CUMBERLAND - It was perfectly understandable why Cumberland High skipper Paul Murphy seemed so dejected on Friday afternoon.
His ace, senior southpaw Dylan Boisclair, pitched respectably, but didnâ€™t have the usual mustard on his fastball or relish on the curve. The infield made some plays, but also erred once, and the Clippers as a whole allowed Hendricken to run the bases with impunity.
All of that resulted in the Hawks remaining unbeaten with a 6-1 thumping of the Clippers at Tucker Field, in Division I-North play.

FOSTER â€“ Anthony Manzo is seated in a vintage leather barber chair with his muscular right arm extended in front of him as tattoo artist Robert Young prepares to go in.
Clean-cut and bookish-looking in his thick-rimmed eyeglasses, Young gives off the demeanor of a doctor as he pauses for a moment, studying Manzoâ€™s arm with quiet intensity. Youngâ€™s hands are covered in black rubber gloves, one of which is holding aloft a metallic device that looks like some sort of oversized hypodermic.

A little of this, a little of that â€¦
There are some sports writers and columnists who believe that one of the jobâ€™s requisites is to put themselves in the shoes of a professional athlete. Itâ€™s as if the power of the pen and computer grants these gatekeepers of the locker room the ability to read millionaireâ€™s minds or to step inside their bodies.
And thatâ€™s when the real trouble ensues.
