McGair: Late high school hockey games affect more than just media members

December 16, 2012

For those in the sports’ media business, there’s no beating around the bush – reporting Rhode Island high school hockey is always a game of catch-up.
Translation: Game takes place late Friday night; game doesn’t hit the newspaper pages until Sunday. Such a cycle repeats Saturday with Monday’s edition representing the earliest chance to get something on the record.

McGair: For new PawSox manager DiSarcina, communication is vital

December 14, 2012

It’s no secret that the art of communication is key to managing the Pawtucket Red Sox. Naturally the interaction with the players is a high priority, yet there’s also touching base with the major-league coaching staff or the front office, or with someone from the player development sector or even the Double-A manager.
No wonder why several of Gary DiSarcina’s predecessors made sure to have their cell phones close by while batting practice took place. It’s a 24/7 lifestyle wherein the PawSox manager must be on standby at all times and ready to field inquires from all walks of baseball life.
