Burrillville's Norton battles shoulder woes in Yankees' system

July 3, 2011

PAWTUCKET – Tim Norton has spent the better part of his professional career battling back from countless injuries. His latest setback is akin to the baseball gods kicking a man when he’s down.
The homecoming originally planned for this weekend never happened. Norton did not pitch at McCoy Stadium for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre before friends and family hailing from Burrillville. Instead, the 28-year-old is toiling under the hot sun in Tampa, Fla., the Yankees’ spring-training facility – Steinbrenner Field – the scene of Norton’s latest attempt to rehab from shoulder woes.
