  1. Frobby, it's probably just precautionary. made a diving catch in right last Thursday. He batted his next time out but was taken out the next inning. He seems to be in good spirits so it may just be minor dings.

  7. Any Hangouters planning on attending Dream Week next week?
  8. Yep: A WINNER ! It's the same person, but two different pitchers. Chris' pitching has evolved over the years. The first photo was taken by me at Twin Lakes in 2008. Chris had been traded from the Seattle Mariners to the Orioles in February. Orioles GM Andy MacPhail traded Erik Bedard for Adam Jones, Chris Tillman, George Sherill, Kam Mickolio and Tony Butler. At the time, the Orioles' major league Spring Training was held in Ft. Lauderdale, but their minor league spring training was held at Twin Lakes. In those days, the media did not cover Twin Lakes because it was way too far fr
