When that will be, however, remains very much a mystery. Speaking at former teammate Lardarius Webb's charity softball game Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium, Reed said that he is preparing to play in the 2014 season.
