BALTIMORE (AP) - In his first year with the Baltimore Orioles, Brian Roberts played shortstop alongside third baseman Cal Ripken, Jr., who was in the final year of what turned out to be a Hall of Fame career.

Now in his first season with the New York Yankees, Roberts is lining up next to shortstop Derek Jeter - who's putting the finishing touches on what appears to be a Hall of Fame career.

The 36-year-old Roberts returned to Baltimore on Friday for the first time since signing with the Yankees as a free agent in January. The move came after he played 13 injury-plagued seasons with the Orioles.

Roberts said before the game, "It's kind of a new chapter of life. I'm certainly excited to be back."
