In June 1967, the Orioles wore shiny new World Series rings. Baltimore still had pro teams in basketball and ice hockey. And kids listened to pop music on transistor radios tuned to WCAO-AM. That month, The Evening Sun corralled 18 male "Prep Stars of the Week" at a restaurant atop the downtown Holiday Inn and named its first High School Athlete of the Year. Times change. On Tuesday at M&T Bank Stadium, that event will be held for the 40th time. A male and female Athlete of the Year will be selected from among The Sun's 76 weekly winners named during the school year.
