an understatement. Belden, who improved to 3-17 with the convincing win, rapped 10 hits in the top of the first inning, with 11 men crossing the plate in their half of the frame. And that was just the tip of the iceberg. After the Bud Light defense collected the first two outs in the top of the second with minimal damage, Belden scored 11 of their 13 runs in the inning with the benefit of just one out left at bat. The two-out charge included a towering threerun home run over the left-centerfield fence by third baseman Steven Hawks that made the score 18-0, erasing all doubt about the game’s outcome. Belden hammered out 31 hits to account for their 28 runs, while the Bud Light team collected 14 hits and had eight runners cross the plate before the game was halted one inning short of a full game.

A View From The Bleachers Maryland’s Shooting Star By Ronald N. Guy Jr. Contributing Writer Leonardtown MD, 19 June 1986: A 13-yr-old boy was enjoying his summer vacation like many of his classmates, basking in the afterglow of his graduation from grade school and nervously anticipating the beginning of high school later that summer. There was no reason to think this day would start with anything other than a casual awakening from a long night’s sleep sometime in late morning, ideally just in time for “The Price Is Right”. But this day had other plans. Sometime shortly after the ungodly teenage hour of 9am, the boy’s little sister, knowing her brother was an endless sports fan, burst opened the bedroom door and asked flatly, “Do you know someone named Len Bias?” The boy, clearly irritated both at the ignorance and timing of such a question, snapped, “Uhhh, yeah, he’s only the greatest player in Terps basketball history!” Little sister’s innocent and unforgettable reply: “He’s

dead.” It’s hard to do Len Bias, the basketball player, justice with words. Time has faded the memories of those who saw him and the two decades since his death have given rise to a generation of sports fan who only know the name and the legend. Bias was a taller, stronger and equally athletic version of Michael Jordan. I’m sure many will scoff at such a casual comparison to His Airness. So I’ll defer to legendary coach Mike Krzyzewski who, when asked to name some opposing players who stood out in his twoplus decades as head coach of Duke University named two: Michael Jordan and Len Bias. He wasn’t just the best player in Maryland basketball history; he’s on any reputable list of the greatest players in the history of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC). After four stellar years at Maryland, Bias was the 2nd overall pick in the 1986 NBA Draft. Two days later, with a blindingly bright future before him, he died in a Maryland dorm room of cocaine intoxication. Every year

since, when the calendar flips to June and with another edition of the NBA Draft pending, Bias slips back into our consciousness, either from our own internal clock cueing his memory or from an inevitable mention during NBA Draft coverage. This year felt eerily familiar. Like 1986, Boston won the NBA championship before this year’s Draft, its first title since Bias’ death. It’s almost as if it took the Celtics 22 years to recover from the tragic loss of their next great player. Bias could have been the bridge from the Larry Bird era into the next great period in Celtic lure. He could have been Boston’s answer to Chicago’s Jordan. He could have been… Bias has been dead now longer than he lived, yet this ghost of a man still compels us to ask, “What could have been?” It’s almost as if we’re expecting, at any minute now, that chiseled, 22-yr-old Lenny Bias to run out of the tunnel and appear on the parquet floor of Boston Garden to answer that question. But Len’s gone and he left far too

Photo By Chris Stevens

“What might have been?” Brian Tribble placed the 911 call the morning of Bias’ death. He pleaded with the dispatcher; “This is Len Bias…you have to get him back to life…there’s no way he can die.” His pitiful, desperate voice captured the enormity of this possible tragedy. But the unthinkable happened: Bias did die. And in death he became a cautionary tale, for countless future generations, of the price of a reckless decision. Rest peacefully Len…your lesson lives on, but damn I still miss you. Extra Innings: He began walking on September 16th, 2007 in New York City. After ten months, 24 pairs of shoes and 40lbs lost on the way, he stopped on June 21st, 2008…in San Diego, CA. Former New York Giants Defensive Tackle George Martin walked across America and raised $2 million to benefit the first responders to the terrorist attacks in New York on September 11th, 2001, many of whom are experiencing health problems from exposure to the toxic dust prevalent in the aftermath of the attacks. Now that’s walking with a purpose. Send your comments to rguyjoon@yahoo.com

performed super-human feats on the basketball court. Yet in death he proved as fragile, as human, as any of us. The same heart that carried him tirelessly through so many epic on-court battles was the same heart that gave out under the strain of excessive cocaine use. It wasn’t cumulative; there was no gradual disintegration. It took but one bad decision. One bad decision and in a blink a shooting star faded to black. That is Len Bias’ legacy, his lesson. The young are naturally carefree, even reckless at times. There are moments in a young person’s life when they are confronted with circumstances that offer very divergent paths. Perhaps it’s a high school or college party, where peers are experimenting, as young folks often do, with sex, alcohol or drugs. Maybe it’s a decision to drive or rely on a sober friend to get home after a few at the local bar. These are moments when Len Bias’ memory can speak to us. In these moments, he has never been far from my mind. Len Bias taught me it takes only one lapse in judgment and any of us, even those that seem immortal to impressionable young eyes, can leave behind loved ones pondering that same question Maryland basketball fans have been asking for 22 years:

managed just six hits through the first six innings of the game before scoring two runs on four hits in the bottom of the seventh inning to avoid the shut out. Aside from the offense clicking, the Bud Light defense turned three double plays that prevented SWAT from getting any momentum going when they did have runners on base.

