Orioles hitting coach Terry Crowley can't believe it has been 30 years. He was a 26-year-old platoon outfielder when manager Earl Weaver inserted him into the 1973 Opening Day lineup as something called a designated hitter. The DH rule will celebrate its 30th anniversary today, probably with just a few close friends and relatively little fanfare. The decision by baseball owners to take the pitcher out of American League batting orders was controversial from the start, but Crowley didn't mind it a bit. "I loved it," he said.

The opening of a Canadian dam was delayed three days so that divers could search during the weekend for the body of a drowning victim from Cockeysville. Tommy Davis, 21, apparently drowned July 15 while attempting to swim across mile-wide Duncan Lake, north of Kaslo, British Columbia. The lake is part of a reservoir system and is upstream from the dam. Vancouver-based B.C. Hydro delayed opening the dam to allow rescue divers to continue searching for the body, said Joan Davis, the victim's mother.

A Baltimore County couple are expected to return home today from the Canadian wilderness after an unsuccessful and costly attempt to recover their son's body from a remote mountain lake where officials say he drowned in a swimming accident. Paul and Joan Davis of Cockeysville told friends and a British Columbia newspaper that they were forced to hire their own dive team after the Royal Canadian Mounted Police failed to provide adequate resources to the search for their son, Tommy Davis, a 21-year-old environmentalist who was trekking through the rugged Selkirk Mountains on his way to Alaska.

They don't have the big names, but the Frederick Keys have the best record in the Orioles' farm system so far.Behind Chad Paronto's six scoreless innings, the Keys won for the fifth time in seven games last night, downing Salem, 6-0, before a record 7,484 fans for the home opener in Frederick.Paronto (2-0) has pitched 11 innings without allowing a run.He survived a shaky start when catcher Chip Alley threw out Juan Sosa, the Salem leadoff hitter, on a steal attempt. Paronto walked three in the inning.

Early last season, Tommy Davis was hampered by shoulder miseries and got off to a slow start on offense at Rochester.But he recovered physically, righted himself and finished with 15 home runs and a .304 Triple-A batting average for the Governor's Cup champions.His reward? A demotion to Double-A Bowie.Not that his bat has any ailments. The Orioles' first pick in the 1994 draft is highly regarded in the organization as a right-handed hitter with potential for average and power.And he didn't do badly afield, either, leading the league's first basemen with a .994 fielding percentage and committing only six errors.
