89 Probe electric bug

Hi,
This is my daughter's friend's car
They boosted it in reverse polarity
The main fuse (80 amps) blew, I replaced it but now the alternator is not charging.
The car starts(when boosted) but, when I disconnect the booster cables the volt meter gradually goes down and then the engine dies.
Is there another fuse link I missed or something else to be checked.
Thanks in advance

You need a new alternator and battery.
