The baseball ground rules are different in Cambodia. A ball hit off the water buffaloes grazing in the outfield is in play, but a ball lost in the adjoining rice paddy is not. And timeout must be called whenever a motorcycle approaches on the dirt road that cuts through the outfield. "You can't put it in perspective with words," said Jim Small, managing director for Major League Baseball's operations in Asia. "You just need to see it." But even then you can't always believe what you're seeing.

Tony Szabo scored six goals Monday night at the Pond of Anaheim, but a light-scoring, last-second replacement stole the show at the Roller Hockey International All-Star game. Anaheim Bullfrog defenseman Joe Cook, who was supposed to be lounging at the Colorado River, recorded a hat trick, including the winning goal with 35 seconds remaining, to lead the West past the East, 14-12, before an announced 9,406. It was the second-smallest All-Star game crowd in the four-year history of the league.

The Bullfrogs got away with assorted defensive lapses in their first two Roller Hockey International games, but Saturday night at the Forum the Blades exploited them. Forward Kevin St. Jacques and defender Ross Harris had hat tricks and the league's stingiest goaltender, Jeff Ferguson, stopped 35 shots as the Blades handed the Bullfrogs a 9-5 loss in front of an announced crowd of 4,329. The Blades' victory may have sounded, perhaps, like a new threat for the Bullfrogs.

A couple of weeks ago, Joe Cook drew the wrath of Bullfrog owners when he left the club in the middle of a playoff run to play for the United States in the World Inline Hockey Championships. Cook led the United States to a gold medal, scoring four goals in the championship game against Canada. Here, some were thinking of firing him. After Friday night, all is forgotten.

The Bullfrogs' third-quarter goal was enough to beat the Phoenix Cobras, 6-5, in a Roller Hockey International game Tuesday at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Phoenix.
