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.

About this time every year, Del. Samuel I. "Sandy" Rosenberg heads south to the Oriole's Fantasy Camp in Sarasota, Fla. He plays catch with Brooks Robinson or Boog Powell or one of the other former Oriole stars. He catches a few rays and then heads back to Maryland overflowing with inside baseball stories, spouting numbers and speaking a new language: on-base average; Gold Glove (trust him) catcher's skills; and, sometimes, tales of the "frozen rope" (a line-drive base hit). It's the kind of break a legislator needs in the middle of a grueling 90-day session of lawmaking.

THEY DON'T gamble on currencies at Mercantile Bankshares. Sure, they know how. They would be extremely good at it, unlike Allfirst Financial, which just flushed $750 million into the Inner Harbor. But why trouble? For Mercantile, foreign exchange trading is a frivolous bother that would subtract more in risk and distracted management than it would add in prestige and profit. Mercantile makes enough money as a traditional bank to have to set up a George Soros fantasy camp in its basement.

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.
