The condition of a Hagerstown man who was punched in the head and fell onto a concrete walkway last month while attending a Baltimore Orioles game at Camden Yards has been upgraded, according to hospital officials. Matthew Fortese, 25, of 120 Chantilly Court, was listed in serious condition at the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, a hospital spokeswoman said Friday. Fortese had been listed in critical condition earlier this week. Baltimore police said the incident occurred shortly after 9 p.m. on May 29, when a man in the stands threw beer on Fortese and his date.

The Baltimore Orioles treated 50 members from Girls Inc. to a summertime game at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on July 30. The Orioles played the Kansas City Royals. It was the first time that most of the girls have ever been to a major league baseball game. The staff gave the girls a tour of the stadium before having lunch and taking their seats to watch the game. One of the exciting moments for the girls was when the Orioles put "Welcome Girls Inc. " on the JumboTron for the entire stadium to see. Girls Inc. wants to thank Rick McCauley and the Baltimore Orioles for providing the girls with this unforgettable experience.

My favorite commercial of all time appears in the Snickers “not going anywhere for a while” series, where the quarterback gets knocked silly. The trainer's asking him a battery of “where are you/what day is it?” questions, which the quarterback handles with ease until he's asked who he is, and he replies, “I am Batman.” Anything Batman is funny. I never even watched the show much, but the idea of Batman still sends me reeling just on general principles. So you already know how I'm going to come down in the case of Mark Harvey, who put on a cape and a pair of Batman underpants and streaked around the field at Camden Yards on Opening Day. “It was my birthday, and I just love to make people laugh and get them going,” Harvey told WJZ in Baltimore.

BALTIMORE - Mike Mussina has struggled at Camden Yards before. Just never as a Yankee. Rodrigo Lopez allowed one run over 6 2/3 innings and the Baltimore Orioles battered Mussina, ending the Yankees' eight-game winning streak with a 7-3 victory Tuesday night. "I've had these kind of games here before," said Mussina, an Oriole from 1991-2000. "It's tough anyplace to go walking out that early in a ballgame and know it wasn't your best effort. " Melvin Mora homered and Tony Batista and B.J. Surhoff each drove in two runs for the Orioles, who snapped a five-game losing streak.

Antonio Tobias “Toby” Mendez has been making a new Cal Ripken Jr. in his studio. Mendez's version - in bronze - will be taller than the human version of the Iron Man shortstop and several hundred pounds heavier. The Ripken statue is the last in a series Mendez is creating for the Baltimore Orioles, who are showcasing them in a newly refurbished outfield area at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. The first statue, of Frank Robinson, was unveiled on April 28. Former Manager Earl Weaver will be next, on June 30, followed by Jim Palmer,  July 14; Eddie Murray, Aug. 11; Ripken, Sept.

Don't look now, but the Orioles and Nationals are in first place. I said don't look. As I write this column Friday afternoon, Baltimore (8-5) holds a one-game lead over New York and Tampa Bay in the American League East, and Washington (10-4) has two more victories than second-place Atlanta in the National League East. Nobody should be making their World Series plans just yet, but the first three weeks of this Major League Baseball season certainly have been more exciting than in recent years.

For the first time since the modern World Series era of Major League Baseball began in 1903, a team from Baltimore and a team from Washington, D.C., could both make the playoffs. “I've been a fan of the Orioles ever since Cal Ripken Jr., and I'm glad to see that they're doing better this year,” Falling Waters, W.Va., resident Cory Penrod, 29, said. “The Orioles and Nationals are proving to everybody that the underdog can come up, and that's what's great about America.” The Baltimore Orioles were 66-55 and in the second wild card position Monday afternoon.

Anyone can root for a team when it's winning. It takes a real fan to stay with a team when it's losing.   Baltimore Orioles fans are suffering through a 14th consecutive losing season. The last time I looked at the standings, the O's were in last place, 27 1/2 games behind the Boston Red Sox in the American League East. There's no hope for this season. All is lost. Forget the bobbleheads. The Orioles should give each of their fans a medal when they come to the park.

BALTIMORE (AP) -- If the Baltimore Orioles had pitched this well earlier in the season, there would have been no need to hire Buck Showalter. Jeremy Guthrie outdueled Mark Buehrle, and Baltimore beat the Chicago White Sox 4-3 for their fifth win in six games under their new manager. Felix Pie homered for the Orioles, who took the lead for good with a two-run sixth. Since Showalter made his debut in the dugout Tuesday, Baltimore has swept three games from the Los Angeles Angels and won two of three from the AL Central-leading White Sox. Guthrie (6-11)

We writers fancy ourselves to be artists. We witness an event and then try to create a masterpiece by finding the right words to paint a picture to capture our readers' imaginations.  It's kind of like having one of those color-by-number sets when you are a kid. And because of that, there are times we come out looking as focused as Rembrandt and as abstract as Picasso. Then, other times, we come off as confused as a 3-year-old using a crayon on a wall. Sometimes, events defy description.

There's no crying in baseball? It was one of those moments when something just happens without any warning or buildup. It was hard to explain why it happened and what sparked it. I shed tears of joy. Yes, is this what I've come to in my mid-40s? Writing my first column in a couple of months about how I've become a bawling, babbling buffoon in middle age? No, this is not what this column is about. It's about baseball, of course. The tears - well at least the lump in my throat, the moistness of my eyes and the sogginess of the sleeve of my T-shirt - arrived last Friday morning as I sat in this very seat at home watching highlights on my laptop of the Orioles beating the Yankees on the night they unveiled the Cal Ripken Jr. statue at Camden Yards.
