BOSTON (AP) — It’s the year of the disappearing tennis superstar.
First, Bjorn Borg called it quits at age 26. Now, Billie Jean King, 39 years old and feeling “my life’s running out” says the women’s 1983 tour is probably her last.
Unlike Borg, though, it won’t be a feeling that she’s tired of tennis that takes her out of the game. Rather, she says, it will be a desire to make a belated entry into other areas.
“My time’s running out, and I’ve got a lot to do, so here I am, 39, I’m still playing tennis,” she said Tuesday. “I want to do something else with my life, too. I’ve always had a sense of urgency and I just want to have time to reflect and think and sit back and maybe do some reading.
“I like to go and visit with other people, people that are involved in business, in sports, in politics, and just listen to them. It would be fun.”
Borg was 4 years old when King first broke into the top IO in the U.S. women’s rankings.Connors downs Gerulaitis in Molson Tennis Challenge
TORONTO (AP) — Jimmy Connors defeated Vitas Gerulaitis 6-0, 6-1 and Gene Mayer, a last-minute
replacement for defending champion Ivan Lendl, downed Brian Gottfried 6-2, 6-0 in opening matches of the $250,000 Molson Tennis Challenge.
In the other preliminary match, Peter McNamara topped Mats Wilander of Sweden 6-1,3-6,6-3.Curran advances in Virginia Clasic
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Fourth-seeded Kevin Curren defeated Peter Elter of West Germany, 6-4, 6-2 to highlight first-round action the $300,000 United Virginia Bank Classic.
In other matches, No. 5 Johan Kriek was upset by Erie Fromm 6-4, 7-6; sixth-seeded Steve Denton rallied for a 7-6, 6-4 decision over Terry Moor; Roscoe Tanner downed Bruce Manson 6-2, 3-6, 7-5 and No. 8 Brian Teacher eliminated Van Winitsky 6-3,6-1.Royal, Hayes named to coaches Hall of Fame
NEW YORK (AP) — Woody Hayes and Darrell Royal, who each guided their teams to two national championships, along with longtime Arkansas Coach Frank Broyles were named to College Football Hall of Fame.
Hayes, who won national titles at Ohio State in 1954 and 1968, compiled an overall record of 238-72-10. Royal coached at Mississippi State for two years, Washington for one year and at Texas for 20 years. His Longhorns won national titles in 1963 and 1969. Broyles was the head coach at Missouri in 1957 and spent the next 19 years at Arkansas, compiling a record of 149-62-6.Loyola still winless, but trying hard
BALTIMORE (AP) — It’s a character-building season for the Loyola College Greyhounds and Coach Mark Amatucci.
Just a year after he directed the local Calvert Hall High School team to a 34-0 record — with what many experts said was the best team in the nation — Amatucci finds himself at the other end of the spectrum.

It’s sort of like stripping Jim Thorpe of his Olympic medals.
This was a gross injustice which required seven decades to rectify — and then never fully.
Now baseball is tainting the image of Mickey Mantle — just as it sullied the reputation of Willie Mays — by saying that Mickey can no longer put on a New York Yankee uniform with a big “7” on the back in any sort of official capacity as long as he works at a certain job.
Ifs been 3li2 years since the same ban was applied to Willie because he decided, as has Mickey to take a public relations job with an Atlantic City hotel and gambling casino, duties largely confined to promoting golf tournaments and doing community work with kids.
According to baseball law, as interpreted by Commissioner Bowie Kuhn, this is evil, risking consorting with bad influences, setting bad examples for young kids who make baseball stars their idols.
It’s picayune. It’s
Mackey claims money not earned
AUSTIN (AP) — Former University of Oklahoma football player Willis Ray Mackey claims he earned $1,200 a week as a summer-time oilfield security guard but did not have to do any work.
Oklahoma head coach Barry Switzer said Mackey’s story is “pure science fiction” and termed it “completely ridiculous.”
Speaking from his office at Norman, Switzer said, “It’s a lie. It’s just amazing that it’s been created out of Texas 12 hours before signing date.”
Mackey said Oklahoma assistant football coach Rex Norris arranged for the job with Frontier Drilling Co., which he said is no longer in business.
A blue-chip running back from Luling in 1978, Mackey signed a Southwest Con
ference letter of intent with Texas but ended up going to the University of Washington.
Mackey transferred to Oklahoma in 1980, quit the team a year later and enrolled at Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos. He told Austin television station KTBC he is one semester away from graduation.
Norris could not be reached Tuesday for comment. The university will not comment on the claim by Mackey, according to OU Sports Information Director Mike Treps.
“He has made the allegation and that is not the sort of thing we would comment on,” Treps said.
Treps said he knew nothing about the alleged situation, but “football coaches

short-sighted, unrealistic, just as was the sacrosanct Olympic movement when it was cleansing its soul by stripping an underprivileged Fox and Sac Indian of his prizes in the Stockholm Games in 1912.

accepting $12 and
change for playing semi-pro baseball after leaving Carlisle Institute. This dastardly act spoiled the purity of amateur athletics.
What a farce. Since they originated in ancient Greece nearly a century before Christ, the Games have been a source of cheating, commercialism and national aggran
Recently, at the urging of America’s Olympic chief Bill Simon, the medals were restored — some 30 years after Thorpe’s death — in a moving ceremony in Los Angeles. The family immediately began feuding over the spoils.
Poor Jim. He died without ever receiving official credit for the great deeds he performed.
Now how else can baseball chastise Mickey and Willie, two of the greatest baseball players of modern times, both All-Star
sluggers on winning teams, both firmly ensconced in baseball’s Hall of Fame?
Maybe they can remove their plaques from Cooperstown.
It would be little less demeaning than the action which leaves the impression — intended or not — that, in accepting jobs where people legally gamble, they are fraternizing with the mob.
By innuendo it besmirches their character.
“I thought it was wrong when it happened to Willie,” said Mantle. “But since they did it to Willie, they had to do it to me. I have no bitter feelings. I told the commissioner so.”
Kuhn is an ethical man. He is a lawyer and, as such, seems to make decisions in the legal context.
Ifs hard to visualize that these two baseball greats could ever — knowingly or
unknowingly — do something to hurt the game in their current capacities.
Gambling, like it or not, is legal. Little old woman play slot machines. Secretaries enter office pools at Kentucky Derby time and during the football
season. People crowd Lotto and OTB parlors. It’s part of modern life. The wheelers and dealers, the bad guys, sit in smoke-filled rooms pouring over charts and seeking an edge.
Theirs is a different world than that of Mickey and Willie. So what’s the big fuss?

are always getting summer jobs for players at various rates of pay. This occurs at colleges all over the country. If the kid was offered a legitimate job and the guy who hired him didn’t care whether he was working or not, I don’t know that that would be a violation” of NCAA rules. “I would think that it would be up to his employer on whether he worked or not.”
Mackey told the Austin television station the NCAA has talked to him about his allegations. NCAA officials would not confirm a conversation with Mackey but an official told the station that schools can arrange summer jobs if the players actually perform the work they were hired to do and if their pay is comparable to that of other employees.
