WOONSOCKET â If you havenât practiced your two-step in a while, the time to brush up is now.
The Main Street Block Party, just two days away, will feature a dozen stages with different kinds of music going on all at once, and thereâs sure to be something for everyone to dance to.
âItâs a potpourri of musical performances, from big band to oldies and jazz to rhythm and blues,â said Albert G. Beauparlant Jr., co-chairman of the event. âFrom 60s music to contemporary, thereâs something for everybody.â
PAWTUCKET â Follow the trail of pixie dust and it will lead you directly to the home clubhouse at McCoy Stadium.
The good times continued at the ballpark Monday night as the PawSox staged a 2-1 walk-off win over the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders. Pawtucket trailed 1-0 heading into the bottom of the ninth before receiving a game-tying sacrifice fly from catcher Ryan Lavarnway and a game-ending RBI single by Mark Hamilton that came on a 3-2 pitch.
PAWTUCKET â For PawSox manager Gary DiSarcina, seeing Derek Jeter propel himself through the rehab process this past weekend helped conjure up one pleasant memory after another.
âI hadnât seen him in a while, but the first thing I thought of when I saw him was âMan, heâs a classy individual,ââ DiSarcina expressed. âIn my mind, he and Cal Ripken Jr. were the torchbearers. Cal handed it over to him, and not because Derek won, but itâs the way he won.
