July 11, 2013

NORTH SMITHFIELD — After steamrolling its opposition in its first eight games by a combined score of 107-17, Chris Bodington knew that his Cumberland All-Star team needed to sweat out a close contest somewhere down the line if it planned to take on the finest teams in New England in the extra-competitive Eastern Regionals.

July 11, 2013

LINCOLN – Nick Zammarelli boarded a plane Thursday night fully confident that he made the correct decision – one that figures to benefit him in the long run.

College life featuring side orders of education and baseball at North Carolina’s Elon University beckons for the 18-year-old Zammarelli following a spring and summer that can be best summed up as a whirlwind.

July 9, 2013

PawSox: DiSarcina following in the big-league footsteps of previous PawSox managers

July 8, 2013

PAWTUCKET – Sometimes, he’s simply carrying out marching orders from those above him. Other times, he engages in small talk, a sign that allows the ballplayers to comprehend that, yes, this particular minor-league manager will “have our backs if we heed his expectations.”

You see it during batting practice when PawSox skipper Gary DiSarcina sprays fungos to the infielders while standing not too far from the batting cage. A bum shoulder prevents DiSarcina from throwing a round or two. He makes up for it in other areas such as assuming an even greater instructional role.

July 6, 2013

Parks and Recreation Director Michael Crawley confirmed earlier in the week that everything’s in place for the council to gather this coming Wednesday night. The hope is that this special meeting will bring the town one step closer to commencing a construction project that some will say is long overdue.

Sanabria is dominant in 5-1 Pineview win

July 5, 2013

PAWTUCKET – Pineview Big League skipper Joe Clark admitted his club didn't exhibit the kind of superb defense he expected from a lot of high school players in a 3-2 victory over East Greenwich on Tuesday night.

Sure, Clark and Co. won the game, but they looked rather shaky doing it.

That's why he chose to have a short conference with his young men prior to facing Edgewood/South Elmwood in the R.I. Big League (15-18) All-Star Tournament's winners-bracket final at the Doreen A. Tomlinson Athletic Complex' Presidents' Field on Friday night.

Brian Doyle back in the winner's circle at Arnold Mills Road Race

July 4, 2013

CUMBERLAND – The old phrase “Familiarity breeds contempt” took a beating at the Arnold Mills Four-Mile Road Race on steamy Fourth of July morning.

Perhaps a better way to put the overall mood after Northeastern University junior-to-be Brian Doyle, the 20-year-old son of former Ocean State marathon great Bobby Doyle, crossed the finish line in a cautious but solid winning time of 21:07: The mutual admiration society.

Toti's double gives Burrillville 1-0 victory over CNLL

July 3, 2013

BURRILLVILLE — When skipper Bob Gelinas and the rest of his brethren within the Burrillville Little League were busy choosing their All-Stars a few weeks ago, one name kept coming to the fore.
Gelinas felt Cameron Toti, a mere 11, had all the tools to represent the Burrillville squad. He could play multiple positions well, hit the ball more solidly than others his age and had a quiet confidence about him.
