Play Ball! Baseball Returns to the Delight of Fans


o you remember going to see your first baseball game? Mine was a Bowie Baysox game, probably around age 9. The team and Prince George’s Stadium were brand new, and the stands were packed in those years—some of the highest attendance in minor league baseball. Here’s what I remember from that day: cheering for the team, eating soft pretzels and ice cream, and doing the wave with my best friend while her big brother pretended not to know us. Here’s what I don’t remember: who the Baysox played against, the final score, or who won. The actual competitive baseball part didn’t concern me in the least, but I loved the energy of the game and the shared experience. Families all over Chesapeake

Country have enjoyed that energy over the years, whether rooting for a minor league team like the Baysox or the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs in Waldorf or watching the big leaguers at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Baseball games are a multi-generational pastime, the experience handed down from grandparents and parents to children. CBM Bay Weekly managing editor Kathy Knotts has been taking her two boys to Baysox games for years, and while they’re edging towards the age of being “too cool” to hang out with their parents, baseball games are still met with enthusiasm. The 2020 pandemic season, of course, rudely interrupted fan traditions. Professional baseball went

on with an abbreviated season, but the ballparks were empty—a bizarre scene with artificial crowd noise piped in through the speakers. Like so much of the COVID-19 era, it seemed like a bad dream. This spring, Bay Weekly is happy to report, baseball is back. Fans will be masked up and spread out, with a lot more breathing room this season. But the experience of sitting at the ballpark on a summer night with a hot dog and a beer is once again possible, and that’s something to cheer about. The MLB season is well underway, the Baysox home opener starts in less than two weeks, and the Blue Crabs follow later in May. In our cover story (page 10) you’ll find a guide to all the ways you can take

in a ball game this year. And while we’re on the subject of feel-good sports stories, be sure to read about another local semipro team: the Chesapeake Bay Lightning (page 8). Never heard of them? They’re a women’s ice hockey team—among the best in the nation—living and training right here on the Bay. We’re proud to expand our coverage of inspiring sports efforts in Bay Weekly’s communities. If you know of an athlete or team doing something amazing, let us know! Email editor@bayweekly.com. p —MEG WALBURN VIVIANO, CBM EDITORIAL DIRECTOR

The victim fell into the water near Day Marker 11 on the South River. Chart: NOAA.



n Anne Arundel County, boater has pleaded guilty to manslaughter and driving while under the influence of alcohol in the 2019 death of his boat passenger. The body of 76-year-old George Jaeger was found in the South River after falling from a 22-foot center console, as Bay Bulletin reported in May 2019. The Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney says the boat’s owner and operator, Thomas Coale Sr., 55, returned to land and waited some 50 minutes before calling for help and was visibly intoxicated when officers arrived. According to the state’s attorney, the two men went out for a boat ride on May 6, 2019 out of Liberty Marina in Edgewater, after lunch and drinks at Buffalo Wild Wings. Surveillance showed the men left the marina in Coale’s boat at 4:50 p.m. and just 35 minutes later, Coale returned to the marina alone. But it wasn’t for another 50 minutes, the investigation showed, that he called 911 to report his friend fell into the water and drowned. During that time, he left the marina in his truck and returned again. “The facts in this case showed that he was guilty of involuntary manslaughter for the grossly negligent act of failing to seek help on the victim’s behalf, leaving him in the water to drown and then only calling authorities long after he returned to shore and left the area,” said Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney Anne Colt Leitess. When police and the Coast Guard found Jaeger’s body in the water, he still had a weak pulse, according to the state’s attorney, but later died. His cause of death was determined to be accidental drowning. Both men had alcohol and cocaine in their system. Coale pleaded guilty to the man-

slaughter charge and to DUI, for getting behind the wheel of his truck after the incident. “While the State could not prove the defendant was intoxicated while operating his boat at the time of the accident or that was the cause of Jaeger’s death, we could prove he knowingly abandoned his friend and was intoxicated when he operated his truck after leaving the marina and returning,” said Leitess. A Coast Guard investigation showed that the auto-GPS tracking data on Coale’s boat had been deleted, and prosecutors suspect Coale deleted the data himself after returning to shore and before calling 911. Coale was sentenced to 10 years in jail with all but 18 months suspended, along with supervised probation and drug and alcohol treatment. He was taken into custody directly from his plea hearing last week.


Group. She said this is the most difficult subject she’s had to talk about while being a resident, and that she is trying to save the Broadneck Peninsula from harm. She said many residents are opposed to the proposed span. “We reject a span here, which would destroy our peninsula and decimate our service roads—possibly Sandy Point State Park on the north,” she said. “Alternatives must be reconsidered. It also might put the Whitehall communities at risk.” The Maryland Transportation Authority and Federal Highway Administraton describe the purpose of the Bay Crossing Study “is to consider corridors for providing additional capacity and access across the Chesapeake Bay in order to improve mobility, travel reliability, and safety at the existing Bay Bridge.” Jay Falstad is with the Queen Anne’s Conservation Association, which he said is the oldest conservation association on the Eastern Shore at 52 years. The association hired a firm to look at

the proposal and were willing to accept whatever finding they found, he said. “What we found, however, is really nothing short of an administrative disaster,” he said. “The DEIS we’re talking about is really not an environmental impact statement at all. What it really amounts to is a failed traffic study.” Critics say the DEIS relies too much on a very limited amount of information to support a new span. Anne Arundel County Executive Steuart Pittman said the statement was created to support Governor Hogan’s intent to build in the first place, and not the other way around. “It was not very compelling in my view,” he said. “Their projection of increased traffic depends on future development sprawl on the Eastern Shore. Since this won’t be built for 20 years or more, I view this as building yesterday’s bridge tomorrow.” The current bridge will reach its maximum life span by 2065 if it is maintained and repaired regularly. It was originally constructed in 1952. Pittman said numbers he’s heard for building a new span, presumably with much help from the federal government, are between $5 and $10 billion. See BRIDGE on page 6


ith the Maryland Transportation Authority’s public comment period now open on a potential new span alongside the existing Bay Bridge, leaders on both sides of the bridge are making their voices heard. The majority of those commenting at a Zoom virtual town hall last week were critical of Governor Larry Hogan’s Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) that proposes putting a third span state Route 50 over the Bay Bridge on the Broadneck Peninsula in Anne Arundel County. The town hall was organized by the Anne Arundel County Executive Office, which opposes the plan. Patricia Lynch of Annapolis is a member of the Bay Bridge Reconstruction Advisory

