For most of us, a trip to New York City means there will be rides on the Subway. Visits to Washington, D.C., are much more palatable when parking problems are traded for train rides on the Metro. Go to San Francisco or Oakland, Calif., and odds are a ride on the BART (short for Bay Area Transit) will be part of the itinerary. Chicago has its L (short for elevated). Boston has the T (short for transportation). Here in the greater Baltimore region, though, train transport is a realistic option only for commuters whose schedules are as regimented and predictable as the days of the week.

Major League Lacrosse announced today that the defending champion Chesapeake Bayhawks and the Rochester Rattlers will play a regular-season game at Al Lang Stadium in St. Petersburg, Fla., on Saturday, April 27, at 7:30 p.m. MLL returns to the Sunshine State for the second time, after a successful All-Star Game in Boca Raton last season, as it contemplates future expansion. The game will serve as the Rattlers' home opener. Al Lang Stadium was the past spring training home to the Orioles, New York Yankees, St. Louis Cardinals and Tampa Bay Rays.

The architectural style is "Florida Picturesque," and the baseball amenities make Ed Smith Stadium a field of dreams, but there really is only one way to describe the dramatic restoration project that has created a beautiful new home away from home for the Orioles. Long overdue. Two decades after they began their quest for a new all-purpose spring training facility, the Orioles will christen Ed Smith Stadium on Tuesday afternoon against the Tampa Bay Rays in what will be a celebration for an organization that has endured substandard and outdated spring facilities for years.

Janet Marie Smith was instrumental in the design of Camden Yards. She oversaw the improvements at Fenway Park in Boston and figured prominently in the transformation of Centennial Olympic Stadium into Turner Field, the home of the Atlanta Braves. But her latest challenge — the $31.2 million renovation of the Orioles' spring training home at Ed Smith Stadium and Twin Lakes Park in Sarasota — has broken new ground for the renowned architect and urban planner. "It's the first time in our career we are ordering steel the same day we are ordering concession equipment," said Smith, the Orioles' vice president of planning and development.

When Orioles manager Buck Showalter arrived at Ed Smith Stadium a week ago, he took a walk around the complex and surveyed how much work still needed to be done before his team's first workout Monday. "I got here [last] Sunday at about 5 or 6 o'clock, walked around by myself and kind of went, 'Damn,'" Showalter said. "But you see how much progress they've made. It's unbelievable the difference the way it looks from 10 o'clock in the morning to 4 in the afternoon. They've been killing themselves down here.

Almost two months after the Orioles expected to gain approval to begin construction of a new spring training complex in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., they appear to be drawing closer to a resolution. A Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman confirmed this week that officials are reviewing documents submitted by the city of Fort Lauderdale, which could be the final step in making a decision. The Orioles want to tear down and rebuild 48-year-old Fort Lauderdale Stadium, which has served as their spring home since 1996, but they need the FAA's consent because it sits on airport property.

When all the pomp and circumstance was over and the orange ribbon that had been spread across home plate was cut to officially open the new Ed Smith Stadium, the Orioles took the field and sparked hope that it wasn't all just window dressing. They were lucky they didn't break any windows in the process. Outfielder Nick Markakis, perhaps the face of the franchise, deposited two balls that bounced toward the player's parking lot past right field. Vladimir Guerrero, the Orioles' new slugger, hit one that nearly clipped the Tampa Bay Rays' team bus in left-center field, and multitalented center fielder Adam Jones cleared everything with a tape-measure shot to left.
