Double-A Bowie right fielder Ronnie Welty had a night to remember Thursday night, hitting two home runs and driving in a career-high eight runs in the Baysox's 17-2 trouncing of the Harrisburg SenatorsĀ at Prince George's Stadium. The 24-year-old Welty, who was the Orioles' 20th-round selection in 2008, opened his night with a solo homer in the third inning, then hit a three-run triple in the fifth, followed by a three-run homer in the sixth. He finished his night with a sacrifice fly in the seventh.

Ronnie Welty understands where he is in pro baseball's hierarchy. The Single-A Delmarva right fielder is flying under the prospect radar. "That's how I kind of feel," said Welty, who is leading the Shorebirds with a .303 average (90-for-297) and 45 RBIs and is tied for the club lead with seven homers. "Every game is an opportunity to show what I've got and to turn some heads in the future." This status is nothing new for Welty, whom the Orioles selected in the 20th round of the 2008 draft.

It was more than 20 years ago when Judy Welty won her first harness race.The year was 1970 when she drove a horse named "Worthy Lad" to victory in a race at the Carlisle (Pa.) Fair. It was a special race and a special horse to Welty."It was my very first race, and I had a really good horse named Worthy Lad," she recalled. "In fact, he's about 25 or 26 now and stillkickin' around with us."And while "Worthy Lad" no longer is racing, the 43-year-old Welty is as active as ever.Welty now races only about three times a year, having turned her attention more to training racehorses, mostly pacers and some trotters, and blacksmithing at the family's farm.

Fast forward: Bill Welty, who runs the research side of San Francisco-based Volpe Welty & Co., rarely puts his name on research reports. When he does, it usually means he has hit on something that will become news sometime in the future. This time, it's the videographic industry. "Videographic" refers to a new generation of video hardware and software that is putting more pizzazz and realistic color into everything from corporate presentations and desktop corporate-training manuals to videogames.

BIOGRAPHY EUDORA WELTY: A BIOGRAPHY By Suzanne Marrs. Harcourt. 672 pages After a reductive 1998 biography by Ann Waldron and an insulting New Yorker article by Claudia Roth Pierpont, it's heartening to report that a new biography of Eudora Welty captures the humorous and unconventional spirit of one of the South's greatest writers. In Eudora Welty: A Biography, Suzanne Marrs manages to put the life and work of Welty in proper perspective, with the aid of numerous letters that are being made public for the first time.

WASHINGTON - Literary scholars often pore over early works of important writers, intent on finding the themes, preoccupations and imagery that would later become so familiar. The renowned Southern Gothic writer Eudora Welty gave scholars something more to chew on. Before publication of Welty's first collection of short stories, she considered a career in photography. As a young woman in the Depression, Welty traveled her home state of Mississippi (with forays to New Orleans and New York City)

When I arrived for my interview with Eudora Welty, the renowned writer already was seated at a table in the hotel dining room, drinking coffee. She greeted me with a smile and then apologized for being early, explaining she couldn't resist the chance to "overhear" the kind of stories people told one another over breakfast. "I've already heard one or two good ones," she said. Listening to people talk, she told me on that warm autumn day in 1988, was something she'd enjoyed all her life.

THE HIGHLY respected American writer Eudora Welty, who died Sunday at a hospital in Mississippi, was widely considered one of the 20th century's best American writers. Because she lived through most of it, dying at age 92, this assessment is as literal as it is hyperbolic. The high-water mark of her literary career came in 1973, when she won a Pulitzer Prize for her novel, The Optimist's Daughter. Like Emily Dickinson before her, Ms. Welty was one of those rare writers who could offer a tremendous output, a world of work, without ever really leaving her home.

There is a special symmetry in George and Gwyn Welty's home in Westminster.It's not just the curved masonry over the garage that matches the curves in the big windows that span the front of the house. It is also the balance that came with moving the furniture and personal collections of three families into one dream home.In 1995, the Weltys inherited her parents' and grandparents' homes. The couple lived a block from her parents' three-bedroom rancher, and the thought of seeing anyone else come out the front door was unbearable, said Mrs. Welty.