Falstad said the data that is used by the state to support a third span is confined to one week’s worth of analyzed traffic in 2017. He noted that was also pre-pandemic, before working from home became more popular. “It fails to look at the 51 other weeks,” he said. “We have major troubles with this.” Multiple residents commented that dealing with traffic, particularly summer beach traffic going to the Eastern Shore, can be a huge headache for Broadneck residents. District 5 County Council member Amanda Fiedler lives in the area. “A snapshot in time is not enough to relate the problems we have in the Broadneck Peninsula,” she said. “We have to plan our lives around traffic. Each of us has to calculate the time we are going to sit trapped in our cars.” Maryland State Senator Ed Reilly (R-Anne Arundel), of District 33, believes finding a northern crossing for a new bridge would be a far superior choice from a practical standpoint, but also from a national security perspective, in the case of future national defense and evacuation needs. “We need to change the dialogue,” he said.

Maryland State Delegate Heather Bagnall (D-Anne Arundel), also of District 33, said basing such a large decision on such a small traffic sample from five years ago was “unconscionable.” Former Anne Arundel County Council member Richard Ladd was less critical of the possibility of a third span, but encouraged the state to explore new technology in helping to regulate traffic flow. “Increasing the lanes concurrent with putting another bridge lane in seems to be a viable option,” he said. “That’s not what people want to hear.” The subject of the third Bay Bridge span engenders strong feelings from many, especially those living in the area that would be most impacted. The state is accepting public comment on the proposed project until at least May 10. The Anne Arundel County Executive’s Office encourages residents to take advantage of that opportunity by expressing their view to the state of Maryland. “This is important and your comments do matter as it relates to this process,” said county transportation officer, Ramond Robinson. “That is the chance to voice your opinion.” Comments can be made through this link: baycrossingstudy.com/public-involvement/ deis-submit-comments.

he pandemic may have delayed the Annapolis Maritime Museum’s makeover, but it didn’t stop the museum’s state-of-the-art new features from becoming reality. A year later than expected, visitors got to experience AMM’s newest exhibits, complete with virtual reality (VR) experiences and books that come to life. Bay Bulletin got a first look inside the museum, where the exhibits tell some of the Bay’s most important stories. Visitors can “step onto” a workboat through VR. “I’m feeling like I’m on the boat, the skipjack, and seeing the area,” exclaimed museum member Annette Good. They can compare marine life in aquariums meant to represent the

Chesapeake when Captain John Smith arrived hundreds of years ago versus how it looks today. And they can step up to a Harry Potter-type magical book about the Bay, where the pages come alive and the illustrations begin moving. The recurring theme is our changing waterfront. You can walk past cages of oyster shells representing different time periods on the Bay—the cages get emptier through the years, illustrating the decline of the oyster population. The museum is based in Eastport at the old McNasby’s building, the last oyster packing facility in Annapolis. Oyster history is a big part of the education there. In one interactive exhibit, when you step up to a screen, a waterman senses you’re standing there, appears onscreen, and begins to talk about his job on an oyster boat. “It’s certainly become more high-tech, more 21st century,” observed museum

BAY BULLETIN member Sandra Roffwork. The interactive exhibits also explore Bay health and Annapolis waterways. “We’re struggling,” AMM Executive Director Alice Estrada said. “We’re lucky to get a C-grade on our report card on Bay quality.” The renovations were in the plans for about five years, but the coronavirus slowed the opening by a year. Given the museum’s limited space, curators had to carefully weigh the most important messages to present to the public through new exhibits. “At the end of the day, we’re only 2,500 square feet and we do have to vet all the subject matter to determine what is most relevant,” Estrada told the crowd at the official ribbon-cutting. Appreciating and protecting the Bay begins with feeling a real connection to our waterways, says Maryland State Senator Sarah Elfreth (D-Anne Arundel). “People won’t protect what they haven’t experienced.” And the Annapolis Maritime Museum goes beyond its walls to bring experiences to people. They offer cruises on the historic skipjack Wilma Lee, host the famed annual sock burning, and hold summer concerts. While the sock burning has been canceled due to the pandemic, AMM hopes to bring back the summer music this year. To learn more visit www.amaritime.org/museum.

Sprucing up the City

Volunteers plant for GreenScape BY KIMBERLY KWEDER


ver 350 residents spent last Saturday sprucing up neighborhoods in the City of Annapolis to celebrate Earth Day and the city’s annual GreenScape program. GreenScape is a community partnership investing in beautification, cleanup and planting in public spaces throughout the city. It was founded through the efforts of former mayor Ellen Moyer in 1991,

and for the last 29 years, hundreds of projects have been initiated and adopted by individuals, schools, churches, and community associations through GreenScape. Annapolis Recreation and Parks sets a budget for beautification efforts. This year’s $15,000 city-funded budget covers 72 projects in total, according to horticulturist Marisa Wittlinger, who manages the plant materials and meetings. “Everyone benefits—that’s what’s great about it. The city benefits because we’re improving public spaces ... residents get to enjoy these beautiful places that they created,” says Wittlinger. Each year, GreenScape accepts requests for projects and purchases the plant materials. Each order applicant has a $300 limit. This year, the city provided 2,261 perennials, 57 trees, 35 shrubs, 467 herbs and vegetables, and mulch. Some of the spring planting projects date back over 10 years. Ton, a 21-year-old volunteer was helping on the Bay Ridge Avenue “islands” project. Years ago, 13 concrete barricades were installed in the middle of the road to slow down speedy cars. The City of Annapolis originally started plantings on the islands which then became a GreenScape project. Ton said some of the residents have adopted the barricades through a city-funded bud-

get item for beautification efforts. “Right now the islands are beautiful; they are in full bloom. The rose bushes and crepe myrtles are mature,” Ton said. “We call ourselves the ‘Eastport Island People.’ We tried to find a funny name. Some people even dressed up, one with a bumblebee uniform, during initial GreenScapes.” Grow Annapolis, a nonprofit community garden project, educates residents on healthy food and uses Eastport Firehouse Gardens as a GreenScape site. “Thanks to the GreenScape program, Grow Annapolis is able to supply our Eastport Firehouse community garden with 60 bags of Leaf-Gro to keep the vegetable gardens thriving,” writes Beth Santin, a Grow Annapolis gardener. Signs of GreenScape projects can be found along the Navy Marine Corps Stadium trails, with plantings of tulips and daffodils bursting with color. “It’s fun to drive around and see how the projects look,” Wittlinger said. In the fall, GreenScape supports national Make a Difference Day, a smaller-scale effort made up of 15 projects where the program gives out tulips and daffodils for volunteers. Volunteers planted 2,525 bulbs in public spaces throughout Annapolis during Make A Difference Day in October 2020. For more information, visit www.annapolis.gov/GreenScape

