After waving bye-bye to radio play-by-play man Joe Angel, Orioles fans will hear Kevin Brown call 50 games on the Orioles Radio Network this year. No, not Kevin Brown the pitcher (who made a brief stopover in Baltimore in 1995), and no, not the Kevin Brown who co-owns the Station North Arts Cafe.

It’s the Kevin Brown who does commentary for ESPN’s coverage of high school football, college football, college basketball and college hockey, and has served as lead broadcaster for the Syracuse Chiefs, the Triple-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals.

Orioles legend Frank Robinson, who died earlier this month of bone cancer, will be honored with a public celebration of his barrier-breaking life and donations to museums dedicated to civil rights and African-American culture, the team announced today.

Players, now participating in workouts in Sarasota, Florida, will have a commemorative patch with Robinson’s number 20 on the sleeve of their jerseys for all spring training and regular season games.

There likely won’t be any front-page farewell tributes to Dan Duquette, the former executive vice president of operations who the Orioles yesterday announced would not be returning.

Unlike former manager Buck Showalter, whose contract was also not renewed, Duquette never had clever turns of phrase or outwardly embraced the city in a way fans could appreciate, remembrances¬†mentioned in The Sun‘s story weighing fans’ reactions to the skipper’s departure. Duquette was the strait-laced baseball man, and in interviews, he seemed as careful about what he didn’t say as much as what he did, sometimes making him come off as affectless.

As this bitterly awful Orioles season winds to a close, it comes with the realization the city of Baltimore may be seeing the last days of center fielder Adam Jones in black and orange.
