Fantasy Camp

I WENT TO the Ripken Minor League Experience expecting to see the Iron Man, and I ended up seeing two of them. Cal Ripken was there, of course. He needs no introduction. But if somebody had told me that diminutive Del. Sandy Rosenberg, a Democrat from Baltimore, would catch five games in four days, well, I might have thought twice about showing up with my sorry work ethic. Rosenberg, 54, is something of a fantasy camp junkie, enough so that he unabashedly appeared in a skit at the Legislative Follies in Annapolis last month in his Orioles jersey, so I wasn't surprised to see him on the bus to Staten Island on Wednesday night.

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.

FORMER ORIOLES second baseman Bill Ripken can only hope it's true that what goes around eventually comes around, because he has issued a rather interesting challenge. Ripken unfortunately remembers that I was the Orioles beat writer for The Sun during a good portion of his Orioles career, and - as athletes are prone to do - only seems to recall that I occasionally was critical of the team's performance during the early 1990s. That seems like a long time ago to me, but it is fresh enough in the minds of the brothers Ripken that they have devised an evil plan to get revenge, and Bill was on the phone Monday explaining why it would be only fair that I went along on their new minor league fantasy bus tour (May 11-15)

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)

"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.

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.

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.
