Fuller, who had missed 10 workouts prior to Monday with a . pulled Achilles tendon, partici- - pated fully in the work. He had been dressed for practice on Monday, but last night returned to his first full speed practice. Also back for at least limited work were offensive guard Jeff Madden, who has been missing 1 with a sprained knee, and linebacker Zack Spratling, who is ; still limited somewhat with a shoulder ,'njury. ' Head coach George Maclntyre - was pleased with the total effort of the squad in its last open prac- - tice before the Maryland game .; on Sept. 12. Beginning tonight, when the Commodores will held ' a major scrimmage to set the depth chart for the opening . game, all practices will be closed to the public. ton Astros their sixth straight victory, a 3-2 decision over the New York Mets last night Now that Ozzie Smith has won a Gold Glove for fieldicg excellency, his next goal is to become a .300 hitter. , "I'd like nothing better;" said the San Diego shortstop, who also realized another ambition earlier this season when he represented the National League in the All-Star Game in Cleveland. However, the most marketable and popular Padre isn't likely to reach that goal unless his productivity at the plate picks up. IT DID appear that Ozzie was headed in that direction during the First half of the majors' split season when he hit .303 in a five-week surge. But, a slump followed and the young man who batted -258, .211 and .230 his first three seasons has been been struggling to stay at .250. "I know he would like to be a .300 hitter," said teammate Rick Wise, "but he doesn't have to be. Not when you field like he does. He's the most acrobatic shortstop I've seen in my 16 years in the major leagues. There's no shortstop in baseball who can Held better than he A ) Bui does." Padre general manager Jack McKeoa also knows that the 5-10, 155-pounder Isnt your ordinary major league baseball player. Last year when rumors persisted that McKeon might trade Smith to St Louis for Garry Templeton and Tony Scott McKeon was pelted with angry calls from fans protesting the possibility. IT ISNT only the Padres who like the look of Ozzie Smith. His talent is recognized in every - clubhouse in the league. "Forget the stats," says Los Angeles manager Tom Lasorda. "Oz-zie's worth three hits a night to San Diego. That's how many base hits disappear into that glove." No one doubts that Smith would become the No. 1 shortstop In the National League if , he develops into a .300 hitter. ; Besides being awarded a Gold Glove last season, he broke a 56-year-cld major league record ., for shortstops when he recorded 621 assists, 20 more than Glenn Wright of Pittsburgh in 1924. A shortstop who plays deeper than most shortstops. Smith was the only guy in the league last year to figure in . more than 100 double plays, ending up with 113. THE LITTLE guy is a speed- -ster, too. He stole 57 bases in 1S80 and has stolen 125 in three seasons, an average of roughly 42 a year. ' ."..'. "I could do better," says Smith, "if I just wanted to run up stats. But I want to win and it's kind of hard for me to try to ' build up stats on the bases while we're losing." WHILE SMITH Is concerned over his inability to hit .300, he is realistic. ? ;;;: "Look, I'm young," h explained. "I've had to learn the hard way. Remember, I only Elayed 63 games in the minors efore I got the call Thank goodness I have enough sense to , listen to people who know how to help a guy improve "Everybody" who is concerned about my future' has told me that I should choire up on the bat, shorten my swing and bunt more." ; v HAVE YOU been takin'gSr advice? ,. - "Yeah," he replied. "WJtf&i went on that spree in the spring I choked up and widened "my stance, and it worked. Unfortunately, I went back to rftyold .ways and started, struggling again. - '. " '':"i?TVi' ' "But, that setback taught me one thing. I am not a -power hitter. That is very evident Do you know, that the next lidme run I hit will be only my second in the big leagues?" Yes, Ozzie, we do. Better still, though! is the fact that you do. UUUM7 SZfAZAJUZJ ZZJZ-ZAZ.'UZJ 's Lin. mi, i.l , i,i,.,.n,li.

Ali's Return NEW YORK (AP) In a press conference subdued compared with the previous circus-like shows that nave marked his career, three-time heavyweight champion Muhammad All said yesterday that he will return to the ring Dec. 2 to fight Trevor Berbick in the Bahamas. Ali, 39, has been unable to get a boxing license from any state commission except South Carolina since being stopped In 11 rounds in a title fight against World Boxing Council champion Larry Holmes last October in Las Vegas. Sounds' Finale J Gets Rained Out CHATTANOOGA It took more than Vh hours of work, a protest, and finally an injured player before umpires eventually decided to call last night's Southern League game here between Nashville and Chattanooga due to wet grounds. Despite a heavy thunderstorm which pounded a virtually unprotected field at Engle Stadium for more than two hours prior to game time, Lookout officials refused to cancel the meaningless regular-season finale because it had attracted one of the largest audiences of the season approximately 4,000 fans. But after Chattanooga leadoff batter Robbie Alvarez slipped and twisted a knee while rounding first base on a fly ball to right field, umpires John Hughes and Brian Cobb decided to call the game. The contest had started at 10:37 p.m. EDT. NASHVILLE SOUNDS' manager Stump Merrill had announced he was playing the game under protest because of its poor and dangerous condition.
