Cumberland finishes New England pool play at 4-0, will face Maryland in Eastern Regional quarterfinals

July 24, 2013

BRISTOL, Conn. – The final game of pool play of the Little League Eastern Regionals may very well prove a harbinger of things to come.
Yes, the Cumberland Major Divisions All-Stars and the George J. Hummel Little League from Seymour, Conn. still have to get through its respective quarterfinal-round clashes before meeting with a spot in the regional championship hanging in the balance.
After the performance these same two teams staged Wednesday night at Breen Field on the Bart Giamatti Complex, it’s certainly within the realm of possibility that a rematch could be in the fold come Friday.

Manager Dave Belisle's contingent amassed 15 hits, including four doubles and a dinger, and took advantage of eight errors as CALL posted an astonishingly-lopsided 22-5 “mercy-rule” victory over East Woonsocket's best in the R.I. Little League District IV Major Division (10-11) Tournament championship game at Garvin Field.

Pawtucket's Rainville enjoying life following pro baseball career

July 24, 2013

LINCOLN -- Jay Rainville decided, one day two years ago, to put his right arm to the test.

“I knew immediately that it wasn’t going to happen,” he remarked one recent Friday while standing by the home dugout at Chet Nichols Field.

It was the same right arm that in its heyday produced fastballs that lit up the radar gun and generated a resounding pop from the catcher’s mitt. It was the right arm that enabled this Pawtucket native and Bishop Hendricken alumnus to become a No. 1 draft choice of the Minnesota Twins and unlock the door to the exclusive world of professional baseball.
