Lots of history, tradition at Pawtucket Country Club

August 14, 2011

PAWTUCKET — In this town, Pawtucket Country Club is to golf as Fenway Park (or Yankee Stadium) is to baseball.
Legends have long resided on this plush piece of greenery located on the city’s border with Seekonk. Caddy master Jim Tanner has been working the room since 1952. You can still find him downstairs almost any day of the week, taking care of clubs and caddies.

August 14, 2011

The Cumberland American team that waltzed its way to Bristol, Conn., had gone missing in action.
Sure, the pitching and defense were still present, but the merciless offensive attack that became the theme of Cumberland’s state title run was nowhere to be found. The Rhode Island champions dropped two of their first three pool-play games in the New England regional tournament, standing perilously close to the end of a memorable summer.
But just when manager Dave Belisle’s club needed them most, Cumberland’s bats awoke from their ill-timed slumber. The rest, as they say, is history.

ON TO WILLIAMSPORT!
