Youth baseball player Ralph Warner recovering from scary injury

Youth baseball player Ralph Warner recovering from scary injury
Ralph Warner, 11, loves baseball. It's obvious from the way he talks about Major League Baseball players he idolizes, his favorite team - the New York Mets, and his youth baseball team. Warner recently traveled to Maryland from his home in Midland Park, N.J., to compete in the Cal Ripken Experience Turn Two Tournament. He was on the mound in a championship bracket game when he was struck by a line drive. He was rushed to Johns Hopkins Hospital and put in the intensive care unit with a...

Orioles to host Army-Navy doubleheader, play 2019 exhibition game in Annapolis

Orioles to host Army-Navy doubleheader, play 2019 exhibition game in Annapolis
It's widely considered that the rivalry between our nation's military and naval academies is the greatest in all of American sports. And while that rivarly is mostly associated with the annual Army-Navy football game, don't think that it doesn't carry over into other sports (or just about anything, for that matter). How cool is it that we have the Naval Academy right in our backyard in historic Annapolis and get to witness this rivalry firsthand year-round? Now that rivalry is being brought...

Orioles generate record $97 million economic impact in Sarasota

Orioles generate record $97 million economic impact in Sarasota
If you make the trip down south for spring training and drive around downtown Sarasota, Fla,, you would wonder if you ever left Baltimore. The lamp posts that line the sidewalks down Main Street are draped in Birdland banners and the people walking around are dressed in orange and black. If you head over to the Ed Smith Stadium complex, you'll find Orioles fans lined up at the crack of dawn to catch a glimpse of their favorite players. The Orioles have made quite the little community in...

#TBT to "Nationals Classics": Murphy has career night in rout of Cardinals

#TBT to "Nationals Classics": Murphy has career night in rout of Cardinals
Daniel Murphy, runner-up for the 2016 National League MVP, silenced critics early in the 2017 campaign when he hit safely in the first 10 games of the season with a .444/.457/.711 slash line. At the time, his 10 games were tied for the longest streak in the majors in 2017 and it was the longest such streak to start a season in his career. We turn to Bob Carpenter (@scorebook_bob) to give you a recap of one of Murphy's best games during his outstanding start to the season, the Nationals' April...

MASN announces seven-game Orioles spring training TV schedule
You can't wait for Saturday's Orioles FanFest because it helps ward off the winter chill and make baseball season seem just a little closer. (OK, for a few minutes we'll ignore the fact that it's supposed to be in the mid-50s on Saturday, so work with me ...) Well, if you're wondering when you'll actually get to see Orioles baseball on MASN, wonder no more. MASN today announced a seven-game spring training broadcast schedule, starting with their Grapefruit League opener on Friday, Feb. 23...

Two games against the Cardinals (March 11,...

#TBT to "Nationals Classics": Jackson helps Nats salvage nightcap of doubleheader

#TBT to "Nationals Classics": Jackson helps Nats salvage nightcap of doubleheader
The major league hot stove has been ice cold so far this offseason. There are still plenty of big-name free agents available on the board with spring training less than three weeks away. Although the Nationals never figured to play a huge role in the free agent market this offseason, they have made a couple of re-signings to at least make this winter not completely uneventful. They re-signed Brandon Kintzler to a one-year deal to keep the Law Firm bullpen intact. Matt Adams was signed to a...

Can the Nats improve on a 50 road-win season?

Can the Nats improve on a 50 road-win season?
It is pretty amazing to look back at how dominant a team the Nationals were on the road in 2017. They went 50-31 away from home, far and away the best road record in the National League. Only the Indians and Astros had better road records (53-28) in all of baseball. The 50-31 record on the road for the Nats was five games better than their 45-36 road record in 2016. The Nats even won two out of three games in late August at Houston, the eventual World Series champions. In 2012, the Nats went...

Goodbye, winter's chill, hello spring's warmth.

Maybe not necessarily with baseball, but definitely in terms of getting active. (Especially since they essentially get...

#TBT to "Nationals Classics": Gonzalez shuts down Brew Crew at home

#TBT to "Nationals Classics": Gonzalez shuts down Brew Crew at home
What more can be said about the season Gio Gonzalez had in 2017? The Nationals left-hander posted one of the best seasons of his career and one of the most consistent in all of baseball last year. He finished the year 15-9 with a 2.96 ERA (the second-best of his career) and continued to prove his durability by amassing 201 innings in 32 starts. The thing about Gonzalez last year is that while he was not as flashy as Max Scherzer or Stephen Strasburg, he got the job done on a nightly basis....

"Orioles Classics" #TBT: Beckham quickly impresses in first week with Orioles

"Orioles Classics" #TBT: Beckham quickly impresses in first week with Orioles
Tim Beckham became a welcome addition to the Orioles lineup when he joined the team at the 2017 trade deadline and immediately impressed fans in his first week with the club. He started things off with a 12-game hitting streak from Aug. 1-12, which led to him earning his first American League Player of the Week honor (for July 31-Aug. 6). Beckham became the third player since 1954 to have a hitting streak of at least 12 games to begin their O's career. In those first 12 games with Baltimore,...

"Orioles Classics" #TBT: O's turn two triple plays in one season

"Orioles Classics" #TBT: O's turn two triple plays in one season
The 2017 season was the year of the triple play for Baltimore. One of the rarest feats in baseball, the Orioles accomplished it twice in two different ballparks almost three months apart. The first was on May 2 at Fenway Park and was a bit unconventional. A popup from Jackie Bradley Jr. failed to meet J.J. Hardy's glove, but he quickly tossed the ball over to Jonathan Schoop, who tagged Mitch Moreland before touching second to force Dustin Pedroia out, then fired it over to Chris Davis to get...

#TBT to "Nationals Classics": Harper and Trout put on a show in L.A.

#TBT to "Nationals Classics": Harper and Trout put on a show in L.A.
As we continue our Throwback Thursday posts, we'll defer to Bob Carpenter and his handy-dandy scorebook for this week's memorable moment from last season. We rarely get to see two of the best players in baseball go head to head, with Bryce Harper playing in the National League East and Mike Trout in the American League West. But the stars aligned - so to speak - in 2017 as the former MVPs met in, where else, the City of Angels for a two-game set. And, boy, did they put on a show from the...
