Everyone is a rookie sometime in their life. In baseball, the term is often used scornfully -- in other sports it just denotes a beginner.At Brunswick Normandy Lanes, one Tuesday league is named the Rookies, and no one seems to know why the name was chosen.Reda Wiles, league secretary for the past three years, is no rookie no matter how you figure it. Rookies don't bowl in tenpin leagues or in duckpin leagues like Wiles.She has bowled duckpins for a long time and tenpins since 1986. Her tenpin average is 164 with a career high game of 257 and a high series of 581. In duckpins, Wiles carries a 113 average with a high game of 181 and a high series of 424."

Phillips Wright noted that the proposal drew more attention than any other he can remember. He said that the board had to base its decision on zoning, however, and not on neighbors' objections or the support of Rookie League fans.

NEW YORK -- The Ottawa Senators may be the worst team in the NHL, but their leading scorer, Alexei Yashin, is one of the league's best players under pressure.Yashin, a 20-year-old rookie, scored the winning goal for the Eastern Conference All-Stars in the NHL's 45th All-Star Game with 3:29 to play yesterday."It is very hard to realize what I did now," Yashin said through a Russian translator. "Maybe in a few days, a week or a year, I'll feel the importance of it. But right now, all I know is that just to have played in this game means more to me than scoring 500 goals."

"He's changed my mechanics a little bit."Brown said, "When he first came to us, he dragged his arms. His kick was real high and he wrapped his left leg around his push leg on the rubber.