“We don’t get paid to play, but we show up to all the games. It just shows how far women’s hockey has come and how much respect it has gained through the years.” —HILARY MURPHY, CAPTAIN AND PRESIDENT OF CBL

Lightning on Ice Women’s hockey team heads to nationals BY IAN DECKER


rom one bay to another, the Chesapeake Bay Lightning (CBL) hockey team traveled down the East Coast to compete in the 2021 Adult Women’s National Championships, held in Tampa from April 22–25. While they came close to total victory, winning their first three games in the roundrobin tournament, the team fell Saturday to a Detroit team in the semifinals. While they may not be bringing a national trophy home with them, the team returns with personal victories galore.

Women’s Hockey in Chesapeake Country Founded in 1993, the Chesapeake Bay Lightning is a semi-professional women’s hockey team with three levels of competition. The highest level is the B-Team, which travels as far as Michigan and Florida for upper-level tournaments. The C- and Rec-Teams both compete in the Mid-Atlantic Women’s Hockey League (MAWHL). With over 70 players registered, CBL is the largest women’s team in the region. The Lightning is based out of the Wheaton Ice Arena and the Gardens Ice House in Laurel. The Lightning gets its origins from the Washington Wolves, a longer-established D.C. region team. Now competing at the B level—just one step below professional hockey—the team plays more than 25 games during the season, from October to mid-April.

Bay to Bay Fundraiser The 2,000-kilometer trip to nationals comes after logging 2,451 virtual kilometers in a fundraising effort to help the team pay for the journey.

“It should come as no surprise that ice hockey is a very expensive sport,” said CBL goalie Maxie Weisz, a Bowie native who played Division 1 hockey at St. Lawrence University and is in her first year with the team. “Every piece of equipment is paid out of pocket. When the team made it to nationals, it was going to be a large financial undertaking. By reaching our goal [of 2,000 kilometers], it allows us to be able to pursue hockey at a more competitive level.” Not only did the Bay to Bay Fundraiser help the Lightning pay for travel down to Tampa and the $1,100 entry fee, but it was also a way to interact with the local community and raise the profile of women’s hockey in the area. The team met their goal of $10,000 just before the trip. Organizers say fundraising allows the team to pursue higher competition than is available in the area and facing stiffer competition only amplifies women’s hockey, helping develop the program at the next level.

In Search of Ice When Hilary Murphy, captain and president of CBL, started playing ice hockey 20 years ago, there weren’t many options for girls. Murphy subsequently founded two teams, one at St. John’s College High School in D.C. and the other at Villanova. While remarkable, Murphy’s is a story all too familiar for those looking to lace up their skates and hit the ice. “Growing up, there were not many girls’ teams in the area, and it was even rare to see a girl playing on a boys’ team,” says left wing Shannon Rice, who grew up as a “rink rat” in Laurel and played Division III at Saint Michael’s College in Colchester, Vt. “Being the only girl, I had to bring my A-game every skate, or I risked embarrassment, judgment or getting cut,” Rice said. “More and more girls are going on to play college hockey and beyond. This is awesome for the sport

of hockey itself but also allows and encourages girls to become great at something they love.” Despite facing obstacles at every level, many continue to seek opportunities to play. “Being a female hockey player comes with some stigma,” said Emily Burton, who grew up in Baltimore City, where she learned how to skate at age 7 and got hooked on hockey, “but I take pride in challenging people’s perspectives or expectations. It’s always fun to demonstrate how strong and capable women are and to do it in an arena that is made out to be somewhat masculine.” Having been around hockey in Maryland for the past 20 years, Murphy has seen the sport flourish. “It’s truly amazing just how much hockey has grown as a female sport in this area,” she said. “We don’t get paid to play, but we show up to all the games. It just shows how far women’s hockey has come and how much respect it has gained through the years.”

Growth of the Game The potential for the growth of women’s hockey is “limitless,” says Burton. With the NWHL streaming on NBC Sports and the U.S. Women’s National Team winning gold at the 2019 World Championship, women’s hockey is set

to take off. As a kid, Murphy was never able to watch professional women’s hockey, televised or in person. But young girls now can view a women’s hockey broadcast. With the NWHL and National Team gaining popularity, female players have role models to inspire them and promote a path to follow. “It’s really neat as an adult to see just how far this sport has come,” Murphy said. “And it’s not going anywhere. It’s only getting stronger.” Despite progress, there’s still ample room for advancement—better coaching, accessibility for low-income families, livable and equitable salaries and experienced referees are key. Improvement can’t just be in the youth setup, say advocates, but by creating more opportunities at higher levels, young girls can envision a concrete path to playing hockey after college. Since joining CBL in 2019, goalie Maria Powell of Annapolis is in awe of the drive of female hockey players to find ways to fight for their sport despite limited outlets in adulthood. “Just seeing the growth of the girls’ team is incredible,” she said. “It’s great to see it grow. Especially going down to Florida and having 10 different teams down there that we’ll be playing against. It’s amazing to be part of that growth.”

