Most of us have never caught a home run at a Major League Baseball game, which is why it's absolutely amazing that a 17-year old Orioles fan named Tim Anderson caught one in three straight games during this week's series against the White Sox at Camden Yards. The leaping grab he made to secure Alexei Ramirez's homer on Thursday night was very impressive, and the feat caught the eye of MLB.com and the "SportsCenter" crew. [ Via D.C. Sports Bog ]

For decades, schools, teachers and families were very happy with schools starting after Labor Day ( "Late start a non-starter," Sept. 2). It meant that families did not have to end a vacation early to come home for three days of school and then have three days more vacation! There is plenty of time in the school calendar to put those three days back in where they used to be - or another place if preferred. As for "forcing a longer summer break," I doubt that most families would regret the change back.

The idyllic scene Amanda Schmidt envisions on a recent Monday afternoon sounds less like a music festival and more like a serene, anything-goes camping trip with hundreds of open-minded friends, both new and old. She sees attendees playing basketball and taking dips in the pool, while others watch a stand-up comedian before heading to the woods to observe art installations. She pictures viewers enthralled by a theater performance in a barn, as many others watch Baltimore musicians like Dan Deacon, Matmos and other acts perform on multiple stages.

Baltimore County public schools will close three days earlier than planned this year because of unused emergency closing days, a county school spokeswoman said. Classes will end three hours early on Monday, June 12 and Tuesday, June 13, according to school officials. June 13 will be the last day of classes for all students. Chief communications officer Kara Calder said yesterday that reducing the current school year by three days would allow the school system to meet the state's requirement of 180 school days and 1,170 school hours.

Robert Gay graduated from Calvert Hall in 1978. In an email to alumni and others, school President Thomas Zoppo said Josephine died in Friday's massacre, three days after her seventh birthday. "Our particular thoughts and prayers go out to the Newtown ... community, most especially Bob, his wife Michele, and daughters Sophia and Marie," Zoppo said in a statement.

In almost any other year, three days of rain in October would have had Marylanders crying for relief. This time, it was the relief - a squishy, sopping gift from gloriously gray skies. The first three-day stretch of measurable rain in the Baltimore region since May has soaked the region with 1 to 3 inches of precipitation. The 1.13 inches that fell yesterday at Baltimore-Washington International Airport broke a 97-year- old record for the date. In all, the three days of rain left a total of 2.08 inches at BWI through 5 p.m. yesterday, according to the National Weather Service.

Rookie right-hander Kevin Gausman, who was eligible to return to the Orioles from the minor leagues Tuesday, is a candidate to start Sunday against the Boston Red Sox, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. Gausman, who is 3-2 with a 3.86 ERA in five starts for the Orioles this season, threw a bullpen session Monday at short-season Single-A Aberdeen, and he will have an abbreviated outing for the IronBirds on Wednesday. He last started Friday in the first game of the doubleheader against the Tampa Bay Rays at Camden Yards.

Todd Green never expected to be the public face of bicycle safety. He's not even a huge cycling fan. But as he and girlfriend Katie Pohler took a bike ride down the Baltimore-Annapolis Trail on Saturday, they became the fifth and sixth cyclists injured in a three-day span in Anne Arundel County in accidents between cars and bikes. Pohler, a 23-year-old college student, remains at Maryland Shock Trauma Center, while Green, sporting scrapes on his forehead and legs, traveled to Annapolis on Monday to join police at a news conference urging both drivers and bicyclists to pay attention and follow the rules of the road "Motorists and bicyclists have rights and responsibilities," said Anne Arundel Police Chief Kevin Davis, wearing the shorts and polo shirt uniform worn by the county's bike patrol.

Before Thursday's series opener against the Toronto Blue Jays at Camden Yards, Orioles manager Buck Showalter took a step back from his statement Wednesday that a six-man rotation could be a possibility once right-hander Miguel Gonzalez returns from the disabled list. Gonzalez, who threw 4 1/3 scoreless innings in a minor league rehabilitation start for Double-A Bowie on Wednesday can be activated as early as Sunday, but he likely wouldn't return until Monday. Showalter also said he'd like to keep Wei-Yin Chen on schedule, and the left-hander is expected to make his next start Monday against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field.

For top-seeded Duke, No. 5 Denver, No. 6 Notre Dame and No. 7 Maryland, Saturday's semifinal round of the NCAA tournament at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore takes center stage in terms of preparation and focus. But for two of those teams, Monday's title game is nearly as imposing. Championship weekend presents the two programs that advance to the tournament final with the unique dilemma of going all-out in Saturday's semifinals, recovering physically on Sunday, and finding enough in the fuel tank to play in Monday's final.

QUECREEK, Pa. - Safe in the embrace of the families to whom they had already written final notes of love, the nine men freed yesterday morning from their flooded coal mine hungrily sought what they had missed most during the three days they were trapped underground: a beer, a chew of tobacco and the surest sign from above that one is alive for another day. "He couldn't wait to see the sunrise ... and he wouldn't sleep until he saw it," said John Moryken,...

The first day of practice arrives a little earlier this fall and public school football coaches could not be happier to get started Wednesday instead of waiting until Saturday. "For us, it's vital," said Franklin coach Anthony Burgos, whose team kicks off Sept. 6 against Calvert Hall. "We're opening our season with a team that's already been practicing a week and a half. For us to get these extra three days allows us to prepare more for our opening game. " Those three days give coaches back the time they lost last fall when the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association implemented newly legislated rules for gradually acclimatizing athletes to the sometimes-searing August heat and humidity that can be deadly when athletes are not used to it. Coaches still had three weeks to prepare for their season opener last year, but less practice time in the early days erased about 15 hours of preseason work.

When the three-day draft ended and the Ravens had made the last of their nine selections, there was just as much talk about what needs they didn't address as those they did. Despite saying there is a wide receiver the Ravens could take in every round, general manager Ozzie Newsome didn't select one with any of his original eight picks, though the team did trade for a seventh-round pick and select local product Michael Campanaro (River Hill)....

And on the fourth day, the Orioles played. They won, watched it rain, and then they won again at nearly 1 a.m. with a walkoff homer by Matt Wieters in the 10th inning. After a scheduled day off Monday, followed by consecutive rainouts Tuesday and Wednesday - the first time they've been postponed consecutively since 2004, and the first time it has happened at Camden Yards since 2000 - the Orioles and the Pittsburgh Pirates finally played on what was supposed to be a mutual day off Thursday.
