Some 30 years ago, Gary Davies, Henry Gershman and Rick Vacek lived in the same dormitory at the University of Maryland, College Park. They may be older these days, but weekly from April to October, for 30-plus games, the longtime friends do just what they started doing in the 1970s: meet on a softball diamond. The trio, plus Henry Gershman's brother, Has, are the core of the Baffutos, thought to be the longest-tenured of the 250 slow-pitch teams that form the Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks Softball League.

TEARS SPILLED FROM Shirley Gershman's eyes and her voice became thick and husky. But she continued talking to the audience of eighth-grade Sunday school students, and they rode through the emotional storm with her."Howard was just like you," she tells them, "and just like you, he was not invincible. He got AIDS. But you do not have to get it. You hold your future in your hands."Acquired immune deficiency syndrome took her brilliant starburst of a son, Howard Ashman, and Shirley Gershman has responded to tragedy with a vow to spare other mothers the anguish she has endured.

The name of the book is "Diamonds. The Evolution of the Ballpark. From Elysian Fields to Camden Yards." It's a big job (9"x12 1/2 "), so there's room for lots of words on the cover. And it's big in so many other ways, too.A year ago, a book on Oriole Park was released, and it proved a solid effort. Before that, it was "Green Cathedrals," a hit. Back a ways was "The Ballparks," which doubles as a terrific doorstop.One might guess this sudden spate of books on a subject pretty much ignored for a century qualifies as overkill, unnecessary duplication.

They sang songs from Broadway and movies in the presence of Oscar, glossy totem of all their ambitions.During the break, they gathered around it, close enough to see their breath fog the sheen.

Theatre On The Hill at Western Maryland College is presenting the musical classic, "Fiddler On The Roof," in Alumni Hall Theatre through July 18. The show is visually handsome to look at with its quaint village set and earthy costumes. The small orchestra under the direction of Alison E. Shafer has a good sound.Reprising his role as Tevye for the third time is local performer, Ira Jay Gershman. Gershman garnered plaudits for his excellent, in-depth performance as the beleaguered Jewish father in the Dundalk Community Theatre's version of the musical in May of 1991.