BGE Goes Electric— With its Fleet of Vehicles BY KIMBERLY KWEDER


altimore Gas and Electric is joining the move to combat environmental concerns over the use of gasoline-powered vehicles—putting more emphasis on the electric part of their name. “We are in a huge effort to electrify a significant portion of our fleets,” says Richard Yost, BGE spokesperson. The company, a subsidiary of the Exelon Corporation and the state’s largest gas and electric utility aims to convert 50 percent of its fleet to electric power by 2030. The EVsmart project is also piloting the use of electric buses, excavators, trailer movers, and multiple EV charging technologies to maximize the uses for electric vehicles. Currently, residents can see meter readers driving Chevy Bolts around central Maryland and parking vehicles at a canopy equipped with EV chargers. A BGE facility is also being charged by solar arrays when the EVs are unused and the battery’s full, Yost said. “We’re very excited about this work,” he added. The effort is part of a larger statewide plan to encourage all residents, not just BGE customers, to buy electric vehicles. Maryland joined seven other

states in forming a task force to ensure the successful implementation of the Zero Emission Vehicles program. The ZEV program is part of the California Clean Cars Program that Maryland adopted in 2007. The state of Maryland’s goal is to reach 300,000 zero emissions plug-in electric vehicles by 2025. The BGE charging stations were installed to help people get comfortable with access points, Yost said. More than 170 EV charging ports are ready for use and 190 more will be installed in 2021, BGE announced in January. BGE will eventually install and operate a network of 500 chargers available to all EV drivers. EVs are just the start of BGE’s green technology goals. Another project is cleaning litter from waterways. Employees at BGE’s Spring Gardens facility were concerned about trash in a nearby waterway, Yost said. Trash cages, otherwise known as Trash Elimination Devices (TEDs), now gobble up trash from Baltimore’s Federal Hill at two stormwater drains on the eastern bank of the Patapsco River’s Middle Branch. The trash collected from the TEDs is sent to the Wheelabrator Baltimore waste-to-energy facility across the Patapsco River from Spring Gardens. The trash cages have recovered more than 1,700 pounds of trash, according to a December 2019 BGE release. p

Baseball teams welcome back fans to stands



N ONE OF THE SUREST signs that spring has sprung, professional baseball is back. The Major League Baseball season began in early April, following last year’s very abbreviated 60-game season, and minor league teams are set to soon return to the field after Major League Baseball canceled all affiliated minor league seasons in 2020 due to the pandemic. What’s more, consistently-rising vaccine numbers mean that Maryland’s many professional teams—the Baltimore Orioles, Bowie Baysox, Aberdeen IronBirds, Delmarva Shorebirds, Frederick Keys, Hagerstown Suns, and Southern Maryland Blue Crabs — are all welcoming fans back into the stands this year, although at reduced capacities. And while things might look a bit different inside each of these ballparks this spring and summer, there’s no hiding how happy teams and players are to have fans back in the stands – nor, of course, how happy fans are to be able to again watch America’s pastime from them. With that in mind, here’s a look at the 2021 game-day experience at three of our favorite regional teams’ ballparks. BALTIMORE ORIOLES

he O’s kicked off their season April 2 and played their home opener on April 8 in front of 10,150 fans, reflecting a 25 percent capacity limit on attendance that will be maintained until further notice. Although the O’s lost the game and fans’ cheers may have been a bit muffled by the mandatory face masks they wore, their presence was clearly appreciated. As John Angelos, Orioles Chairman and CEO, told CBM Bay Weekly, “The long-awaited return of fans is the result of successful nationwide and organizational efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19, increase vaccination access for millions of Americans, and

strengthen our economy by bringing employees back to work. Just as we did in 2020, the Orioles will remain vigilant in our efforts and will continue to consult medical experts every step of the way as we invite fans back to Oriole Park at Camden Yards to enjoy another successful baseball season.” The feeling on the field was powerful as well. “It was great to hear the fans back at Camden Yards today and for our players to play in front of them again,” Manager Brandon Hyde said in a press conference following the home opener. “It definitely raises the intensity of the game, and our players fed off the energy and the emotion.”

The sentiment was shared by all of the O’s, but perhaps none more so than Trey Mancini, who missed the entire 2020 season after being diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer and undergoing surgery to remove a tumor last April. “We have the best fans in baseball,” said Mancini. “No matter what, they love us and that showed today. Even at 25 percent capacity, it felt like a full stadium. I have goosebumps thinking about it.” Indeed, while attendance limits mean that fans will produce a lower decibel of crowd noise and a far less eye-catching wave than in normal years, they’ll still enjoy everything that makes a trip to Camden Yards a great experience. “We are all trying to return to our regular daily lives that we experienced pre-COVID-19, and coming to the ballpark to celebrate America’s favorite pastime is a safe and enjoyable way to begin the return to normalcy,” Jennifer Grondahl, Orioles Sr. Vice President of Communications & Community Development, told Bay Weekly. “Although we have limited capacity at this time, we still have many elements that fans know and love such as favorite ballpark food items, The Bird revving up the crowd, the Hot Dog Race and Crab Shuffle, and of course cheering on your favorite Oriole players, from the return of Trey Mancini to our hometown star Bruce Zimmerman. Baseball is a game that can be enjoyed by families and fans of all ages.” As these cherished traditions return, Grondahl says that fans can also look forward to two new dining options, Charm City Diner and Vida Taco Bar, as well as The Bird’s Nest, a new experience offering them the opportunity to take a photo with the Oriole Bird on the Center Field Roof Deck, with all proceeds going to the Orioles Charitable Foundation. And the pandemic won’t stop the ever-popular fan giveaways, so you can still expect to score everything from Mother’s Day scarves to classic floppy hats and even a water bottle featuring Baltimore’s clean-water ambassador, Mr. Trash Wheel.

The Bowie Baysox open their 29th season at home on May 11. Photo courtesy Bowie Baysox. Whether it’s one of these games or others, two fans who’ll certainly enjoy being able to again sing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” in person this summer are Stephen Reigle of Severn, and his daughter, McKinley. A lifelong Orioles fan, Reigle says that attending games is a family tradition that he and McKinley, whose softball team he coaches, definitely missed in 2020 and are very happy to be able to resume in 2021. “Our family went to lots of O’s games at the old Memorial Stadium when I was growing up,” says Reigle. “My dad would always get hot peanuts from an old farmers market near his work at Fort Meade, and even though we always sat in the cheap seats I absolutely loved it. I still remember seeing Brooks

Robinson’s last game, when I was 4, and going to Eddie Murray’s very first game, too. And cars were all parked bumper to bumper in those days, so I also remember never leaving early and having some very late summer nights.” Reigle continues the tradition with his daughter, “I love the fact that my daughter loves going to games with me now, and we missed it big time last year. I love the atmosphere, the crowd cheering, and more than anything seeing the joy in her face. It feels awesome to be able to watch the O’s live and in person together again and keep our family tradition alive.” But Camden Yards isn’t the only place the Reigles will be going to watch some high-quality ball this spring and summer.



ike many baseball-loving Marylanders, the Reigles will also head to Prince George’s Stadium to watch some of the 60 home games that will be played there by the Bowie Baysox, the Orioles’ Class AA Minor League Baseball affiliate. The Baysox open their 29th season at home on May 11 with health- and safety-promoting policies and procedures similar to those of the O’s in effect: a 25 to 30 percent capacity limit, socially-distanced seating, mandatory mask-wearing for all fans ages 3 and up, and online ticket purchases and cashless in-stadium purchases encouraged.

