SP/HEALING -- Monica and Ben Barlow during an Orioles' game at Camden Yards in Baltimore, MD. Baseball always played an important role in Ben Barlow's relationship with his wife Monica, who was director of media relations for the Baltimore Orioles. At home games, Barlow would often sit alone, waiting for Monica to visit in the middle innings to chat about their respective days. “If I was going to see her during the baseball season, I’d better be at the game,” he says. Barlow would often take in 40 or more home games a year, plus several road trips and spring training, in order to be with Monica. Monica was dignosed with lung cancer in Sept. 2009.
