DALLAS -- Major-league umpire Steve Palermo and a former pro football player were shot early yesterday while trying to help two women who were being robbed.Police said the two men, trying to be good Samaritans, were shot near Campisi's Egyptian Restaurant in Dallas. Four men were arrested in connection with the shooting.Palermo, an American League umpire who worked the Texas Rangers-California Angels game Saturday night, was listed in serious condition yesterday at Parkland Memorial Hospital after undergoing surgery for a gunshot wound in the back, said head nurse Pat Deshong.

First baseman-outfielder Mike Marshall remained absent from training camp yesterday but said he would be back in camp today.Marshall confirmed that he had talked with manager Joe Morgan and general manager Lou Gorman Wednesday about the possibility of walking out because of his frustration as a bench player. But he says the reason he left the park without permission Wednesday was family business.Specifically, Marshall had to attend to his wife, Mary. Winter Haven, Fla., police charged her with "removing a police barrier" Wednesday afternoon at Chain O'Lakes Park.

The timing of Nike's new commercial, which features an HIV-positive marathon runner, placed against last week's disclosure that four-time Olympic gold-medal diver Greg Louganis also is carrying the virus that causes AIDS is, to be sure, coincidental.Nevertheless, the Portland, Ore.-based athletic apparel giant is receiving a great deal of credit -- all deserved -- for venturing onto potentially dicey ground -- attempting to remove some of the stigma attached to the deadly virus by showing an HIV-afflicted person in an everyday light.

Don't expect manager Johnny Oates to do much, if any, lineup juggling in the next few weeks.That's not because the Orioles' hitting has been great through the first 20 games, but rather because hardly anybody on the team is hitting well enough to justify being moved in the order."

For a guy on the verge of making his first major-league start, pitcher Mike Oquist was a pretty relaxed fellow in the Orioles' clubhouse yesterday, watching television and even getting in some light reading.After his start against the Cleveland Indians was washed away by yesterday's steady rain and resulting postponement, Oquist was philosophical, especially because there are no guarantees that he'll get another chance."Sure, you're disappointed," Oquist said. "It's your first big-league start, and you get rained out. I've got to sit back and wait my turn.

Baseball's "Operation Speedup" won't start until two weeks from today, but this year's All-Star Game provided an early indication of what to expect. Fewer runs, better pitching and more emphasis on defense.Those ingredients, however, won't kick in until next year, when the operation's second phase (a higher pitching mound and more liberal strike zone) is scheduled to take effect. That's when baseball takes its big gamble -- sacrificing offense.The National League's 3-2 victory Tuesday night was recorded in two hours and 40 minutes -- 13 minutes faster than the average game the first half of the season.

If the early, and very preliminary, returns are any indication, baseball will have to go to the second phase of its speedup plan to have an impact in the American League.The past weekend was the start of what is expected to be a trial run in an effort to pick up the game's pace. But, contrary to some belief, there were no new rules to be enforced.Instead, the commissioner's office issued a set of guidelines intended to quicken the game without undue distractions. They revolve mainly around eliminating 20 seconds between each half-inning, making pitching changes quicker and getting the hitters and pitchers to avoid unnecessary delays.

OPERATION SPEEDUP. No kidding fans, that's what baseball moguls proclaimed last July as the National Game deteriorated into the National Boredom."Fewer runs, better pitching and more emphasis on defense," that's what long-suffering spectators were promised.The result? Let us quote Orioles pitcher Mike Mussina: "Smaller strike zone, smaller ball parks, bad pitching, bigger hitters, loaded baseballs, corked bats and higher-altitude cities. . . Does that about cover it?"Indeed it does. Operation Speedup has turned into Operation Slo-o-o-w down.