The team is happy to be back home. “We have waited a long time to be able to announce that baseball will be back, and we can’t wait to welcome fans back to Prince George’s Stadium

soon,” said Baysox General Manager Brian Shallcross upon the release of the 2021 schedule. “We’re incredibly excited to be able to get back to doing what we do: hosting baseball games and welcoming fans and families back to the ballpark after not having a game since September 15, 2019,” Assistant General Manager Phil Wrye told Bay Weekly. “We’ll be continuing to put on a great show for fans all summer, and we’ll still be offering everything that makes attending a Baysox game great: affordable tickets, an amaz-

ing outdoor setting, and the chance to see top prospects play hard and work their way up to the Major Leagues. And last but not least, free parking!” Indeed, every game offers the chance to watch a player who could be wearing an Orioles jersey tomorrow, and perhaps for years after. Just a few of the recognizable Baysox who made the quick trip to Camden Yards are Harold Baines, Brian Roberts, Nick Markakis, Matt Wieters, and Manny Machado.

Galesville to Install Busch Pavilion at Field BY STEVE ADAMS


he Galesville Community Center Organization (GCCO) is currently raising funds to install a pavilion at one of the most historic fields in not only Anne Arundel County but all of Maryland. Organizers hope the Michael E. Busch Pavilion will be erected at Hot Sox Field at Wilson Park in Galesville this summer. Once home to the Galesville Hot Sox, a semi-professional “sandlot” baseball team founded in 1915, the field hosted visiting Negro League baseball teams such as the Baltimore Black Sox and Newark Eagles and brought the comPhoto courtesy of Anne Arundel County munity together to watch games for decades. Recreation & Parks. As Lyndra Marshall, who serves as the GCCO historian and researched the team in preparation for a 2015 Smithsonian traveling exhibition, “Hometown Teams: How Sports Shaped America,” explains, “Just like the players, many residents of Galesville worked all week at Woodfield Fish & Oyster Company, where they shucked oysters and cut and cleaned fish, crabs, and shrimp. It was labor-intensive work, so weekend baseball games were a big celebration with fellowship, food, and fun. Hundreds and as many as 1,200 spectators paid 50 cents at the gate to watch and cheer the team on at any given game. Games were a time to mingle and enjoy lots of great food for as little as 10 cents. There was always fried fish and fried chicken, crab cakes, hot dogs, green beans cooked with ham bone and a little bit of bacon fat, potato salad, slices tomatoes, rolls, and pies. The menu never changed, and it always sold out. The team, and cheering it on, really became the foundation of a proud community.” While GCCO and the county have made a number of improvements to the field since the county acquired it in 2013, Marshall reports that renovations will begin on what will become a $2.5 million state-of-the-art ballpark this summer, hopefully to be completed by the end of 2021 or in early 2022. This will include constructing the Busch Pavilion, named after the man who was instrumental in securing state funding to support recreational facilities in the county, including those for the renovation. Organizers hope it will be a place where the community will come together for recreation and fun, just as it did when watching the Hot Sox. Supporters can purchase a $100 paver that will be laser-engraved with whatever inscription they wish and installed in the patio area. Email GCCO at communitycenter@historicgalesville.org or call Gertrude Makell at 410-703-0610 for more information.

urther south, baseball fans will also again be able to enjoy watching the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs, of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, play 60 homes games at Regency Furniture Stadium in Waldorf. “It feels incredible to have fans coming back into the stadium,” Media Relations Manager and Broadcaster Andrew Bandstra told Bay Weekly. “Fans are everything in minor league baseball, and to go so long without our fans in the stands is devastating ... Heading into any off-season is sad, knowing that fans won’t return until spring. Never could we have imagined an 18-month break, so that adds to our excitement to bring live baseball with fans in the stands back to Southern Maryland.” Bandstra reports that while seating will be limited to 50 percent capacity, or 3,000 fans, and all will be required to wear masks and practice social distancing inside the stadium, the game day experience will be as good as always. “Our mission has always been using baseball to bring our community a much-needed distraction and a welcome break from the monotony of ev-

eryday life, and baseball is needed more now than ever in that regard,” says Bandstra. “We will bring the same energy and provide the same fun-loving environment that makes going to every Blue Crabs game a great experience— one where you can have a hot dog, have a laugh, and be entertained while watching a winning team that will be in contention for an Atlantic League Championship.” For fans seeking a little extra motivation to attend, Bandstra promises that the revamped promotional schedule won’t disappoint. He is especially excited about the Wings Wars Series–in which the Blue Crabs will rebrand as the Southern Maryland Blue Cheeses during the first Thursday home game of each month, offer tickets for bottomless wings and beer from local restaurants, and ask attendees to rate the wings in order to crown Southern Maryland’s King of Wings at the end of the season. The Healthcare Heroes Series will honor a Southern Maryland medical professional for his or her sacrifices during COVID-19 at each Saturday home game. Whether he makes it to a Wing Wars night or not, Paul Rudzinski of Churchton says that he’s definitely glad to have the Blue Crabs back and looks forward to attending at least a few of their home games with at least one of his two teenage sons. “It’s fun, it’s easy, and it’s always different,” says Rudzinski. “Plus, going to baseball games is just a part of summer.” This summer, Maryland baseball fans are finally feeling safe at home plate again. p April 29 - May 6, 2021 • BAY WEEKLY • 13

