JASON LATIMER is standing the magic world on its head, and he's doing it with one of the oldest tricks in the book. He performs cups and balls -- a sleight of hand that uses three cups to mysteriously switch the locations of three or four balls -- only he does it with clear cups.

Your browser does not support iframes. The hand is faster than the eye, which Juan Uribe could well tell you. It was Uribe who was caught with the ol' hidden-ball trick Saturday by the Tampa Bay Rays. Uribe was standing on third base, basically just changed his weight from one foot to the other on the bag, and in that split second in between was tagged out by a gleeful third baseman Evan Longoria. The play did not end up costing the Dodgers, though you can be sure they spared no effort in giving Uribe plenty of grief for his gaffe.

New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez was pulled from Saturday's game against the Boston Red Sox after he was hit in the leg by a ball during batting practice. Rodriguez was fielding balls near third base at Yankee Stadium when he was struck by a grounder hit by Lance Berkman . "He was scratched with a contusion on his lower left leg and underwent X-rays which were negative," Yankees spokesman Jason Latimer wrote in an e-mail. There was no decision on when he would play again, Latimer said.

The Los Angeles Sports Council asked fans to vote on the greatest moments of the year in L.A. sports, and the winners were named Sunday night at a dinner in Century City. The Dodgers and Lakers were hard-pressed to come up with many great moments. Voted the greatest moment for the Dodgers was Jeff Kent's 2,000th hit. The Lakers' greatest moment was the return of Phil Jackson. Jeanie Buss, representing the Lakers, said, "OK, maybe I voted more than a few times."

Before the start of the fifth Professional Scouts Foundation dinner Saturday night at the Hyatt Century Plaza, magician Jason Latimer entertained at a VIP reception by performing the old "balls and cups" trick, with a twist. The cups were glass, so those watching could see the foam balls disappear right before their eyes. Among those witnessing the act was Bobby Cox, manager of the Atlanta Braves, who finished five games behind National League East champion Philadelphia last year.

They gazed, transfixed, as a woman seemed to float in midair, then disappear. Gasped as a lightbulb danced in the darkness. Applauded when a ball vanished from one cup, then appeared in another.
