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.

NOTEworthy Day:Changing of the guard continues for the Orioles with the departure of Bob Brown as director of publications (he'll continue to edit the Oriole Gazette with a high degree of professionalism) and Ken Nigro as director of special projects. Nigro will remain in charge of the midwinter fantasy camp and the team's promotional cruises. Had they been placed in the expansion draft, both would have represented first-round choices.* If you're interested, the football referee who made the appropriate but unusual call that extended the Towson State-Northeastern game to one more play, which was decisive, was Robert Lynch of Ridgewood, N.J. . . . No man has done more for sports in Baltimore than Zanvyl Krieger, once an owner of the Colts, Orioles and Clippers and helpful in the building of Towson Golf and Country Club, but more important his philanthropic work at the Krieger-Kennedy Institute transcends the fun and games.

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. Not the best or most enthralling "American Experience," it's still interesting stuff. 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)

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.

"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.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Most of the Orioles took the winter off. They worked on their golf swings. They bought new cars. They did whatever it is that 25-year-olds do when they earn more than 25 schoolteachers put together and don't have to get up until noon.But what did Jack Voigt, the hardest-working man in show business, do on his winter vacation?Played ball. Fought a batting slump. Got ripped in the papers. Worried about dodging election-related violence in Venezuela. Oh, and got shaken awake one night by an earthquake measuring 5.8 on the Richter scale.

The Ravens believe they are on the verge of making the NFL playoffs, and by the midpoint of the 1998 season, they should have a pretty good idea about the validity of those projections.The regular-season schedule released yesterday by the NFL shows the Ravens will be tested early and often, particularly by their AFC Central Division rivals.The team will christen its new stadium at Camden Yards at 1: 01 p.m. on Sept. 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the reigning divisional champions who have beaten the Ravens in three of their four meetings.

PHILADELPHIA - Over the course of eight years bookended by Olympic gold medals in Athens, Ga., and Athens, Greece, the most important question facing the U.S. women's soccer team was usually "What's next?" That question has been replaced by "What now?" With no major tournaments scheduled for the next two years, no professional league to keep newer players in the public eye and some entrenched personalities ending or winding down their careers, the team that bushwhacked its way into mainstream sports consciousness wants to keep from getting lost in the jungle of the marketplace.