Time to Check for Ticks


t least once a week, I take a walk through the woods. When it’s warm, I try to stay on open trails because I really hate ticks. Once in Delaware, I had to walk on a path with tall uncut grass. I tucked my pants into my socks and sprayed my lower legs and shoes with repellent but after about 200 feet of walking, I started to see ticks walking up the upper parts of my pants. I knocked off all that I could find and I did not get bit that day. However, the next day I was driving to work and a tick dropped from the car ceiling and began running up my left arm. I was definitely a distracted driver and had to pull over to catch it. I then found two more on the car seat and yet another on my neck. Creepy. Ticks are not insects but are eightlegged arachnids, like a spider. There are four types of ticks in Maryland. and although all four can spread diseases, it’s the deer tick (aka the blacklegged tick) and the Lone Star tick that are the most concerning. The deer tick (Ixodes scapularis) is a tiny tick that may be as small as the period in this sentence. They are reddish-brown with very dark legs. The host species are any mammal but are

most commonly found on white-footed mice and, of course, deer. After they hatch from an egg, they go through a series of growth stages that requires finding a host to feed on. When they reach adult size, they breed and the female will gorge itself, drop off and lay several hundred eggs. To find an animal to feed on, they walk to the end of a leaf or blade of grass and extend their two front legs out as wide as possible and wait for an animal to brush by. They are protected from the elements when attached to a host animal. Without a host, very cold winters do reduce their numbers. Ticks can transmit bloodborne diseases. A tick feeds on an infected animal and the germ remains viable in the tick. An infected female can pass the pathogens to her eggs so that even the tiny nymphs can carry diseases. As a feeding tick gets filled with blood, it regurgitates into the wound and the germ is passed. It usually takes two or more days for this to happen. So, if you find a tick that has been on your body for less than 24 hours, your chance of a tick-borne disease is low. Twenty years ago, the Lone Star tick was uncommon around here. That is no longer the case. These ticks are

redder in color than the deer tick and have a light yellow spot about a third of the way back from their head. Their legs are the same color as their body. Although this arachnid carries diseases, it also injects a sugar, alpha-gal (galactose-1,3-galactose), into the bite. Because it is injected with irritants, people can develop profound allergies to the sugar which is found in mammalian cell walls. A person can therefore become severely allergic to eating red meat. Mild alpha-gal allergies can cause gastrointestinal distress or a rash. But severe reactions can lead to anaphylactic shock. Some people who develop the allergy report that it goes

Earth Day All Year Round


o we only think of the Earth and the impact man has had on it just on Earth Day, April 22? It’s nice to have an annual reminder to make people think of climate change and how crazy our weather patterns have become, animal and plant extinction, rising ocean levels from too much carbon dioxide released in the atmosphere and food insecurity. But Earth Day should be practiced every day of the year. One thing the pandemic has taught us is that we don’t need to shop all the time. We can take time to repair and reuse or repurpose things. Think of all the energy we would save as well as carbon emissions if everybody used an old-fashioned clothesline to dry laundry? Learn to use organic methods in your garden. Poisonous insecticide and herbicide residues are in our food, water, and our bodies. Our health is being compromised from these chemicals. Make an effort to eat real food, especially plant-based organic food, not processed easy “Frankenfood”. A diet of processed foods reduces your life span—cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes have been on the rise in the last 30 years. Start a garden or grow plants in pots if you’re limited in space. Keep

the circle of life going by planting native plants. We’re all interconnected and native plants co-evolved with native insects and wildlife; they are deeply dependent on one another. Plants provide food and shelter to insects, birds and other small animals, which in turn support larger predators. Native plants are building blocks, fundamentals stepping stones of a healthy ecosystem. The tall grass prairies are North America’s most threatened major ecosystem, with about 99 percent plowed up or paved over since the 1830s. By planting native species, you are restoring ecosystems and preserving species that might otherwise be lost forever. Clean air is so important. Like forests, prairies and meadows can sequester pollutants and carbon from the atmosphere. Even small plantings

away with time. If you have a tick buried in you, try to grab it by its head and lift straight up with a slight twist to the side. To avoid getting infected material into you, try not to squeeze the bug by the abdomen. To avoid getting them on you to begin with, tuck long pants into socks and spray repellent on shoes and lower pants legs. Avoid brushing against plants. And don’t lay down in grass that has been flattened by deer (I know someone that did.) If a tick has been attached for more than 24 hours, taking a single dose of an antibiotic can significantly reduce the risk of Lyme’s disease. p

can help filter the air around your home and large plantings can help to mitigate climate change. We need clean water. Here at Beaver Creek Cottage Gardens, our preserved wetlands help to restore the water table. The deep roots of native plants act as both a sponge and a filter. They help

water soak down in the soil and filter out excess nutrients and pollutants, improving water quality as it makes its way to the Severn River. Healthy soil is important for growing a garden. The interaction between native plants and animals created some of the most fertile soil on earth in the Midwest. Native plants prevent soil erosion, create topsoil and build fertility. Native plants help with resource conservation because they require little or no irrigation, fertilizer, pruning and mowing. Ninety percent of insects, including pollinators, require a native plant host to complete their life cycle. Parent birds must gather thousands of these insects to raise a single clutch of their babies. Predators like foxes feed on animals like birds, smaller mammals, reptiles and amphibians, all of whom eat insects as an important part of their diet. Decomposers like carrion beetles, mushrooms, soil microbes and compost piles return nutrients from the animals and plants to the earth. So, remember to plant natives, as we can all make the difference. Join me for my native plant sale, May 15, 11am-6pm, at Beaver Creek Cottage Gardens, 8117 Beverly Road, Severn, Md. p


Since the Bay proper has been totally closed to any kind of angling for rockfish during April the information on FISHFINDER concentrations of striped bass is nil. One can count on the fact that the bigger fish have mostly finished their spawning runs and are on their way back to the Atlantic. Falling tides will find them south of river mouths and riding the currents back to saltier waters. The general consensus is that the stronger outgoing tides are located on the western side of the Bay so that’s a good place to start. Another factor complicating the search is that the migrating fish will be feeding up, recovering from the spawn and will hold on any large concentrations of bait, at least until their appetites are sated. The baitfish could be massing on either side of the Bay. hickory shad are at the high point of their spawning runs throughout the Bay, white perch are winding down and yellow perch are mostly done but late comers will be found just about anywhere. The trophy rockfish season starts May 1 with minimum size at 35 inches and a one fish limit. The season has erupted and it’s going to be wonderful fishing from now on. Enjoy the Chesapeake and all of its tributaries and wild resources.


