No heavy-duty bonus to sign. Not even enough money to buy a secondhand car or promises of a partially paid college education. Merely an opportunity. That's what Tony Saunders wanted if only a long-shot chance to prove his ability.He believed in himself if others didn't. To be placed in the ever-demanding arena of baseball was all he asked. And then to see what would happen -- the painful lot that befell him -- after he earned his way to the major leagues as a gifted left-handed pitcher of unlimited promise, became a shock of sudden despair.

John Moore works tough hours - 2 a.m. to 2 p.m. four days a week driving a delivery truck for Stroehmann Bakeries. The Glen Burnie resident often goes to bed no later than 8 p.m. so he can awaken by 1 a.m. and get to work in the middle of the night. He has done that for about 18 years. Still, at 58, Moore makes room for baseball and softball - at least 20 hours a week. He's in his 25th year as president of the Glen Burnie Boys Baseball League Inc., which also operates the Glen Burnie Girls Softball League.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The coat and tie Tony Saunders wears are a practical disguise. They have a snug, professional fit on a man who, at 29, is trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his life. Selling stocks, bonds and mutual funds hardly gives you the same adrenaline buzz as throwing a baseball 95 mph for a strike, with 20,000 fans screaming their approval. That was another life, another time. Saunders, a standout at Glen Burnie High School in the early 1990s, tries hard not to look back, though it's impossible not to feel an occasional emotional twitch.

BOSTON - Orioles pitcher Jason Johnson, who reversed a traumatic 2000 season by becoming his staff's leading winner despite dealing with juvenile diabetes, was named co-recipient yesterday of the Tony Conigliaro Award presented annually to a major-league player who overcomes adversity in the spirit of the late Boston Red Sox right fielder. Johnson, 28, suffers from an acute strain of the disease that must be monitored regularly. He adopted an insulin pump last season that he wore at all times except during games.
