Fenter dazzles with 13 strikeouts, but Delmarva offense sputters in 1-0 loss

Fenter dazzles with 13 strikeouts, but Delmarva offense sputters in 1-0 loss
SALISBURY, Md. - Single-A Delmarva manager Kyle Moore didn't worry when the Shorebirds offense was a little slow out of the gate Friday night in Game 2 of their South Atlantic League semifinal series against the Hickory Crawdads. The way Gray Fenter was dealing gave the bats ample time to adjust and wake up. "Our offense does that, has done that a lot," Moore said. "They kind of feel them out the first three innings and so we usually beat teams in the fourth, fifth and sixth. So I wasn't...

Veteran hitting coach Radison energizes Shorebirds - and vice-versa

Veteran hitting coach Radison energizes Shorebirds - and vice-versa
SALISBURY, Md. - Beneath the third base stands at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium, the sound of bat meeting ball is keeping beat with Waka Flocka Flame's epithet-rich "50K Remix." Before each swing, Dan Radison's right arm snakes around a screen, feeding a pitch to a waiting batter. Over and over, Radison simulates a low, drivable offering, and over and over, faux line drives are sprayed across an oblong cavernous chamber surrounded by a mesh screen that offers little in the way of...

North makes good on Yahn's bold prediction, rallies for 8-7 win in Carolina League All-Star Classic
FREDERICK, Md. - The South Division had jumped to a quick 4-0 lead in the second when Single-A Frederick third baseman Willy Yahn went up and down the North Division dugout, trying to pump up his teammates. "I was just saying to the guys - semi-joking around and semi-serious - 'Greatest comeback in All-Star Game history coming up,' " Yahn said. "We're just trying to compete, no matter what the score is." Yahn capped a four-run sixth inning with a two-run double that shaved the South lead...

Orioles quizzed on "Thank God I'm A Country Boy" lyrics

Orioles quizzed on "Thank God I'm A Country Boy" lyrics
"Well, life on the farm is kinda ______-_______." You know the words! During every seventh-inning stretch, hearing John Denver's "Thank God I'm A Country Boy" is as much a part of going to an Orioles game as the hot dog race, a Boog's BBQ sandwich or a stroll down Eutaw Street. Since the players hear the song every home game, we decided to test their knowledge of the 1974 classic. Lefty Paul Fry was the first to embrace the challenge even though he's often in the zone warming up in the...

For ex-O's catcher Lenny Webster, No. 42 "means one thing and one man only"

For ex-O's catcher Lenny Webster, No. 42 "means one thing and one man only"
April 15 is Jackie Robinson Day in Major League Baseball, and the last member of the Orioles to regularly don No. 42 couldn't be prouder to see every player in the big leagues wearing the jersey number of the man who broke the color barrier in 1947 with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Former O's catcher Lenny Webster is now 54 and living Orlando. He played for the Orioles from 1997 to 1999, and Baltimore was the only stop where he wore No. 42 during a 12-year major league career. It wasn't by...
