American Legion makes move to wooden bats

June 15, 2011

This may sound like an altruistic plea, but baseball and wooden bats belong together. Those governing American Legion baseball in this state are inclined to agree, as board members have decided to eliminate the usage of aluminum in favor of a wooden-bat league.
This landmark change takes effect for the 2011 summer session, which is currently under way. Gone is the ringing “ping!” sound that ensues whenever an aluminum bat strikes a baseball. Expect to hear a “crack!” at your local Legion ball field, a natural emanation that figures to add great theater to this season.

Cumberland's Adamonis tees off at U.S. Open

June 15, 2011

Dave Adamonis Jr. knows his younger brother Brad’s golf game as well as anyone.
Growing up in Cumberland, the two siblings, a mere four years apart in age, spent endless hours on the links during their childhood years and beyond. Although more than 1,000 miles separate them now, they still keep in close contact, talking about golf and their personal lives.
“Even though Brad lives in Florida,” Dave said, “we still talk to each other every day.”
