NORFOLK, VA. -- You'd never know that this time last year fans were embracing the Big Apple and singing "New York, New York" at the end of every game. Now it's all Charm City, crab races on the video screen and "Thank God I'm a Country Boy." They even let loose with an "O" during the national anthem. Funny things happen in baseball's offseason. For the Triple-A Norfolk Tides last winter, it meant severing a 38-year relationship with the New York Mets and getting hitched to the Orioles.

Before he opted out of his minor league contract with the Orioles, veteran left-hander Randy Wolf unleashed a pitch that hit the suite level at Harbor Park in Norfolk. It seems like he did it on purpose. David Hall, who covers the Tides for The Virginian-Pilot, relayed a bizarre story in his piece on the Tides' 2-1 win Sunday . Hall said that in Wolf's last appearance, he warned manager Ron Johnson that something strange was going to happen. Hall wrote: During Game 1 on Saturday, he threw a pitch that sailed to the top of the grandstand and bounded off the facade of a suite.

Before Monday's game, the Orioles purchased the contract of right-hander Josh Stinson from Triple-A Norfolk to bolster a bullpen that was depleted after right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez's short outing Sunday against the Oakland Athletics. To make room for Stinson, the club optioned right-hander Brad Brach to the Tides. Brach threw 58 pitches in two innings Sunday and has a 5.40 ERA in 10 games for the Orioles this season. The Orioles transferred left-hander Johan Santana, who tore his left Achilles tendon on Friday, to the 60-day disabled list to clear space for Stinson on the 40-man roster.

The movie, "The Perfect Storm," is based upon a real incident in the fall of 1991, an event that is today synonymous with killer waves and lives lost at sea. As that storm churned away offshore in the Atlantic, I couldn't convince anyone it was a big story. People thought I was crazy. For years I've observed that the really bad storms, the ones that bring death and destruction, are largely not yelled about by the broadcast media. The worst false alarms are the ones trumpeted loud and long by the television stations in the last two weeks of August, when any ripple on the ocean during vacation season is accompanied by electronic media battery.

OCEAN CITY -- Jim Mathias, a sentimental soul, remembers growing up in Baltimore when it felt like the center of the known world. His family lived on 34th Street in Hampden. Mathias recalls Saturday afternoon triple features at the Ideal movie theater, road trips to the roller coaster rides at Gwynn Oak Park and cultural excursions all the way to the Greyhound bus station on Howard Street just to play the pinball machines. They're all gone now. Long ago, the youthful Mathias imagined they would remain forever.

A rare combination of persistent winds and a slowed Florida ocean current were the cause of unusually high tides in Maryland and all along the East Coast earlier this summer, scientists say. The two phenomena added several inches to as much as two feet to predicted high and low tides along the mid-Atlantic coast, and drew notice from coastal residents and scientists alike, according to a preliminary study released Monday by the National Oceanic and...

OCEAN CITY -- Storm-driven surf subsided today after a day of snapping at the sea wall, surging up to the boardwalk, nipping away at dunes, dune grass and fences dedicated just this week as part of a $44 million beach replenishment project.Tides surged 4 to 5 feet above normal highs yesterday afternoon, flooding much of the south end of Ocean City, the Inlet and most of the streets along the length of the bay side."It's the worst high tide since the 1962 northeaster," said Terence J. McGean, acting city engineer.

Norfolk outfielder Luis Terrero hit a grand slam in the top of the ninth inning Friday night, highlighting a seven-run rally that broke up a 3-3 tie and carried the Tides to a 10-3 victory over Louisville in an International League game. Terrero was one of five Norfolk batters to collect two hits in the win that enabled the up-and-down Tides to end their eight-game road trip with a 2-6 record. However, for one night at least, the Orioles' Triple-A affiliate not only flashed home run power but hitting throughout the lineup.

When my daughter was a freshman in high school, she shared a particularly uplifting experience from history class one day. In the middle of a lesson, a senior barged into the classroom with tears in his eyes and handed the teacher a letter. A smile spread across the teacher's face as he read in silence. The teacher then turned to the class and announced that the student had just received a full scholarship to an excellent college. The teen pointed toward the window and whispered, to the teacher, "If it hadn't been for you and this school, I'd be out on those streets selling drugs.

Suk-min Yoon, the Orioles' free-agent right-hander from South Korea who appeared in two Grapefruit League games after securing his work visa earlier this month, pitched four innings in the Orioles' 4-3 win Saturday against their Triple-A affiliate, the Norfolk Tides. The game was canceled because of persistent rain after the Orioles batted in the top of the sixth. The 27-year Yoon, who has already been sent down to Triple-A and added to Norfolk's rotation, pitched against the Tides lineup and allowed four hits and two runs while walking none and striking out two. He faced the minimum number of batters in three of his innings, but allowed three hits and two runs in the third, which ended with two outs.

Of the ideas for reducing violence in Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's State of the City address, the one with the greatest potential for immediate impact on Baltimore's skyrocketing homicide rate is her commitment to fully pursuing a set of crime fighting strategies known as Operation Ceasefire. Developed in Boston in the 1990s, Ceasefire is based on what is by now a familiar premise in Baltimore, that a disproportionate amount of violence is committed by a small and inter-related set of people.

Matt Hatton doesn't hide or run away from McDaniel's sub-.500 record in 2013. But the coach also can't help wondering what might have been had the team been on the positive side of some narrow defeats. The Green Terror was involved in nine games decided by two goals or fewer, and lost seven of them. Those results played a direct role in the team's 5-11 overall mark and 2-6 record in the Centennial Conference. “I think the real big difference for us between last year and the years before that is that we lost the majority of those one- or two-goal games, rather than winning them,” Hatton said.

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - For more than 30 years, scientists have searched in vain for a connection between tidal forces and earthquakes, hoping for clues to help predict when a fault is ready to slip. Now, researchers from UCLA and Japan have discovered that certain types of faults near coasts are more likely to let loose during high tides. The finding supports a theory about how nearby faults interact with each other that could be very important for understanding earthquakes in the San Francisco Bay area and other regions with several active faults.

A friend recently suggested a sure cure for stress, and this is a man with a job (head of a paramedic service) where the stress levels tend to redline quite often.What you do, he said, is check into the Tides Inn on a gorgeous fall weekend. Then when evening comes, order a cocktail and wander out to the veranda and watch the golden-reddish glow slowly drain from the sky over Carter's Creek and the scenic Rappahannock River near Irvington, Va.Then sit there over another cocktail, he said, and watch the lights in the big waterfront homes wink on and the boats with their running lamps silently ply the darkened channel.

Editorial from The Aegis | December 10, 2013
Walmart opposition may have won a victory in that the retail giant won't pursue an entrance and exit off of Route 924, but traffic in the area promises to get worse anyway. The harsh reality is that decisions made decades ago about the area on either side of Route 24 from Wheel Road south to I-95, and bounded on either side by Route 924 and Tollgate Road, will preclude any easing of traffic congestion for decades to come. Lately, Walmart has become a lightning rod for anger relating to concerns about the ever-increasing difficulty involved with navigating the area by car. The fear is Walmart's proposed move from its Constant Friendship site near the interchange to an expanded store between Routes 24 and 924 near Plumtree Road will increase the amount of traffic in the area.
