The turquoise roof of its grandstand rises like a mirage from the panorama of sand, sagebrush and Joshua trees. If corn grew on the desert floor surrounding Mavericks Stadium, the scene would be right out of "Field of Dreams." The reflection from cars approaching the ballpark, single file down a street called Stadium Way, forms a gleaming band of light that stretches back to an exit off Highway 395.

* SAN BERNARDINO The Bug, really a 34-year-old big-rig truck driver. Says his only professional training was "27 episodes of American Bandstand." Very energetic. Second-best in the league, behind Rancho Cucamonga's Tremor. * HIGH DESERT Wooly Bully. Decent costume. Good with kids. Not a professional talent. * BAKERSFIELD Roger the Dodger and Dodger Dog. A feud appears to be brewing. The characters seem to prefer to steer clear of each other.

At the junction where Rochester Avenue runs into Jack Benny Drive--no, really --there is love in bloom. The new ballpark is a real beauty. The Rancho Cucamonga Quakes of Class A's minor leagues are about to play their very first baseball game. A life-sized bronze sculpture of Jack Benny stands in the lobby. A current Hollywood star who owns a piece of the team is in his luxury box. A marimba band is giving everybody good vibes. And "Mister Trash" is patrolling the aisles.
