Either way you say it, among the racers he loved, Jim Fitzgerald was a gentleman--and a gentle man. Bob Sharp, who builds and owns the cars that Fitzy drove with actor Paul Newman, probably summed up Fitzgerald's philosophy as well as anyone when he said: "He was a man who wanted to race forever." Fitzgerald, 65, was the oldest driver in a major racing series when he was killed Sunday during a Trans-Am sedan race on the St. Petersburg Grand Prix downtown street course.

He could be seen at the club several days a week, dropping as much as $500 in a few hours on tips and drinks.

Why does Bill Russell continue to use Todd Worrell in the ninth inning? Is management forcing his hand? I know it is hard to pay a guy millions of dollars a year to go home and eat pickles and ice cream, but for the team's sake, eat the money and put some talent in there. LUCKY KALANGES, Los Angeles In continuing to rely on Todd Worrell as his closer, Bill Russell would do well to recall one of the definitions of "insanity": doing the same thing over and over again, but somehow expecting the results to be different.

Milwaukee Bucks owner Jim Fitzgerald announced today that he is putting the National Basketball Assn. team up for sale. "We want very much for someone in Milwaukee . . . to buy the Bucks," he said in disclosing the move. Fitzgerald said he thinks that the demise last week of the SportsVue cable television network, which the Bucks operated in Wisconsin along with the Milwaukee Brewers baseball team, hastened the decision.