Your Choice: Leaping Silver Shad or Trophy Rockfish F

eeling a sharp bump, I set the hook with my 5-foot spin rod. At the end of my line a silvery torpedo launched out of the water, arced through the air a good 5 feet, splashed down gracefully and sped off downriver with my drag happily buzzing away. It was the fifth fish of the morning and there were more to come. If you’re not quite ready to face the hordes of boats blanketing the Chesapeake for opening day of trophy rockfish season (May 1), there is a high-quality alternative. The hickory shad spawning run is at its peak right now and their numbers are encouraging. Sometimes called silver shad, tailor, hick or jack shad, this member of the herring family was once a significant and popular food source during colonial times. Pickled, salted, smoked and dried, the hickories were regarded as a delicious and an important spring source of protein. While not recovered enough in Maryland waters to allow harvest, there is a thriving catch and release season

Living their lives running wild in the Atlantic, the hickory shad reaches lengths of up to 24 inches, every inch of them muscle and speed. They return every year to the Tidewater to reproduce about this time. Principally harvested in the recent past for their delicious roe, the fish are currently struggling to rebuild populations depleted by spawning areas devastated by hurricanes, poor sediment control by developers and commercial overharvesting for bait, fertilizers and fish oil. I have, however, seen ever-increasing numbers in local tributaries over the last few years and feel optimistic that they just once again may reach T HURS D AY



healthy populations. Ultra-light and light spin tackle spooled with 4- to 6-pound mono is the proper media to experience these game fish. The traditional terminal tackle is a tandem set of shad darts in weights that will trail just above the bottom in the waters you are fishing. That means having a good selection of darts from 1/32 through 1/4 ounce. Color choices of lures are myriad and important. Shad seem partial to particular colors, unfortunately these colors change almost daily, certainly weekly. Chartreuse is generally popular as is white, both with red or black trim. Other days blaze orange or yellow will be the ticket. The color of the calf tail wing varies as well with white, chartreuse or yellow being the norm. Hickories don’t feed during their run but will strike other lures, including silver and gold spoons, spinners and soft plastic curly and paddle tail jigs, usually in chartreuse. Since white S U ND AY



perch, yellow perch, crappie and pickerel are also present in various stages of their spawn, one never really knows what’s on the end of their line until it reveals itself. Anglers often hedge their bets with a baited lure being one half of the tandem setup and a spoon or dart being the other offering. The Department of Natural Resources recommends the Upper Patuxent, the whole of the Choptank, the Gunpowder, the Little Northeast River, the Susquehanna River and Deer Creek as more the reliable tributaries frequented by the spring runs of hickories. Maps and directions are available on the DNR website. American or white shad also run at this time of year. Far fewer though easily twice the size of hickories, these fish frequent the same waters and will give a similar but more powerful style battle, generally broaching the tributary waters when fighting rather than jumping clear. Both fish provide a most memorable sporting experience. p

Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse Wasted potential makes this thriller a frustrating watch AVAIL ABLE ON AMAZON APRIL 30.


avy SEAL John Kelly (Michael B. Jordan: Raising Dion) is part of an elite team trusted with dangerous missions. But when an extraction goes sideways in Aleppo, Kelly is left questioning the motives of the CIA officer who gave them the assignment. Instead of raiding a small base, Kelly and his team find themselves facing off against the Russian army. Furious that one of his men was killed because he wasn’t given a full briefing, Kelly vows to hold those in power responsible. His superior, Greer (Jodi Turner-Smith:

Queen & Slim), convinces him to let it go and focus on the future. With a pregnant wife waiting at home, Kelly puts the incident behind him. He considers retiring from the SEALS for a safer, more stable life as a family man. But the ghosts of the Aleppo mission followed him home. Members of his team are being murdered and when the assassins come for Kelly, they slay his wife instead. Alone and broken, he has nothing to do but plan vengeance. Greer offers Kelly a chance to find out why his team and his wife were killed. All he has to do is join another elite team, led by Robert Ritter (Jamie Bell: Rocketman), the same CIA officer who pulled him into the quagmire in Aleppo. Can Kelly trust his new team? Or will his need for revenge cloud his judgement? Based on the writings of Maryland’s own Tom Clancy, Without Remorse is

As such, this doesn’t seem like a film so much as a season of television crammed into two hours. Director Stefano Sollima (Sicario: Day of the Soldado) races through John Kelly’s back story. The speed at which he covers the story makes it difficult for the film to believably build relationships. It’s hard to

feel the loss of Kelly’s wife when she’s only had three minutes of screen time—a problem given that’s his sole motivation throughout the film. The film does have some nice action set pieces, including a pretty gnarly plane crash. When the film stops speeding through plots and just lets Kelly and his team blast through action sequences, it starts to really gel into something fun. Sollima and Jordan both excel at action and you can see how much fun both are having when they get to the run-and-gun parts of the movie. Clancy fans will see some of their favorite characters, including CIA suits Ritter and Greer. But unless you’re well-versed in the world of Clancy, it’s hard to understand the significance and relationships between the characters. To make matters worse, writers Taylor Sheridan and Will Staples resort to appalling clichés. Jordan is a capable actor, but even he can’t rescue the lines he’s forced to say. As a rule of thumb, if one of your characters shouts out “DO YOU THINK THIS IS A GAME?”, your script probably needs another draft. Though the story is a bit of a dud, Jordan and Turner-Smith are a good on-screen duo. It would be interesting to see what they could do with a script that allows them to dig into their talents. As it is, Jordan is only really allowed to flex and scream instead of emote. It’s a shame that such a gifted physical actor isn’t given more time to really dig into Kelly’s character. If you’re a longtime fan of Clancy, it could be fun to see one of his international political thrillers play out. The film is filled with action and men shouting about international relations. But if you’re in the market for a film that really delves into a character, Without Remorse will leave you feeling dissatisfied. Hopefully if Amazon grants a sequel, they’ll give Kelly’s character and Jordan the material they deserve. Fair Action * R * 110 mins.




