LINCOLN â€“ June 17, 2011 is one of the most memorable days of Kody Nordbyâ€™s life, and itâ€™s not just because that was the day he graduated from Woonsocket High.
Rather, itâ€™s what happened immediately after he received his diploma. Nordby hustled to the Holiday Inn in Mansfield, Mass. to make his amateur debut against Mark Johnson of Brighton, Mass. at the AFOâ€™s (American Fighting Organization) Summer Brawl II.
PAWTUCKET â€” The story on Saturday afternoon wasnâ€™t so much that the Pawtucket Red Sox assembled a mammoth sixth-inning rally to snag a 7-1 Game 1victory over the Rochester Red Wings at McCoy Stadium, but instead that David Ortiz played a key role in it.
The 37-year-old designated hitter, on a 20-game rehab stint with Pawtucket after suffering a right Achillesâ€™ injury in a triumph over the Chicago White Sox last July 16, delivered a two-run ground single to right to help his club extend its lead to 4-1 â€“ and continue Pawtucketâ€™s finest-ever start to a season.
