Is the guy (I'm assuming it's a guy) who is covering the Asian Baseball Cup for the Daily Times of Pakistan. There is a non-bylined "staff report" about Sri Lanka's 15-7 win over Iran in Rawalpindi.

Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Iran, Thailand, and Hong Kong are competing for one spot to play in the Asian Games in Doha, Qatar from December 1-15. Five teams have already qualified, although I can't find them listed. I'm guessing that Japan, Korea, China, and Taiwan are four of them. The Philippines could be the fifth.

The photo accompanying the story, what in the world is happening? I went to a baseball game, and a tumbling exhibition broke out.

I think the pitcher is covering home on a runner trying to score on a wild pitch.

Since Derek Jeterajapakse amazingly threw out the standing baserunner Jeremy Giambiramasinghe in a crucial match, Sri Lankan baseball coaches everywhere have emphasized a unique sliding technique that borrows from Pete Rose and Greg Louganis.
