I somewhat doubt it, because unless my math is off, earth shrunk to the rough size of a billard ball would have a difference in equtorial/polar diameters of almost 0.5 mm, which would produce visible wobble when rolling. Unfortunately I could not find official specifications of how a pool ball is supposed to be shaped -- since you obviously could, mind sharing the ruleset?

That said, even if you're right, your point is moot, because it doesn't change that a globe isn't 100% accurate.
