BALTIMORE—Brady Anderson was born in Maryland, and though he only lived here for a year, he’s spent so much of his adult life creating happy memories for Orioles fans that he was a natural to be added to the Maryland State Athletic Hall of Fame.
This year’s class was announced Tuesday, and Anderson joins famed sailor Gary Jobson, University of Maryland football and NFL player Louis Carter, Wheeler Baker (powerboating), Laurie Schowoy (soccer) and Jack Thomas (lacrosse).
Jim Henneman, the longtime sportswriter for the Baltimore News American, Baltimore Evening Sun and Sun, was named the John F. Steadman Lifetime Achievement Award winner.
Anderson, who was born in Silver Spring, moved to California as an infant, and played for the Orioles from 1988-2001, hit a then franchise record 50 home runs in 1996.
“It’s become my second home, there’s no doubt,” Anderson said. “The only team I really care about. The only team I want to work for.”
Anderson is currently the Orioles Vice President of Baseball Operations.
“I think of myself as an Oriole more than as a Marylander, although I spend half my time here, more than half my time,” Anderson said.
“A few times it came close where I could have been playing for someone else, I couldn’t picture myself going into any other stadium as a home player, except for Camden Yards.”
Henneman, who often serves as official scorer for Orioles games, has witnessed more of the team’s games than anyone.
The induction is on Nov. 3 at Michael’s Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie. Tickets are $75.

BALTIMORE—Chris Tillman, who threw on flat ground Monday, will do that again Wednesday. Manager Buck Showalter said that trainer Richie Bancells and pitching coach Dave Wallace have constructed his rehab program.
Tillman, who is on the disabled list with bursitis of the right shoulder, is eligible to return on Monday, but he won’t.
If everything goes well, Tillman will start throwing on a mound this weekend, but don’t expect him back on Sept. 9 or 10 as Showalter indicated last weekend in New York.
“That’s the earliest,” Showalter said of Sept. 9 or 10. “I don’t think that will happen…After seeing the schedule, I see what they’re trying to do, and they’re right. Chris feels good, and I want to make sure…We have to cross over a couple of thresholds to get to that date.”
Because the minor leagues end on Monday, Tillman will have to rehab with the Orioles.
NOTES: Showalter spoke with Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations Dan Duquette about roster expansion. Rosters can be expanded on Thursday.
Showalter indicated that Duquette spoke with him about some possible trades, but none involve players currently on the Orioles. Players must join a new team by midnight Wednesday in order to be eligible for the postseason.
Even though the Orioles have been shuffling relief pitchers recently, Showalter said the team isn’t expected to recall a large number of players.
Catcher Caleb Joseph will be recalled from Norfolk, and outfielders Julio Borbon, who along with pitcher Logan Ondrusek were outrighted to Bowie on Tuesday and Chris Dickerson could be added.
In order to add Borbon or Dickerson, space must be made on the 40-man roster. If Joey Rickard, whose injured thumb will be examined Friday isn’t ready to return, he could be placed on the 60-day disabled list, creating a roster spot.
Showalter also indicated that Brian Duensing, who is on the 60-day DL, is going to be added, and space must be made for him.
“I don’t know if anybody is going to make better 40-man roster additions than [Darren] O’Day and Tillman and Rickard. That’s the three guys we’d like to add,” Showalter said.