Police in Naples, Florida, are looking for a woman identified only as “Rosalia,” a self-described witch who is suspected of swindling more than $100,000 from at least 10 victims. Authorities were first alerted to the scam on March 14 when a man called to report that Rosalia had disappeared with $29,500 of his money, according to a police report. The man said he had responded to a flyer advertising Rosalia’s “witchcraft services,” WBBH-TV reported. She allegedly told the man she saw something “dark” in his future and gave him three eggs to put under his bed as he slept. When he brought them back the next day, she waved the eggs over his head and face, then opened them to reveal one filled with blood, one with needles and a third with worms, according to the report. She instructed the man to bring her all the money he had so she could bless it and multiply it at her temple in Fort Myers, promising to return it the next day, police said, but Rosalia hasn’t been seen since. Police have identified more victims in the course of their ongoing investigation.

Sign of the Times

A family-owned patisserie in Veresegyhaz, Hungary, is offering its customers sweet relief from COVID-19 angst with colorful layered mousses, each topped with a decorative syringe. The Sulyan family’s special desserts are colored with jelly toppings representing the different COVID-19 vaccinations available in Hungary: citrus yellow for AstraZeneca, darker yellow for Sinopharm, green for Pfizer, orange for Sputnik V and blue for Moderna, Reuters reported. “Anyone can try these,” said confectioner Katalin Benko, and “the only possible side effect would be a little smile on their face.”

Going Out in Style

Mourners at Phil McLean’s funeral in Wellington, New Zealand, first gasped, then laughed as his coffin, shaped like a giant cream doughnut, was brought into the chapel, the Associated Press reported on April 15. McLean had designed the special coffin with his cousin, Ross Hall, owner of Dying Art, a business in Auckland specializing in custom coffins. Over the last 15 years, Hall has fashioned a sailboat, a firetruck, a chocolate bar and Legos, among others. McLean’s widow, Debra, said her husband had considered himself a connoisseur of cream doughnuts, and the coffin “overshadowed the sadness. ... The final memory in everyone’s mind was of that doughnut and Phil’s sense of humor.” For himself, Hall said he had planned a red box with flames on it, but he changed his mind to a clear coffin, with him wearing nothing but a leopard-patterned G-string. “The kids

say they’re not going,” he said.

People With Issues

Edward and Cheryl Patton of Lake View, New York, tried for three years to identify who was throwing used paper coffee cups—some with cigarette butts inside—on their front yard nearly every night, but they could never get a good look at the minivan as it drove by. Edward began keeping records of the littering and collecting the cups, eventually filling 10 garbage bags, reported The Buffalo News. They even installed a surveillance camera, but it wasn’t until neighbors set up a stakeout and captured the license plate number that the mystery was solved. On April 18, police set up their own stakeout and pulled over Larry Pope, 76, a former co-worker of Cheryl’s whom she had had disagreements with. Pope was charged with harassment and throwing refuse onto a roadway. The Pattons said the littering has stopped since his arrest.

It’s Good To Have a Hobby

Bearsun is the name Jesse Larios, 33, of Los Angeles gave to the teddy bear character he created in 2016 and fashioned into a human-sized Bearsun suit. On April 12, Larios decided to have a fun adventure walking from Los Angeles to San Francisco dressed as Bearsun, a journey of more than 400 miles. Mountain passes and road construction have made the trip slower than he expected, reported CNN Travel, and it’s no luxury excursion: Bearsun sleeps wherever he finds himself at the end of the day and gets food at gas stations. “I’m like a puppy, I guess,” Larios said. “I just see something and I chase after it.”

Mistaken Identity

The Krakow (Poland) Society for the Protection of Animals responded on April 14 to a report that a suspected iguana was stuck in a lilac tree outside a residential building, only to discover a discarded croissant instead. “People don’t open windows because they’re afraid it’s going to enter their house,” the caller told the group. United Press International reported the animal rescue agency was forgiving. “It’s better to check and be pleasantly disappointed ... than not react, which can sometimes lead to a tragedy,” the group posted on its Facebook page.

wood and soup can they were plugged into. It wasn’t clear who had left the object. On Facebook, park police noted, “Although humankind and the visitors to New Jersey’s state parks appreciate an extraterrestrial warning device like this, we should not be finding them in our state parks.”

Least Competent Criminal

Cordell Coleman, 33, was arrested for public intoxication on April 14 in Little Rock, Arkansas, and was held until about 2:30 the next morning. When he was released from the Polaski County jail, Coleman took the first car he came across: an unmarked Little Rock Police Department SUV that had been left unlocked. The Smoking Gun reported that police tracked the car to an apartment complex about 10 miles away, where Coleman was found in the car. He was brought back to jail and charged with felony theft, this time in lieu of $25,000 bond.

Bright Idea

Nathan Finkel called 911 on April 17 to report that Courtney Wilson and another person showed up at the gate of his expansive mansion in suburban Fort Lauderdale, Florida, claiming that they were having a wedding there that day. “I have people trespassing on my property,” Finkel said. “They say they’re having a wedding here and it’s God’s message. I don’t know what’s going on.” According to the South Florida Sun Sentinel, Wilson, the groom, had inquired about buying the estate, listed for $5.7 million, several weeks ago, then asked Finkel if he could use the backyard for his wedding. Finkel said no, but Wilson and his betrothed, Shenita Jones, sent out online invitations anyway, with festivities beginning at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday and continuing through brunch on Sunday at what they called “the Wilson estate.” “The guy figured it was a vacant house and didn’t realize (Finkel) lived on the property in a different home,” explained Town Attorney Keith Poliakoff. Wilson was told to vacate the property and was not charged with a crime. p

History Mish-Mash

1. What Roman Emperor made Christianity the official religion of the empire? (a) Julius Caesar (b) Nero (c) Constantine 2. The Soviet Union lost how many people in WWII? (a) 20 million (b) 10 million (c) 30 million 3. The signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact is often cited as humanity’s darkest hour. What two nations signed it?

Spanish explorer Balboa was the first European to reach where? (a) The Pacific Ocean (b) Canada (c) East Africa

This word usually brings to mind narrow-mindedness, unreasonableness, bigotry, and prejudice, but its beginnings were a little less caustic. Seems Nicolas Chauvin was a soldier of France, and thoroughly devoted to his leader, Napoleon Bonaparte. After Napoleon was exiled for the last time, Chauvin couldn’t stop talking about how his great leader was wronged, thus antagonizing his war-weary fellow-countrymen. These days, if a male chauvinist pig had a Napoleonic complex, he could simply be called a short-sighted bore.
