Ex-Red Sox ace pitcher Martinez pays visit to PawSox

April 28, 2013

PAWTUCKET — It’s hard not to read into Pedro Martinez’s presence at McCoy Stadium on the same weekend that pitcher Alfredo Aceves reported for Triple-A duty.
Despite the angina that Aceves has caused through a series of outbursts and bizarre mound antics, there’s at least a part of the Red Sox brain trust that believes Aceves is salvageable. Their challenge is how to unwrap this enigma in order to prevent future episodes.
This is where Martinez, the former Red Sox superstar, now a special assistant to general manager Ben Cherington, could prove to be the coaching staff’s ace in the hole.

NORTH SMITHFIELD — Eleven days away from league competition did very little to slow down North Smithfield on Friday afternoon.

Backed by the splendid three-hit pitching of junior ace pitcher Karissa Carlton and a 13-hit attack fueled by seniors Tara Larson and Jaime LaFazia, N.S. raised its first-place Division II-North record to 5-1 by rolling to a 9-1 victory.

McGair: Zammarelli's on radar of Major League scouts

April 26, 2013

A little of this, a little of that …

A different type of circus has come to the intersection of George Washington Highway and Old River Road, the characteristics of this particular traveling company unlike the sights and sounds appearing beneath your garden-variety big top.
Sorry to disappoint the youngsters, but you won’t find any elephants, flying acrobats or lion tamers here.
