PAWTUCKET â€” The diary of a young soldier from Woonsocket detailing his experiences during World War II has livened up a Shea High School history class far more than any textbook ever could.
No one remembers exactly how Emilian Larue's leather bound diary ended up at Shea. By chance one day, history teacher James Matuszek was perusing a shelf in the history department office that held books and videos on WWII. â€śI pulled out some books and the diary fell out,â€ť said Matuszek. â€śI started to read and realized, 'Wow, this is incredible stuff.'â€ť
PAWTUCKET â€” It was deemed a terrific Sunday afternoon showdown between two of the premier pitching prospects in the minors today: Pawtucket Red Sox righty Allen Webster, called by Baseball America Bostonâ€™s No. 2 hill prize, and Indianapolisâ€™ righthander Gerrit Cole, the Piratesâ€™ top overall prospect.
The pairing didnâ€™t disappoint, at least not early on. Through the first three frames, Webster had retired nine straight, the final four via whiff, while Cole had yielded a harmless, leadoff double to Brandon Snyder in the second.
This past Saturday was a busy day for the Rhode Island high school outdoor track & field circuit. Below is a list of how area participants fared.
