No contest as softball Lions belt Clippers

April 11, 2012

CUMBERLAND — The softball seasons have passed and the names have come and gone, but one thing you could always count on year after year any time Lincoln and Cumberland played each other was a spirited, competitive duel -- a showdown that was usually going to be decided by one or two runs.
That’s what the small gathering of fans that braved the chilly weather at Wednesday afternoon’s Division I-North affair at Tucker Field expected from the two unbeaten rivals, but what they got was a shocking surprise.

PawSox players weigh in on Guillen's comments

April 10, 2012

PAWTUCKET – Tuesday morning saw a small group of PawSox players huddle around the clubhouse television as a contrite Ozzie Guillen attempted to move past the uproar he caused over supportive remarks the Miami Marlins manager made in reference to Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.
Among those who sat and watched Guillen with great interest were Jose Iglesias and Luis Exposito. In fact, the pair stood side-by-side for roughly 10 minutes before Iglesias plopped himself down into a leather chair, his eyes clearly fixated on what Guillen was saying.

CUMBERLAND — It’s almost eerie how well Cumberland High struck the ball on Tuesday afternoon.
“We hit it pretty well in our second game against Moses Brown, and in the Injury Fund (tilt) against Woonsocket, but I’ve never seen anything like this,” explained senior righty Justin Patrick after the Clippers clubbed 17 hits – including nine for extra bases – in a 14-0 thrashing of still-winless Smithfield High at Tucker Field.

Across the region, a virtually snowless winter has given way to one of the driest springs on record, pushing the region to the edge of drought, raising concerns among farmers and prompting government agencies to issue fire hazard warnings.
