Baseball CLEVELAND — Cleveland Indians manager Mike Hargrove, whose team has the best record in baseball the last three-plus seasons, got a long- awaited contract extension Tuesday despite the team's early struggles this year. Hargrove, 47, in his sixth full season as Indians manager, received a two-year extension, with a club option for 2000. CHICAGO — The head of the search committee for a new baseball commissioner said Tuesday he hopes to have a choice approved by the end of the current season. "Some people hope by the end of the All-Star break," Colorado Rockies chairman Jerry McMorris said. "I think by the end of the season is a reasonable goal." The ruling executive council announced Friday that Heidrick and Struggles had been hired as the search firm to assist the committee. Madison Square Garden president Dave Checketts said last week he had been contacted about the job. Basketball CHICAGO — Former Notre Dame basketball coach Digger Phelps has expressed interest in the DePaul coaching job left open by the departure of Joey Meyer, according to a report published Tuesday. Phelps, now a basketball analyst for ESPN, told the Chicago Tribune that he has spoken with DePaul athletic director Bill Bradshaw about the Blue Demons post and has tentatively scheduled an informal interview for next week. "I just want them to know how strong my interest is," Phelps, 55, told the newspaper. "And what I want to know is how serious they are to making a commitment" to winning. Phelps, who retired in 1991 after 20 years at Notre Dame, called DePaul "a sleeping giant." EDINBURG, Texas — Delray Brooks, a four- year assistant under Rick Pitino at Kentucky, was named Tuesday as the head men's basketball coach at Texas-Pan American.

Pitino left Kentucky last week to coach the Boston Celtics. NEW YORK — Brian Williams of the Chicago Bulls was fined $5,000 by the NBA on Tuesday for making an obscene gesture during the Bulls playoff game at Atlanta on May 11. Williams fouled out with 7:03 remaining in the game and thrust his right arm in the air while crossing it with his left. Moments later, he made a similar gesture but appeared to be stretching his arm. The fine was imposed by Rod Thorn, the NBA's senior vice president for basketball operations. Tennis ROME — The clay courts of Europe are again bringing out the worst in America's top players. Pete Sampras and Michael Chang, ranked Nos. 1 and 2 in the world, lost in straight sets Tuesday at the Italian Open — the first time in the tournament's history the top two seeds went out in the first round. Sampras, who has always struggled on clay, was jeered in his error-filled 7-6 (75), 6-4 loss to compatriot Jim Courier — his second consecutive clay-court defeat this season. Chang, who also prefers hard courts to clay, was ousted by 54th-ranked Hernan Gumy of Argentina 6-3, 6-2 for his second straight first-round loss on the slow surface. Escaping the upset trend were No. 4 seed Yevgeny Kafelnikov, No. 11 Boris Becker and No. 14 Tim Henman. But two top clay couriers, No. 13 Felix Mantilla and Andrei Medvedev, were eliminated. BERLIN — Steffi Graf, pleased with neither her shots nor her effort, played her first singles match since being sidelined by a knee injury and needed three sets to beat Chanda Rubin at the German Open on Tuesday. Her strokes shaky all match, Graf lost eight of the first nine points before recovering to beat the American 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 and advance to the third round of the $927,000 tournament. Track TORONTO — Ben Johnson is running to the courts in a bid to run on the track again. The 35- year-old banned sprinter has filed an application with an Ontario court charging track's world governing body and Athletics Canada with keeping him from making a living by imposing a lifetime suspension. A hearing is scheduled for May 27 in a Brampton, Ontario, court, a lawyer representing Johnson said Tuesday.