early. Recalling the death of Len Bias means different things to different people. For the non-sports fan it was at least a terrible waste, the loss of a young life with so much promise left unrealized. For me, it was the loss of my childhood sports hero. I was that 13-year-old boy whose little sister woke him on that fateful June morning 22 years ago. Never again would I, or likely any my peers, view sports through a child’s innocent eyes again. Suddenly it was a world of big business, big money and endless temptation. In death Bias left us with a lesson that couldn’t have been taught as well in life. Believe what you will about Bias’ drug use. The naysayers will allege a young man losing control, succumbing to a temptation accompanying his sudden fortune and fame. I’ve heard enough from reliable sources to believe his cocaine use was a rare, if not an isolated incident, an example of a young man who suddenly had it all, believed himself invincible, got caught up in the moment and made a tragic mistake. The death of Len Bias taught me all I needed to know about drug use and cocaine. For the young today, for who Bias is but a myth, heed his warning. Here was a man of unrivaled strength and athleticism who

Red Cross Disaster Services Recruiting Volunteers to Operate Local Disaster Relief Call Center The American Red Cross is the only non-governmental organization mandated by the U.S. Congress to “alleviate human suffering” of victims of disasters such as fires, floods, hurricanes, and technological and transportation crises. To continue its humanitarian mission for support of over 20 ongoing disasters inn the United States, Southern Maryland Chapter has activated its Disaster Relief Call Center in La Plata. We are recruiting people who want to make a difference as a volunteer and help people directly in the affected disaster areas without having to go to that location. With today’s technology we can effectively complete the Red Cross mission anywhere in the US without leaving Southern Maryland,” said Mike Zabko, CEO of the Southern Maryland Chapter. “Volunteer recruitment is an ongoing effort. It is essential that we have trained responders. During a disaster is not the right time to find out we are not prepared!” Zabko continued. This ten-station center is one of only 28 call centers in the nation. All calls will come in from the American Red Cross hotline, 1-866-GETINFO, and a call agent (Red Cross Volunteers) will provide information, referrals and relief support to individuals and Red Cross units affected by disaster. “We’re proud to have the opportunity to directly serve those affected by a disaster in another part of the country,” said Mike Zabko, CEO of the chapter. “We may get calls from hurricane-damaged areas in Florida or from fire ravaged California and many other disasters across the United States.” This call center, which is a part of the 1-800-REDCROSS Network, provides volunteers living locally with

Qualified Verizon phone customers who order Verizon High Speed Internet service online with a connection speed of up to 768 Kbps (kilobits per second)* with a one-year commitment will get the first month of service free then pay $12.99 for the next six months and $17.99 for the remainder of the year. The same one-year commitment applies to Verizon’s up to 3 Mbps (megabits per second) service, which is available online for $29.99 a month with the first month free.

Each two-service combination is priced from $64.99 to $79.99 a month, depending on the combination of services purchased.

And, for $139.99 a month, a customer can order Verizon Ultimate Freedom.

Ruest responded to the residence where the suspect vehicle, a red 1992 Toyota Corolla, 4 door sedan, was located and spoke with the owner of the vehicle, Stanley Paul Drummond, 43 of California. The Toyota Corolla had damage consistent with the damage involved in the hit and run accident. Drummond denied driving the vehicle and denied being involved in an accident. Further investigation and witness statements placed Drummond driving the vehicle in the area and time of the accident. A motor vehicle check revealed there was no current registration for the Toyota Corolla and Drummond did not have a current valid license to operate a motor vehicle in Maryland. Drummond was

arrested and charged with operating a motor vehicle without a license, driving a motor vehicle without current registration and leaving the scene of a property damage accident. Once at the detention center Drummond insisted on reporting the 1992 Toyota Corolla stolen, claiming someone stole his vehicle and wrecked it. Ruest explained to Drummond the evidence indicated he was the operator of the vehicle and was the one involved in the hit and run accident. Drummond continued to insist his vehicle was stolen and he wanted to report it stolen. With no evidence Drummond’s 1992 Toyota was stolen, police asserted, he was charged with making a false report of a crime.
