POBTS Alzado, The Fighter DENVER All-Pro defensive end Lyle Alzado of the Denver Broncos said after Saturday's boxing exhibition with Muhammad Ali he would meet with Broncos officials and announce today or tomorrow whether he would retire from football to take up a career in the ring. He has not signed a contract with the National Football League club, which begins summer drills this week, but his comments about retirement are not aimed at getting more money from the team, he said. "I've always dreamed of being heavyweight champion of the world," he said. "I don't want to go into the ring publicized as the "great white hope.' It sounds corny, but I just want to bring the heavyweight title to Colorado." Dibbs Rolls NEW YORK - Eddie Dibbs rolled over Harold Solomon 7-6, 6-1 yesterday in the final of the $300,000 Forest Hills Invitational to win the biggest paycheck of his career. Dibbs $100,000 prize is nearly double what he had earned all year. Many had expected that it would be a long, drawn-out duel at the baseline. Not so. The match lasted just one hour and 39 minutes. Douglass Shelled DES MOINES, Iowa Former National Football League quarterback Bobby Douglass underwent a rocky initiation in his professional baseball debut last night. Pitching for the Iowa Oaks of the Class AAA American Association, Douglass gave up five runs, three hits and eight walks in three-, innings of work. The 31-year-old left-hander also uncorked two wild pitches, but was not the pitcher of record in an 11-5 loss to Denver. Palmer Keeps Keating BALTIMORE Baltimore Orioles' pitcher Jim Palmer has retained one of baseball's leading player agents in an attempt to extend his contract with the ball club. Ed Keating, the Cleveland-based agent, represents about 35 baseball players, including four on the Orioles' roster. Earlier this year, he negotiated a five-year, $2.8 million contract for pitcher Dennis Eckersley of the Boston Red Sox. f w " v . - t J " ' ; 1 1 i UN Ttlephoto NEW YORK Eddie Dibbs smashes a shot with both hands during hi victory over Harold Solomon in the Forest Hills Invitational tennis tournament. Johncock, Unser Fastest CAMBRIDGE JUNCTION, Mich. (AP) -Gordon Johncock surprised himself with a victory yesterday in the first half of the CART Twin 125-mile races for Indy cars at Michigan International Speedway, while Bobby Unser used a new engine to cruise to victory in the second race. Unser, the pole-sitter for the initial event, blew an engine early in the race. His crew installed a new power plant between races and he never was seriously challenged in the nightcap. Steady Larry Bowers Captures Parbusters Amateur Golf Title Larry Bowers shot a 34 yesterday in a contest shortened by rain for a two-day total of 106 to claim the championship of the sixth annual Parbusters Amateur Open Golf Tournament played at Rhodes Golf Course.
