It's not surprising that fans voted Brooks Robinson the best defensive third baseman ever in balloting conducted by Rawlings last year. What might surprise some is that the Orioles great will accept his all-time Gold Glove in York, Pa., instead of in Baltimore, the town in which he dazzled at the hot corner. He is the only living honoree who will accept his award at a minor league park. The decision might further the perception of an uncomfortable relationship between the Orioles and one of their most beloved former players.

A nightclub insurance mogul charged with fraud will remain detained after prosecutors alleged that bomb-making equipment and musings on killing discovered after his indictment — along with notes about disappearing in Croatia — made him too risky to release. The Wednesday hearing in federal court in Baltimore marked Jeffrey B. Cohen's first appearance since the allegations of an apparent plot to attack a Delaware judge and another elected official became public in an unsealed search warrant.

Cal Ripken would have made Eddie Gaedel proud. Almost as proud as his orthopedist. Participating in a packed afternoon fan forum at yesterday's FanFest at the Baltimore Convention Center, Ripken fielded a question about his myriad batting stances. A topic that has frequently irritated the Orioles third baseman throughout his career this time elicited a chuckle while bringing him out of his chair. "I've been working on a new stance. Want to see it?" At that, Ripken went into a convoluted crouch -- even for the Iron Man of 1,000 stances -- that included a deep knee bend with him hunched over so his elbows were no higher than his knees.

EMMITSBURG -- We are ready for the worst. People who had been through it before said it would be tough. Grueling. We smile, innocently. And after the first session of Wes Unseld's/Gatorade Fantasy Camp, we pooh-pooh, "Piece of cake!"THE ORDEAL: The 35 campers -- 33 men and two women -- ardivided into four teams as Unseld, the Washington Bullets coach, thanks all for signing up, explaining, "I have to thank you, because I don't have any idea why anybody would want to do this."No sooner is the welcoming address over when we are stretching and knocking off two laps around Knott Arena on the Mount St. Mary's campus.

From time to time people ask if it bothers me that I'm bald, and I can honestly say that it does not. Not in the least. I had bad haircuts when I had hair, and no great success with the opposite sex. It was only after I lost my hair that things started happening for me. Eventually, I was even able to get married and have children.Oddly, nobody ever asks how I feel about being short, possibly because it is perceived that there is no remedy for shortness, no equivalent of toupees or hair weaves, no Height Club for Men.The fact is, I hate being short and would tell anyone who asked.

The Rev. Berkley Ford showed up at the parish hall in uniform -- an Orioles uniform.He figured wearing his Fantasy Camp 1991 uniform was only appropriate: He and dozens of other fans gathered in Elkridge recently to divvy up their group-owned Orioles season tickets.Unable to afford a full season alone, thousands of fans each year share ticket plans, joining forces to purchase subscriptions -- 81-game, 29-game and 13-game plans are sold -- from the Orioles, then subdividing the tickets among themselves.

Happy 187th, Mr. Lincoln.* "The American Experience" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., MPT, Channels 22 and 67) -- "The Wright Stuff" is a quiet look at Wilbur and Orville Wright, who took time from their jobs making bicycles to invent the airplane.

PBS.* "Partners" (9:30 p.m.-10 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- In a sweeps week coup that can't be making NBC happy, Jennifer Aniston of "Friends" shows up as a new girlfriend who asks Bob (Jon Cryer)

"I'm so happy my husband doesn't know who I am," Carolyn Williams said. No, she's not a misbehaving housewife on some tacky TV show. Williams was attributing her fresh rush of cheer to her participation in the inaugural BSO Academy, which wrapped up an intensive week of activities for adult amateur musicians with a "donor appreciation concert" and party on Saturday at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. Nearly 50 people from around the region paid up to $1,650 for this new community outreach venture by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, a camp for grownups who wanted to take their musical interests to a different level.
