Chemawa Golf Course fun to play

July 31, 2011

NORTH ATTLEBORO – The mission of Chemawa Golf Course is simple.
“If people think it’s fair, they’ll come back,” Chemawa owner Glen Burke was saying over the weekend. “A lot of older guys have said ‘I went somewhere and the rough was so high and thick that I was tired by the end of the round.’ [At Chemawa] you’re not going to be tired, you’re going to enjoy yourself.
“My thought is that when they come into the parking lot, they forget about their worries and enjoy themselves,” Burke added. “I think that’s true as based on the number of car doors and trunks that open.”

Lars Anderson 'daydreamed' about near deal

July 31, 2011

PAWTUCKET – Lars Anderson made four trips to the plate Sunday, every one of them transpiring in a Pawtucket Red Sox uniform.
For someone who spent Saturday night bidding farewell to teammates and contemplating a future in Oakland, Anderson spent most of Sunday morning trying to make sense of the unstable trade winds that had rocked his universe. One minute the first baseman was standing in the batter’s box in McCoy Stadium. Then came word that Anderson was involved in a trade that would have sent starting pitcher Rich Harden to Boston.

Louisville bats PawSox around

July 31, 2011

PAWTUCKET – Not even the nifty baserunning maneuver that Ryan Lavarnway pulled off the eighth inning could yield a smile on the face of PawSox manager Arnie Beyeler.
Truth be told, Lavarnway’s ability to avoid the tag while sliding into second base represented the lone highlight in Pawtucket’s 7-2 loss to Louisville Sunday afternoon. The power-hitting catcher had his eyes on second base after lining a bullet down the left field line. The throw from Bats leftfielder Felix Perez was there with plenty of time to spare, but Lavarnway was able to dance around the tag and get a hand on the bag.
